slow down on the port, red wine and prawns ralph
If only Andy... :-) I used to love Port and enjoy a social drink generally, but I have found that in recent years, alcohol of any kind has a very diminished appeal. I do like prawns, but as most of those available I supermarkets these days are nearly always 'farmed' and from warm waters, they are losing their appeal too. :(

I just have to put up these photos, it was magnificent, and how I wish we had it in Australia, between Melbourne to Sydney, and Sydney to Brisbane, how good would that be!! I'm so jealous now.
Our trip on a Mag Lev train in Shanghai, we did 30 kms in 7 minutes. Speed went up to 432 kms per hour!
So we had another Mag Lev train pass us, meaning mathematically, it was 860kms we passed each other?
It was like "Whoosh".

430 klm nice and quick half the speed of a jet liner, you know if both crashed head on the total speed of the crash would be 430 that is if both weighed the same.

A friend of mine os a ship chandler and I got 10 kgs of green king prawns for $150, delightful when sate'd or rissoles, cheaper than buying steak.
