OK, so that was a tricky one. Perhaps if I’d posted a slightly different angle? Like this…
…you may have guessed that it’s a concertina! In fact, an old concertina, in New York’s Metropolitan Museum.
Keep reading…I might give you a new teaser, with a clue.
‘way south of here, the ski resorts are expecting lots of snow bunnies.

I’m not a skier. Used to be pretty good at apres-ski when I was younger. 😉 But right now I’d get more use from a wet suit and snorkel. Man! It rained last night! On such nights I really miss my old fireplace.
The vegetable curry I cooked certainly hit the spot. And, since I’ve mentioned food…Marie, whose cat was the reason for my New York visit, has posted this link http://harlanturk.com/2011/06/10/edible-brooklyn-22-summer-2011/ over at her blog. The “Edible” magazines are worth reading if you live in NYC. In fact, there is a lot of good reading even if you’re not Stateside.
Still on food…Australia has come a long way in food appreciation in recent years. Well, in the Big Cities, at least. But out in the sticks? Not so much! Yes, it is possible to buy real coffee in more smaller towns than it was a few years ago. This is a Good Thing. But I’m afraid we’re still victims of the over-processed-stuffed-in-plastic bread.
A local bakery(yes, part of a national chain and therefore baking what the Head Office bean counters deem profitable) had fresh-baked Turkish bread last year. Only at weekends, but perfect for Sunday brunches. What happened to that treat? “Oh! Nobody wanted to buy it so we don’t do that any more!”
Mr and Mrs Average Australian still want their ghastly sliced white. (Which, by the way, sticks to dentures. Not an attractive look, all you people who like ” a cuppa tea and a sanger” at the shops.)
The rain has eased so I’m off to feed the neighbour’s dog. But I’ll leave you with one more foody picture. If you’re a vegetarian you might want to go now!
Another lovely link before I leave you…this woman is one of the most entertaining writers on things scientific.
