We're off to Townsville, northern Queensland, for the upcoming long weekend. It's the Melbourne Cup here in Victoria, which is THE horse race of the year, on Tuesday. So we are heading off to meet up with a European travel friend of Tom's who is in Townsville. A bit of R and R. It'll be hot and humid, that much we know. Enjoy the visit of the Great Pumpkin, and I hope it doesn't snow (in Winnipeg) for the big night! Hallowe'en isn't a big deal here, although you see lots of merchandise in the stores, as the bigger retail outlets are trying to cash in on this all "American" event. We'll cash in after the stuff that didn't sell goes on sale!

Everyone, behave yourselves....
