Shipboard Observations: Thursday July 4th: American Independence Day Joy oh joy! - it's American Independence Day and don't we know it! Red, white and blue balloons, red, white and blue jellies and a giant U.S. flag cake plus many, many loud, painful Americans - what bliss! I have been very tempted to break into a few choruses of "Waltzing Matilda"! Spotted this afternoon, in the Lido buffet restaurant, the female equivalent of Mr. Creosote from the Monty Python movie, "the Meaning of Life". Description: American female; aged about 25, estimated weight - about 2 tonnes. (the ship was actually listing to the side that she was sitting); she was eating simultaneously from 3 different plates. I actually saw them loading extra supplies on board the ship whist in Venice - now I know why. At the end of her feast, after eating non-stop for 3 hours, she called for a bucket but unfortunately she had that one last grape and then exploded. I'm still washing "it" off me 2 hours later.
Slim Dusty's 1957 hit "A Pub with No Beer" was the biggest-selling record by an Australian up to that time; it was also the first Australian single to go gold, and the first and only 78 rpm record to be awarded a gold disc. Slim collected collected more gold and platinum albums than any other Australian artist and he was the first singer in the world to have his voice beamed to earth from space when American astronauts played Slim Dusty's recording of Waltzing Matilda from the space shuttle 'Columbia' as it passed over Australia back in 1983. There's more about Slim on our website. A true Aussie Legend.

I went to a funeral today (nobody I knew) and got talking to one of the funeral directors, asking what he had seen that was funny. He told me that he went to a funeral a couple of years ago where the organist was an old lady who was renowned for liking a tipple or two. The people were all in the church mourning the poor departed, and they stood up to sing The Lord is my shepherd. They had sang the first four verses when the lady at the organ turned the page on her music book. The Vicar noticed and whispered loudly to her that they hadn't finished that particular hymn yet and to turn the page back. But she didn't and cracked on with the music she had in front of her. So the congregation are trying to sing the last verse of The Lord is my shepherd while the old lady was banging out Waltzing Matilda!! I haven't laughed like that in ages!! :-) Anybody heard of anything similar that raised a chuckle?
Got into Berlin last night and ate with the group at a local place complete with music, dancing and too much beer. The guy managed to get Laurence up to lead our group in Waltzing Matilda! Too funny. Today saw lots of war type memorabilia.

I met Matilda this evening. She is beautiful and elegant and resides at the Algonquin hotel. She is, according to many New York City guidebooks, the most famous cat in NY. Many guests stay there just for her. And she let me, a mere mortal, pet her - and she even purred.

A Blonde was sent on her way to Heaven. Upon arrival, a concerned St Peter met her at the Pearly Gates. 'I'm sorry, 'St Peter said; 'but Heaven is suffering from an overload of goodly souls and we have been forced to put up an Entrance Exam for new arrivals to ease the burden of Heavenly Arrivals.' 'That's cool' said the blonde, 'What does the Entrance Exam consist of?' 'Just three questions' said St Peter. 'Which are?' asked the blonde. 'The first,' said St Peter, 'is, which two days of the week start with the letter 'T' 'The second is 'How many seconds are there in a year?' 'The third is 'What was the name of the swag-man in Waltzing Matilda?' 'Now,' said St Peter, 'Go away and think about those questions and when I call upon you, I shall expect you to have those answers for me.' So the blonde went away and gave those three questions some considerable thought. (I expect you are doing the same) The following morning, St Peter called upon the blonde and asked if she had considered the questions, to which ...

Part two of reciting poetry at my library. On Friday I read one of my favorite poems Warning by Jenny Joseph. Afterwards the nice librarian asked if I am familiar with Betty Collins's ripost to that poem. I have found it now though dont get it why its called a ripost if she wrote it about 40 years later than the Warning was published. I think I analyse it too much! Lol. I do like the ripost as well. Both copied and pasted below, Enjoy! Warning When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sau ...

Waltzing Matilda!!
(Seriously, I couldn't be bothered changing the channel, and after a little while, I didn't want to) They stopped Rage, at 9 o'clock this morning, to telecast the Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony from Canberra. On the shore of Lake Burley Griffin the Federation Guard, a conglomerate of Navy, Army and Airforce personnel, marched out stiffly and efficiently to the tune of Waltzing Matilda, and came to halt behind a modest dais. The Governor-General, Quentin Bryce, did a little tour around the ranks of the guard, casually chatting with her escort, as did the Prime Minister, who took a moment to quietly thank them for the service they were doing for their country. That was as much pomp and formality there was to be on this day. As the breeze fluttered past the huge flag atop the distant Parliament house, on this side of Lake Burley Griffin, four more flags were unfurled. The announcer, Adam Spencer, made mention of the "Canadian Flagpole," which piqued my curiosity. He then explained that ...

To my family in Australia, Happy Australia Day. To the Americans FB friends, want to tell you about the year I was in Australia for Australia Day. In the evening, my sister Helen and her husband Jeff Brazier took me to Jeff's brothers home. It overlooked the Swan river which runs through Perth. There were a couple hundred thousand people at the river and up in Kings park overlooking the river, to see the fireworks show. The show was all set to music which played on the local radio during the show. At different times during the evening the announcer would tell eveyone on one bank or the other or in the park to flash lights. everyone brought flashlights and would flash at everyone else. And at the finale of the show, ALL those people sang Waltzing Matilda together. All those people singing together, because they were Australian. It was wonderful and awe inspiring. Unity. We could learn something from them.
And I also leave you with Mr. Rolf Harris doing Waltzing Matilda.

