Rising Sea Levels

Whilst flicking through my local community paper last week I came across a very clever Letter to the Editor.  Mr Dick Percsy of Swanview was quite the comedian. According to Dick, “Media reports suggest that 60 per cent of Australia’s population is overweight or obese.  Other expert reports indicate rising sea levels. Is it possible that these two factors have bearing on each other?  In other words the continent is sinking due to the excess weight of the population and is threatening Perth’s beach-side suburbs.”

Chilli gets Jailtime

Last weekend with what seemed like the entire population of Western Australia, I headed down to Fremantle for the Annual Chilli Festival. Fremantle is the beautiful port city of Perth and I was marvelling at how popular the Chilli Festival must be due to our inability to get a sardine spot on a train or a carpark. When a massive funnel presented itself at the dock it became apparent that the Queen Mary 2 was in for the day and there was a football game on as well. But back to the Chilli Festival. I am not good with chilli’s but I like the idea of them Continue reading “Chilli gets Jailtime”
