Christmas is more commercial than ever. It seems that shops are more and more desperate to get us to spend big on presents, but there is little meaning behind the glitz. Even the Christian message about the birth of Jesus barely gets a mention.
There are cultures where Christmas is just another festival the way that [...]

IMG_5304

The suburb of Cook, located in the Belconnen region of Canberra, is jointly named after former Prime Minister Sir Joseph Cook, and voyager Captain James Cook.
Cook is quite an unassuming little suburb. Squished in between Aranda, Macquarie/Jamison and Weetangera, I’d never visited here before (besides a drive through one evening to drop a friend home). [...]

The suburb of Farrer in the Woden Valley is one of those unassuming suburbs. I hadn’t heard of it until about a year ago, and I always thought it was part of Tuggeranong. The suburb’s namesake, William James Farrer, was a pioneer of scientific wheat breeding and his work gave lead to the breeding of [...]
