A lovely stroll around Palmerville Heritage Park (known in my family simply as Landcare) on Sunday resulted in a handful of suitably autumnal pics. For more, check out my photostream.

iTunes Radio

If I only listen to the "1984" station, it's pretty good. A little sample below, with "Together In Electric Dreams" playing right now :)


Well it's taken me a long time, but I finally post-processed my favourite photos from my trip to Mogo Zoo while down the coast last December.

My coast garden coming to life during last weekend's visit.

Amazing how only a couple of days away can feel like a week when you really need it :)

Phew! Without that leadership spill, the mainstream media might have had to ask some tough questions of themselves, and whether they provide any value to society. Now they get to engage in a round of self-congratulatory "I told you so!"s, and re-focus their trivia detectors on something else, to avoid at all costs actually educating the broader public, or helping to raise the level of political discourse. I'd love to think that tomorrow will begin with tough questions being asked about the lack of policy detail in key areas from the LNP, or any kind of considered analysis of party positions really, but that seems far too much to hope for...

Brighter at night

While I was up in Forster, I took a handful of starry photos. These two variations on a theme worked the best:

Not really, but I have to renew interest in this much neglected blog somehow...

Just finished picking up and placing back in order every one of my TV show DVDs (all 300-odd of them), as the shelf they were on fell over, scattering them across the whole lounge room, thankfully missing my brand new housemates, and seemingly leaving no damage to the discs or cases themselves. Very lucky escape all round, and an impressive demo of DVD resilience!

That's what passes for excitement in my life, happy for it to remain a rarity :)

June stats

Halfway through my year off already!

Yesterday sadly broke my 132 day walking streak, but today I jumped right back on the horse (or sneakers, as it were).

Distance walked - 65km
Drawings - 12
Books read - 6
DVDs watched - 18

The shift from books to DVDs was largely due to the bathroom construction at the reading room end of my house for much of the month, as well as my CFS flaring the past couple of weeks, making concentration difficult.
