This is the new A380 when it made it's first visit to Australian soil - touching down at Brisbane airport for a quick Quantas paintjob before heading down south. Note the size of the massive semi-trailer parked on the apron of the hangar, then look at the plane! Maximum takeoff weight: 590,000 kg (1,300,700 lbs) - yup, a MILLION POUNDS! If you love your specs, you can check out some good A380 stats at <a href="http://www.thaitechnics.com/aircraft/a3xx.html" target="_blank">Thai Technics</a>

We have had a couple of largish bushfires around Keperra and the Gap over the last two days, this afternoon it really took off. Our Fire &amp; Rescue guys were going hard at it in the choppers protect

MauMusic - The Music Store for the Hills in Keperra

We're sorry to advise that MauMusic closed in March 2015. We thank all of our customers, suppliers, friends, staff and colleagues who supported us through many amazing - and some extremely difficult times over the past 9 years. Due to the financial environment and increasing demands on Dianne's health we took the difficult decision to wind up the business. We are both now pursuing other interests and dreams - watch these spaces.

Turns out I'm a "Modern, Cool Nerd" - some kind of freakish half-nerd, half-geek beast I guess. Take the survey yourself if you're interested....
Modern, Cool Nerd 56 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 30% Dork For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

The critter who went for a dawn walk on this beach followed a chaotic path indeed.

Very much a challenge to find "Chaos" for a PhotoFriday entry, especially when I usually look for order and balance when I shoot.

Toowong Cemetary, Brisbane Australia. Sad that some people get a thrill from defacing the resting places of others - with not even a piece of eight to show for it.
Placed 30th (oh well) in the FujiMugs &quot;Movies&quot; challenge.
