HELP ME TO SUPPORT THE PARALYMPIC ATHLETES

PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !


Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !


London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !


Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.


Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.


SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.


Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .


Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .


NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .



Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .


You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

#O W S : Bloomberg reads Constitution ?

“ O W S can stay indefinitely “! Who leaned on Bloomberg ? Has this guys minions read the US Constitution ? Are the “ Class Actions “ causing the Mayor indigestion ? Gifts from JP Morgan to the “ Police Foundation “ causing harsh questions to be asked ? Is the NYPD overtime Bill causing concern ?

Well I can’t claim any credit BUT Mayor Bloomberg has seen the writing on the Wall ( Not the face book wall ) and is now looking at his options which are limited since the whole World now knows about the antics of the likes of Assistant Police Lieutenant Anthony Bologna and others of his Ilk . A new approach to the #O S W movement will pay dividends since the WHOLE WORLD will have similar actions on the 15th October this year !

Media must be drooling since there is a “ #Occupy…. “ coming to their neighbourhood ! NO scrambling for second hand sources anymore , the real deal ! FM4 the English speaking branch of the Austrian National Broadcaster reported again this morning and announced that #Occupy Austria is alive and planning action in many cities here on the 15th October . Since the first week Stewart Freeman and his colleagues have been keeping me abreast of the #O W S happenings in addition to the articles you will see listed below . Some of the comments there leave you wondering if this Action could be “ Hijacked “ by unruly elements !

To #O W S , I say whilst you behave with dignity and stay within the Law , I like the majority of thinking people will support you , since you are highlighting the concerns of 99% of the population !

Allow “ Radicals and Troublemakers ” to join your marches then you will lose “ Goodwill ” rapidly !

Self Policing will need to be considered as a HIGH PRIORITY since the Authorities are looking for repeats of what happened in London when the Students marched to protest the Grossly unfair hike in University Fees ! There the marches started peacefully and as dusk came so out came the “ trouble makers “ and then the Police moved into action .

The headlines next day were about “ Prince Charles’s” car being attacked , not about the injustices levied on the Uni students and their families , nearly all of whom struggle to stay afloat in the present economic climate ! Media look for sensationalism so now that #O W S is an established entity they will seek colour for the additional articles they publish and “ wrongdoing ” will well serve their purposes !
