lachlan-jack-in-a-box Photo Steve DavisIn a week in which the earth moved for all of us, at least to a magnitude of 2.6, we dedicate the Adelaide’s Yesterdays segment to the history and threats of earthquakes to Adelaide.

And don’t mention the Richter Scale or Nigel will jump down your throat!

Should Adelaide put its name on the hills face in the style of the famous Hollywood sign? The boys discuss this and come up with some novel ideas. What funny old fellows!

And we explore why one Adelaide mum has found her toddler preferring simple, non-battery-using toys, particularly a traditional jack-in-the-box. Or should we say devil-in-a-box? That’s Lachlan pictured.

Grace Bellavue, a current Adelaide Visa holder is brought before the council again – will she be stripped of her title?

There’s also a blind wine tasting that staggers the judges and Daniel Cameron takes us out with a selfless tune.
