Are we all just idiots?
As I'm sitting here, sipping my Lipton English Breakfast, I'm on realestate.com.au looking at cheap houses in Queensland. Here is what I found:
This appears to be the cheapest, 'liveable' house in Queensland. It lives here.
Wiki says this about Quilpie. It looks like an alright kind of place to live.
I suppose it's how we have all become; we live in cities, we watch television shows like 'Modern Family' and 'How I met Your Mother', we are lured in by the conveniences of urban life. With this comes a job, and a sizeable mortgage, and if you have kids, less and less time to actually be involved in their lives. OR, if you have a hobby, less time to devoted to this. Or if you want to get fit and healthy, finding the time to do these things regularly becomes a bit of a challenge.
Questions: Can I do what I do here in Toowoomba, in Quilpie?
Watch television: Yes, albeit it may be Imparja. The internet could help here tremendously though.
Access internet: Yes, worse case scenario is satellite.
Outings with the family: Yes, but seeing relatives is much more difficult, as they live in that other world far away.
Play badminton: Yes, but not like it is in Toowoomba, there would not be many players and the standard would be questionable. There'd be tennis as a n alternative.
Get a coffee: Yes
Funny thing this 'living' is.
There is a little Facebook/Twitter/other social media sharing options thingy underneath this post. Spread the word. As much as I love writing on this blog, it would be great if I had more 'followers' or 'disciples' who read the word of the great Andrew.
