Elderly woman, police dog hurt after break-ins

A POLICE dog was injured and an elderly woman hospitalised following two burglaries south of Perth this morning.

A 76-year-old woman was confronted by three dark skinned males who forced entry into her home at 12.20am in Mensa Close, Rockingham.

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/west...-1226563011811

Give me a break, how can we as honest minded -people help the police if we can't get a good ID of the people involved. for all that i know they could have been Africans, Indians or dare i say even Indigenous Australians -
Happy Australia day
Ed

Jump starter as dual battery set-up

I just picked up a jump starter- cause it was cheap - and had to use it on the way home ( father in laws car), so money well spent! From good old Chinese distribution warehouse - Dick Smith

Got me thinking on running it as dual battery for the car fridge. It can be charged from the car via cigarette lighter, and fridge has built in low voltage cut off. Weaco 40 litre

Can the jump starter stay on 12 v charge whilst fridge is plugged in? So the jump battery acts as a surge tank between charging?

I know the battery is not deep cycle and made more for high amps over short time, listed as 600A.

Cheers

Rob

Plunger needs to sit for four minutes no longer. Fresh beans are a must, but I found the coffee I like the best is Monjava columbian and I get it from Coles, not as fresh as I would like but still get a pretty good brew and prefer it over fresh beans I've gotten from a roaster.

At the end of the day if your on the road and suffering instant coffee, stale beans badly ground and made into coffee any way possible is still better. There's always the old cowboy way of throwing them in the billy and letting it steep.

Hi CnB, the Bezzera certainly is a beautiful machine and will serve you well. Not sure if they still do it, but the importer offered 50% buyback if you upgraded to a new model down the track. I bought my stainless stovetop some years ago now in a a kitchenwares only shop, well before online was popular.

I am fortunate as I roast, so always have fresh beans on hand. I used to take all the kit away with me, however it took up a bit of space in the saddle bag (mainly from keeping the gear protected in bags/cases etc). Now I don't bother most of the time. Besides I was always the last one to have a cup, after brewing for everyone else. I can't stand instant, so will go without, though I don't mind the coffee bags you can buy, but need to use two.

If you've never tried an 'aeropress', you should see if you can get hold of one. I was impressed at just how smooth a cup it can produce, all else being equal etc.

In the end, the best coffee is the one you enjoy drinking. A mate loves nothing else than 'International master roast' or 'road dust' as he calls it. But it must be the worst coffee I have ever tasted

I had no idea any of these still existed...
I just filled up at a servo that's still actually a service station!
Yeah that's right, overalls clad old mate comes out and fills up the ute for me, rag in hand.
Enter the shop and its not the usual barrage of shiny impulse buy items, just a bench, coke fridge and an assortment of oils, filters, fan belts and radiator caps.
You may be thinking its in some sleepy country town, but no.
It's in the western Sydney suburb of Toongabbie!
