Happy New Year

As Sydney celebrated the coming of a new year with a bang, may we remember those in need, yet remain hopeful for a bigger and brighter year ahead for us all.

May your year, dear reader, be filled with culinary capers, epicurean feasts and many a gastronomic adventure!

Happy 2005 everyone!

Sydney New Years Eve fireworks 2004.
The fireworks were preceded by one minute's silence as a mark of respect for the tsunami victims. 3,000kg of explosives were used in the twenty-minute display.

Keen eyes will spot the giant art sculpture disco ball, the controversial theme for the Harbour Bridge this year, apparently symbolising reflection.

    Hi Julia - Thanks and welcome to the site. Thanks also for the link to my site from your homepage! Your site is great. Are you finding typepad more flexible than blogger?

    Hi Pinkcocoa - Happy New Year to you. We couldn't see the disco ball very well from where we were. Apparently too there wasn't enough wind to get the individual fans started. Looking forward to more pink chocolatey delights in '05!

    Hi fishfish - Thanks and Happy New Year to you too! Thanks the compliments re: the fireworks photos. I got the tripod out and battled the crowds. Unfortunately there were a lot of trees in the way! Looks like you had a blast in Nagano. So much snow and wow, can't believe you saw monkeys too.

    hi AugustusGloop,

    I used to host my site at Blogger too, but found that TypePad is more user-friendly for an HTML dummy like me. It just got to a point where I was spending more time figuring out the technicalities than blogging, so I decided, "What the heck! Just fork out some money and make my life easier." :) Thanks too for the link to my site!

    Hi Julia - Yes I noticed you made the switch from blogger to typepad. Like you, I was a real HTML-phobe but I have to say I am gradually improving. Now that my site is set up, I'm loathe to even consider swapping sites. I can imagine how much work it was to bring across all your archived info.
