....and we are going to my good friend and colleague's 4oth birthday celebration on the rooftop of the Glenmore Hotel. It's an historic hotel in The Rocks - we'll be under those white umbrellas enjoying a misty view of the harbour. (It's raining - and noone is complaining about that).
The Rocks were the subject of a lot of controversy in the 1960's as developers wanted to raze the area. A building unionist, Jack Munday, placed "green bans" on the area, and ultimately saved it - and I for one am very glad he did.
