  1. It's whatever you want it to be - you're an adult aren't you?

    What's on your mind?

    Been pretty dry everywhere mate.

    Some great reads

    Just finished The Message of The Sphinx by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock. (Conspiracy Theorists R Us lol) Graham Hancock is a journalist and Egyptologist. He is the author of The Sign and The Seal and Fingerprints of The Gods. Robert Bauval is a Construction Engineer and Egyptologist, and the co-author of The Orion Mystery. Basically... a book about the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza with all the science and astronomy thrown in for good measure to... not really PROVE... but explain why the authors think that those monuments are far older than modern Egyptologists will admit or accept (ie circa 10500BC rather than the currently accepted 2500BC) "Controversial and fascinating. The Message of The Sphinx presents hard geological, textual and astronomical evidence that the Sphinx, Pyramids and other monuments in the Giza Necropolis are far older than previously believed, and that they were constructed using a technology far beyond what Ancient Egyptians supposedly possessed" Enjoyed it immensely and with an open mind, gives a lot of food for thought. Currently trying to source some more of his writing

    What's on your mind?

    Wasn't just supermarkets - a whole lot of EFTPOS machines were down and couldn't even log on due to the outage - pay wave, insert and swipe was impossible without that log on. Our's was down for just shy of 1.5 hours - aint technology a great thing?

    Then to now

    Haha I've been floating in and out from time to time.

    Then to now

    Ahhh facebook has its uses. If it hadn't been for Facebook I would never have connected with so many cousins living in the UK. It's also a great marketing / advertising tool for my business

    My mother died

    Sincerest condolences Chrisg - thoughts are with you.

    Coffee... Bacon... COFFEE BACON!

    Pretty much Jerusalem. Most cured pork products contain salts in some form - it goes rancid way too quickly if it doesn't dry properly or evenly and you risk botulism... hence why it must be done correctly and follow the recipe to the T.

    Ruhlman? Hmmm just the one at the moment but I have my local bookstore ordering me a few books at a time on Charcuterie / Salumi. As for my signature - it roughly translates to: Remember the people from whom you came. Clan Scot is free at the end, If there is no breach about the time, Where can the Lia-Fail (Stone of Destiny) Take a crown of sovereignty.

    You're spot on there!! Any small goods need to be cared for very carefully - we make a lot of Salumi / Charcuterie (ie French Saucisson Sec, Cacciatore and looking to expand our other small goods this year with Coppa, Lomo Di Cerdo, Rossoi Di Pepe, Pastrami, Chorizo, Pancetta Arrotolata etc... a lot of which do require 200 days hanging so pH levels, air flow, humidity levels, temperature and water activity are of absolute importance... because killing someone looks REALLY bad on your resumé. I actually sold out of my first batch of the Coffee Bacon within 2 days () Fresh batch of both Coffee and Maple rinsed and hanging in fridge ready for smoking tomorrow and to mix things up I've done a chilli batch. Let me know how you go.

    Wharton's or Lucky Bay are WAY better than 10 mile lol. Too easy! Mahoosive Great Whites (ie 5m +), influx of Blue Ringed Occy.. oh and the Tiger snakes seem to love our coast too lol.

    Quite possibly - my dad lives there and I'd like to try to get up to see him before winter sets in.... keep in touch. Yeah cost of flights to Esperance are astronomically ridiculous... that's why I drive lol. $170 of diesel will get me to Perth and 1/4 way back lol. Oh and the beaches (and bacon) are totally worth it
