Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
Lunch by the bay with Bob and Blanche
Going by the Literary Lunches presented by The Grand View Hotel over the past few years, the management team of this establishment live by the proverb, " if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I've been very fortunate to be witness to several interesting presentations delivered by authors, both local and international, whilst at the same time enjoying a good meal, followed by dessert and coffee, in a totally relaxing environment.

And what can be more enjoyable than relaxing in a sea breeze off Moreton Bay with North Stradbroke Island as a backdrop ?

On Tuesday, 10th of December, Blanche D'Alpuget will be sharing insights into her latest book, Bob Hawke: The Complete Biography, which includes photographs never previously seen, as well as speeches from Hawke's memorial service.
