In March we visited Sea World and the beach at the Gold Coast
This photo was taken by James Whitehead before Christmas last year and gifted by his family to Anna for her 2nd birthday (it is sitting on the mantle).
Taken by Grandpa on 27th Feb.
Many of you would be interested in this Lord of the Rings quiz. It was written by one of my project team members.
For the record I got 100% for the easy quiz (20/20), 55% for the medium quiz (11/20), & 25% for hard quiz (5/20).
I can say that I am quite comfortable in not knowning the answers that I got wrong.
Yesterday dad and I participated in a cycling event called Amyâ€™s Ride which is named after Amy Gillett who was killed in Germany 2005 by a motorist. The primary objective is to foster a shared respect between cyclists and motorists on the road.
I have always found this ride challenging as it follows December, Christmas and New Years celebrations which invariably means little or no cycling for around 4 weeks.
Fortunately the weather was very kind yesterday and we both comfortably completed the ride. For those interested here are the ride statistics from Dadâ€™s trip computer for the past three rides.

This is a photo of me after the ride yesterday where I briefly shook hands with Cadel Evans and he signed my cycling jersey.
I guess I better get back to pounding out the kâ€™s on the bikeâ€¦.
Last night we had a quiet dinner for the 3+1 of us (well as quiet as it can be with Anna!).
I cooked the full meal on my Christmas present and it turned out rather well. Roast Chicken with corn, potatoes, carrots, beans and mushrooms, with Bread and Butter pudding for dessert. Yum.
I took the second photo with the tripod and RF remote (if that was not already obvious). Anna really does enjoy corn on the cob!
