Watching the first season of The Tudors

The Tudors is a historical drama television series created and entirely written by Michael Hirst. The series is loosely based upon the early reign of British monarch Henry VIII.
I have really enjoyed this drama. Unfortunately it has entailed looking up English history again as it seem I have forgotten a little since I was a schoolboy

Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Henry VIII

I want that …

Nice Bike … one day I want one.

Because it is a foldable bike, it needs small wheels (20″) if you want it to be able to fold it up into a small space This means you need a long seat post and handlebar post then on a normal bike.

Went to the Melbourne Bicycle Touring Club meeting last night.
They had a talk about a 30 day trip in Indonesia

and more importantly they had a talk from the GalFromDownUnder


She is a Evangelist for Bike Friday, a small custom bicycle manufacturing company in the USA.

She demonstrated one of the new models and I was quite impressed. One of the guys at the meeting had one as well.

They make some great bikes, so have a look , you won’t be disappointed.

There is a film night in about two weeks which features two films that the GalFromDownUnder has made, so I will pop along to that.
