ABS document smears Tigers supporters as NO voters in Australian marriage survey Plebiscite

#marriageequality #voteyes #voteno #skyisnotfalling #humanrights #gotigers #AFL #football #aussierules

I was reading though the ABS results and documentation this morning, and was shocked to find that a coding rules document on the ABS website related to the Australian Gay marriage survey smeared tigers supporters as NO voters.

This raises some serious questions about the motivations of the ABS team that wrote this!!

Either way, I found this little clip quite amusing!

Realistically though, this document just points out this vote is still valid… regardless of which football or sports team you are affiliated with.. or if you just like tigers in particular.

Check out the document on the ABS website!

Turret Cafe Ballarat Revisited

It was celebration time for us, and by now as you may have figured from the last few months of posts, our go-to place to treat ourselves to a sumptuous lunch after achieving a big win was the Turret Cafe Ballarat on Sturt Street.

Hopefully readers aren’t getting bored of this! I assure you, they don’t pay us for these- we just like going there! Why? probably the relaxed atmosphere.

It’s a bustling, slightly noisy space, but it has a great look, feel and smell to it. That, and it’s on the right part of strut street, where free parking can be found only half a block away, rather than have to worry about overstaying a ripoff voucher meter further into town.

Treat # was the grilled Saganaki cheese on turkish bread with onion, basil and tomato.

Yeah, it looks small, doesn’t it? But good things come in satisfying sized packages, and this is no exception.

For a small price of $16.50… its pretty decent value for a deceptively simple, but very well prepared and balanced treat.

Treat #2 consisted of the Prawn, Chorizo & Chilli Linguine.

Don’t be fooled by the picture- it’s a LOT bigger than it looks and is a very generous serve that left more than enough for both myself, and the lass who stole quite a bit off my plate at every opportunity. I should also mention that the prawns in this are BIG and numerous too!

For a restaurant that is best described as modern Australian or fusion and not an Italian specialist.. they got the pasta just right! fresh cooked, and not soggy or sloppy.

WP_20171004_14_02_40_ProThere isn’t much left on the menu we have not tried yet which isn’t a breakfast item.

Just the lamb back strap, and some of the more exotic salads. Till next time!
