The one at Potts Point is the original store been there over thirty years, they do a variety of blends and roast daily on the premises.

Right, right. I'd heard the gup sup about Hernandez and thought the Darlo shop was the only one; like I said it was ok but now I will have to give the original a try.

Well no real Australians care about the Lions win; we care about the Australian game, not an inferior import. Murray is a Scot, so I can identify with him through my Celtic background. And their African rider only leads the TdF because of the help given by an Australian, so we can take credit for that.

Infidel! Blasphemer. For my part I don't even consider cross country basketball to be football.

Attention Brisbane Members

Tie Rack, Myer Centre is having a closing down sale.

50-80% everything in the store.

I went there today and saw $2.00 pocket squares. $8.00 ties.

Some pretty decent silk print and knit ties. Most are fairly narrow. Theres a mix of Chinese and Italian made items.

Didnt see any knit ties. Most of the ties were crap so I didnt really pay attention to them. The pocket squares were pretty average but at $2 I grabbed the last decent looking one. Also picked up a couple of socks. The sock monster ate a couple of my socks so I needed and extra pair. At $6 I cant complain

The knit ties were hidden behind all the silk ties. They did have some fairly decent regimental ties there as well. Yes the pocket squares were done to dull plain colors. The decent ones all gone. When I when their last week, things were looking alot better.

As much as I'm sure Richie Porte is a fantastic bloke just for being born in Australia, I'd be willing to put a significant chunk of cash down while saying that Team Sky are doped to the gills. Not that the rest aren't, but I think a few could be once bitten, twice shy (Contador for one).

A very subjective area, but I have done OK with Manyung Gallery for contemporary Australian stuff. Their Glenferrie Rd gallery would be fairly close to you. There's quite a few spots along High St Armadale near there where you may find something. Hit the antiques barns as well - I've seen some nice stuff at some of those, including Jean Miro.

That rumour was doing the rounds, but I'd suggest their sub-par perfomance last night scotched that. If they'd rocked up and repeated the dose with no ill effects after Saturday, that might have raised more eyebrows.

Think you need to approach it from the perspective of how much you want to spend first up. Then look online at a site which would list independent galleries. Also are you after a print, lithograph, drawing photograph? Do you want something by a name or an up and coming artist?

I have a variety of works, prints, paintings lithographs photographs which I have picked up over the years, a few by names, but don't know any up and coming visual artists I would love more wall space to be honest.
