Memorial Drive sweeps down to Bar beach.
  Or take the high road, a new memorial walk part of which is spanned by a high over bridge.
 The wartime silhouettes are strategically placed beside the footbridge.

Pizza oven.  On the back of a vehicle at a festival - where else?

After hearing Dodge talk on ABC radio during his visit, about Neuro Plasticity there must be great scope for enlightening academia and other professionals.
New ideas to help those who have disabilities from stroke and injury should prompt the medical profession, nursing profession, speech pathologists, physiotherapists, psychologists, music therapists - to name a few, to take up the challenge.  But are they up for it?  Old habits die hard. How long will it take to filter through their neural networks? networks? no, silos.

Storm clouds.  The global community is very slow to react to the size of the movement of displaced people.  Perhaps there is no precedent. The grand narrative has not hit home.
  No priority is given to a concerted effort to ease this world shattering problem.
  Our government is immune to the bigger picture  and is inhuman, colonial, patronizing and mean like all of us.

Summer on Ice....this takes on a new meaning in the fast food ads.... Summer on Ice....Barista made iced Latte...

 When traffic is light, cruise the Golden highway, roll along over hills and dales for a very pleasant drive from the nor'west into the Hunter valley past dairy farm, horse stud and coal mines.  Other times, unfortunate road accidents have occurred.

Surely the government does not fool any of us about the budget.
Their patronizing and insincere approach it too much to bear as they toy with the incidentals just to save their own skin and to get around mention of their deficit.
Small business grants are just a decoy

To rave on about payments made to new mothers, rave about how fair the payments are and limit the payments is very very odd while ever, for instance, the big end of town is assisted, even applauded in accumulating great wealth thru over generous taxation arrangements.

Stormy weather Newcastle Beach

Budget 2015 is pathetic.Must it be all or nothing after the failure of 2014?   After all the dire talk of deficit and trouble.
  Ideology is the rule rather than the greater good  - according to my limited understanding.
Possibly the real punishment will be in the funding of the states and which was not obvious in last night's budget 101.
