This utility is such a ‘must have’ I rarely remember to tell anyone about it! Sounds silly I know but it’s *so* useful, essential even, that I honestly forget that it isn’t a part of the basic operating system! The thing is called ‘WordWeb‘ and it sits quietly in your taskbar until there is a … More Wordweb utility – it's an essential!
The baby humpback whale found stranded and motherless in Sydney Harbour, and named Colin… later Colette, was finally ‘euthanased’ in Sydney Harbour yesterday. There’ve been all sorts of stories about her and the way she was/wasn’t aided by government agencies etc and there is now talk of a *summit* of experts to try to establish … More A whale of a time.
The miniscule Wildlife Warrior and merchandising machine known as Bindi Irwin will be ten years old in a few days (July 24th). The development of her fan base in the wake of father Steve’s death has launched her into ‘superstar’ status.

The sister just sent be a picture of a woodpecker sitting on her bird table. Ntp sure if she’s going to upload it to the gallery so I’ve reproduced it here. It’s a little fuzzy because she shot it though a window quickly to catch it before it flew away, but it’s clear what it … More Blue Jay way…
So there we were trolling along home in the car. We’d been to pick up the youngest from skating… the coach brought her ‘so far’ and we collected her from the drop-off point. As we turned into our street we saw a rabbit in the middle of the road. Clearly it was transfixed but the … More Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit…
The wife is back riding the Bullet Bus.
