    I chatted to this guy while flying his home made job, wears goggles so he can only see what the chopper see's via it's camera. Really cool. He also did the footage for rally of canberra. Flew when the wind grounded the real chopper :eek1

    It's 3:30am and I cant sleep as my head is filled with thoughts for the people who were killed or injured in the Boston bombings yesterday.
    My heart goes out to them, to their friends and family.

    I can't comprehend why anyone would carry out such an act of violence.

    SJ.. these people don't think like you and I. I am guessing they are arab terrorists who hate the freedom that we in the "west" enjoy.. but they are happy to make use of our technology and especially science and medicines.

    Typically they hate the Jewish people.. and when you consider that over 80% of all medical breakthroughs are made by Jewish scientists in the USA this is just incredible.

    These "people" live where there is no separation between the church and the state. They want the rest of the world to live in the middle ages like them.

    While I am opposed to capital punishment, I would make an exception for them. They cannot be reasoned with as they themselves are not afraid to die.

    The people of the free world must drive them back to their sand pit and contain them there. It is the only way the rest of us can be safe.

    We must be eternally vigilant.. especially here in Australia.

    Take care mate.

    Thanks HS

    I'll leave it to others to work out who the perpetrators of this terrible act are.

    My oldest boy runs marathons. Maybe that has brought this closer to home for me.

    My thoughts are with the Richard family.

    Sadly, those who profess to most love the state are often the biggest enemies of the state.

    There's now no reason the boardrooms of corporate Australia shouldn't be dominated by women.
