Good morning everyone from sunny Victor Harbor

The sun is just coming up, it looks lovely looking out the window, the water looks so calm

Not a bad sleep, had the air con on all night and the temps have changed, it is going to be 35c here today

We are going to go for a little walk on the beach and then to have a cooked breakfast at the hotel restaurant, as they open at 7.30am

We are then going to be doing a bit of driving, will be good as we have nice air conditioning in the car...we are heading to Normanville then Second Valley and down to Cape Jarvis....we will stop at one of their bakeries and have another cake...naughty

Time to go now

I just took a ribeye and some bacon out of the freezer for tonight's dinner. I wish I had taken the steak out earlier, but I'm watching "Knowing". I love that movie.
The TV is on in the kitchen now in case I need to pass through...

Trying to get up the energy to finish off my running around stuff so I can relax. The Voice starts again tonight and I would like to sit and watch.

My pleasure. I'm so glad you enjoyed my fantasy as well.

I've always wanted to visit down under.

I've always admired Aussies and as an American I recommend this book that illustrates the origins of the independent and self sufficient spirit of our Aussie brethren.

Thanks, Andy, and everyone. He was very pleased with my breathing test results and also how I am feeling. When I told him I have only used my emergency inhaler 2 times since I saw him in August HE was ready to do the happy dance. I am on Singular now and it really seems to be helping. He renewed my prescriptions for once year (I had originally been going to him every 3 months, then this last time was 7 months, now a year!) and put down one for prednisone just to have on file as an emergency.

With all my medical stuff I can't tell you how good it feels when I have a successful appointment! I really like this doctor - I have only had him for almost 2 years since my previous one retired, but all my improvements have been in that time. I have been having a bad pain day, but TB said he could tell it went well just watching me come down the hallway. He said I had a strut to my step - not that easy with a gimped knee, fractured back and a cane But I'll take it any day!

Good to hear you're feeling so much better, and got a good report, LP!

I've always admired Aussies and as an American I recommend this book that illustrates the origins of the independent and self sufficient spirit of our Aussie brethren.

The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia's Founding by Robert Hughes - Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists
One of the things that has always amused me is that the Aussies consider those whose ancestors were part of the original prisoners to be the "bluebloods" just as we Americans consider those who ancestors came over on the Mayflower are our "bluebloods." I can just hear an arguement.

"Well my ancestor sat in prison for murdering a shopkeep because he wouldn't give him a loaf of bread to feed his family."

"Oh yeah? Well my ancestor was standing on the gallows with the rope around his neck for trying to kill the Prince of Wales."

The more dastardly the crime, the higher they stand.

Considering how Austrailia was settled, you have to admit, there has to be some very colorful stories and characters there.
