  2. My name is Kerrie and I originally from London. I am 28 and I live here with husband (he is 31), he is orginally from Sheffield. We have been here on and off for the last couple of years whilst we have been travelling and have now been back for just over a year and half. Looking to meet up with people that like a laugh and just happy to meet up for a drink or do things around the city etc. If anyone is interested, I thought I would perhaps arrange some drinks this Thursday in perhaps the Kirribilli Hotel (http://www.kirribillihotel.com.au/index.html) which is a nice pub (bit like the pubs at home) or somewhere in the city if that is better for everyone? I was thinking of anytime after 7.30pm............ Let me know if anyone is interested (anyone is welcome) :wink:
  3. Hi Guys, Do any of you fancy meeting for a drink next Wednesday (29th) after work. I guess the city would be most central for people. Was going to put it as a singles thing but hey we wont hold it against you if your not! I don't really know the bar's so any suggestions. I did go to a nice bar on Murray St. I am suggesting Belgian Beer Cafe(close to the city) - www.belgianbeer.com.au or The Vic - www.the-vic.com.au (Subiaco) Any other suggestions just let me know. I would go straight from work, so be there about 5:30 - 6ish. Anyone wants to do anything different just suggest it. Hope to meet some of you next week, Cara
  4. Hey Perth poms Missed the Perth picnic like an idiot, anyone want to meet up for a drink in Freo? How about an evening during the week? There is a really cool bar called "Little Creatures"by the marina with plenty of parking. Feel free to pm me. Luke
  5. Hi, I’m coming to Melbourne from the UK for interviews with Brightstar, which are on Tues 14th and Wed 15th April, and am looking to move out there permanently. I arrive on Saturday 11th but unfortunately my friend who lives in Melbourne isn't going to be around so I'm going to be kicking my heels for a few days. Is anyone around that weekend who fancies a few drinks and a bit of chat to get the lowdown on the city? I'm thinking of moving to Carlton/Brunswick/Fitzroy/Richmond/St. Kilda and would love to get people's options. About me: I'm 28, professional bloke. Likes socialising, hot airballooning, all sports, good restaurants and cafes. Cheers all Kris
  6. Have submitted all our medicals and police checks but OH,s police check came back as case pending. He was stopped and breathalised on Sat 16th Aug. Gave blood because reading was borderline. Didn,t hear anything, thought he was ok. Got police check done and it has case pending for DD charge. We won,t be granted any visa until the outcome of the case is decided. Does anyone know how long we will have to wait ? I thought these kind of charges were dealt with quickly.:sad:
  7. Hi all, My girlfrinend & I have moved over to Sydney from England and are keen to meet new people and make new friends. We are both in our mid 20's. I am aware that Eindhoven has organized an event for christmas day which sounds great, however we can't make it then so were wondering if anyone fancies pre christmas drinks sometime? Let me know if you are available and we'll get something sorted. Thanks, James & Rebecca.
  8. What would happen if you have a few too many beers night or 2 before meds? Should you stay clear beforehand? Just wondering as we have our meds soon and I want to make sure!
  9. Hello all, Im moving over to Brisbane 15/09/08. Cannot wait! One thing I am dreading is missing the socialising & watching footy with my pals! I am 25 & from Blackpool, massive Man United fan though and would love to meet up with ANY football follower for some beers and footy (ive heard the Pin N Whistle pubs show English footy?). So if anyone's interested, and would even like to bring along their partners (I will be), then I'd be up for a meet up! Cheers! Scott :huh:
  10. Only an Aussie could pull this one off! From the state where drink driving is considered a sport, comes a true story from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a local neighborhood tavern. Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar, appearing so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night), flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few cm, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as the rest of the vehicles left. At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyser indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication. The police officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station - this breathalyser equipment appears to be broken." "I doubt it," said the man, "coz tonight , I'm the designated decoy !!!!!!!!!!". :twitcy:

  13. Coming to Brisbane for a month.To see my beautiful Grandson, my beautiful Daughter in law and not so beautiful son.:huh:Still not sure if i've forgiven him yet for taking my gorgeous Grandson the other side of the world.:skeptical:Now, being a builder I must indulge in my daily ritual of going down the boozer, and sinking a couple of beers. (no yuppie bars). Just a nice steady watering hole, Cleveland way. prepared to travel for a nice ozzie bar. P.S Aldo, if you are about, you up for a beer mate? If that was a picture of you by that old pick up and not a length of 3X2 then you could do with a little belly!:biglaugh: Paddytd on tour 2008:Randy-git:

