Federal Films - October 311

Federal Film Society review by Pip Morrissey

October dinner and short films

Our annual fundraising dinner and short films evening is coming up again on Saturday 10 October. 

We’ll be showing a mix of extraordinary short films accompanied by an Asian inspired three course meal which has been planned for us by Belinda Jeffery. It will be a night of fine dining and great company with plenty of time to socialise between our selection of wonderful short films.

Don’t miss out on this very popular event which we hold only once a year to raise funds to enable us to keep showing monthly films. 

Tickets are $35 per person for FFS members and $40 for non-members, and it’s BYO drinks.

While I think, and have declaimed here, that a single vineyard/single grape variety is a near-surety for a good wine, I am also continuously seduced by a combination of unusual/minor grape varieties. So I automatically bought, at a reasonable price, the 2013 Hunky Dory, a brand I hadn't seen before, Marlborough Pinot Gris, Gerwertztraminer and Riesling – suitably sub-labelled The Tangle – and made by the Allan family. The idea of tangle is picked up in the motif of the label: a silhouette of a sleeping fisherperson, in a boat on a blue sea background. The wine had a lovely taste in the mouth: a sweetness, savoury and musk: a savoury musk stick. The palate followed in a similar fashion to the perfume of this 'light-white' coloured wine.

Same Nasty Product - Different Salesman

The LNP, proving themselves to be self-serving and divided, in yet another act of outrageous hypocrisy did what they swore they would never do and deposed a first term Liberal Prime Minister; interestingly just 4 days shy of receiving his priministerial pay dirt pension. 

Malcolm ‘the blade’ Turnball and his posse of media assassins made quick work of one Anthony ‘we are not Labor’ Abbott. At 4pm on Monday the 14th of September 2015, it was on and by 10.30 the deed was done and Abbott was PM no more. While personally I never liked the man, I like this treacherous act even less. Abbott was more than the leader of the LNP, he was the peoples bad choice and the PM.

 

Bettongs Vs Cats & Dogs

Bettongs Vs Cats & Dogs

Thought I’d try another slant on responsible pet ownership. This comes after continuing complaints about cats & dogs roaming along Fox, Maso & Baldwin Rds in Rosebank. I target this area because over the past few months domestic dogs have been responsible for a calf death, bailing up people & livestock, continual raiding of neighbours garbage & compost bins and persistent barking. Cats have been seen roaming into neighbouring properties & chasing & eating defenceless wildlife. Our Lyrebirds & Pademelons are at risk from cat attack along with our Gliders, Frogs & nesting birds. Many of these species are threatened with extinction and while most of us appreciate how special it is to live amongst these critters, obviously some do not.
