inner city

Perth’s inner city is in the middle of a revamp .. the main train station is nearing an end and is so much easier to use.. the riverside project is under way ; this will create a bay with a shopping, café type precinct on the river’s edge. with all this going on the use of art to cover the unsightly is more common , my only critique is more should be done….

emissions trading act

the emissions trading act comes into force today..  i’m am stunned to hear the Labour Party pouring scorn on it saying that it is talking money from us and will negate our tax cuts… how short is their memory? … it’s not that long ago that they , the Labour Party , used celebrities such as kisha castel-hughes and lucy lawless to promote their scheme that would take more money from our household budgets without the benefits of tax cuts.. what pissed me off at the time was these celebrities could afford the estimated $40 a week ! .. to rub salt into the wound at the time of the promotion castel-hughes flew over to france to an opening of a film she had acted in.. if she was that concerned she would not have flown half way around the would to see a film she had already seen…. everyone in power is dodging the important issue , where is the money that is being collected going ? no one seems to be telling us this..

a week of fantasy and steampunk

` its been a full week .. it started with a good book , one of those that grab you from the start , this means that the tv has not been on , even for the news… the author is well-known , robin hobb , but i have not read any of her books .. now i will seek more of her work out … this was the main stay of my leisure time with the news coming from the computer , from that i  stumbled across a fad called steampunk .. in short steam punk is Victorian dress with si/fi accessories  eg. laser guns etc .. this is a little bit out there but some of the jewellery was cool ..
