I would like to take a moment out to remember one of our late Prime Ministers, one Harold Holt, how has the distinction of being Australia's lost PM. 33 years ago yesterday he took his fateful dip off Cheviot Beach and vanished without a trace. He will forever be remembered through the municipal swimming pool named in his honour.
Incidentally, yesterday was also the anniversary of something rather more momentous – that is, the first successful flight by the Wright brothers in 1903, sparking the age of aviation. I'm all for aviation and planes and such, provided I don't have to stay in them myself for too long. That's for two reasons – a)disregarding spiders, my other biggest fear is heights, or, rather falling from them and b)I always wind up in economy class with my knees stuck up around my ears because the bastard in front of me insists on spending the entire trip with his chair back as far as it can go. This is compounded somewhat by the fact that I'm a bit on the tall side for a woman – just under 6ft - so I never really have much room to begin with and things get rather… uncomfortable. And I tend to get rather irate, but that's another story, for another time.
