It might only be a humble, some what inconsequential Blog thats not updated nearly as often as it should be(!) but Bull Steam Ahead has now wracked-up 1,000 HIT’S AND CUNTING!


Thank’s to all my reader’s (even those who are predominately critical) who have made this possible. It’s certainly provides much needed encouragement to carry on Bloging.

Regards Raymond.

PS I am still Toiling on my post which, mia Culpa, I promised on the weekend. I should briefly explain what its about in case I do’nt get to post it for a few day’s- Slim left home a couple of weeks’ ago and I’d by lying if I said the spilt was anything but acrimonious. I’m sure you can apreciate the delicacy with which I wish to employ in this post. Airing ones’ dirty Manchester is a tricky business and I want to be sure I’ve done the issue Justice (also for Slim, who, in spite of itall I still love dearly) before I go pubic.

Again, you’re patience is mist Appricieated.

Back on Track

Well well, well if it is’nt your old mate Flamin Raymond come crawling back onto the blogsphere after yet another long, unexplained abscess!

At the risk of gaining a reputation for making excuse’s all the time, I do have several personnel reasons for not having found the time to write for so long. I will detail them (well, there is really just one reason) in a much longer post this week end -I have been working on a draft for about a week now and wan’t to make sure its all as reasonable and lucid as possible before I post it because, it relate’s a rather touchy issure.

But anyway, while I’m here I wanted to tell a quick story about an incident I just had on the Train on the way back from the City after yet aNOTHER infernal job interview!!

It seem’s Melbourne is swarming with World Youth Day Pilgrimes for some unfathomable reason. Now I ask you, how do these muppet’s expect to find God it they can’t even find Sydney?But anyway, their all over the city in strangle-looking white Cowboy hats emblazonned with the World Youth Day logo, getting in the way and creating a general nuisance of theirself in the way only Tourist’s seem to be able to manage.

frankly I was glad to get on the train at Flinders street and head back home. But what do I find on the carriage? Another bunch of the beggers!

One of them, a tall pale fellow who I must say looked silly as a wheel, smiled at me as I stepped on but I wasn’t in the mood. Then, at the next station a Black girl hopped in to the carriage and, this scoundral grins and says to her “Good and dark!”

Well, did I see Red.! There’s no excuse for Racism in my book or any right-thinking conservatves, so I got up and approached the devil, who immediately began to look panicked.

“Now see here, you long streak of pelican shit, I said, You take that back and apologize to the Lady.” And I made to grab him by the collar, he started shrieking “Nine, nine!” which I took to be some strange Catholic venacula I’m not aquainted with (me being brought up a Protestent).

He tried to get out of his seat, so I took him roughly, by the arm and marched him to the door.

And I’ll be buggered if the devil didn’t begin babbling in tongues like some Biblical creature visited by the Holy Ghost!

The train was off again, and as I held the spluttering young fool one of his companions approached me and said “no You don’t understand, he is German.” To which I replied “I understand just fine, sonny and now I understand why he’s a Racist mongrel too.’

I threw him off the train at the next station and called hima “Nazi bastard” for his trouble’s.

Meanwhile, the Black girl had disappeared in the commotion,. Now I don’t want a bloody medal every time I look after someone, but a bit of gratitude would’nt go a stray surely!

All in all another mad day in the City. Thank Christ I live in Dingley!

A word to my critic’s

It was bound to happen eventually I suppose but, I will admit I am astonished that it took only one Political post to race the ire of the Left half of the Australian blogsphere.

I should be specific. Most of the traffic my Indiana Jones item recieved came from one sight, of which I am aware of but will not give any encoragement by way off publicity.

I have said it before and will do so again: I have never claimed to be an accomplished speller or Grammerian. I do my beast and try to ensure my meaning’s are always clear dispite the lack of sophistication in my   delivery.

I will accept and tollerate criticism of my idea’s and my politics, and will not bork at opportunity’s to engage in sprited debate with people in this Blogs comment’s section But I will not adibe by snide, elitist digs at my expression.

