Like most people, the pandemic has slowly been receding out of my memory in the past few months. But here I am now, another covid statistic. Yes, I tested positive this week. After getting through a couple of horror nights and the beast settled down a bit, I couldn’t help looking up at the current situation with the virus that rocked the world these last couple of years and a bit. I must confess I was bit shocked with what I found out, the numbers so high I reckon if they occurred in 2020 or 2021, we would have been… Read more »

How about the most colourful election campaign in history

Some punters reckon this Saturday’s federal election campaign has been the most boring in living memory. And there’s some truth in that, as you would expect.

Thumbs up for back to basics approach of new mayor

Labor shortages an opportunity to tick some boxes

Apparently there’s a shortage of Santa helpers this Christmas. No doubt many people my age would have patted their well rounded belly and thought, well, I have the right body shape, maybe I should give it a go. All in the line of duty, of course. To help the countryRead more »

Golf and haircut can wait, but not track shoes

Yes, yes, get a haircut, old boy. Well, yes, and I don’t know about you, but going to the barber or the hairdresser is not the biggest priority around here. Sure, the hair needs cutting, but there are more important things in life. Such as the track shoes which haveRead more »
