Joan Jett - Do You Wanna Touch Me []
Budgie comments on Feb 8, 2020:
Oh dear lots of flashbacks from the music today. High School Socials (as they were called) or Blue Light Discos and this would come on, such a mixed reaction, some of us out on the dance floor trying not to be too out there, some hiding in the loos until it finished. Embarrassed boys who had just gotten the courage to ask a girl to dance and the couples who had been trying to have a quick pash in the darker corners just not sure what to do at that point and a few who had the teachers and adult separate them. So much fun.

SING, SING, SING - BBC BIG BAND ORCHESTRA with guests Teal,Davis,Delmar.
Budgie comments on Feb 8, 2020:
This created a flashback. At school there was a music program call Sing Sing Sing we had books with the songs and sheet music along with a Cassette tape that the teacher could play. We would then sing through the songs. It always started with this song. More musically inclined teachers got percussion instruments and we got to bang along.

She has a beautiful voice. Sends shivers up my spine. I love the fact that there is a simple tune playing behind her voice allowing her to carry the tune to us not hide in the music.

My oldest (12) grandson mentioned that my potatoes had little things on them.
Budgie comments on Feb 8, 2020:
I am a teacher of special ed kids and we have garden plot. We are planning what we will plant this year. We do cooking so are looking at things we use often (herbs etc) the students all know to cut the spring onions leaving a stalk with the roots to put into the garden to grow into more spring onions. Same for any herb we buy with a root base. It is a bit too wet and hot here for normal potatoes but I am hoping to grow some sweet potatoes with them this year. We have grown pumpkin, tomatoes and always keep some seeds to try to sprout (not always successfully)
I just read about how wombats were accomodating other tiny animals and even lyrebirds in their holes...
Budgie comments on Feb 6, 2020:
Within all of the bad are good stories, with the wombats they are probably not even aware of the animals in the burrows as wombat burrows are extensive. It brings out the best in some people and shows up the true nature of the worst people.
Budgie comments on Feb 6, 2020:
My favourite title I ever heard was I Scream You Scream We all Scream for Ice-cream. It is a terrible song so for those wanting it I have searched and found it. Politically incorrect, racist these days but in 1925?

Budgie comments on Feb 5, 2020:
Depends on how they voice their religion. If they believe their way is the one true way and everyone should abide by it then no vote from me. If they are simply religious themselves then maybe I would vote for them depends on how strongly I feel they will back their other ideas. If there other ideas are ecologically and socioeconomically viable and helpful then yes I would vote for them.
You know what they say ... It's all bad ... uh ... or was that ... It's all good?
Budgie comments on Jan 31, 2020:
Sort of sad. The crow is Canuck he was raised and released but came back to his human for interactions. He went missing in August and there is now a 10,000 dollar reward for his return. Shaun (his human) believes someone has grabbed him. Canuck is a Federally protected bird and went missing shortly after being banded as such. There is a woman who also claims that Canuck is her crow, (Shaun says Canuck is his friend and lets him be himself) on Facebook Shaun is still posting occasional pictures of Cassiar (Canuck's mate) and Junior (another crow that adopted him) Canuck's and Cassiar's only surviving offspring (Gort) was rescued after an attack but could not be placed back with them so a carer took him. He was released at an undisclosed location when ready. I have been following his life. (Canuck's not Shaun's that would just be creepy) Canuck and I is the Facebook page.
Ummmmm.... 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Happy Thursday everyone! Thunderstorms and Lightning - how do you feel about them?
Budgie comments on Jan 30, 2020:
I love storms and it is all my mother's fault. She did not want us to be scared of thunder and lightning so when there was a storm she threw open the windows put two stools at them and my brother and I along with her whooped and yelled, cheered and watched the lightning storms. It was great.

Budgie comments on Jan 30, 2020:
Unfortunately our current prime moron is a member of a cult and has drunk too deeply of the cool aid the religious bigotry bill is just one example. Completely corrupt. So while at the moment we are allowed to express our stance if scotty from marketing gets to stay in much longer then we won't be allowed to as it will upset the poor little cultites.
Budgie comments on Jan 29, 2020:
Love The Stranglers. Had not heard of them in 77. I think I was still listening to pop music and they did not feature on Countdown (the only music show I ever saw at the time) or on ABC radio so it wasn't until much later I heard them and fell in love with their music.

