Crab Nebula The Crab Nebula (catalogue designations M1, NGC 1952, Taurus A) is a supernova remnant in the constellation of Taurus. The nebula was first observed in 1731 by John Bevis. It is the remnant of a supernova that was recorded by Chinese and Arab astronomers in 1054. Located at a distance of about 6,300 light years (2 kpc) from Earth, the nebula has a diameter of 11 ly (3.4 pc) and is expanding at a rate of about 1,500 kilometres per second. The nebula contains a pulsar in its centre which rotates thirty times per second, emitting pulses of radiation from gamma rays to radio waves. The nebula was the first astronomical object identified with a historical supernova explosion. Jupiter's Red Spot (right) and Red Jr. (left)

_____________________________________________ dancing glitter girldancing glitter girldancing glitter girldancing glitter girlMake love (lots) not War. I had vaguely known about it, but the news this morning that Canada is one of the top armament suppliers in the world was a depressing shock to me. On the one hand we have the media and politicians talking forever about "peace" and Canada's role as a "peacekeeper" in the trouble spots in the world and then the dirty secret that big business and the government is profiting largely from war. It should be no surprise really. Big Business and the media have been pushing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and Canada's participation in both wars.

When I was twelve I was buying one pound of chuck steak and one shilling's worth of dog-meat from Stapleton's the butchers on the Princes Highway at Sutherland township. I overheard Bluey (he was red-haired) Stapleton giving a tip for the Saturday races at Randwick. I ran home and then saw a schoolfriend who knew how to put on a starting price (illegal) bet at the local fruiterers who was a S.P. bookie on the side. Both of us went to the bookie and I placed a bet to win (because Bluey had said it was a sure thing) on the particular horse. I did not tell my dad, who was an avid punter, regularly losing his bets, though he had a "system" that according to him was going to start a winning streak pretty soon. Next Saturday afternoon, I hung around the radio which dad was listening to in the lounge-room, though the place was generally very smoky from full strength Capstan cigarettes. Of course I knew my horse would win and it did at twenty to one and for a few weeks I had lots of pocket money. So since I won once, naturally I could do it again with the infallable tips from my tipster. On my next errand to the butcher, I asked him point blank for a tip and I got one, a sure thing. Since it was a winner and I wanted to increase my profit (I had a ten- speed bike in mind) I increased my bet. Still, I was cautious and kept most of the winnings from the week before. You know the end of the story. The horse came next to last. Suitably impressed and subdued, I vowed I would never bet again in my life, and I have not, so all in all I am ahead from gambling, and never got the bug for slot machines or on-line gaming, Las Vegas or even an office sweep. I have been pleasantly surprised recently to experience winning lotteries and diverse prizes in different parts of the world and not even having to buy a ticket. Kind, unknown people have been buying tickets for me apparently and I seem to be extraordinarily lucky. I believe I have won the National Uganda Lottery three times already, and I got second prize in the Irish Sweepstakes. There have been sundry others also. The only problem seems to be the devilish export taxes on these vast sums of money. It seems I must send just a thousand of two so the money may be transferred. I brought up this great opportunity in conferring at the breakfast table with my son. He barely considered it. (For some strange reason the courts have given him some sort of legal right over my my spending.) All he said was "You silly old fool. Go on like that and I'll have you in a nursing home next month!" Having read "Over the Cuckoo's Nest" again recently, I have been silent about the money ever since....after all, at my age what could I do with a million dollars or two


My message to western peoples. Your morals are an abomination to us. You must restrict your sexual intercourses to no more than four times each lunar month with your own wife or husband. During so you must recite twenty suras of the Koran and at all times the man must be on top of the woman. The woman must show enthusiasm even if her mind is on something else. That is the secret of Muslim marriage. The same actions must be used for your other wives or mistresses And I say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands. They should be not like western women who act and dress like bazaar whores. I am taking your picture with my camera-watch. Do not move while I do so. O.B.L.

