Dreams To Reality

I’ve got half a mind to buy that 1970s Datsun truck for sale down the road. I know it’s rusty as heck and possibly good for no more than parts, but it’s precisely the car I wanted when I was a kid. I had a little collectable toy that looked just like this one, and …

Give ’em a Break

That poor family down the road – they’ve really been through the wringer lately. Six months ago, their back unit burnt down. A couple of months after that, the whole family came down with the flu. Then, just last week, they had a leak in their gas system and their eight year-old got carbon monoxide …

Okay, I leave Melbourne for…what, five years? Just over five years. It’s not that long in the grand scheme of things, but I come back from my job in the Malaysian office and the city has gone nuts. There’s cults and weird clubs everywhere, about a zillion odd attractions (Lemur Sanctuary sounds cool though), there …

Wholesome Hairdressing

You know, I think I actually enjoyed that episode of Her-Bla. I know it can be preachy at times, but I’ve stuck with the series because the animation is very fluid and I think the show has some potential. I have no problem with a show for kids having moral messages, because I grew up …

My Signature Fade

My goodness, the Saturday edition of the local newspaper ‘Trumpeting Moon’ really takes a dive. And on a day when lots of people have time to be reading the paper over their morning cafe bagel, too! This needs to change or I’m switching to the Page. At least it’s more honest. The quiz was either …
