You can’t rely on others for comfort.

We got back home a few days ago. Now that August is in sight and days getting longer we again will ponder over; what next? It seems that hibernation isn’t just for bears or snakes. Perhaps it includes some humans as well. With aging comes a kind of reluctance to get away from comfort. On travelling, thoughts go to airports and going through customs. The padding down, the taking off belts, shoes and hearing-aids(batteries makes the alarm go off). Last week-end we decided to take up the challenge and just try visiting relatives and friends. We enjoyed it.

Isis must stand back in awe when viewing those videos about our own country. I mean tear gassing, water torture, stripping 10 year olds, belting them?.
Have the passports been taken away from those perpetrators? Are they being charged?
And Brandis? What about that stone-cold exterior? I shiver. It is just so chilling. How close are we from doing our own brand of Isis, and to children.
In the ABC news ‘Just in’. Try and comprehend this;

“NT Government counter-suing two boys tear-gassed by prison guards at Don Dale centre.” It seems the Government is now trying to get even with the boys that were so badly treated and are suing two boys for over $80.000.-.