I believe these rules are simple and fair (some might say they are alot like Me!) and I ca’nt do any better than that. As you see I, do not take myself to seriously, but this is my Domain to do wish as I with and I will not have term’s dictated to me here.

I hope this is the first and last time I am required to spell this out, I would like to go one Bloging and if not been engaged in good Faith and humour then bloody well left alone!

I should add, in closing that not all of the recent inundation of comments were negative. I found some support from a fellow named Kevin Kang, who claim’s to be the best Christian raper in the Eastern suburbs!

Now I’m not silly enought to believe this character is real as he seem’s but, it was Lovely nontheless to have some good–natured fun amongst the shower of spittle and flying birdshit!Lets have more civility and less hate and I’m sure we can be civil opponents if not freinds.

Leopard’s don’t change there spots

I have’nt gotten to political on this Blog up to this point, who know’s why -maybe on account of not wanting to come across as a reasonable, thoughtful Man fist and foremost rather than a ranter.

But its worth noting that I did set up this site as a post off defence against the erosion of common sence and Conservatism in the West, and I woud’nt be doing my job if I let a item like the following go though to the keeper.

The ABC, a somewhat Commonist organisation it self, put the following news item on it’s website today;

Communists call for Indy boycott

A branch of the Russian Communist Party has called for a boycott of the latest Indiana Jones movie, describing it as crude, anti-Soviet propaganda.

The fourth movie in the series is set during the Cold War in 1957 and pits Indiana Jones against a sinister KGB agent, played by Australian actress Cate Blanchett.

In an open letter the St Petersburg branch of Communist party has warned the star of the film, Harrison Ford, not to visit Russia, saying he will be “beaten and despised” if he does.

 Now I’m fairly curtain Harrison Ford -a fine actor and US citizen -would have better thing’s to do that hang about in Russia being beaten and despised! but if this is’nt typical of the dilusion of the Left then the Pop doesn’t wear a silly hat! What we have here is  a bunch of people who not only cannot see Escapist entertaiment for what is it, but there refusing to acknowledge the realties of the past with respect to the working’s of the KGB.

The level of dillusion is consistent with what we see in the Left over here in Australia. The communism was brought down in the Soviet Union after bringing misery and Death to billions of people yet their is still a party of these scoundrals ready to ponce like the cornered spiders they are .They cling desperately on to the view of an Idealistic past that never really existed and continue to spread thier dangerous lies without shame.Sounds familiar does’nt it?

The worst ofenders are the young students you see in the City, flogging there badge’s and Socialist magazines – These people were but the sparkle in the Postman’s eye when the Berlin wall fell, but they presume to tell the World that this poisonous Idelogy is the answer to our political woe’s! I little research wouldnt go stray, and they call themselves Student’s!

Just when you think the world isn’t such an insane place, the Commo’s turn up and threaten a much-loaved film character. It beg’s belief! (or at least it would if it wasn’t the Left we were talking about

I was’nt going to see this film originally, but Soviet missile’s wouldn’t stop me now. I will be sure to watch it with buttered popcorn and all the American sweats (or Candy as, they say )  my teeth and guts can handle!!

A Quick update

Well, doesn’t time get away from you sometimes? Now I realise I do’nt have to many readers at this point in Time, but the last thing I wanted to do was alienate them this early in the peace. I have been busy with various odds and sods lately, which I will endover to fill you in as soon as I can, but in the mean time I offer the following update;

  • Anzac Day, which is alway’s a sad time for Family Bull, was a sad time made more difficult by Slims’ refusual to take part in the dawn Service this year. Not making the time to Blog about this is regretfull as I feel I have born the pain with some degree of lonelines and have’nt gotten things of my chest. I will try writing something about this soon if if wouldnt be considered to self indulgent or late,

Button’s is fully recovered from his biting ordeal!

