Enormous issue down South (besides metro area) so you could be right. I wonder how much of Australia's GDP is down to meth production? It's everywhere.

No it isn't everywhere. I have never seen it anywhere.

You possibly don't know what to look for .Or perhaps your area is not  engulfed with the stuff. Then lucky you. Even the Venezuelan server in the tapis  bar the other night said as much which was echoed by a lawyer I contacted recently as well as a few estate agents. I am talking WA but we are hardly alone.

Please can anyone help me ? … for the last three years I have made a Pavlova for the family Christmas pudding … no problems crispy and white in colour … this year about to make my third attempt … I have done nothing different but the meringue is turning brown before it is cooked … and not a hint of brown on the peaks … but almost milk chocolate and gets darker the longer it cooks … if I could remember how to post photographs I would … I use white wine vinegar that is three years old … kept in the fridge until I need it the amount I need I allow to reach room temperature … could this be the problem , is the vinegar too old ? … 

an hour in cooking my third Pavlova … shiny White meringue … used a new vinegar …

Yes it's the classic business model to sell you the machines at low prices and then be a monopoly supplier of the pods at high prices. Same as with ink jet printers except the market in compatible pods is yet to take off.

Lavazza capsules are 20p each from Amazon.

What is all this adblue stuff in the news?

Is it only an issue in Australia or world wide? Are the Chinese punishing us again?

Does it affect diesel cars or only trucks?

Rising demand for crops in China. 

The same ingredient in AdBlue is also in Fertiliser

to take advantage of rising demand for crops farmers using more fertiliser 

fertiliser prices ricketing

china want to stop that inflation so ban exports. 
 

Since Australia got most of their AdBlue from China they need to source it from elsewhere.  Temporary blip I would imagine.  
 

Though rather inconvenient if you happen to be running out.  I know my car is electronically restricted and won’t start if AdBlue runs out.

Is it a separate little container for it like with your windscreen washer?

Yeah. It’s generally housed behind the fuel filler flap. A separate, smaller aperture reservoir.  I had to fill mine a few weeks ago. Car is at 10,000 miles. I think I paid £9 from Halfords for a big plastic container of the stuff. The container comes with a flexible nozzle that screws on the cap and inserts into the reservoir, so no need for a funnel.   It was very easy.  Zero mess.  I’m sure car dealers would charge £50 for doing it for you 🤨

 

*correction £15 for 10 litres

We had our Pfizer booster jabs yesterday. So far I’ve had no reaction, husband feels wiped out. He has never had a reaction before, whereas I had a reaction to my first AstraZeneca, Will be interesting how he reacts as he isn’t used to feeling under the weather, hasn’t got up  and gone back to sleep.

We are locking up the house and taking a leisurely drive down the west coast to arrive this time next week at our friends' place for Christmas.  The dog is coming too.  Neighbour's daughter keeping an eye on the horses.

Have a lovely Christmas everyone and "see" you in the New Year.  😀

Horrible news of at least 1 child killed in Tasmania when a bouncy castle took off into the air and several children fell from it at height.

How horrible to deal with. The last day of primary school and a celebration. Sounds like negligence by someone that the thing could take off 10 meters into the air.

We have just made the hard decision to cancel going to Sydney to spend Christmas with our daughter😢 The main problem as we see it, is what do we do if the worst scenario we test positive before we are due to return, we don’t stay with our daughter, flat too small, would have to leave our rental, and quarantine somewhere quickly.

He probably just wants an excuse to watch cricket in bed for the next 5 days?

I see four kids have now died and many injured.  It’s heartbreaking.

Such a freak call of nature. Four others, I believe with very serious injury. Last day at primary school as well. What I thing to happen at anytime, but so close to Christmas , even more so. will the festive season ever be anything but a sad reminder for those parents impacted for the rest of their lives?

Qantas will start flights from Perth directly to Italy next year. How good is that? Just need the right conditions now to take advantage. My expectations is that travel will not be on the cards next year. Three years lost. 

On a more positive note Perth CBD looking far better. Many more people about. It seems the Mayor's call for a safer and more attractive Perth, is starting to have some impact. Yagan Square, I believe is going to have a permanent police presence. Not as many of the usual unruly mob around today.  I didn't notice any homeless come to think of it, and only a few meth impacted souls. Lets hope it's a sign of better things. Obviously after dark, could be a totally different thing. 

What's with the weather? A spot of rain and cloud and cool? More the same tomorrow. At least the British Beach Party going to tomorrow evening will feel more like the real thing.
