July 14 in odds and sods history blather..with added Noni

1917 Seems that before the tosspots were leaving burnt out cars littering their wake they were leaving burnt out ships littering the high seas, as reported by the Ashburton Guardian HERE.

1995 The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island flags were proclaimed as official flags on this day.

1890 Saw the Australian Ballot system STOP voting fraud in Seattle, Washington...nice to know we're helping stamp out naughtiness!

1856 Shock! Horror! William Kelly wrote a succinct letter to the Editor of The Argus supporting the Chinese population in Victoria.

Now do yourself a favour and go watch Noni reading Go The F**k to Sleep.
Some swearing....in case you didn't figure that out.
