Yeah I was there

When Warney got is 700th wicket and his 701, 702, 703 and 704. I wasn't there when the 2 Aussie wickets were taken late in the day. Considering we were up early and everyone was tired, it was a good day. Glad I made the effort to get there. Note to self, don't ever sit up in the back 4 rows of the Great Southern Stand, too many stairs and ramps.

Sadly the last year I will be Santa

Miss R is nearly 11 but I have managed to have her still believe in Santa. I have just finished putting out the pressies, she is sound asleep. Mr nearly 15 is shocked to find he has only one present, but there are always surprises in life. Merry Xmas Everyone, stay safe in the New Year.

Poor Mr Lefty

Jeremy Sears has been a great help to me in the past on some matters, whilst I may not always agree with him on the occasional issue, most I do. Jeremy acted as a moderator on my blog while I was overseas last year, although he didn't have too much to do, I was greatful to have a decent person to oversee things.

Well someone has stolen is 2 blogspot sites, and JS is now writing from his new site

This a lowlife act, and given comment on how much his blog sites are worth on Technocrati or whatever the site is called, there may be more in this than just a rival hacking in to his sites.

On leave!

Well Seasons Greetings to all who read my blog. Due to a trip to the beach for a week, a wedding in Geelong and 19 days in Bali, I doubt that I will find much time to put finger to keyboard in the next month.

However I will still be reading email and answering the mobile for constituents, so my leave is only really part time.

And Supa, I will find a way to get you back from my near heart attack I had in Coles the other day ;-), if anyone wants in on the joke, feel free to email me any you will be sent an interesting SMS.

Take Care everyone, drive safely, hug your kids, have fun.

Have you watched Kenny, I had the opportunity to watch it this week, and while I am not sure about the lead actor winning the Best Actor Award at the recent AFI awards, I must admit to really laughing at one scene. Previously to me watching Kenny, my good friend S said to me, there is one scene in the movie that you will really crack up at, she didn't tell me the scene but when I saw it, I knew it was the scene and she later confirmed it.

In the words of Kenny, and I'll paraphrase, why bother with a divorce. Just buy a house then find someone you hate and marry them. Problem solved!

Anyway it's an OK movie, light entertainment.

Oh it's nearly Christmas, I haven't got the lights up, too little time and lack of motivation due to the vandalism of last year. However there are some fantastic displays up around Sunbury.

Mr J continued on his criketing success yesterday and bowled with the figures of 2 for 32 off 11 overs.

What a week!

Congrats to Krudders and Julia for taking over the Labor Leadership, it is really the best chance we have at toppling to HoWARd government.

This week has been a whirlwind, new Labor Leadership team, new mayor and deputy mayor, congrats to Gary and Drew, as I said you are not quite the dream team but you will still come close I reckon.

The bushfires are bad, Sunbury is a blanket of smoke haze, but cricket still goes on, Mr J was not out on 4 runs today, coming in at the 7th wicket, he stood his ground in the 40 degree heat with proud parents looking on and remained not out at the end of the innings.

His game wasn't as exciting as the 2nd Ashes match which finished on Tuesday, I congratulate the Australian team for doing something I never thought could be done.

Anyway 30 sleeps to Bali!

3 for 33

I am just so proud of Mr J, today he played his first open age A grade Cricket game for Ashfield and took 3 wickets for 33. He took the wicket of the best batsman in the comp, getting him out for 98, the batsman wasn't a happy chappy being bowled by a 14 year old.

For anyone in Diggers Rest today, I apologise for the increased use of a motor vehicle horn, as I got a bit excited today.

Well done J!

Go Krudders!

Went to a dinner tonight, special guests were Kevin Rudd abd Julia Gillard were guests with Krudd giving a fantastic speech.

Good Luck on Monday Kevin, you are really needed to rejuvinate the ALP and to provide an alterative to JWH.
