Night of the goat

I was going to call it , year of the goat, but well, it simply isn’t the year of the goat. So I named it night of the goat. Aparently some think thought of Satan. I was surprised by this. Across the road from where I now live is the Mui Huong Goat Meat Restaurant . . . → Read More: Night of the goat


I have been enjoying U-Tube a fair bit recently as much of my music is obscure and I can find a little over half of it on the internet. This one is not from a CD I own, but I have three of their CDs.

daylight savings madness

Daylight savings happened. But not as smoothly as one might have expected. The VCR and Windows OS clocks changed automatically over night. The mobile phone and apple OS clocks changed automatically at midday the next day. Windows and Macosx are running on the same computer. The clock in the bedroom was updated manually. But then . . . → Read More: daylight savings madness


Well I have my first real Karaoke experience with me singing songs. I was quite please with my singing, it is as good as it has been since my voice broke and I sang in the Coretto at school in most of the major protestant churches in Melbourne.

bad driving

This morning I pulled out onto South Dowling Street, a ute (ao75ng) was approaching along south dowling with it’s left indicator on. So I pulled out in front of it. Many cars turn left at that point. The male driver came up on my left and glared at me, and then pulled in front of . . . → Read More: bad driving

Bucket of Meterology

According to the BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) we have had 0.6mm of rain since 9AM yesterday. But according to another BOM (Bucket of Meteorology, conveniently located on the north balcony) we had about 1.5 to 2.0 cm of rain.

In Your Face

Some of the mob from the SPB decided to have a show of portraits. They shot each other because it put them on both sides of the camera. It was a good night and there is a documentary movie that was shown on the night. Even better still it was held about 200 meters from . . . → Read More: In Your Face
