Peter Dannock last shared their writing West Gate Bridge
When the partially complete West Gate Bridge collapsed in October 1970, thirty-five people were killed when one of the box-girder spans collapsed while the bridge was under construction.

Holden on, no more

"We love football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars" was the jingle from the ad in 1976, featuring a montage of outdoor scenes, sporting events, native fauna and the Aussie flag trumpeting the fact that Holden was Australia's own car. In the late 1990s, one in every five vehicles sold...

Dog sitting

Going away for the long weekend is always a little bit harder when you have to find someone to look after the dogs. Usually, we rely on some family or friends to look after them, but we will have to use a dog sitter this coming weekend.

Our dogs are like...

The long weekend

As I reviewed my monthly schedule, I noticed that April would be the month of the short work week. Therefore, except for the first weekend in April, every other weekend in April will be a long weekend for me.

Australians get an annual leave entitlement of four weeks per year. Add...

Digital plastic

In our new digital world, I like the idea that I don't have to carry a wallet around with me and that everything I need from my wallet can be secured on my phone. For example, I haven't carried any cash for three to four years and use my iPhone...

Record membership

When the pandemic first forced the Zoom-Zoom to curtail club activities, the committee was sure it would also impact the membership numbers. With little or no activities, members were less likely to renew their membership or, in some cases, they might have even sold their roadsters. So to support members,...

Compost

My family likes to do its bit to recycle when we can. We have diligently separated our bottles, cans, paper, and green waste into the appropriate council-provided recycle bin for a long time. However, when it came to food scraps, we were too happy to throw them in the bin...

Late writing

I’ve just heard my front door lock, which it does automatically at 9.00 pm each night. It also coincided with when I managed to get today’s writing started. I generally like to start my writing a lot earlier in the evening, but tonight it seems I had a whole heap...

Car story

Recently, I reconciled the motor vehicles I have owned in my forty-two years of driving and counted twenty different cars. On average, that is a car every two years. Most people might own around ten vehicles in a lifetime, but I have owned over twenty, which doesn't count the cars...

It's ok to be wrong

I am happy to acknowledge when I have done wrong and bear the consequences that come with that. After all, getting things wrong is how I learn to do things right. So I don’t fear failure, and it doesn’t keep me awake at night.

When I get something wrong, it is...
