Save Our Schools

Team Moore dinner

Lots of Italian food was enjoyed last night, and wine, at della Rocca where the speedy geese met for a Christmas get together. The only problem was that my car wouldn't start before we left home, so speedyJenny drove me there in hers. Probably a blessing.



How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

FOOTNOTES

1. Thursday night’s track program:
6.00 3000m, heavy weight, pole vault
6.15 60m
6.30 1500m walk
6.45 long jump
7.00 4 x 1500m relay, javelin, discus
7.30 400m
7.45 triple jump, javelin, discus, 200m hurdles
8.00 4 x 200m relay
8.15 spiral 8

2. OK. At last night’s Parliament house relays, I ran well enough to be confident that I can run a reasonable 1500m tomorrow. So the team of Trevor Cobbold, John Lamb, Paul Archer, and myself, has a chance of an M55 relay record. I am the weakest link! My time yesterday wasn’t all that “flash” but “OK” will be good enough on Thursday.

3. Politics rarely gets a mention in this blog because it is so boring boring boring and because of massive overkill elsewhere in the blogosphere. Nevertheless, today is the day our "leaders" in the ACT will be announcing which schools will close forever from 2007 or 2008. The reason for mentioning this is, Team Moore's very own Trevor Cobbold is the fearless leader of the resistance; heading the SOS (the "Save Our Schools") organisation. Boy has he been busy lately, with radio interviews, press releases, meeting etc etc. Go Trevor, you rock! Just get to tomorrow's relay on time, OK?

  1. re beta blogger - a template change didn't require a republish. That's a huge improvement! I might move some dynamic information back into the template.

    On the downside, my blog shows a feed error in bloglines ever since changing to beta. That's a blogger problem I believe, and not directly connected to the change to beta, and all I can do is wait for it to resolve.

    I haven't upgraded my template yet - I know that will involve me adding all my changes back in if I want to, so I am waiting until I have a bit of time. After upgrading my template, I believe I will then have access to all of beta's new features.

    Same here. Should be doing it soon, but not yet. Slightly apprehensive and might test it out on a test blog before doing it with my main blog. I have, however, gone back and added labels to the past 20 or so posts :)

  3. you're right - it is safest to have a test blog to try out major changes; last time (about 4 months ago?) I tried experimenting with colour, layout, using div layers, switching the sidebar to the left, etc I did just that. It makes "undo" easy, you just delete and restart. So yeah, thanks, I will do that again this time.
