There are quite a few pictures from August that I published already towards the end of August.

I found now a few more pictures from that month. Here they are:

DSCN5607 Some of our discarded stuff ready for collection

We try to sort out some DVDs. We have too many and they take up too much room. So it is best to get rid of some . . . However, for instance ‘As it is in HEAVEN is such a great movie I really would like to watch it again!

This is such a great spot in the morning winter sun!

Why Ukraine Referendum is Big Deal

The Most Revolutionary Act

Russia’s newest ICBM Sarmat equipped with maneuvering warheads

Indian Punchline

The referendum on September 23-27 in the Donbass and southern Kherson and Zaporozhye regions of Ukraine on their accession to Russian Federation is, prima facie, an exercise of the right of self-determination by the native population who reject the western-backed regime change in Kiev in 2014 and the ascendancy of extreme nationalist forces with neo-Nazi leanings in the power structure.

But it has other dimensions, too. In all probability, the referendum will overwhelmingly opt for accession to Russian Federation. In Donbass, it is a straightforward question: “Do you support the entry of the DPR into the Russian Federation as a subject of the Russian Federation?” For Kherson and the Zaporozhye Cossacks, the referendum ascertains three sequential decisions: secession of these territories from Ukraine; formation of an independent state; and its entry into the Russian Federation as a subject.

In 2014…

Bowral in December 2012

DSCN5588

Peter took this picture on the 21st December 2012, our Wedding Anniversary. The Corbett Gardens are in Bowral. This day in 2012 was the last time we went to see the Gardens. Over the years we did go a few times to have a look at the tulips there in spring time during the tulip festival. This year we missed out again on seeing the tulips there.

Two years ago in December we quite liked to walk through Corbett Gardens on a summer day. There were no tulips there, but the gardens looked lovely none the less.

    On the 21st of December 2012 we had our 56th wedding anniversary. On that day we went up to the highlands for a visit to Bowral. As I remember it, Peter and I had an excellent time up in Bowral on the day of our anniversary . Looking at these old photos brings back memories. So here they are:

    The illustrious career of Rex (Bucket) Jackson.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7I8QiBsnhSk

    With the latest finger pointing at Obeid and his antics in front of Icac I wonder if some of you still remember Rex Jackson. There is a world of difference between the two!

    Rex (bucket) Jackson was really the epitome of a charming effervescent man. He was also minister for Youth and Community services, of Corrective services and a little later minister for Transport in the NSW Labor Government during the mid seventies and early eighties after which he suffered his spectacular fall from grace.

    His love of dogs is what is supposed to have led him to his downfall. He was a regular fixture at Dapto dogs and Wentworth…

    A handwritten note, a crown and a wreath: items on Queen’s coffin and what they signify

    items on Queen’s coffin and what they signify

    ANTHONY HAYBLE'S NEW BLOG SITE FOR MOST CURRENT NEWS & CELEBRITY NEWS, GOSIPS AND EVENTS

    1. Handwritten note

    Nestled among the flowers of the Queen’s funeral wreath was a handwritten card by her son King Charles III, which read: “In loving and devoted memory, Charles R.”

    2. Flowers

    At King Charles’s request, the wreath on top of the Queen’s coffin contains flowers and foliage from the royal properties of Buckingham Palace and Clarence House, in London, and Highgrove House in Gloucestershire. Also at the King’s request, the wreath was sustainable, and affixed in a nest of English moss and oak branches.

    The wreath contains myrtle, the ancient symbol of a happy marriage, cut from a plant that was grown from a sprig of myrtle in the Queen’s wedding bouquet in 1947. It also contains rosemary as a symbol of remembrance and English oak, a national symbol of strength, in a nod to the Queen’s constancy and steadfast duty. Other foliage includes pelargoniums, garden roses, autumnal…

    A colorful Wreath

    The note was placed amid a colorful wreath for the late monarch that Buckingham Palace said contained, at Charles’s request, rosemary, English Oak and myrtle, which had been cut from a plant grown from myrtle used in Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet.

    There were also gold, pink, burgundy and white flowers cut from the gardens of royal residences.

    ” . . . myrtle, which had been cut from a plant grown from myrtle used in Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet.” – How wonderful is that!:

    Uta’s Diary

    I wrote all this eight years ago in August!

    AuntyUta

    We are close to the end of August 2014. A lot has happened the past few weeks. The best thing that happened was our family reunion at Sussex Inlet. It was only for a weekend, but it was a great success. I already published several blogs about this beautiful weekend.

    The weeks after, right up to today, we had much, much rain. There was hardly any sunshine. When the sun came out a bit, it felt rather warm. But the rest of the time we had to cope with rather cold temperatures. From 1st of September on we are supposed to have spring. I hope it is going to be much sunnier and warmer then. Yes, I am looking forward to September.

    It is only about three more weeks till my 80th birthday. This is really a milestone, isn’t it? Maybe it is about time for me to learn to…

    Ultra-processed Foods Linked to Heart Disease, Cancer, and Death

    I thought, I do mostly avoid processed food. But looking at the examples in this article, I must admit, I could make lots of improvements in my diet!

    The Most Revolutionary Act

    Written by Corrie Pelc on September 6, 2022 — Fact checked by Jill Seladi-Schulman, Ph.D.

    HICGI News Agency

    • Prior research has shown that poor diet may be associated with 1 in 5 deaths globally.
    • Recently, researchers at Tufts University found that a diet high in ultra-processed foods puts a person at greater risk for developing colorectal cancer.
    • Another team of Italian researchers suggests that people with the lowest-quality diet and highest levels of ultra-processed food consumption have a higher risk of both all-cause and cardiovascular death.

    The food we eat can play a much greater role in health and longevity than many people may realize. In fact, previous researchTrusted Source suggests that 1 in 5 deaths around the world could be prevented by improving diet.

    Now, two new studies recently published in the journalThe BMJexamine the effects of ultra-processed foods on certain health conditions.

    In one study,
