Good to find you sympathetic to the activity-theoretic approach.

Noted the Bildeberg meeting, that is very interesting with the presence of future political leaders attending years before they are elected head of their respective countries.

Not since Tony Abbott gave Prince Philip a knighthood has the nation appeared so immediately galvanised into calling out a truly stupid and offensive notion

I just wish we could stop it swinging so far right all the time.

Am reading The Divided Heart, by Rachel Power, about artist mothers. Am replacing the word "mother" with "father" a bit, because I think it works. +Sunshine Connelly​
How I’m slightly terrified of the oncoming mix of motherhood and art….and how judging and terrifying me further isn’t go…

I don't think any 1 inch timber would have survived this +Thor Diesendorf​. But the red stuff is certainly the weaker of the two.

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.

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.

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.

Stylish, moody little arts bar with quality food and drinks, and innovative decor.
