FOUR THOUGHTS

I am not sure who is the biggest advertiser; Clive Palmer or Harvey Norman.  Both are key contributors to adding to the pages of newspaper print circulating in Australia.

When you take into account the enduring entitlements of all past G-G’s, state governors, territory administrators, politicans from prime ministers to backbenchers and add ongoing entitlements for retired judges and high level officials, the total cost of these benefits must be close to 10% of Australia’s annual GDP.

Some teachers fail and so do some students. Sometimes student failure has happened because their parents have failed them. Failure is by incident and circumstance and is not exclusionary.

In Australia, we have a glut of unwanted, unloved, recalcitrant and law breaking children, many as young as 9 and 10 years of age. The situation is so bad – and getting worse, especially in the Northern Territory.

URBAN FARMER

I have been an urban farmer now for the past six years. Pawpaws of the main plant I grow. I grow plants from seed and give them away. I also grow pawpaws to ripen and pluck the fruit. The fruit also I give away. Pawpaws at the main plant that I grow. Yes I am an urban farmer.I have been an urban farmer now for the past six years. Pawpaws of the main plant I grow.

Do your best

Try hard each and every day and all you do, to do your best. This may mean that sometimes you have two take hard and unpalatable decisions. If so, if you want to do your best, that’s the way it has to be. Avoiding those hard decisions might seem a good escape at the time but the easy way out can rebound with negative consequences. And capitulation will play on your mind.

Consider Blogging

Might I suggest to People that sharing of thoughts is important and the recording of those thoughts is of equal importance.

Blogging is definitely a way of achieving both aims. If you haven’t considered blogging, I’d suggest it might be worthwhile consideration for you.

The Downside of Covid

Covid has gone on for so long. We are now into our third year of living with the virus. Some are very frightened, some are very complacent, and some are happy to live with stories about how Covid is not really an issue. However people think, this virus is very long-term and its impact upon the world among the greatest of all disease impacts.

POINTS TO PONDER

Thank you to Town and Country Plumbing for the great job tradespersons always do with work undertaken. The company is ‘gold standard’ in terms of the quality of completed work. Well done to everyone connected with this iconic Territory company.

We are indeed blessed to have a city council dedicated to aquatic discipline. Many people will welcome the major improvements to Casuarina pool. The facility when upgraded to international status will be a huge drawcard for committed swimmers and tourists alike.

Thoughts

Laughter is a tranquilliser with no side effects, said Arnold Glasgow.

The road to the house of a friend is never long.

Appreciate the efforts of your associates and value synergy, the collective energy of those working together.

POINTS TO PONDER

Spitting is spitting. It is hard to imagine what methods (short of spit hoods) could be used to prevent those with spitting propensity from spitting. It is NOT acceptable for police officers and corrections staff to have to evade saliva being forcibly ejected from the mouths of spitters and that is regardless of the offenders’ age.

It is interesting that the Barunga community

(NT News 24/2) is being granted a liquor licence. Decades ago when communities were declared ‘dry’, many Indigenous people began moving to towns and cities so they could continue drinking. A return to ‘wet’ communities with purchasing limits, might reduce the issues of homelessness and itinerancy confronting those moving from their communities in order to access alcohol.
