Sunday 27 September 2009

Posted by The Coach on September 27th, 2009

Our very own Coach, Storm is competing today at the Weightlifting W.A. Grand Prix 3 Meet. Good Luck Storm. We know you will dominate and give it all you have!

A special mention to William, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

“What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly – that is the first law of nature”. Voltaire.


Happy Birthday William

    “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

    So very true Gus, so very true on many levels, that is a very appropriate quote for my current thought processes. HAPPY B’DAY William, may you celebrate surrounded by excellence…

    Let us not speak of tolerance. This negative word implies grudging concessions by smug consciences. Rather, let us speak of mutual understanding and mutual respect. Father Dominique Pire

    Very interesting you quoted that Andrew, as that was one of the quotes I was deciding whether to put up or not, but decided to go with Voltaire.. They do say great minds think alike! 🙂

    My favourite quote, totally unrelated to today’s discussion but with Police Rememberance Day on Tuesday I think it is timely.

    “People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
    George Orwell

    And this is a huge problem with today’s Police (Force??) and society in general. People do not sleep peaceably in their beds anymore and we don’t have rough men standing ready to do violence on their behalf.

    We have the men, and women, but they are hamstrung by legislation, policy, procedure and do-gooders who have no idea what it’s like to be attacked in your own home by some low-life piece of scum that has never worked for a living nor taken any responsibility for their actions.

    When young fella’s knew they’d get a clip around the ear for playing up we never had the problems we do now. Crims knew that if they got caught, they got caught and they’d expect what they got. Now 95% of people try to fight you, spit at you, no one takes responsibility for their actions and they abuse the shit out of everyone and then complain when you’re rude to them.

    Mutual respect. That would be nice.

    And I love that quote Gusman. Excellence is a habit, no doubt.

    Hey Pete,

    Just wondering if you have had much success/experience treating hayfever. Mine is pretty bad and I get next to zero relief from otc medication. If you have any ideas I’ll make an appt to see you this week. BTW it is bad enough to wake me up several times a night.

  10. Pete Yeates said

    Yep Steve, I am very confident in the natural management of hayfever.

    Here are some tips –

    Avoid mucus forming foods – Dairy, sugar, alcohol, juice.
    These foods are more likely to cause the inflamed mucosa of the sinus passages to produce more mucus, which leads to more irritation.

    Drinking 2 ltrs of plain water daily can help the mucosa flush away the inflammation. This will only happen if you are not taking medicines like Rhinostat which effectively stops the draining of the sinuses and therefore prolong an attack.

    At least 5 grams of vitamin C daily is usually required to help the body reduce the inflammation in the sinuses.
