Thanks chic!!! You are so sweet and it's nice to see you too!! It's especially fun to come back when I have people here to talk to that are also online. (currently you and @ant) Now I just need to set aside some time to start posting videos again! Hopefully that will happen soon. I think I might have a little more privacy at work again in the next month or so. *fingers crossed*

Delighted to see you are around...and as usual, not the only one. But, you know that.

Enjoy!

I love them!!! They seem so clumsy though, it's a wonder they don't fall out of trees.

Your question prompted me to do some research and this is what I found out after exploring that youtube channel's other videos:

Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroos are a unique Australian species that are found in select, tropical rainforests of north Qld.

They're very cute

There's a red tree kangaroo in Melbourne Zoo, but they look a bit different. I wonder if these are the Australian ones? There are some that live in PNG and others that live in far northern Australia.

I know I'd love them! Especially because of the coconut (and did you notice when you click to the recipe it says "perfect with a nice cup of tea"?) At Christmas I always make a whole bunch of different cookies and one of the types I make is very similar (minus the coconut). This is the one...

I'm going to have to try yours next time instead because I have a feeling I might like it even better! I'd better print it off now before I forget!

Thank you for digging it up for me!

Hey @chingalera can we add this yummy looking coconut jam drops recipe of oritteropo's to your contest (even though he's made them before)?

Here's my promised recipe - http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/13554/coconut+jam+drops

Very easy, and very yummy. 360 deg F for old fashioned ovens Or Gas Mark 4 (I've never had an oven that used gas mark, but recipes give them). I think I put in the whole egg and not just the yolk, but I don't remember. I usually use raspberry jam (other recipes say use raspberry or strawberry, this one is more relaxed about type).

p.s. Important point - the measures are metric, so 1 cup is 250ml. Smaller cups might throw the amounts off a bit.

Someone at work brought these chocolate chip cookies in today. I asked her to email me the recipe since they were really good. So here you go...

Chocolate Chip Cookies
(makes 6 dozen cookies)

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, then set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix powder until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets covered in parchment paper. Refrigerate dough between batches so the dough doesn't become too soft before baking.

3. Bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Could be more or less depending on your oven. Edges should be golden brown.

Say no more...you had me at hot showers. Also, I'm more of a hot tea drinker than a cold water drinker anyway. Australia, here I come...

I've found one positive to 42 degree heat outside: When the whole house acts as a giant solar hot water heater, the shower runs hot instantly.

Of course, since it applies to both hot and cold, that's rather less of a positive when you want a cold glass of water.
