News? Today's West Australian doesn't have any.

 My daily early morning walk is designed around a stop halfway for a coffee, buy the paper, and stop and do this.

    1. Walk point is 5000 stps of 15000 a day
    2. paper cost $1.70 weekdays
    3. coffee is $1

    "some nonsense for you, I used to stop at Maccas but saw an add [ yes they do work!] that 7/11 had         $1 coffee;- I used to pay Maccas $4.10 for coffee and "nick" the paper but I pay $2.70 for coffee and       paper and feel much better"

Today's Issue: With No Harvey Norman or JB Hifi ads - but they are stuffesd in my letter box today[?] - the paper is very skinny! so much so, I was told by the lady at 7/11 that Facebook had banned news... yet the week has planty of stories - the Australian Open, the Facebook story, the vacs rollout, the Canberra Sex Scandal, the Western Australian Election run off. plus lots ofother things... but not enough for a "think" paper if no ads.... and they wonder why us plebs have lost interest in the "news" 

I get it [ the daily paper ] to keep in "her inside's good books" she does the crossword and puzzles.

Mmmm... isn't there something going on with Mexit and Oprah at the moment.

  1. My story is somewhat different - I drive to the newsagent!

    But the real news is that I have now begun again to buy the two major daily newspapers as I need their book reviews to enable me to reserve a few more interesting books at my local library.
