One of the biggest trains in Australia’s history helping in the drought…


People in the city don’t realise how serious this is. Maybe when you don’t have food you might pay attention. I guess you’ll just import it after all you live in a city and it is just there isn’t  …


Bear disturbing

You don’t know do you? You live in a city you have paved roads and services everything is organised.

Sorry to disappoint you are not thinking of Australia.

What you forget is that it is that rural is the engine room of Aussie. You will not enjoy the life you lead if didn’t exist. Spare a thought?

Chocolate Lovers Cake …




2 x 600g IGA Chocolate Mud Cake
2L tub chocolate ice-cream
150g milk chocolate
150g caramel popcorn


  1. Place the first mud cake on a plate.
  2. Top with a layer of chocolate ice-cream and add the second mud cake on top.
  3. Working quickly, cover with the rest of the ice-cream, using a spatula to smooth as you go.
  4. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
  5. Just before serving, break the chocolate into pieces and melt in the microwave, stirring it every 30 seconds until nice and smooth.
  6. Move your cake from the freezer to a cake stand, spoon the melted chocolate over the top of the cake, allowing it to drip down the sides (it will set fast against the ice-cream).
  7. Working quickly, decorate with caramel popcorn.
  8. Serve immediately.

Hope you enjoy even Bear can cook this for Christmas

Aussie slang …

Don’t you just love Aussies

Do you understand us?

Bear’s hamburgers …


Bear is experimenting cooking tonight but he is not much of a cook. My creation looks pretty good but I think too much lettuce and possibly not enough cheese? …

Too much lettuce

Bear is looking for advice as I said not much of a cook.

Actually I am joking this is a Aussie Burger …

Australia remember when …


“Remember playing cricket out in the street or in the laneways with all the other neighbourhood kids back in the day?
Never had a set of stumps so we’d just paint the stumps on to an old 44 gallon drum and the bat had probably seen better days. No cricket ball but the good old tennis ball was just as good.
We’d play outside right up until the street lights started coming on and that was the time to call “stumps” and go inside for tea.”

via – Australia remember when

My Dad would come out with the strap in his hand at 5pm we always had “tea” at that time. All the kids would scatter home.

Bear has a good laugh every time there is an election politicians try to get votes by promising more money for “resources” for schools. Well guys these are the resources we had it was just the desire to learn and the total love of cricket. LOL 🙂

Funny how we made Australia a great place to live without all the “resources”. We had nothing.

I am, you are, we are Australian …

Best wishes to all Aussies from Bear. I thought this poem will explain what it is to be an Aussie.

I came from the dream-time,
From the dusty red-soil plains.
I am the ancient heart,
The keeper of the flame.
I stood upon the rocky shores,
I watched the tall ships come,
For forty thousand years I’ve been
The first Australian.
I came upon the prison ship,
Bowed down by iron chains,
I fought the land, endured the lash,
And waited for the rains.
I’m a settler, I’m a farmer’s wife
On a dry and barren run,
A convict, then a free man,
I became Australian.
I’m the daughter of a digger
Who sought the mother lode.
The girl became a woman
On the long and dusty road.
I’m a child of the Depression,
I saw the good times come,
I’m a bushie, I’m a battler,
I am Australian.
We are one, but we are many,
And from all the lands on earth we come.
We’ll share a dream and sing with one voice,
“I am, you are, we are Australian”
I’m a teller of stories,
I’m a singer of songs,
I am Albert Namatjira
And I paint the ghostly gums.
I’m Clancy on his horse,
I’m Ned Kelly on the run,
I’m the one who waltzed Matilda,
I am Australian.
I’m the hot wind from the desert,
I’m the black soil of the plains,
I’m the mountains and the valleys,
I’m the drought and flooding rains.
I am the rock, I am the sky,
The rivers when they run,
The spirit of this great land,
I am Australian.
We are one, but we are many,
And from all the lands on earth we come.
We’ll share a dream and sing with one voice,
“I am, you are, we are Australian.”
“I am, you are, we are Australian.”
