Just select the text of the meal you like and then copy and paste into your own recipe book (Don't forget to acknowledge this site). My latest best thing is based on David Irving's marinade of one teaspoon each of chopped chilli, crushed garlic and crushed ginger in olive oil - I cut the slices of the kangaroo topside very finely (like strogonoff you do it when it is slighlty thawed) then after several hours of marinading I concertina the slices onto bamboo skewers and stir fry it, just dark browning the edges where they touch the pan. Boil a one-minute noodle block, keeping it as a block, drain in a slotted spoon and place it on the plate, top with slightly browned leek, put the skewer on top, dribble on hot chinese honey chicken sauce or similar, and dress with sesame seed (to add in the calcium) and roughly-chopped coriander. Once again I am trying to get the nutty flavour of charcoaled kangaroo but maintain the tenderness - and I think I do it, I am ready for the Iron Chef kangaroo challenge with this one.
And if you are wondering Why use kangaroo? see the FAQs.
This section has links to sites about natural hazards and public safety. While it includes things like police, fire brigades I have gone away from the normal beakdown by department but rather concentrated on location-specific approaches.
I did have weather maps shown here but the Bureau of Meteorology would like to control how these images are shown. Please see the copyright notice from the Commonwealth of Australia. However, I am still free to link as I wish, provided I give a prominent link to the Bureau's home page. I have made links to the automatic weather stations so you can get the measurements. And here is that 'prominent' link to the home page:
Initially I was only using the figure for monitoring the afternoon breeze for windsurfing. Later I needed lists of hospitals when my father was being moved around. Later on I needed lists of storage facilities for the windsurfer parts and family heirlooms. So these other features have grown organically and include:
The diagram reminds me of:
As well as the Adelaide metropolitan area represented as a cluster rather than a bounded line, other geographically precise indications of population density are evident in this logarithmic order
I have used SVG images for WikiMedia for the flags of any organisations that could provide rally points in an emergency. These are taken from the Flags of ... series from WikiMedia where there is usally discussion of the graphical elements, copyright notice and the history. As these generally have official status, they are placed either at the centre of a cluster, or right of a row of icons, as for the protocol for the Australian Flag. So far I have used:
The web sites in this section are for schedules of different types and for monitoring disasters, hazards and pests. Where possible with broadcasts, to save my time when connecting, I have linked directly to the Windows Media player livefeed. Alternatively, if you supply your GPS readings to the web pages like SydNet you can then receive coordinates corrected from reference to the differential corrections for local permanent GPS network. These are all modern forms of the printed time table, and even these have been updated for the Internet. This includes all kinds of broadcasts with television schedules, internet service providers, on-line newspapers, academic journal delivery services, and differential correction networks for GPS. Most recently, with so many geoscientists underutilised, I have adventures with Internet service, including cargo cruises, geological society cruising, satellite internet for ships, singles cruising, and cruises of particular geological interest.
This is a geographical montage of sovereign states (codes from ISO 3166), links to the services they provide; and havens from natural hazards. Where I can in the HTML <table /> I use the codes for the id attribute of the <table /> element; allowing me to link to India with the attribute

The basis for this is an incident on the 18th December 2019 and reported the same week that Dr Williams (that is the retired Major Bob Williams of the Royal Army Survey Corp) wrote in disappointment at the damage caused by not having adopted his work for the Defence Science Technology Organsiation. The particular hazard is as found in the Dictionary of Geological Terms:
magnetic field … 2. The space about a conductor carrying an electric current in which, as it may be shown, magnetic force is also exerted.
This is a break down of the DSTO slide pack which gives the amelioration, with these labels resonating for the hazard:

A summary of Kim Beazley's call-to-arms in favour of local geospatial information. This was before the 1999 Invasion of Indonesia (East Timor) which showed the weakness of a continental information system based on non-geospatial databases. Wikipedia article INTERFET logistics repeats this quote:
the preferential allocation of resources to combat capabilities and the acceptance of risk in logistics functions brought the Army to the precipice of operational failure

There are a lot of digital gadgets now available, but I try to put here things that combine several uses, and reduce the amount of gear that has to be carried. These issues influence the selection here:
