These are a few of my favourite pings // 9.7

I was at a prime minister’s funeral on my birthday. I watched the sun set over Uluru with a prince and princess and was thrown sideways in a ute next to a sheep sheering display. I’ve climbed masts, thrown axes, driven fast cars, had a police escort, been chased by a dingo, waded through flood water, been patronised by a (living) prime minister and have been ordered to leave a squatters camp. I’ve argued and laughed and charmed and pissed off and mumbled and pushed…and spent many hours sitting, staring at my computer screen, in a grey-on-grey office. But what are some of my favourite products of my working life of late?

Here are my fondest recentish stories, in no particular order:

Why Australia’s free barbecues are a national treasure

Lunch with Maha Krayem Abdo head of Muslim Women’s Association and NSW Human Rights Ambassador

Lunch with Adam Spencer: revenge of the nerds

Lunch with hand surgeon W Bruce Conolly preserves the formalities

Ashley Johnston hailed as Kurds’ hero in Sydney funeral

Good Food on Sunday: The Bondi Hipsters love Faheem’s Fast Food

For the feel of the drive alone, I’m going to include our She says, he says, BMW i3 review

Gough Whitlam memorial: a fitting end to a great, and chequered, career

And, finally, for the video, this ditty: I try my hand at axe throwing
