Some Cool Boulevard News:
Doc John Opens a Dairy
Well after his Boxer Shorts company went down after a terrible Smear campaign ...the Doc was left pondering his future.
Since he was a baby Mostert sucking on his mother's milk he has always had dairy in his blood.
And after watching a documentary on mating cows on discovery channel he decided a dairy would be a great way to earn
a bit of extra on the side.
Also After having met and been involved with alot of cows in his lifetime it seemed like a natural transition to Dairy Farming.
He has really eased into his new found passion for Udder Squeezing and in general milking the public.
Although he has often sucked at dairy products in general he is definitely keeping a breast of the industry.
When a reporter from the Daily Tripe asked John if he thought it was wise to get involved at such a late stage in his career
he replied "Udder Know"
He did also added though that the competition is cheesed off at his recent growth.... although he plans to have the growth removed at a later date.
Anyway we wish Doc John's Dairy all the success in the future.

Big G joins a new band
Other exciting news was Graeme Abbott had to shed a bit of skin after he joined a Jewish Worship Band.
He has really enjoyed the new exposure that he has received.....
and in his own words he said...."this band is a cut above the rest"
He promised it wouldn't interfere with his BB commitments even if he does have a problem with commitment.
He wasn't able to make the gig on Sunday at Justwine due to a stomach problem which only Graeme knows the finer details thereof.
Anyway Debbie Pryor came in and did a sterling job........It was great to have the Acoustic band up and running again....even if it was at the expense of Graeme who was down and running.

Graham Beyer and Re-hab
He is Now out from re-hab but has been drinking on the sly and he has started smoking again.
He said re-hab has been tough on him and the drinking and smoking have definitely helped him over this stressful period.
We hope to have him back to full health and his car firing on all cylinders soon.

Greg twists his leg:
Greg 'Turkey Neck' Smith as he likes to be called is limping again.
He twisted his leg while listening to the new single by Limp Biskuit.
While headbanging he got his Turkey neck in a knot, heard a loud cracking sound and then did a 180 degree involuntary turn while hitting the canvass only to look up and see two left feet staring back at him.
After that he walked around in circles for days wondering why he hasn't been going anywhere.
A quick visit to a Physiotherapist and a twist to the right was all that was needed...or so he thought..... because now he has a right foot back..... but unfortunately they twisted the left foot right and not the twisted right foot left which has left him with a left foot that now points right and a right foot that now points left.
I guess this also explains why he's been going backwards these days.
Anyway it is rather complicated and we do hope he gets this sorted out as soon as possible.

Quote of the month:
If it's broken....... then try to fix it.

Assumption of the month:
Don't assume anything is broken unless you know how to fix it.
