Travel







Sorry about the delay in posting new content here on the ‘Entertain Us’ Nation.  Since we’ve been back from holidays (just over a week or so now), a lot of effort has gone into writing up details of our travels for future reflection.  This has taken a lot of time.. […]

Aussie Wine Guy visits France




Hi All, This week I’m in Sydney until Wednesday night, so there’s a pause on new blog entries until I get back to Brisbane.  The flavour of this week is to spend as much time as possible doing face-to-face meetings and whiteboarding sessions to get new ideas, approaches and solutions […]

When in Sydney, do as Sydneysiders do?


Hi all.  So I know that I haven’t updated the blog since last Monday.  No, it wasn’t a case of pouting over Green Bay’s inexplicable loss at home to the New York Giants (although it still stings).    We just celebrated a national holiday in Australia – Australia Day – […]

Where have I been?

A Look Back



I’ve added three new photos to a new gallery..  It’s been a very busy two days including a 24-hour travel day on Monday.   Yesterday we went to the Hawaii Volcano National Park – a 2.5 hour drive from Kona/Keauhou Bay.   On the way we stopped off at various […]

Hawaii Pics Up

Farewell, San Francisco


Apologies in advance: this post was written over the course of this afternoon… We are standing on the terrace rooftop of Macy’s waiting for a table at the Cheesecake Factory. Below us is the famous Union Square; it sprawls across a city block, lit by a beautiful blue sky.  […]

Friday on my mind…



  Hi guys.  It’s approx 18:10 and Toni’s taken a quick snooze.  We were up and out the door by 8 AM this morning – tour to Muir Woods (Redwood reserve), Sausalito and the Uber-famous Alcatraz! Muir Woods reminded me of Stanley Park and Capilano in Vancouver.  Very pleasant.  Used […]

Behind bars.. The Rock


  WOW, finally have Internet access.  Haven’t fallen off the edge of the world, although we could have at the Grand Canyon.. We visited Lost Wages (Vegas) Monday thru to today.  Yesterday we visited Y Grand Canyon which was interesting.   Last night we saw ‘ka’ by Cirque du Soleil.  We landed in […]

Farewell, Vegas – Hello, San Francisco


Today we visited the Honolulu Zoo and Pearl Harbor.   There were thousands of people leaving Waikiki which made it very difficult to do anything.   In Pearl, we visited the USS Missouri, the battleship featured in 1991’s ‘Under Siege’ with Steven Segal.   Got to keep this brief, we’re in LAX […]
