Centenary of Canberra Rally heads to Old Parliament House

By 8 October 2013

The Centenary of Canberra Rally doesn’t appear to be a race, which is a shame.
A procession of cars will be driving at reasonable speeds from Jervis Bay to Old Parliament House, and probably none of them will be going sidewards at any point.
Disappointing Canberra.
That being said if looking at old cars is you thing, you [...]

New opening for weather presenter

By 27 April 2012

Just reminded by the radio presenter that Mark Carmody leaves ABC weather today. Some may cheer and some may actually miss him, but who will replace him?

The ABC types are getting excited on Twitter about the departure of the in equal parts loved and loathed Mark Carmody from the evening news:

Tonight, after Virginia’s introduction of “foggy weather” was followed by Mark immediately mentioning the “foggy weather”, VH thanked him after the report for his [...]

Can you believe it: news being about news, weather being about weather, without patronising attempts at humour, self obsession, vegetable obsession, whatever.
You know what I’m talking about: Mark Carmody,  Mr Fosts and Frogs, presently [...]

Flower guy weather man

By 2 September 2008

This may have been covered before, but what are the views out there on the ABC’s flower-guy weather man?
My 2c? – He should have his own comedic gardening show.
He reminds me of Edwin Maher, former ABC Melbourne weather guy. He was famous for having a different pointer each day. people used to send them in [...]
