Problem with NZ is that it's full of Kiwis (Australia is too! ) it has electricity, which is great if you don't want to use more than one appliance at a time in the same room.

whatever

Oh you should go, you might like some of the other bands, go just for the atmosphere if nothing else as it's such good value for money. It knocks The Big Day Out into a cocked hat. You could fit in a shopping trip whilst you're over and get some nice clothes. There's only so much a girl can get from Farmers.
I dont buy clothes from Farmers btw

STORM .....

I am completely over it now. Sitting here listening to more rain and more wind, yuk. When's it going to stop?!
More of the same for tomorrow & the weekend, the forecast looked OK earlier, but they've changed their mind now

I was confused as to what you were talking about until I realised it was on-topic

Why do my chickens not lay when it's very windy?

Hi love30stm,

I was thinking after the Christchurch earthquake about the electricity situation, it’s totally pivotal in our lives to do anything now (Basically anything that heats, cools, glow or rotates...which is almost every appliance with a plug TBH). Why have we never told people they need backup power generation? You can buy an electrical power generator for about $300 that would power your fridge, TV and laptop. For about $2k you could power your whole house as per normal.

I’ve got the wrong stuff ready for an earthquake , I was thinking baked beans and clean water when I should have been thinking about how I was going to fill an emergency swimming pool. You’ll be happy to hear I have prepared all the ingredients needed for a Tom Collins, Gin slinger, G&T and I could probably improvise a few other drinks as well (Assuming my lemon tree makes it through the earthquake of course ). Priorities people, we need to prioritise for the post apocalypse world.

What you really need for an earthquake is a caravan or mobile home, with a gas cooker, well stocked larder and a few large drums of water in it.

I am sure the folks in Pakistan who are trying to get over their wee spot of rain that has left them without homes, families and never mind electricity would gladly take a wee bit of wind and rain else where in the world.

if Oz is so great why are there so many Aussies in the UK cant be for the weather as its [email protected] here?? Is there not enough bar work in Oz for them? no need to answer and I know wrong forum.

Taxi!

You've just taken me back to my childhood, my dad was from Glasgow and he used to make us beef burger sandwiches for breakfast, he'd fry them and call them BBQ.

It's still my comfort food of choice - I just haven't heard it called that for ages.
