Here are three young Texan lasses called the Ross Sisters, who rose to fame by singing and dancing in the 1940s with a little acrobatics and contortionist action along the way.
Enjoy their simple song, ‘Solid potato salad’.
It makes your morning stretching routine look somewhat inadequate…
For those in love with our ol’ Melbourne town and interested in a little history lesson, then stop, sit down and take a look at this little treasure: Video footage taken of Melbourne life in 1910.
These were the days when men and boys wore caps, trilbies, bowlers and boaters. Also noticeable are their fobs holding the pocket watches. Ladies wore large ostrich feathered hats and their dresses were full length. Flinders Street Station was busy as usual and Abbotsford Ale was the main brew in those days.

The hills are alive…with music and wine.
There are some who consider these two elements to hold a romantic link with one another. I could be referring to Alois Lageder in Trentino-Alto Adige playing classical music to his fermenting wines, or Shadowfax’s Matt Harrop playing Triple R radio non-stop to his stainless steel tanks. In this particular case, I draw your attention to a Sicilian producer called Tasca d’Almerita who forwarded this promotional video to me.
However there is a twist.
Instead of the traditional concept of playing music to wine…this talented group use the wine to make the music.
Enjoy the Sound of Wine – sans Julie Andrews…
This movie was filmed by my mother Christine back in 1996.
To indicate the times, there is a moustache in this film worn by John. A.
This is what my brothers, sister and I grew up with in Werribee South.
The film was edited and ‘polished’ by the daughter Krystina (me) some fifteen years later in 2011.
If you can squander some time aside then I hope you enjoy it, because we have only embarrassed ourselves by publishing it.
Two Ladies of Wine...kinda like Two Fat Ladies??
My oh my there is another La Donna del Vino on the other side of the hemisphere! Check out this gorgeous Italian sommelier talking about Garganega (the white grape used to make Soave in the Veneto region).
Should I mention that it’s all in Italian??
It doesn’t matter. She sounds gorgeous, and oh happy days if you can understand her.
Not sure about the 1980’s music in the background though…
