Twisted

Embrace the fact that life is not straight and the route not always clear. Paths lead into all kinds of places and experiences, some better than others, and hopefully by the end of it you will have something like this, a solid base with many paths and journeys outstretched.

This majestic old gum does not necessarily have the attraction of the rich colour and youth of some of its nearby peers, but there were still hints of former glory and lines which just drew me in (that and it was pretty well next to my tent )

Advanced

Whilst these may not look that much different from previous aircraft – although i reckon the 787 looks freakin' aswesome :) , the technological advances that have gone into newer aircraft is quite amazing, on one hand i feel some what reassured that our aircraft manufacturer's are making aircraft more environmentally friendly but on the cynical side and probably the more realistic side the real reason is cost with the convenient side effect of improved emissions..;)

Aviation (AU) emissions have steadily increased with the increase in air travel, 19 mil tonnes to 22mil tonnes over 4 years however the fuel consumption rate and emissions rate is decreasing (about 1.5% per year decrease), that is a result of more efficient aircraft like this one, the 787 (and the desire to make aircraft cheaper to run ;) )
Thats enough fun facts for today

This is little E's favorite spot after standing on a chair or climbing on the rocking horse to lick the TV, she can take delight for quite some time steadily destroying the neatly arranged books on the lower shelf of the bookcase then sitting amoungst them reading (well looking) at which ever one takes her fancy

Happy Birthday Chaos

We did not really need the check-out test run in the carpark, she had pretty gotten used to it (including the gears) by the time she got to the end of the street.
A bike and the ability to independently ride it is a real sense of achievement and freedom for a child (i kinda remember it ;) ), to be able to ride to school, to a mates place or just down the local TAFE carpark the bike was important bit :)
before I know she will be taking off in her own car soon
