This year with the election on, you might also run into Mark Latham, like Julia Gillard did. Just make sure you do not let him shake your hand. Ha HA!

Friday Favourite ~ EKKA
This week past has been the EKKA in Brisbane. What's that all you non Aussies ask? It's Queensland's Show, where the country comes to the city. It is short for Exhibition, but Queenslanders and Australian's in general love to shorten words so it has lovingly become known as "The Ekka". I love going along and seeing all the jams and baked goods, aswell as the art, fruit and not forgetting to mention the cattle. A lot of people complain here about the cost of entry and the fact that it is winter and the air is full of colds and flu but I really enjoy it. I love all the effort put in by the competitors who have taken the time to enter, be it for their jam or their goldfish or chook and also all the country folk who bring their stock to show.
