Good News Thread
 
Probably won't be needed much

“Crawling under shelves, running out of the store, screaming, running, and yelling are our “norm” when we visits the supermarket. Behaviours that are his way of communicating ‘I can’t cope’. Today, these were obsolete,” Dive wrote.

“We spent 40 mins in the store, casually walking up and down each aisle selecting the items that we needed. The entire time we were in there, I was fighting back the tears. Today was a milestone for us. We filled a trolley!!!”

I hope it lasts, it sounds really good.

I won't bore you with the details, but years ago we brought in some gov't recommended environment consultants to the day care to advise us on making our limited space work for 90 children. The changes were relatively simple, but the results were immediate and very positive.

Why won't it be needed much? This thread? or That store's quiet hour?

ETA: Did you ever legitimately graduate high school elementary school English?

The real good news is that Jesus is coming back soon.

True fact.

He heard you were having a celebration in honour of your penis and he wanted to join in. Amirite?

Middle aged bris is a major commitment :nod:

MondoVman 20th August 2017 12:45 AM

Yay. Turns out the mild cheddar identically packaged as the medium cheddar
excepting the word "Medium" tastes Ok. Bought two 2 lb solids, one
mild, one medium, but intended both to be medium.

Heh, I recently accidentally bought 3 packages of imitation cheese by mistake. It tasted ok (I guess) but didn't melt worth a shit which tipped me off that it was fake. "Fancy Shredded Cheddar Style Shreds". It actually has some dairy in it, so I couldn't even dump it off on my vegan ex-wife.

pls Australia never go down the US' food path

borealis 20th August 2017 03:35 AM

I've seen similar products in my grocery store. They show up in the dairy case, eventually go on sale and afaict the store ends up throwing most of them out. I think this is one of the whey protein containing products the US has been agitating to flood Canadian markets with, described as 'pizza cheese'.

Mr. b actually picked up a cheap version of 'mozzarella' in town, in block form, labelled as 'pizza cheese'. I did use it on a pizza and while it melted okay, it was very plasticky and when cool had a very unpleasant texture.

OmicronPersei8 20th August 2017 04:35 AM

I've never see a pizza cheese

Processed pizza cheeses

Quote:

An example of a processed pizza cheese is Provel, which uses Cheddar, Swiss, and Provolone cheeses as flavorants.[30] Some analogue types are made with casein, a by-product of milk, and vegetable oil, rather than milk fat.[31] Casein-based Mozzarella-like imitation processed cheeses prepared using rennet are also used as a Mozzarella substitute on frozen pizzas

Nonono, "Jesus" is the nickname that Jerome has given to his penis.

borealis 20th August 2017 04:09 PM

That would explain a lot of Jerome's posts.

An old blue heeler named Max remained by the side of a three-year-old girl and led searchers to her after she spent more than 15 hours lost in rugged bushland on Queensland's Southern Downs overnight.

Aurora was reported missing about 3:00pm yesterday after she wandered off on her own, but a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property in wet weather last night found no trace of her.

This morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search and found the girl safe and well with Max the dog at 8:00am.

Kelly Benston, the partner of Leisa Marie Bennett, who is Aurora's grandmother, said Ms Bennett and other searchers heard the little girl faintly from the top of a mountain this morning.

"She found the dog first. Max led her to Aurora," Mr Benston said.

"Max is 17 years old, deaf and partially blind."

Good dog.

oblivion 21st April 2018 06:25 PM

Is that typical blue heeler eye shape?

MondoVman 21st April 2018 06:37 PM

... for a 17 year old dog.

Chatted with a buddy from high school at a mixer two evenings ago.
He has a slightly misshaped eye due to age, but both eyes are surgically cataract free.
We're roughly 9 in dog years and likely won't see this side of 17
(~119 human years).

borealis 21st April 2018 06:52 PM

Agree with mondo. Very old dogs sometimes have sagging eyelids, just like old humans.

oblivion 21st April 2018 06:57 PM

I'm curious because my now-deceased lab mix was thought to have some heeler in her family tree. The almond eye shape reminds me of her.

It could be a bull terrier thing.

good for the dog but i think we can all agree that choosing to bring up a kid in such a dangerous country is tantamount to child abuse

I'm not sure we can all agree.
After your invasions of roman, france and germany you have finally realised europe is too dangerous for Britain.

You can't get much further away from your traditional enemies than Australia.:shrug:
