hi jilli , I ve just been lurking today
1:41 am

hi sandy! thanks hun... got to chat with a lady who takes children in today. She has long term children in here care.
1:42 am
mrpresident

hi jilli :))
1:42 am
sandyloo

how old are you looking at ?
1:43 am
mrpresident

oh sandy, i can't quite believe this disaster.300,000 hectares obliterated!! and so so many lives destroyed.
1:43 am
sandyloo

unbelievable and so sad- were they lit deliberately or was it lightning
1:43 am
mrpresident

we are looking at 8-12 year olds, siblings. there is a very high demand for that age group as people only want to take in little ones
1:44 am
sandyloo

i live in fear of a fire here- everytime i see one, i drive around to find just where it is-we have had some deliberately lit recently but we have been safe
1:45 am
sandyloo

You are certainly taking on a huge challenge, i think you are amazing!
1:46 am
mrpresident

hard to say if deliberate on the Vic fires, but definitely 2 of the NSW fires lit. They started court proceedings against one up here today
1:46 am
sandyloo

by the way pres.
What happened to your shoulder?
1:46 am
mrpresident

we are the same sandy... we live right on the kuringai national park, which is huge!
1:46 am
jillibus

I guess those firebugs are insane
1:47 am
sandyloo

fire is just about the scariest thing - yes jilli and they deserve much more severe punishment than they get
1:49 am
jillibus

like burning in hell
1:49 am
mrpresident

the australian bush is very very difficult to put out... and when a fire is screaming along at 120km/h, there is nothing anyone can do... it becomes a living 'animal'
1:49 am
mrpresident

I don't think anyone can understand just how bad this fire disaster is.... whole communities wiped out!
1:49 am
sandyloo

jilli, your little saying about men is soo true- i always tell my girls to appreciate the good things about them which they dont on a lot of occasions
1:50 am
sandyloo

pres, they have some pretty bad wildfires in the US
1:50 am
jillibus

sandy -- do you mean Shakesapear's words?
1:51 am
sandyloo

We have a dam and what you call a firefighter(a pump on a trailer) just in case
1:51 am
sandyloo

yes i do jilli
1:52 am
sandyloo

that's how i interpret it anyway

Burnt white toast is okay, presumably.

It wouldn't have to be Liberace playing the piano music, though, would it?
10:15 am

food that is
10:15 am
Judi

Probably shouldn't eat any pianos made in China. Lead in the paint,etc.
10:15 am
Haz1558

Although, he'd probably put you off food as well.
10:15 am
72 Temple Owl

but he was so good to his mother.
10:16 am
Vicuna

Good point, Judi. And to tell the truth, we don't even own a piano, just an electronic keyboard.
10:16 am

nope, just the little cookie eatingness

Haz - PoW is a Twinings tea that is export only so we can't buy it! It's China tea and just gorgeous

the american warehouse for twinings is/was near me. one could buy anything there.

Export only? So we ship it in from China and then ship it out again?

so no to Lipton, Tetley and Red Rose?

You'd think the Chinese would have cottoned on to the possibilities of selling it themselves.
10:21 am

the word being, "Send tea"
10:22 am

Liptons isn't even tea. It's fake tea :P
10:22 am

ok, Owl
10:22 am
Vicuna

You stick the loose tea in, and pour in the boiling water, and then when it's brewed you put it on top of a mug and all the tea streams out through the mesh on the bottom.
10:22 am
periwinkle

why do you say that, Ata?
10:22 am
72 Temple Owl

amen to that. but i am no better, i use luisianne for ice tea dn tetley for hot tea.

because it doesn't even taste like proper tea!

Oh, I see Vic..we have a little thing similar to that, but I'm too lazy to use it

earl grey - is that the falvor with bergamot?

do all English hate iced tea, or just my in-laws?
10:24 am

No, iced tea is delicious when it's hot. Does that sound Irish?

Easier and cheaper not to be a connoiseur, peri, so don't apologize!

I like iced tea, but I'm sure there are those who don't.

much much, and really only premade bottles of the stuff

Bye peri.
10:29 am
72 Temple Owl

haz did you add anything to it? a local smoothie store here adds the fruit odds and ends rinds to a large container, yo never know what yo get but it's more refreshing than other drinks for sure. i bought McD's sweet tea and gagged.
10:29 am
Krista

interesting...and presweetened iced tea is relatively new in restaurants in the north, here..was only a southern thing before
10:30 am
Haz1558

Just lemon added - they also sell premade tea with peach here or with forest fruits, but I prefer the lemon.

