Burmese govt vows action against drug traffickers

Burma’s government has pledged to take strong action against drug producers and traffickers across the country.

The 'plug in' seems to have been upgraded.

At a glance it seems like this version has features that were absent from the first.

Johnny Htoo working with KNU

While perusing the news from home at I noticed in the article about a possible summit between armed groups that leading the talks was

POPE DIES! Beatification awaits approval of new Pope.

At the doctor

A point of endless speculation and more than a couple of urban myths among doctor shoppers is the surveillance of people on the Program (Methadone/Subutext/Suboxone) who go doctor shopping. At the G.P. seeking advice about my gout and he mentioned pain management; "I use Methyl Salicylate cream topically seems to be as good as anything" I said and added "It is bad at times. Last night I hardly slept".

The Shan's fight for their Rights and Lost Homeland

The Shan State is a land of distant horizons, hills and mountain ranges, blessed with naturally- beautiful surroundings. Its temperate climate made it a very pleasant place to live and explore and, in combination with sufficient amounts of rainfall made the land fertile enough to grow all kinds of food crops.  The inhabitants were made of diverse groups who until 1962, lived together peacefully side by side. The country was economically under-developed but their love of peace and the quietness of the countrys made the majority of citizens happy and contented. They valued their simple lives and freedom more than all the riches and modern development of the world.

On despair

I watched a good documentary last night on an artist I'd never heard of before. Phil Ochs.

The Same Goes With Egos

Like an abscess, once the infection is introduced it will run its course until resolution is reached. A prick of the skin lets in some pathogen which the body detects as intrusive and quickly enough a train of events is set in place which will soon have the offending pathogen/s washed out in a flood of hemo-serous fluid commonly called pus.

Conspiracy or economics?

I ended up putting my day's adventures in news, as it's factual and relevant to all IV drug users, especially those in the Brisbane area. Here's a link to it.

Seventeen Years Ago in a Quaint Thai Prison 2

Return from Court at the PrisonIsn't the Internet wonderful! I typed Mae Hong Son 1995 into Google Images and scrolled through and found, to my delight a picture from the prison where I had stayed in the first of this lot. I downloaded the pic and used it for something then took a closer look to try and work out where and when in particular the picture was taken when I realised from the clothing that it must have been the same time of the year.

Around Here

With the coming of summer this place is coming back to life after what has been a quiet winter. Drano upstairs is getting loudly pissed on rum with Mick (the Man). Mick is the 40 year old who bashed a recent amputee to move in on the woman he was bludging off. Ned is an unfortunate sort of woman who has several daughters all remote and distant, a junkie in Sydney, another in a psych hospital permanently and the third in Adelaide where she hopes to move soon. The details are beyond me but she had been the consort of a park drunk for years before moving here where he followed of course.

Frenetic Militancy

The anti-Vietnam war protests in the late sixties made an impression along with the war itself and a generalised sense that ‘things are not all they seem’ gave rise to a desire to see ‘things as they are’, a self-serving exercise that can easily absorb a lifetime. Along with protests against the war came protests against everything and a social paradigm of consumerism predicated on global rape became the focus for so many different protests it is as if a convulsive change in our society is inevitable and also a good thing.

A world full of junk

The twenty first century has got off to a strong start for all consumers, bred from a century of war they are so full of trepidation there is nothing that cannot serve as an obstacle to achieving anything worthwhile. Those with such a thin skin even cyberspace leaves them open to attack, settle for a paycheck to pay off the man and get the corpus to work and back.
