Umpherston Sinkhole Gardens in Mount Gambier

Umpherston Sinkhole – South Australia

Hi Folks,

They say that everything but gardening is unnecessary. I am not that sure of it but if you truly are into gardening, here’s a bit of an advice for you. Find a sinkhole and start gardening. If you are in the Mount Gambier region surely you will find some time to visit this lovely garden. Umpherston Sinkhole is a pleasant place to hang out but for staying for a longer time – it’s not for me. Surely I would think differently if I was a garden gnome.

Edvard Munch The Dance of Life

The Dance of Life – Edvard Munch

Hi Folks,

This is The Dance of Life, a fine painting by Edvard Munch. Edvard was my good personal friend through his adult life. He was not quite that cheerful fella but had some tendencies into depression. Edvard’s art represents the finest expressionism there was. However, he’s work for women’s equality is not that well known. Interestingly Madonna, who’s made a part of her lifework as a dancer, released a single – Express Yourself – in 1989. The song is an obvious hymn for gender equality. I bet Edvard would have loved Madonna’s tunes – he certainly loved to dance to an up-beat dance-pop. One of Edvard’s well known works is Madonna (1889). Actually there are several versions of Edvard’s composition Madonna, and the referred year of 1889 may not be accurate but I will not let it spoil a good story.

The Twelve Apostles Victoria

The Twelve Apostles – Victoria, AU

Hi Folks,

This is a cool place. No wonder though, it’s by the Southern Ocean and the breeze from Antarctica is rather cool. If you just happen to be cruising the Great Ocean Road, you might want to slow down around here. The rock stacks are soft lime stone formed by erosion. There’s only eight remaining of the Twelve Apostles, so go before it’s too late. The Twelve Apostles is a must see if you are anywhere near Victoria, Australia.

Cosmo McMurtry, Michael Parekowhai

Cosmo McMurtry – Michael Parekowhai

Hi Folks,

Please let me introduce you to the giant rabbit, my friend, Cosmo McMurtry. They say that immigration causes a lot of controversy in New Zealand. Rabbits are treated as if they were second class citizens. So, Cosmo took off and tours the world. As you may rememenber, I tried to visit Cosmo in Detroit but he had continued his journey to Australia. I met Cosmo in National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Unfortunately rabbits are not better off Down Under. I have heard that the Ozzies have built “rabbit proof fences” accross Australia. My message to the Ozzies is: Make love, not war; please take care of each other!!
