    Our ex PM's wife's name.

  2. Thanks. I forgot about Kevin Rudd's business-savvy wife.

    However, I don't think she is Dr Lu's inspiration for the name. Perhaps Dr Lu could have used Tilly, Trudy, Tuly, or even Truly if she (or he) wanted a phonetic-based name?

    Only needed more common sense!

  4. Common sense is not so common; never has been, not currently fashionable, but hopefully in the near future, if we are able to teach enough youngsters critical thinking skills, then that may change … hopefully. Until then, this blog will highlight the silliness from this little part of the world.

    Sadly I think you'll have plenty of fodder for a really long time.

  6. I'll take that as a positive. I don't think this Blog would survive without highlighting some silliness from this place. Also, thank you for your insightful comments that help to make this Blog more interactive and interesting.
