THE ICEBERG LETTERS
Taking on the tuckshop
IT'S not just food handling responsibilities that the tuckshop women and men of Australia take on every school day.
Cracking the Easter Bunny
THE Easter Bunny's stronghold on Easter egg distribution contains the whiff of a clever operator.
Add a pinch of reality
CELEBRITY chefs might hog the spotlight, but the true heroes of the kitchen are much closer to home.
Some neighbourly advice
HERE'S hoping the new neighbours are a sweet addition to the street's melting pot.
Cracking the diet whip
A DIET is a tough gig, and with Easter approaching, an especially cruel one.
Waking up, switching off
MORNING FM radio presenters might provide a bit of background noise, but then again, so do dishwashers and mowers.
Tackling another season
WITH the rugby league season about to kick-off, one wonders what cliched gems the year will deliver.
True heroes of the pool
ALL that chlorine, all those pruney fingers, all those hours spent having water splashed in your face - they are all worth it.
In praise of the unsung shoehorn
IN today’s disposable society where new shoes are purchased rather than having them repaired, footwear care is on the wane.
Hail the ugly battler
DEAR catfish, it will be fully understandable if you don’t understand this letter.
The sweetest surprise
YOU, surprise chocolate, remain one of life’s treats: the road trip glove-box find; the appearance on my desk from some kind-hearted work colleague; the Easter basket.
On board the freedom train
DEAR freedom, thanks to you we’ve still got protestors and placards and letters to the editor and think-tanks. And ice cream.
A wandering watery wonder
THE front yard is looking a picture, and I feel it is only fair I pay tribute to travelling sprinklers.
An achy breaky riff
DEAR country music, it's been coming for a while but it took one of your treasured stars to finally have a gutful and point out a few truths.
Missing: cricket's larrikins
YES, well done - you’ve reclaimed the Ashes and for that you should be very proud.
Claus for consideration
MY two front teeth are in position and accounted for - so my request this year is not for major dental work, but for Santa to visit his doctor.
Lost in hardware heaven
THE big green box of delights is an absorber of many a male's time.
School's out, for now
LOOK, out there, beyond that mobile phone screen and pillow cover - that’s the future out there, and it’s all yours.
Selling the magic
DEAR real estate agent - your number plates indicate you are into personalising things. I can only assume this will apply to your service as well.
A photo finish
HE’S five months old. Or is it six months old? I’m not sure. What I do know is that is the answer to the question you are about to ask me as I see you heading my direction.

China has followed through with flagged plans to resume importing United States beef, lifting a ban that has existed since mad cow disease was found in the States in 2003.
Indonesia has relaxed its trade restrictions on secondary beef cuts, re-opening a market that was worth $42 million to Australian exporters two years ago.
The recent rainfall will lead to a change in the micron profile of the Australian wool clip next spring, while boosting production volume and lamb marking rates.
While the favourable season is spurring lamb prices and providing more marketing options for producers, livestock agents are concerned rates are reaching unsustainable levels.
There will be more cases of sclerotinia in canola in areas that do not traditionally have problems with the disease due to the wet spring.
