I live on the Canadian Border, on the U.S. side, and have spent time in Perth. I like both places, and have good friends both in Canada, and Australia. I look forward to your posts, and friendship. Welcome to D.C.

Oh, and if you include you email address in your information, I can send some recipes from my cookbooks for you to try out. If you like them, you can use them, with a nod to the author.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Hey there, Chief!

Will PM you my email address. Would love to have a look through them and see what culinary delights you have. If there are some really quick ones, even better, as one of our playlists is dedicated to really fast recipes and called "Quickies" ("Are *you* up for a quickie? ;-)" ). Of course, we'll give full credit to you (make sure you send in a photo too!) and it will give you a way of promoting your recipes as well. We're trying to increase our viewership and subscribers, so we can help each other out. If you have a look at a couple of our vids, hopefully you'll like the overall theme/style of the vids.

As for Australia, even though I grew up in Canada with an Aussie mother, I still can't handle vegemite! This is despite living in Oz permanently for nearly 20 years! Perth is one of the most beautiful cities here in Oz, though because of the mining boom, the realestate prices are unbelievably high! Even the prices here in Brisbane are starting to creep up too.

anyway, will PM you my email address.

Diver Doug

Welcome to DC! I'm a creature of underwater (snorkeler, not diver), and look forward to some pics.

As far as Vegemite, ptooey, spit spit. You may have my portion.

Thanks for the welcome!

Sorry, mate. As my dad (a Canuck) would say about vegemite, "I stepped in too much of it on the farm to want to put it on a slice of bread" :-)

Mind you, here's a tip for anyone wanting to eat something Aussie : Emu ! If anyone here has eaten it, you'll know that it tastes better than a steak (no, it may be a bird, but it tastes nothing like chicken) with virtually no fat.

Greetings from Down Under!

I'm a partial Canuck, and have met a few emus! No way I could eat them. (Well, maybe, if they didn't have names.). The eggs are beautiful though, turquoise shells.

Trust me, Emu is actually a red meat with no fat on it whatsoever. If you marinade it in a bit of soy sauce and fry it up like a stir fry, the taste is unreal and and much better than steak.

Kangaroo is a bit gamey and is better suited to a curry or a satay as the taste is a bit strong. It's funny here how people in Oz complain about people eating roo and emu as it forms the Coat of Arms (chosen because they're two animals that can't walk backwards!), but I say I'm proud to live in a country with the world's tastiest coat of arms!

I have a question. I have heard other Aussies refer to Oz. Is there a place or area that is really called Oz and shows it on an Aussie map? Or is the name in reference to the movie, The Wizard of Oz?

Neither. Australia was there long before the movie or the book. It's how they pronounce Aus, which short for Australia.

Australians are renown for shortening words and phrases into slang. For example:

afternoon - arvo ("Going to the beach this arvo")
sandwich - sanga ("Who wants a toasted tomato sang for lunch?"
garbageman - garbo ("the garbo made a lot of noise this morning")
politicians - pollies ("The pollies in Canberra all need to be voted out!")
biscuits - bikkies ("Nothing like a good anzac bikkie at lunch")
can of beer - tinny ("I'll bring over a couple of tinies for the BBQ")
Australia - Oz (self explanatory)
fisherman - fisho ("got a great bit of fish from the local fisho")

So, Oz is just the shorten way of saying Australia :-)

Geesh, first the UK and now Australia. And to think we all speak the same language. Who'd a thunk it!
