Uncle Ted does his thing in 1987.

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

ANZAC is the abbreviation of ‘The Australian and New Zealand Army Coy’, first named at Gallipoli in WWI.

Anzac Day is this Sunday.

This is the day each year when we honour the Australian and New Zealand diggers (soldiers) who died in that battle in Gallipoli Turkey, part of WWI.

And we honour those who survived. And we honour all our great soldiers dead and alive since that time.

I am very anti-war and a pacifist. Sometimes war is necessary.

Landing at Anzac Cove – TURKEY
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gallipoli campaign
Not to be confused with Landing at Suvla Bay.
The landing at Anzac Cove on Sunday, 25 April 1915, also known as the landing at Gaba Tepe, and to the Turks as the Arıburnu Battle, was part of the amphibious invasion of the Gallipoli Peninsula by the forces of the British Empire, which began the land phase of the Gallipoli Campaign of the First World War.

The assault troops, mostly from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), landed at night on the western (Aegean Sea) side of the peninsula. They were put ashore one mile (1.6 km) north of their intended landing beach. In the darkness, the assault formations became mixed up, but the troops gradually made their way inland, under increasing opposition from the Ottoman Turkish defenders. Not long after coming ashore the ANZAC plans were discarded, and the companies and battalions were thrown into battle piece-meal, and received mixed orders. Some advanced to their designated objectives while others were diverted to other areas, then ordered to dig in along defensive ridge lines.

Although they failed to achieve their objectives, by nightfall the ANZACs had formed a beachhead, albeit much smaller than intended. In places they were clinging onto cliff faces with no organised defence system. Their precarious position convinced both divisional commanders to ask for an evacuation, but after taking advice from the Royal Navy about how practicable that would be, the army commander decided they would stay. The exact number of the day’s casualties is not known. The ANZACs had landed two divisions but over two thousand of their men had been killed or wounded, together with at least a similar number of Turkish casualties.

Since 1916 the anniversary of the landings on 25 April has been commemorated as Anzac Day, becoming one of the most important national celebrations in Australia and New Zealand. The anniversary is also commemorated in Turkey and the United Kingdom.

Dishonest John Simon – John Simon owner of Open Home Online in Bellingen, Mid-North Coast, New South Wales, Australia. John Simon of Open Home Online stole a large sales commission when working for Bellingen Real Estate agent Peter Stone of Real Estate of Distinction and John Simon was forced to pay Peter Stone $86,000 by Court Order.

I’ve known John Simon for ten years since he arrived in Bellingen, Mid-North Coast, New South Wales, Australia.

I used to think John Simon was a good guy but lately he’s really lost the plot.

There are those in the Bellingen community who believe that John Simon has been “Bad John Simon” or “Dishonest and Deceptive John Simon” or “Arrogant John Simon” for a long time.

Take for example Peter Stone owner of Real Estate of Distiction, a local real estate agent.

Around the Courts:

PRESS  RELEASE

On 11 November 2014, the proceedings in the Coffs Harbour District Court between Real Estate of Distinction and John Simon, both from Bellingen NSW, settled out of Court.

The proceedings were brought by Peter Stone, principal of Real Estate of Distinction (REOD), in February 2014.  The claim was for $106,500 being 100% of a commission that REOD claimed it was entitled to from the sale of 4 Gilwinga Drive, Bayview in Sydney.

REOD claimed while an agent of REOD, Mr. Simon negotiated the sale of the property to a purchaser that first visited the property during a period that REOD was appointed by the vendor to sell the property.

The claim was based on the allegation that Mr. Simon secured the sale while agent of REOD but negotiated a better commission for the sale of the property through another Bellingen agency.  The claim alleged Mr. Simon was entitled to 25% of the commission through REOD but instead he arranged to receive 80% of it from the other agency, then terminated his relationship with REOD, then caused the sale of the property to occur for $4.825 million through the other agency.

Mr. Simon received a commission of $77,200 plus GST for arranging the sale through the second agency, significantly more than he was entitled to receive from REOD.

The case settled out of Court on the second day of the hearing.  Mr. Simon paid REOD $60,000 which was c.77% of the amount Mr. Simon received.  Mr. Simon also paid REOD 50% of its legal costs in the proceedings.  In total, Mr. Simon paid REOD approximately $86,000 to settle REOD’s claims plus had to pay his own costs of defending the proceedings.

The writer of this site Donald Elley of Bellingen. I don’t like Bellingen real estate agents or anyone else doing the wrong thing in our small community of Bellingen. John Simon should leave Bellingen to live in a big city like Melbourne or Sydney, or preferably another place in a far away country like the USA where John Simon’s wife, Dr Alayne Simon, who practices as a GP in Bellingen, is from, where John Simon can do Bad John things and perhaps get away with them..

I’ve been told that John Simon’s father paid the $86,000 the New South Wales Court ordered John Simon pay Peter Stone.
