    Yes it would have been a ...Movie Moment...if i met the same penguin again

    Maybe the eggs she was getting were my penguins or their children's...I have no idea of the lifespan of fairy Penguins.

    As always I just tell it as I remember it.

    Funny thing talking about this, having the penguin in the bathroom, has reminded me of the terrible colour scheme we had back in the day.

    Blue bath and Pink wall panel....Yuck!!!

    Rob is you Son still in Hobart?

    Hope he took a lifejacket......

    A security guard at the University of Tasmania is among several people rescued as Hobart faces flash flooding on its wettest day since 1960.
    Police say the man was trapped in a windowless room that was quickly filling with water at the university's Sandy Bay campus.
    "The man was luckily uninjured but shaken by the experience," police said in a statement.
    Two people were also rescued from a car at suburban New Town after they ignored warnings and attempted to drive through flood waters.
    Hobart's CBD and surrounding suburbs were hit hard by flash flooding after more than 129mm of rain fell on the city in 24 hours, forcing road closures which are likely to remain in place for much of Friday.
    The SES has received about 300 calls for assistance, while the Tasmania Fire Service responded to more than 110 requests for help.
    SES director Andrew Lea said the flooding was unprecedented.

    "I have been in this job for 17 years and I haven't seen an event of this scale in the Hobart area, so it is very significant," he told reporters.
    Mr Lea urged people to avoid non-essential travel in storm-hit areas, especially the city.
    "There is still a lot of water around and a lot of that water is contaminated with sewage," he said.
    "Even though the conditions are likely to ease from lunchtime ... I'd suggest that communities not be complacent."
    Premier Will Hodgman thanked emergency services for their work and urged Tasmanians to remain indoors.
    "Tasmanians are resilient and we are not unused to extreme weather events," he said.
    Energy provider TasNetworks is working to restore power to about 12,000 homes.
    Two evacuation centres have been established at Hobart's Mathers House and Kingston for those requiring shelter.
    Insurer RACT said they had already received 10 times the average number of claims since the storms began.
    "We have enacted our event response plan and our claims staff and services are positioned and ready to respond," CEO Trent Sayers said in a statement.
    Streets turned into fast-flowing rivers overnight with water surging inside homes and businesses and cars let afloat.
    "When we came down here I didn't even see my car," one woman told the Seven Network.
    "I thought someone might have stolen it."
    Nineteen schools and the University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay campus have been closed.
    It has been the wettest day in Hobart since 1960, the Bureau of Meteorology's Simon McCulloch said.
    Conditions are expected to ease in Hobart, but he urged caution as the low-pressure system moved northward.
    "The event is not over ... we are expecting the heavier falls today to start to push up our east coast and into our northeast," he said.

    ^^ well Oysters were great, a few last night and a few now so some left for tomorrow

    Snapper??? I thought it was incredibly cheap at $6 kg...there was a lot of them so a good catch dictating market price?

    Just before i went to cook it i realized it hadn't been cleaned or scaled.....Oh well a bit of work to do, I did it and cooked and it was tasty.

    Like I have said before, I would have spent 3 hrs, $15 between bait and tackle and still not had a feed 555555

    Your Snapper is a warm water variety and very much like (a pale) Red Emperor, both quite abundant in sub tropical areas. Good eating and yes, way cheaper to buy ... especially given your fishing prowess.

    That is kind of like shooting a big game animal: deer, moose, elk, sheep or bear. It is a LOT of work cleaning, skinning and cutting them up into meal size pieces... when you can buy a burger, fries and a soda pop for about $6. 555

    I can catch all the snapper or cod that I want if I take the time to launch my boat and run out to the fishing grounds. But, when I factor in the boat launch fee, the fuel it takes and the time spent, it's cheaper just to buy a meal. Of course, I've probably spent $300,000 or more on fishing trips where I release all the fish I catch.

    Not many people speak highly of food in The Philipines , but in my recent travels I have discovered that the Swiss/Austrians appear to have travelled widely here and have set up restaurants that offer excellent Euro meals at prices we could only dream of in Phuket. Wine obviously isnt taxed as heavily in the PI , and , again , they pour it liberally. None of these mains and accompaniments have cost more than 500 baht.The wine - 100 baht !

    But I was just in Las Vegas
    And the amount of great restaurants in the Casino Hotels is staggering

    All types of food, celebrity chefs
    And restaurants that are very hard to get into in their original city

    Like the meal that Heidi made us the other night... grilled elk steaks that had been marinating for several hours, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet fresh corn, salad and tacos. It was better than what we would have eaten in a restaurant... where we were originally going to go. Those chef shows are all for pomp and display... very much like so many Japanese meals served with flowers you can't eat. They look pretty but taste like crap.

    so you would pay a premium to eat food cooked by anyone as long as he was using a Gordon Ramsey ( instert your favourite celeb chef ) cookbook ...

    at the the very least he/she should be in the kitchen , organising supervising and checking the food before it goes out

    I don't know how it's that hard to figure out
    Go to some of the best restaurants in the world
    They are set up by well known chefs, who......wait for it..............probably have decent enough knowledge of restaurants to hire very good executive chefs!
    Can you believe that? A well renowned chef has an idea to set up a nice restaurant


    The point of the post was to just comment that there are a lot of good restaurants in Vegas, if anyone was interested..............

    fair enough , I just think they are the culinary equivalent of a tribute band and wouldn't pay a premium to eat in them
