On this Week
Shrine of Remembrance
The Shrine of Remembrance, located in Kings Domain on St Kilda Road, Melbourne, Australia was built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I and is now a memorial to all Australians who have served in war.
The eastern long-necked turtle is an east Australian species of snake-necked turtle that inhabits a wide variety of water bodies and is an opportunistic feeder.
The Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5k (ROC Race) is the original game show-inspired obstacle fun run featuring larger-than-life obstacles set along a 5k walk/run course.
I went to my first Melbourne Victory game against Perth Glory last night at AAMI Park which is a thirty thousand capacity stadium built for the football. We used to play at the Etihad Stadium which has a capacity of fifty three thousand seats but it was always empty so lacked any atmosphere. The seats are close to the pitch and reminded me of going to QPR where you can practically touch the players.
Tonight is my last night in Jamaica before I have to return back to England and back to work. I have had a great time here but I have eaten everything there is here so now it is time for me to move on.
Leaving Service Stream
I left Service Stream on Wednesday after working there for nearly 4 years. It was a strange farewell, none of the new management came to say goodbye or even send an email so when it came to 4pm and time for me to leave I just picked up my bag and left.
It has been a long time since I have posted anything so here is a rundown. I have been in two earthquakes in Melbourne, one which knocked me off my feet and the other whilst I was baking on the balcony which gave me a shock. We have also had several after shocks but they were only minor.
This is what I like to call Green Mash, it won't turn you into the hulk but tastes good. It started a few months ago when I was boiling some potatoes and broccoli and I left them on the heat for about 30mins whilst I was on the phone. When I returned the potatoes were overcooked and i just had to mash the lot together.
