Went to dinner with some colleagues at Fuel in Manuka today. The food was awesome and nicely presented.

From the Chef talking through dishes through the severy to the waiting staff really pleasant and inclusive atmosphere.

If are looking for high quality food in comfy friendly environs you can’t go past this little restaurant. Have a look

Watched Jack Nicholson at his Film Noir best on the weekend, a wonderful film. Roman Polanski’s vision and use of period buildings in this Whodunnit is quiet exception not to mention the nice little cameo as a Knife wielding thug.

Worth Watching, I cannot recommend highly enough

I have been working in Newcastle for a week now. I am really enjoying the challenge of my new role. I cannot believe what has happened, it is Raining. It started last night with a couple of lightning bursts and some thunder and then it rained.

I do not mean the wimpy Ohhhh Ahhhhh I am trying to rain drizzle we get in Adelaide I mean Kahuna sheets of water. Wow I am so not accustomed to soo much water. I do see one problem though all the rain runs straight out to sea, not really any chance of capturing it and sending to poor old brown and shrivelled SA. Oh well wil post again soon

Yes it is true, I have just won a job in Newcastle, New South Wales. So I will no longer be based in Adelaide.

 This was a bit of a shock but one cannot be upset with change so it may be another little while before I can post again.

 Have Fun

Letters from Iwo Jima

Even having not seen the companion piece “Flag of our Fathers”  I loved this film. The sepia colourisation breath life and hardship into the character. I loved the wonderful dicodomy of a failure due to cultural and national pride. The battle is lost as soon as the thoughts of the soldiers turn to the formality of the national expectation and the samurai warrior code instead of what is required for them to be victorious in the facve of overwhelming numbers . A great exposition. Thanks to all who were involved in this film
