Here's a bit of news you ladies will like.

Berlin’s parliament has declared International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8, as an official public holiday. Wow, that's a win for women!


Wonderful news Bijou..thanks for sharing!

                        This year the theme for IWD is ... #BalanceforBetter

"Balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage ...

Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive."

International Women's Day.com


So many women are being honoured each year for their incredible contributions to society..one such woman is Ita Buttrose..someone I have admired for decades..

Thank you for the video Sophie. Hope you have a great time tomorrow. I'm off to a multicultural lunch with some lovely ladies tomorrow. Hope I can pick their brains on a few things :)

The rise of the woman does not mean the fall of men.

Have a great day ladies and happy women's day.

That's lovely Ray :)

Ladies

Ah the super TROLL lothario, womanless, friendless and nothing to do with his  last remaining days disrupting another thread again.

Sick old man or is it woman?

Yep cretin lothario we all had a great day celebrating with our wives. What did you do honey? 

Ray and Reagan, I'm proud of you two. Well, I was too busy learning my speech having been asked by the ladies to give a talk on more women being boating skippers. They warmly applauded, gave me a very expensive bottle of wine and then the lot of them went off for lunch without me, including my wife. 

ROFL, you shoulda taken a cut lunch Abercrombie!

Poor diddums Abe, here I've baked you a cake. Reagan had to have a slice to test it, since my baking skills are nothing like those of Bijou!

Nor mine..thank goodness for the French cake shop nearby etc. 

KIAH, thank you for the cake, you must have heard it on the grapevine that I have a weakness for chocolate. I think it stems from the fact as a boy growing up in old Russia, chocolate was very scarce on the ground, now I can't get enough!

Image result for man spat out by whale

 

He didn't have "a whale of a time"..said man who was spat out by a whale.

Now he knows what Jonah felt like!

 

Had it been a sperm whale Sophie, he could have been a very rich man if he had the presence of mind to do some ambergris gathering!!

Ambergris is whale vomit and used in the most expensive perfumes to make the scent last longer :)

Lucky man to have survived!

Whale vomit! Now I shall have great difficulty looking at my bottles of scent in the same light Bijou!

I wonder how scientists discover something like that. Oh well..

That's some story. Whales are really very gentle creatures and I have never heard of a human being eaten by one.

We see some fantastic whale migrations off the coast of WA. Last season was one of the best.

A whale cannot swallow a human

"Despite the size of its mouth, the dimensions of its throat are such that a blue whale cannot swallow an object wider than a beach ball. The heart of an average sized blue whale weighs 400 pounds (180 kg) and is the largest known in any animal."

When I have been to the museum in Eden there is a story of a bloke being swallowed by a whale and he lived for some time after some time in the whale 

see here

I understand a whale can swallow a fully grown octopus..so perhaps it's possible to swallow a human..

However..I believe a person would be drowned in no time in the whale's stomach..

 

Yes a very beautiful sight watching the whales off the coast of WA..a stunning picture below and the video is probably one of my favourite advertisements...

You are right Bijou :)

One of my favourite tunes Sophie. Usually we join celebrations in Melbourne, but this year Reagan has Formula 1 fever and the Grand Prix being today, I've hardly seen him.

Still, I'm having a very lovely quiet weekend!

Glad you enjoyed a peaceful weekend KIAH!

We share your sorrow New Zealand..

I second that Sophie.

 

Ah well, you have to hand it to the man. A good win and shame about Daniel Ricciardo.

Valtteri Bottas, winner of 2019 Grand Prix.

Yep mate, shame about Daniel. We still cracked a bottle in his name though and wish him luck for the future. Heard Lewis Hamilton is considering retirement. Wonder what that's all about?

He is about to release his first music album and wants to focus on that Abe. Think his singing career is more important to him than his racing.

Ah so! Didn't know he sang Reagan, good on him. Much safer than the circuit.

Beyonce is taking him under her wing, I hear!
