    Melton Mowbray Pie in Perth

    Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside due to the gelatin. My boys like lots of jelly so I make my pastry thicker than is normal to accommodate. I could bake longer to dry the pastry through but I prefer it soft inside. yes, I use lard but I seriously can't tell much difference on the odd occasion that I've used margerine. It involves cooking a large pork shoulder Kate so if you're prepared for that expense/time, let me know and I'll send recipe

    Melton Mowbray Pie in Perth

    . . Got tired of searching for a decent pork pie so now I make my own and also make brawn. That's a large dinner plate btw.........Once started on it, it's hard to stop.........just add HP brown sauce to dip Traditional home baked English pork pie by Kevin Dickinson, on Flickr

    Why this obsession with being Australia?

    And thank God that they are. One of him is enough.
  4. Wherever you lay your head, that's your home. Thinking of you Tink. Shoot me a pm if you're down my way xxxx
  5. Josh was successful at an interview for gym manager yesterday and starts tomorrow, after previously applying for 8 jobs to fill in his time whilst he waits for the police intake. After waiting for over a month to hear from any of them, today, 5 of them emailed him to say that they have a position for him! Too late, you should have responded sooner!

    Why this obsession with being Australia?

    Yes he has, Seems he's got a pretty poor memory or else he's running out of trolling material. Why his obsession with what other folk do is beyond me. It's up to the individual who they wish to support and nationality should have very little to do with it. It's akin to those who support their family no matter what they do,right or wrong, just because they're family Still, it gives those who wish to trot out that tired old cliche of plastic Aussies something to do/say, despite me never having heard the term in all my yrs in Oz

    Citizenship by decent

    Regretfully, my understanding is that descent can only be claimed from parents, not grandparents. If you're looking for migration routes, may I suggest that google is your friend and the question you posed is easily answered via that route.

    History of illegal stay

    I don't doubt it...............there are agents...............and then there are agents..................no doubt my accentuation will be lost in translation. As someone else said, hopefully Immi is monitoring and I'm pretty sure that if DAF monitor my sales of prickly pear on gumtree, (and I got a visit from them) Immi will be around here and the OP will get a visit, if not in person, then on any application

    What's happening to Aussie sport?

    And it continues. Anyone with an ounce of pride would bow out rather than continue knowing full well that most here know it's a friendless fraud. It's like the Python black knight sketch where he keeps getting limbs chopped off but insists on fighting on

    What's happening to Aussie sport?

    Yep! He's be long gone on many other forums just as he was on britishexpats. I'm glad the moderation here is more lax as it provides a good laugh regularly

    What's happening to Aussie sport?

    Of course your didn't. It wouldn't come up in your google searches for negative Oz headlines

    What's happening to Aussie sport?

    Which really must speak volumes with regards to what many would regard as obsessive behaviour, likely instigated/ based on a "desire to be heard" (at least somewhere) because in real life. likely no one is listening to the fireman come glass collector come manager

    What's happening to Aussie sport?

    Too busy looking for negatives to actually read what he is posting. If it looks like a negative Oz title, he'll post it

  21. She won't regret it. A whole new world for me and I'm yet to have the right one done. Can't wait! After wearing 'em for 8 yrs, no more glasses except for reading and I might not need them once the other eye is done. Hope the queue isn't too long for her. I couldn't wait as they threatened to take my driving licence away.
