OK, so it's been two months plus since the last entry and I apologise for that.
The last couple of months have been time for reflection. Remembering anniversaries of the death of loved ones, and attending a funeral of a family friend who basically knew me from birth and was good friends with my parents.
I was fortunate enough to have two weeks rec leave in late August, and decided to visit North Eastern Victoria, which is famous for its small, historical towns (from the 1850's gold rush/boom, and wineries). Unfortunately the day I drove down, all I heard was reports of major rivers rising in the area and the risk of widespread imminent flooding. I ended up staying down there for about 4 days, and the first day was a writeoff as far as travel was concerned, but still got to see some sites and taste some wine, so that was fun.
Choir is getting ready for our last major concert of the year and I'm looking forward to that. I'll write more about that during the week.
One thing I'm really enjoying at the moment is reading of the exploits of Jonathon Stalls (www.kiva.walk.com) and his walk across America, with the wonder dog, Kanoa. I joined Kiva at the start of the year, and have been regularly donating small amounts of money, to help people get a start in business in lots of countries around the world. Jonathon is spreading the word about Kiva by walking across America. He started on the East coast, and has reached California. Because I started reading his blog a little late, I'm only as far as Kansas, but he's doing some incredible stuff along the way, and his blog is a real travel-blog, and that's the kind of blog I tend to generate to. Go Jonathan.
Apart from that, I've got Sherlock, Episode 3, the finale, on TV, and I'm recording it, with the mute button on, to watch at a later date. It's good stuff, and I really enjoyed Ep 1. Haven't yet seen Ep 2.
It's been wet most of the weekend. Pretty ordinary. Oh well, it won't be long before we're whinging about it being too hot.
Ciao for now.
