Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' is an imaginative telling of the World War 2 evacuation of hundreds of thousands of trapped allied forces from the Belgian port.

Comparatively short for a war movie and mostly without dialogue 'Dunkirk' comprises three separate but linked stories. The main story is of the week long efforts to evacuate forces from the beach. A second story focuses on a single day when one family owned leisure craft sets out to participate in the rescue efforts. A third story represents just one hour of activity by three British Spitfire ...

Just after I left the country for my holiday the first issue of QAMA Magazine was released and it is available to view on Issu, here.

My photos of Chris are just some of the images included in the magazine but I’m very proud to see that one of them made the cover. Doing an erotic shoot was new to me as I’ve mentioned before but I’m definitely keen to do more, as long as they are still creative and artistic.

Head on over to Issu and check out the full magazine. You may need to create an account but that’s free and I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy the

What's happening is wrong
Most of you dear readers don't do paid work. Some of you have retired partners. How do you fill in your time? How does your partner fill in their time. Have there been clashes and big adjustments once..........ok, I will be gender specific, once he stopped working and you found he cramped your style. You know, I married him for better or worse, but not for lunch.

R has adapted very well to retirement. He takes Mother out on Thursdays. Fridays he is a volunteer for about four hours to drive old and infirm to various places in a supplied car. About once a month on a Tuesday he takes oldies out in a minibus for a social lunch outing to a hotel or club well away from where they live in inner Melbourne and he gets a free meal. About once every month he has lunch with an old workmate. About every three months he and said workmate take former clients out for to the seaside and for lunch. Once a week he does the housecleaning and he does nearly all of the ...
I enjoyed our ten days in Bali more than I would have expected. It was a very leisurely holiday. Apart from two sightseeing excursions the rest of the holiday was centred on our resort area lazing by the pool and the beach, doing crosswords, gossiping, people watching and, of course eating. All our evening meals were taken in the vicinity of our resort on the beachfront at Sanur. All the meals were three courses. A starter, mostly soup, a main course and a dessert. All the meals were delicious or at the least entirely satisfactory. Not one of these meals cost more than $A20 each.

Breakfast was taken at a covered but wall-less area under a nearby Banyan tree which was a two minute stroll from our rooms. The grounds of the resort were vast and beautifully maintained and the pool refreshing. The rooms are rather tired and need considerable refreshing but they were spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Even with families present, the noise level was low and ...
Well, the current Australian Parliament has descended into quite a mess.

And it's all because of section 44 of The Constitution. Who would have thought? I don't even remember spending that much time studying that particular provision as an undergrad law student, although I do remember learning about the citizenship rule. Regardless, I bet law students (and their lecturers) across the country are having lots of interesting class discussions right now.

Malcolm Roberts from the One Nation party is an interesting case. I find it rather amusing that he is now having to 'defend' his allegiance to Australia, when the One Nation party has consistently made it their platform to spew the kind of divisive vitriol that has forced people like myself (i.e. migrant) to have to defend, time and time again, my own allegiance to Australia.

Just deserts.

A while back I posted a video from Timo Wilderness about Travelling Near. The idea is that adventures don’t have to be huge global things. Sometimes the best adventures are little ones.

I also pledged to try and do more regular vlogs of little adventures that I have in my own city and nearby. That is still very much my plan but I thought I’d also take requests and suggestions from you, my lovely readers about what you think those adventures could/should be. I will be finding my own adventures as well but is there something you’ve seen or done in Sydney that you think I should vlog about? Or for those of you that haven’t been to Sydney
