Red wine slows dementia

 For many many years I’ve been a participant in a research project to determine if red wine and dark chocolate really protect against dementia and cognitive decline? It was tough consuming all that dark chocolate and red wine 🍷 The good news is that dark chocolate and red wine do help reduce the onset of dementia. Here’s a link to the story …

A snow job

 You have to laugh at some of the official weather forecasts 😂 Rain is forecast, but just sunshine or Fine and sunny forecast, but it rains. Do they ever look out the window before issuing weather forecasts 🤔 By my statistics, the weather forecast is 50% seriously wrong.  Then it gets more silly 😜 Today it was reported that SA experienced the lowest temperature (in parts of the state) in 32 years. And to really exceed reality, it was reported that snow probably fell in parts of northern SA, but there was probably no one there to see it ie. it probably fell in the remote uninhabited regions 🤣 Yes silly, but we do need a laugh during COVID-19 lockdown 😷 If anyone did see snow today, then let me know and I will pass it on to the Bureau of Meteorology 👍 

Federal Election 2022

  Here my thoughts on Federal politics … To have any chance of federal Labor winning the next election, it’s time for Anthony Albanese to be replaced. He’s just not cutting through and resonating with the people. I don’t think he’s got the ticker. His major fault is whinging about the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out and not focusing on other issues. The trouble is that I can not see anyone on the opposition front bench suitable to replace him, other than Bill Shorten. I doubt that Labor will make the switch, but it should if it wants a chance to win. Any government needs a strong opposition; but Labor is failing on that account. Labor knows its problem, but doesn’t have the nerve to fix it. Besides there is no apparent alternative leader.
