Marmite rules

Brits reading my blog will identify well with "Marmite" - and know that is either one of those foodstuffs that you love or hate.  I love it.  On toast.  Australians will know a similar product called Vegemite.  I can only describe it a sticky brown, extremely salty yeast by-product, which in fact, does make it sound absolutely disgusting.

Jabblog's blog had me laughing out loud this week with a spoof "animal welfare" style video about neglected jars of Marmite across the UK. 

Me?  I take my Marmite everywhere - even on vacation with me.
Beautiful mountain views and beautiful Marmite.  Ahhhhh.

More "proper" holiday photos to follow soon....

Lovely mail

Look what finally arrived in the post this week...
I was so very excited to receive it.

And I'll be even more excited to use it at the border crossing next week when we head down to Coeur D'Alene in Idaho. Woo hoo to this new Canadian citizen with her flashy new document and photo ID.

It's such a shame that, rather like my driving licence, I look like I've just been released after serving ten years!
