Brian Lee Profile
There's no excuse for elder abuse
"It is beholden upon us to try to keep a quiet eye on neighbours or friends, looking for possible symptoms or lifestyle changes."
'Computers are no competition for the incredible power of the human brain'
The computer has a very long way to go, before it can really compete with us!
'I was taught to hide under my desk on my first day of school'
"I do remember being both excited and rather frightened as we arrived..."
'The Thai cave kids case brought back some scary childhood memories'
Brian first went 'spelunking' when he was just 14, and he still hasn't forgotten it.
Just how representative are our politicians
'Australian politicians spend the majority of their time in Canberra spitefully b****ing at each other when they should be getting on with running the country.'
Grumpy old man rants about the digital age
"It can't possibly be beyond the wit of electronics designers to include another button on the clock that goes 'back' instead of 'forward."
'We finally found the place we'd call 'home' after 14 moves'
"I just hope we can stay here for good."
Remember when manners and discipline were instilled in society
"I confess I often mope for the ‘good old days’ of manners and discipline."
'I remember the holiday we took every year as a family'
"We went there for years, in fact Mum and Dad had been going there long before I was born in 1935."
Older generations are better off than the young people of today
"The life span of the human race is always increasing -- in 1900 I believe it was somewhere around the 50-year mark and now, in 2018 we’re up into the high-70s..."
Grumpy old man: A little rant about online shopping
"Now I am quite happy to accept that there are many occasions where having these coded keys are vital."
A solution is needed to address our traffic jam pain
The one problem the motorway designers have been unable to find a cure for is the method of getting off them once you are on!
It's nuts that we're selling coal overseas while Aussies pay $$$ for energy
"We're using less coal for power generation, to keep the air clean and fresh, but are still selling vast quantities of the stuff to China and India."
Remember the 'six o'clock swill'? It's a miracle if you do!
"I have to confess that, lacking the discretionary powers regarding drinking, I developed later in life, I joined in with gusto!"
'It was a special moment when I was allowed to fly solo'
"That was the most thrilling and scary moment I have ever experienced in my life, but wonderful too -- because I survived it."
'I prefer music that sounds a bit more like music'
My Amazon Dot is a wonderful piece of equipment, especially when placed in the hands of an ignorant old man like me.
The guilty habits you have that drive others mad
It’s after 10am and the mail hasn’t arrived yet! Nothing too world shattering about that I guess, after all some...
'I remember when ice-cream was the most delicious thing I had ever tasted'
Growing up after the war may have been tough, but many will have some fond memories as children then.
'I'm not so sure the world is a better place'
We humans always seem to have an unhappy knack of not getting things right somehow.
Remember when we used to iron everything, including our undergarments
Those old cast iron units were surprisingly efficient at doing their job.
'I remember the thrill of riding on the tram'
Sadly, all the trams disappeared in about 1942, when the vast array of iron rails were torn up to be melted down...
