Remembrance Day

11 Nov

This has a double significance here in Australia… One, of course, is that it is a time to think of the sacrifice of those who died in war, and also of the folly of war. The other is that the last Australian government to be dismissed by the Queen’s Representative was Whitlam’s in 1975 on this day. I remember it well.

OK, now on to blogging…

You will have noticed, maybe, the new sub on the masthead. Sums up what this blog really is, a noble enough aim in my opinion. Anyway, it really is all I can offer. See reflections on this at Why do you blog? — Nov 18th, 2006.
