No photos today, sorry. Maybe I should have taken my camera to work and snapped a shot of the rain over the city...yep, it's raining again...woohoo! Hopefully, if this carries on we may get a real Wet in the summer to fill our dams...fingers crossed and entreaties to the rain god.

Today is the first anniversary of Steve Irwin's death...it's hard to believe it's a year already. However, our Wildlife Warrior will live on in his children, the work he started which is being carried on by people all over the world and every time we see a crocodile, whether a real one or a picture of one. Let's face it...crocodiles are evocative of Steve Irwin...he was so passionate about the ugly brutes...crocs rule! Who can forget the memorable..."Crikey! Take a look at this beauty!" We miss you, Steve, but not as much as your beloved family do.

I could be giving up going into the city to work soon. No, I'm not leaving. The group has taken on a new ophthalmologic surgeon, he starts in November. Trouble is, we're bursting at the seams and there's nowhere to put him. So, our practice manager is getting in a consultant to work out a more efficient plan for all the consulting rooms, various rooms for various tests, etc.
When I heard this, my first thought was, the work is going to increase and I could see myself going in three times a week. No way, Jose, I don't want to do that. My brain was working overtime and I eventually went and saw Peter, our practice manager, and put an idea forward to him. To my delight, he was very positive it about it.
It's this...I asked if I could do the work from home. I had thought it all out and, as I'm already set up for it with the other place, all that is needed is for me to access the server. Soooo, to cut a long story short, that may be happening in the not too distant future, although probably not until after Christmas as the new guy doesn't start until November...but one never knows.
I'm a very happy little Vegemite at the thought of not travelling into the city...I am totally fed up with close to two-and-a-half hours of travelling each day. Ok, it's only two days a week, but I could have done a fair amount of work in that time.

Just thought you bloggers in the States would like to know...Airforce One touches down at Sydney at about 10.00 pm with your President on board. He's coming for the APEC conference and the roads on the route he will be travelling have been shut down totally. There's a command centre at the Intercontinental Hotel and every single copper is on duty, the Australian Defence Force is involved and the protestors are out in full force. They'll be lucky to even get a sniff of the exhaust from his car!
That's it for today...take care and enjoy your week.
