A Jewish man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file. The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said:"I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen an Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?""My wife's."''What happened to her?""She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"The Italian man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her."A very poignant and touching moment of Jewish and Italian brotherhood and silence passed between the two men...The Jewish man then asked "Can I borrow the dog?"The Italian man replied, "Get in line."

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love... I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."How soon can I go home?

I'm just grateful, I got to be a part of that era.
Grew up in North Ryde. The drive in movie there, watching the progress on how Macquarie Shopping Complex was being built etc.

Sneaking into the " El Rancho" for a drink, once you did not get noticed by the Big Islander bouncer named " Joe "

So much fun, great memories of Luna Park, catching the Hydrofoil from circular quay across to manly beach. Going to Village Grand Prix car complex, the car drag races at Castlereagh.
Amaroo Park, Oran Park.
Fish and chip shops, with the one big exhaust extractor vent above the cooking vats.
Chiko " fish cakes " etc.

What I don't like about modern society is all the extra pollution compared to 60 years ago. Back then our milk was carried in kegs on back of horse and cart up our street, maybe still warm from the cows from a few blocks away, and we would bring out billies to be filled from the keg. Absolutely no pollution, now milk is brought in plastic bottles, from even another state in refrigerated trucks to go in refrigerators in supermarkets, to be then picked up and often driven home by cars.

Im a bit more Skeptical of the modern Pollution Situation especially the Global warming cult.

I do my best not to waste and over consume which isnt easy with a family of 7. Our footprint is miniscule. The Kids are taught the principle of Stewardship.

I think We forget that we love the Online Shopping world and the fact we do almost everything in real time these days an that there is a cultural cost.

About the global warming cult well where to begin:

The Barrier Reef is retiring in defeat;

My Canadian chippie tells me that some worm is now surviving further north due to warmer temps., this has resulted in a certain bird continually digging up their lawn to get to the worms, is impossible to have decent lawn now.

There are distress signals everywhere. There is only about 25 miles atmosphere with how many cars and factories putting out constant pollution? I consider it so simple.

My fishpond, when I was away for years, built up about a foot of sludge but the fish were quite okay in clear water on top. When I stepped in to clean up all the sludge got stirred up so fish got immediately distressed. Well that Is exactly what we are doing to the biosphere, it took billions of years for that coal, oil etc. to form down there and we are stirring it up (via usage) in a few hundred years.

Music from the 70's was great,

The Ramones
Blondie
Fleetwood Mac
Eagles
Sex Pistols
The Stooges
Roxy Music
Kiss

And so many more, the best thing was buying and album or making a mixtape of your favourite songs. Some you would get off the radio, sit and wait and make sure you hit record and pause in time.

There are bands on both lists that I like (Roxy Music, The Ramones, Rolling Stones) but none of them measure up against Frank Zappa, The Mothers of Invention or Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band.
