- Climbing at the Speed of Soul article on Dean Potter | Outside Online
Dean Potter punches a button on a plastic wristwatch looped around his climbing harness. His partner, Tim O'Neill, leaps at the rock before him, jamming freshly taped fingers into a slender crack. Above them soars the great granite parabola of the most famous big-wall route in Yosemite Valley—or, for that matter, the world: The Nose of El Capitan. At just under 3,000 vertical feet, with 36 pitches, The Nose requires three harrowing pendulum swings and the negotiation of a hair-raising crux section known as the Great Roof—an overhanging shelf 2,000 feet off the deck, with a crack at the back so narrow that neither the towering Potter nor the diminutive O'Neill can wedge his fingers into it.

Note: A fascinating profile of one of the world's greatest speed climbers Dean Potter. Interesting to read about his spiritual aspirations, Dan Osman, frost, and another guy I forget the name of. An article about Osman is: http://outside.away.com/magazine/0499/9904terminal.html

- Tom Phat Restaurant - Brunswick - FoodGod Restaurant Review
Tom Phat offers modern (westernised) asian food with panache. Brekky consists of a range of bread or egg based offerings all with innovative departures from the usual. Vietnamese fried eggs offers up 2 eggs on crusty fresh with baguette (the french influence in vietnam) the point of difference from every other cafe being the dash of sesame oil the eggs were cooked with and the splash of chili and fish sauce to finish ($7.50). Likewise the omelette comes with crispy roti, chives and bacon and a laotian salsa (tomato and tasty++) for $9, while the scrambled eggs are set apart by the inclusion of chinese sausage (lap cheung-a sweet pork meat) and tomato ($8).

- 1001 Songs: The Great Songs of All Time and the Artists, Stories and Secrets Behind Them: Books: Toby Creswell - Amazon.com
The fascinating stories behind more than a thousand best-loved songs from the last 50 years are explored in this entertaining collection. Intriguing background and biographical information on each song and its artist — from Elvis and Fatboy Slim to Leonard Cohen and Pulp — is included alongside more than 400 rare, full-color photographs of the musicians. Keeping in line with the way that iPods and other portable mp3 players have changed the way people listen to music — with personalized playlists and mixes just a few clicks away — this collection places more emphasis on specific songs than entire albums. The eclectic mix of profiled songs are randomly ordered.

- Hot for chocolate - Epicure - www.theage.com.au
A sobering and interesting look at the single-origin world of chocolate.
Chocoholics are starting to sound like wine judges, and Helen Greenwood wants to taste the excitement. Fanciers of single-origin chocolate take the wine analogy further. Like grapes, they argue, cacao beans reflect the characteristics of the soil in which the cacao trees grow and this lends the final product its individual flavour. It's basically the same as the famous wine concept of terroir.

- Irrewarra Sourdough Website
At Irrewarra Sourdough we make bread with real flavour and texture using traditional bread-making techniques. Our breads are 100% authentic sourdough. That means they are made using as a leaven, a culture of wild yeasts and bacteria which naturally occur in the air and flour. Our culture was created by allowing these natural yeasts and bacteria to multiply in a mixture of flour and water which is then used each time we bake. This method is the original bread-making process used before baker’s yeast was developed.

- Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey--The Sweet Liquid Gold that Seduced the World: Holley Bishop - Books: Amazon.com
Holley Bishop loves bees. No, more than that: she idolizes them. She marvels at their native abilities and the momentous role these misunderstood and unjustly feared creatures have played in the development of human history. And with her book, Robbing the Bees, she succeeds in making the reader love bees, too. Take this nifty bit of information, one of countless fascinating factoids offered by Bishop in her celebration of all things bee-related: "Because of bees' starring role in the drama of pollination, we humans are indebted to them, directly and indirectly, for a third of our food supply. Visiting bees are required for the commercial production of more than a hundred of our most important crops including alfalfa, garlic, apples, broccoli, Brussels sprou

Note: Read the reviews, points of note are:
