The Writing is on the Wall
Friday, April 28, 2006
This is one of the courtyards from where I went to Secondary (High) School in Loganlea.
We had many buildings all separated by covered walkways that mainly had specific uses. One of the buildings was for science, one was for english etc.
Our school system is Kindergarden, Prep. for 1 year (Starts in 2007 & used to be Pre-school), Primary School (7 years), Secondary School (or High School, 5 years) & University or T.A.F.E. (Technical And Further Education).

More local art
It has a lot of those half balls that spin in the wind to measure wind speed, although these aren't connected to any measuring device.
I like the way it is made into a tree where wind would usually blow through leaves and create a nice effect, just like when the wind devices spin around.

I still haven't gone to the Sunshine Coast yet to get the Big Lawnmower, so I thought I would look around for some of the local "big" things.
This is Golf World Superstore at Springwood just off Moss Street. Moss street is popular for all the car (and bike) enthusists as most of the long street has shops devoted to them.
I think even Tiger Woods would be hitting a par 100 using this ball, if you could even get it in the hole.

A new bridge
Thursday, April 13, 2006
Over twenty years ago there wasn't much in this area. Now everything is coming here. With the major University and other schools here, you could complete your whole education at places 5 minutes drive from each other. The Gold Coast fast train and the Air Train (that goes to the airport) stops here and a few years ago we finally got a McDonalds.
Now we get variety as a couple of weeks ago we got a Red Rooster restaurant. Now I have a choice if I am too tired to cook dinner and want fast food. Notice the sign to the left that says "Baguettes to go".

This is our normal fire truck (or fire engine) that was on display (there wasn't any fire).
Recently the lights on the top of the truck changed from red only to Red and Blue. This is so all our emergency vehicles (including the police which were the only ones with the red and blue lights) look the same when there lights are flashing and they are coming up behind your car.
It was common for people not to get out of the way of just the red lights, but when they see the red and blue, which they think are police, they get out of the way.

Griffith University, Logan Campus opened in February 1998 giving Logan City a major University.
I tried to get the building in the background, but there were too many trees in the way so I took a photo a bit off the side to get all the words in.
Click here to see a photo near opening day that shows the photo I wanted. More from here later on.

Big Storm - 1 month anniversary
The theme of this photo goes back to my first post when I went down to see the old road flooded during the constant rain. We had a strong storm that had hail and knocked out power to many houses. It was short and this is the leading edge of the storm.
I then had to get inside as it started raining.
This is my one month anniversary!

Kingston Pigeon Club
Saw these guys chatting outside the Kingston Pigeon Club. They were jesturing with their hands forming box shapes to describe something, as though to say "The Pigeon was this big...". I wonder what they really talk about?
I was very nervous taking this picture and had to park a distance away and use zoom. Nice car though.
