Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

I have a railway clock ticking away in the kitchen. I really miss it when it stops chiming.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Isn't it nice to have some cool weather again? We even had a little bit of rain this morning.

Re: Where Have You Just Been?

We had a Christmas with a difference this year. We flew to Sydney and went out of the harbour with the Sydney to Hobart yacht race fleet. It was amazing; a brilliant atmosphere. We followed the lead yachts out through the heads until we couldn't keep up any more. Once we lost them we turned around a...

Is it a tower for making musket balls by dropping molten lead inside from the top? Given enough distance to fall, the lead blobs form perfect spheres.
I agree. We have a shopping centre in the middle of Melbourne built around a shot tower, and it looks remarkably like this.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I am roasting tomatoes and garlic (sorry Maz) at the moment to make passata, so it's likely to be spaghetti bolognese for us. The rest will be frozen for bases for casseroles and curries.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

A state of emergency declared in Victoria today due to the fires. An enormous number of people evacuated from their homes. There are 4,000 people trapped in one town on the East coast; the one road in/out was closed about a week ago. Many didn't realise how bad it would be and chose to stay and defe...

Least he could do. I hope he pays the political price. I'm not sure what he could have done if he'd been here Stanley. Nearly every state is on fire, he can't be every where at once. It's dreadful.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Sadly, there are bush fires raging in almost every state in Australia. Lives lost and many properties destroyed; and it isn't even summer yet. The weather in Victoria has been very strange for spring. We had the heater running last week (first time ever in November) with top temperatures between 13c...

I cook it myself, would you believe, in the microwave. Not a clove of garlic in sight. I will send you the recipe for next time if you wish. I wouldn't buy it from the supermarket any more.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this site but it’s been a miserable few months. My Mum died and I must admit, now that I’ve got used to the idea, it was time. She refused food for so long she weighed only 33 kg when she died at 92 years old. Exactly a month later my husband’s 95-year-old Uncl...

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

I agree Stanley, it certainly makes it easier when chasing family history. Not so applicable these days though, even if people do get married women tend not to change their name. I think that's a good idea.

My son has had a lizard living in his garden for years. He saw it often and so did the dog - but dog never bothered the lizard and lizard never bothered the dog. Nine weeks ago, son had a sleeper wall rebuilt ( where lizard lived), so he relocated the lizard to a quiet area of a nearby bush creek. ...
