SOME EXAMPLE PROJECTS...
For anyone in the Southern Highlands I hugely recommend getting along to Suitcase Stories by Treehouse Theatre on 4 March at Mittagong Playhouse (2pm and 7pm).
This inspirational organisation have been working with refugee students for several years. Wendy and I saw them perform last year and it was a very, very special event.
Tickets can be booked at www.trybooking.com/254157
Good times in a Blue Mountains canyon on the weekend

Happy Valentine's Day.....
My quest for a wife was successful many years ago. But had to chuckle at this in Bundanoon today!
Almost put my hand on this little critter tonight when opening the gate that was his home
A young Kiwi lady is challenging the need to put shampoo and other products in single use plastic bottles. Shampoo bars, Fairtrade, Sustainable.
We ordered some and it works sooooo well and sooooo easily.
Heading home in the heat....
Decided to ride from our little house in the Snowies to the bigger one in Bundanoon, via the dirt and back roads. 360km over 48 hours.
Yesterday's 160km in 40+ degrees wasn't all fun. Thankfully a few rivers en route.
Looks like today is the last day of another 'hottest month on record'. Climate change? What climate change?
It's at the printers.........
'Mediterranean - a year around a charmed and troubled sea' is being printed as I type.
A book about Mediterranean Europe and North Africa written in Australia (and Slovenia!), published by a publisher in northern Scotland, edited in Cornwall, printed in west Wales......
Not long now!

Join me in Italy this year........
I posted before Xmas about some 'problems' we were having with a timber deck rebuild using a so called expert insurance builder. The rebuild being part of an insurance claim. As part of the stuff up a totally unecessary huge, thick concrete slab was poured and badly poured in November.
Today said slab began to be removed. What a mess, what an unecessary environmental cost!
As a good friend and retired director of a major multinational building developer said 'I've seen a lot of stuff in 40 years but never seen something go so badly wrong'
After 21 years in Bundanoon I'm still discovering new places. A top little canyon less than 5km from town was the perfect place for swims, abseils and waterfalls on a 35 degree day. Thanks Glenn Robinson
Nice little vid from the Coffee Cruise. Thanks Doug Brown aka Canadian stowaway
It was just great to be back on the ocean again for a few days.......
