Thanks for all the warm welcome. I was a little bit confused trying to reply to all the posts as the site keeps shooting me off to log in everytime I push the button "Quote". So now that I push the button "Reply", I am finally able to get to write a response.
I would like to be able to answer three posts...and I cannot see their names from here. Two are from page 1. The first one mentioned an uncle doing aerial photography via a helicopter. Yes, that was my job too for a very long time it seems now...before my husband retired me with him even though at the time, I wasn't at a retired age.
The first question, also from page 1 of this post asked what D.B. is in DB Cooper (a long story). You can google the info and a whole heaps about this real guy will surface including Wikipedia. In reality, I am an Australian from Melbourne. In Australia, in all our states we have specialty beers. Melbourne is in the state of Victoria and their beer is Victoria Bitters. I cannot name my dog Victoria so I thought the South Australian beer called Coopers will be it. So I named him Coopers until DH told youngest son about our new family member and his name and sonny boy insisted his name be changed to D.B. Cooper. To satisfy everyone, since I am the mother and the trainer and have to live with him
, I call my little boy Cooper and taught him that he must respond to an emergency if we say "D.B."
Yes, JKath, I am an Australian living here in the US right now. For the last upteenth years now...
We have 3 children in Australia living their own lives and one of them live in our house over there to take care of it. He also have his own life and pay his own way too, thank the heavens for that!!
I love cooking and photographing my creation before I serve it to my dear husband...I also do other photography nowadays, just not on helicopters anymore. Been there, done that. My latest interests includes plating and food presentation. And I'd love to be able to help and love to learn from all of you. And yes, interact with all of you...in this list.
Thank you again for the warm welcome. Let's all go back to discuss cooking...!!!
