With this magic wand wishes come true at Christmas

Here we are now, barely a month before another Christmas Day. No point pondering where the year’s gone, better to look forward to the festive season. It’s a wonderful time of the year for most of us, a time when even wishes can sometimes come true. Children will sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they wish to find under the tree on Christmas Day. Mums and dads will be running around like crazy putting the big day’s feast together. And for just one day, December 25, time will stand still as we share the joy with those we… Read more »

Cup is time to have fun to the Max

We could not let the so called race that stops a nation go by without naming our Top 5 choices to do well in 2017. But let’s get the disclaimers out early on barrier one: we are the world’s worst punters and any horse we mention is not in any way a recommendation for you to put real money on it. The last time our Melbourne Cup horse came in was in the late 60s – 1960s not 1860s you smartypants up the back – when Rain Lover won two years in a row.

But back to those disgusted colleagues, those wimps, who informed me they were not going to eat any more of that foul smelling soup. There was no skin off my back; I had just told some of the people in the office that my wife had… Read more »

Time to focus on the main street of our town.

Boom’s on the way so best to be prepared for it

Many small businesses get started from home. But eventually they will look to expand and move out of home, as it were. However, instead of going straight to an expensive office space, small or micro business as they are called these days, have the option of using a smart workRead more »

kites

Hey kid, go fly a kite or ride a bicycle

Reading about Saturday’s cinema under the stars event at the botanic garden in Mt Annan got me thinking about what other activities from yesteryear we have discarded over the years. Open air theatres were a dime a dozen when I was growing up and it’s where many of us sawRead more »
