2008 trip day 6 – Around in A circle to Teed Heads

I started in the morning in Potsville and finished it in Collongatta.

The balcony on the first floor in the far corners where about ten of us spent the previous night playing and singing jazz and old rock songs.

I headed inland to Murwillumbar where I stopped for breakfast at what I am . . . → Read More: 2008 trip day 6 – Around in A circle to Teed Heads

2008 trip day 5 – A great Big Loop

I started on a great loop around the rim. My intention was to get to and stay the night in Byron Bay, because I still have never stayed there the night. However, it turned out to be much further than I though and I did not have the stamina at the end of the day . . . → Read More: 2008 trip day 5 – A great Big Loop

2008 trip day 4 – casino bound

I start the day in Coffs Harbour.

Unfortunately I did not get the message about my grand aunt’s funeral until late in the night. The funeral was the next day at 10AM. As I had not paid, I could not check out before 7AM. Three hours was not enough to make it to Brisbane. . . . → Read More: 2008 trip day 4 – casino bound

2008 trip day 3 – back to the coast

Heading out from Uralla, I stopped in Armidale for a good breakfast before heading back to the coast. Again a day of visiting national parks.

Continuing along the road, I headed in to a lookout, and stopped at the Dutton . . . → Read More: 2008 trip day 3 – back to the coast

2008 trip day 1 – leaving sydney

I headed north from Sydney without much of a plan. I had been trying to organise to go to my great aunty’s funeral in Brisbane. But apart from that, there was no plan. I had a vague idea of visiting Byron Bay and maybe getting to the Sunshine coast. For something different, I headed up . . . → Read More: 2008 trip day 1 – leaving sydney

no clothes

The BBC published this article – Europe delays airport X-ray eye. I think that the EU politicians have a point and am surprised it has been allowed in the prudish USA. Also, if it does use X-rays, aren’t they dangerous? I wonder what technology they do use. I did not bother to search the internet . . . → Read More: no clothes

Masters and Slaves

slaves

In Electrical and Electronic engineering the term master and slave is often used in conjunction with circuit design. It is a favourite design pattern, a master, say a computer, controls a bunch of slaves, say a bunch of monitoring devices. The master might poll each device in turn and the slaves . . . → Read More: Masters and Slaves

more than 125 people were murdered to take this photo

I have always wondered about the distinctions for murder. But war is just the most effective method of mass murder. More than 125 men were killed in the making of the photo in my grandfathers photo album, but only 125 men are in it. Who know how many plants and animals were killed on the . . . → Read More: more than 125 people were murdered to take this photo

Dubbo and Yass

People in Sydney react very strangely when I talk about the towns of Dubbo and Yass. I wonder why. Dubbo gets a much bigger response. It is on no….

On a similar vane, apparently Broken Hill is a very suitable place and Bourke is not.
