In retrospect, a recycling bin with an easy to open lid may not have been the best idea. 🐱
I just need a few people (20,000) to get together and chip in a few dollars each and I’d have a brilliant Christmas present in the shape of a Starfleet Communicator from Star Trek: The Original series, courtesy of this memorabilia auction. 🖖🏻
Two of my favourite things, cats and Star Trek. 🐱🖖🏻
My Malvern Star Moscow 80 racer sat under water for three days during the 2022 Brisbane floods. I gave it a good clean down at the time but haven’t touched it since. Pulled it out today to assess it and plan a restoration project. I’ve had it for 43yrs and would like to take it for a cycle again.
Looking at photos from a 2008 visit to the British Museum. Wild to think how the Rosetta Stone was already 1600yrs old when it was dumped as rubble in fortifications in the late 1400s, which led to its accidental discovery 300 years later and unlocking the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic language.
Spring Saturday afternoon vibe check.
21°c and sunny ✅
Sailing on the river ✅
⛈️ A lazy Friday night. I’m sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the storm slowly roll in. The cat is doing the same, just without wine.
One of my favourite photos. An overnight flight and I was able to capture the sun starting to rise off in the yonder.
Signalling my day is full. Don’t ask me for anything else.
It was a pretty good panorama to grow up looking at every day.
The Australian media cycle is obsessed about the government not approving more landing slots for Qatar airlines and how it’s anti-competitive.
If only they cared this much about the lack of competition in the grocery sector, where two companies have 80% of the market resulting in inflated prices.
Well, who you gonna call?
Thinking about a trip to Yosemite from San Francisco back in 2008 and the views of the mountains and forest as you wind your way up. A beautiful spot.
Project manager asked us to complete a survey so they have a baseline to measure against as project progresses. Survey has a scale of:
1 - Not Adequate 2 - Adequate 3 - Exceptional
What rating system jumps from adequate to exceptional? There was no way I was scoring anything exceptional.
Sometimes when I don’t feel like doing a long walk I’ll use the orange outdoor exercise equipment that’s down by the river. There are several different types of equipment and all very well used by the public. Today I had a pedal on the bike.
Time to fly on a gorgeous sunny morning.
Spending time with family is precious and Floyd is family. I mean, how can you resist those puppy eyes. 🐶
The buildup and anticipation from Floyd as we head for the water. Can almost hear the “hurry up” in his look back at me. Wants to be in the water. 🐶
