Day 11 of our European travel diary from last November. We do a walking tour of Monaco, around part of the Grand Prix circuit around the harbour, then up the rock to see the royal palace and cathedral and some great views, then end the day with a wonderful Italian meal.

If anyone following me is interested in Magic: The Gathering:

I found a factory sealed box of Future Sight boosters, which I originally bought for drafting, but which never got used. Looking at the current prices on eBay and finding they were 10 times what I paid for the box... I decided to sell it.

It's an auction, so if you're in the market for a box of Future Sight... you might pick up a bargain. :-)

Actual headline on ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) News website this morning:
'Sane and measured' Pence en route to Australia

Quoting the article:
A senior Australian official involved in this weekend's talks [with Pence] said Mr Pence is highly regarded and known to be calm and reasonable — providing a good counter-balance to the erratic twitter feed of Mr Trump.
"He is a sane, measured person, and lacks the flamboyance of Trump," the official said.

Day 10 of the Europe travel diary. We drive from Cuneo in Italy through a single-lane road tunnel through the Alps, into Mercantour National Park in France, explore the mountain village of Tende and its Bronze Age culture museum, then drive to Monaco and explore Monte Carlo, the casino, the waterfront, and fancy drinks!

Remember all those things that sensible people said Donald Trump surely couldn't do?

I'm voting today in the by-election for the New South Wales State seat of North Shore. It's the safest Liberal (NB: Liberal is the major conservative party) seat in the whole state. Check out the Liberal candidate skilfully handling a question from the media - watch the video in the linked news story.

Hey drivers, you know that thing where I'm a pedestrian and I have right of way crossing that street? If I look a little hesitant to step in front of your still-moving vehicle, that is not your cue to speed in front of me, barely missing me, and give me a "thank you" wave. It's because I'm on foot and you're in a two-ton metal box and I don't trust you.

Day 9 of my European holiday diary. We drive from La Spezia back towards the French Alps, ending up in the Piedmont town of Cuneo, the home of the famous Cuneesi al Rhum chocolates! We explore the streets of old town, checking the architecture and the cathedral, have a break in a cafe, take in the views over the valley towards the Alps, and find an absolute gem of a restaurant, where we have the best dinner of the entire trip, using local Piedmont seasonal produce - hazelnuts and chestnuts!