    They Have To Drink Beer

    THEY HAVE TO DRINK BEER Next time you have a beer, think for a moment about how it travelled to your glass. Clive Barnes and David Telfer worry about it daily. And they're forced to taste the world’s best - and worst - beers as experts. Drinking international ales is part of their job; but they insist it’s strictly in the cause of science. On the day the first publican pulled down on a tap and filled a glass with foaming amber liquid, there have been contamination problems. Beer lines - the stainless steel and plastic tubes that transport the beer from cellar keg to bar - become contaminated. Yeast is the villain if cellar hygiene is not maintained. A lazy publican who forgets to flush beer out of lines at the end of the night, leaves yeast molecules happily clinging to inside of the porous plastic. Clive Barnes worked in his father’s English pub. And flushing beer lines morning and night was a thankless chore that kept him from his social life. He decided there had to be a better way. He met 28-year-old David, a builder and keen beer taster, and they discussed the problem over a jar or three. David had studied microbiology; Clive was electronics whizz. Why not, they reasoned, employ molecular science to do the beer-flushing? Explains David, sitting in a vast former hardware store on the Gold Coast: ‘We learn in school that positive and negative ions, or molecules, attract one another. Molecules that have the same charge; i.e. are both positive or both negative don’t get on; they repel each other.’ So? If yeast [the bogey of the cellar-world] is attracted to beer lines and sticks to them, why not give them the same charges so they’ll bounce off one another? That might, they reasoned, mean no more yeast adhering to the line walls, no more bacteria lurking around giving the beer an "off" taste. The lads’ studies moved from the snug to the laboratory, where they set up a beery experiment nearly six years ago in the UK. ‘We installed a pilot system and evaluated its effectiveness compared with the traditional methods of siphoning off the old beer and chemically washing the lines. We were encouraged.’ They then flew to Australia where they had talks with Carlton United Breweries. CUB agreed to test their prototype Cellarcontrol device, a grey metal box containing the electronic nerve-centre and a black tube that was inserted onto the beer line, becoming part of it. The beer from traditional cleaning and electronic cleaning was examined microscopically for a month, with an analysis of how much bacteria and yeast remained after treatment. At the same time a leading microbiologist was carrying out his own comparison. The results: Cellarcontrol and Tradition one-all. Then came the bad news. CUB phoned to tell them that the system had failed their test and that they were not interested in further testing unless they could be convinced Cellarcontrol had the ability to combat contamination. ‘Beer spoilage,’ explains Clive,’ can come from so many directions. A publican’s wife might go down to the cellar wearing perfume; it gets into the lines. So does the flavour of onions or meat stored near the beer. The lines are very vulnerable. Our device doesn’t kill the bacteria or the yeast, it just prevents them from reproducing or becoming attached to the inner walls of the lines.’ By June, 1992, the researchers were confident enough that their system would work that they began applying for patents. They were at last on their way. They sold Cellarcontrol to bars in the US, including the famous Sands Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, pubs in the UK and bars in Japan where they tasted the local beer and some of it was "awful’. The Japanese breweries were handling the cleaning at a cost of about $7,000 a year for each establishment and in some bars the bacteria and yeast had gained a hold. And in Australia between 150-200 pubs and restaurants have embraced the system at an average cost of about $6,000 depending on the number and length of beer lines. Clive,33, and David make the electronic devices themselves with the help of one full-time worker. They have re-invested all their profits in research and costly world-wide patents in 100 countries. They look forward to getting into Denmark where beer lines from brewery to pub stretch over several kilometres. ‘We anticipate producing 10,000 units a month with 25 staff,’ says David ’If it gets any bigger we may set up a factory in Taiwan or Mexico where labour is cheaper.’ What will Cellarcontrol do for the average drinker? Dave, who agrees he has had wide experience with dozens of beers, says: ’A bad beer line that has been inefficiently cleaned, leaves a bad taste and a smell in the beer. ‘Three or four glasses of beer from such a line produces an awful hangover.’
