Father’s Day

I had a great day yesterday.  I was given some shirts, a diary, Turkish delight and musk lollies.  After breakfast we went to Temora, home of the famous Temora Aviation Museum.  Temora has the philosophy that all its exhibits must be not only capable of flying but are flown regularly.  They have approx 6 flying days a […]

Telecommunications is a wonderful thing

Ok as you saw we had “issues” with our phone. Yesterday morning the repairman came and climbed up the pole at the back of the house (yep pole, yep backyard, Canberra is a strange place) and tested the line. Well needless to say it was BAD, so 4 or 5 poles later he found the […]

Faulty Phone

For the last few weeks the home phone has been incredibly noisy. I believe it is something to do with all the wind and rain, as we have an aerial lead in line to the house. I have looked at the cabling under the house (which is not very pretty) and determined that it is […]

Evacuated – 4:15 am

Ok we had a rude awakening this morning as a way too loud policeman was bashing on our door. Seems that some nutter had stolen a tradesman’s van, taken some tools and then dumped it in the park over the road.  They then decided to torch it. The fire brigade got there about 2:30 and […]

Dani’s Shoulder

Dani went into hospital last Tuesday to have her right shoulder operated on.  The doctors diagnoses Bersitius a while back but were not keen to refer her to a surgeon.  However after 18 months since the incident  that caused the problem and the shoulder only getting worse, we insisted on the referal. So the operation […]

Well I am still not well.  I am still getting headaches most days. My neurologist has given me a different set of tablets and at least they don’t effect my mood but they are not effecting my headaches either. So I have decided to attach this problem on several fronts.  I have found a Chinese […]

Still here – Honest

Sorry for the lack of posts this year. Due to known issues and usual winter colds and flu’s I have been offline more than online. Recently we moved our family to a new house and are still unpacking boxes and sorting out rooms.  During the move our phone company (who is also our ISP provider) […]

Creative Prose

My son’s (8 years old) homework includes the standard question “Make a sentence that includes your spelling words”.  So her are a few from his latest collection: A shield get(s) battered and dented, a sword gets blood on it, the dark side is doomed. Fourth does not get on the podium. Why do I have […]
