ONE DOWN TWO TO GO
Ex-faneditor James Styles and wife Aline have a daughter Tess Eleanor Sissa
Styles (born 20/5/94). Is she destined to become an acronymphomaniac?
OENOPHILES DOWN FULLBODIED RED
Having just refurbished their cellars at Osicka's winery near Heathcote on
the 29th of May, Perry Middlemiss and Julian Warner struck a kangaroo.
Perry & Julian were unharmed. The car lost a radiator and much of its front
end. The kangaroo was killed. Perry didn't report on the state of the wine.
(Perry reports that it was an Eastern Grey Kangaroo but why let the facts
destroy a good headline) Don Ashby was less fortunate recently, falling
through a roof and landing on a car rather than a concrete floor. He was
injured badly enough to be hospitalized.
