I thought that it would be nice to share with the Sandpits readers the good news that we we have a new resident here at Chez Hall, after much badgering from my daughter I have got us a cute kitty cat which of course means that I am going to give our readers a long series of posts about this cute rascal as he bounces around our house and our hearts. I just hope that I can live up to the fine tradition of cat blogging as demonstrated by the likes of our learned friend.
PS did many eagle eyed readers notice that I got a tweet up onto the screen of QandA last night? its not easy to do so while maintaining your conservative street-cred. anyway this is the tweet:
Dysfunctional governments in the third world is not our fault, nor our problem #qanda

Unrepentant carnivore, that’s me, I like a tasty meat dish, from a spicy curry to a bloody piece of steak if its made of meat I will at least try it. In that vein I’ve eaten the flesh of many different species’ Not too keen on trying dog or cat but under the right circumstances those reservations could be put aside. With that in mind I find this story in the Daily Mail darkly amusing
What I want to know though is how a charge of animal maltreatment could be maintained if he had slaughtered the moggies in a humane manner? Because it surely could not rely at all just upon the fact that the man admits killing the cats to eat them any more than someone who kills a chicken to eat it could be charged with “cruelty to animals” if the killing was done as swiftly and painlessly as is humanly possible.
An ethical question for you all to consider…
CLIVE Palmer’s bid to create a new political party is today mired in confusion, amid the short-lived recruitment of former speaker Peter Slipper and a renewed push for registration under a new name.
The mining entrepreneur today announced his United Australia Party, formed just three weeks ago, will now be known as the Palmer United Party, to avoid a legal battle with the Australian Electoral Commission.
Mr Palmer and his political allies will now attempt to register the party by the deadline for federal registration tomorrow, with a requirement for 500 signatures.
Palmer United Party reduces to a rather amusing acronym of “PUP” which is so cute and will doubtless provide the underpinning for so many possible puns and possible dog jokes about this whole vanity project being pursued by Palmer. I can’t think straight for laughter here so instead I’m just going to post some funny dog gifs with an invitation to caption them as is appropriate to the Palmer United Party:
This is my 3000th post here at the Sandpit, isn’t it amazing just how quickly this milestone has come around?
I like to think that this blog functions at many different levels and its contents is as varied as life itself .
Its primary purpose has always been to keep me entertained and to give purpose to my morning cruise through the daily news reports and blog updates , to that end I like to write about the issue de jour that has taken my fancy as I sip on my first brew for the day. Of course I have also shared some of the events that happen in my own life when I have thought them notable enough and I have tried to do that with a little bit of wit and my rather wry sense of humour.
So for the next three thousand posts I hope to continue to provoke and stimulate thought and words from you, my dear readers, even if those thoughts and words are entirely focused on telling me that I have got it wrong in the most fundamental ways! Sometimes I even get feedback affirming that what I have said is correct, frankly either response pleases me though naturally the later has a somewhat sweeter effect on the palette.
As blog master here it is my duty to approve new commentators here and mostly its something that I do with out much thought, If I don’t think that comment is generated by a spam bot it usually gets an easy pass and I welcome a new player into the Sandpit. It is after all more fun for all if I encourage lively debate and lively debate needs differing points of view so I don’t usually care at all what someone believes in as long as they can be civil to others in the comment threads.
In the many years that I have been playing the blogging game there has been a rather long “conga line of suckholes” who have tried to silence me because they think that I am evil incarnate, or at least a” very naughty boy” that they wish to teach a lesson too. In the process I have had a number of individuals who have reinvented themselves many times under different pseudonyms. Usually I pick them rather quickly and either give them enough rope to hang themselves or just put them on a watching brief if I am less certain. It does not take most of them long to return to the tropes and memes that got them banned in the first place others who have been more devious have stayed under my radar for longer until their own arrogance and hubris gives them away.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this piece in the age a few days ago:
You have to love the way that the Internet makes such tools available to everyone and just how useful those tools would be to someone who has been repeatedly stalked and harassed by individuals flying different flags of convenience. Surely some of the worst offenders should be less than than sanguine about having to own the words and bile they have sprouted over the years. Now if only I could be bothered to use the software that I have downloaded…
