I got a Chromecast the other day. It’s a little thing that I plug into the back of the telly so that I can send videos from the phone or tablet to be viewed on the big screen. Both phone and tablet screens are just too small to be comfortable to watch _anything_ on. The laptop is just bearable but this new thing works good. Now at dinner time, instead of reruns of M.A.S.H. I can watch <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pVWfzsgLoQ”>a 10hour train journey through Norway from the front of a loco</a>.

Last Saturday was Pakofest. Here is a foto of my bruddas and sistas of the Karen community in Geelong. The parade was okay except there was a couple of big gaps in it and because I was not near a loud speaker I thought it was over so strolled off after only two-thirds had gone by. I did manage to bump into some of the last parts again but I don’t know what was going on with the float co-ordination.
Also whatever sliver of tolerance I had for being stuck in crowded throngs is presently gone.
