  1. I've just been to see Amazing Grace which is the story of William Wilberforce and his battle to abolish slavery in Britain. A beautifully produced, powerful movie.

  7. Really, is that true? Probably not as low as I am. But a few kilometres into the hills from here. Wow, I didn't think that anywhere in Australia got snow ! We didn't actually get any snow. Temp got down to 4degrees C overnight. Where I live snow is very unusual. About once every 10 years.

  12. Various!! Following my usual Saturday habit of Rage on the ABC.
  13. Queen - Greatest Hits Volume 1. Perhaps my age is showing!! No, to really show your age, you should say you are listening to Elvis, since he was popular when you were a little boy. Lots of younger people like Queen, and in the big scheme of things, it's not that old.

  15. 35 degrees celsius here!! I am heading to the Oz Open Tennis tomorrow and the temperature will be even warmer.
  16. By way of contrast, where I live in South Eastern Oz today was 41.8 degrees Celsius and the next two day are forecast to be similar. We are dealing with grass and scrub fires spread over a wide area.
  17. Blowing a full gale in southeastern Oz. Been out with the fire brigade clearing fallen trees.
  18. Cloudy and expecting a top of 14 degrees Celsius in the Latrobe Valley east of Melbourne in Oz. Rain expected later in the day. Huge rainfall on Gold Coast and Northern NSW. 2000 km north of here. It is mid winter of course!!
