Someone once asked Mahatma Ghandi what he thought about Western Civilization. He thought it could be a really good idea.

Hmmm.. the last time I ate damper, Aussies didn’t even celebrate Halloween.

Damper = an unleavened bread cooked in campfire ashes or on a hot rock.

@DNT WTF do celebrate Halloween for anyhow.
Last time the kids came round I gave them a lecture on supplanting Australian culture, with americanisms, gleaned from too much TV.

You should’a seen their eyes glaze over. They have never ever come back.

Neat trick HUH?

Re damper: @DnT 1725. You should be able to cillect Spinifex seeds to the north of you. (In the Pitjantjatjara lands) Then you can make damper Aboriginal stylee.

apparetlly artifacs prove thaat they have been making “bread’ for over 30,000 years. And are they tired. In fact; THEY MADE IT UNTIL THEY WERE BLACK IN THE FACE.

Lamington = brown on the outside, white on the inside.

BTW. If you have young kids, do as the Aboriginies did. Send them out to collect the seeds. They are lower to the ground. At the average adult height, it is a back-nreaking task. Mode d’ emploi = grind the seeds into a fairly fine flour. I did it by the traditional method. I made a Ball-mill out of a short length of PVC pipe, and put some 0.50 inch ballbearings in it.

Fresh steamed Tuna on a bed of fresh grated Coconut. Washed down with green coconut juice laced with rum. Then Coconut cream for desert.

GOD!! I feel hungry. I think I will put in a share order or two, then sally forth to the Coffee Shop. That is the beauty of being retired. I am now old and fancy free.ie. I can do as I effen well please, when I effen well please. I answer to no man – or woman, for that matter.
