Saved at the Bull Fight

John Hinwood is 60. Big deal. I mean why would we celebrate that when we know he'll live to at least 160? Here is a bloke who defies all the rules.

He's the bloke who lost an index finger and turned that hand into the strongest ever known in chiropractic. I've been treated by that hand and he knows how to inflict pain. Ask him how he's reduced the strongest football players to wimpering, simpering babies.

My undying memory of John Hinwood is of the first time we met. In 1973 Elisabeth (my wife) and I were traveling in Latin America and we were at a bullfight in Bogota, Colombia. We were spellbound by the amount of wine that the spectators were drinking and the increasingly agro mood of the crowd made us a little uneasy. For those that don't know, Colombia is one of the most violent countries in the world and it is very easy to feel uneasy there. After a bull jumped into the crowd, yes, that's right, it jumped over the barrier and into the crowd an extremely unusual occurrence, but what one might expect in Colombia, the crowd went even wilder. All of a sudden a Colombian woman near us passed out but her companions didn't seem to care too much. A couple with Australian accents had seen what had happened and rushed to her aid. John grabbed a policeman's baton from its holster and held up the lady's head so that she wouldn't choke on her own vomit. He had rightly guessed that she had had a heart attack, but unbeknown to us John had committed the cardinal Colombian sin. He hadn't shown sufficient respect to the Colombian cop who began to draw his gun and put this impertinent gringo back in his place. John however in typical Aussie style, told him to piss off' because the woman was dying and needed all the help she could get. The policeman got the message even though it was delivered in English not Spanish, it was a MIRACLE.

That was John at his best – decisive, fearless and caring. And the good news is here, we are celebrating his 60th birthday and we've got another 100 years of that to come from him.
