A perfect day


Saturday was the Diamond Creek Town fair. I’ve missed a few over the last couple of years because the fair used to be in March not September. Parked the car up the hill I used to live on and walked down to the ovals across the bridge.

At first I got the impression the Fair had changed from what I last remember it. But as I moved from the Coventry oval to the old Soccer oval I found the CFA demonstrations, the running events, the Axemen, some car displays and a myriad of local stands. Pretty much as I remember. It got pretty warm in the afternoon.

Walked back up the hill along Bage St. to Galatea St., where I used to live. Went home. A perfect day.

    “… That’s unfortunate. I’m with Charlie on this one. I think we should be able to determine what we want to use to represent ourselves professionally within reason …”

    And if you do at least be able to pay for it. I thought that would have been an obvious choice. LinkedIn smacks of insiders, closed doors and exclusion. This might be all right for those who work for/with “the man” but not those who don’t. Does LinkedIn have some competition? Would there be any benefit of a more open alternative (aside from twitter)?

    ps: Fred what is the origin of your avatar?
