... a Whole month ...

Phew, a whole month has flown by without a post. No wonder I am starting to get snide remarks about my lack of writing but, to be honest, I think readers were a little spoilt while we were overseas.

Besides, life is a little boring at the moment. Haven't been overseas, fallen off my bike or been hijacked recently and let's face it, safety isn't the most exciting thing to write about.

Here in S.A there is a local comedian (Darren Simpson), at least he likes to think that he is a comedian, that does the most outrageous things sometimes. A couple of months ago during the Caster Semenya gender testing debacle and the tri-nations rugby competition he phoned up the Australian Rugby Board and tried to get them to agree to gender testing of the Australian rugby team because, as he put it, "they're playing like a bunch of girls". It was hilariously funny at the time but I was watching Australia play Ireland last weekend and the whole Australian team seem to be trying to grow mustaches; they all have this wispy bum fluff on their top lips and I just have to conclude that he touched a nerve and they're trying to show that they really are men!

I guess the moustaches were probably for "Mo-vember". For the month of November, men grow moustaches- an annual growth to raise awareness of prostate cancer. It started in Australia but has spread worldwide… clearly it isn’t doing much raising of awareness in SA!
