SuperCats Basketball

The family and friends spent the afternoon (29th April) at the Geelong Supercats basketball.  The game was against Mt. Gambier.  Pleased to announce that Geelong won.  Presented here are several happy snaps of the day.  BTW next to the court in a box does enhance the day.  Thanks Chris.

The photo of Nyah in her Geelong Supercats squad basketball top proudly displaying the name does make me proud.

Broadband speed

I have noticed that my ISP – BigPond – connection speeds are all over the place.  To help measure your connection I have placed a shortcut to a test site in the Links area.
Give it a go.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Graham | 03/04/2012 | COMMENTS:No Comments »

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

An interesting film about an assorted group of British retirees who travel to India for their retirement.

While watching keep an eye on the background.  The views and street scenes are fascinating.

The story is thin, however the acting very good.  Love interests, interpersonal relationships.

The language of the Hotel manager is brilliant.

Definitely worth a watch.  You will get a laugh.

7/10
