first_imgMountain climber Ross Miller in action.RESPECTED Brisbane mountain climber Annette Miller sold her family home at auction on Saturday, nine years after losing her husband in a mountain climbing tragedy at Mt Lindesay on the Queensland/New South Wales border.25 Tamarang Street, Tarragindi.Mrs Miller was the first woman to climb Mt Tinbeerwah near Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and her husband Ross Miller was a professional rock climber with more than 20 years’ experience.Annette Miller at the auction of her Tarragindi home of 25 years.“Mountain climbing is about being out in nature, you forget everything except that square metre of rock in front of you and above you and it’s the challenge of whether you can ‘work the rock’,” Mrs Miller said.“And to do it with someone, like a soulmate or even a good friend, it’s an amazing experience because you’re both dependent on each other and your life is quite literally in the other person’s hands, there’s a lot of trust involved.”25 Tamarang Street, Tarragindi is also 46 O’Neil Street, Moorooka as it has a two-street frontage and is positioned at the boundary of two suburbs.Their four-bedroom, architect-designed home at 25 Tamarang Street, Tarragindi is on a 45 degree slope next to Toohey Forest Park and is packed with memories from a lifetime of hiking and climbing together.“It’s taken me a long time to get to this point where I felt I could let go of the house,” Mrs Miller said. “Ross and I pretty much had our whole relationship here … he did all the gardening and he also built the rock climbing wall downstairs,” she said.Great views from the deck.Place Graceville agent Karen Simons took the 1980s-built, three-level home to auction with two active bidders but a vendor bid of $850,000 was needed to break the ice.Architect Leon Burton raised the bid to $900,000 and after a short volley of bids the house sold to Mr Burton for $1.075m.“There’s not that classic street appeal but internally, it’s like a chalet,” Mr Burton said of the 1499sq m property.Built like a Swiss Chalet.“We’re not quite as adventurous as (Ross Miller) was but we are very active and we love bushwalking and we did notice the rock climbing wall. We might set that up.”More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa7 hours agoParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoMrs Miller has continued hiking and will travel to the Scenic Rim on the school holidays to be the Girraween National Park camp host.“You meet and greet campers and give them advice on where to go through the national parks,” she said.Annette and Ross met in 1990 while on a three day hike near Cunningham’s Gap in 1990.Their outdoor interests expanded to include cycling, skiing, rogaining, mountaineering and rock climbing.Their honeymoon in 1996 was a 20-day bushwalk in the spectacular West McDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory, including the world-famous Larapinta Trail.The Larapinta Trail in Central Australia.FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

first_imgEditor’s Note: This awesome MateBook X Pro deal is still going strong. Be sure to also bookmark our Best Cyber Monday Deals hub for the best savings of the season.When you’re buying an expensive machine that cost upwards of $1,000, any bit of cash you can save is a win. That’s what makes this $150 discount on a fully-loaded $1,499 MateBook X Pro laptop such a steal. That, and it’s the first time we’ve seen a deal on this system.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

You get a 13.9-inch laptop with a 3K 3000 x 2000-pixel touch display, Core i7 CPU, 512GB, a killer 16GB of RAM, a mix of USB Type-A and Type-C ports, Thunderbolt 3, and a Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU with 2GB of video memory.Buy on Microsoft.comBuy on B&H.comYou can take advantage of this discount at Microsoft or at B&H, both of which are selling the fully-stacked MateBook X Pro as well as the Core i5, 256GB SSD configuration.Before we go on, you should know that the Core i7 version is a laptop we’ve examined, tested, and benchmarked. It earned 4.5 stars and a Laptop Mag Editors’ Choice award. Henry T. Casey, our senior writer covering laptops and tablets, said its the kind of PC that “I wish Apple would make.” He then added that “…it might also be my next laptop.”Makes sense too, because the design is simple and clean enough to mimic Apple’s signature style without being an outright clone.Plus, in some ways, the MateBook X Pro outshines the MacBook Pro. Its display is one example. The 458-nit screen is brighter than the Surface Book 2 (417 nits), the Dell XPS 15  (371 nits), the HP Spectre X360 (340 nits) and the 15-inch 2018 MacBook Pro (354 nits). (That doesn’t mean we didn’t enjoy the MacBook Pro’s colorful TrueTone 2880 x 1800-pixel screen, though. The MateBook X Pro is just brighter.)The battery life on our review unit (same as the config on sale) is also a phenomenal 9 hours and 55 minutes. That’s not the longest we’ve seen a laptop go, but it is definitely note-worthy.Of course, everything’s not perfect: the MateBook X Pro’s webcam is built into the keyboard and that makes for awkward angles of your face during calls. But at the time of our review, our only complaint was that the MateBook X Pro was hard to buy in the U.S. No retailers were selling it. Now you’ve got two U.S. stores offering a good price cut on this premium system.The Best Deals on Laptops, Tablets and 2-in-1sThe Best Refurbished Laptop DealsThe Best Tech and Gadget Deals (via Tom’s Guide) by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoForbesAmerica’s Richest Self-Made WomenForbesUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more
