Victory on Cocos Ridge

A Cocos can be defeated. Not without one hell of a struggle though apparently. Looks like Guadal Canal. Next the Marines will take the pencil pines – with air support. And the other Cocoses. By RubyRuby, Alexander Heights.cocos

    The famous image of the soldiers raising the American flag at Iwo Jima was in fact inspired by TLA’s ancestors pulling down cocos palms across Perth during the inter-war period. True story

    If I were a cynical person, I might ask whether Twiggy Forrest’s massive bequest this week was at all influenced by the fact that Andrew Burrell’s unauthorised biography is published in a couple of weeks. The book will apparently highlight Twiggy’s ‘unapologetically mercenary manner and motivation – the good, the bad and the ugly.’

    Meh. I’d still rather a live Cocos than a bit of dead ground. I’ve a few myself; messy bastard things they are but I’ll put money on them still being around when global warming delivers Dubai-like aridity…
