Retired four-star general Stan McChrystal has lived a life associated with the deadly risks of combat.
The bell, which was rung at the first game of rugby league between the Rabbitohs and Roosters at Birchgrove Oval back in 1908, is currently sitting inside Crowe’s memorabilia room at his Nana Glen estate on NSW’s north coast.
Decline of a Wandering Brooklynite
I’m a sucker for spy novels, but when it comes to movies and TV shows, there aren’t many spy stories that I really like. My favourite has always been the BBC adaptation of from the 1980s. But then I got switched on to and we’ve been binge-watching it – we’re now on the last season of five. It’s about the French intelligence services as they’re investigating al-Qaida, or Russia, and it’s very much focused on the bureaucracy of it. I really admire the writing and the acting is absolutely superb. It’s incredibly well done, one of the best TV series I’ve seen, not that I’ve watched much TV.
