An ideal ‘stacked’ image for this week.

Big Square bales of hay stacked for ease of loading onto trucks.

Google tells me that middle sized

big ‘squares’ weigh around 500 kg compared to

small square bales which weigh around 20-25 kg each.


Stacked (or stuck) macaroons.

This stacked of macaroons looked yummy.

Finally, a Melbourne stack of macaroons.

Coffee and a macaroon at Mcdonalds

is the only place I know of in the Geelong area

to enjoy one of these

waist expanding culinary delights.

Book Review-Burying-Water

Burying Water

(Burying Water #1 of 4)


K. A. Tucker


Put a very attractive girl, a troubled youth, and the Russian mob together and what do you have?  Answer….Burying Water.

Burying Water, the first book in a series of the same name, is a well-paced romance which combines all three elements to form another enjoyable read from K. A. Tucker.

One rainy night Jesse plays Good Samaritan and stops to see if a fellow driver needs assistance.  HER car has a flat tire.  Jesse changes the tire and receives a big kiss for his effort.


Shortly thereafter a customer asks if he would fix an aging classic car.  Jesse jumps at the chance only to discover that the customer, a Russian mobster, is married to the mystery lady.  From there the plot thickens.

Burying Water is written in ‘then’ and ‘now’ chapters.  When I first came upon this style of writing I wasn’t sure that I liked it.  However, in this instance it provides an excellent link in time and a means of unravelling the past and how it links to the present day story line.  To go into any more detail would spoil the plot.

The only other thing I will add is that I often opt for crime books….good guys and bad guys.  Burying Water does include this element, however, while the criminal aspects of the plot are central to the story it is mainly limited to violence and inferred criminal activities.

I have rated Burying Water as a solid four star read.
