l am so happy that l have arrived back in the city of my birth. l love this town l think it is one of the great cities of the world, it might not have the history of some of the other great cities but for music,art dinning,and just beautiful aesthetics it is up there with the best. There is still a lot of the old Victorian styled Melbourne town left, you just have to walk around the city and you can see it everywhere, it would have been an amazing place back in her day. l am so looking forward to my steampunk tram ride dinner that is being planned on the tram car restaurant funnily for the night of my birthday it will be a splendid night. l am also looking forward to seeing some of the beautiful artwork that is on show at the Melbourne Art gallery witch is having a Salvador Dali exhibition next month that is the biggest exhibition of his works to ever be shown in Australia.l will be doing a lot more posts now l am here about the beautiful things my town has to offer..

The forgotten genius of Nikola Tesla, this man should be remembered like the greats of science and invention , Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and Thomas Edison but for some reason his genius has been forgotten, if you asked someone one on the the street who invented AC power they wouldn't have a clue, l find that somewhat strange considering it was probably the most important invention of the modern world and he was the greatest of all inventors of all time...

Back in the early 1900's divers off the coast of the Greek island Antikythera discovered a 2000 year old computer. The Antikythere mechanism was a dictionary sized assemblage of 37 interlocking dials used to track the movements of the planets and to determine the dates and places of upcoming Olympic games. It was thought that gears of this kind was not invented for at least another 1500 years.
l think there are many things we have yet to discover about our ancient ancestors, they where far more advanced than many of us think....

With there being over one billion sun like stars in our Galaxy alone it really makes you think.
What types of other lifeforms that might be out there waiting to be discovered?
l have often looked up into the sky for hours at a time and just wondered what is out there.
l have always believed we are not alone.
