In the intimate setting of the museum's theaterette, the cast and crew of Through the Lines takes you on board the ship to Europe, into the hospital in Egypt, the battlefields at Gallipoli and in France, through the eyes of the nurses.

Cheryl Ward is the Writer, Producer and one of the six Performers. Through These Lines is her first play as a writer. She directed, produced, designed and created the props for the successful 2010 season of Through These Lines, which she staged in the tunnels of Headland Park, Mosman."

War at Sea

Their temporary exhibition is about the Australian Navy and submarine in the First World War.

"The Royal Australian Navy submarine AE2 was scuttled in deep water in the Sea of Marmara on 30 April 1915 after it had run the gauntlet of Turkish minefields, warships and forts in the Dardanelles Straits. AE2 was behind Turkish lines the night before the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli."..

paper back spine failure

The final of four drafts of 1920s Annandale A Short Walk  Marghanita da Cruz with line drawing of 1920s Flats1920s Annandale: A short Walk has now been reviewed and the suggestions have been incorporated.

However, Lulu's print on demand that has worked so reliably to date is failing. The US Trade paperbacks are falling apart.

This appears to have been discussed on the Lulu forum last year

Though, notification of the the latest replacement copies came with the assurance that they would be fine. Time will tell.

Ashfield Council, in Sydney's inner west, is running an Electrical and Electronic Waste Collection afternoon at their depot in Prospect Road, Summer Hill.

They are collecting Computers & Accessories, Stereo Systems, TVs, DVD and Video Players, Telephones & Mobile Phones, Cameras, Gaming Consoles, Household electrical appliances such as Microwaves, irons and kettles.

But not: Smoke Alarms, Chemicals, Paints, White Goods, Air Conditioners.

It is easy to pass the depot, which I thought was a block of flats. On a third pass, I saw the signage and joined a couple of other cars dropping off stuff.

The collection wasn't restricted to residents of the municipality. They just asked for a Postcode.

The council workers packed the stuff, from Giant TVs to my iron, phones, stick blender and CD Writer, into a moderate sized shipping container.

They took the LED Lamp but not the Fluoro.

Ashfield Council gets ***** (five stars) for this initiative!!

There will also be collections in October, November, December 2014. More about Residential e-Waste Collection Events at Ashfield Council Depot, 7 Prospect Road, Summer Hill at
