June 23

So, another Saturday, the month of June almost gone and 2012 more than half over.
Where on earth does time go when it's used up?
Does it squeeze itself into another dimension to be recycled or pop up into the past and future to d-r-a-g out those slow days nobody wants minutes before annual leave/school hols?

Saw a pretty decent vampire flick last night called Let Me In, different sort of vamp and not-so predictable storyline, very enjoyable in a blood-lust kinda way.

Today saw the capture of two murderous cattle duffers, brothers Patrick and James Kenniff, who had killed a policeman and civilian who had come after them, Albert Dahlke and Constable Doyle.
More detailed history of the deadly Kenniffs HERE.

1950 and Pig Iron Bob Menzies as Prime Minister oversaw the Australian Communist Party Dissolution Bill which was passed with the prunes on this day.

1866 was the date in the diary for the drilling of the first oil well in the Fair Isle of OZ; it was located at Alfred Flat, Coorong, in South OZ,  due to an algal scum "coorongite" being mistaken for bitumen, with more info HERE.

Next time you're pottering through the area drop in and say Hi to Adrian who owns and runs the Mad Max Museum at Silverton.

I don't recall the museum being in Silverton when we were there although there may well have been something about Mad Max there. I can't quite remember. Silverton is great place to visit.

Time keeps on slippin', slippin' into the future, so says the Steve Miller Band :-).

It's new-ish, Andrew, and Adrian has put together a fab dedication to the Mad Max movies :)

Jayne said...

Ahhh, of course it does, Windsmoke!

Where does time go? It slips into memory banks. We all have them. I thought the Mad Max Museum used to be out beyond Broken Hill somewhere.

Oh. I've just checked my map. Silverton is out beyond Broken Hill....
