So just received the Thomas Lyte briefcase... really, really nice - well worth the money I think. The shoulder strap uses an interesting attachment method - it's basically a leather strap with two holes which a couple metal studs slot into, and you strap it onto the d-rings as if you would a belt. Quite a nice 'rustic' touch.

Looking forward to changing out the crappy stock strap on my Timex Easy Reader for one of these. Now if only the Germans would hurry up with their postage and get the Junghans Max Bill to me... the suspense is killin' me!
Do post! They are all so darn smexiful!

Very, very highly recommend their Baramundi (spell check wants to change that last word to "Barmaid" biggrin.gif). Awesome service and food was sensational.

Ended up having brunch at Hardware Street Societé (?), highly recommend their baked eggs... Thinking about canning the idea of moving back to UK and moving to Melbourne instead but we reckon we'd be enormous if I lived in a city with such great food, everywhere!

Good to hear Smudge, glad you enjoyed it.  Sitting at the food prep tables are great I think.  Learned some good tips and like you say, you can see and watch everyone who comes in.  Will try the 'Barmaid' next time Im there.

All hail Ned Ludd!

Ahh I see we a Dostoyevsky fan.  Just finished 'Notes from the Underground', a publication that included 'The Double'.  Started Crime and Punishment over the weekend...geesh what a read.

You ever cook them using the method Heston Blumenthal showed off? Slowly, over a pot of simmering water. Turns out lovely.

Nope, but I'm definitely going to look this method up now. Might have to try this out in the next few days... nod[1].gif

You wont regret it NDC, I had several take aways on cooking eggs, such a simple thing...apparently - Heston had several great tips. I think its still online if you search.  Tried the poached over the weekend, fabulous.

+1, Thought l better not say anything or everyone will think l'm a wierdo biggrin.gif

 

Perhaps NDC you could whip a tortia? All you need is a bag of spuds, paprika, garlic, chorizo................... and Sangria

Or if your a sweet tooth use the yoke with cream, vanilla pod, lemon rind and make creme brulee? Use the discarded whites and make meringue. I'm sure a SF meet will be around the corner and the boys will be hungry.....

Rockit Barber - great cut! They were super busy though. Just caught a quiet 10 mins at around 10 am. Those guys are really passionate about hair, and it shows. btw, Melbourne meet up this Friday? I like Siglo, and can make the booking - Gerry and Matt had expressed interest earlier in the thread...
