  1. On the subject of Promos I turned 77 yesterday and so far have had a $25.00 voucher from my wine supplier, a free specialty Scone from Bakers Delight, a $30.00 voucher from Philips, plus the usual weekly offers from Coles/Liquorland/First Choice/Dan Murphy/Woolworths. It seems these days we must be getting ripped off something fierce if retailers can offer some of the deals that have been coming lately.
  2. This is our Art House. https://www.google.com/maps/uv?pb=!1s0x6b72d1fed05cc13d%3A0xb71b44ea9c33cb41!3m1!7e115!4shttps%3A%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipN3347_SgOY4H2U13IW3cisVRvikCgSZg4SFF_Q%3Dw301-h160-k-no!5swyong art house - Google Search!15sCgIgAQ&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipN3347_SgOY4H2U13IW3cisVRvikCgSZg4SFF_Q&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwicwpr-xNDxAhWDbysKHY_BAE8QoiowFXoECE4QAw
  3. I've had the grand tour of the place, my Doctor is big in the local Amateur Theatre group. Quite a bit of the expense went on the latest and greatest stage and scenery equipment, there is quite a high bulge in the roof over the stage where bits and pieces of set can be bodily lifted and lowered as needed.
  4. To top things off with the Greater Sydney lockdown extension, of a week at the moment, was an email this morning notifying me that next Wednesday evenings performance by Opera Australia of Carmen at our local theatre has been cancelled. Unfortunately due to their tight schedule they are unable at this time to reschedule a later performance. Just happens to be my favourite Opera. BTW our local theatre is the ducks guts, only about 2yo and cost $50M to build.
  5. Qualifications required: Look pretty, read at a distance of 3Mtrs, able to not act too dumb.
  6. Completely in isolation is self evident. Partly in isolation is when one is supposed to stay at home unless it is vital that one leaves, this is the one that is causing the problems if the gatherings at beaches etc are anything to go by. The bloody cheaters are, as usual, mostly to blame.
  7. It's a Muslim country by the look of the Mosque in the background. Bridge over The Creek in Dubai?
  8. The secret is to freeze each meal lot overnight in a container and the following morning transfer the meal to a cryovac bag. This avoids freezer burn, misshapen bags, and does not use excessive room in the freezer.
  9. Something to be said in favour of late starts I feel, we've just been together for 30 years. A badly betrayed 46yo bloke and a 42yo widow at the start, best 30 years of my life, and SWMBO agrees.
  10. Remove any and all benefits they are getting. If they refuse to vaccinate they are risking the rest of the population and deserve no help or respect whatsoever. There will be some genuine medical reasons for not having the shot and a lot of bodgy claims too.
  11. Just received an email from Princess regarding some coastal cruising for later this year, has there been a change of heart regarding local cruising?
  12. The Feta Cheese pot has a permanent place in our fridge, along with Romano, Bega Black Label Cheddar and whatever happens to be cheese of the week for after dinner. We use Feta on our salads and Bruschetta as well as in our cooking, and it needs to be kept in Brine to maintain its taste and long life. A brine needs to be renewed every couple of months and is simply a mix of 1 part non iodised cooking salt to 10 parts water, eg 100g salt to 1 litre(1000g) water.
