Friday Feb Five fully fruity, frank, fresh, filthy and foul.

Some more smut.
But, remember; it's quality smut.

The sexual life of a camel
Is greater than anyone thinks
At the height of the mating season
He tries to get up the sphinx
But the sphinx's posterior passage
Is blocked by the sands of the Nile
Which accounts for the hump on the camel
And the Sphinx's mysterious smile
1893 Exploring the subject on crap a little longer...the good people of Melbourne were rejoicing with great jocularity in the streets when they were connected to a sewerage system.

1954 The Queen Elizabeth Islands in the North West Territories were named after Queen Liz.

In lurve....
1980 Codename Intrepid aka Sir William Stephenson, master spy, inventor, inspiration for James Bond, was honoured with The Order of Canada on this day.
Read some fab details on the fascinating chap HERE.

1996 NZ's first LGBT news programme, Express Report, later known as Out There, began.

Old look-out tower on original Eastern Hill Fire Brigade, Melbourne.

2005 The Federal Govt released the Welcome to Country guide for strangers to learn more about the many Indigenous Peoples of Oz.

 
 Polly Woodside.

2006 Hawke's Bay was not quite rockin' all over the world but it was rocking to the 4.4 sized earthquake that made itself known at 1.29pm.

Something something opposite St Pat's cathedral.

Last one...major supermarkets flogging Granny Smiths, Packham Pears @ $4.95 kg.
HA!
Carnegie fruit shop (in the arcade on the Rosstown Pub side of Koornang Rd)  letting them go @ $1.49 kg.
In.Your.Face big conglomerate!

The fire museum could make a lot of money if they opened the tower to the general public.

Here's one from my own childhood that we used to recite to our teachers...

There was a young woman from Bude,
Who went for a swim in a lake,
A man in a punt,
Stuck his pole in the water,
And said, "You can't swim here it's private."

lol at Brian's ditty. Interesting about the supermarket costs of the apples. We have started going to a fruit shop and butchers three suburbs away. Am over fruit and veg and meat from the supermarket.

I like the idea of supporting the smaller business. Also have noticed a huge difference in taste just as much as the cost for the meat and fruit and vege. As in it taste better from the small locally owned business.

My friend and I were recently discussing about technology, and how integrated it has become to our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.

hahahah quality smut indeed. Thank goodness for 1893. I might go take the kidletts to Scienceworks tommorrow come to think of it :)

Yay for smaller fruit shops, especially if they're local (not a national chain) and selling local produce. I shop at the local when I can afford to, sometimes their veg are more expensive than the supermarket, but much tastier.

Love the ditty.

They'd get a lot of mother-in-laws being dragged up there for a look-see, too, Andrew :P

LOL, Elizabeth ;)

Oddly it doesn't rhyme, Brian, if you just substitute some words....

Exactly, Janine, we've found hunting around the small independents can save quite a big of money;)

Ta, Anonymous.

Thank goodness, indeed, Cazzie, or we'd be up to our necks in it the way the pollies get infrastructure built these days!

Absolutely, River, and glad you enjoyed it ;)
