inner city

Perth’s inner city is in the middle of a revamp .. the main train station is nearing an end and is so much easier to use.. the riverside project is under way ; this will create a bay with a shopping, café type precinct on the river’s edge. with all this going on the use of art to cover the unsightly is more common , my only critique is more should be done….

52 years ago

i was born 52 years ago today . born in a time when chubby checker was doing the twist, ben-hur was number one at the box office, percy faith was topping the charts with the theme from “a summer place” and we were heading into space (some of us were already there , LSD was still legal)……..

paris hilton

team paris

over the years paris hilton has had a bad time with the press .. she is hounded at every turn when she has done something that they think is wrong … in reality she has done nothing that most of haven’t done ourselves , except for the sex video ( i ,myself haven’t ruled that out yet ) .. in the news the other day it was reported that her and one of her friends will step into the boxing ring for charity , but as always not much was reported .. why is nothing said , the  press are not interested in positive news.. anything positive ends up as the last , two-minute , news item after the weather.. how much of our social problems are caused by the media and the way it reports events.. with freedom of the press also comes responsibly .. its time to report all news without sensationalism as its core.  here is another project that paris has started and only got the two-minute after the weather slot… team paris motorsports

emissions trading act

the emissions trading act comes into force today..  i’m am stunned to hear the Labour Party pouring scorn on it saying that it is talking money from us and will negate our tax cuts… how short is their memory? … it’s not that long ago that they , the Labour Party , used celebrities such as kisha castel-hughes and lucy lawless to promote their scheme that would take more money from our household budgets without the benefits of tax cuts.. what pissed me off at the time was these celebrities could afford the estimated $40 a week ! .. to rub salt into the wound at the time of the promotion castel-hughes flew over to france to an opening of a film she had acted in.. if she was that concerned she would not have flown half way around the would to see a film she had already seen…. everyone in power is dodging the important issue , where is the money that is being collected going ? no one seems to be telling us this..
