Although we appreciate the thought behind the gift, not all gifts suit our taste, size or needs. We don't want to hurt the giver's feelings so we accept the gift graciously. What do we do with all these unwanted gifts we accumulate that only collect dust or get hidden away for months? In the 21st century, we regift. It's okay to regift, but there is an etiquette to it. If you do it for the right reasons, not simply to save money, it's perfectly acceptable.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, water, cornflour, salt and pepper until creamy.
Heat a medium non-stick pan and add ¼ of the Lemon & Lime Infused Oil and
butter. When the oil and butter is hot, pour in ¼ of the egg mixture. Move the
egg around so it covers the base of the pan. Lower the heat and cook until the
underside of the pancake is set and slightly coloured. Use a wide egg slice to
flip over. Cook the other side. Repeat with the other three portions of egg in the same way, to give you four even-sized pancakes. Cover to keep warm.

Mix together well in a bowl. Cover in the fridge for ½ hour. (That’s what we do in Australia.) (Yours could probably sit in the bowl in the snow.) Shape into balls and roll in coconut.

Everywhere you look nowadays things seem to be getting smaller. Credit card sized cameras that can hold 10 million photos and iPods the size of Zippos that could even hold all the Britney Spears albums. And don’t think that smaller means less because these little gadgets contain more toys than Harrods. Fashion says we need these mini status symbols to accompany our single shot espressos, handbag pooches and California sushi rolls. And it doesn’t stop there, car manufacturers have also jumped on the mini-wagon too. The roads today are awash with super-minis. Hardly a minute goes by without seeing one zip by you; advertising their proud owner’s Real Estate Agency.

Does the following story sound familiar to you? A true example is of an elderly couple I know (65 and 63 years of age). A number of years ago the husband took his wife into emergency because of chest pain and shortness of breath. Tests were performed and she was admitted to Prince Charles Hospital.

Well, in a word - No. Gout is a disease associated with decrepit old booze hounds decaying in exclusive gentlemen’s clubs for the well-bred (in-bred?). It is the disease of the alcoholic seafarer, yellow of eye and bad of breath, with leprosy and scurvy. And Pirates! Isn’t it?

Who would have thought the Springbok rugby emblem held in such high esteem and even awe in some countries would one day be under threat. Recently I met some rugby crazy Fijians and just the mention of the Springboks gets a tremendous response - respect and admiration.

Emergencies never happen when you expect them! It was just after 5pm on a Friday evening when Sydney the 10 month old kitten arrived at our clinic. His nervous, vacant stare and uncontrolled twitching immediately told me something was seriously wrong. Sue, his distraught owner was beside herself, and between sobs of tears she explained that a few hours before she had applied a spot on flea product intended for dogs. Fortunately she had brought a tube of it with her and I immediately identified it as a Permethrin based product, purchased at a supermarket. Unfortunately, whilst Permethrin is very safe to dogs, it is toxic to cats.

Summer is here and with it comes the warm weather. This warm weather brings all the favourite summer species on the bite. The time to dust off the trolling gear has finally arrived. Black marlin, mackerel, wahoo, mahi mahi and all the popular tuna species will be viable species when trolling the offshore reefs. The black marlin season is shaping up to be a good one with schools of bait already moving into its usual haunts. If you haven’t caught a black marlin yet, this could be the season to do it. Trolling a small spread of pushers at between five and eight knots is a good method of covering ground while looking for bait schools.

Childhood memories came flooding back on Saturday as we spent the day at Brisbane’s Royal Agricultural Show which is called the Ekka. Apart from the familiar smells of cow dung, one thing different at the ‘Ekka’ is an entire hall dedicated to the sale of ‘show bags’ which is effectively a lucky packet. There is a large area with rides and games called ‘Side Show Alley’ where the biggest thrill comes from surviving the spinning contraption mounted on a truck with some back yard engineering and the inevitable chance of human error by the operator who could frontline ZZ Top when he is not at the soup kitchen. Dinner was a cholesterol concoction from a makeshift canteen kitchen with everything on the menu coming out of a deep fryer using the previous years oil. The main arena presented a string of shows including a spectacular fireworks display concluded the evening’s events before we trudged back to the car exhausted from a fun filled day. Sunday was fairly uneventful apart from our hair raising experience when Bianca gave each of us a crew cut. Luckily the boys look alright but I could easily be mistaken for a poof at the Sydney Mardi-gras.
