Up front in Brisbane.
Sydney had the colonial Rum Corp.  Today its the Wine Corp.  Corruption is a constant feature.

It is unbelievable that certain characters stand for election and that electors vote indiscrimminately for those who have absolutely nothing to offer apart from their own personal wheeling and dealing, rip offs and making more money to add to their existing fat bank balances. The electors are blind.
You find these MPs relaxing on the seats of parliament, hand out for a good salary, eager to get away to do the real business undertakings with the big end of town and with no passion for the welfare of the state and its people.
At the same time those MPs that are eager, innovative and hard working cop a lot of criticism.

Post-cyclone. Nature lurks in the streets of Townsville Queensland.

Massive sweet potato with purple 'flesh' from the new community garden growing near shopping centre Wallsend.  This variety claims more benefits for us than the other varieties with yellow or white interior. Flavour was good, colour....well...it's different.

What is it?  A museum piece.  In Townsville.  Guide rail off the Bruce Highway twisted by cyclonic flood waters. Oops. Wrong way Go back!

Is it two dinosaurs one of which is a road train in Queensland.  Are they fleeing south? And west. Darn, I was there just a month too soon to see the tail end of a cyclone, best from a safe distance.  Stress would be building north of Cairns where the people await the onslaught later today. I imagine surface water will find its way far and wide.

Wonder what they do in this workshop?  In Wallsend. Says it all.
