    Mahler 2 did live up to expectations, interesting interpretation of it. Ashkenazy is a very animated conductor I feel exhausted at the end just watching him. Good to hear Michelle DeYoung live, she preforms on the Boulez Mahler 2. And it does bring to a close the two year Mahler cycle.

    Thanks, MickyD.

    On another note, does anyone know a good dry cleaner in Melbourne cbd that can dry clean a 3 roll 2 button blazer without pressing down the lapels to make it a 3 button blazer?

    Don't know if this would be of any interest and it's certainly a way off but I could look in to doing a limited edition SF members (or Aussie members) tie for my second season, of which I will get around July/august nex year.

    It could be a silk or knit and have some kind of custom embroidery say hidden on the tipping that members could recognise. If it was a standard fabric offered from the weaver the min would only be 20-24 to do or if it was a custom design or a knit, min would be 40 units so I'd need a bit of interest but certainly would be happy to look in to it.

    What about his raving about the internet shopping explosion? The punters are waking up to all the defective overpriced crap he sells. I got a computer from him once that malfunctioned later and I found that it was second hand/returned merchandise where a wire tie from a garbage bag had been used to fix something! Go figure!

    Looking for Hendricks cucumber flavoured gin in Melbourne. None of my usually grog shops have it, which I guess means it won't be on discount.

    Anyone know a supplier?

    Or will I have to be Waiting On The Man somewhere near Footscray Station?

    Or more dangerously Ringwood station.

    err, hendricks gin is fairly common. is there an actual cucumber flavoured variant. i thought you were just meant ot serve it with a slice of cucumber instead of lime for a G&T.

    I found it at Dan Murphy's. The Internet things has this marvelous search feature, amazing, what will theybthinkmof next.

    I think the cucumber is the only version of Hendricks , it's yummy. Not cheap, makes the best martini, or drink it straight with a slice of cucumber.

    Don't think there is a cucumber variant.

    Any Dan Murphy's in Melbourne will stock it I'm sure.

    I've purchased it from McCoppins (fitzroy one in particular) bottle shops if you're on the north side. I'm not sure but there is a decent bottlo on queen street near the corner of bourke. I've never looked for Hendricks as such but they do have a good range of spirits.

    The cucumber flavoured one is the only option. It's added along with the juniper berries.

    One of my favourite drinks for summer and it's efinitely getting close to that time of year, I'll have to pick up another bottle.

    Hendrick's Gin is a brand of gin produced by William Grant & Sons in Girvan, Scotland. In addition to the traditional juniper infusion, Hendrick's uses Bulgarian rose and cucumber to add flavor. Hendrick's gin is bottled in a dark brown apothecary-style bottle.
