The Story of Valentines Bakehouse

“The Valentine’s artisan sourdough bakery and coffee shop operates out of three locations – Rutherglen, Albury and Wodonga.”

Recently Peter and I had a lunch break at Wodonga. We went to the Valentine’s coffee shop in Wodonga. The bread was very much to our liking. There were a variety of fresh healthy options to go with the bread. And the coffee was very good too.

We had been staying overnight in Gundagai and were on our way back home to Dapto. We were travelling in our ancient Audi. Peter’s driving went very well. He loves driving the Audi long distances. The Hume Motorway is not a bad road to drive on.

  1. How wonderful! This makes me smile! πŸ™‚
    We ate a lot of sourdough bread when we lived in San Francisco, CA. And we gave it as gifts to people who had never eaten it before. πŸ™‚
    I continue to pray for you and for Peter.

  2. Sourdough is almost the only bread that gets eaten in Finland, Uta. At least when I was there. Helvi’s mum always made their own bread and for a family of nine children that was really something.

  3. Uta…I want to ask you some questions regarding the Men of the American occupation of Germany after the war up till around 1951…I want to ask if you are aware of the seeming large number of American servicemen who divorced their American wives and lived with and married German / European women?…
    I have been reading an article written in Feb’ 1951 by an American woman traveling on a steamer back to America and she and her friend get a American officer to confess why he too was divorcing his wife to get back to Germany to be with his fraulein there…here is the article.. …If you want to give your own candid opinion or knowledge about the subject, this is my email address.. :

    1. This is a very interesting subject, Free Fall. I, and also Peter, are going to read the Esquire article. I am sure both of us are going to have to voice an opinion on the subject. πŸ™‚


    Thanks for this link, Berlioz!

    Peter could find this movie on YouTube, So we have just been watching it. We could actually remember that we had already seen it once, that was probably more than 60 years ago. It was very interesting to watch it again, especially with Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones in it, as well as Frederic March!
