Project A.L.S.

You may be aware of it, you may not – there has been one of those modern fad things going on for a while called the Ice Bucket Challenge.  I found two videos today on  that for me, sum up the hype completely. The first, requires your patience, or at least don’t start pulling your teeth out as soon as you feel the need. Both ARE work safe but you will need sound.

The second, is a much more considered approach, and if I am completely honest, a very clever posting by those southern hemisphere puppies – I like it

In a world where logging your protest at the worlds worst humanitarian outrages requires nothing more than clicking a ‘like’ button on Facebook, both of these posts hit a nerve.  I especially like the comment about Instagram.

At the other end of the spectrum, I found video Nº 3 below – again, its work safe but you have to wonder about the complete wanker in the car not giving the guy a dollar but saving his life by putting him on – have a good one


There, rant over.  As you know, I am currently in the land of the free, and the home of the brave.  Only half of that statement is true.  This morning we took the paddle boards out for a splash.  At the beach we were told that you must have a life jacket on if you want to go out beyond the swimming buoys (that’s about 50m offshore to you and me). If you don’t wear one, you will get a ticket !!!!   It does strike me every time I am in the States that the poor fellas on this side of the water don’t really have the freedom that their national anthem might suggest they do – but they do have the right to bear arms though – even if that means mowing down a couple of classes of school kids with an automatic assault rifle – ah, The Home of the Brave !!!!

One thing I will say about the Yanks though – they are a tough breed – it is fookin hot here and I really can’t understand how they tolerate it all day long.


God Bless America !!  (that is a movie you should rent without delay)
