For more than 12 years, it has been customary for me to spend the Easter break camping with family and friends along the Great Ocean Road at Cumberland River. It has also been normal for me to take along my Mazda MX-5 to enjoy some spirited drives between Lorne and...

Go Tigers!

I am trying to multi-task at the moment. I am watching football on the television whilst trying to write. My team, the Richmond Tigers, are playing the Port Adelaide Power in Adelaide, and the Power is leading in the second quarter. They appear to be getting on top of the...

Absent movie memories

I have recently written about some of my favourite memorable movies, but there are some movies that I don't have any memories of because I have never seen them. For example, I have never seen any of the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or Raiders of the Lost Ark...

As I sat down to write tonight, I was interrupted several times by various instant messages that stole my attention away from the task at hand. Messenger, Whatsapp, Microsoft Teams, Zoom Chat, LinkedIn, and SMS messages are just some of the instant message apps that I would use daily.

Owning a fun convertible sports car is often the dream of many people, and it is not as hard to achieve as you might think. Many of those dreams started with recollections of the British and European sports cars of the '60s and '70s, like the MGB, Lotus Elan and...

Winners are grinners!

Making their mark

I finished watching the seven-part Prime Video series "Making Their Mark" today. It was a documentary following players, coaches, and club administrators from the Australian Football League (AFL), during the pandemic interrupted 2020. I must have got a little bit of dust in my eye whilst watching the last episode,...

Automated Quick Steps

I recently wrote about using Quick Steps in Microsoft Outlook to do simple tasks in my quest to keep my email inbox empty. But my efforts to maintain my 'Inbox Zero' status doesn't end there. To complement these Quick Steps, I have also implemented some simple workflow automations with...
