You know when summer is really over when...

the coconut oil has solidified and you have to wear thermals to paddling!

PS. Today something terrible happened near my work. Rita and I usually loiter around the newsagency (to check out the latest interior design mags) and then we go next door to Gloria Jeans for coffee at around 11am. This morning Rita had a meeting and we didn't make it for coffee. It wasn't until 12 noon that we heard about the accident that occurred at 11.10am right on the corner where the newsagency and the coffee shop are. Everyone was in shock at work and we hope everyone makes it through okay (a 20 y.o woman passed away this arvo). It makes me want to hug everyone I love and be grateful just to be alive!

Hey Beck,

Yeah I know the same feeling. It's like you could have been there but by sheer coincidence you weren't.

When our apartment got broken into on Sep 11 2001 (I kid you not! Same day as World Trade Center). It was not till later that we realised that the guys who did it had actually taken knives out of the kitchen. Had we woken up earlier we could have been seriously injured or even dead.

Times like those makes you really respect life and those you love.

I'm glad to hear you missed out on the accident Beck.

I know the accident was terrible for the people that got hit, but I can't help but feel sorry for the driver... because it was an accident, and she was only a learner driver...


will she end up in gaol for manslaughter? and any other charges?
probably... yet another life ruined
