Those Australian Fire Pictures.

I am sure that we know by now that the most horrendous fires have burnt to a cinder a fair proportion of the state of Victoria in Australia.
No doubt there will be horrific and devastating pictures of the destruction available on the net in due course, if they are not already available.
I thought I would attach a photo sent to me by one of my fans of the Victorian countryside when the fires were first being reported.
I am unaware to to the resolution of the photograph or the zoom height in miles but it resembles the 50 mile high resolution you can get with Google Earth.
I don't know how many fire victim funds there are but the Red Cross is always a safe bet.
If anyone would like to donate to the Red Cross fund that has been set up they can do so here

Upton Inn Announces First Birthday Party

It will be as it says in the advert.
However there will be the added bonus of seeing Jamie drooling and fondling with his microphone when all my model girlfriends turn up and drape themselves all over me on table 25.

Come one come all, everyone is welcome to come and celebrate what is going to be one hell of a first Birthday bash.

See you all there.

Ever been to the (Motor) Races?

Have you ever wondered what a real live racing car circuit is like?

I am of course an advanced driver and I have driven some really fast and expensive cars in my time but I have never visited a racing circuit like Brands Hatch or Silverstone.

Being an International Jet-setter, with a round the world lifestyle, I recently travelled to Australia to attend the International Licensed Victuallers Association's "World Happy Hour Rules" summit. (a very important American lady, whose a bit of an old soak on the side, was there by the but this spoons too much of a gentleman to name her at this time as she is in recovery from loosing a certain nomination)
Anyway, my lady friend is a bit of a racing fan and she suggested a trip to Phillip Island Race track.

Phillip Island is one of the greatest MotoGP tracks in the world . The fast flowing nature of the 4.448 km circuit is apparently the reason that makes Phillip Island one of favourite MotoGP tracks among riders for the last 15 years. The one big drawback can be weather on this outpost of Victoria coastline . Heavy rain and winds can cause chaos at this time of the year to the Island, which is linked by a bridge to the mainland, some 100 kms south of Melbourne.

If you ever get the chance I would thoroughly recommend you visit the centre, take the tour and look around.
