Winter change over in Australia

As we enter the winter changeover period between shorn lambs and spring lambs, prices remain stable in Australia. With a number of meat plants still on long term closure, others are closed for winter maintenance or on reduced production for maintenance and upgrades. Accordingly, supply is further down and supporting prices.

Zero maintenance and a long-life

Going through Heathrow airport on Sunday I paid the quite large sum of £8 (US$12), before tips, to have my ancient Classic Rockport Dressport wingtips polished. They are about fifteen years old now and I have quite a few pairs I rotate, so I have paid more for each for routine maintenance that I did at purchase. It gives me a good feeling to still be proud of them, and knowing when Rockport designed my shoes they were certainly not after any planned obsolescence.
