    I'm still waiting on my BP sunnies - needed to double check and refine my astigmatism script and will be ordering a polarized lens to put in them. They should be in by Friday. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with my optical pair, the Blakes in green. They are more of a black in indoor lighting and only really show dark green in direct sunlight. Had a great pair of Zeiss lenses put in. Excellent fit and make - my best pair of opticals bar none. Lots of compliments on them, as it changed my looked quite a bit.

    My brother has been at the Armoury and might be picking up a pair of nackymade frames, lucky bastard. Got to try on some Ring Jacket and the fit is like no other RTW...

    Anyone still watching the tennis? First set was a complete write off!

    I've got two pair of the Herring Stratfords. One black and one that Tan. They are some of my most comfortable footwear as they fit well and support the "floppy" ankles. And come up high enough to not suffer from the"old back of trouser caught on RMWs pull tab at back or front problem"
    In most circumstances they look just like a captoe shoe. In winter I often wear the black ones with a suit or jacket and tie and when it is noticed that they are boot all that I get is a smile or inquiry.

    The tan ones I wear less as they are a bit too light coloured for me and not casual enough except for the occasional wear with Cords, or Chinos. I'm thinking of getting rid of them actually - they are half soled Topy, light wear over 2 years or so, well looked after 9UK size.

    Just saw this. Yeah, I torrented this plus Lincoln. Lincoln is soooooo boring. Django was also good but I felt it wasn't as good as Pulp Fiction or Kill Bill...

    Has a cracking but tiring weekend fly fishing up in the high country near Thredbo. With over 20km covered on foot, we encountered all sorts of wildlife including a tiger snake, hawks, rabbits, kangaroo's, wombats, plenty of fish and 2 wild deer crossing the river 50m upstream of us which was special to just stop and watch them. Thousands of casts were made and even a couple of fish were caught. My last trip for a while now with the baby due in 4 weeks.

    A view of the river from in the river. Level is low and gin clear.

    I'm thinking of going to see Life of Pi. Is it worth seeing in 3.14D?

    Yes, it's a must watch in 3D. Highly recommended unless you don't have stereopsis...
