People are generally pathetic. There will be loads of complaints if you don't change it. I can't even believe it is a point of issue, but...

Posted in: What do you think David Bowie's musical legacy will be? See in context

It's not only the music... It's the person who was that will live on! Unfortunately, he'll be morphed into something bigger than he was. if you were a real fan of his, he will live on forever with you. If you weren't, you'll move on to something that you like! All comments prior, support just that! RIP

I have an extensive work history in restaurants. I have been living and working in Japan for 15 years, navigating my way through the workplace and relevant culture (s). I have upper level Japanese language skills. And, I am available for work as the champion of Australian produce, marketing and promoting our incredible food ideas throughout Japan. Call me, Australia! I eagerly await your reply...

Posted in: Should bar owners who serve alcohol to customers, knowing they are driving, be liable for prosecution if the customer is involved in a traffic accident? Also, should passengers in cars driven by drunk See in context

No! People are responsible for themselves. people need to make better choices... I worked in the industry for many years, and I didn't have time to check on how much people are drinking. NO WAY!!

It might be nice to see JA take a bit a of a hit.... Farmers need to have the autonomy to make decisions about their lively hood, not a political party!

Posted in: Full plate for Meat & Livestock Australia See in context

I believe you guys are doing a great job! What I would like to see, however, is more variety in regards to region of origin, for example, where was this particular beef raised; the Riverina area or King island? What was it raised in? How was it processed, etc? Also, we have an amazing variety of by-products within connected industries, such as cheese and cream, that need to be brought into and promoted in Japan. Considering transport and expiration, surely there is a way to meet these challenges. We have one of the most diverse meet industries in the world! Keep working hard and thanks for your efforts so far! More chefs showcasing what can be done with our products could also possibly help! I am available and have a history in chef work. Call me...

Posted in: World chefs: Jamie Bissonnette shares tips on making cured meats See in context

Unfortunately a lot of the ingredients are hard to get in Japan. We need to get them on line, along with their delivery price tags... If anyone does know where we can get most of the salts and sugars locally, it would be much appreciated information. Cheers

Posted in: World chefs: Fedoras share tips on food-beer pairings in new cookbook See in context

I love the idea! I have been doing something similar at home for the past three years. I also look at the profile of the beer and match it to cooking methods... I never thought of making a business out of it, though! Would love to see the book for a different perspective, but just can't afford it right now. More power to you guys

Posted in: Portuguese man-of-war spotted on Kanagawa beach See in context

Tenderizer, urine, and vinegar do nothing for this. I have been stung countless times, as I am a beach bum from Sydney. The worst was when a tentacle wrapped around my arm and I went into anaphylactic shock!! I walked to the chemist who immediately tore open a packet of something and told me to drink it to prevent a heart attack. I had welts and bruises on my arm for about two weeks. Admittedly this was a particular nasty sting but DON'T play around with this. If stung, try to get to a hospital. This may be over reacting but it's better to be safe than sorry. Peace!

Posted in: Ken Watanabe to make Broadway debut in 'The King and I' See in context

When i saw the title, i let out a gasp (i'm on the train). He will nail this! Absolutely own it! If ever there was a role made for someone, this is it... Forget history. Think about his amazing acting skills.

Mr. Watsnabe, this is YOUR role. I only wish I could see it
