Back from Bali

Vicki and I are back from a few weeks in Bali. I was initially terrified of the idea of being surrounded by Aussie tourists who are determined to drink heroic amounts of Bintang Bali Beer in record time. But we limited our time in Kuta to one day and spent the day running back to […]

Website update / Thailand / 2142 and WOW

Updating website – Over the last few days I have been updating Seratoga.com to remove the frames and tables of my past efforts and move towards CSS and layers. The change has taken me a fair bit of messing around and there isn’t a huge difference in the pages when you look at them. The […]

30 years old… CS2 and my friend's wedding in Flowerdale

Butterfly Club Birthday – Well I’m 30 now. At first I didn’t think I could be bothered organising a party, that was before Shane and I started thinking about the mischief we could get up to if we had a combined party. Twice the mates and half the organisation, along with Vicki’s idea of hiring […]

New Camera – Canon 30D & B&B weekend

Photography! I finally bought myself a new toy – and since then have been seeing the world through various lenses and apertures. I will put some more details of my fancy new equipment and some of the photos I have been taking in the Photos section. I have been talking to a few professional photographers […]

Grampians & Vicki's 30th & Russia Pics

First entry for 2006 and already it’s been a great year. Vicki and I went up to the Grampians for some hiking, a few wineries and a couple of really nice B&Bs. Did some serious treks up the Grampians and played soccer with a dog and got away from the big smoke. It was Vicki’s […]

Remembering the way to the gym & Bronnie's play

I’ve just had my 29th birthday and had a weekend to remember. With no less than three other friends having their birthday’s last weekend we all had an excuse for excess and took full advantage of it. Lots of food, booze and dancing later, I had a relaxing Sunday lying in the park drinking juice, […]

Canberra and Revolver – not related how you might think…

Last few weeks have been good. I managed to find my way into a gym and after casually watching a few other gym going people that looked far too fit, I figured out how to use the torture devices. Since then I have been enjoying dashing downstairs from work and doing something physical. After the […]

Working for the Australian Tax Office (ATO)

Since my last post I started working with Accenture on a project at the the ATO (Australian Tax Office). I’m still contracting and signed up to work for a few months in Canberra and then I was told I would be working in Melbourne. I was really happy to get a longer term contract that […]

Cairns… and a new contract

Vicki and I finally had a chance to get away and have a holiday. Our last holiday was a hell of a lot colder and full of culture and life experiences, so this time I was determined to Go some place HOT where you definitely don’t need a puffy jacket and there’s a good chance […]

Training with Craig Guest… musical house

Strewth, I haven’t updated this since last year so I guess it’s time for one… I had a good break over Xmas and New Year, some great parties, time with the family and and chance for me and my computer to spend some quality time together. I started looking for a job after Xmas and […]