Discrimination and human rights.
Budgie comments on Jan 27, 2020:
I think this is one of the reasons I started to question religion, I was brought up in a household where my parents were equals, yes my dad went to work and my mum was at home but you did as she said when she said or she dealt with you none of this wait until your father gets home rubbish. So when the church we went to was saying the opposite of what I saw I wondered. When I was a teenager I wanted to join the navy as my father had served. I could but only in an office I wanted to be on a ship. This was well before women were allowed onboard. At a career evening a recruiter asked me what I would do if a crewman touched me inappropriately, my Dad nearby burst out laughing and said that I might call man overboard if I felt generous, I grinned he knew me so well. The guy looked at me and I then said I would have him charged with misappropriation of naval property. That is if he was ever found. My Dad taught me to change tyres on a car, I rebuilt two cars with him. One night a week each of us (mum dad my brother and myself) would have to make dinner. My mother encouraged me to travel to weird and wonderful places. Religion is used to control and to hamper people to be submissive little sheep. That is what I learned from church and my watching how my parents brought us up. Even though they believed. I think when we grow out of it we appreciate how much each person is responsible for themselves.
How old is too old?
Budgie comments on Jan 27, 2020:
I am saying teenager as that is when I was open about not believing but I was younger when I started to question the whole thing.
This is true, but I don't think they realize what it means.

I remember on every similar to this from my childhood I loved it and would sing away when it came on radio or my dad was playing music that had it in it. Mine was more gospel may even have heard it in church when my parents took me. Didn't actually have the effect of scaring me into religion I just liked the fast rhythm.

Thoughts on extraterrestrial life?
Budgie comments on Jan 24, 2020:
To quote Carl Sagan “The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.” I am not saying the life is intelligent or even halfway there, it could be bacterial, plant, microscopic still, or it could be so far past our understanding that we look like simpletons to it. If animal (as we understand it) it would I believe still consist of a tube with support systems attached (essentially we are a tube mouth to anus that has arms and legs a fish is a tube with fins) but it may not it may absorb through its skin anything is possible which makes it wondrous. As to what you saw, who am I to say I have never seen anything like that. If you decide to start a cult based on the experience I will call you out on it but I can not suggest anything for what you describe.
The cost of honesty
Budgie comments on Jan 24, 2020:
I had an amazing friend (died from cancer) who was religious, we had a great relationship, when I went to his father's funeral (in a catholic church) I sat at the back he came up and said that I could go further in I would not catch on fire, I quipped back that I wasn't sure how safe the church was going to be with me in it. He looked at me and suggested I sit as far from anyone as possible so when the bolt of lightening came it didn't take out anyone else, gave me a big hug and went to be with his mum. We joked about religion all of the time. That is how it can be, people making fun of themselves in in the worst of times and knowing that each of us believed something different but I was there for him and he was there for me when my mum died.

Budgie comments on Jan 18, 2020:
If I know it is going to happen I arrive late (after it has happened) if it is sprung on me then I will not participate, I won't say anything just wait for it to be over with. If they want people to hold hands I will step out of the group I am near and wait near a wall.

Budgie comments on Jan 13, 2020:
Too hard to name, favourites are Babylon 5, Firefly, lots of the BBC ones from Blake's 7, Doctor Who, Primeveal, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I loved the LOTR and Hobbit movies, Game of Thrones up until the final season which seemed rushed and a bit forced (there were still good bits in it) I thought Farscape was fun, liked Sanctuary and recently Dark Matter, The Expanse, The Orville is comedy. That is just what I can think of at present.

Budgie comments on Jan 13, 2020:
Were I live the power can go out because of bats hitting the power lines. I remember sitting reading by torchlight waiting for the power to come back on and the light was getting dimmer (I had not lit candles) and as my circle of light diminished and my world then plunged into darkness my thought was "now is when I get killed I have seen these movies." 5 seconds later the power came back on. Good timing. Good of you to think of the people across the road it is tough when you don't have what you need in a strange place. I travel with a small LED keyring torch so that I will always have some form of light for a short while.

A new article in Rolling Stone (posted in News & Links) : [rollingstone.
Budgie comments on Jan 13, 2020:
As far as music goes copyright is always going to be a minefield. At what point do you consider that the person has copied a song, a repeated bar, 8 notes the same. Also how do you prove the person has intentionally copied the song. You might hear a song once on the radio when you are a child but it sinks into your brain, years later you are writing a song and the tune "comes to you" you don't remember and think you are being original. So hard to determine. I am surprised authors don't get caught out more (although they tend to refer to the similar storylines as the genre or the trophe)
What's yours on caned foods like beans and vegetables
Budgie comments on Jan 13, 2020:
As cooking beans takes a while and generally I forget to cook the day before I like canned beans. I also cook a small amount each time so for 2 cups of cooked beans it is easier with a can, As far as vegetables go I only like them fresh with the exception of peas those I can handle frozen.

Hello everyone.
Budgie comments on Jan 11, 2020:
I was introduced to Sci Fi via my mother and Blake's 7 and Doctor Who. I loved it plastic/cardboard sets and all, followed up with Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the original TV show) Which I know is lighthearted and fun. My favourites at the moment are Babylon 5, I liked the beginning of Dark Matter but not too sure on how it all ended (then it got canceled which may explain a lot) The Expanse was quite interesting, I have tried a few other shows but a lot of them get canceled early on Almost Human with Karl Urban in it was interesting (before being canceled) I am currently rewatching Stargate which is not bad.
