12 Foods Your Dog Should Avoid


Looking after our four-legged, faithful, furry friends is very important to me. I am such an animal lover. We all have a duty of care where our pets are concerned. 

I would like to share this infographic with you. Very important stuff, if we want to keep our companions happy and healthy.











Our dogs give us so much, let's make sure that we are looking after them properly.

Menulog - No. 1 for Online Takeaway - Review and Giveaway


When you have had a busy day, and you finally get home sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is cooking and you would love a good takeaway meal but you just don't feel like the usual delivery and going out again isn't high on your list. What do you do about dinner?

Have you heard of Menulog. It is a great little website that makes it super easy to organise food delivery to your door.

Menulog has a huge range of restaurant selections. Over 4200 Australia wide. As well as literally thousands of reviews available. The website is also completely mobile thanks to the Menulog app which is available for iPhone or Android.

You can choose Delivery or Pickup. You can see at a glance what the minimum order for delivery is, the speed they deliver and the promotions and specials they have going at the moment. You get to see the restaurant’s menu and the price list at a glance.

The user friendly browse pages for Brisbane currently lists 436 restaurants, with 53 cuisines available.

We decided to give Menulog a go for dinner last night. It is really easy to use. 

1. On your computer go to www.menulog.com.au

2. In the box under Find Restaurants in Your Area...  Enter Your Postcode and press  Let's Go!




3. It then loads a page with all the restaurants in your area that are listed on their site. These are the listing for Beenleigh Take-Away with Delivery.



4. Then you can just click on the Order or the Pre-Order Button. Go through the Menu and choose some yummy food. Click Place your Order when you have finished. Pick a payment method and you are done.



5. A confirmation email will be sent to you, with your order as an attachment.

6. Then you wait for it to be delivered to your door.

7. The only thing left to do is to enjoy your delicious meal.





Pappadums are a favourite with all my kids. Next time I will have to order twice as many I think! I would like to highly recommend Kasturys Indian Cuisine in Beenleigh, Queensland. Service is excellent and the food is delicious.

Tap King - A New Kind of In-Home Beer System Has Arrived!


An in home beer system is possible and available so that you can dispense icy cold beer straight from your fridge into your glass. That sounds just a bit awesome to me.

Tap King has a special fridge ready dispenser. It fits beautifully into the fridge. Then all you need to do is buy the bottles. 



The bottles are big 3.2 litre bottles filled with great tasting beer and they fit onto the dispenser and then with glass in hand you are ready to go. 


The bottles are easy to fit onto the dispenser which even comes with it's own little drip tray! It then is just a matter of pressing the lever and pouring it into your glass.

A bottle holds about 10 glasses of beer. But we somehow got about 14 glasses from it. Bonus!

The Tap King dispenser and all the bottles are available at your local liquor shop or available to buy online from www.tapking.com/

I didn't really believe that this big plastic bottle could give a high quality and delicious tasting beer. But it really does. 

For the best quality beer with a good head you must chill the bottles in the fridge for 8 hours before you crack it open.

We tried the James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale. Which I think will become a favourite in our house. But also available are:

Tooheys New
Tooheys Extra Dry
XXXX Gold
James Boag Premium Lager
Hahn Super Dry
James Squire Chancer Golden Ale



It is excellent for parties but also just to have on hand in the fridge, for a glass with a meal or when friends come around. It is also great to give as a gift.

As a special at the moment for just $49 dollars at Dan Murphy's you can get 2 Tap King 3.2L bottles plus a dispenser unit and a commemorative ‘Dad Badge’ to complete the perfect gift (limited number of badges available, while stocks last).

Also until September 10, you can purchase any 3.2L Tap King bottle and Dispenser Unit from Liquorland or First Choice for the majestic price of just $30 (while stocks last).

Check out their facebook page at www.facebook.com/tapkingdom for lots more info. If you enjoy a nice beer then you really must give this a try.
