Bombing of Darwin

Got to spend time with the wife today, went in to the city for the commemoration of the bombing of Darwin in WWII. Really liked the ceremony, the artillery put on a bit of a re-enactment using era appropriate weaponry. The cannons were quite load.

Cruise sick

Can't say that I've ever had a hankering to go on a cruise. The big draw that I hear people raving about are the drinks and doing nothing - neither of which are things that appeal to me. I'm not a "lounge by the pool getting wasted all day" kind of guy.

Having said that, I wouldn't mind setting sail on a reasonably big ship, going out to sea hunting sunken treasure or something. Not a little tug boat size ship, something like a coast guard or research vessel sized ship or bigger.

Currently in the news, another cruise ship has docked with an outbreak of gastro. Considering that they are a closed system of sorts, have thousands of people from different parts of the country and go visiting other countries, they become a petri dish of mixed bugs.

No wonder people get sick. Pass, not my thing. I'd rather keep working. Or have a good hobby to keep me busy.

Week Six

And a weak performance. This is relating to my writing, with the week of the year. Was ahead on my word count but now that we've clicked over to a new week, I'm pretty sure I've fallen behind.

There is an old quote about writers, not sure who said it: "Anybody can say you can't write, don't let them say you don't."

Failing on that count, at the moment. :(
