Good Friday

I used to look forward to Good Friday. It was the day we drove to Mt Gambier, booked into a motel ready for the dog obedience trials on Easter Saturday and Sunday. My fave niece lived 50Km from Mt Gambier so there were two reasons for looking forward to going.

The Mt Gambier trials, in a HUGE reserve were really well organised and I really loved taking the mutt through its paces. Last time we went I needed two successful trials to get our Novice title. Saturday—we succeeded, yay! Sunday, all was going REALLy well when the dog raced out the ring, squatted and did a piss then came straight back but the trial was over for her. Damn! I had got the dog really settled down, got her really focussed on me so she would see and follow the hand and voice commands. But I had forgotten the all important toilet walk. We never did get out title—the arthritic hip just put an end to training.

I still think fondly of those trips to Mt Gambier. We did our one and only agility trial there, incredibly I had remembered the course but Demi stuffed up one jump so we failed that one. My next dog I will take to agility training—just so much fun for the dog—if not bothering with trials.

One year Mum and my niece’s partner were yakking for so bloody long that by the time we went past the turnoff to Woodside on the freeway traffic from the Oakbank horse hurdle racing was joining the freeway and it was very slow driving to the end of the freeway where there was ANOTHER source of delay—BAC testing by the cops, popularly known as a “booze bus.”

Now, if I was to go to the obedience trials in Mt Gambier I would come back to Adelaide on the Tuesday, or even later.

But they were great weekends, huge numbers of entrants and their dogs! Fun!

Is here a Bad Friday?

When is this religious nonsense going to end?

If Jesus rose from the dead on Good Friday why was he never seen again?

Why has a chocolate rabbit and a raisin bun deposed 'Jesus'?

for good friday my 9yr old is making calamari .... such a trooper gets in and gives it a go. It started when my y wife said she'd forgotten how she did them ... so he gave her a run down of HER recipe that he recalled from memory from the last time she did them .. he then set about showing her how she did them ............He's battered all the calamari on his own ... including seasoning the calamari.

older brother on the other hand is only interested in tasting them once cooked

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, died for the sins of the world on
Good Friday, & rose from the dead on the 3rd day, on
The Day of Resurrection ....

So the fable goes anyway.
So the legend goes............simply, because a legend can be a mythical.....making atheists happy, or a legend can relate to factual events, persons, or things......making Cristian Believers happy........

In the end, regarding an afterlife, if an atheist is correct we all will never know.........but if a Christian is correct, everyone, including atheists, will know beyond all doubt that it exists.

So Monk....I firmly believe....without a shred of doubt whatsoever......that there will come a time down the road of eternity where we all will be able to see the amazement on your face.

For that it would surely be well worth the price of admission.

Starting with zero evidence of a Roman census being conducted so necessitating J&M having to move to Bethlehem.

King Arthur was a legend—there really was a chieftain who got other tribes to form a defence coalition, fought several battles and kept the Vikings out of west England.

There is even a hillfort, Tintagel, where the chieftain commemorated in the Arthur legend was likely born.

given that the Romans were notorious for record keeping ... why is it that despite all his miracles, and despite his thousands of followers ... Jesus christ is never mentioned. The only thing on record is that someone named jesus, a popular name at the time, was crucified, a popular punishment at the time.

It's like finding some record of a 'John ' being sent to jail and pretending it's John Clesse

Same with the non-existent Jewish King David (& Solomon.) No evidence but if you look hard a hill chieftain with that name did exist and was recorded somewhere. No KING David tho.

No surprise really ... the first chronicles of Jesus' life emerged about 40 yrs after his death. Just look how stories change in one day here, with the aid of the internet and tv and radio ... imagine how much they change after 40 yrs when it's just word of mouth from one illiterate person to another. Talk about rose coloured glasses:jumping goofy:jumping goofy


Can you imagine trumpsters version of todays events in 40 yrs time without modern media? .... they'd all be claiming he was a messiah and idiots reading aboiut it 2000 yrs later would have 'faith' in the fact that it was true.

Three midgets meet in front of The World Headquarters for The Guinness Book of World Records.

The first midget says, "I'm gonna go in and get into The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's smallest hands," and he goes in.

He comes out a few minutes later, and says, "I did it! I'm now in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's smallest hands!"

The second midget says, "I'm gonna go in and get into The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's smallest feet," and he goes in.

He comes out a few minutes later, and says, "I did it! I'm now in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's smallest feet!"

The third midget says, "I'm gonna go in and get into The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's smallest penis."

He comes out a few minutes later, and he's in tears.


The first midget says, "What happened?"

The third midget says, "I only got into The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's second smallest penis........who the fuck is johnsmith !!!????"
