As is probably obvious from the fact that I have a Music Category I am passionate about Music. For me the answer to the question, what could I not do without after my fantastic family, it would be music.
I am always listening to music or watching video clips. Saturdays tuned into Max on Foxtel, playing a CD, watching a music DVD/Bluray, logged into Spotify, Pandora or a visit to the CD shop are all very much part of my day.
So today when I checked to see what Max were featuring I knew the challenge of what to play whilst writing my monthly article for a local newspaper and completing my journal entry for Uni was solved: Top 70 from the 70s.
I was a teenager for most of the 70s
I love planning holidays as it adds to the excitement and anticipation.
Sorting out the airfares, planning the places to visit, reading hotel reviews, buying travel books, finding places where we might eat, sights to see, buying new luggage and so on!
We decided a couple of weeks ago that we would take three to four weeks in late June through July and go somewhere. It’s peak season in Europe and not really our preferred time for travel, but it’s also University semester break and the quietest time at work in my year.

Still it’s week five and I am still going. Continue reading
For almost forty years I had read reviews telling how amazing Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are live! I had my chance to see if they were right on 27 March 2013 a date that wil forever be etched in my memory!
From the opening song Long Walk Home to the final song American Land, I along with a capacity crowd at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne were spellbound by the electricity which “The Boss” exudes. Springsteen had the audience eating out of his hands. How is that after so many years of touring you can come on stage and still be at the top of your game?
He is a master
My wife and I had planned a trip to Italy, but work got in the way, so instead of a three week break it became one.
We decided on New Zealand – what a great choice! Only half a day from Adelaide and we were in Auckland, a harbour city
that is like a mini Barcelona. It’s harbour setting provides wonderful views, and with them comes great restaurants and a relaxed feel. We stayed at the recently redecorated Art Deco styled, Hotel de Brett one of the more interesting places we have stayed.
