Happy Chanukkah and Festive Seasons to all!

Well onto my latest post. I wanted to also post a picture of a Dreidel and a Chanukkaya which is a menorah with space for nine candles. Why nine candles you might well ask if you know that there are 8 days of Chanukkah? Well the ninth candle is the Shamesh or candle that is used to light the others because you are unable to use the candles for anything but to remember the miracle of Chanukkah.
This is a sunrise in a country NSW town. I want to try and get a sunrise picture in Melbourne too one day. I doubt it will have the colours of this picture but sunrise is a lovely time to be up.

The third POST & bye to Bigblog....

Well I have finally posted here again. I will have to become a more frequent poster and personalise my blog but also save it onto a CD. I lost 800 posts when I cancelled my bigblog blog.

I blogged for over a year on Bigblog and finally decided it was not worth it to post and put up with a lot of stuff and pay exhorbitant prices for very little.

The second pic is my son at about 18 month old and he is so cute.. Even cuter as he is graduating from Kinder tomorrow.
The first pic is Bobi.

A week or more ago we lost our husky dog Bobi. She had been with us for 12 years. So we are feeling a bit sad about it and not writing about it. That will come later. When the rawness and the freshness of the wound is not so deep or painful.

I tried to post a picture of her but with little success.

The Collectors!

I am nearly finished the first year of my CAE course in PWE. It has been interesting so far and I hope that I have developed a higher level of writing competence.
I am working on my second script called 'The Collectors' about this suburban Melbourne house where they have a skull in a flower pot near the front door. It is an open house and lots of strange people come and go. They collect lots of rubbish during periods of let's say, self medication. Some interesting language and the like.
My second script was dead. Two Roads would have to be a feature film to do it justice. It is not a short film. The trouble with the course is that we are required to write two short film scripts of 15 minutes each. I can not write short. I am a long winded, philosophical person an find the short film and short story format so restrictive. That is why I am disciplining myself to do it. It improves your expertise.

Hello this is my Third Blog!

Hello everyone hope this is a good place to blog and I am just wondering what do I do with this blog space. What do I fill it with?
Maybe it should be for Book and film reviews? I have to explore the other sites.
