#1198098 My leg and the last 2 months

Posted by eveln on 29 November 2017 - 09:02 PM

20% mortality rate

this, with newly diagnosed diabetes, pushed that up to 60%


I am now up and getting about, can walk about 1km, but that is improving every day

need crutches to get up and down steps


I am alive, I have my leg

in 12 moths time I will have some great scars and a good story

So very glad . Sorry. I don't have more to say. Words fail me just now.

Thank-you so much Mr Howard for being the creator of the downfall of our political system :)



huh ? He's the fuckhead who blithely changed the law regarding the wording of a legal marriage, I don't think he's quite old enough to have helped with the S 44 of the constitution .

So, our ' castle ' has had it's lawn mowed it's insides vacuumed, mopped and dusted, Sitting here now it feels pretty bloody good. Granted the scotch may have helped there too.

It should just be a simple thing now. If ss couples want to marry they can. Getting married is a business today . Even in a religious  setting it is  a business, as money passes hands for the deed.

Employees don't have the right to deny a service that their employer legally provides, if the employee is not happy about that they need to change jobs. Employers do have a right to choose their legal business practices. << with that legality made, an employee is not breaking the law by conducting a religious ssm ceremony; but that employee may find himself out of a job if choosing to perform ss ceremony. << that is also a legal occurrence. that's life.

I'd imagine the doc. would want to know the health etc.of the female wanting to terminate and there'd be a need to understand the reason for it, possible complications.

I guess hereditary issues might make some want to specify the gender of the child, With that in mind then I'd be open to being gender specific.

So. Um. I find I'm in agreement with Cory.


He wants to stop abortion on gender grounds from being a thing on the Medicare. Frankly, I'm appalled the gender of the fetus is a reason for an abortion.

Posted by eveln on 14 November 2017 - 07:00 PM

...we may also want to look into the fact that people having a copper line home phone on POTS in rural areas are spitting chips that come fire season they may have no access to the outside world.

Yep. For us it's cyclones but same diff.

So Matt Canavan's Law dude is going on the offensive and calling the High Court proceedings " offensive " and " inappropriate ". LOL

I will draw attention to the fact he says something of what I said up the page  bit, ie the fact Aus. has always been a country of immigrants ... well actually I used the term " multi cultural " but, well same-o-same-o ... but then Bennett ( the law dude ) says ... "  said various changes to Italian law had led to the situation currently before the court," ... which I think is not quite so and a bit flakey to boot. I mean Canavan's there cos ' his mum signed him up for Italian citizenship without telling him  ' << always makes me smirk that does.
