Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Pretty pooch, Lovehistory! I'm guessing with CW, only I thought is was a Bernese Mountain dog. (I think it originated in Bern, Switzerland.)

Thank you. Yes she is a Bernese Mountain Dog. And, MLE is correct they originated in the Canton of Berne in Switzerland. First time I've bought a dog from someone other than my parents. Have to work out the shipping details. Imagine, I'll have a dog that has flown more than I have!

Very much looking forward to her, and thinking up a few dozen names. At least once an hour my husband and I come up to one another with new name ideas.

The best thing yesterday...the whole day! I spent all day yesterday at an event called Sound Relief which was a musical extravaganza staged to raise funds for the bushfire victims here.

Among the highlights were performances by Kings of Leon, Jet, Jack Johnson, Hunters and Collectors, Midnight Oil and Kylie Minogue led an unaccompanied version of "I still call Australia home" which was awesome.

The only bad thing was the weather. Just as I would start to get dry, it would start raining again, but its hard to complain when we need the rain so badly! I was basically wet or damp for 14 hours but I had the best time!

I was thinking of you there all day! When Kylie came on I thought of your young man and hoped he could see!

Glad you had a good time, eventhough you got wet!

He had completely given up by this time. He ended up coming home early but I was able to stay to the end.