To my friends and fans. After listening to the version of Waltzing Matilda by Rod Stewart, I to was inspired to do my own version of the song, unbeknown to me at the time of recording it that is isnt anything like the true Australian anthem.
And the band played waltzing Matilda, as I miss my nan and grandad
When I was a young man I carried my pack And I lived the free life of a rover From the Murrays green basin to the dusty outback I waltzed my Matilda all over Then in nineteen fifteen my country said Son It's time to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be done So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun And they sent me away to the war And the band played Waltzing Matilda As we sailed away from the quay And amidst all the tears and the shouts and the cheers We sailed off to Gallipoli
I once had "and the band played Waltzing Matilda" on repeat for a day and a half. What a truly magical time that was.

Just arrived at Mom's house with a couple of pies she asked me to bring. I also brought some W.F.S.F. (Waiting for sister food). She was told to be here at 2 PM, and she's on time about as often as I get laid. Since my mother REFUSES to let any of us eat until ol' Waltzing Matilda gets here, I brought along a couple of roast beef sandwiches, a half dozen deviled eggs, and a half dozen chicken wings to nibble on while I'm waiting for Her Highness.

Today I am thankful and proud of my Australian heritage. I am so grateful I was able to go to Australia when I was young and meet all of my relatives. Papa Albie and I were so much alike we kept in touch through letters until the day he died. Nana was able to spend a whole summer with us just before she died. I am so fortunate and that my mother taught me the Australian ways, my heritage and the history. The kookaburra and the kangaroo are every bit a part of me as are our elk and eagle. Thank you mother for keeping my heritage alive. One day we'll go "Waltzing Matilda" again!
Finally got Dave Evans' Official Video of 'Waltzing Matilda' !! Waltzing Matilda is Australia's unofficial National Anthem and this is Dave's rockin' 80's version. Dave also plays the role of the wandering swagman in the film clip (hobo or tramp) after growing a few days growth of beard. This song was released as a sin...gle from the Dave Evans and Thunder Down Under album and the film clip was played on MTV.

For Daddy with Love I used to hide his house shoes in the fridge, Back when I was just a little tot, “Trying to give your daddy cold feet?” He asked and then he laughed a lot. He raked the pine straw into piles When it was way down in the fall, And then we'd ride the wheelbarrow When he the straw away would haul. He sang his songs and made us laugh, Taught me how to ride bicycle And how to change the tire too, And then he'd buy us a pop sickle. Once he bought us a metal see-saw* To go up and down and 'round and 'round, We pretended it was a helicopter, Whirly-bird, our joy did so abound! How he loved baseball and other games! We raised dogs and fish and rabbits, Building cages and playing ball, Tom Walkers too, his name for stilts. We played Chess and Chinese Checkers, When I least expected he'd take my rook. Mouse Trap and Monopoly too, And we shared many a good book. He often quoted Kipling's “If” poem And taught me the trick to multiplying nines. We read encyclopedias and science news, And he g ...

OMG!!! I've been a little distracted the past week. Just realized Twinky is really dead. The Mayans were right. it really is the end of the world. Zombie apocolypse to follow. Another reason I know it's the end of the world. The song waltzing matilda has been stuck in my head all day. Just caught myself singing it outLOUD as I walked past a group of shoppers.
This amazing song wich was written by Eric Bogle and played by many. But this is my personel favourite because Drew's voice is just perfect for it The Song t...

26th January - No other flag will ever fly over this land The Flag of Australia If you're interested, Slim Dusty is singing "Waltzing Matilda" on this tribute, so have your speakers on. If this doesn't give you chills, you should pack up and move on to another country. I am the flag of Australia My name is "Southern Cross" I fly atop tallest buildings. I stand watch in Australia's halls of justice. I fly majestically over institutions of learning. I stand guard with power in the world. Look up and see me. I stand for peace, honour, truth and justice. I stand for freedom. I am confident. I am arrogant. I am proud. When I am flown with my fellow banners, My head is a little higher, My colours a little truer. I bow to no one! I am recognized all over the world. I am worshipped - I am saluted. I am loved - I am revered. I am respected - and I am feared. I have fought in every war for 200 years. I was there at Gallipoli, the trenches of Turkey, World War 2, Korea and Vietnam know me. I'm presently in the ...

Just watched Jon English perform Waltzing Matilda at the Sydney Opera House
G'day, thought you where the only ones having rain?? Landed in Melbourne heavy rain off and on. Good job I packed a mac!! Had a great time at a bush barbeque, evening of weds, spotted lots of kangaroos, and wild birds, flocks of budgerigars, learnt how to throw a boomerang, did you know there are Left and Right handed boomerangs? I wouldnt have killed anything with my throw but it was fun , sat and watched the stars(well tried to but it was quite cloudy) and then driven back to the hotel singing Waltzing Matilda!!! loads of verses. Yesterday went to Ularu in the evening after a long and tiring coach trip via a Camel farm, they've got wild camels here and like the kangaroos they wander into the road, its very incongruous to see. Sunset at Ayres Rock was spectacular just a show of colours and absolutely stunning to see the rock itself, amazingly there where hundreds of people there and some where having champagne and nibbles picnic tables set up around the veiwing area. Sunrise at Ayres Rock was not as spec ...
