I recently joined another social media platform, one that has been around for a few years but I resisted because I wanted to guage its longevity. Once I took the plunge I started connecting with friends including 'friends' I had on this platform, LiveJournal.
One of my 'friends' didn't reply to a private message of introduction so I checked my mailbox then her profile; I had been blocked.
This lady dwells in the same city and although we've never met communications had always been cordiale. I wonder what caused her to 'block' me ?

|Man dies in sex game gone wrong.
A Gold Coast man found dead and tied to a chair by his housemate may have died in a sex act gone wrong, it has been reported.
Police were called to the Varsity Lakes townhouse at 11.45am yesterday after the naked and bound body of the man in his 50s was located in an upstairs bedroom.
The Courier Mail reports police are looking into the kinky sex angle after a woman who is believed to be a sex worker was taken away in a blue forensic suit.
Earlier the scantily-clad woman had asked neighbours to call her a taxi after saying "something bad" had happened inside the townhouse.
Cabbie Gary Maher told reporters at the scene "something was amiss" and "out of the ordinary when he arrived for the pick up.
His vehicle was declared part of the crime scene and he was questioned by detectives.
"Nothing surprises you in this job, you just go with the flow," Mr Maher said.
Forensic officers spent the day collecting items from the garden and the unit itself and the death is being treated as suspicious, with homicide detectives joining the investigation late on Thursday afternoon.
"Another occupant of the house returned and found a deceased male in the premises," Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson said.
"We're certainly treating it as suspicious in this point in time."
Nearby residents were shocked, describing the street as a nice and quiet area.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-10-23/man-found-dead-in-varsity-lakes-home/5836228

|John Howard represents Australia at Thatcher funeral.
Former Australian Prime Minister represented Australia at the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. It was a natural choice, their politics and economic reforms had parallels, dragging once great economies out of recession and into economic overdrive. There were social costs and their detractors are unforgiving.
The current Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was on tour abroad at the time of Baroness Thatcher's death so she could have attended as Australia's first female Prime Minister at the funeral of the United Kingdom's first female Prime Minister but it was not to be. Serving Prime Ministers are needed elsewhere and former Prime Ministers can drop off twice a week for the next six months. The current Australian Prime Minister cannot be expected to attend every funeral around the world. Gillard and Thatcher were politically opposed, there was no love lost.
It was fitting therefore to send a former Prime Minister.
But why John Howard ? He didn't become Australian Prime Minister until 1996, Margaret Thatcher left office in 1990. The Australian Prime Minister for most of the Thatcher period was Bob Hawke.Margaret Thatcher UK Prime Minister 4 May 1979 – 28 November 1990
Robert Hawke Australian Prime Minister 11 March 1983 – 20 December 1991
John Howard Australian Prime Minister11 March 1996 to 3 December 2007

New Zealand sent a serving Minister Gerry Brownlee.

|Salon Kitty's to close.
It's a surreal awakening when an institution so well run for so many years announces its closure within two weeks.
Amanda Dwyer has arguably the best run chambers world wide. The website was vast and informative including a street address, there were multiple means of communication,and the six rooms were augmented with other spaces (such as an office/waiting room and a sheltered courtyard ) that could also be pressed into service. Over a dozen mistresses on staff meant at least three ladies on roster at even the quietest time and an ISO9000 certifiable training program for staff.
Salon Kittys has been part of Sydney's scene for twenty eight years, twenty two at the current location. The site has been sold and the business has to vacate before Easter.
The equipment has been advertised for sale so relocating and re-establishing looks unlikely, even if a buyer for the business name is found.
I vaguely remember Victoria Street terrace.before the move to Cleveland Street. I remember the renovations when it was discovered the upstairs bathroom remained upstairs only because the termites were holding hands. I recall the "slave relay" that saw the premises pumping like a sausage machine. There was the party I left at two in the morning to discover my car had been broken into and my possessions were scattered for hundreds of metres towards Redfern.
Salon Kitty's would have to be one of the few institutions worldwide that by virtue of its size could cater to "drop-ins". If the mood suddenly took hold you could detour to the the outskirts of the city and satiate your darkest desire. In most of the world BDSM venues require a level of discretion at odds with the liberal tenants of the wider society. Salon Kitty's was private and discreet but they had an address. It wasn't secret. You didn't have to send an email a week beforehand, and obtain a partial address by telephone an hour ahead then use the secret knock. It was a business and ran like any other brothel in Sydney - applying for council permits and paying taxes. .
There are other BDSM providers, mostly single operators that need twenty four hours notice or "The Kastle" only a few blocks away that runs like a smaller, leaner version of Salon Kitty's. Amanda Dwyer is about to leave a gaping hole in the landscape where Salon Kitty's used to be.

