The best way to clean your car

The winner is Brisbane

It won't hurt a bit

Starting tomorrow, the first of the COVID-19 vaccines will roll out for the Australian population. The first phase of the rollout will include our health care and hotel quarantine workers and vulnerable people in aged care and disability. That's an excellent place to start.

The pastry chef

It is not easy having a pastry chef in the house when you are trying to stick to a healthy diet and lose a little weight, as the pastry chef regularly brings home beautiful pastries to eat.

It is challenging for me to say no when there is an array of...

The Great Race
The Great Race

"Race on Sunday, sell on Monday" was the marketing catchcry for the car manufacturers, a justification for the pile of money they spent over the years on Touring Car racing. Touring Car racing is a class of motorsport that is based on a modified road-going car. Most cars would come...
