The Best Comet McNaught Photo Taken in Australia
If I was there I would have had tears in my eyes. Amazing.
Aussie observations - Sydney life and the rest of the crazy world (and beyond!)
Oh dear. After giving Mamdouh Habib a vote of support yesterday (see here) Habib has given us his opening salvo in this article:
"...there are no terrorists in Australia, I believe."Hmm... not to doubt his intimate knowledge of all twenty million people in Australia, I have to say it's an interesting belief he holds. I believe I sound better when singing in the shower.
These are some of the best still life photos I have seen. Check them out!
The off-court controversy keeps coming at the Australian Open in Melbourne.
I'm sitting at home watching the Australian Open right now. I'm only half listening to the commentators droning away (still recovering from last night's Muse concert!) and something caught my ear.
This waterfall is amazing!
zoom In is a nifty little google maps copy for australia with excellent street coverage and search capability. Pretty swish for 4 guys to whip up!
If cars had porn. This would be it.

I said goodbye to my cousin and headed off to explore the great north-west New England. I headed for Nimbin via the back roads. The back roads run around the old caldera mountains of the volcano (what do you mean, "which volcano"?) and the views were absolutely awe inspiring. I stopped at one vantage point taking in the amazing spectacle before me and after a few moments I became aware of a strange repetitive springy noise. I looked over the nearby fence and there was a young girl bouncing on her trampoline. i watched her for a few moments and then let my gaze drift back to the awe-inspiring view. This is hew backyard. This is what she sees while she jumps on her trampoline. Lucky.
Today was a relaxing day. I woke up late and cruised into Byron for a coffee. I love beach towns. I can go to a cafe wearing noting but a pair of (really cool) shorts and no one complains about my big gut! I love it.
