End of an Era.... Beginning of an Era...

Some of you may know about the closure of the patient advice forums at Stop the Thyroid Madness, but what you may not know, is that there are new patient advice forums available in just 24 hours from now, at Real Thyroid Help.

Many of the same people you know and love from Stop the Thyroid Madness will be there, and come along and visit me at the Australian forum :)

Five More Things...

Sunshine offered us the list of five things she can't leave home without... now it's my turn :)

1, mobile phone - it has all of my appointments as well as my contacts and a video and still camera in one unit, very versatile :)

2, sunglasses - I still can't get around without sunglasses, glare and my eyes don't go together well.

3, water - just need my H2O

4, warm clothing - I don't thermoregulate well so I usually lug a jacket around with me even in the warmest weather, never know when I'm going to shiver.

5, keys - my memory is bad, so to make sure I can always get into whatever I want to get into, keys are permanently on hand.

Hmm I feel a bit boring after that, it would have been wonderful to say I carry a notebook or a sketch pad and record scenes of life as they strike me, or a petition for world peace and invite everyone I meet to sign it, the complete works of Shakespeare trying to access classical literature, mind you, I never could get into Shakespeare, my parents had the complete works of George Bernard Shaw, Shakespeare and a King James Bible, the only one I ever read and enjoyed was the Shaw, not for lack of trying, but I guess the language of the other two, being much older English, was much harder to access as I did begin reading them before I attained double digits of age. Wonder what I'd make of them now? :)

Just to mock me

because they honestly never really share, here they are sharing a "blankie". They have separate blankies so that they can have their own territory and yet be close together, this time, they went for sharesies.

The bright green flashes on the collar are the free petregister.com.au registration tags, the white blob is my thumb in front of the camera and the general crumminess is the indoor potential of my mobile phone camera (2mp) with flash.

Shaun Micallef, an underrated comedy genius of whom we now only get tantalising glimpses on Thank God You're Here, hopefully he'll still be there if they get to season 3.

For now, go back in time a decade or more, and see Shaun Micallef as David McGahan playing Roger Explosion...




Not sure how I stumbled across this very young looking Shaun Micallef clip, this must be at least 10 years old? now to find me some roger explosion clips!

More Market...

I first started shopping at the Market regularly in about 1986 or so, Fiona and I used to shop there, we were very enamoured of Ally Fricker's Food Conspiracy, the only 100% organic fruit and vegetable stall there at the time.
You can imagine my disappointment that I was unable to google any reference to Ally Fricker's Food Conspiracy all these years later, such a landmark stall it was.
The same stall is still organic, it just isn't Fricker's Food Conspiracy any longer, and is no longer the only organic stall around either.

Market days involved lunch at the Malacca Corner which was always vegetarian poh pia, vego laksa and a coconut bun, or Clearlight Cafe back when it was in Rundle Street and several owners and incarnations ago - well it was the 80's :)

It was quite a treat to fire up Frieda, my HD Holden, lug my backpack around and fill it with fresh goodies, then savour an afternoon of delightful cafe fare. :-)

Central Market

I just tried to post these links on Sunshine's blog, and they were truncated.

I love the Adelaide Central Market!!!

I only recently found out it's the largest fresh food market in the Southern Hemisphere, that's a double happiness for me :)



Even More

Yes, there's more

Still more..

Just a bit more

Had enough yet?

One more.....
