The western suburbs of Melbourne is home to a large proportion of heavy industrieswarm summers night yeah 2

I walked in the opposite direction to see the more local industries.street scene in HanoiAdded for Ailsa’s Industry theme. See more here.

Share Your World – 2015 Week #3

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

Most certainly not someone famous. It would be all about them. I’d like one of you bloggers out there. A kind of lucky dip! Jo would like Johnny Depp. There’s an answer.

When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

I can’t sing first thing in the morning because everyone’s asleep. Last night I did. Of course there’s always a song going in my head. The current one is “Anytime at all” by the Beatles. I last sung to someone else on Saturday with the Tangleweeds

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

I would like the ability to stay focussed, and like it.

What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

Nothing is too serious to be joked about. When, how and why are other questions with not necessarily the same answer.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful that my son got a placement in a University to continue his studies. I am looking forward to going to our beach caravan setup next week.


I could not help be reminded of the fantastic 1997 Australian film “The Castle” which may be lost on non-Aussies. I have not enough serenity in my life lately, so this theme could not be more timely. I have many serenity photos, so it was a struggle to decide which one, or more, to add. One it will be though. The serene Lake Eucembene in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia.
