Variation of Spaghetti and Meatballs

Im not really that big on tomato and a little bored with eating the same meat sauce that is made with tomato so i made my own up.

What i did was get a mixture of vegetables baked them after spraying with oil, the vegetables i used this time was
  • mushroom
  • carrot
  • zucchini
  • celery
  • onion
  • capsicum

Once the vegetables where cooked in the oven i blended them down adding some herbs and parmesan cheese, most of the items i used had been already in my house

Next i made my meatballs, and well im not really that big on the taste of meat either, years ago i learnt a trick which made the Meatballs really yummy and moist.

I use a can of baked beans

Sure it may sound really funny but once to blend them down they turn into a paste and in the meatballs i dont think you can really work out what the taste is.

Next i baked the meatballs and mixed them with the pasta and sauce i had made.

Turned out pretty good i think

White Ribbon Day

Today is White Ribbon Day a day, White Ribbon Campaign started in Canada and became an annual awareness-raising event held between 25 November and 6 December.

The day was started as a man on the afternoon of 6 December 1989, walked into the Ecole Polytechnique University in Montreal and massacred 14 of his female classmates. His actions traumatised a nation and brought the issue of violence against women to the forefront of our collective consciousness.

In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, with a white ribbon as its iconic symbol.

White Ribbon began in Australia in 2003 as part of UNIFEM (now UN Women).

Today i went to an event that looked at all the different facets that can cause men to be violent to women from drinking, drugs, gambling, being angry and other reasons, we had a barbecue, local choir, local musician, balloons for children, how it isint the womens fault for the violence, where to look for help if violence is around and things like that. Was a pity it was raining but luckily we where able to have the event inside.

Received in the mail today a letter stating i have some money sitting in a bank account, i do know i have some money sitting in a bank account and when i get the chance to get it i will.

First of what happens in Australia is that there is a site that you can check to see if there is any money you have forgotten about, it is run by A.S.I.C

What i found funny about the letter is that it starts of with this person is a 68 year old pensioner trying to obtain some extra money
  • If you are on a pension to make extra money why are you posting out mail which will cost you money

LinkIt goes on further that i dont need to give his name to ASIC, and that is just a note to tell me the money is there.

  • Why is it illegal what you are doing sending me this letter?

Of course i then looked to see what they are going to charge me to get my money, as previously i had received letters like this and they had taken $200.00.

He has written that if i successfully recover the money then maybe i could show my gratitude by sending him a small payment, a gift voucher or money order

  • So he wants money, if i dont which i wont isint he out of money so how is he making money?

Sounds quite silly to me, maybe he will get a gullible person but who knows?

Speaking my mind

When I'm talking to people on the internet i often hide part of myself as I don't think people really want to know everything and some of what i know.

I have been chatting to a few people for awhile now who of course use the line "Be Yourself" you don't need to hide anything, i do warn people and say well what i know may not be to your liking and I'm not exactly sure you want me to be myself. But they so no go for it.

So of course i fall for that line after awhile and let my full self start to emerge.

Bad idea, as most of the time when I do people seem to be shocked with how most things don't bother me, like you can tell me really rude stuff and most of the time I just don't care, it just doesn't bother me and I'm very blasé about it.

Why I'm like this is at one stage I was doing a certain job (which I wont say) i heard and saw quite alot of stuff and now it takes loads for me to be shocked.

My question is why do people say to you "Be Yourself" when they seem to have trouble with it.

To me fire is really interesting to watch it seems to come from nothing to produce different colours from different types of materials used. Im not exactly sure how the flame part is made reading up on it i thought i would share it

The first part i wanted to know about was how is the flame made well this is how it is made:

The flame is the visible portion of any fire and consists of glowing hot gases- what happens is the carbon atoms rise (as well as atoms of other material) emit light. This "heat produces light" effect is called incandescence, and it is the same kind of thing that creates light in a light bulb. It is what causes the visible flame.

For fire to work it needs three things heat, fuel, and oxygen.

On Earth, gravity determines how the flame burns. All the hot gases in the flame are much hotter (and less dense) than the surrounding air, so they move upward toward lower pressure. This is why fire typically spreads upward, and it's also why flames are always "pointed" at the top.

The flames also come in different colours depending on where it is typically, the hottest part of a flame -- the base -- glows blue, and the cooler parts at the top glow orange or yellow. In addition to emitting light, the rising carbon particles may collect on surrounding surfaces as soot.

To get smoke some of the decomposed material is released as volatile gases. Smoke is compounds of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen.
