Re: STABBE

Hi!
    Thank you for your comforting 'celtic origin' information. I feel tons better!
    Thank you, too,  for putting me on to your Rosewall Hill...apart from being the surname of a famous Aussie tennis player (Ken), it was absolutely hilarious! I've never read anything on the gene sites like it. I just had to file it. Oooh, yerv got loovy! legs!
    What verandah in the evening...in the evening I'm in the darned kitchen preparing a meal for The War Lord, but I do drink...Aussie Vino in fact, it helps me through the cooking chores.
    Tasmanian Devils: They look cute, but they stink, their teeth are razor sharp, they live on carrion, eat their young when carrion isn't available  and scream horribly while they eat and fight over food. The poor creatures may be wiped out because they have a disease of some sort. They've been called Tassie Devils' for yonks, but Disney made a children's US TV series 'Tassie Devils' and the company have bought the rights to the name! We, even in Tasmania, are not supposed to use it without permission. Howzat? But we do use it...to hell with Disney. Wonder what's next...Waltzing Matilda? 
    Ta ta and thanks for your help.

Glad you liked it. Being such a small burg there is only so much you can write about St. Ives so it is always nice to get some positive feedback from a 'newbie'. Generally I get correspondence from the small (but demented) fanbase who have, of course, seen the site many times.
 
My legs are available for weddings, bar-mitzvahs, barbies, etc. at very reasonable rates!
 
All the best cooking is done using wine. Some times, if you are feeling adventurous, you can even put it in the food.
 
Yes, I've seen the Taz cartoon on the TV. Somehow I didn't think they'd quite got the faunalogical details right. I wouldn't worry about them becoming an endangered species, though. From your description "they stink, their teeth are razor sharp, they live on carrion, eat their young when carrion isn't available  and scream horribly while they eat and fight over food" I'd say we've got tens of thousands of them over here. We call them tourists!
 
PS. I bet if the Yanks did get their hooks into WM the end product would be a heart-warming story where the sheep is rescued by Animal Welfare Officers, the swagman sees the error of his ways and is rehabilitated into society, the Billabong is declared a protected nature reserve, the Coolibah Tree wins first prize at the World Flower Show and the police all get medals and promotions!
