iPhone : Peter FitzSimons The Sydney Morning Herald We spoke about abstinence a few months back Peter. For the record my daily 2-3 reds and a Friday session at the local has turned to this;

My 2020 has consisted of a big day at Cold Chisel Day On The Green, one can of beer on Au weekend, that’s it!

Bonus = Dropped 8kgs

Twitter Web App : Vaguely aware. I more remember the dog with the breathy laugh, Muttley, yes?
And we didn't have tv on the farm till circa 1970? twitter.com/paultudor/stat…

Twitter Web App : Today's #NewWord, a word I have never come across before doing my book on Breaker Morant. One contemporary said he was a "dastard."
It means "a dishonourable or despicable man."
I presume the same etymological roots as bastard?

Twitter Web App : Indeed yes. The Breaker married Daisy Bates in the early 1880s. It didn't take her long to work him out, and they didn't even make their first wedding anniversary. twitter.com/TrevorLeaman/s…

Twitter Web App : Yes, of course I know "dastardly"! But I'd never come across "dastard" as a noun. twitter.com/floydthek/stat…

Twitter Web App : I am a little foggy on The Inquisition, but I do believe it involved believers being pretty darn mean to non-believers, yes? And it went for centuries? twitter.com/MurrayJCampbel…

Twitter Web App : Hello, Twitter Research Dept?
The great American comedian Steven Wright had a line like this: "I thought they might not be cops, just people dressed in police uniforms. But then I thought . . . what are cops?"
Anyone remember it?

Twitter Web App : Pastor, a serious question for you. Over the last 2000 years do you think that non-believers have been meaner to believers, or Versa-Vickey.
Do you not agree that most major religions rise because their opening premise is "believe exactly as we do, or face the consequences"? twitter.com/MurrayJCampbel…

Twitter Web App : Alright, I'll say the obvious. A permanently embossed brightly coloured label on all of President Trump's tweets? twitter.com/NBCNews/status…

Twitter Web App : My response Matt SB is that it simply takes my breath away, to write such a thing about a man who allegedly murdered his wife and three children by throwing petrol on them and burning them.
I simply cannot put this kind of insanity with the woman I knew. twitter.com/thebettinaarnd…

Twitter Web App : You are indeed. And I entirely agree with you.
Nevertheless, as an exercise, I am interested. How could I have framed the response where you would have given me a big tick? twitter.com/_Knickers__/st…
