Carols at the crem

By kimba 7 November 2005 20

A little birdie has told me that there will be Christmas Carols at Norwood Park this December. It’s an interesting concept I must admit and I guess the people ‘living’ there will not mind too much.

Apparently lots of local and interstate stars are on board or should I say are dying to perform on the night.

I was thinking about some songs that could be performed on the night, like David Bowie’s ‘Ashes to Ashes’. Not very Christmassy though.

Any other thoughts?

What’s Your opinion?

Mick Rice, it has been interesting to watch all the comments about him. You can’t take anything away from what he has done, but as he is now back in the Army guarantee he stuffed up somewhere. He is an awful person, yes he has served in all these places, but get him talking about how he feels about anything and you will also be disgusted. He usually leaves a trail of debt behind him, the Army suits his misogynist personality perfectly and he gets to move around every two years when they want to get rid of him, and they do want to get rid of him. He is a bully and he is awful and anyone that thinks he cares about them, sorry he only cares for himself.

Wow, This has me riled – another thing shame_shame_shame, why would you pick on someone who has served his country in places like Timor and Rwanda – have you no shame – after all u shamed yourself thrice. And then he takes a place, that most people only visit once a year, and turns it into a very special place, my mum and dad are there – and it saddens me so much to see the neglect over the past 9 months since Mick left. My mum and dad are located near a creek and every person who I speak to out at Norwood feel the same as me. Arrogant and verbally abusive you say, well I and so many people I know that have areas there for our loved ones – would disagree – I would be interested to know whether you have any one special there, or did you even go to the carols last christmas or the service he organised in Autumn, or the remeberance service in November – I’d be hedging my bets and say – no. This man is a champion and I would hazard a guess and perhaps you may be a former employee – one who was given the chop when he first started. Crawl away you flea…. crawl back to where you came from. Canberra and Norwood’s loss is losing a visionary person such as he.

Which reminds me – who is responsible for that awful coffee, stale sandwiches and limp flower arrangements in the shop/caffeteria at Norwood Park – woeful stuff – perhaps there should be hate website to that shop

Hmmmmmm,haven’t seen this thread since January, but it seems to me that shame_shame_shame who says…and i quote…”But my facts are correct! As a matter of fact i know so many people that dislike the man, i could start my own fucking website.” that there has only been one negative comment…that being from him/her 3 shamed self, and having googled for the website on the I hate Mick Rice website – i just can’t seem to find it.Any tips on where it is…..BTW – been out to Norwood lately – now that is a shame_shame_shame – disgraceful state since the most hated man in Canberra left – although I do believe he no longer resides here.

Then comment on a few more things my friend….

If everyone agreed on everything the world would be a seriously boring place….

Cheers

Well, it’s nice to know that you are looking for a positive outcome.
You sound like a really happy, friendly person.
Maybe we could be friends one day.

Thumper 2:36 pm 22 May 06

Your comment came up on top of the recent comments list. Everyone would have seen it. As such I actually didn’t have to find it, it was simply there.

Anyway, I’m happy to agree to disagree. Doesn’t worry me the slightest.

shame_shame_shame 2:21 pm 22 May 06

If you really didn’t give a fuck you wouldn’t be wasting your time on this post getting upset about someone you don’t even know, disliking the man.
You found my comment pretty quickly though….considering that the last comment on this was back in January…
If i didn’t know better one might think that Thumper is infact Mick Rice trying to make himself feel better…….

shame_shame_shame 2:09 pm 22 May 06

There is no problem……you told me to get my facts rights so i said that i was entitled to my own opinion….
Who are you to tell me that my perceptions of the man are wrong?
So Army man……what else did Mick do for you while you were serving with him that has got you running to his defence?

Thumper 1:58 pm 22 May 06

“Your entitled to your opinion which you have openly put out there”

Yes, I am…. And the problem is?

And if you want to make your own web site, then go ahead. I really don’t give a fuck.

BTW, learn to spell.

shame_shame_shame 1:46 pm 22 May 06

Sorry Thumper, i’ll make this one easier for you to read…..
I never said that you bagged him….. in fact your constant sucking up his ass makes me sick!
Your entitled to your opinion which you have openly put out there, and now i am putting mine out there too!
So thanks for the polite input….SUNSHINE
But my facts are correct! As a matter of fact i know so many people that dislike the man, i could start my own fucking website.

Thumper 1:09 pm 22 May 06

Hey Pal, (in case you missed my other post, and learn what a joke is FFS…)

Get your fucking facts right! I have never bagged Mick out. In fact if I met him in a pub I’d immediately buy him a beer.

I know Mick Rice as well. He’s a top bloke. He was my fucking CSM for Christ’s sake! I used to do bayonet drills with him screaming in my ear. I loved it.

I’ve seen him stand up for his Diggers in a club when we were under the weather so to speak. He used to let us get out on the piss now and then as long as we didn’t act like pork chops.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for him.

Get your fucking facts right sunshine….

It has disgusted me to find all these wonderful things posted about Mick Rice. Having dealt with him myself, i know Mick to be a very different person. Kimba, Thumper and Busybee, it’s sad that you feel the need to jump on a website and try and pick up the tatters of this man’s respect, dignity and career by feeding the public with your one eyed views of him. Perhaps you should spare a thought for those who were unlucky enough to see the arrogant, verbally abusive, and adulterous side to Mick Rice who now have to deal with your ridiculous crusade to put his name up in lights.
Served in Timor, Rwanda……what a hero! You would think that a person with this sort of resume would be a decent bloke, but spend 5 minutes with him and you will be sadly mistaken. Unfortuantly it seems Mick forgot that he doesn’t have control over people anymore! Good luck to you, i am glad that you can peel back the layers of a man like him and still have a grain of respect for him, but if you come out into the real world and ask people what they think of Mick Rice, you couldn’t pay people to have the same view as you!
P.S I have a printer you can borrow if the next step in your campaign is brochures or flyers!
MICK RICE FOR PRIME MINISTER!
What a JOKE……..
