ON SAFARI AT WERRIBEE


"And I promise you I'll never desert you again because after 'Salome' we'll make another picture and another picture. You see, this is my life! It always will be! Nothing else! Just us, the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark!... All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." Norma Desmond - Sunset Boulevard.

No trip to Melbourne is complete without a visit to Werribee Zoo. Where's my moisturiser? - J&J.

Ten20 Foundation Christmas Trees


Our search for the perfect Christmas Tree this year lead us to the Ten20 Foundation, 1125 Nepean Highway Highett. Hugh, James and Lewis kindly agreed to a photograph after helping us select just the right tree and loading it into the car for us. The Ten20 Foundation provides support for 20 communities committed to Australia's most vulnerable children and young people.  Why not get a tree and help support a great cause at the same time.

Tip ... take an old fitted sheet with you and place the tree inside it before putting it into the hatch back and carrying it inside.  Minimises pine needle fallout.  Merry Christmas from Mr & Mrs J.

MELBOURNE IN BLACK AND WHITE


I don't know whether its the sound of the hooves on the street, the unexpected appearance of spoked wheels rolling through a busy city, or the coachman and his passengers but my head always turns when a carriage passes by.  Bon Vivant J&J.
