You learn a lot about people in Elections, I have learnt who to trust and can say there are only 3 people I can fully trust.

When one of those 3 get defeated it's devastating but when you start getting text messages from someone who is celebrating their defeat it's sickening.

Well done Riley! Again

She was part of a winning Netball grand final tonight, 28-26 very nail biting towards the end.

Ironically, given her brother has always been the sporting star, she has gone one better than him and won a grand final. Jarrod has played in about 9 footy/basketball/cricket grandfinals over the years and has never won one. Riley in her first GF was victorious.

Well done Riley and you played a great game.

I have a friend

Called Greg, I have known Greg for about 10 years, our boys are the same age, Greg lives in Sydney and we share the same passion the Sydney Swans.

Greg calls me this arvo, hey hows it going, general banter followed, then he informs me he is getting married on Saturday. But not only that, he is getting married at the Andre Rieu concert at whatever the the olympic stadium is now called.

Only 21 guests, very intimate.

I am still spellbound at the news, not so much of the wedding but at where it's happening, I am sure it will hit the news somewhere over the weekend.

Goodluck Greg and Jean, may your life together be full of happiness.

Lancefield Killer Rd

I don't really like using Lancefield Rd and luckily I don't have to very often, 3 young boys from our Footy Club were killed in a car accident on this road in 2002, and today I find out that I knew of the 2 people killed this week in another accident on this road. People are so impatient and want to overtake where they shouldn't and all of a sudden people, they were parents of 2 young kids, are dead. RIP Paul and Cheryl!

Winter returns

Isn't summer supposed to be starting next week, could have fooled me. Had coffee at Just Planet this morning, and I paid for mine (unlike others apparently) and support this initiative 100%. Cricket was called off so the afternoon was spent pondering and watching the Aussies smack the Kiwi's in the first test.

Weekend frolics and more

I need to look for a new job as my contract is probably not being renewed due to lack of funding. A rather attractive job has been advertised nearby so I'll apply for that and hope for the best.

Cricket and more Cricket this weekend and a fundraiser for a friend who has cancer. The weather is not looking too good either so watching B Grade cricket is going to be a challenge.

It's a shame when you hear of people drinking coffee at a local coffee shop and then walking off without paying. $6.00 really isn't that much to part with surely, but it can mean a lot to a small business owner.

On another matter how can the CEO of Telstra be justified in earning $13,000,000, this is just obscene.

Go Wes on Sunday!

Well done Jarrod

Both of my kids are kicking goals at the moment.

Jarrod had an innings of 103 yesterday and was named player of the the round for the Sunbury United Cricket Club.

It was great to be able to spend the afternoon at the Cricket Club, the people are great and the sport is fantastic, a great community club.

Well done Riley!

My girl has made the Grand Final for Netball, in a very exciting game tonight her team one 25-24 to get straight into the Grand Final. I had to miss a residents meeting tonight but family always comes first and I am just do proud of my star Wing Defence.

In other news, my stolen sign has turned up where I had searched previously, maybe the article in the paper stirred some consciences.

Also interesting to see that if candidates are to have websites then they should look after them and moderate them, as it would be embarrassing to have the wrong people post to them.

What next!

You have to have a thick skin in this game but this takes the cake

``Comments were passed at the Remembrance Day ceremony to that of Cr Potter’s dress code- sorry to say this, but for the not so popular Hume councillor, it was horribly, disgustingly wrong. A suit, costume/slack suit would have been complimentary, she looked like an old rag doll just before thrown into the rubbish bin, not a councillor with pride in herself of appearance.’’

Sorry in future I will dress as a 70 year old, I am 40ish and dress in accordance with my age and gender, I didn't have board shorts and thongs on , I dressed for the weather.

An article in the paper again about me and all I had to do was show up. Thanks guys! I was finding it hard to issue a press release this week and you have done the work for me.

Can exhaustion kill someone?

Had all my great friends and family out on the road today, letterboxing. I did 3 areas, Jarrod with an injured leg did 2 areas with his mate (thanks Zac). Overall 12,000 leaflets in letterboxes in the next 2 days, not a bad effort from volunteers.

Luckily it was a very nice day for walking.

No camera's out there today though, and they didn't even capture the printing drop off the other night to me, thanks to Pete for getting the brochures printed in lightening speed.

No I am just realising I am a bit sunburnt, and I had a hat on.

Until tomorrow or whenever.

Advertising isn't cheap, and when one of my $260 signs gets stolen I get mad. Two signs side by side one gets stolen, one doesn't. Well to the people that stole my sign, cause it would take more than one, I hope you find much enjoyment in it.
