Adelaide

It was quite some time ago when I went to Adelaide for a one-week break, just over five years in fact. I only wrote one post about it, called At Last; A Hot and Sunny Day in Australia. Yes, it was a bit of a strange title, but I did go there just after the [...]

Yes, really. I've had enough of comparing supermarket prices for fruit and veg, meat, fish and other stuff, let's compare snake bite seasons. In just one weeks time it will be winter here in Australia. Where I live though, Brisbane, you really wouldn't think it. Daytime temperatures have been sitting at around 25° to 27° [...]

tv

Well, why not? I've compared prices, the weather, houses, I've even compared the Grand Canyon and Uluru. I think it's about time I compared television award ceremonies, don't you? After all, I think it's fair to say that most of us, whichever country we live in, do like watching the telly now and then. And [...]

Time to catch up with another of my Australia and New Zealand magazine articles; this one appeared in their February edition. I'm really not sure why it has taken me so long to cover this subject, because I do know it is an issue that causes major problems for so many families. It's when the [...]
