Too much Cory Bernadi perhaps…
So here I am recuperating from casting my say in the Postal Survey.
Actually, I was reading an ebook: Gone With the Wind in fact.
Last night I felt a bit gone with the wind myself as I watched Classic Countdown on ABC. It was very good. Lots of uninterrupted acts.
But was it all really over 40 years ago? And did I look like this back then?
Having almost been blown over at the bus stop here in West Wollongong aroud 10.30 am, we had quite an exciting ride in the 53 into town, encountering this sight on the way:
See Wind wreaks havoc as gusts of more than 90km/h hit the Illawarra.
The bus diverted around that. By my return journey around 5pm Crown Street was still blocked and the wind she still howled, though not quite as hard.
Um, such a shame to have a loudmouth idiot in the role of #POTUS, especially given the juvenile lard-arse that “runs” North Korea! Let’s hope the Donald doesn’t get his nightmare!
US President Donald Trump has warned North Korea “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continues to threaten the United States.
- Mr Trump made comments a day after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left door open for dialogue
- President’s press briefing was supposed to be about opioid addiction
- Washington Post says Pyongyang has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery
But within hours of Mr Trump’s threat North Korea’s military said it was “carefully examining” a plan to strike the US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles.
Mr Trump’s comments, delivered to reporters at his New Jersey golf course, came after Japan said it believed North Korea could have developed the technology to miniaturise nuclear warheads — which would enable them to be put on an inter-continental ballistic missile.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Mr Trump said during a briefing which was supposed to be about the problem of opioid addiction in the US….
Meanwhile, I have been away as I am getting used to the new version of Windows 10. I find myself forced to use Edge, which I don’t really like, as weird things are happening now with Google Chrome since the Windows upgrade. For example, “log in to Twitter” on Chrome simply vanished every time I tried to link to it, but no problem in Edge. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
And further to the burger question. I am at Illawarra Leagues and can attest that the following is rather good.
And I did get my mouth around it! Just!
A while ago the Illawarra Mercury published Wollongong’s best burger joints – as voted by you. Yesterday Chris T and I road-tested one of them: Dagwood Bar and Kitchen. A very good burger.
But also well worth visiting for the bar offerings and the rest of the menu.
Chris T and I do however find the Bush’s Plate burgers even better. And cheaper.
I might also add that last week I tried a burger from the Illawarra Leagues Club: House made beef patty, baby cos, onion rings, melted cheddar, garlic aioli and truss tomato relish on a house made milk bun. Served with a side of hand cut chips. Highly commended. Here is another item from their menu:
Bangers and mash. Must try that one day. On Friday I had a really tasty fish chowder there. This is similar:
Finally, the good news is that Fuku has reopened at last, in Corrimal Street in the new building that has arisen from the old Oxford Hotel site. The internet doesn’t seem to have caught on to the new venue yet, or its name change to Fujiyama. Chris T and I plan to check it out next weekend.
