OK, girls and boys, Valentine’s Day is just four days away and the pressure’s on. Whether it’s for the first or 50th time, the conundrum remains the same: what will I buy for that special person in my life, the love of my life. So, start thinking, because there’s not much time between now and Friday, February 14, Valentine’s Day. Will you give your Valentine a dozen red roses and a box of chocolates or is a romantic dinner for two on the cards for you and her or him. The worse you can do is do nothing, and in… Read more »

What if it never rains again and other silly claims

I remember the words well: “If it rains again.’’ They were said by a politician during an interview late last year and I recalled them today as I sat by my window watching the rain tumble down in Campbelltown. I won’t embarrass them by naming them, but those four little words reminded me of a trend last year for some people and groups to make claims that were simply ridiculous. There was this tendency to hyperbole, and what was really disconcerting was that some of it was about immutable stuff like rain. The Bureau of Meteorology merely stuffed up when… Read more »

Just about had enough of 2019, so bring on 2020

Just about had enough of 2019, so bring on 2020

Bushfires burning for weeks, drought, water restrictions; 2019 is certainly going to be a memorable year for all sorts of reasons. We also voted twice during the year to elect – for better or worse – new governments in NSW and Canberra. In the state, by the time the Liberal National coalition government next faces the voters, it will have been in power for 12 years. Not much difference in Canberra, where the current government will be almost 10 years old at the next election in 2022. It may be time for a change, but who can tell these days…. Read more »

The parade that stops our town

A spoof logo of this year’s Fisher’s Ghost festival doing the rounds landed in the messages box of my phone yesterday. It was mildly amusing but we won’t be publishing it here because it does not deserve to be exposed to a wider audience. But enough of this silliness andRead more »

Just don’t know anyone who would kill for veggies

Asparagus, broccoli, carrots, dill, eggplant, green beans, leeks, onions, potatoes, rhubarb, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini. There you go, there’s an edible plant for just about every letter of the alphabet. Not that it makes it any easier to eat some of them – OK, you’re right, any of them. Most humansRead more »

Can you cheat on the footy team you love?

Deciding how to approach footy finals when you’re team’s gone must be one of life’s little mysteries. It’s becoming increasingly important, according to footy journalists anyway, to choose a team if yours is out of contention.
