Good to see someone's finally found a good use for Christmas carols.

Getting home safely (in an Uber) after a few beers at the Christmas function today. Kicking on while I crank up the Ziggy with a beef brisket, just need to find a red to wash it down with. Not back to my desk til Jan 7th.... bliss!

As some know we had our trip to Bali cut short in March last year as my MIL's cancer suddenly got on top of her, we raced home and got to spend the last 24 hours with her. To get home the same day we had to fly via Perth and just paid whatever we needed to make it.

Anyway Ive been putting off contacting Jetstar about the return flights we never used, had some time today so got onto their live chat service, thinking Id have to fill out forms, send multiple emails etc just to get the value of the flights back, about $400.

After they asked a few questions and I uploaded the Death Certificate, it took about an hour, but they came back and said they are arranging a $1,000 credit for us to use and we will have the email in the first week of Jan. I was taken back cause the return flights only cost us $800, but then remembered that the flight we took from Bali to Perth was Jetstar and that cost us around $900 from memory, that was obviously considered.

They have copped a bad rap lately but well played Jetstar :)

Will use that to get back to Bali for Dec next year for our 50ths

Self guided wine tour for Mrs HH3s birthday in the Clare Valley.

She has family in Clare that we visit often, so they came along.

Two of the wineries had breweries, so I hit the beer paddles to break up the wines.

Best winery by far was Shut The Gate. The owner brought each wine to our table and gave a good overview of the wine, and an explanation of how and why each vineyard produces different grapes.

We ended up buying their most expensive bottle.

Then Indii for dinner. Never lets us down.

The impact of certain afflictions is immediately evident. Mobile phone addiction, on the other hand, is insidious. It may not be immediately apparent, but the corrosive effect on social interactions is real.

Few have resisted the seductive nature of this hand-held addiction. An epidemic is limited to a particular people in a certain area, but the mobile phone is the socially acceptable opiate of the masses. Culturally indiscriminate, it may be the most common addiction in world history. I am an addict, and I guess you are too.

When Banksy used spray paint to mock lovers distracted by their phones, it captured the absurdity of this modern obsession. This obsession is detrimental to close relationships: our lovers, our children, our family, our pets.

The gaze of mobile phones has replaced real social interactions. How often do you ignore your partner or child because of the siren emanating from your phone? The unconscious decision to preference remote friends or strangers over intimate, present relationships is not rational. It is the product of addiction.

This addiction can harm more than social interactions with our intimates. It also provides a safe distance from which all manner of hurt can be caused. Cyber bullying is now prevalent among school children.

All forms of bullying are bad, but this new dimension makes it easier to exert psychological trauma, more often, from a safe distance, and sometimes from behind a screen of anonymity. Few argue this has been a positive development. The problem, having festered for years, has now led to moves by some to address the social impact of our addiction to mobile phones.

Blennerville is a town in County Kerry, Ireland. Teachers at a local school believed mobile phone use was the source of conflicts between students. Teachers and parents worked together to instigate an 11 week trial, during which students could no longer access their phones.

Students initially struggled with the abrupt cessation of the source of their addiction, but after an initial period of grieving, positive change was apparent. Relationships between peers improved, as did class dynamics and engagement in activities in and out of school. By the end of the 11-week program, parents reported that interactions in the home had improved, and children had replaced their unhealthy obsession with social media with healthier physical activities.

The football department at Port Adelaide Football Club, too, has moved to address the impact of mobile phone addiction. The group believes mobile phones are a barrier to genuine personal relationships. Players are encouraged to ignore their phones when together, when preparing for training, sharing a meal together, or travelling interstate and overseas.

The impact of this addiction may be subtle but it is broad. It can only be addressed through constant reflection and action. Within the home, a conscious effort to remove phones from family spaces or family times may improve the quality of relationships.

The remedy begins with identifying a problem. The unhealthy obsession with our phones may be the great modern addiction.
