Jontee, I am a very keen Patrick Whiter: please elaborate...

I am too, but you should take a look at the Patrick White Letters - two volumes. He was a mean, miserable [censored]

Letters not diaries

As a sidebar to this fascinating exchange I can offer a slogan I occasionally deploy having been married to an actress/ award winning author  and( obviously) meeting her cohort of friends ...." I am creative so normal standards don't apply to me"

I believe Patrick White to be the sine qua non validating this observation.

Allen Jones was a genius coach of young rugby players as well.

Funny old world really

Made me chuckle. I'm married to an award-winning author...I've been trying to teach her the basics of being a Housewife since I met her. That was a joke, Joyce...

Ross Lyon likes to have instant success. Not sure he'll get that quickly with the current saints list.

I mean last time he coached the saints he had Riewoldt, Hayes, DelSanto,Goddard and Montagna in his team. Not sure many current saints stack up to them.

Then don't forget he just organised his own exit out of there

Ha ha she tried to teach ME house keeping for the duration of the marriage

By chance she was off to buy property in Bali when Covid hit so we ended up  sharing house again during "stay at home orders".... which was a very long time, but I had  learnt to do my share of house keeping ,while Covid brought our son to stay and he's a chef so...I was the "dishy" as well .

No joking..(smile)

All of this has been orchestrated by an ex coach. Has been talking to Lyon for months, from what I understand 

Wouldn’t suprise me at all. Heard him on the radio last Monday morning. 
Still holds some sway down there at The Moorabbin Asylum

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
