Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hawaiin Pizza is strictly a west coast thing here. The sweetest thing I want on pizza is garlic.I like anchovies to.Pepperoni,dry hot red peppers sausage,shrooms.Although I did have a sea food pizza in Thailand that was spectacular.It didnt resemble pizza in any way except that it was round but it was delicious.

Smacky, I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult...

Vegemite: The stuff is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract right here in my home town (one of the few exports Australia has left - but that's another story entirely). It's basically the stuff scraped off the bottom of the beer barrel with an additive to two to make it (only slightly) more palatable.

Vegemite = Dead yeast with salt
Marmite = Dead yeast with salt

Pick your favorite (and enjoy this - slightly imprecise - description)

Sounds yummy....not!

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

Seems appropriate since it looks and tastes like something scraped off the bottom of your shoe.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

If you grew up eating it you'd think it was mother's milk, like I do.

My guess is that those cheek roses come from spending so much time with your cheeks on the seat of the toilet ( you can pick which cheeks will be rosiest, I am figuring both sets are going to be there.)

Yeah but you were born in Oz - that HAS to leave some sort of scar.
