Perth Fires 2018

I’ve been holding off re-posting my yearly update of Bushfire Resources in case I jinxed it, but today’s prescribed burn smoke haze reminded me we’ve avoided any catastrophic fire season this year. It might be down to the unseasonably mild summer we’ve had.

Happy to not have to re-post. Happy Wintering, Perthfolk!

This Internet Thing Might Be Catching On

Apparently, 10 years and 1 week ago today, my first Facebook post was “taking a break @ home”.

Still using both. (First tweet was 10 years and 2 weeks ago :

Many services have come and gone (MySpace deserved to die, Google Wave didn’t ) and these two have become something very different from what they were, but I think this internet fad might stick around for a while longer.

The Student has become The Master

The results are finally in; my MBA studies are complete, and I beat my 75% target, so I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.

Many thanks to my long-suffering Ainslie (for all the coffee, hugs, and cheers), my family and my MBA teammates (here and abroad) for their support, lo these last 3 and a half years.

We now return to regular programming; I’ll graduate in early 2016, and am still loving my work at CA. There are a few MBA-sized holes in my schedule that will need to be filled… stay tuned!

For now; time for a break. Zum Wohl!
