Its been a long time since I posted here and I want to add that I am not American so although I have an opinion it won't count, but awareness is Key

I finally found a Trump supporter -- this morning when I went to buy coffee. (I noticed a Trump bumper sticker on his car.)
“Hi,” I said. “Noticed your Trump bumper sticker.”
“Yup,” he said, a bit defensively.
“I hope you don’t mind my asking, but I’m curious. Why are you supporting him?”
“I know he’s a little bit much,” said the Trump supporter. “But he’s a successful businessman. And we need a successful businessman as president.”
“How do you know he’s a successful businessman?” I asked.
“Because he’s made a fortune.”
“Has he really?” I asked.
“Of course. Forbes magazine says he’s worth four and a half billion.”
“That doesn’t mean he’s been a success,” I said.
“In my book it does,” said the Trump supporter.
“You know, in 1976, when Trump was just starting his career, he said he was worth about $200 million,” I said. “Most of that was from his father.”
“That just proves my point,” said the Trump supporter. “He turned that $200 million into four and a half billion. Brilliant man."
“But if he had just put that $200 million into an index fund and reinvested the dividends, he’d be worth twelve billion today,” I said.
The Trump supporter went silent.
"And he got about $850 million in tax subsidies, just in New York alone," I said.
More silence.
"He's not a businessman," I said. "He's a con man. "Hope you enjoy your coffee."

So about 6 months ago I turned G+ notifications off my phone because it was bugging me with endless pings of useless drivel. I just came back to G+ today, looked down my feed for a bit, found the same stuff that's in my facebook feed and wonder why I bothered.

There are occasionally, albeit getting rarer as time passes, good posts. I like to follow the science and tech stuff, and stay away from the emotional, and idiot/political nonsense.

Also, I will never use Facebook.

Here's a really good review of the difference between a Flat White and a Latte for all you confused starbucks fans!
A flat white is not just a small latte. They are very different drinks. If you're caught in a cafe that doesn't serve a flat white, then a small latte might be

Julie your leader is an idiot, get rid of him, if you can't do it for yourself, the good of the party and Australia, do it for the chance to save these guys.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo says there has been no delay in plans to execute Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, despite the postponement this week of their transfer to the island where they are slated to be killed.

They were relieving your country of a couple kilos of heroin.... By your own argument Joko, they should be given a medal!

There you have it - now will everyone just get back on the fat!
Abstract Objectives National dietary guidelines were introduced in 1977 and 1983, by the US and UK governments, respectively, with the ambition of reducing coronary heart disease (CHD) by reducing fat intake. To date, no analysis of the evidence base for these recommendations has been undertaken. The present study examines the evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) available to the US and UK regulatory committees at their respective p...

Here we go again - Cue gun Lobby Idiots "guns don't kill people - 3 year olds kill people and if the parent had a gun on them this tragedy wouldn't have happened".
A three-year-old boy shot and wounded his father and pregnant mother with a handgun that he pulled out of the woman's bag while searching for an iPad.

I am a bit afraid of letting this cat out of the bag as I am sure once people get word of this little gem the prices will go up and there will be no availability for us! We had the top floor adjoining rooms for our family of 4 and the rooms were exceptional. This is a real Gem

We stayed next door in the hotel Lunetta and couldn't go past this amazing authentic Roman eatery. Our kids loves the seafood platter especially when the waiter filleted the fish for them at the table. Al round an excellent evening. We wanted to go back but it is closed Sunday nights
