July 28 2000 - No Dick Smith Vintage Cheddar Cheese
We've had many requests for a Dick Smith's vintage or extra tasty cheese. We've decided against doing this because most of the cheese in this category comes Australian-owned companies. One of my reasons for starting Dick Smith Foods was that I wanted to assist Aussie farmers and companies by fighting back against the imbalance of foreign-owned companies, so that some profits stay in Australia.
That makes me tingly hehe
And one thing of particular intest to me:
"I am personally very concerned about the loss of our local words. Especially one that particularly worries me is that "bloke" is now called "guy" as they do in America"
I can't stand the word guy.. in fact id like everyone everywhere in the world from now on call ur friends ur mates and use bloke instead of guy.. whether ur yank, pom, chinese
