Hi !!

Hello Friends,

Just a quick hello today from foggy Melbourne. It is currently 10 past 2 on Tuesday afternoon, and only now is the sun starting to pierce through the fog. It was a real pea-souper ... guess who didn't take any photos, though !?!?! I haven't seen it quite this bad for some time. Planes were grounded, and others had to be diverted ... the fog was too thick around the airport !! It seems that it was a universal fog ... all of Melbourne was covered ... from the airport in the north-west, to the outer suburbs where I live, in the east ... and beyond, too, I guess !! More to come in the next few days, too, apparently.

I have a day off today, and have been busy playing with my new multi-function printer. I bought a Canon Pixma MP610, and I got it for a ripper price !! It prints / copies / scans. The print quality of the photos is supposedly photo-lab quality. I have printed a few photos already, and am hugely impressed. Much better than the last printer (which has gone to the great printer-graveyard in the sky !!). I am quite pleased, too, as I just received my latest Choice Magazine (a consumer guide magazine), which lists this printer as the best-buy ... it received great percentages in all the tests, and only came second on the list to another Canon, which was about $100 more expensive !! Whoo-hoo ... I'm glad this one called out to me to buy it !!!

I thought I'd share a few photos from our most recent drive into the high country, a couple of weeks ago. It is really beautiful up there.

Anyway, that's enough from me for now. Hope you are all having a great week.

I'll be back soon ...

Take care,

PS ... I owe a huge apology to all those bloggers whose birthdays I have neglected to acknowledge. A huge happy birthday to everyone who has celebrated a birthday these past few months ... hope you had wonderful days. I really need to organise myself better so I don't keep forgetting things !!
