Exciting news! Paul has sent over a lovely stack of Mercurio’s Menu disks for me to put online. Yep, now everyone can watch entire episodes! They take a while to process, but I’ll put them up as quickly as possible. They will be uploaded to Youtube in three parts (youtube only allows 10 minute videos). Here’s the first episode, Hunter Valley:

Introducing Selby

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Selby 042 resize.jpg
We brought Selby into the family a few weeks ago and he is an absolutely lovely if slightly cheeky little puppy. He is a white shephard/husky cross with a little bit of samoid in there also.
Some people have commented on the fact that we got a replacement for Lady – which has annoyed me – nothing can replace Lady – Selby is a new member of our family, a companion to Charlie and a big white gaurd dog for Andrea and the Gilrs when I go away. I miss Lady very much and every time I get on to the Corner I see her and it hurts a little that she just went so fast and without warning….
The photo of Selby is when we had just brought him home and now hwe is twice as big so I wil post another photo soon.
