Re: Ishimaru Pub

My mom uses to put cups of concentrate tomato and tomato juice instead of tomato sauce only.  I've never got it but it's like that and it's really good. smile The fact is ; I've never put it between two breads to eat it...  lol

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Skittles-
I have never understood that either why people add tomato sauce to spaghetti.... it just is weird IMHO, because it already has tomato in it...  :wink:  people don't tend to do that here.

maëlstrom_19- My mum used to really really annoy my brother when he was making spaghetti mince, as she would just plop a couple of carrots and broccoli in to make it healthy...  now that I think about it, I can't actually recall what my brother adds to it to make it tomato... perhaps he adds real tomatoes.. hmm... I never eat spaghetti much...

:oops:

The reason you have blurred vision from the support forum is you are stareing at the screen try to understand what people are saying.

Bad enough we got those french folks  :dev:  there but you have folks from other countries try to speak english but cant-not thier fault but it gets to be fustrating at times.

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Have any of you guys heard about this?

It's a miracle, pregnant man tells Oprah

A transgender man who is six months pregnant said in an interview aired by Oprah Winfrey that he always wanted to have a child and considers it a miracle.

"It's not a male or female desire to have a child. It's a human desire," a thinly bearded Thomas Beatie said.

"I have a very stable male identity," he added, saying that pregnancy neither defines him nor makes him feel feminine.

Beatie, 34, who lives in the US state of Oregon, was born a woman but decided to become a man 10 years ago.

He began taking testosterone treatments and had breast surgery to remove glands and flatten his chest.

"I opted not to do anything with my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day," he told the talk show host.

Beatie's wife Nancy said she inseminated him with a syringe using sperm purchased from a bank.

Now, he said, his size 32 jeans are getting a bit tight and his shirts are a bit stretched.

Nancy, to whom he has been married for five years and who has two grown daughters by a previous marriage, also appeared on the show, saying the couple's roles will not change once the baby is born.

"He's going to be the father and I'm going to be the mother," she said. Their marriage is legal and he is recognised under state law as a man.

The couple was shown on video provided by People Magazine, which collaborated with Winfrey on the show, showing the room that will be the baby's nursery.

Beatie said the little girl was going to be "daddy's little princess."

The couple was also filmed in their hometown of Bend, Oregon, where he underwent an ultrasound showing the baby in his womb.

"I can't believe it. I can't believe she's inside me," Beatie said while watching the ultrasound image.

"We see her as our little miracle."

His obstetrician, Dr Kimberly James, who practices in the Oregon town, told Winfrey, "This is a normal pregnancy."

She said Beatie stopped taking testosterone two years ago and his levels of the hormone are normal.

"This baby is totally healthy," she said.

"This is what I consider a normal pregnancy."

The couple said they had been turned down by a number of other doctors before James agreed to take him as a patient.

The couple said an earlier attempt at pregnancy failed when he developed a ectopic pregnancy, resulting in surgery that removed his Fallopian tubes.

The couple said they decided to go public with the pregnancy because they wanted to control the way the news got out.

"We're just going to have the baby now," Nancy said.

"If we have to, we'll go hide."

The couple runs a small business in Bend and has some savings, she said.

In addition, Beatie is working on a book about his childhood, his mother's suicide and his life growing in Hawaii where, as a girl, he was a teen beauty pageant contestant and earned a martial arts black belt.

Winfrey called the development "a new definition of what diversity means for everybody."

Its been all over the news everywhere, quite frankly, I don't see what all the fuss is about.

He was born a woman, found he was more manly so had testosterone injections and had his breasts removed (but his female bits are still down there) and recently got pregnant. It is not a man giving birth, it is a woman who turned into a half-man still with woman bits giving the baby.

