The Local Paper Has Good Headlines 

This is today’s effort.
I don’t want to read the article, the headline ‘Sewer Rage’ is enough.

Footy Tipping 2015 – NRL Round 21 / AFL Round 18

So everything was going alright with the AFL until Sunday afternoon. Melbourne going down to St Kilda was fair enough, but Lance Franklin’s late withdrawal doesn’t fully explain Sydney’s capitulation.
In the NRL, New Zealand and Canterbury rained on my parade with losses (partially justified with New Zealand losing their playmaking half-back), but both teams are underperforming chronically.

NRL (last round 6/8; season tally 84/144)
North Queensland
Brisbane (beware the strife riven Manly with a new coach)
St George (because Newcastle are going even worse than St George)
New Zealand
Gold Coast

AFL (last round 7/9; season tally 102/144)
Sydney (two teams who have been through non-football related emotional turmoil.)
North Melbourne
West Coast
Port Adelaide
Western Bulldogs

One Evidence That God Is With You (via Dale Ralph Davis)

“Sometimes the clearest evidence that God has not deserted you is not that you are successfully past your trial but that you are still on your feet in the middle of it.”
Dale Ralph Davis, 1 Samuel, 2010, p. 200

Only If It Has WiFi

This looks like a tempting part of my ‘run away’ plan.
It’s called ‘Just Room Enough Island’, for reasons that are pretty obvious.

Driving Through Dalby

Confession: Dalby was once my definition of a town so far away from city life as to be considered beyond civilization.
I laugh and laugh about that nowadays, of course.
Sorry, Dalby.
