For Airforcewife


On 31 October 1917, as part of the Sinai and Palestine campaign during World War I, the Australian 4th Light Horse Brigade, under Brigadier General William Grant, charged more than four miles at the Turkish trenches, overran them and captured the wells at Beersheba. This is often reported as the last successful cavalry charge in history.
So that's my Great-Grandfather's contribution to Israeli history. And I'm proud of it, because he was just an Aussie farmer who went out to do what he saw was the right thing! And nobody ever dared called him a child - especaially when he lived to almost 98!

David, that's terribly sweet of you.

I'll bet you're a Teddy Roosevelt fan, too.

There comes a time in every person's life (often more than once) when you have to suck up what hurts and do what is right. Doing what is right is often a far harder, longer, more intense road. We may not live to see what we work for accomplished, but we do it for our children and for the rest of humanity.

In the words of Dr. MLK, Jr. "I just want to do God's will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I've looked over, and I've seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land."

and

"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."

For me being able to sexually satisfy a woman had always been a hit or miss
affair. One night I decided to try something different. My lover's reaction was
out of this world. After she settled back down to earth the first thing she told
me was that she just had the best orgasm of her life!
ultimate orgasm

Hi, just came across your blog. I enjoyed it ...most informative.

I've been reviewing other blogs and I book marking the standouts.

Well, needless to say, I have bookmarked your blog.

I also write a blawg. Actually, it's more of a collection of Internet
Tech tips/observations to inform legal (actually most regular sites as well) web site owners how to achieve improved search engine standings while avoiding the many Internet scams.

My blawg legal
advice library
site. is still very much a work in progress.
My legal directorySan Francisco lawyers - attorneys Directory site is the newer of our 15 legal directory sites that cover California, Texas and Las Vegas.

Please visit and check them out if you have the time

MORE IMPORTANTLY . . .I have been watching the news about Hurricane Katrina as I am sure you have been too. My heart goes out to these people and I pray they get the assitance they need as fast as humanly possible.

What makes me sick are the emails I have been receiving over the past few days from people "claiming" to help. Maybe they are sincere maybe not. I don't know.

Anonymous #2, I'm an Aussie lawyer, and no doubt I'll find your blog interesting and informative. I'be often thought of heading off to the US (legally, of course) but I will make sure I check out both your sites when I have time to sit down and think about them!

As to Mr "ultimate orgasm" anonymous guy (comment number 2), I am posting from a web cafe, so I think I'll give his link a miss!

Actually anonymous, one thing we do well here is online legal resources - such as Austlii (linked to in my "Resoources" section. The SA Courts Administration Authority - www.courts.sa.gov.au - is pretty good too - from online judgments to advice to the untrained who think we do the Judge Judy thing here! Just in case you're interested!
