Song of the week: Fix You, by Coldplay in 2005. Video at http://youtu.be/JI-o25K6B-E
This is the best song ever written, It's amazing how meanings can change as times and circumstances also change. "Fix You" is particularly poignant today. Also, some nice running by lead singer Chris Martin in the middle of the clip. Pump up the volume and revisit your emotions!
Play it again Sam
Speaking of emotions, a neat quote from Serena Williams in the middle of her losing the US Open final to Aussie Sam Stosur. "Don't take the point off me for expressing myself. I'm an American". That just about sums it all up, doesn't it? Times change.
Food: Dinner on the 21st
Please let me know by this Thursday if you are coming to the speedygeese dinner on the 21st. So far we have 13 yes's, 13 no's, and 4 maybe's. There will be caramello koalas! Some things don't change.
Wine: Jamieson’s Run Cabernet Shiraz Merlot is a nice drop! Just saying that.

Springing into spring
For a change, I'd like to get a whole lot of speedygeese joining me on the Saturday morning run from the Ferry Terminal. That is, if you're not going to Sydney for the marathon or the half marathon, as several are.
Loving the downhill finish
