Our World Tuesday - The Age - Melbourne

The Age is the broadsheet newspaper for Melbourne - I read it every day!

The weekends events were a bit of a wash out for me and I was struggling to find a recent image for today. Then I looked at the online version of the paper. Remember, I'm in Australia (ie the summer) and its almost Christmas!

So I have outlined the headlines for you - we have floods, a man was bitten on the foot by a snake he found under his own front door mat and we have a plague of spiders!

Welcome to Marvelous Melbourne!

You can find more places from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

You can find the most recent post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the pictures.


  1. What a fun and different post for the day, Stewart! I love it! Hope you have a great week as we countdown to the holidays!


  2. and a merry ho, ho, ho to you, too! ha!

  3. I'm very happy that I live in Norway - even if we won't have any snow for Christmas;)

  4. Gosh that doesn't sound too bad!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  5. Ho ho ho (it could be worse though --- well, except maybe for that snake under the door mat. That's awful!) But you know, when you read the papers pretty much anywhere over here you'd never really want to get out of bed. But we always do read it, no matter where we are (last of a dying breed, daily newspaper readers are).

  6. Wonderful post!

  7. If I had to choose, I'd prefer the snake to the spiders, and hope it wouldn't bite me. I don't like spiders, they give me the creeps and I'm allergic to spider bites, but I don't mind holding snakes, I once held a big one at the local zoo whilst the keeper was cleaning out it's vivarium (which also contained two small green snakes that have lethal bites), he couldn't keep an eye on the movements of all three and I was the only other person available in the snake house at the time.
