F1 Practice (short video) The Formula 1 race yesterday delivered some interesting results and was a great event to attend in Melbourne. Jenson Button won the race after an amazing performance.

I had a great trip to Australia and am currently sitting in the Sydney airport after a strike was announced this morning. And, without any warning. There is no assistance in the airport and the ground staff don’t know what’s going on, so the flight is delayed for a while. I did see some “blue collar recruitment” people running around… Every now and then a voice comes over the microphone just saying “delays are to be expected” – and that’s it! Maybe someone on Facebook will know and I don’t care if I know them or not, does this make me a facebookemon?
