There's an interesting piece on the conscription vote of 1916, plus we tell you what's hot and what's not and give the lowdown on why the humble pineapple was such an important fruit that people HIRED it to show off at dinner parties!
Specialist collector Jerry Bell takes us inside Australia's pioneer match industry, and from the US our correspondent Rod Labbe looks at the unsung virtues of the Aurora Monster Kits. Plus we explore the exquisite bear carvings of the Black Forest and look at the rise of the incense burner.
From the UK, correspondent Ivor Hughes takes a look at the influence of Japanese art on western culture, and Judith Dunn wraps up her exploration of exotic drinks from afar - hot chocolate, anyone?
