Ambles to the computer desk, pulls back the chair, dusts down the microphone, thinks to self, has it really been 12 months, fumbles a few words and gets back into it.   Just like falling off an ocean liner.   

Tonight, we re-introduce ourselves. 

Find us now at iTunes - That Happy Feeling - or http://moderick.libsyn.com.   To subscribe you should be able to go to either iTunes, or to http://moderick.libsyn.com/rss . 

Be gentle with me, it's apparently been 12 months. 

We talk tonight about Australia's forthcoming Carbon Tax. 

Mod's Wine of the Week is an Orion's Belt 2008 McLaren Vale Shiraz. 

We finish with one of Australia's great Aussie indie bands, "Junior', from South Australia, who are still on My Space.  If they've moved, I'll let you know next show. 

It's wonderful to be back.

That Happy Feeling #84. – The Australia Day Edition. A chat about Australia Day and a potted history of European settlement from 26 January 1788, but acknowledging that the aboriginal people have called Australia home for 40,000 years and see 26/1 as Invasion Day.

I can’t change perceptions, but can acknowlege concerns so for those concerns are acknowledged here.

Mod’s Wine of the Week is a Cudal (Cumulus) 2006 Rolling Chardonay

An amalgam of Welsh Choirs finish off. Did I tell you that Mum’s Dad was Welsh?

Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and we'll see you just before the New Year.

Drive safely, don't stress out too much and enjoy the period. If you get to spend it with children, even if they're not your own, so much the better.

Tomorrow, Christmas Day, I'm heading up to the central coast, basically across to the central coast, to the North of Sydney. A nice ferry ride first, then a friend of 50 years will pick me up and I'll spend Christmas with him and his family. 4 generations, and lots of visitors, so it'll be a good time. I'm staying overnight which means that I can have a drink or too and not worry about getting home. The forecast earlier in the week, was that it might be a wet Christmas Day, but if today's anything to judge, unless there's a late storm, it should be warm and sunny tommoow. Merry Christmas, Peace, Health and Fellowship to you all.

Merry Christmas to you and those you care about. Its Christmas Eve, and as I was preparing this on Sunday night, I decided to try to make the shows a little more regular in 2008. Haven't quite faded, maybe just in the lurking phase for the past coupla months. I wish you a safe, peaceful Christmas and a prosperous, joyful 2008. May we as indie podcasters, doing just for the halibut show there's more to this community than the need to make a fast buck. May we be sincere and supportive of our brother and sister podcasters, and may we continue to have fun doing what is so much fun. In the words of the Ubercaster - "Peace and Be Wild, Y'all". To much wine and not enough production value meant that all you get tonight, dear listener is me talking. No intro, no music, no outro. Sorry about that. We'll give you more Junior in episode 68.

Tonight, its mainly about my recent experience singing at the Sydney Opera House. On Sunday afternoon and evening I was in two concerts with the Choir of Hard Knocks, a Melbournbe choir formed by Mr Jonathon Welch, who previously formed the Sydney Street Choir, having been inspired by the story of Accueil Bonneau, the Montreal Homeless Mens Choir; a story he read in the Readers Digest about five years ago.

What an amazing experience.

It's good to be back behind the mic. After a fairly long absence.

Tonight we talk about yesterday's (24/3) New South Wales State election and the win by Premier < a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Iemma>Morris Iemma and the Australian Labor Party It was always going to be hard for the Opposition Leader, Peter Debnam, and the Liberal Party, but they performed creditably and will work hard to keep the Government on their toes and ensure that the State has an alternative plan in 2011 should the people so vote.

A hat tip to Bruce Murray's Zedcast and also Spine Radio, two of my favourite shows.

Music by Aussie indie wondergirl Peggy Van Zalm which you can buy from CD Baby

We now have light, and power, and a brand new Rode Podcaster USB microphone, thanks to the people at Videoguys Australiawhose service was exemplary.

Just a quckie cast tonight because it was broadcast in the dark, just on sunset, in a power blackout, following a severe rainstorm, which made for a very interesting bus ride home; flooded streets etc. Still we got here safe and sound.

Tonight's music is by Peggy Van Zalm from her Light Diamond album, which can be purchased from CD Baby. Her songs such as Crazy Daze, Distant Hearts and Mercy, are fantastic, and you'll hear more in the weeks to come. Finally, kudos to Canadian Podcast Buffet for its excellent podcasts. The latest featured a wonderful roundtable with a couple of irrepresible luminaries, and that's not to mention Bob and Mark, who are themselves irrepresible. Catch you shortly folks. Ciao!

Good evening everyone, sorry about the pause between podcasts. Tonight, its basically my talking about the visit to Sydney on Tuesday 20/2/07 of the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Elizabeth 2, with a dash of earlier historical visits by their namesakes, during World War 2. I think I was out in my years, i.e. saying the first visit was 1942, but that's your exercise for the week. Google "queen mary" + "queen elizabeth" + sydney. and you'll discover a few links telling about the earlier visits.

My Flickr Photos of the Queen Mary 2. Sorry folks, its as close as I was willing to get. Tonight's Aussie indie music is by Peggy Van Zalm, from CD Baby.

Plan A was to do a show on Sunday, which turned into Monday, and may have to wait until Friday. We had a sudden cool snap for a day or two after a hot weekend, and today was warm again, so I've picked up a short term throat thingy and the voice is husky, I'm clearing my throat every minute or so and I've a bit of tickle. Its a slow news week down under, so, with your concurrence I'll wait until Friday, before which I'll dose myself up with throat lozenges etc, maybe try a medicinal rum or two to hurry things along. By that time the beer will be cold, the microphone humming and I'll be itching to give you all the goss'.

. Frappr is an incredible product and a great tool to check your plan for world domination. My first forays into Frappr were somewhat bizarre mainly because I inserted a 5 digit US postcode for my 4 digit Aussie postcode, and ended up seemingly coming from Gunpowder MD, rather than Sydney, NSW, Australia. But they have now enhanced the edit function so we are back on the map, in the right place, although its kinda weird that there are 2 Australias in the world view.

Just an update on what's been going on. Big issues with uploading podcasts. Frustrating, possibly router or firewall issues.

Problems attempting to upload podcasts over the last week or so. Normal service wll resume ASAP. Unsure whether this is a Mac issue, an Isp issue, or a Libsyn issue.

Episode 9 is memories of a USA trip "ridin' the dog" in 1982, part of which included a very memorable couple of days in New Orleans. Tonight is a great time to remember the place, the sites, the smells, the people.

Your continued support of the Red Cross is appreciated and vital. Leave the finger pointing and reciminations until the people are safe and the repairs have been effected.

Take some time to offer what support you can to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

There are sites and lists of suitable charities and organisations peppered across the web.

Red Cross and the Salvation Army are two sites that immediately come to mind. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have suffered as a result of this catastrophe.

This is the non mp3 (text only edition). I've been trying to upload for the last three days. The mp3 file has been trimmed to about 26 mb. Still doesn't want to upload. ISP check seems to validate the ISP so unsure what the issue is. One of the things I had planned to talk about was Tech Rage. (Tarzan like yell). Hopefully we'll be back in cyberspace in the foreseeable future.

Just a short test to try to figure out what's causing upload problems at the moment. Haven't been able to upload for the last two days. Admittedly the file was about 29mb long, but that should be well within the quota. We'll have another go tomorrow, and investigate other avenues.

My Hat Tip to the True North, as part of Episode 3 of a Salute to My Podroll.

Tonight I say thanks to those Canadaian podcasters who regularly bring me a heck of a lot of joy and good cheer just for the halibut.
