    Ruminations From My Veranda #44: Spring has sprung

    Spring Has Sprung - of boids, grass and coffee!

    The spring is sprung, the grass is riz.
    I wonder where the boidie is.
    They say the boidieís on the wing.
    But thatís absoid. The wing is on the bird.

    And so Ogden Nash introduced us to not just Spring, but an unforgettable piece of nonsense poetry! Here we are, it's Spring and in Melbourne we are celebrating the second consecutive fine day!

    The Songs of Robert Lloyd at Holy Trinity Church



    MelbourneEast Arts Festival


    Robert Lloyd has served the Australian and International Arts/Music world since 1986. Beginning in Adelaide he has travelled the world performing and composing his unique music and songs.

    I have a couple of Robertís albums but have seen little of him live so it was wonderful to be invited to see his performance at Holy Trinity Church in East Melbourne, a show that is part of the MelbourneEast Arts Festival.

  • The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman

    The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman

  • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    Iraqi Civil War



    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?
    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...

  • Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow
    by Isobel Blackthorn



    Kathryn Gossow is a masterful storyteller who displays great insight and sensitivity in her handling of difficult themes. The result, her debut novel Cassandra, is an extraordinary and engaging coming of age tale.


    On a remote farm in Queensland, Cassie Shultz feels useless. Her perfect brother Alex has an uncanny ability to predict the weather, and the fortunes of the entire family hinge upon his forecasts. However, her own gift for prophecy remains frustratingly...
