The start of another week.

Mutterings continued.

Well, that was the weekend over. I had a production meeting last night and was given some last minute props - the director promises that this is the last of them. My Dick Whittington prop - large round cloth bundle on the end of a stick - proved successful. The innards of the bundle is........ a beachball! Nice and light and guaranteed not to knock the lovely Stephen Whiley off his feet when he's clobbered about the bonce with it.

Lalo Schifrin, composer of the Mission:Impossible theme and hundreds of others, was in Oz recently. I caught an item on his concert with the Sydney Symph. Orch. at the Opera House on the Sunday program yesterday. A very cool, full orchestral, plus jazz trumpeter James Morrison, version of the M:I theme.

Electioneering rubbish update: full colour glossy from the Liberal(ie Conservative) candidate, complete with endorsement from the Independent (ie Conservative) retiring member.

More reasons why 'nanas are good for you: "Bananas contain vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Many of these nutrients help regulate heartbeat. Bananas also are high in polyphenols -- antioxidants that neutralize disease-causing free radicals. Slightly unripe bananas probably contain the most polyphenols, which produce a slightly bitter taste in the fruit. In addition to eating bananas, another way to protect your kidneys is to avoid smoking. Approximately 31,000 new cases of kidney cancer are diagnosed each year in the U.S. and 12,000 people die annually from the disease. Signs of kidney cancer include blood in the urine, unintentional weight loss, back pain, and abdominal pain. If you have any of these symptoms, see your healthcare practitioner." So there.
