These are the somewhat random and often scattered thoughts of the Marr family members about almost anything - what we are currently doing on the web, recent outings (as distinct from being 'let out'), any interesting stoushes we have had or are trying to have with any one or thing that annoys us, things happening around us, etc. etc.

We're in - and almost organised ......
We've been in the new house for just over two weeks now - delay on reporting due to problems getting phone & internet connected (see follow-up messages re the bouquets and brickbats of the shift - mostly bouquets, very few brickbats).
Been fishing once (not even a bite) and hope to get down to the river later today to try again - it's so close and easy, you've gotta love it.
Have updated a number of furniture items to fit in with the new set-up. Bought a 40inch Sharp Quattron full HD TV, so have discarded the old TV unit in favour of a smaller, less intrusive one. Built some matching tables and a computer workstation - I am thinking of hiring myself out as an "Allen key" expert having become quite accomplished at putting all this stuff together. All I know is the whole damn place seems so comfortable, not to mention sparkling new.
Starting to get "The Shed" set up as well. Built a couple of work benches in there and am in the middle of erecting peg-board to house and display my copious collection of tools. Need to get the electrician back to put in a couple of power points and light, but that should be pretty straight forward.
Austar, TV antenna, phone and internet are all up and going, so the services side of living is pretty well taken care of. Still need to hang a few pictures, including Robbie's Olympic relay torch. Guess I'll just have to find the time between fishing and staring quietly and contentedly from the pergola. Lots of happy 'sighs' can be heard from the premises.
Phone number and e-mail addresses have not changed. Our new address is:
L107/125 Jubilee Park Road,
ALLANSFORD, Vic., 3277
At this stage have to say it's been a huge success and we couldn't be happier. Plenty to do, not because things HAVE to be done, but simply at our leisure and because we WANT to do them.
