Melbourne General Cemetery Winter 2010

It was a typical cold Melbourne winter afternoon, I didn't have much to do so I took the kids to the Melbourne General Cemetery. They were bored but it didn't hurt them to have a look. I have a few relatives buried there but I don't know where.












The last resting place of some early Christian Brothers



I wonder if this is the Peter Lalor from the Eureka Stockade?




I know many children died, but this is so sad.

A little piece of History

Andy Griffith Show - A Bit of Bluegrass Music

I always loved the start of the Andy Griffith Show. It was so simple and sweet. I came across this clip, it's good, sweet and poignant.



And they were still great many years later.



Notice how Maggie holds her left hand in the later clip, it's the same as she held it all those years before.
