So this is how I passed my time from 10 am to 2 pm yesterday

Some of it was in a machine just like this – I know, I read the brand name.


Hawkeye, eh! Just like in the Cricket telecasts?

And you can read all about what is involved here. I don’t have the results yet, but the doctor did say if they found anything very serious they would send me straight to hospital – and they didn’t.

Three years ago a Bloomberg item reported that such tests average $2,000 each. Thanks to our still comparatively enlightened approach to health care in Australia yesterday cost me ZERO, NADA, ZILCH! Count your blessings, Aussies, and be careful who you vote for – even if so far health policy has been rather bipartisan.

The facility where I was done was just down this street.


Pretty place, Wollongong.
