AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'My great-grandmother's favourite type of animal was pigs. She moved to Australia from Torquay, England, following her husband, a soldier settler, across the world after World War I. They bought a farm and worked the land, raising sheep, cows, chickens and, of course, pigs. At first, she raised pigs as livestock but couldn't bear to part with them. Instead, she kept them as pets. The pigs would follow her and suck on her legs, pressing their snouts to the silk of her stockings.'

    'Here’s a situation you might’ve found yourself in: you go out for dinner with a group of friends and, before ordering, decide the bill will be split equally. Were you alone, or paying only for what you yourself ate, you’d probably order the least expensive option available (within reason), but what you really want to order is about ten dollars more than the item you’d pick if you were solely responsible for footing the bill.' (Editorial)
