NRL getting it right online

NRL getting it right online
Last night I signed up for NRL Live — and it feels like they’ve finally entered the 21st century. I wrote about this a couple of years ago now, wondering why we didn’t have this system already, and now finally we do! For the first time ever, I was able to — in the comfort ...

Tonight’s Q&A on Education

Well… that was an experience I’m still winding down from. Because of my complete lack of bedroom TV reception I watched the News 24 web stream, and realised halfway through that it was about 2-minutes behind the Twitter feed! No matter… there wasn’t much too it really. Not particularly substantial, really. Christopher Pyne was as ...

Assignments…

Helped Will finish a school assignment today. I took him up to my school where I had some things to finish, and he could get some quiet time. Didn’t help that much as leave him with a computer and there’s distractions galore… but he got the work done. He did it in Google Drive — ...

Coonabarabran Show 2013

¬†Alex checks out the bird life at the show… The whole family went out to the Coona Show today… and while it was hot and a little bit crazy, it was all good fun, and the boys had a good time, which is the main thing. There’s animals, rides, food, exhibitions of art and craft ...

Winners and losers

This whole drugs in sport thing just got a little more nuts, with the Cronulla Sharks suspending their coach and sacking four officials, two days before their first game. No idea if player suspensions will follow, but it seems likely. I didn’t make the Google Teacher Academy cut at all, and neither did most people ...

NRL season kick off

For the first time ever that I can think of, the new season started on a Thursday night, and I decided to tune in. Souths vs Roosters, big return of Sonny Bill Williams, big things expected from Souths star line-up. And well, Souths certainly delivered! 28-10, big result, easy victory for Souths. Roosters pretty disappointing, ...

Community minded

Did a number of community minded things today: went to a seminar on helping children recover from trauma after bushfires and other trauma. Seems a necessary thing, good advice to hear. I went to our sons’ parent/teacher night and learned a lot, and I’m glad to say, taught them a lot two. Hopefully doing some ...

Batman and political bickering

A silly day of news, with UK police having someone brought in by Batman, followed by worldwide media obsession until the guy was unmasked by the end of the day. Imagine how Bruce Wayne would have fared with that attention? And really, showing how easy it is to provoke media obsession should probably get this ...

#QandA and political theatre

So another Monday night and another Q & A torrent of chatter on Twitter. I have watched it from time to time but usually I just don’t both — it’s televised political theatre, it’s the Crossfire debacle that Jon Stewart complained about years ago, the competition where everyone yells the loudest, even on Twitter. But ...

Just because…

Lachie looked like he was having so much fun doing this, just because he felt like it! This is why we have camera phones, you know? Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...
