    I love Vegemite :drool5: but will not be getting any more after I have gotten tongue to the bottom of my jar :001_tt2: - it represents just a few too many air miles.

    In this case Langley was the name of the person who settled here. ;)

    Ollie's right - we should (and could) have our meal together during Murder Mystery Weekend. !!!

    CC, whilst (see, I'm practicing) I do plan to tour your little island there - this is a different subject that you keep attempting to merge into one. The Murder Mystery Weekend is in LANGLEY, WASHINGTON and, hence, to Langley, Washington you must come. :D

    4. And anyway, it is not hot here. Its a bit like Camelot really. Now Florida - THAT is hot and muggy.

    Shorts for me, ankle socks and hiking boots, a tank top with a picture of Milly on it and sunglasses. Since it sounds like it is going to be hot where we are eating...

    We call 'em thongs here too, Trev. Or zories. Actually, that's what we called in California. What about Washington, Lynn?

    So are we establishing that trev is wearing flip flops and not a thong? cos its just not british to dine wearing just a thong. My eldest girl is called Philippa and when she was little she used to call herself bip bop. We changed it to flip flop and now she is known by all as Flip. Not thong I hasten to add, but FLIP.

    Yeah, I saw that too, but wondered how old that is.... because I thought it was made outside Australia now. Maybe I am confused with the fact that Australia does not own Vegemite anymore.

    I saw it on a jar sometime ago saying it was all made in Melbourne. I know it was bought out by Kraft but don't know if manufacture was in other places after that.

    All this is leading to how many air miles is Vegemite...
