I finally got around to uploading my web page on bushwalking. So far only 2 walks: The Spit to Manly, and a section of the coast track in the Royal National Park. The page includes waypoint and track files to download for Ozi Explorer.

Well the last week has been busy. We ... um ... had a baby. Pictures here.

A move in the opposite direction: The Guardian reports that Singapore will once again allow Cosmopolitan to go on sale. It seems that due to a free trade agreement with the US, chewing gum is now also available, although only the sugar free type, and you need a prescription.
The SMH reports that Barbie has been outlawed in Saudi Arabia. While it might seem strange to an Australian to outlaw an institution such as Barbie, the Saudis' objections to Barbie are the same as people in many countries have been saying for years: Barbie has a well (some would say impossibly unrealistic) devloped woman's body, and she wears revealing clothes, thus giving children an unrealistic expectation of body image. I can safely say I never owned a Barbie doll. :)

Sydney's second flash mob happened last weekend. See the pictures here.
Ever wondered what Mike Moore is up to now? SMH tells all.

Some of the cool stuff you read on Avant Go. From this week's Guardian comes A guide for Beckham's Spanish teacher. Quite good.
