Well I never...

When I watch the Australian Open Tennis on TV I don't take much notice of the subtle advertising on the players' clothing but one little badge (that is a bit hard for old eyes to read) has always intrigued me.

I wondered how the University of Queensland was able to get several highly ranked players to promote them via these simple red and white badges.

Wandering down Powell Street in San Francisco yesterday I got my answer. The badges aren't advertising the University of Queensland . They are advertising a clothing retailer, UNIQLO.

Silly me!

A Tiny White Centre

I've long been a fan of Bougainvillea but only realised today when I was examining our plant that the blooms have a tiny white centre.

Stairway to Paradise

I loved this set of stairs that I came across yesterday near the Visitors' Information Centre at Glenbrook in The Blue Mountains.

They list (in order I think) the towns and villages in The Beautiful Blue Mountains that is one of the beautiful areas in our State of New South Wales.

A Great Invention

Fellow Australian, Hugh Jackman, said "To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions." I would add that drinking it is pretty darned special too.

 It is coincidental but most appropriate that, on International Coffee Day, we welcomed a new coffee machine into our home.

The first cup was hot and delicious and the machine behaved better then the one it replaced.  Thanks to Barista Bob for getting the new gadget up and running.

New in our kitchen

Just came across this tissue pack that was among the delegate goodies in a conference bag earlier this year.
What does it say about the demographic of genies when a funeral director is a conference sponsor?
