Thanks for the Danish and British Christmas photos posted.
Denmark looks wet, and the UK looks cold.
I'm down in Tasmania, and though it's summer, it's too far south to have the extreme heat of the mainland.
(It was 44 degrees the other day, when we called into Gundagai looking for some lunch.)
After catching up with all the Christmas posts, I was at a loose end, and wondered if CP Mary's Tasmanian sisters have "made the news" here locally.
Well yes - Jane did in her local, Southern/Hobart, newspaper "The Mercury", back in late September.
Nice photo of Jane, and her "Boost Juice" business partner, as they support the anti-bullying drive that is a regular theme of our TV news and panels shows here in Oz - both school bullying and now work-place bullying.
(And this is one of CP Mary's Danish causes, of course.)
I'm on my tablet so can't link, but you can find it on Google under "Boost Juice joins battle against bullying| The Mercury".
My husband discovered "Boost Juice" a few years ago, and it is now a daily - yes daily - part of his working day. (He tells me they help his immune system when he's under work-stress.
I think he just likes them.)
In case you didn't realise, Jane's "Boost Juice" at Eastlands is on the other side of the Derwent River from where she lives in West Hobart, so she would have to travel across the Tasman Bridge between the two - if she goes there much.
(This bridge collapsed in the 1970s when a shipping vessel ran into one of the supporting pylons and cut the city in two. I was living there at the time, and it took a couple of years to be repaired as I remember - but this caused the eastern shore to grow and become independent of the main part of Hobart - and it hasn't looked back. Sydney had to lend Hobart some of it's ferries to help get people about - a big thing for everyone to have to deal with at the time.)
JessRulz's quote above is from 2007, so Jane's business must be going strong now after six years.
There's always a bun fight at the ones in Melbourne and Sydney I've been to - like controlled chaos, with machines whizzing and the counters crowded with customers
Well, Best Wishes All - and Happy New Year,
