Public Nonsense Number 2.

Posted by speedygeoff on Monday, June 08, 2009 with 4 comments
Plans this week.
Monday 8
Parliament House training 5:30pm as usual. I will meet at 4:30pm for a longer run first.
Wednesday 10 BBQ Stakes 12:15pm.
Thursday 11 5:30pm Dickson oval training as usual. Again, I plan to start at 4:30pm for a longer run.
Saturday 13 1:00pm The ACT Cross Country Club has a race at Stromlo Forest Park. Changed: to Deeks Forest Park, Uriarra Road.

Public Nonsense Number 2
Following on from my “pavement rehabilitation” post recently, here is another example of public nonsense.
Road signs saying "signalisation of Yamba Dr and Mawson Dr". Turns out traffic lights are being installed.
... and 3.
Signs in a building saying “This program will deliver the most modern vertical transportation system available”. Apparently the lifts are being upgraded.

Here is a rare mention of the weekend footy. Down in Melbourne: Crows 21.4 (130) to Bombers 18.6 (114). Both Roger (Crows supporter) and Graeme (Bombers supporter) were there. I wish I had been. One of our better wins.

The trophy I was awarded for having run the first and the fortieth Canberra Half Marathon. It is unique; no-one else has one, nor is eligible.

Backyard Birds
Holt is very pleasant at this time of year. Many delightful birds visit our back yard to feed. These Crimson Rosellas visit in numbers, and only fly off when Cockatoos arrive in even bigger numbers.


  1. Straight to the trophy room.

    Unique trophy Yeah.

  2. A beautiful and useful trophy!

    For some unknown reason I backed the Bombers :(

  3. Don't worry, also backing Essendon would have been Graeme, Jim, Trevor, George, ..... HAHAHAHAHA!
