Like the weather hasn’t been weird enough…

After all the hot weather, then the fires, today and tonight there have been loads of storms. All over the state really, but it poured rain at about 6.30pm, then about 10 the lightning hit, and more rain. Honestly, it’s a lot of rain so it should ease things, but it’s a lot of lightning ...

Back home tonight

Spent too much of the day at the hospital with Will — he’s fine, just regular check ups and medication pickups that took too long — then six hours driving back home. Home, glad to be, too tired for much else! -31.274704149.281314Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Gangster Squad — old school adventure

Gangster Squad -- old school adventure
Went out to see Gangster Squad tonight. I’d thought the name was kind of off putting beforehand, but it suits the movie well. It’s a 1940s gangster movie, with some basis in reality (but loads of fiction as well) that is quite entertaining, but also very deliberately old fashioned. I’m finding a lot of post ...

The big duck!

Powerhouse Museum Jan 2013, a photo by StephenATurner on Flickr. I must admit I don’t know the background to this thing, but we managed to see it before it’s removed next week. Funny how every pic of it looks grey while the duck retains its bright yellow though! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

But it wasn’t just Wallace & Gromit we saw, there was also a Wiggles history exhibition, a display of cars and trains (world of transport) and we even managed to see the big Duck at Darling Harbour!

Google Apps Summit Day 2

Me and some of the Yammer/DEC folks today Another excellent day at Burwood for the Google Apps summit. Today I was extremely glad to be at MLC, with their luxurious airconditioning… … Because outside it reached 44.7 degrees Celsius! It was officially the hottest day on record for Sydney. Fortunately, it was not a disaster for ...

Day 1 Google Apps summit

Day 1 Google Apps summit
Headed out bright and very early to the Google Apps summit being held at MLC school in Burwood. Could only gawk at how modern and wealthy the school grounds were, but that wasn’t the point of the day. The point was that this was a big event being held in aid of the whole suite ...

Off to Sydney for many reasons

Off to Sydney again today, for two different reasons. I’m at the Google Apps Summit at MLC in Burwood tomorrow and Friday, then taking Will to more Doctors appointments on Monday. In between we’re going to the Wallace & Gromit invention show at the Powerhouse Museum on Saturday… And whatever else we can manage 🙂 ...

Getting preoccupied with the wrong things

Getting preoccupied with the wrong things
I have a post on iPad music apps I keep wanting to finish, not to mention that TAFE assignment, but right now all I can think about is the fire situation at home. Fires have been around Coonabarabran since Sunday, and while things should be okay for the town (where I am) it’s far from ...
