Four 3oz bottles of Noodler’s Ink.

Brings back good memories.

“People were asking if they could trust their governments, if they could trust science, how would they deal with large scale, distributed risk, what was the role of dissident scientists and the anti-vaxxers, the lies. The paranoia didn’t start with COVID-19, it was all there 30 years ago.”

This is a fascinating ten part podcast shining a light on 1990s Britain that was hit by an epidemic of a fatal neurological disease in cows that also killed 178 humans.

First snake 🐍 sighting of the season. My usual walk by the Yarra river, Toorak VIC 3142.

I’ve treasured Buffalo Mountains (1913) by Arthur Streeton (1867 - 1943) for many years. The granite formidable and enduring, truly ancient. #Castlemaine #Art #Museum

Even after 45 years there’s nothing I’d change about Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush.

The Yarra Trail, walking towards Melbourne CBD.

My happy place.

Crisp early morning. Corner of Flinders Lane and Russell Street, Melbourne CBD.

“Everything counts in large amounts…🎶🎵”… except #espresso ☕️ which is my canonical #coffee reference point. A single, unadulterated shot makes comparisons between beans, roasts and baristas so much more straightforward.

Even after 40 years there’s nothing I’d change about this song. (Everything Counts, Depeche Mode).
