Safety, brought to you by everyday Australians and our incredible, stunning country.
 
Go Aussies!
A little bit of what makes this country amazing; diversity of people and our breathtaking environment. Good one Qantas!

Any non-Aussie Plusser, please respond.

(Aussies welcome too!)
IT IS a fairly standard thing found in every shop in Australia. We begrudgingly pay 30c for them, and generally take them for granted.

This man has no hard hat, no safety glasses, no hearing protection and no gloves!

It's currently about 1000% relative humidity here in Brisbane. Humid enough that the bottles of mineral water I just bought from the supermarket were getting condensation on the outside when I got them home. 

Thankfully (?) there's a storm warning and currently the rain has started too, might cool it down.

Story
Tagline
a sailing nut with a working problem
Introduction
Loving hubby to Brooke and Dad to Ella and Jaspar, my next true love is sailing.  When I find spare time, I also enjoy photography (though I'm the equivalent of a weekend hacker in golf), embracing all things techie and getting involved with our sailing club's internet presence (+Brisbane 18 Footers, web page and Facebook pages) as well as virtual sailing with VSK Australia.

My online mantra is "attack the post and not the poster", and I don't feed trolls.  

Please don't be offended if I don't add you back or interract with you in G+ land, my time online is limited!

Close by our work - we go there for the morning "happy hour" coffee ($3.50 large/$2.50 small). It's pretty much just a "hole in the wall" type of cafe with a few chairs and tables available, we always just get takeaways. Reasonable range of sandwiches, wraps, foccacias and salads, with their "loyalty card" extending to these as well as the coffees.
