Australian Victory at Scottish Lawn Bowls Guaranteed

Australian lawn bowler David Gourlay will become the first player to contest three successive World Bowls Tour finals when he comes up against Kelvin Kerkow in an all Australian showdown at the grand final of the Scottish International Open Lawn Bowls tournament. In the semi-finals, Australian David Gourlay defeated Welshman Robert Weale 6-7, 10-2, 2-0 and ninth seed Australian Kelvin Kerkow upset 2nd seed Englishman Greg Harlow 6-4, 6-6.

The action gets underway at 12:45am Canberra time December 3 (1:45pm GMT December 2) and it would appear that are offering a live webstream of the match…for a fee of £1.80 or approximately AUD$4.52.

Working hours and the Labor Coup

Good afternoon Glenn,

I’m glad you had a good time at your Christmas function yesterday, sounds like you had a lot of fun.

You said earlier that you wouldn’t want to start work at the same time as George and Paul but you would like to go home when they do…well how about this idea. On an 9-5 day, start work on Perth time, and spend the rest of the day on Auckland time…so effectively you start work at 9am Perth time by which time it is already 2pm and you’ve got a morning tea break and a lunch break to catch up on…it could be 3:30 by the time you finish them so you can go and have afternoon tea, and then just because your boss is feeling generous you can go home an hour early!

And the Labor Party Coup…slightly more democratic than the Fijian one, but still a hard choice…how do I choose between a man who can’t remember a name, and a man who, if allowed to talk for any length of time, manages to veer off topic, blame the government for everything and get just about everyone off side with at least one of his comments.

Still, if I had to choose between Beazley, Rudd and ACT Chief Turnip Jon Stanhope, I know which one wouldn’t have a chance…and it’s not Beazley or Rudd!

Have a great weekend Glenn.
