Some Australian Christmas Carols

Posted on 12/26/2008 in Personal

Our family had some fun this year and recorded some Australian Christmas Carols and put them on the web. My son certainly had the most fun, and really let it rip at the end...
Merry Christmas to everyone ...

New Blog for Bill Hutchison

Posted on 12/17/2008 in Personal

I have moved over to a self hosted blog at www.billhutchison.org.

I will be updating the RSS feed and e-mail subscriptions shortly, so if you are subscribed to this blog via FeedBurner then you will automatically start to receive any new posts from the new site.

The move is being made for multiple reasons, and should result in a better posting schedule for myself as it will be easier for me to do so.

Thank you for your patience and for reading this blog ...

Again, the new blog for Bill Hutchison is www.billhutchison.org.

Thank You to our Aussie Diggers

Shannon Noll in TownsvilleEarlier this year we went down to the Strand here in Townsville for a welcome home concert put on for Australian Soldiers who have served overseas in the last few years. Townsville is a "garrison" city, and a lot of our troops have been in Afganistan and East Timor in the last year. The city put on a well deserved concert and parade for them.

At the concert was Shannon Noll, Claire Clarke, Garry Bradbury, 1RAR band, and Beccy Cole. The music was fantastic and the general feel at the event was one to celebrate and thank the troops and their contribution to Australia and the world.

Beccy Cole in Townsville

I think that Beccy Cole's song "Poster Girl" highlights the general feel of most of us in Townsville towards the troops:

     

For that song Poster Girl Beccy Cole won three "Golden Guitars" for Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Female Artist of the Year. You can listen to more of Beccy Cole on her MySpace page here.

Note: The comedian Garry Bradbury was very inappropriate for a family event. His jokes may have been funny in the field for just the troops, but definitely not for all the kids at the event. He got very few laughs after the first few minutes.

My Latest Home Improvement Squidoo Pages

Posted on 7/29/2008 in Web Development

I've been trying to add content and stuff onto Squidoo, which is a site that allows you to create a "lense" about specific topics. I have been creating a few lately about different things I have blogs about, or write about on other sites.

Here is a list of Squidoo Lense that I am currently working on:
  • Renovating in Australia
    This is a page that features some of my more popular posts on my Renovation Site.
  • Townsville Builder
    Our builder here in Townsville does not have a web-site. I set this page up to highlight him and some of what he has done on our house. Working with him on our house has been a real pleasurable experience so far.
  • Termite Control
    Termites are a huge problem here in Australia. This is a page with some of what I have learned about them since owning a house and property in Australia.
It is actually quite easy to set-up Squidoo lenses about pretty much anything. If you are interested in creating your own lense then head over to Squidoo and sign up.

I have a few more lenses in the works, but these are the ones I have been working on recently. One of the ones that I plan to work on soon is for myself, Bill Hutchison. Because Squidoo ranks well in the search engines I hope to be able to set up the lense for my own name to rank well in the search engines so people can find me easily on-line.

No More Television - Again

Posted on 6/1/2008 in Unspecified

I have stopped watching television before, twice, but I've decided not to watch television any more unless it is with Tamara or the kids.

I think that I can to this decision when at 1:00am on Thursday last week I realised that I had just finished watching Stargate SG1 (good show, bad time slot). Rather than watching television that hour could have been put to much better use by doing pretty much anything, especially sleeping.

So I have done three things in the last week to help me make better use out of my time, and to help me get more sleep:
  1. No more TV unless I am watching it with Tamara or the kids.
  2. No more late night snacks or drinks,except on a painting night.
  3. I have set a "Go to bed" reminded on my computer for 11:30 so I don't loose track of time.
Well, the alert just came up, so I am off to bed, after gluing the wheel back onto Caleb's remote control car (Jessica threw it across the room!).
