Happy New Year to you all!

Here's hoping this year is a more peaceful one that the last one, although
given what is happening in Kenya at the moment, that seems unlikely.

At least David Hicks can make choices now.

It is the holiday season again so pickings have been seriously slim this
week, I guess mainly because folk have been away from work or home. Hope
you all have a good break.

A: Because when they come, they're wild and wet. But when they go, they
take your house and car, boat, dog.

A: Because they don't have any balls to scratch...

Nurse Humor

Top ten reasons to become a nurse:

1) Pays better than fast food, though the hours aren't as good.
2) Fashionable shoes and s*xy white uniforms.
3) Needles: "Tis better to give than receive"

5) Expose yourself to rare, exciting and new diseases.
6) Interesting aromas.
7) Courteous and infallible doctors who always leave clear orders in
perfectly legible handwriting.
8) Do enough charting to navigate around the world.
9) Celebrate all the holidays with your friends- at work.
10) Take comfort that most of your patients survive no matter what you do
to them.

"Welcome to viewers all over the World and welcome to Queensland viewers,

We know that Qld is another country but now it seems to be another planet.


As a teacher, Ms. Jones, was curious about how each of her students
celebrated Christmas.

She called on young Patrick Murphy. "Tell me Patrick what do you do at
Christmas time?" she asked.

"Well Ms. Jones, me and me twelve brothers and sisters go to the midnight
Mass and we sing hymns, then we come home very late and we put mince pies
by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then all excited we go to bed
and wait for Father Christmas to come with all our toys."

“Very nice Patrick”, she said.

"Now Jimmy Brown what do you do at Christmas?"

"Well, Ms. Jones, me and my sister also go to church with Mum and Dad and
we sing carols and we get home ever so late. We put biscuits and milk by
the chimney and we hang up our stockings. We hardly sleep, waiting for
Santa Claus to bring our presents."

Realizing there was a little Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to
leave him out of the discussion, she asked, "Now, Isaac
Cohen, what do you do at Christmas?"

Isaac said, "Well, it's the same thing every year. My family piles into the
Rolls Royce and we drive to my Dad's toy factory. When we get inside, we
look at all the empty shelves and sing 'What a Friend We Have in Jesus'.
Then we all go to Hayman Island for a month."


Some things you just can't explain.

A farmer was sitting in a bar getting drunk.

A man came in and asked the farmer, "Hey, why are you sitting here, on this
beautiful day, getting drunk?"

The farmer shook his head and replied, "Some things you just can't

"So what happened that's so horrible?", the man asked as he sat down next
to the farmer.

"Well," the farmer said, "Today, I was sitting by my cow, milking her.

Just as I got the bucket full, she lifted her left leg and kicked over the

"Okay," said the man, "but that's not so bad."

"Some things you just can't explain," the farmer replied, "I took her left
leg and tied it to the post on her left.

Well, I sat back down and continued to milk her. Just as I got the bucket
full, she took her right leg and kicked over the bucket."

The man laughed, "Again?"

The farmer nodded, and replied, "Some things you just can't explain.

I took her right leg this time and tied it to the post on the right.

Well I sat back down and began milking her again. Just as I got the bucket
full, the stupid cow knocked over the bucket with her tail. Some things
you just can't explain."

"So, what did you do?"

"Well," the farmer said, "I didn't have anymore rope, so I took off my belt
and tied her tail to the rafter.

At that moment, my pants fell down and my wife walked in ... Some things
you just can't explain."


The average price of a pint of bitter in Britain's pubs ... gulp!

The average price of a pint of bitter in Britain's pubs could increase from
around £2.20 to as much as £4 next year, the industry has warned.

The massive hike, which is also expected to affect cans bought from off
licences, is due largely to increased prices of key ingredients barley and
hops - in part because farmland is being turned over to
environment-friendly biofuels.

But brewers are also suffering from rises in fuel costs and the price of
the metals used to produce kegs and cans. Kegs are now so valuable that
they have become a target for thieves, who stole 60 million this year to
melt down for their metal.

Mark Hastings, director of communications at the British Beer and Pub
Association, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "Food prices have
increased dramatically and that has affected, for us, the price of barley
and hops, which have rocketed tremendously. "But on top of that, we have
also got increases in commodity prices, so for example, with the kegs and
cans that we put beer into, the cost of metal has escalated dramatically.
"On top of that, because kegs are such valuable items we are losing a lot
of them - about 60 million a year are being thieved at present to smelt
down into metal. "Then we have also got things like fuel prices, which
affect both the cost of producing the beer in the first place and then
transporting it to and from pubs, because beer is quite a bulky product
and it actually costs quite a lot to drive it to and from places. "All
these factors have increased the cost of being a brewer quite
dramatically. Brewers have been clinging on for the last two years, trying
to contain prices and we have seen consolidation in the market - brewers
buying out other brewers to try to contain costs. We have also seen job
losses in the sector -
about 2,000 have gone this year. "But now there is no more to carve out of
the business so the only thing that we are able to do is to put prices up.
Nobody wants to do it. The last thing the industry wants is more expensive

Mr Hastings said the price hike came against a general decline in British
beer sales, with some 14 million fewer pints a day being served in pubs
than in the past.



Our Cash
Which art on plastic
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Cartier watch
Thy Prada bag
In Myer
As it is in David Jones
Give us each day our Platinum Visa
And forgive us our overdraft
As we forgive those who stop our MasterCard
And lead us not into Sportsgirl
And deliver us from Portmans
For thine is the Dinnigan, the Akira and the Armani
For Chanel No.5 and Eternity

Our beer
Which art in bottles
Hallowed by thy sport
Thy will be drunk
I will be drunk
At home as it is in the pub
Give us each day our daily schooners
And forgive us our spillage
As we forgive those who spillest against us
And lead us not into the practice of poofy wine tasting
And deliver us from Tequila
For mine is the bitter
The chicks and the footy
Forever and ever
