Rocky Crossing – Enjoying a Dip


This photo was taken at Rocky Crossing near the New South Wales town of Gloucester, in Australia. I’m cooling down after a hot day one Australian summer on a causeway.

Australia: Northern Territory – Kakadu National Park

This photo was taken during my first major trip around Australia in 1998. This photo was taken from near the plunge pool at Gunlom Falls. The plunge pool is a great place to relax and cool down on a hot summer’s day. It is also a safe place as far as crocodiles go.

Namo Web Editor


I used to use Windows Live Writer to update my various Blogs. I found it to be a very useful application/tool. However, as the number of posts in my Blog grew, I found that the software slowed down dramatically and it also began to play up on a very regular basis. Eventually I decided I needed to try something different. This process has interrupted my Blog posting for months and I have now settled on using the same software I use to maintain my various other websites – Namo Web Editor.

I use Namo Web Editor 2006 on my Windows 7 lap top without a problem and feel I have no need to upgrade to the latest version. However, I suspect that at some point I will probably do so and will very happily pay to do so. I believe that Namo Web Editor is a brilliant product and very easy to use.

To post to my WordPress Blogs, all I do is copy the HTML code and paste it into the HTML editor in my WordPress dashboard. On the dashboard I input the various post categories and tags, as well as set the time for my post (often posting for the future). This way I get my Blog post to look exactly as I wish it to look – especially given that I prefer a fully justified paragraph format.

PS: I wasn’t paid to advertise or comment on this product – I use it and love it.

Looking Down the Barrel

Today’s photo was taken at Fort Scratchley in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

The photo is taken while looking down the barrel of a cannon at the entrance to the historic fort.

Evernote – Remember Everything


Evernote is a web application that allows you to store everything that you need to remember, whether it is a few thoughts jotted down on a scrap of paper, a photo, a business card, newspaper article etc. There seems no end of possibilities for using Evernote.

    Some of the ways I’ll be using Evernote will be:

  • to keep a record of quotes from books I’m reading for easy recall (using tags and notebooks – basically a folder).

  • to keep scanned copies of articles from magazines, newspapers, etc – saves having to hold onto endless copies of magazines and papers, etc.

  • to keep copies of snail mail letters, bills, etc.

  • to keep copies of receipts I may need one day.

That is just a few ways I’ll use it – how about you?

Gloucester River Falls: Looking Further Down River


2007_0429_ 056

Today’s photo is another shot of the Gloucester River Falls area and is a view from the waterfall in yesterday’s photo. The view is of the river further downstream. It really is a beautiful location.

The climb from the waterfall to the base and further downstream can be a little tricky – especially when there has been some rain about and the river is running higher than normal.
