  1. I was in the Industrial Estate at Byron last week. I visited a cafe and ordered a cup of coffee. I was prompted by the Barrista to choose from a number of paper cup sizes. I jokingly chided them for the fact that they were using them, instead of porcelain cups. They pointed out that they were obliged to use the throwaways because of stringent Council regulations that prevented them from using the porcelain variety. Something is wrong ?
