    I love the bit about substituting things in recipes. Me, too.

  3. I like reality TV too! Curious...what kinds of Australian reality TV shows do they have? What's your favorite?

    1. On cable we have your X Factor and Americas Got Talent etc. We also have our own versions. We just finished Big Brother. We have a show called The Block. They throw a bunch of people in houses and have them renovate them. I like the cooking ones too. Not big on the model shows though.

      I have to say though I’m a sucker for Dance Moms and Dance Mom’s Miami. You have to love to hate those people lol

  4. You had me at Cruella de Vil. Loved the responses. Nice getting to know another respected author. As per the reality TV, I'm still waiting for "Spank the Politician" !

  5. Thanks Joseph. WE could do with our version of ‘Spank the Politician' here as well lol.

  6. I watch DOOL when I can, I do the same thing with recipes, am also easily distracted, and I've mowed the lawn once in my life! LOL It was great learning more about you. :)
