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.

I feel alright in myself. Still have dreadful pain, trouble walking, and trouble peeing. I'd rather be home to be honest. But I have an awful feeling I may have to pack a bag and head to the city...

Missed dinner yesterday because I was visiting, I just had a meat pie and a piece of Ursula's cake. (It would have been bad manners to refuse!) Beef and veggie stew for tea.
Didn't you count that as a meal Stanley?

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

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. ...

My foot and leg are still numb. I'm accustomed to it now. I did have to work hard to make my leg work properly though. Have faith Maz, you will work it out.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Have you Liz? Everyone I speak to from hospital cleaners to nurses to volunteers say "Don't have the spinal needle as it does no good". But I am quite desperate. I agreed to it out of desperation! Please give me any advice you can. Let me start by saying I had a prolapsed disc which I think is slig...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Maz, I only ever cooked a duck once. It looked huge compared to the normal size chicken that would have fed about 6 people. When I cooked it there was next to no meat on it. Very disappointing. I hope yours is more of a success than mine.

Sue and Maz I thought you would appreciate this. At a sewing class a couple of weeks ago friends asked what were we all doing in the afternoon.

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

I understand exactly how you feel Stanley. The kennels I took my dog to made a point of pairing the dogs with another friendly, same size / aged dog so that they had company. The older dogs were all inside with access to outside when they needed and they had either beds on the ground for the ones wh...

All employers here are required to pay 9.5% of 'ordinary time earnings' into an employees superannuation fund. Currently you can draw on your super fund tax free once you are over 60. It also means that once you turn 60 you can continue working, pay a large amount into your super, at a reduced tax r...

Re: STATE PENSION

Pension age in Australia is making it's way up to 67 for everyone. It's a sliding scale and currently minimum age is 65.5 years old. The advice here is to put more money into your own superannuation fund as soon as you start work, and ultimately become a self funded retiree.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We had a State Government election in Victoria Australia yesterday. My attention was attracted by the absolute thrashing our State Labor Government gave the Liberals yesterday. I have never seen the like. Methinks the Libs have a lot of rebuilding to do before the next election. What an embarrassment.

Quite right Ian. My recipe is for a smaller amount.
