The society that scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

My blog page has not been updated since 2012. Hence, many of the pics
as well as other news are a bit out of date.
I have recently updated my computer instruction pages.
I have not added any songs since early 2009.

My name is Chris but I am known to many friends by my former nickname, Nobby - hence the name of this site. I'm from the state of Queensland, in
Australia. This site started as a collection of Spanish song lyrics and photos
of the Camino de Santiago. Then came family photos, and some quotations.
In late 2005 I added some pages on computer instruction which was my professional field.
In 2006 I included some pages about life attitudes which could help you improve your life. We have
been on a spiritual journey for much of our adult lives and have
listened to or read many famous teachers and authors. Some of
that wisdom is reproduced in the Attitudes pages. Additionally, I have given summaries of some books which I believe contain vitally useful information - information which could help you to improve your life beyond belief. I hope you take the time to read these pages and can benefit from them.
I have gathered together the lyrics of
many of the Spanish songs which I have in my collection. It took
me many months and countless hours of work to locate the lyrics
and in most cases to "translate" them to English. I
want the results of this to be available to all. And if this saves
you some work, then my site has served its purpose.
In 2003, my wife and I walked the famous Camino de Santiago pilgrim route
across the north of Spain. It was a beautiful experience and the
people we met were wonderful, making it a significant event in
our lives. The Camino pages include some photo memories of that epic journey.
For family members and friends in other places who might be interested, I have put many of our personal photos on the
In mid 2006 I spent three months back-packing around South America on a very tight budget. The record of that trip is in the Blog and travel pages.