A GERMAN nymphomaniac arrested after forcing a man to have sex with her eight times has struck again - this time keeping her victim on the go for a staggering 36 HOURS.
The woman met her latest victim, a 31-year-old African man, on her way home from a sex addiction clinic in Munich.
She invited him back to her flat where she kept him hostage and forced him to satisfy her sexual demands.
The victim eventually managed to break out of the apartment after his attacker fell asleep. He was later found weeping on the street by police.
He fought back tears to tell them: “I met her on a bus. She invited me back here. It was hell. I can’t walk. Please help me.”
Munich police confirmed his ordeal in a press statement. The woman has now been taken into a hospital for psychiatric observation.
The man escaped from her apartment like the first victim last month - when she fell asleep.
Dieter Schulz, 43, had to guide police to her flat using his mobile telephone on her balcony between sex sessions.
A naked and frightened Schulz told cops: “You have got to help me. She is trying to kill me with sex. I cannot get out - and I cannot go on!”
When police arrived to question the woman she invited two officers to join her in bed for a “quickie”.http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4288330/Nympho-kept-victim-captive-for-36-hour-forced-sex-session.html

Trawling through an employment website I was entering 'keywords' to find my dream job. I have discovered that there is a new skill being sought by business. Creating twitter accounts and Facebook pages for products is called "Business Development Social Marketing" or BDSM for short.
It is anticipated that marketing teams will increasingly specify BDSM experience in future job vacancies.
It's going to make for some interesting job applications in the near future.

|The terminating road.
We all know what a "T" intersection is, the road ends and you have to turn tight or left. You wait for a gap in traffic and continue on your journey.
If you are on the continuing road rather than the terminating road, the terminating side road is periphery to your journey. Like trees and telegraph poles, traffic from side roads or driveways could kill you but we pass it everyday safe in the customs and rules of the road and physics. Even if there is a collision there is the chance to swerve and our cocoon of metal and glass will destroy itself to protect the occupants. Seat belts and airbags earn their keep and we sue each other for the repair bill.
Unless you are on a motorcycle. Even a minor collision has the potential to be fatal.
Friday morning my little sister became a widow. My ten year old nephew has lost the most doting father you could imagine.
Look left, look right, look bike.

|RIP George Devol, inventor of the assembly-line robot
George Devol, a largely self-taught inventor who came up with and patented the first robotic arm, died last Thursday at age 99. Born on February 20, 1912, in Louisville, Kentucky, Devol dabbled with electronics and mechanical engineering through his youth, but never attended college; instead, he held a string of jobs in electronics as he became more and more interested in technology and automated systems. By the early 1950s, he had come up with a working system for an automated arm

The 28-year-old Zajac, a hair salon owner in Meshchovsk, Russia, is a black belt in karate. That came in very handy when Viktor Jasinski stormed into her business and attempted to rob her. According to the Daily Mail, one well-placed kick from Zajac was all it took to floor the hapless hood, but that was just the beginning of his troubles.
Local police say Zajac then dragged the semi-conscious robber into a back room and tied him to a radiator with a hair dryer cable. There’s more. She allegedly stripped the 32-year-old naked and plied him full of Viagra, using him as a sex slave to “teach him a lesson.”
After three days, she let him go. Inexplicably, she also gave him gifts. Still, and perhaps even more inexplicably, Jasinkski ran crying to the police.
“What a bastard,” she told officers when they arrived to question her. “Yes, we had sex a couple of times. But I bought him new jeans, gave him food and even gave him 1,000 roubles when he left.”
Both Zajac and Jasinkski were arrested, and the cops in Meshchovsk, a sleepy little town miles from anywhere, will have something to chuckle about for years to come.http://morallowground.com/2011/07/12/russian-salon-owner-karate-black-belt-olga-zajac-overpowers-would-be-robber-imprisons-him-for-three-days-as-sex-slave/

|The Royal Wedding
I'm quite pleased I live in a constitutional monarchy. I'm happy Prince William has fallen in love with a beautiful woman, they will marry in a wonderful celebration that will pump millions into the British economy and the world will be a brighter place for a while.
I'm not happy that every television station in Australia feels obliged to give me minute-by-minute updates on preparations in and around Westminister Abbey. I see no reason the six o'clock bulletin should come live from a temporary building accross the road from Buckingham Palace. I don't want to see a picture of Kate leaving the family farm in her sister's car. I don't need to know where Elton John will be sitting on the day. Should I care that Britney Spears wasn't invited ?
Most of all, I'm absolutely sick of speculation about the wedding dress.
Call me crazy; here's my prediction: The bride will wear a white dress.
