In Australia we call carbonated drinks 'soft drinks'. My husband was of English descent and I am of English and Irish descent so we game across a few disparities in what we called things. I used to say what's for tea. He would correct my and make me say 'dinner'. After 'dinner' he would ask me what was for 'pudding'. I would reply that I was sorry but I didn't know how to make puddings - what ty

What a delightful topic. I participate in the tea ritual a few times a day. Despite the fact that I am often complemented on my ability to make a 'good cuppa' I have of late been using tea bags and my, some are better than others. Naturally, when pouring from a pot I put the milk in first, however if I am using tea bags I defer the pouring of the milk so that it doesn't affect the process of osmo

Greer's not very well respected in Australia. Many people are disgusted that she would make these comments when Irwin has a young family who are grieving. Anyway, apparently he's real legacy was that he set up a conservation foundation and bought huge tracts of land in order to conserve threatened wildlife. I think Greer should shut up.

It is sad - he did a lot for the promotion of conservation of native wildlife.

I remember reading somewhere that Denmark has a particularly good social welfare system also very democratic corporate structures which don't lend themselves to a culture of bullying in the workplace (unlike Australia which has appalling middle management). I like the sound of Denmark though I think it would be tough to learn the language.

I can't bear to watch the world cup anymore - the Australia-Italy match left a bad taste in my mouth. What a joke that was. Love the game but not when the referee hands it to a team on a silver platter. Its hard to take FIFA seriously after that.

Back to the dwarves... I think the belief system of this Phillipino Judge should be respected. My husband has a magic dwarf. He sees him out and about and when he does he takes it as a good omen. 'There is my magic dwarf', he says 'something good is going to happen'. My son on the other hand used to yell out at the top of his voice 'there's an oompa loompa mummy'. So the cult of the magic dwarf

Who did win the women's figure skating gold medal. I only saw the short programs and thought Cohen was a lovely skater. I used to skate competitively when I was young (though not at that level) and now just enjoy watching it.

I am going through a reclusive stage which is why I spend so much time on the internet. It is due to circumstance and I hope this phase doesn't last forever because even though I am middle aged (recently accepted this label) I want to get out there again. My solace is the example a friend set. She used to operate on a very manic high energy level, looked like Grace Kelly and had the world at her

Praetor - good luck to you! And to everyone else. In 2006 I just want to get my health sorted out and pull myself together...and I am thinking of taking up smoking. I am sick of eating organic fruit and vegetables, not smoking, rarely drinking, not taking drugs and yet always being more ill than anyone else I know. So perhaps its time to get sullied.

Here is a perspective on socks and laundry from the world's worst house wife. I really am. Once I even burst out crying at the deli because I didn't know what type of processed meat to buy for lunches. Anyway, last week I threw away about 30 socks because I was having trouble pairing them up, distinguishing the dark blues from the blacks and working out who the hell owned them in the first place

I am not a cat person but last year at my aunts, her cat sat next to me and began stroking my hand as if sympathetically with her paw. I thought this odd but soon after discovered I had a potentially serious health issue which needed addressing. I have been thinking a bit about cats lately and next time we move I will make sure I move somewhere were I can have one. I think cats can befriend and p

Sounds like the place to be - London's great. Here in Melbourne we spent New Year's Eve trying to stay hydrated in 43 degree celsius heat (110 degree fahrenheit). It cooled down a little over night but still very hot.

Congratulations to you both. Having my son was the best day of my life so I understand your joy. All the best! Btw - my birthday is on the 26th December. Don't let people get away with the one big present instead of two little ones (bday and Xmas) trick.

I taught my self basic French as I was performing relief teaching and the French teacher at the school had a breakdown and went awol. I sorted out the language cupboard and found great resources and would teach myself the following days lessons each evening. I had studied a year of Italian while at University and found them grammatically similar, but still had to develop an ear for French. I taug

I think my son and I drove past that work in progress a few months back. If it is what you are talking about, it is near Liverpool by the freeway. I just asked my son and he remembers it more than I do. We think that at the time we saw it, it was quite a large pile of dirt being shaped into a pyramid. We assumed that it was going to be some sort of freeway sculpture like the ones by the Melbourne

I want to wish you luck SGR A, Often once you put your quest out there and inititiate some sort of effort, which is what you are doing, the universe takes over (that's my experience anyway). I also believe that other factors transcend numerology and astrology so keep an open mind. All the best!

I think there good and bad in all cultures, though there are cultural idiosyncracies. Each culture seems to go for a slightly different look too. I remember when I was young and travelling around Europe with some friends, Italian men wouldn't leave my blond friend alone. I have very dark hair and a celtic look and no one looked twice at me in Italy, yet I received lots of attention in Northern Eu

I don't think you should be calling a woman a 'bitch' on this website. It would be like me referring to a male as a 'bastard' on this website which I wouldn't do even if he was. Perhaps I am old fashioned. Also, I know of a few men who have gone on welfare to avoid paying child maintenance. They were either ill themselves or didn't have much of a career to give up anyway. What that woman did is

I thought 'villain' too. Is the 'James Bond' target audience predominantly male or female, because my ex is more obsessed with James bond and associated memorabilia than I could ever be bothered.
