Whinge, whinge, whinge … we’ll all be rooned!

I sing in the car. Nothing special about that you might think. Lots of people sing in the car. But I drive a convertible, and I don’t sound like Amy Winehouse. As a matter of fact, unlike all the Idol wannabes, even my mother has never told me I sing well. And my kids find …

A star team will always beat a team of stars

I wonder how Matt Giteau and James O’Connor feel right now. It’s no secret I’m not (and never have been) Quade Cooper’s biggest fan. As a matter of fact I’m right at the top of the list of people who think he’s the most overrated player around. And I can guarantee after the last few …

Do young women really need botox?

I’ve been catching up on all the Brownlow medal information. A bit late, I know. What can I say except I don’t follow AFL and I don’t live in Melbourne. My major interest – as with a lot of women I’m sure – is what all the WAGs are wearing. The big surprise this year …

It’s winter and I’m cold

I’m living with the heater nazi. Doc, as I’m my partner will henceforth be known in this blog, doesn’t feel the cold, so doesn’t think anybody else should either. Everytime I put the heater on he gives me “that” look. The one where he’s desperately trying not to roll his eyes. Though sometimes he can’t …