Greenpeace Australia.( Note: I am not sure if I can recommend this organization, since it has grown so rich , bureaucratic and political. The ideals of Paul Watson have gone a little askew. However, I guess we need some such voice, though I have never wanted to hug a whale and as far as orcas are concerned, they are a menace to seals and other whales. Seems to me whales are a good source of food for the world's hungry and do not add to the global warming problem as much as cattle do. Also Greenpeace Australia, do not interfere with my website without permission, though I found the inclusion of Howard's photo kind of humorous.Contact me personallly and maybe we can get along.) I wonder what happens to the vast amount of money Greenpeace rakes in? What percentage goes to administrative costs? I do hope it will not be thought of as Greenfleece Australia. ******************************************************** *I recall in 1962 I was a member of the Young Humanists in Sydney and we were going to change the world. We spent considerable time protesting France's atomic tests in the Pacific. I recall a sum of money was sent to us from the States and by a vote we would not accept it because we did not know who sent it and we suspected the C.I.A. I said " Accept the bloody money and put it to good use." I was voted down. I recall our group came to an ignominious, fizzling end when our secretary David Duffy was caught stealing from our coffers. What happened with our small organization can happen more drastically, as it grows larger, then huge and the rank and file are separated from the administration. I sure hope this has not happened with Greenpeace. (Ric w) ******************************************************* Just read on "Ninglun's" website that he went to Sutherland Primary. So did I. I was there from five years old until about twelve. I started in the Kindergarten with Miss Crop. I remember Miss O'Reilly, Miss Bevan the headmistress and some other teachers. I can't remember the names only faces.. I remember "Splinter Woods" in primary school, though I did not have his class. He was supposed to have had a back injury in the First World War and always acted stiff and upright. We kids said the Germans had shoved a ramrod up his arse. My dad said he had been his teacher also, so he must have been there a long time since my dad was 22 years older than me.. I recall of the Intermediate High School the faces of the teachers but not the names. I recall we had a student's strike there once because Wednesday afternoon sports was suspended and it got in the papers to the embarrassment of our Principal, Mr Hunt.. sports was on again the next Wednesday. I recall the visit of Clive Evatt, Minister of Education. He was the younger brother of Dr Evatt, Minister of Foreign Affairs in the federal government and later Australia's delegate to The U.N. Well Clive Evatt shook the hands of several prefects who were a kind of welcoming committee at the entrance. I was one of them.(Ric) ************************************************** It is not my business "Ninglun" (I wish you would change that name. It is kind of like saying you are a human being carrot doll( Japanese)) who are doing so much writing,( all of it interesting) that you might burn yourself out, mate. Careful about strokes to the brain. Just a small artery goes and we are vegetables not able to change our diapers. I used to say that when I got old I was going to go out into the bush climb up a hollow tree and jump down into it, pinning my arms and body and just die. I heard some old abos that couldn't keep up with the walkabout, would do that. Well they don't have hollow tree like the old red-gums of Australia here in Canada and I can't climb too well anymore (I am 236 lbs) and I respect the attitude of the oldest man in the world in Japan who said several weeks ago that he wants to live indefinitely. That is stretching it a bit in my case, but while I can walk around and bathe myself and drive the car (why does everyone else have to drive so fast?) I want to stay in touch with living humanity and even with the crows who seem to be in control of the avian kingdom here in Vancouver and the squirrel which raids my trashcan and the coyotes who run through the area nightly looking for small dogs and cats,(there are notices on poles "Have you seen a white Persian pussy, answers to Kittykat, last seen Tuesday night. We miss you Kittykat?") and the racoon with her three young ones, scratching my door at night for handouts. Even though my relatives don't give a fig about me (I was pretty bad in my life) I still have some communication with the animals, who just think I am a nice guy. Dogs wave their tails and come over for a pat and even cats pause to look at me, wondering who is this stupid human trying to meow. Yes life is precious. I found that out in 1982 when my motorbike hit a car and in Brisbane Hospital. It was touch and go....On my recovery every day has been a bonus. I saw some years ago, a Japanese film about how they took their old parent up a sacred mountain, gave food and water for a few days and left the old person to die, when they became a burden. That was long ago, I presume. It was a gripping movie. I was talking to a worker in a nursing home yesterday. (She does the clothes washing only) She related how "nurses" and attendants tie patients to chairs by the wrists and how the old people are force- fed medications. This is Canada 2007!( see news results about nursing homes in Victoria B.C. this week.) Maybe the Japanese way was more humane. (Ric)

