Yeah, it is an OT post but today was one of those balmy days in the Temperate Zone of Australia. A very liveable 24 degrees, no cloud and not a breath of wind.

The morning was spent doing business in the village and then a light lunch was enjoyed together with copious amounts of chilled Lambrusca Chateau Cardboard in our vineyard followed by an afternoon snooze.

What more could young pensioner want?.....LOL

Getting ready for the winter season of adventures in the outback.


Cheers

La Dolce Vita....
Set in Rome in the 1950s where Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni) covers the more sensational side of the news; movie stars, religious visions, and the decadent aristocracy. The film shows seven days and nights in the life of the reporter. Marcello is living with Emma (Yvonne Furneaux), a woman who loves him and wants a traditional marriage, but she is possessive and shows little ability to understand his unarticulated search for value and meaning in his life. He has encounters with other women – Maddalena (Anouk Aimée), a beautiful, wealthy, and jaded friend/lover, and Anita Ekberg as an American movie star named Sylvia. Marcello also briefly meets an unspoiled and charming girl working at a beachside restaurant.

Maybe a bit of the above ? LOL

Well Young Man,

It sounds just like my Sunday Arvo.

Nothing like a Sunday Lunch with a quiet drink, followed by a quiet Kip to get one ready for the next week's work.

Regards,

Jim.

GDay Willem. Nice to hear that you are having nice weather in your vineyard. Local TV news tonight in newcastle said to hang on to any Hunter Valley Shiraz you may have left as there will be very little this year. They showed film of the bunches rotting on the vines. Much too much rain. On the other hand the whites are supposed to be ok and plenty of it? Do you want us to send you some rain? Some mates from the local bushwalking club were in Southoz up to this week and they cant believe how dry it is. We cant believe how wet it is here. Regards.
