This was the theme that inspired me to write most of what you read on this blog. From growing up in Gosford, to moving north to Brisbane where I married my wife Denise. From Ardglen to Zig Zag, and in all between. In all I wrote 100 articles, including many of the photos which will ultimately feature in my final book to be announced at the end of 2020.