Last night both my computers seemed to go haywire and I could not get online with either. I asked my son and he said I had a really bad virus in the machines. I believed him . I put on spybot and it isolated about twenty viruses and deleted them, but the damn computers still would not come online. I contented myself playing scrabble at expert level and won two games out of seven. Incidentally I have been on that level for two whole years and have another three levels higher to go, but I will never get there. I think the little man in the computer cheats, or I am really dumb. I am learning a lot of words though that i will never use. Anyway, this morning I wended my way to the public library at Metrotown and brought up my blog. What I found amazed and disappointed me. All the moving animations etc were static and clicking a link or a photo took ever so long. Well I asked the busy librarian why that was so, and she told me that it was a slow speed network. Realizing that this is what most people still have, I will have to cut out the bells and whistles in future. I came home and then my son came home from school. He is repeating grade 12 because he did not pass in Math last years and could not get to college, even though he got 97% for a computer-related subject and did well in the other subjects. Once I almost decided to help him with his math until I saw it.I could not understand a damn thing. It was all in New Math and as he says, I am still in ancient-time math. "I think I am going to cut off the internet, if you can't fix it, I said to him. "With cable it is costing $93 a month and I think I will just walk up to the library and use it for free. Brian's internet and cable is connected to mine, so he would miss out too. He said nothing and when I went out to unload some lumber from the car, he fixed the problem, twenty minutes at the most. "Heh, how did you do it, genius?' I queried. "I reconnected the modem plug you pulled out when you were rummaging around with it." So now happily I am again online. It pays to have a smart eighteen- year- old son, even though he is surly most of the time,( except when he is on the cellphone sparking with a girlfriend (s).

gold robbery

Finally, on 8 July 1885 Edmund O'Keefe and John Rice were arrested and charged with having feloniously assaulted and robbed Mr. Cecil Stackhouse of two keys. The trial commenced in Launceston on 27 August with the two prisoners, Barrett and Ward, having been persuaded to give evidence in return for a reduction in the length of their prison sentences. According to them the robbery had been planned with the two Collins, John Ritchie Snr and O'Keefe. They robbed the bank. O'Keefe and Rice had guarded Stackhouse. Collins's part was to get rid of the bank notes through his business. Rice had little to do with the affair. John Ritchie's part had been to let them know which night Stackhouse would be visiting him.

Prime number

In mathematics, a prime number (or a prime) is a natural number which has exactly two distinct natural number divisors: 1 and itself. An infinitude of prime numbers exists, as demonstrated by Euclid in about 300 BC. The first thirty prime numbers are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113 (sequence A000040 in OEIS) See the list of prime numbers for a longer list. The number one is by definition not a prime number; see the discussion below under Primality of one. The property of being a prime is called primality, and the word prime is also used as an adjective. Since two is the only even prime number, the term odd prime refers to any prime number...

Move elephants into Australia, scientist proposes

Feb. 1, 2012
Courtesy of Nature
and World Science staff

Aus­tral­ia may need an in­fu­sion of ele­phants and oth­er large mam­mals to solve its per­sist­ent ec­o­log­i­cal and wild­fire prob­lems, a sci­ent­ist pro­poses.

