Something To Love by Jason Isbell

A track from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s album Nashville Sound.
A wistful track that speaks of deep roots and a legacy that may or may not see fruit in the current day.

At Least It’s Not A Monorail¬†

George Street in Sydney (and others) have looked like this for months (years) now while they put in ‘light-rail’ (don’t call them trams, it seems).
At least it’s reduced traffic volumes already.

Footy Tipping 2017 – NRL Round 17 / AFL Round 15

Still not a lot of clarity.
AFL looked a little more dependable with only one unexpected result as Adelaide seem to have developed a wobble or two.
The eight as it is now will not be the eight at the end of the season.
NRL has a few teams that were supposed do all right leaving their run until late.
Canberra and Penrith qualify in this regard.
It will be interesting to see how the Broncos hold up over the next three or four rounds.

NRL (last round 4/7; season tally 79/118)
Paramatta
Saint George
Melbourne
Easts
Manly
North Queensland
Newcastle
Penrith

AFL (last round 7/9; season tally 69/117)
Sydney
Western Bulldogs
Adelaide
North Melbourne
Greater Western Sydney
Port Adelaide
Essendon
Collingwood
Fremantle

Boo! Sydney! How Could You?

I’ve arrived in Sydney and it’s 13 degrees and drizzling.
Ripped off big time!
