Back to the backwards spelling thing -
It is called a palindrome.

You mean invasion day!
That's when we invaded and brought housing and health care and air conditioners and other stuff that many of the invadees use but don't acknowledge.
(along with some disbenefits!)

What I do. 'cept I use KP
I always shoot RAW, and when I process in lightroom I name the file with the subject and keep the KP number on the end so I can always go back to the RAW file to reprocess if necessary.

Two casts in seven weeks: that's a lot of accumulated odour (odor) between changes of 'footwear'.
Did the nursing staff who changed the casts wear gas masks? Did you?
How does the foot feel?
How long now before you can put weight in the foot?

Sav, invasions are not so popular. The Brits did that here in 1788 and the descendants of the indigenous are still furious about it.
Recent violence by more recent arrivals has led to a poll showing 70% against maintaining our present refugee numbers.
(The post WW2 European invasion was most beneficial, by the way.)

Sav, if you like it warmer, and wine, here is a good place.
There are wineries all around the North East of Victoria.
(And Saturday's forecast of 30C has been increased to 35C, which will be the lowest max temp for the next 7 days.)

Hang on; I was only tricked for a second.
If you send me an email from Nigeria, I won't be tricked even that long.






Although, did you hear the one about the Nigerian who died with billions in the bank?
No one would answer his emails.

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.
"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."
Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.
Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.
The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.
Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.
She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."
She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"
The bank manager looks back at her and says...
"It's a knick knack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

While we are on an air travel theme, can Racer answer this?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on aeroplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?

Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a plane but only a high school diploma to fix one. Reassurance for those who fly.


After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe Sheet", which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour.

Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' Pilots
P= problem reported S = solutions recorded by maintenance engineers. (By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never had a fatal accident.)

P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tyre.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what they're for.

P: IFF inoperative.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.