Ecol­o­gist Da­vid Bow­man of the Uni­vers­ity of Tas­ma­nia in Aus­tral­ia cites out-of-con­trol fires and bur­geon­ing fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions as quan­daries af­flict­ing the Land Down Un­der. Both could be solved by in­tro­duc­ing large mam­mals, as well as pay­ing ab­o­rig­i­nal hunters to con­trol the fe­ral an­i­mals and re­store the old prac­tice of patch burn­ing, he ar­gues. Patch burn­ing is a form of con­trolled burn­ing in­tend­ed to clean out and re­new bio­lo­gical re­sources.

“I real­ize that there are ma­jor risks as­so­ci­at­ed with what I am propos­ing,” as any tin­ker­ing with the en­vi­ron­ment can lead to un­planned con­se­quenc­es, said Bow­ma­n. “But the usu­al ap­proaches to ma­n­ag­ing these is­sues aren’t work­ing.”

Bow­man de­scribes his idea in this week’s is­sue of the re­search jour­nalNa­ture.

Feb. 7 will mark the three-year an­ni­ver­sa­ry of “Black Sat­ur­day,” when nearly 200 peo­ple died in a mas­sive fire­storm in south­ern Aus­tral­ia. Fires are a con­stant con­cern in the con­ti­nent, said Bow­ma­n, but so are its thriv­ing popula­t­ions of fe­ral pigs, camels, hors­es and cat­tle, among oth­ers.

Bow­man pro­poses to ma­n­age Aus­tral­ia’s trou­bled ec­o­sys­tem by in­tro­duc­ing beasts such as ele­phants, rhi­noc­er­os and even Ko­modo drag­ons. These would help con­sume flam­ma­ble grasses and con­trol fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions, he ar­gues.

The larg­est liv­ing land mam­mal na­tive to Aus­tral­ia is the red kan­ga­roo, which as an adult weighs about as much as an av­er­age ma­n. Larg­er mam­mals used to roam the con­ti­nent—such as a hippo-sized mar­su­pi­al re­lat­ed to the wom­bat and called di­pro­to­don, from the Great Ice Age—but they are no more.

The de­lib­er­ate in­tro­duc­tion by hu­ma­ns of po­pu­lations of over­sized, non-na­tive mam­mals to a new conti­nent would be un­prec­e­dent­ed in modern times. One group, though, has pro­posed in­tro­duc­ing large Af­ri­can mam­mals in­to the Great Plains of the Un­ited States, for some­what diff­erent rea­sons than those moti­vating Bow­man.

Carol Baxter is my distant cousin. She has not directly contributed to this weblog, and has not ever in fact acknowledged its existence, but because of the valuable information I received from reading her website about our family, I am very indebted to her.
Another family website helped me considerably. This was "Our Williams Story" by another distant cousin, Kieran Williams
Our Williams Story
I am heartened by the many emerging websites about the descendants of William Nash and Maria Haynes.
Then there are the many threads from Monaro Pioneers.
Thank you for all the sources.
I am hoping that when I am no longer able to continue (being nearly 79) that someone else wll pick up the ball and continue my blog.Of course I have included my political views and my non-religious attitudes because they are part of me and readers do not have to accept them, but may actually learn a little from them.

William Nash came to Australia as a Marine with the First Fleet 1788
William and Mariah's first child, William, was baptised on Sunday 25th May 1788
A wedding was celebrated at St Phillip's, Sydney, on 13 February 1789, between William Nash, a marine, and Maria Haynes, a convict, in the presence of Elizabeth Gratten and Samuel Barnes (Chaplain's clerk)
Mariah Haynes is not listed in John Cobley's 'Crimes of the First Fleet Convicts'
By 1803 William & Maria had separated, and she took the children with her. Maria later became associated with two other men, Robert Guy and in 1816, with William Neale.