Hello Orange.
10:31 am

so is flavored hot tea an abomination? the only one i ever liked was apricot by barney's
10:31 am

one of the fast food places..i think it's burger king..doesn't serve UNsweetened tea now..what an outrage :)
10:31 am

Oh no, you can get nice fruit teas.
10:31 am
Krista

hi OrangeCat
10:32 am
aslindy

hello everyone
10:32 am
Haz1558

Although people might view the fruit teas as being more of an acquired taste and not what you'd expect to receive if offered 'a cup of tea'
10:32 am
Atalante

and a lot of them smell lovely and taste of nothing
10:32 am
Haz1558

Hello aslindy.
10:33 am
Krista

i like any kind of tea, but flavored coffees put me off for some reason
10:33 am
72 Temple Owl

funny becasue i don't particularly like apricot. here one can get restaurant teas they always seem to taste better. why does tea taste better wheout than at home? lacas is one local brand
10:33 am

Hello, aslindy.
10:33 am
Krista

that's true, Ata
10:33 am

Well now, are you drinking your tea out of a china cup, TO? And you need to make sure that the water is really boiling.
10:33 am
Atalante

Metropolitan is good tea-house tea
10:34 am

though some teas should be brewed at about 90C not boiling
10:34 am
Haz1558

i think it's because someone else is making it..the way sandwiches taste better if someone else makes them :)

drinking from earthernware cup or stoneware mug
10:35 am
Atalante

yes! bring me tea! without any effort on my part!
10:35 am
Haz1558

I'm not much of a tea lover, but I reckon it does taste better out of a china cup. What do you think, Ata?
10:35 am
72 Temple Owl

yes and also ta perfect end to a meal you did not have to cookLOL
10:35 am
aslindy

wow, this is a tough board today

I have the answer ata..
10:35 am

'zactly!

yes, I'd agree with that! though it would be nice to have china cups that are safe to put in the dishwasher!
10:36 am
rururocks

you just need a couple of servants
10:36 am
Vicuna

Tastes best out of a big mug. Two sips from a dainty china teacup doesn't even give you enough to taste it!
10:37 am
Krista

I love being served, and don't mind admitting it. I do my share of serving with my picky eating/food allergic family
10:37 am
Haz1558

Ah, but Vicuna, you have your butler hovering with the silver teapot for topping up, surely?
10:37 am
Atalante

delicate flavoured teas = china cup, bog standard gimme tea now = big mug
10:37 am

ok peeps catch you later, thanks for the education. maybe i'll try my teavana this week.
10:37 am

Haz1558

Bye TO, good to see you and you can let us know the results of the tea brewing.
10:38 am

Well, Bannister could do topping up duty, but then you have to remix the proportions of honey and milk every time, and it's so much easier to get it perfect once...
10:38 am

Milk and honey? Together?

LOL no milk in tea
10:39 am

Honey matches some teas, not others, of course.
10:39 am
Haz1558

That's what I mean. Tea with milk, normal, tea with honey, I've heard of, tea with milk and honey, not very usual.
10:39 am

Same with milk, for that matter.

Haz is trying to say we yanks do tea all wrong. She's probably right.

tea with milk and honey = tea with milk and sugar but healthier

I don't know if there's such a thing as a typical Brit - so many regional variations.
10:42 am
Atalante

tea is best however you like it. But of course the British way is best
10:42 am
Haz1558

Don't just stop with tea-making with the British is best, of course.

well, I agree Ata..u have more experience with it

10:46 am
Krista

david is ok, but Posh needs to have the stick removed from her arse..does she EVER smile?
10:46 am
Judi

Looks like we're going to lose Posh and Becks to the Italians. We'll need a new British pop tart couple to take their places.

does it have to do with jiggle factor, TO? i would imagine that the fake ones stay to the left when the dancer moves to the right
10:49 am
Vicuna

She was trying to say why Jon Stewart was not funny. Because the British prefer humor that's ironic and subtly sarcastic. Jon Stewart was saying, "Oh right, we never do that kind of humor here," and she didn't get it at all!

10:51 am

It was horribly embarrassing, but hysterical. Jon Stewart was actually sort of nonplussed because he couldn't quite believe that she was really saying this stuff... and Ginger and another spice, I think, were on the show as well, and totally embarrassed.
10:51 am

The fund is a bit slow to get off the ground, TO. We may have to push it a bit. Have you a sob story? That always helps.

Good point, Haz. And I believe you're allowed to insult McDonald's, as long as you don't dare have a Mc in your name, or ever say you're loving something.

