Todays highlight. Public service rally.  Disability workforce crisis.  All power to unionism!

I don't know how many computers I have outlived. This time its the last straw.  I'm outa here.

 Sign of the times.  Very old signage came to light  Watt Street.

Twenty first century minds and technology flew above 33,000 feet: while medieval tribes and the dark ages were below on ground level.

Scaffolding is creeping up the clock tower of  City Hall. Must be time for renovation and restoration.

Another air disaster.  I recall several flights on Malaysian Air which makes it more relevant.
Apart from  everything else, MAS air staff must be in shock over their losses this year. The attendants are lovely.

Another puppy dog who would be very pleased to have a tartan coat to wear.

Requiem.  Today, Australia ended the policies to combat climate change.

Don't forget the pioneers  namely  Kevin Rudd and  later Julia Gillard the Greens and others in parliament. Even Howard had ideas on this issue.
Nothing positive is in the air.
Without the carbon tax we will all be wealthy.  No need for cut backs to this and that to balance the budget we will have money coming out of our ears.

A few dogs came along for Sunday morning coffee.

Our elected representatives exaggerate, for special effect, about climate change and say everyone asks us to get rid of the carbon tax and they list obscure problems that it causes. Everyone they meet complains - so they say. Instead, the MPs could offer some leadership.
  While taking criticisms on board, it is an opportunity to raise the issues with the electors they meet and suggest the need for action on climate change, for them to think beyond their own expenses -  put down to the tax - and be reminded of the price that we all need to pay for carbon emissons that cause the damage.

Warm solar power. 
Coffee in the morning sun is the only place to be when the breeze becomes truly chilly. 

The political dialogue could be improved a whole lot.  Scrapping the carbon tax will save us x billions a day in energy costs mantra.      Instead, say something useful and pertinent to climate change policies.  Suggest we will pay dearly for our polluting energy consumption.  It is up to us.  There is no quick fix.  But, with our politicians as conservative anti-intellectual hayseeds how can you expect any good climate change policies?

Drive carefully during the school holidays and everyday.
This is an image from the past.

Where is the National Broadbrand - Gillard style?  Just out of town no distance and the usual dodgy  internet connection. 
Not in snow country but where the nights are so cold and frosty and the days are stunning and warm till 4pm at least.
