The spaces of retreat from public life occupy too many institutions of higher education, which have been transformed into dead zones of the imagination mixed with a kind of brutalizing defense of their own decaying postures and search for status and profits. - 2016/02/08

+Mark Smithers​​ dear friend, I'm so pleased you're still here. My children know the first verse of this song (lyrics in the comments). Best we both learn it all too. We're going to need it.

Walking the plank of platforms - into a sea of learning
We've been looking at Kannu  - a relatively new addition to the new wave in the crowded space of learning management systems (although we're noticing  some are leaving ). It's strange that new comers are still trying to come into this market, dominated by a...

Took Eveand Maya for a Sunday afternoon paddle down the Yarra River. Wonga Park to Witten Reserve. 4km with grade 2 rapids. Was great!

Still trying to work it all out
Introduction
I live up on Mount Dandenong, 50kms East of Melbourne with my beautiful wife Sunshine, our daughters Eve and Maya, and a dog named Lego. We're fixing up an old cabin here, and planting out food. I'm working for La Trobe University as an Educational Designer in the Faculty of Health Sciences, researching and developing practices in open and networked learning and education.

Quality gear, good prices, flexible service. Ross and Marg are great operators. We arrived late evening, no problem. We stayed in the bunkhouse which was welcome comfort after the long drive with the kids. Next morning we were down at the river fir a nice camp out. Ross and Marg made us feel very welcome and comfortable, accommodating all our needs with patience and smiles. I really can't recommend them highly enough. The Glenelg River and campsites are nice too. We try to time our canoeing for the evenings and early mornings, to get the best conditions possible. Glenelg is especially good for this to avoid possible headwinds, hot mid day sun, and because the river comes alive at night! Fish, birds, wallabies, possums and kangaroo a plenty come dusk and moonrise! The campsites are well placed with jetties and toilets. Power boats do come right up river at times, and are generally respectful of the 5 and 10 knot limit. Sadly, no dogs allowed. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get a permit for well behaved registered dogs, that can be reviewed by other park users.

Excellent telephone service. Distributes Riri zips. I'm heading in for face to face service. Will update when all is said and done. Great so far.

Had a nice drive through the Dandenongs out to Gembrook, down into Bunyip and a loop around. Would be nice to camp by some water, but I suppose it would get ruined. Quite scenic area. Four Brothers Rocks was nice.

Not too busy. Good range of prices. Loved the Pork Hock Pot for $6.80!

Toby is honest, reliable and hard working. We had a big job of 3 very large cypress and one big fur tree. The job involved arborists, an excavator and Toby for the milling. Toby was able to work in with the crew and coordinate his work with them so all could be as efficient as possible. We now have all the timber we need for the renovations at an even cost. We'd definately use Toby again, and recommend him to anyone looking to use the timber from on site.

Checked website, not to mention this Google profile, and there's no mention of being closed over Easter. Not just the Friday and Monday either, but they took the Saturday and Sunday too. Days they're normally open for a few hours, and not public holidays. I've come to realise their opening hours are not useful for people who only have time to access and move stuff "after hours". If that's you, then find a place that is open for your convenience. Here we stand, in the car park, all ready for a big move, looking at a sign that they should have put on their website.

If you think $150 per hour is a fair charge, and you can expect the mechanics get less than $30, then this is the centre for you. Note: they don't take Motorpass, nor do they think to order in obvious parts when booking the service - meaning you'll have to come back.
