The Obama Blend from Compos Coffee

Compos Coffee, Sydney finest coffee house and roaster, is now offering "The Obama Blend." Their description of the new coffee is great (and, for Australia, surprisingly free of odd racial undertones):
Great depth of character, strong, and eloquent. This very appealing blend unites coffees from Africa and the Americas to produce a cup which has gotten us excited. Formidable middle palate flavors, syrupy with an uplifting finish.
Excellent drink for going forward.
I bought some the other day but haven't yet brewed it. Will report back later.

3 Sick Little Ones

We spent the last 4 days in and out of emergency rooms and doctors' offices trying to find out why both the kids and dad were so sick. There was plenty of chunder'in and brown chowder to go around, believe me, but it's all over now and were back to our normal routine.

Miyako still very sick. That's the food before it goes in. We didn't get a photo of it coming out a few minutes later.

On the mend.

Much better now; using mom's home-made Playdough™.

Celebrating grandpa's birthday.

Picnic at the Olympic Park

We went to the Sydney Olympic Park and had a picnic on Saturday. It was such a beautiful day. The kids had a great time playing with the sand.

Kent got all wet and sandy after playing in the sand.

After we got home, Kent had a bath and got all nice and clean.
