Edition 314 – Disaster Preparedness

We’ve all seen the images of utter devastation that have occurred across the East Coast of Australia over the past two weeks. Torrential rain and huge floods have impacted thousands of people and the insurance bill is surely going to mount to amongst one of the largest ever in Australian history.

Edition 311 – Pearl Anniversary

On the 24th of December, 1990, two lives changed forever. I’d been invited to Christmas Eve drinks at the home of a university friend and his wife. As the sun set on that pleasant evening, I found myself sitting next to a holidaying young English lady and we chatted the night away. That was the first time I laid eyes on Trish.

A rapid antigen test declared a positive result and that was it for me for another week – imprisoned inside my bedroom.

Edition 305 – Pulling Up Stumps

And there you have it, another year done and dusted. As you’re reading this, Trish and I are already into the second week of a four week break. We’d decided that the disruption of the past two years, and our inability to take leave and travel as we would otherwise had done, had drained the tank early. It was time for a re-charge and last week we spent a fabulous week holidaying in our own great city of Sydney, enjoying life at the Taronga Zoo Wildlife Retreat.
