    Gateway Bridge
    This was the scene yesterday as runners and walkers welcomed the duplicated Gateway Bridge in Brisbane. Hopefully this will resolve what have been some massive bottleneck problems there. I might be driving over the new bridge in June.

    There is nothing to Crow about in footy results at home, but I am certainly celebrating Chelsea's FA Cup win!


    1. Wow. 3:26 marathon split! Was Kelley trying to get to the showers before Mick?

      My rival Jim W was Crowing about the Bombers!

    2. Yes the Bombers might be worth following should the other good teams bomb out.
