Merimbula Summer Sunset

Merimbula Summer Sunset

Have been tweeting on @WeMelbourne about blogging all night and my site hasn’t been updated since December… how embarrassing. That’s going to change… yes with this post but also from now on… more blogging… YES, I KNOW… I’ve said that before and failed. It’ll be different this time… I hope.

So, anyway… this is one of my all-to-common “Claytons” blog posts. But at least it gets 2013 on the calendar.

This photo was taken back in January, when the clan went to Merimbula for 10 days. Beautiful part of the country.

Given it’s 1.40am, I think I’ll leave it at that.

Port Campbell

Port Campbell

Despite having lived in Victoria for my entire life, I had never been to see the most visited local tourist attraction, The Twelve Apostles… I’d not been beyond Apollo Bay. That changed last week when we ventured out to Port Campbell with the clan… and I must say, it was every bit as beautiful as I’d been told, and I have no doubt I’ll be returning to this part of Victoria to take many, many more photos.

A-League VIII – Round 1

It’s been a long time since I publicly tipped on A-League, and am going to try my hand today at this weeks opening round of Season 8.

Despite the coaching changes since last season seeming to suggest this should be a win for the blue side of Melbourne, I’m going to tip with my heart and say the Heart will beat Victory tonight.

Wellington will spoil Del Piero’s welcome to the A-League,  but defeating Sydney.

Glory will take out their revenge on the Roar.

Central Coast will be too strong for the Wanderers.

Heskey will impress for Newcastle as they teach Adelaide a thing or two… no mercy will be shown the already depressed Reds, coming off their aggregate loss in their Asian Championship League efforts.

So… they’re my tips for this weekend.  If they’re any good, I might do this again.

Design History of the Keks Blog – Part II

Over six years ago, I posted a design history of the evolutions/changes that had taken place over the previous five-and-a-half years. Time to post an update.

Unlike the last design history post, I’ve stuck with the WordPress for the past six years, and stuck with the one domain… the information below shows what has changes though.

Comment: This design was a tiny tweak of Fredrik Fahlstad’s fSpring theme. It was not a major deviation from the tweaked Kubrik theme that came before it… a little more polished and less common definitely, but had too much in common with its predecessor, so lasted little over a year before I abandoned it for something fresher and more customised.

Comment: This design was a heavily modified version of the 4u by utombox, which was itself based on the much used and modified Hemingway theme.

This theme underwent some minor tweaks here and there on it’s time on this site, but is to-date the most long lasting of all the themes that I’ve used here… four-and-a-half years.


That brings us to the current design ((First Post: 24th of March 2012)), YAMINTH which is a wonderful, fresh and minimalist design that is well suited to what this site has become of late, i.e. basically a photoblog with the occasional traditional-type blog… only time will tell how long it lasts here, but I expect it will be a stayer.
