Dreaming up a coffee table

Because we do most of our weekday dining on the coffee table... i think we need to get a new one because ours is too small, and out of proportion with our sofas. Also the shelf seems to turn into an black hole, and the remotes are NEVER on the table.

Necessity is the mother of invention as they always say... so why settle for someones design. Our new coffee table will be a 80cm square(steph balks at 1m), no black hole shelf, so you can sit under it. a small drawer for the remotes. and the Pièce de résistance, a sunken circle in the centre, in which a lazy susan could sit in it, flushed. That way we could have our chinese meals in front of the TV, and not miss out on the food on the far side or have to reach over. Now i wonder if i can get some better homes and garden person to make this?

Vegemite update

Authorities probe Vegemite ban reports
Sydney Morning Herald - October 24, 2006
Mystified Australian authorities have launched an investigation into reports Vegemite has been banned from entering the United States.
It seems it was all a bit of a hoax?

US govt denies it's banned Vegemite
Sydney Morning Herald - October 25, 2006
Australians traveling to the US can breathe easy. So can the 100,000 or so Australian expatriates living in America.
This almost reminds me of Nokia phones being used as radar detectors...

PS3 vs WII

I want both, but not sure about the multi layered...

Plug

Its not often that I get the chance to plug a site that's a great idea, better still, this one's for the girls... 'My Guy Online' caters for buying that special guy in your life a gift for what ever occasion, be it for birthday, kiss and make up, or just because. Not to mention Christmas just around the corner, what more could you want?

Girls, follow the link and you won't be disappointed... a gift for the boy within for all ages!

Who would've thought...

Weird ban... Definitely, I don't understand it

Happy Vegemites? We don't think so
Sunday Hearald Sun 22.10.2006
The bizarre condiment crackdown was prompted because Vegemite has been deemed illegal under US food laws.

The great Aussie icon -- faithfully carried around the world by travellers from Down Under -- contains folate, which under a technicality, the US allows only to be added to breads and cereals.

I wonder if Promite and other variations have been banned also.

Expats throughout the States will be devistated.

Gwai Loh and Chinese

Today we zipped off to Bunnings to look for another pot for our orphan strawberries when we found this decorative plaque in the gardening section...

Any one with a remote knowledge of chinese characters knows that the character below isnt fire... (All they had to do was google)

I just hope it wasn't Made in China like most of the stuff sold in Australian Stores...
