2 August 2011- My new mouse from Japan- a nice cordless model called (seriously) "Like a Spoon". It is a nice mouse to use, and since it is wireless, it doesn't matter that I prefer to use it left handed (the cleaners used to switch my old one back to the other side of the computer).
30 July 2011- Brisbane now has two nice art musuems, with the State Library in between. The walk between is nice, with a cafe under the Library and trees and open spaces. We went to see an exhibition of an Australian artist couple from the impressionist era.

Received 28 July 2011, as part of the round robin. A postcard of St Petersburg, a city I would love to visit. I studied St Petersburg in college, when I was in Geneva. So the mention does bring back the faintly stressful air of being a mediocre french speaker in a post-graduate class (I can't beleive I was allowed to take it) all in French. I still remember the day the Professor informed me of the exam that I thought I wasn't going to take. Scary.

Another card received 28 July 2011 (it was the first day for about 10 days that we checked the mail). This was another round robin card from Germany (despite the card itself being a picture of Ecuador!)

This card received 28 July 2011, as part of a round robin. The artist is Monica Maas, I think I will be looking out for some of her other illustrations, I would have loved a cubby house like this as a kid.
