Books, glorious books!

Am having a ball trawling through new-old history books I picked up for a song at the Prahran Mechanic's Institute, plus the library books I borrowed from them, too.
1984 Tina Turner was at the top of the Oz charts for one whole week with "What's Love Got To Do With It?"
1994 Vancouver-designed fantastically wonderfully all-things-geeky, fabulous ( yes we all loved it to bits and pieces in this house) cartoon series ReBoot debuted on American ABC
2006 Tongas King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV passed away in Auckland.

The Nylex Clock is still busted.
Yellow = New Zealand
Orange  = Canada

Anything outrageous is usually sarcasm and/or humour


  1. Re-Boot! My kids loved it! Me too, although I didn't see much of it.
