Memories of Mellah and Chocolate Mousse

Over at Miscellaneous Mum, Karen is indulging herself with Chocolate Mousse.  For me, chocolate mousse always brings back memories from my long ago childhood in the 1950s of what may be one of Australia's first 'instant' desserts, Mellah.  You can pop down to the comments of Karen's post to see my comment.

I went searching the net for Mellah and there is barely a mention - but I did find this...

Jenny Dowell goes to Just Grounds, Lismore ... and then there's the mural

On Twitter, one of the people I follow is Jenny Dowell who is the Mayor of Lismore in northern New South Wales which is a very beautiful part of the world.  This morning Jenny has been out and about purchasing fruit at the local market and drinking Fair Trade coffee.
 I have saved the picture of the mural separately and enlarged it -
because I think it's wonderful.
Please note the kangaroo in the foreground.
