Mount Majura

On Thursday afternoon I went for a walk up Mount Majura.

Mount Majura is a relatively steep mountain behind Mount Ainslie, and is slightly taller. The highlight of Mount Majura in my view is the Canberra Airport Radar which sits next to the summit. There is a road to the summit from Majura Road, however it is blocked by a locked fence near the bottom.

I started my walk from the Mount Majura Nature Reserve entrance on Antill Street. The full set of photos is available on the photo gallery at http://photos.samuelgordonstewart.com/Mt-Majura-20070830 and I have included a few highlights below.

Blowing up suspicious objects

Good morning Tim,

Your short amusing comment at the start of the show about not parking your car in any "suspicious" places near APEC in case the police decide to blow it up raised a point that I have brought up on a number of occasions.

Why do the authorities blow up things ir order to see if they're explosives? Surely there has to be a better way to examine suspicious packages. Just imagine for a moment if a powerful explosive was left somewhere and the authorities decided to blow it up in order to dispose of it…the devestation such an act could cause would be horrendous.

As I said, there has got to be a better way to deal with suspicious objects than blowing them up…if not for the sake of saving someone's lost luggage, then for the sake of not accidentally causing a much larger problem.

Regards,

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week the award goes to Olivia Newton John, and the feature song is one which I consider to be a highlight of her repertoire, “Let Me Be There”

Wherever you go
Wherever you may wander in your life
Surely you know
I’ll always wanna be there
Holding your hand
And standing by to catch you when you fall
Seein’ you through
In everything you do

Let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever’s wrong and make it right (make it right)
Let me take you through that wonderland
That only two can share
All I ask you is let me be there (oh let me be there)

Watching you grow
And going through the changes in your life
That’s how I know
I always wanna be there
Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on, here I am
Whenever you call, you know I’ll be there

Let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever’s wrong and make it right (make it right)
Let me take you through that wonderland
That only two can share
All I ask you is let me be there (oh let me be there)

Let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever’s wrong and make it right (make it right)
Let me take you through that wonderland
That only two can share
All I ask you is let me be there (let me be there)
All I ask you is let me be there (oh let me be there)
