Bill Hunter – An Oz Icon

To me, Bill will always be the sympathetic Major Barton in the trenches of Peter Weir’s Gallipoli, softly humming to Adagio in G Minor as he writes one final letter to his wife.

A Convenient Truth (Part 2)

Countless inaccuracies and falsehoods have been presented to ‘strengthen’ the warming argument, but a lack of open debate between proponents and ‘deniers’ points simply to one conclusion – a blatant act of deception on the part of those who have much to gain from carbon taxes and the new religion known as “Global Warming”, itself having gained momentum as a profitable avenue in many areas of business…

The Birds & The Bees…

It’s spring in Australia, and all around us the birds and bees are putting on a good show!! My favorites are the family of swallows which are nested just outside my bedroom. The birdy couple are there every spring and this year they’ve outdone themselves with an offspring of four…
