Well, today I started a level 2 First Aid Course.
For those of you who don't know, I am now an active member of the Emerald State Emergency Service (SES). I have a pager and attend call outs to storm damage jobs, Road Crash Rescue and Search and Rescue Jobs.
It is all very interesting, and the first aid course is the first formal training course that I have participated in, and it is turning out to be very practical and hands on, which I think is fantastic.
Today we learned how to perform CPR correctly, and how to treat some other injuries, such as eye, skin and other cuts and lacerations. I am sure they have a lot in store for us again tomorrow, and I am really looking forward to it.

Yes I know, it is neardy, but this time I am serious.
I have become so wrapped up in Ubuntu Linux, that I am thinking about leaving windows forever.
The system is so easy to use and it has all of the functionality of windows, such as DVD and MP3 Playback, CD burning, Office Document Editing, Image Manipulation and many more features.
In fact I am so convinced that this is the future for my computer, that as soon as I setup my iPod to work with Ubuntu, which I am told is very easy, I will get rid of windows!
I know this is a big step, but I think it is a good one.
I will keep you all up to date with the progress.
This service is a single phone number which you can call to be directed to your nearest wildlife care person.
This means that if you hit a Kanga or Wombat when driving home at night you can get in contact with someone that can help the animal.
