Tomorrow there will be a lot of young, drunken, yob idiots walking around, using Australia day as an excuse to abuse, verbally or physically, people with cultural backgrounds different than their own.

It sickens me. To me these 'patriots' are the unAustralian ones. They are thugs looking for an excuse to belt someone, and Australia Day is a handy excuse because it's so very easy - pick on the people who don't look like you.

When I was droving I worked and lived amongst yobs and bogans and thieves and murderers, and most of them, while still maintaining aspects of the low level racist attitude they were brought up with, actually got along well with 'new-Australians.' Rambly, badly thought out, almost stream-of-consciousness post below the cut. It will probably irritate some of you, but you'll have to live with it. )
Having noticed that I have picked up a lot of Russian folks who have found me through the photo-blogs, I just thought I'd use Babelfish to say "Hello" to you all and thank you for your continued interest in my pictures.


Замечающ что я выбирал вверх много русских людей которые находили я через фото-блоги, я как раз думал I' польза Babelfish d сказать " Hello" к вам всему и вы для вашего продолжаемого интереса в моих изображениях. Приветственные восклицания, Дэнни

Anyway, here are the first batch of photos from [livejournal.com profile] gutter_monkey's and my trip from Melbourne to Canberra. Some of these you will have seen on Scott's journal, and his facebook, but for the rest of you, here they are... 13 pictures below cut )

* Between Lex and selling stuff, I've had bugger all time to post. So here are a bunch of things I wanted to do proper posts about. Nothing of vital importance in here, move along... )

I thought I'd make some small changes to the rather American-centric meme that circulated recently. Oh, it had stuff from other places in the World, but there was an awful lot of US stuff there. Once I started though, I decided instead that it should become a really Australian meme. So here you are...

Mark which of the following you've experienced... )

Various photos from the last few months beneath the cut One shot with some fairly inoffensive nudity. )
It's taken a couple of months, but I've finally gotten around to sorting the pictures from my last day on the train to Perth. A trip which was paid for by many of the people who read this LJ, so thank you once again.

Follow the links to see pictures from days one and two.

This day was the most interesting for me, because I got to stop at Cook, a town I've never been to. Yay! Lots of pictures below the cut... )
A brief post for the many, many people who said we couldn't travel to remote places with Lex.

Post-Melbourne trip, my son, at 8 weeks, has seen more of the country than most of the people who offered me this advice, and we aren't home yet. Interestingly we have discovered travelling with him so far inland is no different than travelling with him from Canberra to Melbourne was.

10,000 years ago we all used to be nomads, yet somehow we managed.

And I have the Belwood!

A quick selection of pictures of places he's been, below the cut.Read more... )
Due to my various computer hassles, mixed in with being stroke boy, and being forgetful, I haven't gotten around to sorting/coverting these until now. Late nights with Lex can be good sometimes :)

This is the first day of travelling, and the pictures are in chronological order, so you get a sense of the journey...

Many pics below cut... )

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] oothoona sent me an email yesterday that happened to mention the Kambah Pools, so that's where Sharon and I ended up spending some time today. It was watery, shady, and lizardy! Thanks Oo!

8 pictures below the cut Read more... )
And eleven pics from the actual day of actual birthday under the cut... Read more... )
Yes, more shots. Below the cut are seven piccies of the garden behind the Eucla Hotel Motel. Read more... )

I woke up for the first time in this house. Since then I think I've been in Canberra for a little over half that period.

I like Canberra, but moving has really re-awoken my wandering spirit...
