How to Be the Perfect Grandpa


Bryna Paston

Towards the end of 2020, with the birth of our first Grandchild imminent we received the How to Be the Perfect Grandpa/Grandma books.

According to my significant other, the Grandma book was quite humorous.  I’m afraid I only managed a smile or two during the last few pages of my Grandpa book.  Was this due to the fact that I was expected to read this book?  Maybe.  I  do like to choose my own reading material. 

Put simply, How to be the Perfect Grandpa is a book I would never have contemplated reading, as it is full of real-life anecdotes and I seldom, if ever, read anything but fiction. 

However, I did finish How to be the Perfect Grandpa which means it rates as a two-star book.

I think the Burj Al Arab is

a fantastic design both

in and outside.

In comparison, the Burj Khalifa is just plain huge.

The geometrical pattern on the exterior of Melbourne’s

National Gallery of Australian Art…

…exacerbating Melbournian’s love/hate relationship

with the building.


Prior to the 2006 Commonwealth Games

being held in Melbourne,

Spencer St Railway Station was renovated

and modernised.

Its most notable feature is the waves and arches

which now support a similarly shaped roof.

It was also renamed Southern Cross Station.


Around the corner, Flinders Street Station remains

as it was at the beginning of the twentieth century.

To change the exterior facade of

Flinders St would cause a public outcry…

…similar to the outcry when the Flinders Street

clock faces were digitised.

Public backlash forced local authorities

to change the clocks back to analogue faces

with digital workings.

Now Melbournians and visitors alike

are still able to meet under the

Flinders Street clocks as they

have done for many, many decades.
