I just received an email from Jerusalem. It contained a photo of the Welcome Home flags for Gilad Shalit. It’s good to have the kidnapped soldier home again and I am happy for his family who waited a long five years for his return. Shalit was kidnapped in Israel not Gaza while two of his … Continue reading I’ve changed my mind about the ransom of Gilad Shalit
In June of last year we decided to replace our nine year old Series 5 BMW. It had been an excellent car and so we were confident that the 2010 release of the Series 5 would be as good if not better than what we had. Mistake No I. We made an assumption because of … Continue reading Why we were wrong in buying the latest Series 5 BMW

In an article in today’s The Age newspaper Costello has criticised the Leader of the Liberal … Continue reading Peter Costello eats sour grapes once again
While parts of Melbourne were being trashed by the terrible storm yesterday, we attended a stamp auction at the Brighton Philatelic Society.
