Feed a familly for less

Grab a slow cooker---if you don't want to buy a new one, get one on Trade Me or an OP shop.
Buy some bacon bones, really cheap at butcher, chuck in some split peas (yellow or green from bulk bins at supermarket---Throw in any left over veggeis and fill up the slow cooker with the above ingredients. Cook for ages (10 hours with old style crock-pot, less for slow cookers) and take out the bones as the meat falls off the bones.
Now go and make some old fashioned scones or buy left over french sticks from bakery.

Cheap as.

I turned Perdy into a book--'Talk To Me.' It could also be Danny Watson.

I must be getting old, because I am addicted to listening to talk back radio. Along with another little bundle of hair in my life, Perdy, I decided to turn them into a book. Well, not really them, but Perdy’s influence is huge.
The book is called ‘Talk To Me,’ and it is my third book. (Coastal Yarns and Roskill are the first two) The book is a tongue-in-cheek, take the piss swipe at my addiction. Things go terrible wrong for Gary, the talk back host of a struggling radio station.
When a caller claims he is the killer of a body found in a Bay, things hot up and it’s not long before the airwaves are hot with threats and absolute bullshit.
If you want to know more, then go to www.authorneilcoleman.com and buy my book, once it is released any day now.
Happy reading. Don't worry Danny---it's not really you or Kerry---it's just a bit of fun. I'll send you both a copy, via Mike.  LOL---When's he getting his own show?

I heard a song on ZB talk back today that made me cringe

Yes, it’s true. The words were primarily: ‘McDonalds, McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut,’ over and over. At first I thought it was an advert, but it went on and on---far longer than an advert. I was forced to accept that what I was hearing was in fact a song.
Hell, hell and bloody hell. What is music coming to? Can’t you hear kids singing this song, further propelling them into the fast food world, putting more pressure on their parents, making these three products even more acceptable as a majority part of our diets?
I could go on for ages and tell you what you already know. I shall finish with the obvious---Why did McDonalds get two mentions to every one for the other two? ---most unfair if you ask me.
What a load of twaddle. What’s next? ------Try and make some up.
