The police said they thought he was just drunk & looking for a place to sit down...but they have never caught him!
lol.. a place to sit down or lie down?
I don't know, all I know is I was standing there half ***** & he looked at me & I ran for my hubby & a gun! He was long gone before the police got there though.
i just read this one... ~uck~
what a creep!

my, word, i LOVE vegemite! to clear up the usual questions that come my way after i say that i eat vegemite:
1.)YES, i am American. 100%. born and raised American. curiousity just got the better of me, so i asked for some vegemite for my birthday.
2.)yes, it is an acquired taste
3.)yes, it is made from the by-products of the brewing process
4.)just a warning... do not order vegemite from Agape Outback. they send you expired vegemite and give you MAJOR, MAJOR attitude if you complain. i got YELLED at for complaining when they sent me an expired jar. they care very little about the consumer and much more about the profits, IMO.
5.)if you don't take well to salt, you won't take well to vegemite
6.)vegemite is an excellent source of B-vitamins!!!!!!!!!!!!

and just a heads up:
any of my fellow Americans who choose to brave vegemite, a word of caution...
see your pinky nail? don't use any more vegemite than you could fit on that nail...
and slather your toast with butter before the vegemite goes on.
this is definately one of those times in which you will say, 'less is best.'

unless you want to be a hard-head, like my Dad.
go ahead, scoop a spoonful of vegemite out of that jar and gulp it down.. i i promise, you'll be making faces you weren't aware you COULD make within 5 seconds...
i still cannot decide which is funnier...
-the time my Dad took a huge gulp of vegemite
-the time my brother took a huge gulp of vegemite
OR
-the time Dad rolled his eyes and gulped down a huge dallop of wasabi, tried to hide the fact that he was in tears, and refused to ingest wasabi at any time thereafter...

Scrambled eggs with sausage, hashbrowns, wheat toast, and coffee. The best thing is I don't have to be at work today. Hurray!! :)

EVEN BETTER. Really fresh white bread, thickly sliced, buttered and then the "pinky nail's worth" of Vegemite. You're right about the quantity. Overkill is the main reason why new users give up on it. Also there are variations, Marmite, AussieMite and a couple of other 'Mites". Beware none of them have got the "Colonel's" secret recipe. They are yuk in comparison. Maybe that is why a lot of people hate it, they may have tried a copy.
Sounds like there is a bit of a ripoff going on with the Vegemite exporters. It is a KRAFT product, I am sure it is American owned now, yeah, it is as one of our cloners, Dick Smith, is trying to buy it back.

it is very salty, JV. but very yummy if you only use a little dab at a time.
as for the Marmite, it's a rival product...
vegemite fans bash marmite, marmite fans bash vegemite fans.... it's a regional thing, from what i understand.
