Winter warmth

It's been six month's since I had the reverse-cycle air-conditioner fitted throughout the house. I wanted to install it before the summer to be comfortable when the sweltering days came. It turned out that we had little, if no, stinking hot days over the summer, and six months later, my...

It shouldn't leak
It shouldn't leak

It is a sad reality for owners of early-model soft-top convertibles that the soft-top would always leak. At one point or another, water will seep through the window seams or the A-frame seals whenever it rains or even when you get a car wash. Aside from making sure the top...

Not the time to panic
Not the time to panic

Well, that didn't go as planned. I had high expectations that the Richmond Tigers were going to beat the Melbourne Demons on Saturday night. In the end, Richmond was comprehensively beaten.

My favourite player, Dustin Martin, played his 250th game. Melbourne defender Michael Hibberd limited Dusty to just eight disposals before...

Movie night

Last Saturday night was movie night, and it was so good to get out on a  movie date with my wife. After a nice Italian feast, we went to see "Supernova" at the Cinema Nova in Carlton.

I can't believe how resilient the experience of going to the cinema has become....

Today is Anzac Day, the 25th of April. 
Originally, Anzac Day commemorated the Australian and New Zealand forces that landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey on the 25th of April 1915, during the First World War.
Today it is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly...

Saturday afternoon footy
Saturday afternoon footy

I am a little distracted today whilst I do my writing. I have the television on mute, and I am watching the Geelong Cats demolish the West Coast Eagles.

It's not very often that you get to watch Australian Rules Football (AFL) on a Saturday afternoon. Ever since the big bucks...

There have been several unique Mazda MX-5 models over the years, but perhaps one of the more special models was the one developed by Mazda Australia.
For over thirty years, the Mazda MX-5 has been the dominant two-seater sports car, known for its excellent road-handling and driving feel, but it has...

Get in line

It looks like I will be eligible to get my COVID-19 jab next month, now that the government has agreed to start mass vaccinations for anyone over the age of 50 from the 3rd of May. This means I will get the vaccine earlier than planned.

Australia has two vaccines available,...

For many years I was fortunate to have a car park in my city office and drive to the office. Parking in the basement, I could take the lift from the basement up to the office. The convenience was great, not to mention the status of a car park at...

Nice guy

I am not sure how I get myself into these situations, but I find myself in a hybrid work model this month, where I am doing two days a week at my new job and three days a week at my old job.

When I informed my old boss that I...
