"To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy . . . is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them."— Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Ettamogah Pub

More to see in My World Tuesday.

Thank You Klaus and your dynamic team: Sandy, Louise, Wren, The Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

Founded in 1994, the Ettamogah Pub house is a cartoon inspired architecture, located in the Old Windsor Road, Rouse Hill. It is a bar  with a family restaurant and provides entertainment. Its ambience is relaxed, child-friendly and contemporary.
Stepping into an Ettamogah pub can be like walking into a cartoon, with their precariously balanced and gravity-defying walls, and life-sized models.



This picture was taken as we drove through  McDonald's to buy Happy Meals with a Shrek thingy as bonus. No, I have never been inside this pub yet. One day maybe. Enjoy McKays hamburger with us. You see, I am a cool Grandma! I eat McDonalds hamburger! haha

Pentacoloured Weekend Memes

Scenic Sunday
Scenic Sunday

My Scenic Sunday Participation (in a long, long time.)

A Modern Suburb with a Rural View


An idyllic setting in a fast modern changing times. This piece of farm is located across my daughter's house, a picture that I surreptitiously took between the blinds behind the bedroom glass door.  With the current expansion of the railway lines, and  busy construction of the pedestrian pavement going on to which is now open for passersby to use, I hope this green area with animals stock will not get affected by. I did not even realise there is a creek (again) until I have uploaded the photos in my computer. So it's a bit of a cheery surprise for me.

Sunday Bridges

Bridge Too Far


Bridge linking Liverpool and Macquarie Fields. I have to find out yet if this is the Cambridge Bridge flying over Glenfield Causeway, whatever that means. Glenfield causeway has been the most critical, undisputedly infamous and undoubtedly dangerous road and residents were clamoring the government to build this bridge.
Taken on a running bus.

Shadow Sunday

"Harriet's art themed musings; random off-track incidentals...and Shadow Shot Sunday. Every Sunday."~The Pride of Australia.


Lovely noonday shadow shot taken while aboard a suburban train to the city. The tall building beside this shadowy boot park is the Casula Powerhouse.

Weekend Nature
Winter Green after the Rain


In chemistry, as an oil, Wintergreen is known as Methyl Salicylate. It is an essential oil useful for aromatherapy massage for joints and muscles. But not in this case. Winter Green is only my description of this particular countryside green view while boarding the train to the city. This is in Warwick Farm before Liverpool.

old letters


Gemma's "Greyscale Territory New Meme .... What's in your Mailbox?

I got a letter the other day ....nah... long ago.

What a wonderful thing is the mail, capable of conveying across continents a warm human hand-clasp. ~Author Unknown

The Horizon of Skywatch t'wards Friday Sunset and Weekend Reflections

My SWF on this new meme blog
Thanks to our Host Klaus and his energetic team: Sandy, Sylvia, Wren, Fishing Guy and ...Louise. Look UP!

The fascinating mood and character, beauty and glum, and temper and splendour of the sky are limitless beyond anyone's grasp of understanding how nature's work. It's wonders are God's work of art as Ralph Waldo Emerson attested. Scientists, poets and enthusiasts unite in their quest for answers to their questions and passion of the sky.

The first three photos were taken yesterday after series of rainy days that soaked us wet in our area. Then this bluish day as blanketed with beautiful clouds became the air playground of these most welcome engined critters in the sky so engaging!

Across the horizon
Given angel's wings, where might you fly?
In what sweet heaven might you find your love?
Unwilling to be bound, where might you move,
Lost between the wonder and the why?...
~Nicholas Gordon,
Between symmetrical lines
The modern airplane creates a new geographical dimension. A navigable ocean of air blankets the whole surface of the globe. There are no distant places any longer:the world is small and the world is one. ~Wendell Willkie
On a safety net
I never liked riding in helicopters because there's a fair probability that the bottom part will get going around as fast as the top part. ~John Wittenborn
