Food Glorious Food…

You know, the next line in the song is “Hot caramel custard”.  And, whilst I am not really into custard all that much, I probably could be talked into it.  I am a sweet tooth, after all, and I will pretty much pine after anything made with sugar.  When I think about what I have eaten in the past it disturbs me somewhat.  In the days BHA[Before Heart Attack] I would have had no problems knocking off a packet of Tim Tams in one sitting… By myself… Once married, it became harder as Mrs Dave has a sweet tooth too.  I never really suggested two packets, although at times I’m sure we were both thinking it.

And another thing…

So, I had my heart attack, went into hospital and the cardiac mechanics there did a great job at a grease and oil change.  It’s difficult to describe the euphoria one feels when the medicos relieve that pain from your chest.  As I have already said, it  made the choices I am now making in my life obvious.  A second chance… Who wouldn’t want that?

The Courthouse

So we did.  The Courthouse was the closest menu with a hat, and a steak, so we were off. Continue reading

spectacle: elvis costello with…

Lately, I have been watching some episodes of a sensational music/interview program fronted by musical doyen Elvis Costello. It is a great show because it melds well researched and thoughtfully written interviews with live performances by the guests and Elvis himself as well as gorgeous duets. Continue reading

The French Lettuce

Oh My God! That’s right. Its so good I spelt it out…

While I was having my head shorn this arvo, Mrs Dave took a spin up to The French Lettuce[TFL] in the disco to get us some francofilian goodness for lunch. Now, I’ve always been a fan of TFL but todays effort reminded me to share the love. Continue reading
