Bloggers PhotoMy Biography ...

I was the son of a drover and went to work as a man
from the age of 10. So if I seem a bit coarse and uneducated, perhaps its because  i lack schooling.
The only learning I got was from life and the hard knocks. Then at 15 I was thrown from a race horse and kicked in the head. So for 15 years I was in a fog of stupidity. Which didn't help my cause but maybe did help my karmic debts?
Then i married a bad shiela another stupid move:)
and nothing worked for me those 15 years!
Bad car accident in 1975, head on, naked girl crushed to death in other car the guy had 2 broken arms 2 broken legs. Wife stealing cousin Wayne my nemesis:)
was driving my car? and stepped out and caused the accident. Wayne and I knocked out the windscreen of my car on impact. I had arm full of glass from protecting my eyes with elbow over my nose, broke my collarbone holding the front seat and put a u turn bend in the seat. Broke leg bone broke 3 toes too.
Cuz kidnapped me semiconcious from Nambour hospital, the Cast on my leg  annoyed me so I cut it off with a tin opener. Brother Mark took me to Kullinjah Station my dads property, so 4 days after the accident I tried some hard work fencing.
Pick up the right hand with the left put it on the hand drill, uses left hand to drill holes in the post.
(break)  FRIED SCONES............quick bread replacement in the 1930s
Dissolved fat (or cooking oil) ¼ inch deep in frying pan fairly hot... not burning...
Flour baking soda cream of tartar... OR cup selfraising flour drop of milk or water ...
mix fairly firm cook in the fat and turn often till cooked ....
Fried scones were eaten with an application of fat and syrup mixed together on them .....nice...
Banana fritters
Soft nanas ok too....
For one .... 1 cup s/r flour 1 small banana 1 egg one tablespoon sugar mix till firm and add banana
chunks. Cook in fat till cooked well turning often ...burnt is nice...(.these are usually soft)
Same for corn meat fritters.... 1 cup s/r flour 1 egg add onion & tomato as well for taste.......great

Jonny cakes were a drier mix... dip each one in flour and drop on the wood stove or hot shovel
turn often till cooked
Damper used sr flour milk salt .mixed till semi firm ..Scones too
Brownie was a Damper which had raisins or sultanas plus tablespoon of sugar to make it sweet.

Dead Motor Car

Busted Motor Car….Don Johnson
In order to fix your car you can try visualising a dead water pump working, spinning,
(I did) see it not leaking, see a zigzag pattern being formed over a head gasket crack to seal a gasket leak.(I did)
See your thermostat opening to allow your car to cool down the engine.(I did)
My car used to boil and I took it to a Holden dealer, after paying $104 for a quote which said bad water pump, cracked head and damaged water thermostat, I was told $1000 for parts and $1000 labour they quoted and said. I was disgusted…using visualising I kept the car driving, I would be driving and see the temp gage rising towards the red and would begin using the pictures of a working spinning water pump, a working thermostat opening, and a pattern on the head gasket forming using the above pictures in my head. Drove it 500 miles up to Mt Morgan and 500 back, plenty
of visualising to get me there and back.
Then it got hot again after I returned to Brisbane, id stopped visualising.
So I jerked out the thermostat and no more trouble….$2000 saved ???

More learning with my old car, I stopped at the supermarket and returned to drive home. It wouldn’t start, tried visualizing a white narrow strip broken in the middle,
Then saw it joining itself to make a complete strip. The bloody car started!
This strip was for me a token broken electrical connection in the ignition system, possibly the onboard computer. Since then it has died again and with my narrow image strip being reconnected the car starts. Is it a coincidence, or imagination, definitely imagination.
Thats what visualization is!
You must have faith in it working for it to have a chance of working, any doubt and you waste your time. You do create with your mind, your thoughts become reality!

The dentist drills and I don’t feel; it I put myself under hypnosis…chant it aint gonna hurt and it don’t …hurt…get my filling that wayJ
Learned to switch off pain when I was smashed up in a car accident in 75
Id say there you go bye bye and it would go…the pain of a broken leg, busted ribs,
broken collarbone and 3 broken toes…the mind and imagination is powerful !
Toothache …visualize it healing …it can work…
A 1964 year model filling fell out in 2007, went to the dentist, she said ” its infected I will put in antibiotic and a filling, but I cant promise you will keep it! ” So I had a few tooth pains but I kept insisting it would heal and it did, I visualized a blue light which can heal internally and kill infection (according to the Edgar Cayce readings, good enough for me)…more training on teeth, a wisdom filling from 1964 broke out of the tooth taking the back wall. She said its rotten, need needles to cut out the nerve and back fill it, no guarantee yet again. Complete faith in the dentist, no more problems.
So when you get a toothache, do try to heal it, have faith and it will work, rotten teeth need some help thoughJ SO YOU CREATE WITH YOUR MIND.

    Too Funny Frank, Well I will take the needle for pain anyway, might work for you Frank but when I lie there fantasizing about being in the arms of Kevin Sorbo, out of no where one of the kids will pop up saying " Have you seen my gym shorts" and THEN the pain hits, so needle it is, mommys aren't good at self hypnosis, we want to know whats going on around us every second ( or the kitchen could get burned down)Totally cool blog though Don, if it works for you thats fantastic, my little brain is too easily distracted
