Life is beautiful

As a school parent, I have to say that things have gotten increasingly more sophisticated over the years than just the average sausage sizzle to raise funds.  There is a food truck festival, mini market and moonlight cinema event being held tomorrow night at St Helena Secondary College in Eltham.  If it’s balmy as tonight, it will be a good one to go to.

I was teasing one of my male work colleagues today about being a wing man for a friend at a singles event held last night at the Queen Victoria Melbourne Summer Night Market – apparently you wear red if you are on the look out for a potential partner.  Things have changed since my dating days…

Monsieur Mayonnaise is about to screen at Cinema Nova and if you are an art lover, history or movie buff, you may be interested in this documentary about the late Georges Mora, (husband of Mirka Mora, art patron and owner of bohemian Cafe Mirka, Cafe Balzac and Tolarno Restaurant and Galleries) and his lesser known role in the French Resistance.  There is a special In Conversation event on Thursday 23 February at 6.45pm where Georges’ son and gallerist William Mora joins Heide Museum of Art curator Kendrah Morgan after the movie.  My favourite art house movie set in war-time is still Robert Benini’s Life is Beautiful.
