Another of life’s little divertessments arose to take me away from the keyboard and Smooth Draw 3.0 for a few days. Should be back to full strength next week.
Take care now! And don’t let the NO Coaliars and our Prime Winky Dill take too much off you.
In Corporate Jargonese that something would go something like this: “Recently, the attention of the body corporate was drawn to the determined efforts of a small subsidiary group, based in the headquarters of the company, to usurp control of central management. This attempt was being achieved by creating a small entity and then, by slow and persistent growth, expanding the size and complexity of their operation until such time that they would have achieved a size sufficient to control the company by starving a core management group of essential resources. This would have had the effect of creating chaos in the remainder of management and the ultimate collapse of the corporation.
Adventitiously, the attempted takeover was detected in a general audit of corporate headquarters and steps have now been taken to expunge the takeover group before the corporation experienced serious and irreparable damage to its day to day operations.
Once again we can applaud the due diligence of our audit group and confidently say that the organisation is once again fundamentally entire and intent on moving forward into a bright new future.”
And in more vernacular terms: “An exploratory Magnetic Resonance Imaging appointment identified a slow growing benign meningioma in the left frontal lobe. Due to its growth, the age of the carrier, and the proximity of the meningioma to an essential blood supply feeding the left side of the brain (and the likely results of a blockage of the blood supply) it was decided that the most appropriate action was to have it removed. This has now been done!”
Many thanks to the skills of the surgeon, his assistants and the lovely nursing staff at Liverpool Hospital, NSW who looked after me pre and post operatively.
In passing, I found it curious that, despite having private hospital insurance for just such eventualities, it appears that the only place that such complex surgery could be undertaken was in a Public Hospital. It appears that our Private Hospitals don’t invest in such equipment. What? Doesn’t fit in with their cost/benefit/profit analysis I’d suspect. Hmmm! Maybe that’s food for thought!
