Mouthy Broadcast maybe the podcast for you Do you like listening to podcasts? I spend quite a few hours every week as I’m walking around a lake or driving to …
Exactly my friends, when you’re at an all-day work meeting with guests and someone brings out cakes and biscuits, guess what? They’re calorie-free. No calories!
The ACT Government has obliged shopping centre supermarkets to attach locks and chains to shopping trolleys in an effort to prevent people from leaving trolleys in inappropriate areas like sidewalks …
And no, I’m not talking about shopping trolleys. The weather in Canberra today was surprisingly good. It wasn’t cold and it wasn’t too warm. It was overcast with a hint …
As I walked around Lake Ginninderra this morning I pondered a thought about a short story I thought I might write.
From time to time I mentally jot down ideas for works of fiction. I’ve never written a short story before but I follow enough blogs to admire people who can and do write short works of fiction. Whether I can or not is another thing altogether. I’ve never thought of myself as a good writer. I think I do a satisfactory job for my work, but creative writing is not something I feel comfortable with.
Crushing salmonellosis is nothing for Canberra to be proud of but I was surprised when I looked at the figures today for salmonellosis notifications per 100,000 population by state and territory in Australia.
If you’d asked me before I moved to Canberra nearly ten years ago what I thought about public art. I’d have said, “…it’s a bloody waste of taxpayers’ money!”
I had no time for art in any form. I’d never really been interested in it.
I have no education in art and I’ve never read anything about art. I’ve certainly not picked up a book about art.
Hip hip hooray. I always feel a bit sad when Summer ends, especially in Canberra, it means any possibility of warmth and even a little humidity is effectively gone. The start of the footy season proper is a good day to take my mind off the discomfort of dry air.
Now when I refer to football, I’m referring to rugby league. The greatest game of all. Sure, we’ve had some preseason games, there’s been the big match between the Australian Indigenous team and the rest, there’s been the Nines and there has been the little series in the UK when our top teams from the last season get a little match fitness playing the English during the peak of their season.
So after a big day of food on Saturday (go back to lunch and dinner), Mum and Dad cooked a huge breakfast for me and the girls.
Mum and Dad both love cooking and they love sharing how much they love their kids and grandkids by cooking large quantities of food 😃
My youngest daughter will soon turn 16. We went out for dinner, celebrated over steaks and then had some cake.
