Whats happening in my life

I found a description of me!!

Posted by Pat Kershaw on December 1, 2006

Surfing through my growing list of feeds this morning on Google Reader (the BEST aggregator for mine!), and I came across an interesting feed from Read/Write Web on filtering feeds…

Anyway, I saw this description of the author, and I am going to adopt it as a Motto. Helps keep the brain pre-occupied as my primary form of pain management…

“I’m an Information Omnivore (I’ll devour anything and everything!),”

Stingray stabs fisherman in chest off SA

Posted by Pat Kershaw on November 29, 2006

I saw This on the ABC Online earlier today

What is going on? Is the stingray population feeling guilty and trying to even the score?
They, who “apparently” have only killed 1 person in history, until they got the Croc Hunter, have now struck 3 people in the chest since that world famous incident.
For mine, I think they are trying to show Steve it was an accident…

A fisherman is recovering in hospital after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray off the South Australian coast.

Police received a call from a prawn trawler just before 10:00pm ACDT last night.

The crew member had been working on the boat seven nautical miles
north-west of Wallaroo when it is believed he was stabbed by the ray.

Ambulance crews met the trawler at Wallaroo and rushed the man to the local hospital.

Police say the barb pierced the man’s chest but did not lodge.

Conservationist Steve Irwin was killed when a stingray barb pierced his chest in September.

I’m Doomed!

Posted by Pat Kershaw on November 15, 2006

acedamia.jpgDid you know that single men die younger? ” But this should wake you up a little:

[…] and lack of a marital partner was associated with mortality before age 85 years.”


It pays to get married then, if you like a long life. (Although, frankly, 85 seems like a pretty grand old age as well.)

The study How to Live a Longer, Healthier Life — for Men� by John M. Grohol, Psy.D., actually found you need to eat right, exercise and not smoke or drink to much. So most of it was not that earth shattering!

Hello world!

Posted by Pat Kershaw on November 7, 2006

Welcome to Racefan’s Ramblings.

I guess it was time for this to happen after spending years trolling the internet and complaining about one thing or another! My problem is I like to act like a sponge and constantly look for new and exiting things to absorb. So the WWW and the Bogosphere have been close friends for a while now…� And so I came to the conclusion that the single most effective way of sifting through the exploding mass of content available on the web was through the use a of bloggers. Let me explain. They have already searched through, or discovered content, they have evaluated it as worthy of posting, and so all I needed to do was find a few who I enjoyed. Presto mt own net of “Filters and advisor’s”.

Part 2.

I have had a bad back for several years. This resulted in a bancruptsy, depression and ….. Well anyway, I moved to Toowoomba, Queenslad with my friend when He was transferred, 1. to get better medical attention, (Debatable!), and 2. To go to uni and re-train. (I� am in third year psychology). The back has continued to deteriorate, resulting in� my recently becoming house-bound. A s aresult I am looking for activities I can do when I am not to drugged up, and here I am!!!

I will be posting links to things I’ve seen and liked, opinions on issues I feel about, thoughts and inspirations I just have to tell somebody, and some interesting psychology study results, illusions, and weird facts. Just abut anything I like. I am mad on motorsport, but will probably avoid it for now, (to many flamers and inflammatory idiots followed my last attempt a few years ago of hosting www. racefanracing.com) …. Wait till next season and I will set up something so it is not in every bodies faces.

Finally thanks to Worpress.com for making this possible!
