Fun with genetics


Party sparklers on steroids. Lawnton on a Saturday night 🙂12seconds.tv

“What’s a sparkler bomb got to do with genetics”, you ask.

Towards the end, after the “sparkles” there’s a whispery high pitched laugh, a bit like “Mutley” on 70’s cartoon “Whacky Races”. That’s me. But what’s wierd is it’s how my Dad laughs too, especially at something “Naughty”. I’m sure if he had popped over here last night, we both would have been laughing like this!

I love Dad, so it’s always fun to discover something else I have in common with him.

Oh, and by the way, well done on the fireworks boys! The neighbors probably think we’re forcing down the price of real estate in the area, but you demonstratred a good grasp of physics and chemistry to pull off such a spectacular display.

And Jonno, my son, I’m really proud of your most recent bass guitar performance on this video. Nice to know we share some music genes, although yours seem to have mutated from Jazz into Heavy Metal.

I should mention that your bass guitar broke shortly before this performance, so you were playing on a totally unfamiliar instrument.

Well done mate.

Genetics can be nightmarish at times, but I think these two videos demonstrate that it can be fun too!

Redcliffe Sunset

I never thought you’d be able to see the sun set over the water in South-East Queensland, considering the fact that it’s on the east coast of Australia.
I took this photo of the sunset from Scarborough on the northern tip of the Redcliffe Peninsula across the road from the Marina, looking north-west over Deception Bay.
It’s much more picturesque when you see it with your own eyes – the Glasshouse Mountains off to the north (not visible in this photo) look spectacular.
I can’t think if many other places in the area where you can see sunsets over the water like this from the mainland.
Well worth the effort!

We visited the “Festival of Sails” at Redcliffe on Friday and watched the launch of the annual Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race.
The place was packed with visitors, but one thing that really impressed us was this sand sculture of a Dragon and some Dolphins. The Dragon has some file coming out of his nostrils. It looks amazing.
Dennis Massoud, aka “Sandman”, who does these sculptures is there every year, and he’s available for parties and functions. He’s a world champion at his craft.
