In Australia, even the birds are out to kill or maim you.

The beginning of spring is not all about flowers and birdsong.

For some it is also a time of fear, as magpie swooping season hits its peak.

What's the best way to fend off an attack by an angry magpie?

Oh.
As far as in-flight break-ups go, at least it wasn't the fuselage.

For those is Brisbane interested in visiting :)

In the first half of the 1900s, visiting dignitaries would think nothing of jumping in a carriage towed by a fruit train to hurtle along Queensland's rail lines.

I don't care HOW old this guy is...I love his style and confidence.  When I'm his age, I want to be like him.  Go Gramps!

Fashion is something that changes with time, but certain fashions are timeless. Take this elderly gentleman, Günther Krabbenhöft, who was recently photographed in Berlin near the Kotbusser Tor station. While some other sources incorrectly reported this man’s age as 104, the grandpa himself says on his FB profile that the Internet has doubled his age. Various other sources say he's between 68-70 years old; the fact is, modern day hipsters could ta...

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!

We've had our daughter here since she was 3/4 mths old. Staff are very friendly, centre has been upgraded since we started with a second pool and a cafe!

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.
