Food for thought for a mere eight dollars


There was a time when all my belongings could be tied up in a red-spotted handkerchief and carried on a stick across the shoulder, and when the only accumulation that took place was in my bank account. Those were the days before "Riverbend" allowed me to accumulate more and more and op-shops to do so for less and less.

My latest acquisitions are this little gem of a movie, in French but with English subtitles to help me get over the too-hard bits, and three books: "Generations - Baby Boomers, their parents & their children" and "The Art of Belonging - It's not where you live, it's how you live", both by distinguished social researcher and novelist Hugh Mackay, and "Great South Land - How Dutch Sailors found Australia and an English Pirate almost beat Captain Cook ..." by Rob Mundle.

That's a lot of "food for thought" for a mere eight dollars.
