15 July 2011- I went to the doctor with sore rib/lung and following a not good blood test result had to go to the ER for a CT scan to see if I had a blood clot. Just what I wanted on a Friday night. No clot and I have found out my blood pressure is close to normal (yay!). 2 years ago it was quite high, now it is just a shade higher than perfectly normal, so I fall into the ok group again.
9 July 2011- At the West End markets- there is a soccer field where people sit and drink coffee and relax. Several people have brought their dogs to the market, and the interactions can be fun to watch.
7 July 2011- We went to a wine launch night- 4 or 5 wines from a winery, including the latest release, matched with food. The last wine, served with the cheese, was a fabulous (in my opinion, Greg is not such a fan) sparkling shiraz. The owner of the restaurant has recently obtained a champagne saber, and sabred this bottle. The officers in Napoleons army used to open their champagne by slicing the cork off with a saber.
