Wow! we watched this new program/miniseries and thought that it was amazing.
So basically it is a modern day version of good old Sherlock Holmes. The basics are the same as the originally the detective (consulting detective) works with his new friend and room mate, Dr. John Watson, who has come back from Afghanistan. However in this show they use the modern conveniences to help solve the crimes, like mobile phones and modern science. Watson still writes up the stories of Holmes but instead of writing for the papers he writes in his blog.
I just love how they have taken these stories and made them modern but the characters are still them same. It is a much better way in my opinion of making them more palatable for modern audiences than the movie Sherlock Holmes which came out earlier this year.

So you may have picked up that I had finished my Diploma in Library/Information Services. Well yes I did finish it in June. However there was an issue with one subject and I had to resubmit an assessment. This meant that when I recieved my transcript for the last semester I had one deferred result, and therefore the course was not finished.

After the break the teacher marked the resubmitted assessment and told me that I had passed, he told me that he would send it through to the records and get it fixed up. A few weeks later I checked and it had not been fixed. So I sent him an email asking him what had happened and he said he must have stuffed up and he would have to get the head teacher to fix it up. Nothing had happened after a couple of weeks, so I contacted the head teacher about it myself. She said she would get it fixed up and have them send a new transcript. Well it did get fixed up and I waited a couple of weeks and not new transcript came. So I decided to go in and get a copy of my transcript, which I did.

The result of all this is that I am eligible to recieve a Diploma in Library/Information Services with Distinction.

Ben and Radz Wedding.

Well last weekend on Saturday (2 October) my brother Ben got married to the beautiful Radhika (Radz). It was a really great day and I enjoyed it. The brides dress was beautiful. And it was really good to catch up with family members that we don't see that often. 
My sister got to be part of the band and she did a pretty good job. I held up the banner with my older brother, for the couple to run through (I believe that Ben was the only one who ran through it though). The banner said No draws just two winners.
