Welcome to Catalogue #223, Spring 2019. Here in Perth the weather is heating up nicely and my controlled stagger around Hyde Park is a joy. We’ve been following the progress of a family of black swans, mum, dad and 5 babies (sadly there were only 4 babies this morning). They produce a clutch every spring and whilst initially very protective of t...

Welcome to Catalogue #218, May 2019. ANZAC Day has come and gone and I must say the day is starting to get to me. The Dawn Service at Swanbourne was beautifully done by all concerned and the members we’ve lost since 1957 were respectfully commemorated with their images projected on a wall of the old MI building. It brought a tear to many a jaund...

Welcome to Catalogue #217. Ah April! Doncha just love it! The autumn breezes have blown the WA heat away and we can at last rest easily at night. It’s a long haul here in WA, from September to April, as hot as hades in February and just hot the rest of the time. But...I’m not whinging knowing what thousands of people have gone through with...

Welcome to Catalogue #216 of March 2019. Whilst it’s only a short list this time, there are some memorable titles on it. Here in the West we’ve had some scorching weather (as February always is) but nothing to match the crazy weather in the Eastern states from floods and bushfires. The loss of life is always worrying especially losing thousand...

On 11 November 2018 we pause to remember those thousands of diggers who gave their lives in the cause of the British Empire. We lost around 60,000 KI...

Welcome to Catalogue 211, Sep 2018. Apologies for missing the last one (Aug) but we’d taken ourselves to Canada and the US.

A beautiful town Oswego, right on...

Winter is coming!! As Catalogue 209 hits the streets/airwaves we have a nice little cooling down here in Perth after a long hot summer. Heavy rain the other day was a welcome respite and does wonders for Hyde Park lake/s and Jo’s gardens. But we’re in for a dry winter. Poor old farmers, can’t take a trick. In WA, dry seeding is the best many ...
