Bendigocuesports.com Alternative Website

Being a good friend of the guys over at Bendigo Web Design, I am often asked to review and spell check their new websites before going live. I was very interested in their alternative design for the bendigocuesports.com, which I am led to believe took all of a weekend to build.

The bendigocuesports website proper has taken a staggering number of months (more than a year, if I am not mistaken) and is still strewn with broken links, missing data and errors, not to mention a God-awful design and terrible navigation.

I am also led to believe that the alt.bendigocuesports.com was to be offered at a gold coin donation before the Bendigo Eightball Association president relinquished his post. No doubt the current website was paid for from team fees…..what a waste.

Anyway, having been given the opportunity to review it, I have to say that it looks more like a website I would like representing the associations than the current version.

Review each site yourself below. Bear in mind the alt version is a demonstration of design and not up to date, while the proper version is meant to be complete and working.

The guys over at Bendigo Web Design are on the hunt for a pool table. Check out there article…

I am looking for a slate bed pool table in exchange for a website. If you have one but need a website more, this could be your lucky day!

If you have 7ft x 3.6ft slate bed pool table and are looking to move it on, I am willing to offer you a cutting edge, professional, feature-packed content management system based website which includes one year’s free domain name registration and one year’s free Aussie hosting, all to the value of $1699 and this even includes my legendary maintenance, technical support and the extra mile as standard.

I would also be willing to add extra value by including additional features, should the table merit.

For an idea of what you can expect, please visit the Bendigo Web Design portfolio.

The table must comprise a single piece slate bed and may be either a coin-op pub style or the more traditional home style. The felt needs to still have a generous amount of life in it with no tears or stains. The feet should be height adjustable and the overall condition should be very good; reasonable wear and tear accepted.

I am happy to arrange pickup.

Soy Sauce Eggs Recipe (Shoyu Tamago)

These are as simple as George W Bush to prepare but can make a boring leafy salad interesting and gives the kids something to talk about at school over lunch.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

4 hard boiled eggs
5 tablespoons tamari soy sauce

Method:

1. Pour the soy sauce into a pan that is approximately 10 inches in diameter. Heat the soy sauce of medium-high heat. When the soy sauce starts foaming up, reduce the heat to medium heat and carefully add the eggs. Roll the eggs around in the soy sauce to coat them, and continue rolling them around the pan until the eggs are a dark mohagony color and the soy sauce has been reduced to a thick sludge.

2. Remove the eggs, letting any extra soy sauce drain off, and place on a plate to cool.

3. When the eggs have cooled completely, pack them into lunches or enjoy one as a snack. Just don’t leave them near my daughter, or else you’ll never get to have a bite!

 

Nepalese Pork Mince Curry

nepalese-pork-mince-curryHere’s my take on what is considered a Nepalese curry. Although other pork mince-based recipes found on the Net refer to a dry and fragrant dish, I needed mine to go a bit further using what I had.

The result is still a fragrant but subtle curry which relies heavily on the use of fresh coriander and is as wet as a weekend in Wales.

 

 

 Ingredients

2 tbsp oil (peanut? I used olive oil)
1 tbsp yellow mustard powder
2 onions diced
1 celery stalk finely chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp coriander minced
3 large cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
500g pork mince
1 cup chicken stock (closer to 2 by the time I finished)
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tin cannellini beans (or substitute with green beans)
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup fresh coriander leaves rough chopped
1 tbsp flour (optional)

Method

Chop the onion and celery and toss into the heated pan with olive oil. You could substitute with peanut oil or even ghee. Gently fry until the onion begins to soften and then add the garlic.

Add the mustard, cumin, turmeric and garam masala along with the minced ginger and cook for another couple of minutes.

Add the mince and continue stirring until browned.

At this point I added the minced coriander but if you are not a fan, leave this out.

Add the stock and mix thoroughly.

Add the cannellini beans and let it simmer gently for 20 minutes before adding the freshly chopped coriander and season as desired. If you prefer, use fresh green beans instead; they add great colour to the dish. It’s at this point you may want to add a little flour to help thicken it up a bit.

Serve alone with fresh green beans or with wholegrain rice. Try wheat instead of rice for something different. Just because I can, I’m serving with boiled potatoes tossed in butter and a little white pepper.

Enjoy!
