The bazillion things I love about living my life online

You know that feeling when you have so much to say but your blog has been having a few days off at the health farm (ie getting fixed from the silly spammers that hacked it) and then when it comes back all shiny and clean, you forgot what you wanted to say? Funny that, because that’s exactly what happened to me! The one thing I have remembered during this small hiatus that no … [Read More...]

I was appalled that someone (many someones actually) didn’t know who Paul McCartney was. Everyone knows the Beatles, they were more […]

There isn’t a person who hasn’t felt it – from the siege in Sydney to the terror in Peshawar and the absolute tragedy of eight children murdered in Cairns, it’s been hideous. Horrifying. Scary even.
