Music Or Whatever

I've been taking some guitar lessons as I mentioned earlier. (Christmas Gladstone Guitar School Music extravaganza). One of the web sites I subscribe to just included the following :-

"The impulse to do something else instead of guitar is the signal to start playing NOW. You've got the rest of your life to tend to everything else -- and let's be honest, everything else is just details."

And sitting here at work, it made me think of a lot of my friends and guys I know who have other interests. So substitute the work Guitar for your 'thing', be it Golf, Camping, Fishing, playing pool or whatever and the above makes for a good statement.

Have a good day wherever you are, and whatever you are doing.

Helicopter Trip












































































Just been on a helicopter work trip to look at our project. We go every month to take some ariel views and measure progress. This time I took the opportunity to take a few shots of the town and even a shot of where we are staying. It has been a clouded day so poor quality photos. But at least it gives you some idea of the place. The red ship shows the open hatched of a coal ship. These ships are the big boys carrying over 100,000 tonnes of coal per load to various places around the world.
Gladstone as you can see is small with lots of satellite estates, a marina and lots of commercial shipping berths. All good. Nothing special to show just general shots to let you see the place and give you some idea of what’s here.
