At Verdun GSA's International Claire meets The Man She Never Knew
The Man We Never Knew, was much honored on ANZAC Day.
GSA met him and thousands like him on a recent visit to the war cemetery at Verdun. The pain of that European killing field is palpable. My grand-daughter Claire is an International with two passports, Australian and German, who lives near the Dutchy of Luxembourg.
We stood together at Verdun before the cross of a Frenchman who fell. Among the thousands of white markers, stark and lonely in a heavy mist it was the only one we saw with flowers which someone had left.
The child understood, she stood in silence before the fallen Frenchman's grave and bowed her head in silence for the man she never knew.
Her understanding is the seed of hope.
Broome provides a base for some serious WA relaxation
It is sunset over the 22 kilometre stretch of white sand that is Broomes Cable Beach and a small crowd gathers to watch as the sun, now a disc of deep red, sinks into the Indian Ocean.
One or two people linger at the waters edge, refusing to relinquish the day, while a trail of camels stroll along the sand, giving visitors one of Broomes most famous experiences a sunset camel ride.
Sitting just 18 degrees from the equator, Broome has a year-round warm and tropical climate, which encourages relaxation and an outdoors lifestyle.

Road Rules clear view demands common factor in mirrors choices for compliant towing
The Australian Road Rules are the basis for compliance in all Australian states and territories. There are still a number of variations across Australia, which are allowed through 'laws of jurisdiction.'
The common factor is that the road rules state that a driver must not drive a motor vehicle unless the driver has a clear view of the road as well as traffic ahead, behind and to each side.
A reversing camera fitted to the rear of a caravan and connected for viewing on a display screen in the tow vehicle cab will also provide a good rear view, but may not adequately provide good vision down both sides of the caravan or trailer.
