Article: Sharon and Kelly Osbourne were thrown off a nudist beach on a Spanish vacation - because they wouldn't strip. The pair were stunned to be asked to leave the stretch of sand on the island of Mallorca. Kelly explains, "I went to Mallorca with my mum and we were on a beach and asked to move because we wouldn't go topless. It was my worst holiday." (wenn) The nerve, they should be on their hands and knees thanking them for not stripping. Therapy ain't cheap.

I was in a silly mood so I decided to make an ultra-crap cover version of "Mother Mother" by Tracy Botham. Have you ever wondered what that song would sound like if it was played badly on ukulele and "sung" by an Australian version of that asian American Idol Reject that sings "Push Up"? Then look no further. Truly an archetypal "how not to" for music fanatics. No I'm not fishing for compliments here - this is truly crap and quite deliberately so. I apologise in advance.

On my livejournal account I asked people to give me a line of dialogue or a sentence and I had to write a story around it. I wrote a series of short stories that range from being comical to serious to sappy (these last two genres being very un-me!). I might try the same thing here at JU later on. The link to my stories are here: Link below are the story titles and the sentences I was supplied: 12 Steps to Valhalla As the clattering sound of the shattering crash boomed its way through th...

Here's a few ultrasound pictures of my in utero nephew Griffin Farrelley. Texas and I have been joking that were going to set them (Isabella and Griffin) up. Of course if Isabella takes after her mother she may well be way out of Griffin's league! That's a bit presumptuous though, he might actually turn out to be a "hunk" who knows....good lord he might even have "inner beauty" what a scary thought - he'll make me look bad My sister had a couple of miscarriages before Griffin that didn't ge...

For a while I have been thinking of taking the Civil Unions issue (see previous articles) to the UN Commision for Human Rights. I have found 6 articles of the The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the Howard Government has contravened in the process of overturning the ACT Civil Union act (and also in passing his Marriage act that states that marriage is between a man and woman. My one problem is that I can't really make a complaint that is generalised on behalf of all ACT resident or...

Yes this thing again! I'm not usually the polictically active type except when something REALLY pisses me off. I don't go around trying to sell left wing papers, saying the word "facist" willy niily and I don't even wear a brightly coloured woolen beanies. But this issue has made me angry. I must stress this about fighting for YOUR vote to count NOT JUST homosexual rights. This about equal rights for all ACT residents, even if you are homophobic don't cut off your nose to spite your face, we...

I'm mainly writing this to alert all Australian to the disintergration of the democract right of people in the Northern Territory and the ACT and the potential threat to the democratic rights of all Australians. This needs action NOW because our government has gone power mad. If we act maybe we can get the response that was given to the Snowy Hydro sale. People power does work. This article starts with the story of a law that was overturned undemocratically in the ACT. I should point out that...

Well here are the photos I've promise. For those of you trying to contact me on my mobile: I lost my mobile phone in Hawaii but it looks like it is being posted back to me by the hotel I lost it at so I might get it back sometime next week. All about the Jacksons and Hamiltons. Me with my first American money at home before the trip. US money reminds me of monopoly money. In Australia our notes are made out of plastic and US money seems somewhat primative. My first photo of Haw...

It was me; I am the one armed man. A very lucky one armed man I am too. Not only because I happen to have two arms but because I (and my parents) got to meet, in person, the hottest, most intelligent, eloquent, humourous and well loved (by anyone worth a damn) JU blogger. This is only the second time I've meet someone from the internet and I've been lucky both times. As you well know when you meet someone from the internet there is always a chance they are: A) A psychopathic sexually de...
