I have had a further report from Cate who has said that she had forgotten how nice it was to have a Sunday paper to read and can we please have the New York Times.
I told her that this was not possible but that she could have the London Sunday Times - but not until Monday at the earliest and probably not until Tuesday – and it would probably cost about €30 if she wanted the full edition – and as it was published by Rupert Murdoch she would need to read it wearing rubber gloves.
I do however make a single exception for Rupert and in fact subscribe to the iPad edition of The Times and the Sunday Times – at a cost of €13 per month – because I think it is good value and because I have no interest in British politics so don’t care how biased it is – if in fact it is – because I take no notice.
But I would never go anywhere near any of his US publications for obvious reasons.
I told Cate she could read The Times on my iPad but she said it is not the same which of course it isn’t and if you ask me the one thing I really miss about Australia it is reading the Sydney Morning Herald with my tea and toast in the mornings.
But you will have noticed that there is not much interest in blogging here in Vienna at the moment as Melissa and I are frying other fish.
However I have provided you with a picture of a Duck taken in Stadtpark today. Also a picture of what is probably a Heron which is actually eating my fish in Stadtpark as I am taking its picture!
