U2 at Etiad stadium Melbourne

GeoTagged, [S37.80750, W145.02843]

It's been a good few years since I have seen U2, and it's been almost as long since I attended a stadium gig. Last night at Etiad was fabulous for one reason. My clever Hubbie got us into the claw!

Jay Z was like all rappers in a stadium setting - both pointless and lost.

I would have been happy to hang back - bit as we wandered the stadium floor Hubbie spotted a team leader who offered an alternate viewing spot that turned out to being the jaws of the claw - so we got excellent views when U2 walked round; and a reasonable view of the band from the back.

Australian beer

So it's really interesting to find that, contrary to the rest of the world, where there is any interesting and informative fact or question on the lolly stick ( and by the way that means an icy pole with rather than lilly as in sweetie or gumdrop) here in Australia beer cans come with quiz question in the cap. Hoe Aussie is that!

Massage Therapy

So here in Australia we have these little shops full of nice Vietnamese people who gave you really really hard Chinese massage it's all elbows forearms. So in the local shopping centre there are probably four of these shops now it's a great massage it really works you might be a bit bruised for a couple of days after but apparently no worse than the local physiotherapists is likely to make you feel the really good thing is its cheap it's quick and it does get all the knots in the your back or shoulders or even in your feet

Hard Rubbish

So a big advancement in Australia well in Melbourne at least is the Hard Rubbish collection from the street. Put your large rubbish, old furniture and outdated technology out on the footpath and its collected by the council. Better yet they give you a week or so's notice so the neighbours can pick over your leavings and recycle anything useful.

In a place where the Fire Brigade and Ambulance charge if you call them out - I am not sure the free redistribution of old telly's, pc's and dining suites replaces real public services; but it certainly provides fun with spot the best shelving unit or printer you can salvage for cartridges!

A life less cluttered

Since I had to shed pretty much 40 years of accumulated 'life' when I moved to Australia I have tried to 'live a less cluttered life'. Well I love these 100 things to help you accomplish this. Now if only the GAB would take them on board!