6 Children1. William Nash born on 25 May 1788, buried on Friday 19th June 1789, a marine's child.
2. John Nash baptised 15 Jan 1792 (a family source names him William)
3. Mary Nash born 2 March 1793 and baptised 2 April
4. William Nash born 27 March 1795 and baptised 4 May
5. George Nash born 26 July 1797
6. Sarah Nash was born 16 Nov 1798
6. Sarah Nash 16 Nov 1798 wed on the 15th January 1814 at St John's, Parramatta, to John Williams (a convict), 13 children

On 25th April 2010 Stephen Hawking, leading academic and cosmologist, told the Sunday Times: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.” He also points out that making contact with aliens could be very risky, stating: “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

Gropecunt Lane

Gropecunt Lane was a name used in Oxford, London and other Englishtowns and cities in the Middle Ages for streets where prostitutes conducted their business. The name derives from cunt, the Middle English term forfemale genitalia, and the act of groping. There was also a Gropecunt Lane inDublin, Ireland near where the Savoy Cinema is now. Later sensibilities changed many names of streets bearing this name to more polite variations.

In London, the street that was Gropecunt Lane was near the present-day site of the Barbican Centre in the City of London. The street was called Grub Street in the 18th century, but renamed Milton Street in 1830 . Another street with a similar history in Southwark is Horselydown Lane ("whores lie down"), which is just to the south of Tower Bridge, and was also the site of the famousAnchor Brewhouse.

We come in Third with Williams.


is a patronymic form of the name William that originated in medieval England[2] and later came to be extremely popular in Wales. The meaning is derived from son or descendant of Guillemin, the French form of William. Derived from an Old French given name with Germanicelements; will = desire, will; and helm = helmet, protection.[3] It is the second most common surname in Wales and the third most common surname in the whole of the United Kingdom, the third most common in the United States of America and Australia and the fifth most common inNew Zealand.[4]

Old Harry Williams was asked how was it that the long list of Williams lead by far those of Nash over the last couple of hundred years.

"Well, let's see.Them Nashes they was more posh and they kept the family bible, so we lot had nothing to read at night.There was no T.V. in them days, and we didn't want to waste candles, so we used to all jump in bed together and make more Williams's."


Statistics are drawn from Australian government records of 2007.[1]

Australia. The first fleet sailed from England in 1787 carrying marine William Nash and his common law wife Maria Haynes. They were the progenitors of an extensive Nash family in Australia. Another early settler was Andrew Nash. He had acquired the Woolpack Inn in Parramatta in 1821 and became well-known for the prowess of his racehorses. A later settler from Wiltshire was James Nash. He discovered gold along the Mary river in Queenland and helped precipitate the second Australian gold rush.

There were also Nash convicts in Australia. Some thrived; Robert Nash, transported on the Albemarle in 1791; John Nash on the Eleanor in 1831; and Michael Nash from Limerick, on the Rodney in 1851.

This is my niece in the Philippines who
needs serious attention from some sincere young man.

Neither here nor there.

If a man was on an escalator, but walking back down it and the elevator was located in a revolving restaurant on a large airliner going in a southerly direction and the earth was revolving on its axis and at the same time was travelling in an elliptical path around the sun, which was travelling around the galaxy, which was many movements was the man travelling in?

Wild man of North Australia.

I met Michael (Tarzan) Fomenko(shown here at 81 years) son of a Russian Princess when I was 18 and he was twenty. He was a handsome young man. I was in love with his sister Nina Fomenko, who was gracious to me but held my ardour at arms' length. In later years I met her in North Queensland where she and her husband Brian Patrick Donnellan were cutting cane. They had no mattress to sleep on, so I bought them one. Nina was always beautiful.

Toonoom Falls
Situated in the heart of Royal National Park to the south of Sydney, Toonoum Falls is a pretty, 5 metre high waterfall alongside Sir Bertram Steven Drive not far from the Garie turnoff. The photo shows the falls in flood.
Location: Royal National Park.

In the fifties, I lived close to here in a rock shelter once used by Aborigines. I used to swim in this creek a little further down the hill. My family thought I was crazy and I probably was, but life here on the edge of the National Park was idyllic if you could bear the flies, mosquitoes, snakes and centipedes.. (Ric)

*The Australian Lyre Bird is the world's best imitator; able to mimic the calls of 15 different species of birds in their locality and string the calls into a melody. Also been known to mimic the sound mobile phones.

