Random notes on a rainy Tuesday

Considering that a book that costs $36 from Borders can be had by just over $14 from the UK, including shipping, I can’t really see what’s the big deal with Amazon charging more for e-books from Australians than from Americans. In fact, a 40% surcharge sounds like a great deal.

The lack of available books, now, that’s a big problem. Not Amazon’s fault, though.


Just over a week ago, I visited the Tesselaar Tulip Festival, up in Silvan. Beautiful flowers, not so beautiful weather… The best pictures are here. (also in the album below, if you have Flash enabled)


I have wondered about this more than once… Why are there no calorie counts on pet food labels? (for reference: dry food is much more caloric than wet food)

Ah, it’s been ages since I’ve been up there – is the Wishing Well nursery still there? Rainy weather is the best time to enjoy that area, as everything is so much more alive.
