We welcome to our shed a Suzuki DL1000 V Strom. Over the years I have had many motorbikes. I’m not loyal to only one brand, I’ll ride any decent bike, and some not so decent. My first bike was a 125 Honda, it was old even when I got it, but on the positive side,..
As we suggested a few weeks ago, a fence extension for Buster the Dog has been built. In a previous post we mentioned that Buster had figured out that the underground fence was only effective on him when he was wearing the special collar. He really is a clever dog, but it can be a..
Sending money home to the Philippines is something that we all seem to have to do at some point. There are thousands of reasons why it is done. It’s not just the Philippines, it is also people from many other countries around the world that for one reason or many reasons, they need to..

This is possibly due to the facts that we do not use any chemicals (totally organically grown), and we always allow..
As most regular followers would be aware, I’m a professional truck driver (a trucker, or truckie here in Australia), so I’m always navigating myself around the highways and byways of this country. I’m reasonably confident that I can say that I have a good idea on how to get myself from one area of the..
We have driven past the Roma Street Parklands many times in the last few years, we have even successfully used it as a shortcut when making deliveries in the Brisbane inner city area. We thought that it was time for us to spend a little time in this wonderful inner city parkland. Some people would..
