    Nan, is this your Boxer.

    LOL ... no but it looks a bit like Tzutzu (Kiri's boxer girl) and something she would do as she's still a baby. Interesting that the boxer has a docked tail, it's illegal to do that here, although I think it's still allowed in New Zealand. So, all our boxers have long tails and boy can they hurt when they are furiously wagging them to let you know how happy they are to see you lol

    Ozzy Man Reviews Soccer Dives

    The level of profanity in Australia is in line with the level of "class" or lack thereof. I don't swear often and when I do it's normally when nobody but I can hear it, but I do when I see someone referred to as "Ozzy". That makes me wonder if it's genuine, or just something "made for video". It's "Aussie" folks ... Oz was a mystical land in an American movie. The video is hilarious and yes, some of those players are not very good actors !!
  8. Happy Birthday Star !!!!!!! Have a spectacular day filled with laughter and happiness. xx

    Well, sometimes in grief, it's easier to talk about them by remembering little jokes and things that happened when they were alive.

    I agree with Smiley, he typed well at times. He was a beautiful cat that's for sure
  12. I have a little Fuji Finepix S1500 digital camera. One of the reasons I like it is that it has a viewfinder as well as the screen display, and I much prefer to set up a photo using the viewfinder. It seems these days, unless you go to an SLR digital, there are very few digital cameras with a viewfinder. The camera does al I need, and a lot more, and it suits my needs. Also has a great grip on the side so I can hold it securely.
  13. A good camera ... I can understand what you said too lol

    A PNG friend of mine received an award yesterday in the Australia Day Awards, his award says he is a Senior Contributor. He is involved with our local "Mens Shed" which is a huge building where the local menfolk can gather and create all sorts of things, without the women around to interrupt them. Jodam is one of those men and not long ago became an Australian Citizen. His award was in recognition of the mural he painted along the front of the shed. I took some photos for him this morning so he can send them to family in PNG and thought I'd post a couple of time here. One shows the building with the mural along the length of it and the other shows part of the mural with a post in front that has also been painted. Jodam's maintings are quite good, he is also a very talented sculptor and some of his pieces are excellent.

    Here are a couple of his sculptures the first one comes with a note from him as follows : "As a creative carver, I always make a point of challenging myself to be able to leap when most others would only jump. A couple of years ago, I was given an old piece of marble tile by a neighbor, she told me that she carried the tile all the way from America to the Philippines and that she wanted the stone to be fashioned into a carving as a safe-keeping memory of her growing up in a house somewhere in America. So for two years I kept the stone at the entry way to my studio while muling over what shape was best for the stone. Then one day I brought home a couple of broken shells from the beach and left them on the tile. That was how my mind was able to tag onto the shape you now see here."

    He has a couple of sculptures on his FB I'll post them here and no I've not told him lol ... I will one day maybe
  22. As per a discussion, here are some photos that were taken during and the day after Mt Tavurvur erupted in 1994 together with Mount Vulcan. The volcano sits on the side of the harbour where the town of Rabaul is located. Today the town has been moved a bit further away to Kokopo although we were told people are slowly moving back to Rabaul. Rabaul and Kokopo are located on the island of New Britain in PNG. Tavurvur has erupted since 1994 but not to the same extent. Note: the photos were taken using colour film however due to the ash in the air they appear to be b&w
  23. It would have been pretty scary to be around when that blew up and I have been told the noise is incredibly loud too
  24. Yes Koach .. I've been lucky to have been able to live in a couple of countries that were definitely at first, out of my comfort zone. I have had some great adventures along the way and I am so pleased I had the chance to do something completely different. I learned a lot about people and different cultures along the way too
  25. This is from the Volcano Observatory where a friend works, looking down to the harbour and volcano .. they have quite a view
