Welcome to Catalogue 229, April 2020. Sitting here in splendid isolation, me downstairs surrounded by books, her upstairs beavering away with her Festival work. I get to speak to lots of people on the phone (and her with back-to-back Zoom conferences) but I haven't sighted another human in the flesh besides my beloved. Food deliveries from restaur...

Welcome to Catalogue #228. It’s been a fraught summer with February here in Perth still a diabolically hot month. We’ve watched the catastrophes of fire and flood in the East with a few fires here but generally just hot and dry. The flooding rains in Qld and NSW were a welcome respite for the thousands of farmers and towns reduced to trucking ...

Welcome to Catalogue #227 February 2020. This list is dedicated to our gallant fire fighters who have worked tirelessly to halt the conflagration. It’s tragic that people lose their lives to protect others. We expect that when we pack soldiers off to some war or other but our civilians should be safe in their own homes. And to see three American...

Welcome to 2020 and a January Catalogue #226 which I normally avoid so I can have a month off.  But...the extenuating circumstances of the conflagration of bush fires along the east coast, Tassie and in south west WA caused me to step back from our normal Christmas and New Year celebrations and think about the hundreds of families who’ve lost e...

Welcome to Catalogue #224, November 2019. Today (31 Oct) we celebrate the wonderfully successful charge on Beersheba by the 4th Australian Light Horse Brigade in 1917. Known as ‘the last great cavalry charge’, they rode helter-skelter over 6 kms of open ground, jumped the leading Turkish trenches and stormed into Beersheba town (more a small c...

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 #221, August 2019.  We’ve had a pretty cool winter here in the wild west but things are looking up as spring approaches. As an experiment we’ve not used any heaters in the house downstairs and upstairs this winter. Wearing more clothes and blankets on the lounge is the answer. There are many recently acquired titles i...

Welcome to list #220, July 2019. As the dead of winter approaches here in Perth we wait the impending arrival of our Canadian family, Toby, Meg, Cormac and Brigid. Winter here will be a doddle for them as they are used to Canadian severe winters. But… their houses are all centrally heated whereas we just put on a house coat and a knee rug if req...

Welcome to Catalogue #219. You couldn't really call it the depths of winter yet but it’s still a bit chilly here in Perth of a morning. We’ve resolved to not use the heater much this winter as our contribution to the climate change debate. A good house coat and a blanket on the lounge at night do the job. So...to books. Quite a few rare t...
