    Welcome on board, Erik. Hope that you find the board enlightening. Don't be afraid to jump in and just start typing. Everyone here is a little crazy, but there is such a wealth of knowledge and info available that this site has become a great resource. No one here bites, but they'll give you the gumming of your life!

    Welcome to the Booth Eric! I bite... but as has been discussed in the past I prefer small cute furry animals... preferably marinated, grilled and served with a sweet fruity glaze. Although as Charlie pointed out... I'm a big fan of fingers with a ginger soy marinade.

    Have never tried wombat, but when we were Down Under, we had some fabulous sweet and sour crocodile and some not-so-great kangaroo jerky (a little too earthy for my tastes). Still anything is better than sea urchin - not even ginger soy sauce with red pepper flakes could help that!

    So, Erik with a K - what's your next show?

    Why, your home city, of course, and the 'other place' (Sydney). Also spent a lot of time in Tasmania - now that's a beautiful country. I'd live there in a heart beat.

    No, it's not all bush - especially after all those fires. That's okay, folks still think we have tumbleweeds drifting down our street and the Indians (excuse me, Native Americans) ride down the streets and threaten our women folk. people are funny!

    That makes me laugh. I've had similar happen, gotten in a bar fight cause my friend wore a cowboy hat and didn't ride bulls, been asked more times than I can count if I rode a horse to school (yes I CAN count higher than ten, even with my shoes on), and best of all been told that my home state was a government conspiracy because of it's large size (number 9 largest I believe) and low population (~600k people).

    You mean you don't believe that? But I read all about it in the Weekly World News. It was just below the article about how Hitler, JFK, and Elvis are alive and hiding in a private Argentine resort run by aliens. They had some Sweet pictures!
