My friend Michelle, over in California (near Sacramento) suffered a devastating blow last week when she got home from work to find that her house had burned down.  She was not insured and she and her son have lost everything.

Please help if you can, by donating whatever you can manage, through the fund campaign that I have set up.

Thank you.

My daughter and some of her school friends have just taken part in the junior section of the Gold Coast Secondary Schools Annual Drama Festival, and won individual "Highly Commended" certificates, AND the adjudicator's award for the best ensemble piece.

Aussie life, and my daughter

I've been spending time in Australia this summer (Winter, down here) visiting my daughter and her Australian family.

I have to say, you can have a very nice lifestyle down here, at least in Northern New South Wales / Southern Queensland, where I am at present, where, even in the middle of winter the temperature rarely gets below 17 degrees centigrade and is often 20 or 21.  The local Australians consider this cold, of course.

The food is good, the roads rarely busy (except in places like Surfers Paradise during the rush hour), the scenery often spectacular and the people are for the most part incredibly friendly and helpful.

I could move here permanently...I could...


My daughter has just turned thirteen.  And I have to say she is far and away the best thing I have ever produced :-)
