Remember the 'G-String'?

My wife of 30+years, Kaye sure does! Particularly as 10 years prior when we first started going out together, I was showing her how to play guitar.

Ok – I’m not a professional but I do know enough about music to explain the strings on a guitar. E-A-D-G-B-E… So you might be saying… “what’s the big deal?”

Remember these? - VHS & CD's

You could almost hear a pin drop as the announcer walked up to the microphone and began to speak in hushed, almost reverential tones – ‘Ladies and gentlemen' he intoned in that rather theatrical way they so often do..., 'Welcome to the finals of the 'Decade of Transformation Awards'.

A smattering of nervous applause.

Remembering Our Pets

Except for very short periods between losing one and getting another, my wife Jacqui and I have never been without pets.

They unfailingly became true members of our family and we always weep when one of them either dies or needs to be euthanized due to old age and ill health.

Somehow, home just wouldn’t be home without one or two of our little mates, joining in the fun of life, with us.

Christmas 1941

Eighty years ago, when I was very young, Christmas was a very different animal to the festival we enjoy today.

For a start, there was the overriding effect of a World War going on, something which meant many of the favourites everyone had enjoyed, some of them for centuries, were suddenly not available any longer…

Like the orange in the bottom of the Christmas stocking or the brightly lit decorations in the shops, invitations to Nazi bombers to come and kill us all!

Kyushu Japan

Kyushu Japan... A mythical mysterious wonderland of sights that exceeded my wildest dreams!

This relatively unknown, to Australians, destination is the south westernmost of Japan’s main islands. It has a mostly subtropical climate so not as cool as Hokkaido in winter. With active volcanoes, beaches, and natural hot springs it is a destination to put on your list.

Dealing With The Loss Of A Pet

As a professional grief counsellor, what I do get a really big buzz out of, is seeing people who have had to say goodbye to their much loved pet, then come back months later and they've changed their whole life around!

They've gone from almost being at that ‘suicidal stage’ to dealing with their loss and understanding how we can all handle our grief.

Flying A Glider... Easy Right?

Gliding can be great fun!

But for those not too familiar with the sport, I should explain that gliding entails climbing into a small aircraft, (not equipped with an engine!), being towed by one of several means to a height of about two thousand feet, and then staying up there for as long as possible, making use of various weather features and your own skill…

I’m Soooo Bored!...

Ever heard this from kids – "I'm sooo booored!" Ever said it yourself? Why do we get bored?

What ever happened to ‘spontaneity’ where you just do something for fun on the spur of the moment because you feel like it? The famous Oprah Winfrey set some challenges for families a while back on her very popular TV show.

The challenge was to see who can go a week without the TV, iPads, Facebook, computer games etc.

What Is The Meaning Of Success?

What Is Success…. Really?

Retiring at 30 or younger? Having a portfolio of multiple properties providing an eye watering passive income?

A recent news story got me thinking about the true meaning of ‘success’...

Remember Those Days?

I’m sure I’m far from being the only one, but with increasing old age I find that I keep getting ‘snap-shots’ appearing in my mind’s eye, memories of the silly, painful, happy or sad things the occurred to me when I was very young, (you know – less than thirty years old), and that have obviously been stored in my head for all these years, until a drawer or a filing cabinet in my brain has suddenly burst open and let a memory out!
