Kevo in the ring

Kevin Kinnison forwarded this link along to me from Singapore. It shows Kevo, from about a month back, battling it out in the kick-boxing ring in Thailand after knockin' back a few beers.

Murrumbidgee Swim

I really have missed the Ginninderra Falls since access to that swimming hole became prohibited a couple of years ago. This summer, I have teamed up with Google Maps to locate new swimming holes. Ash and Elene came out with Jen and I to take a dip in a tranquil little spot that I found just north of Canberra.


We did a little bit of exploring around the crossing that we stopped at and were surprised that there are some many fish in this part of the river that you can't help bumping in to them! In the photo below, you can see the lower half of a dugong (or is it a massive white groper) that has made it's way up the river to feed.


I just spun around on the spot to take the short video shown below.

RSC Xmas Party 2007

Motoring around

Jenny and I dropped in on Rimsy's riding class on Saturday afternoon while we were touring around on the GS500 together. By now I hope that Rimsy has picked up the 1999 Yamaha FZX250 Zeal that I have been petitioning him to purchase in anticipation of his success this weekend at the rider's course.


To keep the entomological theme running (Rimsy has formal training in the area), will a reader please identify this insect? It is a variety that has chosen to share the bench with Jen and I at lunchtime at uni.

RSC Cricket Day 2007

Jenny winds up for bowling during the first half of the annual RSC cricket match.


After firing this delivery down the pitch, Jen proceeds to almost take a catch as well. It's a great day every year and this time it was a draw between the Organics (the team to which I belong) and "All Other Chemists".

Ready, aim...

Jen came along to see me receiving instruction in my new sport on Sunday.


Puss didn't come out to have a look, but he did have a good weekend too.

Younger brother visits Fox

Marko, finished with exams, scooted straight down to the Fox for a healthy dose of Singstar and homebrew.


The Murrumbidgee was swollen with recent rain so Ash joined Jen, Marko and I for a splash out at Casuarina Sands.


Mix's quick thinking scored him a prize in the ACS drinks evening at the old Moose.


Check out this happy elf: He knits jumpers for Christmas.


And this elf has earned a drink or two.


What a fun night - let's do it again soon!
