Places of the Heart

National Service memorial

I had about half an hour to fill the other day, waiting for daughter to do her driving test, so I went for a walk across the road to East Creek park.

There are a number of memorials in that area, and though I've lived in this city for over fifteen years now, I've never taken the time to look at them.

The first one I encountered was the National Service memorial (above). This was dedicated in 2009.

Vietnam War memorial

Then there is the Vietnam war memorial, dedicated in 2004.

This plaque honours the civilians.

Air force tribute

This element commemorates the RAAF.

RAN element

This commemorates the RAN.

And the driving test? Success - another learner in the family.

Bolt's Bluster Bombed

Giving the fatuous Andrew Bolt any more exposure than what he already has clawed his way into, is probably daft, but this is worth your time, gentle reader.

James Mathison, ex TV host, who is opposing Tony Abbott (AKA Metronome Tone) in Warringah, was interviewed on Bolt's show the other day.

The result has gone viral, which isn't surprising when you consider how effectivelly he counters Bolt's usual bluster.

This young man has real potential.
