They spoke of times they played golf, travelled with him to various par...

  • Sad Passing of Jeff Patterson - A True Legend

    Sad Passing of Jeff Patterson - A True Legend

    It is with a heavy heart I pass on the sad news of Jeff Patterson's passing.

    Jeff was a lovable larrikin who played Aussie Rules for Richmond, Fitzroy and South Melbourne. Even though he didn't play a lot of games, he will be well remember for the ones he did play.
    Jeff also tried his hand at boxing, but with most things Jeff got involved in there was always some controversy. You can read his exploits in his book"What A Life" which is available in the Toorak Times

    Iran, Peacemakers?

    It IS the End of the We Knew It!

    Everything that humanity had thought about the way physics worked has been thrown out the window illuminating the universe's natural laws which until now we have totally misunderstood.

    Iranian nuclear physicist M.T. Keshe makes it reasonably clear that the world now has an understanding about the Laws of Nature that will allow us to clear ourselves from the shackles of carbon based fuels. It is now no wonder that the US gove...

    The Stars Remember

    Now THAT'S Cool!

    I got a call from one of my dearest friends, Les Graham, lead guitarist from the iconic Aboriginal Rock/Reggae band No Fixed Address the other night. Les Graham's amazingly haunting guitar sound from No Fixed Address has underwritten the 'sound' of Indigenous rock guitarists ever since and Les was the leader of that band for all the years they were together. Les was the linch pin between the act and management and was always about the business of getting the real st...

    New Wave Political Stream - Far Middle or Bust!


    William of Orange landing at Torbay

    My bad...the current rank and file Independent politicians input and activity amounts to a Furphy. Past party inconsolables or aperatchiks living their own little fiefdoms, pretending to be our "conscience".

    I still reckon that Independent politicians are the way to go, the best Government Victoria has ever had was when Bracksy hit the boards with some seriously involved Independent individuals, like Craig Ingram and Roger Savage that were the balance of power in Victoria.

    I have presented many tomes about the representation of the unwashed, us, by the Indies but we seriously need to seek locally based individuals that will represent us as Independent members I see the my previous rants purporting the idea of Indies as invalid.

    MelbourneEast Arts Festival

    Robert Lloyd has served the Australian and International Arts/Music world since 1986. Beginning in Adelaide he has travelled the world performing and composing his unique music and songs.

    I have a couple of Robertís albums but have seen little of him live so it was wonderful to be invited to see his performance at Holy Trinity Church in East Melbourne, a show that is part of the MelbourneEast Arts Festival.

  • Democracy and the financial markets
    by Mick Pacholli

    Pic - Wikipedia

    President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar Grimsson identifies that it is a sane choice by nations to protect their democracies by simply allowing the banks to crash and default the payment of loans due to the IMF and simply rebuild their countries from the ground up.

    After suffering IMF debts that were 10 times their national GDP, when the GFC hit, unlike Australia, Iceland's banks went crashing down in tune with the EU.

  • Crash the system - Iceland's secret to success
    by Mick Pacholli

    To take this idea of Crowd Sourced Democracy and apply it to Australia isn't as far fetched as we may think.

    We all identify as Australians, whether from the far east, west, north or south, and every bit in the middle of this country. Our geological wealth is being sucked out of the country with relatively poor returns to the national coffers and our economy is tortured by global financial and economic organisations that would
