Interesting Anime

While shopping for some Bakugan figures for a birthday present I took these photos in an interesting little shop near my home, called Anime at Abbotsford

A little band of Dora's . . .

This is Ryomou Shimei :-) from the anime 'Battle of the Vixens' by Ikki Tousen

And with the final word is Toad from Super Mario

Essendon v Collingwood ANZAC Day clash

The 15th ANZAC Day clash between the two AFL arch rivals Essendon and Collingwood. The score is 7-6 Collingwood's way, with the other match a draw in 1995. The Bombers have bitch slapped the Magpies with a 6-4 record in their past 10 meetings. Both teams are 2-2 for the season, and both are sending mixed messages about form. Lets see if Essendons blistering midfield runs make the difference today. Saturday, 2.20pm at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Essendon 1.5 6.6 9.13 13.15 (93)
Collingwood 4.2 6.6 8.10 12.16 (88)
Official crowd: 84,829 at the MCG
*** ba-ha-ha !! ***

Hermione was born on a farm near Warwick Qld on March the 22nd 2006. Brindle in colour her was chosen by my owner and best friend Eladio. Originally he wanted ‘Harry’ but after consultation this was changed to Hermione. Hermione, in Greek mythology, is the only daughter of Helen of Troy and Menelaus. When Helen ran off with Paris, Hermione was abandoned to the care of Clytemnestra. She later married Neoptolemus, the son of Achilles. But I digress . . . Hermione the staffy spent her first year or so on Mount Tamboring Qld before moving to Sydney. She loves walking and meeting other dogs. We walk about 30-40 Km per week, every evening and if she's lucky a couple of times a day on weekends and any holidays. She did have a Facebook page but they deleted her site when they found out she was a dog and not a person over 12 years old :-(
