The Light Fantastic

A cracking good storm after a hot day is always a welcome relief. Bit of a bother though, that just as relief is carried in on a cool breeze, you are forced to shut out the refreshing change as you batten down the hatches to protect your home and hearth from rain, hail and gale.

Day of Dust

On Wednesday 23rd September everything turned orange. A little bit of the country came to visit the sea. It was quite an amazing sight as the skyline slowly disappeared beneath a veil of descending dust. These pictures give a little indication of the transformation that befell the Sunshine Coast.

The clean-up afterwards was a fairly mediocre prospect.

River of Fire

No more F1-11s at RiverFire - mediocre indeed!

What's that all about then?

I'm certain I don't know.

Each day has its mysteries.

Some things infinitely more mysterious than others.

How's the serenity?

There's nothing quite like a beach holiday for getting back to nature. The gentle rustling of leaves in the breeze, the merry chirping of birds, the rhythmic roll of the waves, the roar of a jumbo's engine...

By the way, the mediocre part of that video was not the plane destroying the peace (that was pretty cool), it was the terrible videoing!

Hop Along Now...

Apparently a number of children throughout the world were bitterly disappointed on Easter morning this year, with the Easter Bunny dropping his bundle and failing to deliver Easter Eggs to countless homes. The attached picture may go some way to explaining this event. Lift your game bunny boy!

Who's the Mentalist?

There’s a lot to like about “The Mentalist”. Simon Baker is engaging as the damaged lead, Patrick Jane, who has an ever so endearing smile (and rather dapper vests). The relationship between Jane and his boss Lisbon is a friendship built on mutual respect and admiration that leaves you wanting just a little bit more. The scripts are generally entertaining and the characters have a moral consistency that is refreshing.

I can’t help but envisage a juvenile debate, however, when I hear the title. It’s a little kooky.
“You’re the mentalist!”
“No you’re the mentalist!”
“I am not the mentalist! You are!”
“Am not!"

But at the end of the day we all know that Patrick Jane is the Mentalist!

Diffused Illumination

After eighteen years of mediocrity, I was pretty used to being average. I realised now that I’d long ago given up any aspirations of shining at anything. I just did the best with what I had, never quite fitting into my world.
