My starz by Oscar Cainer

It's amazing how much energy some people are prepared to expend whilst never seeming to go anywhere. Take treadmills, for example. Why would you want to simulate moving forward rather than actually going somewhere? The illusion of progress is surprisingly prevalent through all aspects of life. Whether it's putting something off by doing something irrelevant, or losing perspective so that you can't see the futility of the task absorbing your energy. We all do it! Today, make sure your energy serves a purpose.

Very relevant today as P.R.W. and I drive north to Brisbane City for another meeting.

Hello to Dymphna M.  ! 

It was nice meeting you @ lunch today. 

Welcome to my blog. 
There's a lot of stuff which is probably mundane. 

If you want to look @ Fukushima Life
go to the Archive on the Right Hand Side.

It's all arranged chronologically, so maybe try 7 or 6 years ago
to find something which might more interesting.....
You can leave a comment below 
to let me know you were here .....

June, 2017 

It's already June. 

Thursday, 1st June, I drove to Brisbane. 

Thursday night,  I stayed with Sandie & Steve. 
Beth joined us for dinner. 
It was great to catch up with them all. 

Early Saturday morning I drove to Craignish. 
Arrived at 9 am.  The weather was superb. 

Saturday afternoon we went for a walk along the foreshore. 
It was very enjoyable. 

We 3 had coffee and cake at a coffee shop. 

Alicia made dinner..... yum, yum. 

Sunday, 03rd June, 2017. 

Stavros and I got up early and went to the local market
where he buys fruit and vegetables. 

Above:  local sugar cane fields.
Below:  Alicia made pancakes for breakfast.

Above:  Maggie the dog leads a somewhat lazy lifestyle.
Below:  At lunchtime, Alicia prepared a picnic lunch which we ate on the foreshore
Unfortunately, although it was fine weather the wind was too strong. 

We then went to a different coffee shop for coffee. 

We drove to see Ros & Bob's new block of land. 
They will build a new house there soon. 

 Can you find the dog ? 
Where is she ? 

Alicia prepared Sunday evening's dinner. 

Monday morning I drove from 8 am to 1.30 ish pm
from Craignish to Elanora.  Actual driving time was 5 hours. 

I am not used to driving such distances anymore.
