I’m thinking of getting FreeView – lots of shiny new TV channels…. I should join a gym instead, but sod it, why the hell not ?!
I got this on email recently – it’s a nostalgia fest for an Australian childhood. I grew up in the UK & US and it all sounds warm and familar to me….what do you think !?
I’m talking about hide and seek in the park. The corner milk bar, hopscotch, Billy carts, cricket in front of the garbage bin, skipping, handstands, footy on the best lawn in the street, British bulldog 1-2-3, go home stay home, slip’n'slide, the trampoline with water on it, hula hoops, pogo sticks, stepping in enormous puddles, mud pies and building dams in the gutter. The smell of the sun and fresh cut grass.
While travelling in India, I took a jeep up the Rohtang Pass in the Himalayas. It was a spectacular ride along the 3rd highest motorable road in the world. The road snakes up the steep mountainside with sheer drops and hair-pin bends a plenty. Apparently, people are killed every year on this road, mainly men driving too fast I was told !

In Goa we took to the back roads on motorbikes and I couldn’t resist this photo. The roadside shack lists the following digital service:

I couldn’t even detect a phone line…. ;o)
Don’t you just hate pop-ups….grrrrr ! Quietly surfing aound online and these flipping new windows keep popping up with all kinds of adverts and crap you don’t want on them.
Maybe time to install a pop-up killer…..
I spent most of last year living in Oz and turned my hand to the local cuisine. One of my specialities was the traditional Aussie meat pie… very tasty ! For anyone interested, here’s the recipe.
Disaster ! We have lost the World Marbles Championships to Germany….. how will we ever cope ! Apparently the UK team drank too much beer and lost the plot !
70s naffness makes a comeback ! Remember Blue Nun, Liebfraumilch, Parker Knoll furniture and, gasp, even hostess trolleys….well apparently they are all coming back with a vengance ! We just can’t shake that decade from our hearts !
Before the invasion of Iraq there was a joke going around: when the Americans get to Baghdad do they turn left to Syria or right to Iran ?
When I popped into the newsagent at lunch today I saw this Guardian headline: Bush vetoes Syria war plan.
Have the occupants of the White House gone totally mad ?
Contrary to popular belief, programmers more frequently resemble artists than scientists….hmmm ? Find out more here
