CHACEWATER: "Watt was the point of getting all steamed up?" PL Inkletter asks, "But he did blow his horn to a double beat, compounding matters a lot."

Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'
05th July 2010

Monday: My over-one-week-long cold has taken a turn for the worse today, and so I've been feeling rotten. But not so rotten that I didn't think of my sister Helena turning a mere 58 today.

Nevertheless, Missus Inkletter and I did an afternoon shop sweeping like a couple of middle-aged crazies on cocoa through Malaga, Beechboro, Morley, and, retracing back to Beechboro and Malaga. And it was a fruitful shop, op shop, and a fashion and appliance reconnaissance, the latter being for a joint birthday present for The Babies Ink&Peggletter on behalf of Umple Dais and The Dear Leader.

We spent the cold evening slumped in front of Aunty, some of it with Cadbury C.K. Inkletter on my lap, and my word how excellently presented were all the anchors tonight, from Kerry O'Brien to the usually fiercely casual Jonathan Holmes, to Tony Jones, and finishing with Leigh Sales and Ticky Fullerton.

Kerry O'Brien's tie was quite dazzling, with its red background overlaid with pairs of white stripes.

Jonathan Holmes looked great, and should ALWAYS don a tie for his program.

Tony Jones proved yet again that white shirts are not necessary for professional presentation.

Leigh Sales looked an image of freshness in chiffon.

Ticky Fullerton glowed with her shorter locks and fiery jacket.

Four Corners, twixt Australian Story and Media Watch, was wrenching for me to watch, seeing the struggle our troops are enmeshed in in Afghanistan, and I hope to see the concluding program next week. There isn't much worse than seeing our younger citizens torn to shreds for hopeless causes.

It seems that some of our lads are being moved away from the coconut shy position. Although not yet.
Winning hearts and minds? Is that possible when murderers seek to rule by terror alone?
Maybe the US military can achieve more in that particular area with their huge fire power equipment.
A sad state of affairs.
But better for our lads to be where they can achieve an aim. At least, in part.

Nice to see a line up of celebrities. Funny, you lot down under look pretty much like us. Mm.
Now why do men the world over (well, most of them) choose to wear a tie? Why not a cravat? A plain neckband? A neck belt? A ruff? Or have a collar, or neckline that does not need anything to give neatness at the neck. I hate to see shirts flopping open untidily but designers of men's clothes are lacking in imagination.

Anonymous: Thank you for your comment. As I've written here often, I despair of a successful outcome in Afghanistan from the Allies' point of view. I dearly wish and hope to be wrong, and find that an outcome soon transpires that is good for both the folk of goodwill, reason, and moderation in Afghanistan and the same ilk within we the Allied nations.

To have all the sacrifices of death, injuries, and destruction, and the staggering sums of money expended, actually deliver some lasting good for all of us after all.

Yet when I hear the main players' leaders address the issues, I am not filled with confidence at all. Naivety reigns, as well as low grade thinking, not to mention corruption on 'both' sides.

Gladys: I applaud your sharp observation of the similarity of the antipodean human being to the northern species. There is even conjecture that they could successfully mate.

And isn't the male of the human species in the West rather limited, don't you agree, in the degree of professional level adornment? Suits that are dark and conservative, shirts that are generally white, leaving only the tie for the main self expression possibilities. And the area of the shirt and tie field is so confined! Women can dispense with jackets, or don jackets with wide openings, giving a décolletage arena of generous proportions in which to display jewellery, underbodices, blouses, cleavage, you name it.
