Los Angeles Times Magazine was redesigned many moons ago with breathtaking results, particularly this cover featuring Mad Men's Christina Hendricks. Inside the design is crisp and clear. Newspaper magazines of this caliber put the dull offerings of the Australian press to shame – The Australian Financial Review Magazine a worthy exception.

Up a side street in Bowral there is a bakery cheaper than those on the main street, and with far friendlier staff. This little bakery makes quite good apricot danishes and croissants. As for the pies, not so successful. A rather weird chicken pie was purchased recently from the lovely young student who works there. The near dreadful creation featured chicken pieces suspended in a thick glutinous substance all encased in a thick and flavourless pastry. I think I'll stick with the croissants.
