   May 27 marks the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum in which more than 90 per cent of Austra-
   lians voted to remove clauses from the Australian Constitution which discriminated against Indige-
   nous Australians. June 3 marks the anniversary of the High Court's judgment in the 1992 Mabo

   peoples as the original inhabitants of the continent and overturned the myth of terra nullius – the
   belief that the continent was an empty, un-owned land before the arrival of Europeans in 1788.

                                         Working people often ask retired people what do they do to
                                         make their days interesting. Well for example the other day my
                                         wife and I went into town. We went into a shop. When we
                                         came out a cop was writing a parking ticket. We went up to him
                                         and said ‘Come on man, how about giving a senior a break?’. He
                                         ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a jerk.
Ingredients                              He glared at me and starting writing another ticket. So my wife
                                         called him a nutcase. The officer finished writing the two tickets

                                         and starting writing a third ticket. This went for about 20 min-