I am still looking for Employment. I have had several interviews over the passed moth and feel I’m getting into the swing of that sort of thing, which takes some getting used to especially for a modest Man such as myself.Blowing horns, as my ol’man used to say is for Trumpeters and ducky boys! Not of course, that there is anything wrong with been a Poof in this day in age mind you. I do’nt discriminate against anyone, whether their Black, or not.
(Well I do discriminate against the Left, but a more villinous lot you could’nt find under a rock in Satan’ s reptile enclosure, and I offer no apology for that and looking after the well being of my country and it’s Future.)

My relationship with Slim is on rockier ground than its ever been-he is threating to move out of home and I have tried to forbid it but, short of chaining the devil to hotwater system there is’nt much be done, He is old enough by Law to do whatever he see’s fit, and if he chose’s not to listen to his own Father and Reason I am powderless to stop him.

I still feel dispite what everyone seem sto be saying about him, that Brendan Nelson is continuing to do a fine job in tough circumstances as Opposite Leader.  He’s stance on the Baby bonus was particularly principaled and I am yet to get the feeling there is anyone else in the Party who would do a better job at present. I always considered Peter Costello a worthy successer to Mr Howard but he seem’s not to want the job, so what can you do? You can lead a house to water but you ca’nt make him drink, as the saying go’s.

Its always the way –here I am bellyaching that I don’t find time to update my Blog and I go and turn what is supposed to be a breif update into a bloody half a Novel! Well no matter, it just remind’s me that writing a few words doesn’t necessarilly take as much time (or  effort)as I convince myself it will. I suppose Bloging is a bit like walking the dog in Winter; you make all sort’s of excuses about other things you have to do just to avoid getting out in the cold but once you force yourself to get out their you remember how little hassle it is and how much you enjoy it.

I must remind myself to remind myself more often!

The week from Hell

Terrible news today – my dog, Button’s was attached at the local park this morning by a big, snarling mongrel of a thing that was off it’s lead and obviously out of control of it’s idiotic owner. It looked like a cross between a Boxer and a Rottwheeler or some such– vicious and unpredictable. I gave it an almighty kick in the rib’s to get it away, and the owner had the nerve to have a go at ME!! I told him were to go in no uncertain term’s and got down to help Button’s. By the tim eI got back up with the poor bugger in my arm’s the cowardly bastard was gone.

A religious Man might ask what he’d done to offend his Maker! first the trouble with Slim and he’s bloody Leftist mates, now the poor dog get’s it, who had never done any one or anything any harm in his nine year’s. I’m ropeable.

The vet has told us the damage is’nt to bad, no broken bones although he needed some stiches under his front right leg and is sore and understandably distressed. If I ever see that bastard and his Cur at the park again, so help me god I will bloody his nose.

I just do’nt understand why someone with a dangerouos dog would be iresponsible enough to let them of lead to the danger of all and sundry. Every body know’s there dogs’ personality and propencity for violence, and it is the height of stupidity to not restain it acorddingly.

Button’s was actually my wife’s dog. She brought him, without my Permission, not to long before she took off, maybe a year top’s. I had never liked dog’s — infact, if not for Horse’s I would’nt say I had an interest in animal’s at all-but what could I do? Slim had become attached to the little blighter and I felt duty bound to look after it. And I did

Its amazing how quickly a dog can turn you’re affection around. It go’s without saying that a Pomeranian is’nt quite the right Dog for a Man of my statue ,and I have never gotten used to the silliness of having to call out the name “Button’s” at the park when the devil is off sniffing other dogs arse’s —incidentally I tried to get him too answer the name Ralph many year’s ago but no avail.

But dispite all this I’ve grown to love him. Slim, off course has lost interest in him now that he’s an O So important Intelectual. But he’s a valued part of Family Bull, which make’s todays development all the more painful.

They say bad luck come’s in three’s — I shutter to think what my third metophorical kick in the gut’s is going to be!!

Button’s is on the couch sleepy, sometime’s watching me as I type. Good luck mate and get Well soon.
