The lead up to February 14 is always an interesting time for me. As I was shooting across the sky atop a prismatic zephyr recently, I found myself pondering the true meaning of Valentine’s Day.
Cruising around the virtual world of the Internet looking for the origins produced some surprises. Apparently Saint Valentine was just . . . → Read More: Saint Valentine’s Round-Up
I have always loved Australia Day. For reasons even apart from the beer and BBQs, the Hottest 100, and a day spent in the sunshine. Celebrating the freedom, the cultural mix, our sporting enthusiasm, and the way we laugh at everything.
