Dear Bill, Dennis, Kate and John (C.J.), Well its another week in the salt mills of Australia. The wharves are still blockaded and the Prime Minister still looks like twerp. ( Twerp means a small bird sitting uselessly on ground. Or a Pres with his pants down in the Oval Office. -- Honest she's a practicing proctologist.') It is funny to see the reaction to the Unions blockading the wharves cause they lost their jobs most likely illegally. I wonder how many of the whingers have heard of M Gandhi. The papers are whipping up a storm and the police are trying to stop a blood bath. When does breaking the law become civil disobendience (when half the population is on one side and half on the other.) I am not surprised that there are too many lawyers in the States and they are over represented in Congress. Is it not true for a lawyer to work someone has to do something crooked, conform with a law or wonder if you are conforming. Ah Catch 22 if you are a lawyer how do you stay in work. You make new laws, easy and as people get used to them you change them. You close the shop as well. I found out more about Codes and yes they are becoming internationalized. I really would like to know more on hte Nordic Codes if any one has any information I joked with Bill and was amazed at the response. Obviously a raw nerve. In any change one needs a grandfather clause. But the practice of engineering needs tightening every where. And Civil and structural should be two separate practices. (PS I have made a living off sewers when there was no other work around. Dinna knock it please.--Joke.) Most people do not realize that it probably needs tightening more in the intraplate areas rather than just the Californias of this world. I sent my paper to the Cairns conference on Masonry. And made a panel with fireclay instead of cement. ( Ok stop laughing it is a bit soft but I was in a hurry.) Today I have to wash the clay and sand out and fix it. And I have absolutely no idea wha the LOL every one is refering to is? Have a nice weekend John Nichols. ( Me I get to go to swimming lessons, watch Big Dog and Miss Kim (She kissed me on the cheek once when I was Santa.) cook barbie at a friends place.. No shrimp only prawns in Australia and probably finish my paper for England.) Thanks for the interesting week. This list is more fun than Punch and cheaper.
