Werribee Park Mansion

After my previous attempt to visit Werribee Park Mansion was cut short by the need to rescue my Nieces from their broken dads car by the side of the Tullamarine freeway, I had long harboured a desire to get back there to finish my visit.

But where we live True North and Magnetic North are not the . . . → Read More: Magentic North Versus True North

This Boston Bomber, not the other one

Suddenly my photo if a Boston Bomber (Otherwise known as the Douglas A-20), located in Point Cook, is receiving lots of search engine inspired hits, mostly from bing. Notably google seems to be able to tell the difference, none from google. I guess that this bomber was instrumental in many more deaths, but . . . → Read More: This Boston Bomber, not the other one
