She's back !




How pleasing to see our favorite chanteuse and actress Maria Venuti made it to the Bong Bong Picnic Races this week. Maria suffered a stroke earlier this year after she found a stranger in her living room. But she's looking much better and as always, larger than life. Maria is pictured here with two Southern Highlands' residents broadcaster Alan Jones and the always stylish Glen Marie Frost.

There was a time when the Picnic Races had to be cancelled for a number of years due to the attendees imbibing just a little too much in alcoholic refreshments and basically running amok. Now they have returned to calmer times and really are a wonderful day out in a superb location.

Noticeable attendees: broadcaster Alan Jones who tends to be to the right of politics but his new friendship with the former Australian Labor Party candidate for Prime Minister Mark Latham has taken on all the attributes of a bromance. Latham seems to have veered to the right at a rapid pace and now writes for the right-wing website Rebel Media and when he's not castigating "snowflakes" he's cosying up to that Milo character or getting stuck into former Labor colleagues like ex-PM Kevin Rudd and former NSW premier Kristina Keneally who has a real chance of picking up the Bennelong seat in the upcoming by-election which could put Labor in power and PM Malcolm Turnbull out.
We digress: Latham and Jones have teamed up to give the world just what it needs- another cookbook as Mark tweeted with the accompanying photo : "Here we are in the kitchen enjoying the great story about Alan's sultana scone recipe. One of many cracking recipes to feature in the book.'
We can't wait.

BASIL IS BACK - LIVE !

Michael Coppel and Philip McIntyre in association with Louise
Withers present the World Premiere Tour of John Cleese’s official adaptation of Fawlty Towers Live on Stage – touring Australia and New Zealand from August 2016.

Fawlty Towers Live will be based on the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. It will be adapted for the stage by John Cleese, with direction by Caroline J. Ranger and set design by Liz Ascroft.
Manic, snobbish, condescending, sycophantic and rude, Basil Fawlty is without doubt one of the funniest, most iconic and most memorable British comedy characters ever written. This original adaptation and all-new Australian cast, will bring all your beloved characters to life onstage in an unmissable evening of hilarity!

Sydney: Roslyn Packer Theatre FROM 19 AUGUST
******************************************************************************

NOTICE : Careless Whispers will be back onboard tomorrow after a bout of illness. Even the office cat Mildred who can adequately fill our shoes couldn't be available due to a de-sexing operation.

All yours for Fifty Bucks !

This is the beautiful island of Kosrae which is part of Micronesia. It's about 5000 kms from Sydney and when you think "tropical paradise" it just doesn't get much better than this. Beautiful beaches. friendly locals and constant sunny gorgeous weather.
And for $49 you can buy a ticket in a lottery to win the lovely little Nautilus Resort pictured below which is a "16-room complex emphasizes comfort, convenience and consideration. Striking tropical gardens surround the restaurant and bar, with an inviting swimming pool nearby for leisurely dipping".
The Australian family who built this resort in 1992 want to return to Oz. Whispers got a ticket but you have to hurry as there are just 11 days left.
