Guest posted a topic in Aussie Chathttp://www.london24.com/news/tv_chef_jamie_oliver_brings_jobs_boost_to_stratford_1_885239 Love this bloke from his brilliant campaign to get school meals from something that was a choice of just crap to something resembling a decent healthy meal. Oliver also created the Fifteen Foundation which every year takes fifteen young adults who have a disadvantaged background, criminal record or history of drug abuse, are trained in the restaurant business. A bloke who had nothing but has worked himself up through sheer hard work to become the man he is today.:notworthy:

Been having a read of some recent threads about sport etc, world cup, rugby, and how in some peoples opinion it can bring people together. Whilst I appreciate this sentiment, and to degree agree with it I think in the main we are living in cloud cuckoo land if we truly believe this the case. Completely opposing sides, (politically, humanitarian, etc) can meet on the sporting field and for all intents and purposes a fairly friendly and humourous atmosphere will pervade, yes, there will be strong support for each team and the banter and competition between the fans will often be intense. Trouble is, that the supporters of such a game are just that, supporters. At the end of the day NOTHING they say or do will have any great impact on the grand scheme. Because those in power and purport to lead us will undoubtedly continue with their sniping, back stabbing and lies. I have just been watching the opening ceremony of the world cup, and for all intents and purposes, (if you believed the media coverage) South Africa is nearly reunited and EVERYONE is getting on as if nothing is wrong. I have only been to South Africa once, and IMO there is still huge divides and an atmosphere that seems to pervade is one of distrust and intolerance, from both sides of the argument. Sport is sport is sport, always will be and that will never change. For two/three/four/five/six weeks yes there may be an atmosphere of friendliness and companionship but I will guarantee once the sporting spectacle is done and dusted the countries involved will once again commence their constant one upmanship, and arrogance to other nations. Nothing will ever change I'm afraid. As I said countries are led by individuals who will continue to reflect views that are for the most part out of kilter with compassion and understanding. Maybe, just maybe if some of the supporters of these games were put in charge then things may change. The supporters of such sporting spectacles have seen the real people of each country and for the most part realised that though we may be separated by colour, religion, beliefs the vast majority of people would like to live in a world where a sense of understanding prevailed and appreciate each others beliefs and cultures. Instead what we get is the extremes in both camps. Where the more radical and opinionated voices get all the attention and once again stereotypes and assumptions are formed and a sense of mistrust and arrogance once again prevails. I would love to think that such sporting events could bring about change. Not just change for the tournament duration but change for the long term. But I am afraid to say sport will always just be that. It will NEVER solve the problems of the world and anyone who believes such a thing whilst they have my admiration are living in a world that just doesn't exist. Cheers Tony
Hi all As we have got a CO and have booked a medical this month, we need to start thinking about moving to Oz. Tentatively, we are thinking about Feb/March next year. I have a piano at home now. We are not sure what to do with it, sell or bring it to Oz. Is piano a delicate good so needs to be handled carefully by the removal company, so it will cost more (including the insurance)? The piano itself only cost us or worth 500-600 pound. Our first thought is to sell it, but probably need to bring if nobody wants to buy it.
