A truncated message to Woolworths - their feedback form capped my characters!

Hi,

I have been shopping at the store for years and am concerned about some recent changes. In the last couple of weeks the store seems to be phasing out individual items in the fruit and vegetable section, such as carrots.

There is only a small display of individual carrots in the refrigerated section of fruit ‘n veg, with a 1KG bag being the minimum. At first I thought this was just an anomaly, and surely the carrots would be back soon, however carrots are no longer on the ‘popular items’ list on the self service checkout machines. I find it hard to believe that carrots aren’t popular enough to be listed next to potatoes, and onions.

If I bought a 1KG back of carrots all but two of them go off before I could finish them. I know it sounds funny, but I only buy what I need, and live within my means. I don’t want to waste 1KG of carrots for the sake of 2 individual carrots, that simply is not sustainable.

Today I purchased my meat for the week. I usually get 1KG of beef mince, and 500g of lamb mince. Often the lamb mince runs out, and I get some more beef. However today the smallest amount of beef mince (regular) I could purchase was 1.7+KG. Again, this is more than I need. There was a more expensive option of smaller portions of ‘organic premium beef mince’.

When the vendor’s salespeople try to take me out to lunch

This wasted so much of my time this week. Stupid vendors speaking with the bosses.

Nah, it’s ‘Soccer Players’ by Artists Bev Hogg and Elizabeth Patterson, at the newish suburban development, Parkwood Road, MacGregor.

Hey, I know that place :-)

Inari to Tromsø

Inari to Tromsø - Our drive across the top of Scandinavia

Our route from Inari to Tromsø via the coast.

We checked out of the hotel fairly with a big drive ahead of us. We headed north-west towards the border with Norway. There isn’t very much between Inari and Norway. Trees, some reindeer, more trees, mosquitoes, and rain. We managed to find a lot of rain and mosquitoes. Even though Norway is not a member of the EU, they are part the Schengen Area (lik…

Nah, it’s a bird flying past releasing water to the Molongolo River at Scrivener Dam.

Fantastic photo, where ever it is.
