Great indebtedness does not make men grateful, but vengeful; and if a little charity is not forgotten, it turns into a gnawing worm.


Somebody isn't paying attention. Expensive apartment block, Wapping. Hobart, October 2010.

I cannot speak for you, but my whole family and I find that time spent browsing the brochures one of life’s joys. Oh what joy can be had in casting witty and urbane bon mots about things that we will never want or need!

The casual ease with which the mountains of catalogues can be SNIP SNIP SNIPPED! away in dedicated training sessions with the scissors. Indeed, as a very small fellow (still in the rolling phase), Henry used to EAT the junk mail. If I remember it correct, the Harvey Norman furniture (vintage ’07) was his favourite.

Whatever the case, the complex above may well not accept junk mail, but it’s certainly getting it.

How could business survive without the abundance of junk mail generated. We must all accept junk mail for what it is. Educational literature.

I love junk mail. Especially on toast.

I enjoy browsing. To tight to buy anything, of course...

You at least know what is out there without having to leave the house. And if you do decide to buy then there is always the internet. Just order on line.
