    Here’s something new for all you oldies. Have faith in 21st century music – don’t think that what plays on the radio is all there is. Quality is still out there.

    And her was I thinking that you were religiously folding over 100 of those little raffle tickets, putting them all into a hat (or similar scrabble-type receptacle) and letting one of the kids draw a number out.

    Still, spose we’ve gotta move with the digital times.

  5. kezza2,

    We’re handling the heat here OK. Keeping our birds cool is a big job though. Gotta keep spraying water on them and changing their water often.

    I feel sure my daughter, her partner & young Eli will be feeling it though. They arrived at their new home for the next 3 years or so yesterday evening.

    The mean summer temperature there is something like 44.2c according to BOM. They do have 5 aircon units in the house though and other than the bother of the elec bill, I expect they will make good use of them.

    Young Eli is going great. He is over his expected normal birth weight for this time and has a pretty good appetite. We thoroughly enjoyed having them here over the X-mas/New Year period and are missing them already.

    Thank you for asking and sorry to be so long replying. It gets a bit busy here at times. ;-)

  8. I do.

    And I think the blokes in the bar at Y&J’s were just a bunch of perves, quite frankly, who loved a joke a female’s expense. Bit like the Coalition and Larry Pickering today. No class, all arse. Tres boringment.

    All you have to do if you can’t see what you’ve written because of an unexpanded box(I’m not going there :) ), is hit ‘Enter’ and all will be revealed. It seems to be a quirk of this blog engine.

    But this only happens to me when the blog decides to go all html, otherwise it’s fine. And I’m pretty sure it has to do with my computer.

    Still, you haven’t read “Breath” by Tim Winton have you. I need to know what happened in the last quarter – spoiler doesn’t worry me.

    I think I went to Y&J in 1980. Haven’t been back to Melbourne since then except once, to see three operas in two days.

  12. Actually, Duck, Cille and I went there specifically to see Chloe.

    To see what all the fuss was about.

    It was hilarious. The blokes didn’t know how to talk to us nor where to look, and were very possessive of Chloe.

    So, we just marched up to the bar, got a drink and went and stood in front of Chloe.

    I’m trying to think when it was. Cille would have been 20 in 1979, so it was probably the year before, and if I remember correctly there had been some discussion about removing her for renovations, and it wasn’t clear if she was going to be returned. Cille was an art student at the time.

    it’s nothing like I remember.

    Green door on the corner entryway, on the corner of Flinders and Swanston as if it didn’t know which street to open on (or it actually did so), bar on the left, and Chloe on the right-hand wall.

    Can we start a list of authors who have had more written about their works than they wrote?

    For starters: Willie The Shake and Germaine Greer.

  19. C@t,

    I’ve read a few by Tim Winton. I like his distinctive Australian style but I really don’t like his portrayal of women. For all his wonderful turn of phrase, he really has no feel for creating a 3D woman.

    Likewise Gore Vidal, but if he’s written anything other than historical fiction, then I haven’t.

    Anyway, must away, I have to edit a document in the morning, early.
    Cheers.

    I am miffed that I missed the Friday Night Frolics – Wireless went haywire last night and I ended up having to shut down. Must have been the heat distorting signals or something. We had a 48 yesterday and it was still 44 at 8pm. The change didn’t arrive here until after midnight.

  25. IF there is one thing that must really frustrate voters it is the narrow partisanship our political class adheres to. There is virtually no such thing in this country as a politician breaking ranks from their party to vote according to their conscience. And believe you me, the political class do not always agree with the policies their leaders put forward.

    I think you can blame that completely on the media. Especially with the Labor party, if any person says anything contrary to the political line, all of a sudden there is disunity, split, etc. Libs and Nats get away with it because it is good, but if it happens in Labor it’s bad. I thought you would have realised that by now. :-)
