The A and B of Adelaide take-away

The AB is an Adelaide junk-food institution consisting of chips and Yuros meat covered in a combination of garlic and chilli sauce with lemon juice drizzled over the top. Even if you don’t end up trying one, visiting the North Adelaide Burger Bar is a reminder of what a proper Fish and Chip Shop should be.

Running Into A World Of Your Own

I came late to running. I have always tried to keep pretty active and that often included running while training for football or hockey but it was only recently that I discovered the joy of running for its own sake.

Punting to West was more than just recreational. He loved it; loved the thrill of a big win. Loved studying the form lines, looking for something others couldn’t see. Punting defined his existence.

The house of my childhood is being demolished. Strangers in HiVis jackets and steel capped boots have already been through with sledgehammers and crowbars to gut the interior and once the bulldozer comes only a pile of rubble will remain.

Adelaide to Melbourne on The Overland

Interstate train travel in Australia isn’t undertaken for convenience or because it is the cheap option. It is by no means either. No, train travel in Australia is undertaken because that is the manner in which one prefers to travel.

One dollar. One spin.

Having visited a pub-TAB or two in our time, a few mates and I have developed a rule of thumb for betting on the pokies. It’s probably not going to solve problem gambling but it does provide a solid framework for shits and giggles.