I'm sure your own unique taste is excellent, BR... but as I'm not inclined to cannibalism I hope you'll forgive me for declining to partake.

they truly are! *poof*
11:17 am
Becca Lorum

He's great thanks Haz, got 2 teeth and sitting up now.
11:18 am
Haz1558

Good for him! It's a nice stage - old enough that you know what they're about, not old enough to be able to move too far.
11:19 am
Becca Lorum

Not moving anywhere at all yet - it's great. I can plonk him down and get things done!
11:19 am
Becca Lorum

Like Babbling for instance!
11:19 am

plonking is good
11:20 am

Every minute Haz, I feel very lucky.
11:21 am
Haz1558

See you Judi.
11:22 am
Haz1558

Are you at home with him full time or do you work full/part-time?
11:23 am
Becca Lorum

Im at home full time - I used to work for myself so no job pressuring me to go back, and financially able to stay home.
11:24 am
Becca Lorum

Not planning to go back to work for some time.
11:24 am
Becca Lorum

(or ever!)
11:25 am
Haz1558

It's great that you can manage financially and are happy to be at home. I'm currently in my 26th year of maternity leave and easing down towards retirement. It's great!
11:26 am
Becca Lorum

That's what I'd like to do! We'll take each year as it comes, but we're also considering home schooling, so I wouldn't be able to work if we do that
11:26 am
Becca Lorum

and yes, I know it's very early to be thinking about school
11:27 am
kje

how prevalent is home schooling in the UK?
11:28 am
Haz1558

I don't think home schooling is done as much as it would be in the States - it's a choice that's available, however.
11:28 am
kje

yes, I don't think I have heard of it much from my Brit friends
11:28 am
Haz1558

I don't know anybody who is home schooling.
11:29 am
Haz1558

What would be your reasons, Becca?
11:29 am
kje

here, I probably know a dozen families or so that do
11:29 am
Becca Lorum

Roland Meighan's 1995 estimate of home educators in the United Kingdom was "almost 10,000",[27] and in 1996 the London Evening Standard stated that 15,000 families home-educating in Britain was a 50 percent increase from the previous year.[28] One home-education advocate estimated 50,000 children being home-educated in 2005 (thank you wiki)
11:30 am
Becca Lorum

I think school starts too young in England. I believe children need the opportunity to learn to talk and listen before being made to read and write.
11:31 am
Haz1558

I think people are certainly concerned that boys especially aren't ready for formal education so young.
11:31 am
Becca Lorum

Also I don't think small boys are designed to sit quietly for 6 hours a day - running, jumping and climbing trees is as much a part of education as book learning
11:32 am
Haz1558

Over here, they're starting a revised curriculum whereby it's all mostly play for the first year. Of course, they'll have to wait years to decide if it's worked!
11:33 am
Becca Lorum

I would consider alternaive schools like Steiner of the Green School but there's nothing like that where we live
11:33 am
Becca Lorum

*or the Green School

She has already graced the pages of American Playboy magazine - in 2002 - and is reportedly hoping to audition for a soap opera during the couple's relocation to the States.

The 30-year-old has now signed up for acting lessons in LA and has set her sights on a primetime drama.

A friend said: 'She is desperate to break into acting. She knows she isn't going to land a top movie but fancies a TV soap.'

6:13 pm
Andree

i hope they find happy homes dan
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

I think they will.
6:15 pm
dan2bit

we're optimistic too. People have asked if we will keep one, but we're committed to the fostering thing - we already have one dog of our own
6:16 pm
redturtlehead

Depending on where you live 2 dogs can be rather a lot. My dog would like a second dog. But I dont...
6:16 pm
dan2bit

Swiffer our pom is kind of used to being an only dog
6:17 pm
Andree

the last time i got a dog as company for mine it was a disaster
6:17 pm
dan2bit

having a second dog for a few weeks or a month at a time is fine. Having 9 dogs until they're weaned is a total overdose of cutrons!
6:17 pm
Andree

now i have no dogs and wish for 1 every day
6:18 pm
redturtlehead

Well, Andree, you are a little far from Dan....
6:18 pm

6:18 pm
Andree

my lease does not allow pets, i have nagged the agent but he won't relent
6:20 pm
redturtlehead

Oh Andree that is unfortunate. SInce I already have Teulu, I have to always have pet lease.
6:21 pm
Andree

my neighbour has told me the actual owner of the house who lives in queensland would say yes to a small dog, but how to contact her without putting the agent off side is what i have not worked out yet
6:22 pm
Andree

red, here it is difficult, my son and family are renting while they are building and they had a terrible time finding a place
6:23 pm
redturtlehead

I can believe it, since I've been a travel nurse, I have had to always choose assignments around the dog.
