Royal Wedding Countdown

Like the good loon I have been steering myself clear of writing about the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and the TV actress. BUT, in light of her daddy having the paparazzi follow him around Mexico to take the worst staged shots I have ever seen, I can’t help myself any longer. Are you really sure Harry?REALLY?  You have a few days to make a run for it. I’m not sure you really want to add this branch to your family tree. Daddy has now bailed, brother is persona non grata, her ex-besties haven’t got a nice word, her mum is hiding in the shadows and well, it all seems like a mess. To top it all off, the relis who haven’t been invited have hopped over the Atlantic to be guest commentators on various tv networks. Move over Geordie Shore, the Markles are in town.

What Goes Up

Oh for the love of all things flat. A 61-year-old man built himself a steam-powered rocket so he could propel himself into the air to prove the Earth is flat. I know, I am still shaking my head too. Looking like Wile E. Coyote, mad Mike launched himself at about 350mph into the air to 1,875 feet before landing really, really hard in the Mojave Desert. Fortunately, he did have a parachute and a backup chute so despite the thud landing he only suffered minor injuries. Mike said ‘My story really is incredible,’ ‘It’s got a bunch of storylines – the garage-built thing. I’m an older guy. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, plus the Flat Earth. The problem is it brings out all the nuts also, people questioning everything. It’s the downside of all this.’

Blahahahah it brings out all the nut? Really?

PSST Mike still believes the world is flat.

Only in Australia

When you have been terrorised by a deadly Eastern brown snake for 6 months but can’t find his hide out, what do you do? Well in Oz you get yourself a jackhammer and you jackhammer the crap out of the surrounding paths looking for its bunker…or alterantively just pack up and leave. The deadly repitilewas eventually found after the family crushed their concrete slabs around the house. Once found a  snake catcher released the angry beast in nearby bushes. OK loons, you know what that means! Sleep with one eye open family, that snake is going to be right back and more pissed than ever. Good luck with that.

Noah’s Lark

Grab your tin foil hats and sit down while I tell you about the future. Apparently a time traveller has come back to warn us. Introducing Noah, who believes he is from 2030. In fact he has taken a lie dectector test to prove he is telling the truth. Insert an eye roll anywhere you like.  He said he snuck back in time to warn us. OK, 12 years into the future isn’t a biggie but each to their own. Here’s the low down on what the future holds. Trump will win a second term, Google Glass robots will run the place and we will get to Mars by 2028. Still no cure for cancer!

PSST Here’s the video of him if you are interested….

Has The Grave of The Beaumont Children Been Found?

One of Australia’s most puzzling and infamous unsolved crimes may soon be solved. This horrendous crime changed Australia’s  lifestyle forever.

Fifty two years ago the children of Nancy and Jim Beaumont  aged 4, 7 and 9 (two girls and a boy) caught a bus to the beach at Glenelg in South Australia. The trip took less than 5 minutes. In those days it wasn’t uncommon, and the eldest child Jane was considered extremely responsible. The kids were expected to spend a few hours by the water before returning home at 2pm. Alarm bells began ringing for the parents as night fell and they hadn’t returned.

Eye witnesses said they saw the three kids playing with a blond man in his 30s. A shopkeeper, who knew the children quite well,  told police they came into the shop at 12.15 and bought 2 pasties and a pie. She thought it strange because they had never bought a pie before. Their parents confirmed that they had given them coins for their outing but the shopkeeper insisted they paid with a £ 1 note.

The last sighting of the children was around 3pm by a postie who said he saw them walking hand in hand along the road, in good humour.

As news broke of the disappearance, Australia became increasing concerned. It would continue to shock the nation to the core. Within a blink of an eye the Beaumonts had lost their three children.

Psychics and a hoax letter gave false hope to Jim and Nancy. In the end  after decades hoping for their children’s return they moved away and separated. They are still alive and in their 90s but no longer want to be in the public spotlight.

In later developments a North Plymouth factory became the focus of a continuing investigation. A small section was excavated but nothing was found.  A book published alleged a man named Harry Phipps had killed the three children and buried them at the factory. A book written by his son claimed he had buried them in the sand pit at the factory.

Today it was announced a new search will resume on the factory grounds . Here is hoping there will be closure for the family.

It’s The Season

If you happen to be one of Estonia’s worst drivers you would have received a nice surprise in the mail for Christmas. The Estonian police sent 700 Christmas cards to their worst drivers. The card, which has no greetings,  features images of car crashes and the annual stats for road accidents. Fa LaLaLaLa La. The so called “Black” Christmas cards have helped slash the road toll since they were first introduced in 2011.

Evidently dressing up as Borat in the infamous green mankini in Kazakhstan is considered minor hooliganism (love that word!). Just ask the 6 Czech tourists who were detained and fined.  Still too soon. Seems the Kazakhs are still really pissed at that movie for making them out to be backward peasants.
