Sakura Matsuri

Normally Keat and I meet to watch some Chinese soapies, but as spring is upon us I suggested to head out for a trip. Little did I realise when I suggested Keat pick a place, that I would be driving half way across the state. So with a late start we headed off to my . . . → Read More: Sakura Matsuri

LOS = Loss of Signal

In the industry I work in LOS means loss of signal, though strangely Wikipedia does not understand this.

Los may refer to:

where did all the people go?

manual exchange

I am reminded of the saying, lies, damn lies and statistics. Here is a quote that is simply very funny.

Well today I was on Radio National on the Bush Telegraph radio show. It is an hour long show and I was second last with Fiona Hooton from Picture Australia.

It was quite an interesting event. Fiona contacted me a few weeks ago about it. Last Friday a woman from the show called and . . . → Read More: Bush Telegraph and Picutre Australia

for progress there has to be change

This dream occurred last night. Again it was very vivid, in colour and disjointed. I do not remember most of the imagery. Here are the key bits I remembered:

I am standing beside my car. A certain person (不噁林大客流量一) is putting luggage in the blue bags people use to save plastic bags, into the back . . . → Read More: for progress there has to be change

Mahratta House & garden open day

I headed off to this Art Deco house. The open day was held by the Historic Houses Trust. I have to say, that the garden was good and the house somewhat of a disappointment in that it was very simple. I expected extravagance for this era.

How to vote

Max ran for the Marrickville council and looks like he has won a seat. So I helped out by handing out how to vote cards. This is the first time I have had any involvement in an election to it was a new and novel experience. I had a good chat with the various people . . . → Read More: How to vote

Harassing James

One thing I have noticed in wandering around Sydney is that the security people take a dislike to James. If I wander off on my own, I am fine and allowed to take photos. But as soon as James arrives, a security guard will start asking questions and if possible try to make us go . . . → Read More: Harassing James
