Greta Thunberg has good intent, I respectfully acknowledge that climate change exists and some of her motives, I do support the move into the electric vehicle industry as soon as renewable energy becomes the main producer of electricity with a reasonable majority (maybe about >70%). I do, however, believe that some of the moves she makes to prove her points (as well as climate change protesters rambling on and blocking CBDs around the world ironically increasing the amount of pollution emitted by cars) is quite extreme, and further ironic. Boat to the USA? Yes, what material? How was it made? Are you sure it lowered your carbon footprint? How was it transported... etc, you get my point.
This is not what makes me happy today though, and so I will end my post here. Apologies for semi-off-topic discussion.

I strongly believe that she is a puppet.

BUT BUT she took a ride in a boat to avoid plane to the USA. I wonder what material the boat was made out of, and how the material for the boat was made?!!


Cough UR cough cough cccough


Hope the boat was made from recycled materials. Unless otherwise.


Anyway, Managing to get a good photo of Dyson’s bus #1117

A laugh from me about hearing that Adani is ranked 99 out of 100 of Australia’s most trusted brands

Seeing and chatting to one of my former primary school teachers today, makes me feel very old. They remembered the old story about them telling my parents at a parent teacher night that I was lousy at drawing and could not even draw a tree (and still can't- or at least make it look like one) and also the day I fell into a fish pond on a school excursion.

Quite a bit late to the party taking care of some more important business, but absolutely happy with 3AW for the fact that, as was mentioned by scott in the Radio Discussion thread, Denis Walter is moving to Nights next year. And because of that, listeners don't have to put up with Sydney-based John Stanley anymore and I don't have to keep tuning off after Tom's program and keeping it switched off until Tony's show starts after midnight. If I want Sydney-based talkback radio and if I actually wanna hear John Stanley's voice then I'd listen to 2GB, but I don't. I listen more to 3AW because I care more about Melbourne and the rest of Victoria.

The last time I can semi-recall seeing a primary school teacher I was just about to go into High School and my mother and I were at a discount store and we ran into a former casual now permanent at the time(?) teacher of mine. I think we had a quick chat and wished the best for each other and I thanked her for her teaching & efforts. Sadly that's the last I saw of that Teacher. I don't think she teaches anymore but I still have my year 6 special T-Shirt with all of the year 6 teachers and students names on it and her name is on there.

I do know at some point between year 3 and Year 6 my Mother and I were at the shops again and we ran into my Kindergarten teacher but I could not for the life of me guess who she was at the time (i knew her name, but my memory of her wasn't matching up to her since it had been years since I last saw her). I don't remember what we talked about sadly and like the above case that was the last I saw of this teacher as well.

As for the drawing part, don't worry, I can't even draw anything besides basic stick figures myself. Drawing was something I never really picked up on.
