Thursday’s Special: Past

Stu’s great uncle is buried in France. The “Great War” wasn’t really so great, was it.

What a shame mankind doesn’t learn from their past.

Incremental: Up, up, up!

A few years ago, when we were in London, we visited Harrod’s. Not everything was unaffordable but we were stunned by the prices of the meat.

As you look higher up the board, the cuts become more and more expensive until you reach the Wagyu ribeye at the incredible price of £33.00.

More incredible still, if you look closely at the board you’ll see that this is per 100 grams.

At today’s exchange rate, that’s about $530/kilo in Australian currency.

Ouch! I’ve never wanted a piece of steak that badly.

Even the T-bone works out to about $160/kilo, and that’s a pretty standard cut here in Oz and fairly affordable at about $21/kilo.

Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past

Norfolk Island has a history of convict settlements. This picture depicts some of the ruins from that time.

After the end of the 2nd convict settlement, Queen Victoria granted the island to the descendants of the Bounty mutineers. Many of their families still live there today.

Deconstruction

This is my first entry in a Thursday Special. I’m not entirely sure I’ve done justice to the philosophical principles of “deconstruction”, but here it is.

I’m starting to think about packing for our upcoming holiday, so I “deconstructed” one of my outfits.
