Dear Sir,
We would like to participat in fashion parrage. Kindly furnish us with the proceedor.

Regards,

I’m still trying to figure out what it means, but I suspect that it may have something to do with the fact that one of my web pages is currently in the Google top ten search results for “fashion parade”.

I was hooning along the North Western motorway when I noticed something slightly different as I approached the city. The exit formerly known as Grafton is now called Port. I’ll miss the Grafton signs – it’s a much more interesting word than plain old Port – but the fact is that that motorway exit will very soon be extended all the way down to the port.

So of course I had to venture down there. It’s quite exciting. The motorway now goes down Stanley Street about as far as the Caltex. I noticed an interesting detail on an overbridge. Instead of having slabs of plain concrete cladding the supports of the overbridge, the concrete had stylised leaf patterns imprinted in it.

I like going for random drives, so new roads are always exciting.
