You CAN teach an old dog new tricks

Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks was wrong. My old dog Rosie has recently developed a bit of a bad habit... farting. The problem is that she sleeps in the garage where, being an Aussie bloke, I happen to spend a bit of time myself. After all, that's where the beer fridge and the drum kit is!

Anyways... she started dropping some wonderful smells which made it difficult to share my humble garage with her. I got the idea that I might be able to train her so I started sending her outside each time she dropped one. It didn't work straight away but after about a week she got the idea. She now farts in the garage then goes outside without having to be told. Pretty smart for an old girl, eh?

Great Quotes

"Listen to the Stage Manager and get onstage when they tell you to. No one has the time for your rock star bullshit. None of the techs backstage care if you're David Bowie or the milkman.

When you act like a jerk, they are completely unimpressed with the infantile display that you might think comes with your dubious status.

They were there hours before you building the stage, and they will be there hours after you leave tearing it down.

They should get your pay and you should get theirs."

Henry Rollins.

I'm a Grandpa!

It's finally happened folks. My oldest Daughter has given birth to a beautiful baby girl called Lily.
Mum and bubs are tired but fine after a long labour.

Mum, Dad & Lily.

Nanny & Lily

I may consume a sparkling, refreshing, ale or two in the next day or so!

Random Thoughts

"War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded
state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is
much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing
which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature
and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of
better men than himself."

John Staurt Mill, On Liberty
