Nasa's Earth Observatory has a great satellite photo of Zurich today.
I noticed that IT'S A MATTER OF OPINION WEBLOG has a link to me. Thanks guys!
Sad news today: My iPAQ met with misadventure yesterday. Serious misadventure. Terminal serious misadventure. Screen smashed, case bent etc etc. It has been really strange, because I keep going to look up stuff in it, but then I remember that it's dead.

I went to a church picnic on Friday afternoon/evening wearing my geocaching t-shirt. OK, so it is slightly cryptic, but one of the kids worked out what it was straight away, where the adults were left scratching their heads. I wandered off with a couple of kids to drop off a travel bug in a nearby cache. A nice quote from an 8 year old on geocaching: "Do they have these in every park?"

I found a great site about bushwalking today: The Australian Bushwalking & Camping
Reference Site
. There are lots of great walks on the site all over Australia.

Be afraid. Be very very afraid. Neighbours is going to be shown in the US.
After a couple of days of down-time, it seems that Weather Pixie is back.

I don't think I have posted about this before, so here's a quick overview: For years there have been reports of a large cat (lion, panther, cougar etc) running wild somewhere in Sydney's west. Every now and then there is some story about it in the news. I believe the NSW government has now hired someone to look into claims.

My thoughts? Of course there is a man eating cat running wild!

The latest? They found paw prints.

Cache update: I somehow managed to do Leighton parks here and DoverKog Bay over the last couple of weeks.

OK, so I've been a bit slack lately. Sorry that my first post for more than 2 weeks is only for a couple of URLs, but they are great URLs:

On the weekend the Sydney Morning Herald ran a great checklist to help you know if you are a real Sydneysider. "Don't dare call yourself a local until you've ticked off this list."

And in other news ... animal noises for ella. Click, watch, & listen. Quite funny.

I had the day off yesterday, so I went and picked up my GPS reciever that GME had kindly replaced (under warranty) for me.

We finally got the forward facing car seat installed for our little bundle of joy. He really enjoys being able to see what is going on. It's a whole new world!

The afternoon brought a visit to Wet or Dry #2, my 50th geocache!!! (Woohoo!) Closely followed by DoverKog Bay and then M5 madness.

We visited various family members in Canberra on the weekend, and acted as a courier service for various birthday presents, one of which was a GPS receiver. The recipients found their first geocache that morning. Good work!
