ANZAC Day

Australia & New Zealand flags

It is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand, which is similar to the American Veterans Day, in that it began as a remembrance of World War I, and has become more generalized over the years.

“Anzac Day commemorates the involvement of Australian and New Zealand troops in a World War I campaign on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey.”

The Gallipoli Campaign began as a Winston Churchill [then First Lord of the Admiralty] plan that spun out of control and got a lot of people killed on both sides with nothing much changing, but then, that was quite common in World War I.

Peter Weir made a movie, Gallipoli, which, if nothing else, proves that Sergeant Alvin York, and T.E. Lawrence weren’t the only people who fought in World War I.

[Note: The date is April 25 which is April 24 in the US because of the time zone difference.]

Yes. Another event that is given lip service as an excuse to have a day off. 🤷‍♂️🙄

How are you Bryan? Sorry, it’s been awhile. Things got hectic. Just making a quick post on Twitter now & then.

New kitty, Callie, is doing very well. She’s settled in & the other two are good with her. Missie especially, as she now has a playmate! 😸😻 It got down to 13C last night, so I got out the good winter doonah. Kitties loved it of course. I bought then some kitty wool throws a couple weeks ago on a 50% sale. They like them. Missie & Callie play with theirs, Mr. Kitty just snuggles up on his in HIS corner of the divan! 😸😏

I hope you and everyone is well and all is good! 👍🥰

OT: Seems Putin is seriously starting to loose his sh*t! That won’t go well!

I’m doing OK with a governor who has declared war on cartoons 😈 Although your government isn’t much better, you still have elections that might change things.

I see you on the “blue bird of mediocrity”. If Elon Musk gets serious rather than simply running another “pump and dump” stock scam I’ll probably drop back to the blog. There are some interesting people on the platform, so it will be annoying if he screws it up too.

OT: Putin misjudged Ukraine and Zelenskyy badly and his intel has been atrocious. The Russian military isn’t the threat it once was. It looks like he needs to have a ‘stroke’ soon, or Russia and much of the world will be uninhabitable.

OK… Why has the moron declared war on cartoons? 🤔🤨

I agree about Musk. I don’t like him much to be honest, but he does occasionally get it right. I posted a tweet recently with an YT interview vid of one such occasion.

Seems the Ukraine has decided to turn up the heat in a way that will drive Putin even more crazy! Especially given that one of his primary reasons for the invasion, was NATO’s growing presence in the region.

This will be… Interesting. 🙄🤨😒

And so it goes! The Kitties are good & keeping me sane right now. 😻😼

DeMentis can’t allow Disney to disagree with his policies. That would make him ‘appear weak’ and he would lose his standing among the MAGAts, if Trump strokes out of the running for 2024.

He needs to worry about Nikki Fried in the 2022 governor’s race or he will lose standing for the 2024 Presidential primary.

Musk buys the creations of others and excels at marketing the stock. He was claiming that moving roads into tunnels would would be safe during hurricanes. He obviously was unaware of what happened to the New York City Subway system during Hurricane Sandy.

He needs to takes a few courses from people with actual experience in the areas he’s interested in before he shoots his mouth off.