That is soooo very very true.  I was reading and rereading one last night and just could not make sense of it, but thankfully Sunny answered so I didn't have to bother anymore. lol

Wow, I have not heard this story. Thanx for sharing it with us. That's very interesting. I hope all goes well for them with this new baby. Bringing a new baby into the world is a joyous moment for any couple smile What I find sad is that in this world we live in, some people not many accept such diversity and are extremely judgmental about couples like this. In this day and age, I think it's wonderful news and I hope someday the rest of the world will find acceptance in frowned upon , labeled relationships of such nature. Hmm, I wonder if this is the 1st transgender couple to become pregnant like this. Because it really is a miracle. I'm gonna research it on google. wink

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Wow a lot has happened here lately!
Our school made the front page of QLD's most popular newspaper for 4 days straight last week because they banned gay couples from taking their partners to the senior formal, and heaps of people had different opinions and it all ended up in one big religion vs homosexuality debate!! So at the end of last week the topic died down a bit but on monday we began school again and in the morning part of the school was shut off because they found a note threatening the school and a bag containing white powder next to it, and that is believed to be related to the gay issue. So all these ambulances, natural hazards and disaster firetrucks and police came and interviewed various people, then a news crew from channel 9 came and filmed stuff (it made the TV that night). And not to mention there was a rumour floating around that the bag contained Anthrax! I am pretty sure it didn't though...

And then today on my way home through the city (I need to go into the city from school to take a connecting bus home) 2 city blocks were shut off because an underground gas pipe was broken during the construction of a skyscraper...

Re: Ishimaru Pub

As I said to my father's familly (and got in nice trouble for):
Cite me the lines in the Bible that say homosexuality isn't accepted by "God" and I'll listen to you, if not (please) keep quiet and show tolerance

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Same opinion for me.  I tolerate gay and lesbian people.  One more reason : I have a lesbian cousin.

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Also apparently there was this 2020 Summit in Canberra devised by K. Rudd where 1000 people discuss options for Australia's future etc. and decide on new ideas... the topics brought forward left a lot uncovered (especially in the range of infrastructure) and what I don't understand is that K. Rudd said he had all these plans for the country back in Nov '07 when 52% of us voted him in, yet he comes out and asks for ideas to implement and his promises get ignored...? There is also talk of us becoming a republic...  :blink:

I agree with Bloods and IC's comments about the gay issue, but what I also don't get is why they contacted the media before going to the school council themselves first... then the issue would have been solved quicker without widespread knowledge of the verdict, and even they could have kept quiet and taken their partners to the formal anyway without asking  B) the school can't exactly kick them away from their formal just because of the person they took to it!

Re: Ishimaru Pub

I have a quick question on your opinion on the word 'Station' when being used with landmarks and bus stations and train stations etc. Normally I assume the 's' in station would be capitalised because it is a noun, but in a new bus station opening in 2 weeks in Brisbane CBD they spelt it with a small 's' and all the other letters were capitalised (King George Square station) it just looks wierd and wrong IMHO. What do you think?

Please note, these images are not mine and are from here:

IMG_5895small.jpg
IMG_5893small.jpg

Yet in London it's spelt with an 'S' (from above source as well)
london_building_aw050507_225.jpg

I know it is a small thing and it is a great facility, but it just looks distracting each time I see it, it just looks grammatically incorrect and plain wierd!

What do you think?

Re: Ishimaru Pub

In London, it's actually part of the name, therefore the Capital letter
I suppose that King Saint George's is a place and that it's station because it's not part of the name smile

Re: Ishimaru Pub

Someone putting in a water pipeline on the Gold Coast accidentally severed a fibre in the ground that connected Queensland to the outside world, so our whole state had no internet, phones, mobiles etc. coverage as the main carrier affected was Optus, which also owns some smaller companies which people use.

Many people upset with no phone to use (emergency number 000 still worked as they are with telstra) and many business lost money from people not being able to ring up and EFTPOS not working either.

Basically a hectic day here, things were fixed up at 2pm though  big_smile but the main question is why we only have 1 line to the outside world and none more  yikes

Re: Ishimaru Pub

I finally finished testing my phpBB3 style under IE6 and IE7 to make it compatible !

You can view it there : http://ishimaru-design.servhome.org/tes … /index.php
test user logins : testuser + test00

This is a sample forum, and this style will be available for self-service with a download link, just like my phpBB2 ones, so it won't be ID's next skin unless I adapt it for CB (yeah, Nessa asked me this question).

Most pics are in PNG format, and I've gotten sorted out about patching IE6's flaw with a JS for <img /> elements (yeah, the good old pngfix.js), and an extra stylesheet for backgrounds (since the JS patches who manage backgrounds have compatibility problems).

If you have a phpBB3, you can test it with this test package : http://ishimaru-design.servhome.org/div … _beta5.zip

And for those who wonder how I could test with both IE6 and IE7, type "Multiple IEs" on google.
