    It's Australia Day and we remember the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney. To Aussies everywhere have a great day.

    Thanks Bill, and to you too.

    IN the meantime, still fighting with the new tap (washing dishes in the laundry tub isnt much fun), but I realised I could re-use some of the fittings from the old tap, they are pretty much universal. The old ones are much heavier duty and better quality and it all worked fairly well. I have only got to reconnect the hoses (well the hot hose is done, the cold one not yet, my knees gave out... hate getting old). So, in lieu of a good photo, here's one of the underside of the sink .. before...

    Done!
    NOT the LX, iphone to the rescue here

    Here's a picture on Australia Day of Trooper Alfred Cameron Junior, an indigenous world war one serviceman, taken in Redfern, an area characterised by migrant populations that have lived in the area over centuries and very much the indigenous community.

    Gosh, you make me jealous! Could you include the sun in your next frame? I want to recognise the bugger if I ever see him again ...

    (Honestly, thick low cloud cover for more than a week at constant -5C or lower - it's getting old. As does the air below the clouds, by the way.)

    Thanks, Matt. I almost broke into the bloody ice (2nd time) and made history as the first SiJ casualty. Gotta be careful to survive those last 5 days :laugh:

    Funny I didn't spot this earlier (this is the entrance to our garage - the little toy wind mill sits on the roof) - it's a bit blurry, but that's because the wind's blowing ;) - S95, 67mm-e:

    Never fails, I'm actually early getting out of the house, everything's in the car, and yes...we all end up behind the Sanitation Truck. For every stop. For three miles.
