Lovely summer day today, even though it's not summer!

Post by Eleanor on Fri Oct 31, 2014 1:41 pm

22°C, with bright sunshine and a slight breeze! happy 57% humidity, but oh well.

And I was told just now that it's the hottest Halloween we've had on record! happy

Beautiful day!

I can't complain about the weather - it's like summer!

It's definitely a summer temperature for us! happy We get hotter, but 20-25°C is a comfortable, breezy summer day! love

Yep, trick or treating doesn't start until tonight. Thankfully, we won't be bothered by it! laughing

Weatherwise it's been a lovely day for the last day of October and made me feel glad to be alive! (Or as Tracy might say - "wouldn't be dead for quids"!)

If ALL autumn days were like this, I wouldn't mind autumn so much!

No trick or treaters at the door yet thank goodness although I've seen the scary little tots prowling the streets.

evil It certainly does!  angry That is a Paul Hogan ad saying for enticing international visitors. Perhaps yanks call prawns, shrimp?

We never say that, ever! & he bloody well knows it! My entire life i have never heard an aussie say that unless they are taking the p1ss out of a "visitor"after his ad. Prawns, cray's go on the bbq, crab or fish, but a shrimp is never chucked on a barbie! They only go in a wok for fried rice. rolling on floor rolling on floor rolling on floor

Sorry, but just ask any aussie here to light a bbq to cook shrimp. You won't hear.. no worries mate, you'll hear something else! covering eyes

Well, prawns are technically shrimp anyway, but yes, America calls them shrimp! laughing

And anybody who puts shrimp on barbecues is a nutter! shocked laughing

It's the same as, "Awight, guv'na?" over here. Nobody. Says. That. Anymore.

Or Americans referring to all English people as 'British' and refusing to accept that Great Britain is made up of four entirely different countries!

And assuming that we either speak Queen's English or Dick Van Dyke Cockney rhyming slang. God, that's annoying! laughing

And yes, we drink tea sometimes, but we don't live off the stuff! tongue

I can remember when you could buy shrimps here (by the pint). They were very small. Nowadays they are called "prawns" and what we called prawns in those days are now called giant prawns! "Jumbo prawns" are, I believe, from the Far East. Throw any on a barbie though and it would probably disappear through the bars!

I do love the phrase "wouldn't be dead for quids". If it's offensive though - sorreeee Tracy!

First pic - yep, them's shrimps. Available anywhere under the name of "prawns".

Second pic - shrimps again in the glass. Hanging on the glass is a prawn. Depending on the establishment it might be termed giant or jumbo, or even langoustine. All delicious, but the bigger the juicier! Yum yum!

Its daylight here now at 8pm & its only spring! happy

Have you got a doggie pool for zack for when he's hot? I find Tyson just sits in his when he's hot. Its only shallow but cools him.

P.s. your new avatar is lovely!
