{December 28, 2016}   “Christmas Lunch”

Christmas lunch this year was at Crown Casino we only had to wait one hour for the main course but apart from that the food was okay only minutes from walking out this was the menu—— thought I was in Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares given that we had been seated right next to their serving station and had pre-paid one waiter eventually asked had we had our main meal yet?

Bolobek – Mt Macedon one of the most picturesque places for gardens in Victoria.

Wonderful to visit some of my childhood places earlier this year we lived just down the road in McBean Avenue and spent many hours on this property whilst waiting for my dad to finish his job as a farmer at Bolobek looking after thousands of Sheep and Cattle on massive land I would sometimes swim in the pool that no longer stands because of fire having ripped through Macedon and Mt Macedon, disappointed the swimming pool was no longer  there because I am sure I would have jumped in it reliving some of those memories at just 12 years old the property was then owned by David Syme and company who used to own the Age paper here in Melbourne this was their weekend retreat,Macedon made even more famous now as being the home of this years Melbourne cup winner.

A privileged childhood we had close access to go Fishing/Rabiting/Shooting/space for all animals/Opportunity to learn to drive motor vehicles at a young age /back to Snow in the Winter months on the mountain top at Mt Macedon/a creek that ran the full length of the property where you could swim in parts I used to sail my little boats down stream so gum-boots were very much a part of my life and one of my brothers mates who owned a T/model Ford would sometimes drop us at the gate at Macedon state school where many kids were under the impression we were some kind of celebrities always would there be children lined up at the front of the school to greet us,all of my other 9 brothers and sisters were good at their chosen sports,dad played some musical instruments and mum had a delightful soprano like voice ,we would often hear her singing in the laundry when it came time to do the washing so much of it with that many kids I guess she had to entertain herself in other way’s married for 42 years.

 



{October 7, 2016}   ‘In Respect to Brocky’

Sharing a moment in time with this one of a kind oil painting portrait in Celebration of The Life of Peter Brock ,we can reflect back on those years when we watched one of our favourite Motor Racing champs in the winning circle time after time and remember many of the good times had by all with much joy and laughter he was a part of our lives in Motor Racing’s history that will never be forgotten,one personal comment I would like to add I know when I see a role model in sport I have alway’s said to myself I hope that person has plenty of children to follow in their footsteps oddly enough Peter didn’t and only produced 2 children, difficult to understand because he loved women and shared them freely wherever he went. I met him back in the 80’s and could see many likenesses between two people who had the same interests in the Motoring industry and Road Safety and thought we would make an awesome pair but I too shared the fact that I also loved men was a perfectionist and had a similar quick temper just like him in becoming very volatile at times so for those reasons alone I opted to shun him somewhat and left it at that we crossed paths many times where he always showed much respect and I often wondered should I have given it a go ? I had the opportunities—-

After watching part 1 of the Brock story on Monday the 9th October where I had previously read the book of similar circumstances you don’t really see the big picture from a book however now that the story has shown us the cold hard facts of his life I felt sick such sleazy happenings of the people around him between affairs with alcohol and orgies with wife and husband swapping Peter’s personal life really became a mess with his choice of partners so wrong for his well-being of which he expressed when I first met him in the 80’s there are now extended family members to consider so I won’t go into those facts but will say that he had not found his perfect match of which had affected him dearly.

Today the 7th of October 2016 also the closure of Ford Motor Company in Australia where I worked in 1976 and can express my love for the place of which I felt so much pride in being part of such a huge family with a very successful company we often wish things could stay the same but they don’t and it’s time to move on however in my heart I do not believe that our car manufacturers should leave and go overseas but we have to accept that.
