I'm Going to Ukraine!!!

I have never been overseas before, but when the opportunity arose for the chance to go to Ukraine with the combined choirs of "Cheremosh" and the Ukrainian Cathedral Choir, I really couldn't say no for this once in a lifetime opportunity. I rejoined the choir after an absence of about 5 years and performed with the choir for their 35th anniversary concert. It was a great feeling being back with the choir as I do love to sing. The moment came on Thursday, just past where the tickets for the tour would be booked, and booked they are much to my delight.

The choir will be leaving in September, but not before they do a few performances in Victoria. Starting off in Lviv in Western Ukraine, before touring Western region and then finally finishing off in the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv. The tour will go for a duration of 3 weeks, after which choir members are free to do what they wish in returning back to Australia. Over the coming months, I'll be taking you on a journey through Ukraine and will keep you updated on the choirs progress.

So stay tuned.

Back to Business

It's time for me to get back into business and paying more attention to working on my website and not playing around too much on Facebook (I hear laughter). I did try to walk away, but then who was I kidding considering facebook is a handy site to advertise my own website. But I really need to show my serious and creative side by paying more attention to Semaphore Junction.

I'm back to working on updating the site and have decided to go back to using Frontpage since the code of Expression is to put it bluntly, Scheisshaus. Lets just keep things nice and simple. But I am still going to be updating pages. If i'm able to add new features to the site, then I'll just do my best.

Tomorrow, I'll be heading back to Glenorchy to check on how the town is going after the floods and to help out and see if how much the grass has grown on my own property. Some of the photos from the floods are available for viewing on the Northern Grampians Shire website.
