I hope I win at least some of the money in the $90 Million Oz Lotto on Tuesday night. I need it for my retirement and future travelling.

This site shows world-wide Hurricane names
for the next 5 years 2009-2014
Hurricane

The only time that there is a change in the lists is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. If that occurs, then at an annual meeting by the WMO committee (called primarily to discuss many other issues) the offending name is stricken from the list and another name is selected to replace it. Most damage to land occurs when there is a shallow water surge.

Shallow Water Surge.
Surge I

A post from the "The musings of a green knee capping leprechaun" blog
….google your name, beginning with “unfortunately________” filling in your name and see what pops up.

My wanderings found these ...

Unfortunately, Frances
Unfortunately, Frances nipped at the ankles of three clients, and CARE 66 administrators began to view Frances as a liability ...

Unfortunately, Frances thought the fairy was leaping on to her face, the action was so vigorous ...

Robert Carr fell in love with Frances - the daughter of Thomas Howard, Earl of Suffolk. Unfortunately Frances was already married to the Earl of Essex


Fortunately, Frances
Fortunately, Frances was able to drag herself out of bed, and once we dumped some ice tea down her gullet, she was ready to go

Fortunately, Frances and her mother did find another way. They found out that excessive sweating is a medical condition

Fortunately, Frances did not impact South Florida with severe winds and rain and people started believing a hurricane threat was nothing more than a media ...

Pass it on ...

Exhibition Hall at Darling Harbour, Sydney
ExHib Ctr Darling Harbour
where the Australia's No.1 - Craft and Quilting Fair was
held this week. I was so overwhelmed by the huge
collection of entries that I forgot to take photos,
it was a quilty-crafty person's heaven.
Craft Expo DH

No sure why this big red wheel is located at DH,
a new amusement for the kiddies ... maybe.
Big Wheel DH

After the Fair I rushed up to Central Station to meet
my eldest son,we wandered off to Chinatown for a meal,
then I headed back to Central Station to catch
the train up the coast and home.
Central Station
There was trackwork further north so the timetables
were 'shitty',I had to wait 45 minutes before
the train left to take me home.
A long day.

First day of two weeks holidays ...Today- Saturday,
I have already washed the new car,
Hyundai Getz 2009 21 May 09
(My new car - Hyundai Getz 2009 - a lovely drive.)

mowed the back yard,
started to demolish a old cubby house,
washed my bedroom curtains and sheets,
moved a dressing table out of son's room and into
the spare room and started to strip it back to stain/paint,
stopped for lunch ...whew...

at this rate I will have renovated the whole house
by the time I get back to work. lol

The dressing table is for my room...
can't decide whether to re-stain it
or paint white to match side tables in room
... decisions, decisions.

Trying to decide on a cruise for later in the year. A Diamond Princess cruise looks good, departing from Yokohama, Japan on a 15 night round...
