Thoughts on dads, pol­lies and corned beef

Central and North Burnett Times - - WEEKEND -

WEEK­END read­ers had their own opin­ions about a num­ber of sto­ries in the mag­a­zine last Satur­day, leav­ing their com­ments on our web­site.

Daz­zat, of Sippy Downs, had this to say about Rowena Hardy’s col­umn on fa­thers as role mod­els: “Quote: ‘Ev­ery child ben­e­fits from hav­ing an in­ter­ac­tive re­la­tion­ship with a pos­i­tive and con­fi­dent male role model (not nec­es­sar­ily the fa­ther) who can demon­strate that it’s okay to be male and be gen­tle, car­ing and lov­ing as well as strong, ca­pa­ble and re­silient.’

“C’mon ... let’s just say it as it is. “Un­for­tu­nately, since the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion and the in­tro­duc­tion of no fault di­vorce, we are now in a so­ci­ety where hav­ing your own bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther around is no longer the norm.”

On the trend page, Pol­lie Tick­led colum­nist Michael Burlace urged vot­ers to pack their dou­ble dis­so­lu­tion sur­vival packs af­ter an­other tur­bu­lent week in Aussie pol­i­tics.

Mod­ern Per­son, of Bud­erim, replied: “You know how the debt col­lec­tors were set upon those naughty dole cheats who claimed amounts they were not en­ti­tled to ... I pre­sume the same debt col­lec­tors will be sent af­ter any ‘politi­cian’ who was not en­ti­tled to be there or get pay and ‘en­ti­tle­ments’?”

And Tonyh777, of Lis­more, made this com­ment: “If we are granted the op­por­tu­nity to re­move these clowns from power, please re­mem­ber how lit­tle the Lib­eral/La­bor par­ties have done for us over the last decade and vote for in­de­pen­dents who are there to im­prove the lives of our peo­ple and the coun­try as a whole, not for them­selves.”

And Do­minique Rizzo’s corned beef recipe gleaned from her grandma prompted these ex­tra tips from terry53 of Cooee Bay: “Was told from good au­thor­ity that best to pour boil­ing wa­ter over corned meat from start to seal in flavours, then also cook same for longer than re­quired time. Used pineap­ple skins once and quite im­pressed with that.”
