The pub with no beer.

I noticed this interesting shop name in Nuova Lazio. In English it would be Beautiful Beauty and in Italian it would be Bella Bellezza. "Unusual combination of languages and words." I thought.

Bella Beauty with car.
I'd stopped to get a coffee from our local coffee shop. It has strange opening hours and, when one feels like partaking in a little cafine, it's often found to be closed. I've stopped for a coffee three times.
Here are the results:
  • The lady apologised and said that they were out of coffee.
  • I got a coffee.
  • The lady said that they were having maintenance carried out on the coffee machine.
Okay, Monty Python's Cheese Shop skit probably pops to mind pretty fast, but I actually thought of this song...

It's obviously a front for a drug dealing operation.

Was there a pair of runner shoes hanging from the power lines outside?

Actually I think it's just a badly run business.

With the lack of frequency of your posting maybe you should amalgamate with them.

Dad used to have a couple of Slim Dusty records and so that brings back a good memory.
I was at a BBQ (barbie) wine event at Banrock Station alongside the Murray River at Kingston South Australia in the early 2000s.
Slim was performing there to a hundred or so of us guests (the importers and distributors around the world.) It was a great day.

It's obviously being run by the ex-Principal Of Nuova Lazio High School, and he's making as good a job of it as he did at the school.
Isn't retirement great?

TSB! Welcome back!
