Bear for Prime Minister !

I have always been slightly amused or highly annoyed by politics but it certainly has reached an all high at this moment in Australia..I mean please ! I was listening to ABC radio on my way home to the post office on wednesday and just caught the tail end of a discussion about the battle the nurses here are going through to get the acknowledgement (in pay etc) they deserve and a caller mentioned that their campaign would be more effective, if they would look towards the police union, why? Because nurses are nurses because they love to nurture, not going into conflict, whereas the police, well, they are used to conflict. So, what are politicians good at, why do they choose their profession? In an ideal world , you would say :”because they want to make this word a better place for everybody and fight to make things right for all people”… This is not the idea I get –and I am sure I am not alone in this- with this latest development in the newest Aussie soap opera. The first thing I’d like to say to Gillard and Rudd is “Go to the Naughty Corner NOW!” as if they were a couple of misbehaving kids…. The Message it is giving to the public is that politicians, regardless of gender or political inclination, are just interested in one thing: POWER. So as a nusre you want to nurture, when you are a cop you handle conflict and when you are a politician you are into Power. Forgive me , but I do not think that is the right reason to be a politician. Also a wise (wo)man once said “when two dogs fight , the third one gets the bone”…please, please I hope the bone doesn’t go to you know who….so, in order to make this a clean, well behaved political campaign, with a new front man that will make all of us proud, I am advocating BEAR FOR PRIME MINISTER! I must admit it is bold and I was a bit hesitatent at first, since Bear had shown a bit of complacency going to work lately due to the whole political awkwardness, but just as the going got tough he did not falter, did not put a press conference together in the middle of the night nor accuse anybody else, so, after 2 whole days of silent and careful bunny deliberation, he hopped to the office and got on with it! So, I say: Vote Bear for Change ! ;D

Bear deliberating over portfolios

Sophisticated, suave, intelligent, well behaved (does not back stab or talk rubbish) while having a wonderful sense of humour: great attributes for any politician

This week has been filled with spinning spinning SPINNING –more spinning, trying to get as many yarbs ready for the Sydney Royal and all the shows coming up! AND custom orders-, skeining, dyeing and batt making, just to name a few I really love how the batts came out: super luxurious and sparkly and very fun to spin or felt with. So have fun snaffling and creating ! Enjoy!

These batts have been hand carded with love
You will be able to lay it all out onto a big table, divide the layers and start felting or you can make the most awesome corespun art yarn with it. Due to the fact that it has been carded on a very fine cloth it is blended well enough to spin fine yarns as well !
