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.

Snakes Alive

Feet up Aussies, seems the early hot weather means male snakes are coming out of hibernation and mating sooner than expected. It’s on. Snakes will be on the prowl for a missus. They will be angry little reptiles ready to rumble with any other male snake they come across in their pursuit of a female. Pet owners have been urged to be a lot more vigilant as some of Australia’s most deadliest snakes will take no prisoners in their once a year mating ritual.

Loon The Prepper

Sorry about the lack of posts yesterday, the Loon is digging a bunker. Yes, I have decided to become a prepper.  It is all Kim Jong Un’s fault. I have no faith in his missile capabilities. That is, I suspect its good luck rather than good management that his missiles haven’t kaboomed another country yet. So I am going it alone. Move over Tiny Houses, hello Tiny Kaboom Shelter.

Being a prepper isn’t easy. So many extension cords. So little in canned food cuisine. I have been watching the film  Martian over and over again for inspiration …basically to see if I can devise a way to re-purpose the kitty litter. Maybe grow potatoes?

I have also been spending up big on all the infomercials… got myself the Rocky Mountain Tumbler, Olde Brooklyn lantern, Eurobed, Air Dragon Pump and VIP Poo spray.

I’m pretty much all set for nuclear annihilation.
