Rural Fire Service

Last Sat I went along to a fundraiser for the Wentworth Falls branch of the NSW Rural Fire Service.. It was organised by Chami's mother and a few others and had a whole bunch of bands, dancers and lots of yummy food.

Chami and three of her friends had been roped into doing a dance for the night, and even tho they only had 2 weeks to practice really put in a great performance. Of course they almost caught hypothermia afterwards coz it was so frikken cold, but that's just a minor inconveniance. They were even called back for an encore!

I've been told that they raised over $2000 for the RFS so it's all good. Maybe the next one can be held somewhere a bit warmer tho! We were thinking of starting a bonfire, but for some reason the firefighters weren't keen on that idea!

Secret Cabal

Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) has blogged about a topic near and dear to my heart. Though of course the way he put it is a lot funnier than I ever could. His hypothesis is that the world is actually being run by a secret cabal of corporate puppet masters who pull the strings of the world governments. Obviously something as important as running the world can't be left to idiotic citizens of "democracies" or the even worse idiot politicians elected by the previously mentioned idiots.

... my survival depends on hordes of clueless goobers electing competent leaders. That's about as likely as a dog pissing the Mona Lisa into a snow bank. - Scott Adams
