South America and big race
There’s a mighty race on September 23 with the participants surrounded by glaciers, mountains and fantastic flora and fauna.  Get with the strength and prepare for the event by visiting   Catch me if you can !   At least, go get the details and be ready to take part in  one of the world’s best.

Leeton on the move
What  a surprise,  when I unscrewed the cap. Aromatic lychees and the taste of a wine which presented itself as a medium- dry white. Ingredients which, when poured after a hard day’s work, is about the most welcoming drink around.  The wine is from Lillypilly Estate.  Keep an eye out for the estate’s 2010 Tramillon.   When first presented  back in 1983, it took out Best NSW White Wine. Could also be a good decision, to include Leeton in your NSW travel plans.

Buy Dad a gift certificate
Then join him for a Seafood BBQ class in September or October and there’s a saving of $115. You could be cooking Thai style Squid Salad, BBQ prawns, Blue Mussels,  BBQ garfish, and salmon,- including the appropriate marinades, butters and mayonnaise.  Conditions apply, so to get the appropriate package, telephone Sydney Seafood School (02) 9004 1111.
