To the valley from the hill top ...

Daphne Anson with more gold from London about how green was my valley.

I know Byron Bay. 

Visiting that light house is among my earliest memories. Many things have changed. Back then  few people with hyphenated names actually admitted it especially around here and especially if they were men. Not unless they were the State Governor and even then they had to be on the Queensland side of the border about fifty minutes north.

I suppose that's a good thing.  

Look at this

What can I say?

This now echoes up the valley
From the other shore
Thanks to Echonetdaily
So now let the echo roar

all the way to 'Frisco Bay !!! 

Sorry. I've got to get my amusements some ways

That is Echonetdaily  which counts for mainstream media around here that picked up and rebroadcast the dump fresh from the site of the Byron Traders Friends of Boycotting Jews For Peace And Palestine Association.

under the by line

Ros Elliot, Duncan Shipley-Smith and Harsha Prabhu

They are probably grateful for the extra traffic. Don't mention it guys. I'd do the same for you. 

A retiring Green Party councillor on Byron Council and a ring in from Marrickville*    show up at the No Jew Left Alive And No Life Worth Living  New Dark Age Peace Festival in Byron Bay to lend their support.

So what?

And now another interlude.
Dedicated to our friends at Israel Thrives Chill it. There are hard times coming and we need you. 


  1. Geoff.......thanks for your kind words I'll give you call when I get some time.

    Which Greens Councillor was it.?

  2. Hi Shirl,

    I have to email you about something.

    "Byron Greens Councillor Tom Tabart was also present, promising to bring up the BDS issue for discussion with his party. So was Marika Kontellis, Greens Councillor from Marrickville City Council.

    "Marrickville Council voted to support BDS, but had to recant after a firestorm of protest in the media, much of it orchestrated by the Murdoch press. Said Marika: ‘ There was no fuss when we boycotted Burma and raised the East Timor flag, but this was evidently different.’ She called for an awareness raising campaign in solidarity with Palestine."

    "evidently different" whatever could she mean by that

    I love it the way they blame Murdoch
