Needed 5 eggs. The first four were double yolkers. 
Five eggs, nine yolks.

The average minimum and maximum temperatures
in Melbourne in November since I was born in 1954. Both are trending up.

Doesn't look happy...


Coming home from a pro-ABC rally, our tram had an argument with the overhead wires.

Came off second best.

Olives, olives, olives.


Last night's dinner featured black olives in each course.



A cold platter to start with green and black olives in there.




The last course, with candied black olives as a garnish.
(Yes, that is beetroot under the chocolate mousse.)

I forgot to photograph the main course - a chicken, red & yellow peppers and black olives dish.

No a lot to be proud of.
