7.30: Sales plus Uhlmann equals quality current affairs, keeping Aunty at the forefront in Australia

Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'
07th March 2011

Monday: A new era began this evening as 7.30 replaced The 7.30 Report, and Leigh Sales and Chris Uhlmann replaced Kerry O'Brien, who had been anchoring the esteemed current affairs program since the First Fleet sailed into Botany Bay.

I congratulate Ms Sales and Mr Uhlmann, as well as the ABC, for the excellence of this first offering, certain to be just one of hundreds, even thousands, to come of similar quality. Anyone who doesn't think that these two journalists don't represent much of the the cream of Australian journalism, hasn't assessed the alternatives nor followed these two for several years.

They are proving that given intelligence and knowledge, research and sincerity, honey catches more flies than vinegar. The exciting thing is also that they are young enough to refine and mature further for up to another thirty years or more.

I only wish I had more time to follow and post about their doings, as well as their many talented colleagues anchoring the other excellent ABC offerings, such as Lateline, Lateline Business, and Q&A, let alone the new Channel 24 line up. Alas, serious health and other issues have absorbed most of my discretionary time since last October.

However, much viewing can be done even when exhausted, and one's delightful pet cat on one's lap can add much balm to the experience.

THE CIRCLE OF LIFE: With this ring I thee...

Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'
08th February 2011

Tuesday: The Babies Ink&Peggletter came to dinner with us and Janny's father at our place, and announced that they were engaged two days ago, on their third anniversary of meeting. Janny and I are elated at the news; Baby Peggletter is one of those very rare people I like more each time I meet him, and I've met him now maybe a couple of hundred times.

I couldn't be happier than my only child will be marrying such a superb young man.

A unique and delicate ring now graces our beautiful daughter's delicate small hand.

A very special day.
