For those about to Rock

Remember when kitchens were just that room at the back of the house. That forbidden place where mums across the country put the 3 veg on to boil for an hour and a half every night while they did the washing, ironing and caught up with I Love Lucy repeats. Then they’d finally return to pour the hot green water down the sink and throw the grey sludge on the plate with some rissoles and smother the lot with gravy.

Our kitchen was replendent in bright orange and lime green laminex, contained a Sunbeam Mixmaster the size of a labrador and worst of all had a drawer which contained the oft used wooden spoon.

How times have changed! Masterchef and MKR have brought kitchens into the limelight and home chefs out of the closet for ever. No longer the bastion of congealed cabbage and unbridled disciplinary action, kitchens have become the hub of most homes and Thermomixes, Kitchenaides and Cook Books are the norm. Of course they have to look good too – laminex and dodgy brown tiles giving way to modern bench tops and splash backs that wouldn’t look out of place at the Vatican or Warney’s place.

Renshaw Stone in Glenorchy have been making kitchens look good for a while now. Granite and Marble are their materials of choice and Elliot, Annie and their dedicated staff have the expertise and experience to guarantee to put a smile on the dial of kitchen owners right across the state.

Resilience have been lucky enough to work with them for a while now and recently completed their new web site and online estimator.

Cleaning Up

Familiar sight?

Most of us that have kids know that hours spent on our knees picking up toys, finding stray bits of food stuffed into the sub woofer and fixing broken stuff are facts of life.
In my kids’ case I’m afraid it’s genetic. Frustrated sentences uttered by my mother which included both “your room” and “bomb site” were a very common occurrence. Naturally back yard cricket and footy were at the top of my priority list – hospital corners on the bed? Not so much! A trait that sadly has followed me into adult life.Continue Reading..

Cool for Cats

Ever had one of those dodgy pre packaged holidays? You know the ones. The glossy brochure promises an idyllic setting, hammocks strung between palm trees, white sand, warm blue water lapping up to your straw thatched villa and drinks with pineapple shards and mini umbrellas.

Sucked me in once! Off I jetted to an exotic South East Asian location next to my partner full of romantic notions of sun, sand, food, drinks and well romance! Casually looking around the plane inwardly gloating that most of these suckers wouldn’t have got even close to the incredible deal I got. Eventually emerging from the relative calm of the airport into the absolute chaos that seems to be peculiar to that part of the world, I was already looking forward to the promised welcoming cocktail and relaxing in at the resort.Continue Reading..

Pimp your Ride

Ah, 1984 – The Bombers beat their arch rivals Hawthorn for the flag, Darryl and Ossie are doing their thing on the box and Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark.

It’s also the year of my college formal, and dressed to the nines in my Miami Vice white suit and pastel green square bottom tie, I’m on my way to pick up my girlfriend of three weeks in my 1972 two door Corolla coupe. A quick stop into a servo to grab some fuel, whack a $2 note into the acceptor and I’m good to go. Nervous as all hell because I’m about to meet her parents for the first time, I pull into her driveway to find her old man washing his Datsun 180b and looking at me, then my ride, looked me up and down again, finally fixing his gaze at the hotwire mags on the front, rolled his eyes and said “So you’re the bloody reason I can never use the phone at night.”

At that moment the front door opened and my girlfriend’s mother came out with a smile on her face, Emma trailing behind. Any hopes I had of a reprieve faded as quickly as the smile on her mum’s face though as she eyeballed my car. A look at her husband and a quick tilt of the head followed by a whispered conversation 10 yards away ensued as I slowly changed colour from white, through the shades of pink to scarlet and then back to white again. Eventually after expressing their grave concerns about the quality and safety of my car they admonished me to drive safely with my precious cargo and allowed us to leave. As first impressions go at least there was no where but up to go in their estimation!

If only Tasmanian Luxury Limousines were about in my day! That embarrassing footnote to my adolescence could have been avoided entirely (I’m not talking about the suit!) and I would have been viewed in an entirely different light!

A Frenchman in Tasmania

Resilience Marketing are proudly Tasmanian. We’ve been here a long time and have helped hundreds of Tasmanian businesses with their marketing and web needs.

Aside from business though we love being part of the fabric of this lovely island we call home. Owners, Darren and Jody, and their family are off cruising around the Island every chance they get in their motor home, pulling up to spend a night or two in some of our iconic tourist destinations and sampling our awesome produce and beverages.

Our picturesque little slice of paradise also has a thriving art scene,¬† MONA being the jewel in the crown. But long before David Walsh built his incredible world class museum on the banks of the Derwent and supercharged¬† the Tasmanian art landscape, Tasmania’s natural beauty had already attracted a host of photographers and artists from all over the world.

Among them, a few years ago, was Michel Gintrac – a Frenchman who now calls Tasmania home and produces high quality landscapes in oils showcasing Tasmania’s natural beauty.

Resilience have completed a web site for Michel, showcasing his work – which showcases Tasmania. You can see it here: http://www.michelgintrac.com.au/

Anyone up for a quiet ride in the country?

Ah, nice summers day, gentle breeze blowing and the sound of helmet clips and bikes starting can be heard all around Tasmania.

One by one, two by two and well, lot’s by lots, motor bike riders head out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever comes their way (Thanks Steppenwolf!)Continue Reading..

Square pegs – Round Holes

Most people that know me well will tell you that I’m spontaneous – impulsive is probably more accurate. Keeping everyone guessing, including myself is well developed skill years in the making. Considered decisions and planning really aren’t my forte!

Like the time I went looking for furniture after buying my first home. I had a plan, well a list of items I needed, and off I went enthusiastically in search of something on which to sit, eat, sleep and work. Five hours later, decidedly less enthusiastic I ticked the last item off the list, shook hands with the Harvey Norman salesman who had that grin and look in his eye that big game fishermen get, and went home to my card table and blow up mattress to await delivery the next day.Continue Reading..

When Soap Gets in your Eyes

So here’s how a typical morning went when I was a teenager at my parent’s house. 6 people, two showers – you do the math! Mum and Dad used the upstairs bathroom while 4 kids fought a secret war downstairs over the holy grail of Wentworth St – a hot shower!

My brother wasn’t so much a problem, he was a lot younger and was usually in and out quickly anyway but my sisters, once they’d set up base camp there was no dislodging them. Dirty tricks like flushing the toilet had no effect – General Patten himself would have trouble retaking the bathroom with a battalion of infantry at his disposal. Continue Reading..

Move over George

Meet George Jetson….. As a kid that opening line would send me scurrying for the tv where nothing short of a nuclear bomb would dislodge me for the next half hour. Flying saucers, sky high conveyor belts, robots and whacky futuristic inventions had me wishing that futuristic world would just hurry up and get here already.

Well it’s here! Maybe not with flying saucers, in two dimensions and 128 colours like the Jetsons – but in terms of houses we’ve already surpassed what the soothsayers at Hanna Barbara predicted. Smart homes are here and they are only going to get smarter!
