Melbourne Ukulele Festival

Graham | 11/03/2014 | COMMENTS:1 Comment »

G & K have had 3 days there.  Back home on Monday morning and exhausted.  What an experience.

Need to plan for next year.

Didn’t take any photos, but here is the Facebook page.  Can you see me in the photo.  Back top right in the Jim D’Ville workshop.

Two and a half days.  90 individual acts.  The main venu and lots of clubs and stores with ongoing music.

BTW the Ukulele groups included violins, cellos and double bases.  What amazing sounds.

I resisted the urge to buy a new ukulele.  Do like the Manton Concert. Next year maybe. Hot smile

It was a nice warm day at Carl and Iris’s.  Coldie in hand. Winking smile

Well my mate Michael was made an Australian citizen on Australia Day (26th Jan).  The location was a small town in the Otway Ranges called Forrest.  A beautiful sunny day.  With the BBQ later. Thumbs up

 

Congratulations Michael.

Unusual August

Thanks to Edward C.
This is a scam – misinformation.  Check August 2003, 2008, July 2016, Dec 2017 and May 2020.  Lots of them.
Simply:  Any 31-day month that begins on a Friday will have five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Check the comments for an explanation.
Graham.

This is the only time you’ll see this phenomenon in your life.

Calendar August 2014

Sun Mon Tues Wed Thur Fri Sat
1 2
3 4 5 6 7 8 9
10 11 12 13 14 15 16
17 18 19 20 21 22 23
24 25 26 27 28 29 30
31

August, this year, will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays.  This happens only once every 823 years.  The Chinese call it ‘Silver pockets full’.

A trip to Britain

Graham | 15/06/2013 | COMMENTS:No Comments »

Back into the land of Oz.

What a trip. The four of us, Grandad, Nana, Nyah and Zara.  Off on an adventure to Britain.

Well where did we go?

England
Wales
Scotland
Paris.  Yes Paris, on the Eurostar.

To reduce this experience into a few short paragraphs is to do an injustice.

London pubs (for lunch) shopping, One direction, the Queen and all sorts of things.

Jumped on a Trafalgar trip called Kilts and Castles.  Now yes we did stay in a castle plus some older accommodation.

At a medieval dinner we were the Baron, Baroness and princess for the night.  Crowns and all Open-mouthed smile

Learnt a lot about the Romans. The Baths in Bath for example.

Lots of castles and churches.

There is too much.  Best way to know is ask one of us.

 

Took about 500 photos.  All great, so, here is just some.  Click to enlarge:

And who did I say we met?
