Just after New Years we suggested a resolution for everyone to take on - keep left unless overtaking. This driver obviously didn't get the memo.
Southbound on M5, St Andrews. Travelling in Lane 4 of 4, male driver not overtaking any vehicle or turning, issued with $325 fine / 2 demerit points infringement for 'Drive in right lane on Multi lane road where speed limit is over 80km/h'.
Funny how everyone on both sides say he's was one of the best PMs ever yet they forget that his stance on Islam was spot on then and more so now....
🇦🇺 Prime Minister John Howard 🇦🇺
"Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks."
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.'
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,
'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American and Canadian citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
What's cooking? How about a little zucchini slice?
. 6 eggs . 1 cup grated zucchini . 1⁄2 cup (90g) self-raising flour . 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 180°C/360F. Line a 20 x 30cm baking tray with baking paper. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, add the remaining ingredients and season to taste. Pour the contents into the prepared tray and bake for 25 minutes or until nice and brown. Allow to cool slightly, then serve sliced with a simple little salad.
VEGGIE SMUGGLING TIP:
Grate or add whatever veggies that suit your taste, budget and what's in YOUR cupboard. Don't be afraid to try something new. If you have some corn, carrots, peas, throw some in and add to the nutrition and flavour.
During colder months, a dash of worcester sauce is a welcome addition.
If you just can't help yourself and you have to add meat, then roughly chop ham, chicken, bacon or turkey, it's up to you. I luuuuuuuurve a little finely sliced salmon in this dish for variety.

MY HEART SKIPPED A BEAT when I saw these words this morning - THE TALE OF KATE RITCHIE & MAE WEBB. I have been waiting a long time now to share a little of that story with you. I am so incredibly proud of my daughter and I am learning to be proud of me. Thanks to Georgie and the wonderful team at The Grace Tales.. Here we are. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Another super easy, budget friendly home made take-away idea.
* 500g (1 pound) diced beef (also great with pork, chicken or prawns)
* 1–2 teaspoons curry powder
* 2 tablespoons (50g) crunchy peanut butter
* 1 cup (250ml) coconut milk
Heat a large nonstick frying pan until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cook the beef for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown.
Reduce heat, add the curry powder, mix well and cook for 1 minute. Add the peanut butter and coconut milk and stir well until combined. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
If you are using a cheaper cut of meat, pop it in a bowl with some chopped under-ripe paw paw. Paw paw has an enzyme that tenderises meat, the longer you can leave it the better! This stir-fry produces a super yummy sauce, add to it whatever veggies you have; chopped capsicum, onion, carrot, celery or pineapple.
Serve on steamed rice or fresh in season steamed veggies. You can add whatever fresh herbs you have handy, coriander and parsley are ideal.

I unfortunately and regrettably have had to cancel this week’s shows due to illness and sudden admission into Hospital. I am disappointed that I won't be able to perform at the Australian Open Tennis tonight nor the Mornington Peninsula RHST shows this weekend.
I am hoping to make a speedy recovery and be back doing shows very soon.
While it can be tough, the key is not to bail out at the peak of any anxiety, but rather stick with it until the anxiety subsides – even a little – as this will help train your mind to realise that the white knuckle moment will eventually pass and that you can get through it.
If you're managing anxiety, there are steps you can take and strategies you can learn to interrupt your body’s natural ‘flight or fight’ response and control anxiety before it controls you. To get to #knowanxiety and the treatment options available, visit bb.org.au/1IrMfNt

* 200g/7oz packet Lattice biscuits (though any flat-square biscuit will work, failing this you can use puff pastry) * 600ml or 1 Pint of thickened cream * 100g/3.5oz packet Vanilla Pudding mix
Line a 20 x 30cm lasagne dish with baking paper. Layer with 8 Lattice biscuits flat side up. In a bowl, mix cream and pudding until thick, then spoon onto the biscuit base.
Top with another layer of biscuits, shiny side up. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
Any flat cracker/Sao/Huntley & Palmers/Cream Crackers/both puff pastry and shortbread pastry work (after baked in the oven first of course). Simply lay the sheets of pastry out on baking paper, cook as per instructions on the packet, generally 180C 7-8 minutes and then let cool. cut into equal sized squares.
NOTE: I LOVE THIS SLICE WITHOUT ICING, IT'S MORE THAN ENOUGH. BUT IF YOU WANT IF YOU JUST CAN'T HELP YOURSELF, HERE'S THE ICING/FROSTING RECIPE;
For a real ‘razzle, dazzle’ finish, top with this super simple Passionfruit Icing.
In a bowl, mix the ingredients together until an even spreadable consistency is reached. This icing is also lovely on the Coconut Cupcakes, page 144 of 4 Ingredients Menu Planning.
I FIND THE COTTEE'S PUDDING MIX THE BEST, AND YES YOU CAN MAKE A CHOCOLATE SLICE WITH CHOCOLATE PUDDING MIX.
IGA'S STILL STOCK INSTANT PUDDING MIXES & I CAN STILL FIND COTTEE'S PUDDING AT MY LOCAL WOOLIES, OF COURSE IT GETS DOWN TO YOUR LOCATION.
If you can't find any pudding mix, then instead of the pudding mix and cream, go with this. Not as simple and a few more ingredients but a good back up if you are struggling to find oldie but a goodie:
* 1/4 cup caster sugar * 1/2 cup custard powder (any brand) * 1 & 1/2 cups of cream * 2 & 1/2 cups milk * 1 tsp vanilla essence
Ok, so a few more ingredients, not as quick and easy as I've pointed out but not a bad alternative. Put sugar, custard powder and cream into a saucepan and stir over a medium heat until it starts to thicken Add milk ½ a cup at a time and whisk continuously until the custard is thick. Let everything cool slightly before layering onto the biscuits as per above.
