Here I am in Sydney, glad that I don't live here. Townsville Brass is doing quite well here at the Nationals and you can see the results after sunday afternoon.
I was going to pick the post that I have mulled over the most that had not got any comments and my New year stuff was the most recent. I will have to look further afield for more.
08/08/08 still marks for me the end of the good times in the same way the stockmarket crash of October 1929 marked the end of the roaring twenties, and the start of the slide into deep recession/deflation/increasing instability.
