PONTE: "His eyes beheld stars, one twixt Jupiter and Mars…" lyricked PL Inkletter, "chuffing the Goddess of grain, and living edifyingly in the main."

Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'

Wednesday: Cold and dry again!

I scrubbed the glass surfaces in the oven, then set off the pyro function, leaving it superheating in Missus Inkletter's care, while I set off for Bob's at Guildford, doing three things on the way, including buying some chook wheat for, of all things, microwaveable heat packs that the nifty needlewitch makes for our aches and pains, and in lieu of hot water bottles. That purchase was at City Barn in Malaga, where I patted and caressed Mama Puss, a six year old ex-stray that lives on-premises. She was mighty plump, and gorgeous (I'm considering adopting the name for my wife).

Bob wanted a walk, so we did the million mile Woodbridge to Viveash riverside stroll again, and my knees were letting me know they were no impressed by the end of it. I'll take days to recover. Then we descended upon Swan Aquatic where Bob got an hour and a half in the water.

I wasn't home till 8. But I had managed to completely read 6S (The 6s Review) – Issue 1 in the short time at the pool. It arrived a couple of days back, and is entirely stories of six sentences, which are as different as you could imagine.

Lateline: The (Tony) SilverToes aka Tojo (Jones) Assay: An upmarket attired Tony Jones interviewed a downmarket attired Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the first Lateline interview of the new PM, although she spent many a minute at the receiving end of questions as Deputy PM.
Mr Jones, when he decides to don a white shirt, certainly makes them look better than they do on most any man, as he did tonight. I wish PM Gillard had worn a jacket over a blouse or camisole, for she would have looked much more Prime Ministerial. Instead she wore a dark khaki collared blouse with a deep vee, her collar very skew-whiff, twisted high on her left shoulder, low on her right, and appearing for all the world like she'd just got out of bed and still in her jammies ; what do you think?:

Mr Jones tried to give PM Gillard a hard time over the proposed regional asylum processing centre possibly in East Timor, and they significantly overtalked each other a couple of times. Now is it a male to female thing, or what? But this pseudo savaging by Mr Jones pales into insignificance compared to what Kezza the Great of The 7.30 Report has given to former PM John Howard, former Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull, and such. Would Mr O'Brien savage PM Gillard equally? I suspect not.

Anyway, savaging is not necessarily justified or good. Mr Jones kept it fairly civilised, and you've got to hand it to Ms Gillard, she is a sharp operator. She resolutely avoided responding to the yes or no ultimatum Mr Jones tried, and in general I neither blame journos for trying, nor pollies for resisting that level of jackhammering answers out. But wouldn't it be wonderful if they didn't have to resort to such methods!

Last week I laid in the boots to Angus Houston, our once Scottish Chief of the Defence Force, in my review of his interview with Ticky Fullerton. I have felt a bit bad about it ever since, mulling over it much, but I returned nevertheless to edit in some more slightly stinging criticism just tonight!
