Lynne and I have five kids and they're all different.

Carrie, the oldest, is a chess player and is pictured playing in last year's City of Sydney Championship.

Geoff, the next, is a swimmer who last year failed in his first attempt to swim the English Channel.  He'll be back in 2010 and is confident that he'll make the crossing.

Mike was both a runner and a bicycle racer.  A tough competitor, he never knew when to give up.

Wayne was our fourth.  He was a remarkably good squash player but  his first love was hang gliding.  We lost him almost 12 years ago at age 28 when he fell from a cliff.  We still miss him.  

Neil, the youngest, has a black belt in kung-fu and teaches people to fly hang gliders.  He works closely with "Birdman" Bill Moyes, the guy who invented the sport.

    All of the above, P4L.  The ggd only arrived about a month ago.

    Looking back at all the watersheds that shunted my life back and forth over the years I've gotta admit that quite apart from the pleasure that comes from the love of a family, my lot have altered my life in so many ways and introduced me to so many ideas and activities that I just wouldn't have considered on my own.  Yeah, it's been a buzz.
