Finally, all the hype by advertisers for Xmas is gone, and gone with it the ads for booze and partying that go with New Year. To my great relief. I loathe Xmas - the expectations, the traumatic childhood memories, the shops full of carols and the drunken rioting by youth-on-the-Xmas-excuse, rampaging. Uggh.

However, on a lighter note, I've clocked the earliest hype for Easter that I've yet seen. K-mart, an Aussie grocery and cheap department store chain, has had Red Tulip Chocolate…

Having difficulty typing. A storm is brewing outside and will have to turn off PC soon. Trembling Shih-tzu (who's scared of storms) glued to lap and getting in the way of the keyboard. Mind you, when the big tsunami they keep predicting hits Oz one day, the Shih-tzu will have warned me by the terrified act and we'll make sure to avoid Sydney for a while (thus avoiding the seaside) and escape it all.

Going for walks every day I breath in plenty of fresh carbon. I admitted I was a sad, sad, little man.

Yes, it is indeed a very time consuming and tiring from Aust to Ireland or the UK. Each time I go back Malaysia for holiday, I always need at least 2 days to recover. :) Hey.. looking forward to see you soon..

I certainly am, but I'm happy with it..!! I have a Pug-Tzu named Peggy Sue - she's almost a year old, and feels she owns the house already..!! I should post her pic here...

Hi Fran!
I can tell that you and I are going to be fast friends. I am a devout (but not fundamentalist) Christian. I enjoy anyone who is creative - musically, artistically, or humorously. Our taste in music is parallel. Please post some pics of your jewelry. I would love to see it. Maybe I can mail you a jar of my honey :-). Take care. Rusty
