Melbourne's weather this April…
I can hear you thinking this may well be the dullest post I have posted yet - but hold on! I stumbled on this site yesterday after marveling at the fact that despite it being mid April Elfie, Apple and I were planning to spend the afternoon down at the beach in Rye. I stumbled upon this site, Meterology.com, and found it to be intresting and packed with all the sort of random facts I love! **The screen shots are from the Meterology website taken Wednesday 17th April, 2012. Can you imagine ... Read More

Offspring Season 3…
Yay for Offspring season 3 starting tonight on Chanel 10 but it has made me realize I need to organizes my next OP (Offspring Plan) tour where friends and I use the show as an excuse to explore a bit of Melbourne and visit some bars and restaurants. It's been lovely how many emails and comments I have had about the show and how many people love the idea of an Offspring themed outing (destinations not neurotic (but lovable) family fights in public). Whats been even cooler (yes, I may well be stuck ... Read More

Why, is that Elphaba Grace…
Yes, my little Yorkie puppy now has a name: Elphaba "Elfie" Grace. While I shall be honest Grace has substantially more to do with the Grace Kelly Exhibition we visited the weekend I got her than her character - Moxy or Gumption would have been better middle names had that been what I was after - the name completely suits her. Elfie has had all her shots and this little Yorkie at 11 weeks (thanks to the ten week vaccination) will be ready to play in Melbourne as of Wednesday! I can't wait to take ... Read More

Melbourne gets a 24/7 Post Office…
  Yesterday, as I was flipping through the MX I was pleased to discover an article revealing that Melbourne now has a 24/7 Post Office Super Store! The SuperStore will be a 'zone' set up at the 111 Bourke St Post Office that will offer vending machines, parcel lockers (!!!!!!!!), and self service terminals. It will also have a Harvey World Travel store and an American Express Currency Exchange outlet. To oversee the 'zone' a concierge will also be available. But for me it's the parcel service ...

Heffernan Lane, Melbourne…

Heffernan Lane, Melbourne…
I really like how random Melbourne can be and Heffernan Lane, sandwiched (or dumplinged or pita'ed - you will get this humor soon) between Lt Bourke and Lonsdale is a perfect example.   As a part of the Laneways Commisions in 2001-2 a Word and Ways installation was set up by Evangelos Sakaris. The random assortment of street signs is tucked between China Town and Little Greece and features quotes from Lao Tzy a Chinese philosopher and Herclitus a Greek philosopher. If my earlier joke ...
