Recipes using kangaroo meat

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.

On-line government services, utilities, associations, and news:

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.

  1. Links to general non-region specific web-sites, the best example being the dog disease web-site: dogs are the same the world over.
  2. Links to jurisdictional web-sites, that is for states, and countries. This demonstrates how a simple HTML table can model political boundaries, you don't need a geographical information system.
  3. Using a similar model, show the links for automatic weather stations near metropolitan beaches, again using the efficient HTML tables, while still conveying the geographic context.
  4. Then at the most intimate scale, the locality based information services such as newspapers, internet television, and GPS correction service (CORS); which are activated by cookies recording your location as specified by postcode in the Internet browser.

    What is smart about the Metropolitan Waters table

    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:

    [the Bureau of Meteorology, Commonwealth of Australia emblem]

    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:

    1. favorite icons for the websites of disability service providers, including vehicle agencies and sites of interest
    2. favorite icons for the websites of secure storage providers
    3. flags used for rally points (especially includng community libraries) for an emergency
    4. marking out the Great Central Geotrail with the 🏰 symbol

    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

    1. Eyre Peninsula (0.3 people/km2) or Murray Mallee (0.4 people/km2)
    2. Yorke Peninsula
    3. Fleurieu Pensinsula
    4. Adelaide Metropolitan Region / Greater Adelaide (400 people/km2)
    5. Adelaide (1400 people/km2)

    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:

    News available on the Internet

    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.

    services by government

    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 href="./service.html#IN" or search the service.html file in a text editor specifying the code as the couplet id="IN". The government listing in the HTML dropdowns may include:

    This tale differs from the montage on the Heritage page which deals with museums and departments for culture. This montage is oriented at ninety degrees to that one, giving an aternative layout, but using the same minimum of one straight line per common border. A few of the jurisdictions are examined in the defeasibility matrix of the Legal page of the Geoscience Gateway. It is also a chaceto work over issues related to safety and environmental management with a focus on geotourism:

    A guide to Project Parare for the #greynomad
    I am thinking of an article like MAGNETIC FIELD: Look-List-Live a plea for a Dial-Before-You-Dig service for fallen or low hanging overhead utility wires

    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:

    The new website for emergencies from the South Australian government, Alert SA asks that:

    Staying Informed

    When staying informed of hazards, never rely on one source of information, as sometimes technology can fail during an emergency. … Other channels to use during the bushfire season include:

    • Visiting www.cfs.sa.gov.au …
    • Listening to a battery powered radio
    • Talking to friends, family and neighbours
    Slide 22 EGICS Plan of Activity
    Activity - 8 examples

    The Alert SA website, omits any mention of telecommunications (apart from failing as above). There should be relevant entries in the:

    • Essential Services Disruptions panel (at least for excavated cables, fallen lines and towers).
    • Terrorism panel for cybercrime either the Telecommunications Obmudsmen (recommended by PoliceLink) or preferably the ACMA/AFP/ADF team.