*The echidna is such a unique animal that it is classified in a special class of mammals known asmonotremes, which it shares only with the platypus. The echidna lays eggs like a duck but suckles its young in a pouch like a kangaroo. For no apparent reason, it may decide to conserve energy by dropping its body temperature to 4 degrees and remain at that temperature from 4 to 120 days. Lab experiments have shown that the echidna is more intelligent that a cat and it has been seen using its spikes, feet and beaks to climb up crevices like a mountaineer edging up a rock chimney.

*Purple wallaby - The Purple-neck Rock Wallaby [Petrogale Purpureicollis], inhabits the Mt Isa region in Northwest Queensland. The Wallaby secretes a dye that transforms its face and neck into colours ranging from light pink to bright purple.

*The Fierce Snake or Inland Taipan has the most toxic venom of any snake. Maximum yield recorded (for one bite) is 110mg. That would probably be enough to kill over 100 people or 250,000 mice.

*The Wombat deposits square poos on logs, rocks and even upright sticks that it uses tomark its territory.

*A 10kg Tasmanian Devil is able to exert the same biting pressure as a 40kg dog. It can also eat almost a third of its body weight in a single feeding.

*Australia is the smallest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent in the world. It is the only country which is also a whole continent.

*Over 90% of Australia is dry, flat and arid. Almost three-quarters of the land cannot support agriculture in any form.

*A baby kangaroo at the time of its birth measures 2 centimetres.

*Kangaroos need very little water to survive and are capable of going for months without drinking at all. When they do need water, they dig 'wells' for themselves; frequently going as deep as three or four feet. These 'kangaroo pits' are a common source of water for other animals living in the kangaroo's environment.

Kangaroo attacks dog, man. ^

*A kangaroo being chased by a dog may jump into a dam. If the dog gives chase, the kangaroo may turn towards the dog, then use its paws to push the dogs head underwater in order to drown it.

*Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

*A monotreme is a animal that lays eggs and suckles its young. The world's only monotremes are the platypus and the echidna.

*The male platypus has a poisonous spine that can kill a dog and inflict immense pain on a human.

*When a specimen of the platypus was first sent to England, it was believed the Australians had played a joke by sewing the bill of a duck onto a rat.

*Box Jelly fish - The box jellyfish is considered the world's most venomous marine creature. The box jellyfish has killed more people in Australia than stonefish, sharks and crocodiles combined.

*The Sydney Funnelweb spider is considered the world's most deadly spider. It is the only spider that has killed people in less than 2 hours. Its fangs are powerful enough to bite through gloves and fingernails. The only animals without immunity to the funnelweb's venom are humans and monkeys.

*Lung fish - Queensland is home to lung fish, a living fossil from the Triassic period 350 million years ago.


*It is estimated that by the time transportation ended in 1868, 40 per cent of Australia's English-speaking population were convicts.
*A census taken in 1828 found that half the population of NSW were Convicts, and that former Convicts made up nearly half of the free population.

*In 2007, it was estimated that 22 per cent of living Australians had a convict ancestor.

*Convicts were not sent to Australia for serious crimes. Serious crimes, such as murder, rape, or impersonating an Egyptian were given the death sentence in England.

*Crimes punishable by transportation included recommending that politicians get paid, starting a union, stealing fish from a river or pond, embezzlement, receiving or buying stolen goods, setting fire to underwood, petty theft, or being suspected of supporting Irish terrorism.

* Alcohol- It has been reported that the first European settlers in Australia drank more alcohol per head of population than any other community in the history of mankind.

* Police force - Australia's first police force was a band of 12 of the most well behaved Convicts.

* Mass moonings - In 1832, 300 female Convicts at the Cascade Female Factory mooned the Governor of Tasmania during a chapel service. It was said that in a "rare moment of collusion with the Convict women, the ladies in the Governor's party could not control their laughter.
