  1. I had a 1998 Ford Festiva which was a great little car, cheap to run and carried a surprising amount in the rear hatch with the back seat folded down, until an idiot ran into the back of it 20 months ago and insurance said it wasn't worth repairing. We called it Pixel, because the rego was PXL--- and it was small.

  3. Talk about stuff things up. I was close to the CBD today (only been into the CBD once in the last 5 years). I take my wife to a matinee concert at Hamer Hall on St Kilda Road, between the Arts Centre and Princes Bridge. My normal route is along Olympic Drive, between AAMI Park and Rod Laver Arena, over the Swan St Bridge and around Linlithgow Avenue to St Kilda Rd.The last couple of times Linlithgow Ave has been closed for roadworks. It is now one very narrow lane each way with kerb and post barriers down both sides to protect bicycle lanes the full width of a normal traffic lane. Cars were creeping along nose to tail, and not one bicycle in the bike lanes. Then, Southbank Blvd, at the southern end of the Arts Centre, is now also one lane each way for part of its length with a reserve for trams down the middle with grass between the tracks. At the intersection with Sturt Street, if you make a left turn into Sturt St, only 3 cars can get around because there is a set of pedestrian lights just around the corner. Can you imagine them closing down one whole block of George St in Sydney for 3 years? That's what is happening in Flinders St, between Elizabeth St and Swanston St, while they build the new underground railway.

    I thought it was the P in swimming that was silent.
  5. HMAS Melbourne (III) has returned to her name port prior to decommissioning. She was commissioned on Feb 15, 1992. She was open to the public on Sunday, but I was not able to get there. However, I was in Port Melbourne today while my wife attended her monthly matinee concert, and took the following photos. I was surprised how small the guided missile frigate is. For some reason I expected a somewhat larger vessel, not that I know anything about boats or ships. The frigate was on the western side of Station Pier and the Spirit of Tasmania was on the eastern side. The Spirit is not large itself when compared to the cruise liners that visit the port, but as one of the photos shows, it is nearly twice the size of the Melbourne. She will be decommissioned on October 26th. Being on the western side of the pier meant that her stern was toward the beach.

    Did you see the video of the guy behind the wheel of a Tesla and his passenger sound asleep as the car raced down the highway? The driver(?) looked like he has passed out the way he was slumped over.

    "According to a new survey, women say they feel more comfortable undressing in front of men than they do undressing in front of other women. They say that women are too judgmental, where, of course, men are just grateful." Robert De Niro
