robplum: School kids played softball, also rugby, swimming and sailing. You can't beat Spag Bol.
Baseball isn't played down under, well I've never seen baseball played at anytime.
Down-under in yester-year, folks eat healthy home grown fresh vegetables, potatoes, fresh fish, cockles, mussels paua, lamb, mutton, pork, or grass feed beef, xmas dinner likely be roast chicken.
All that changed when they let Pasta, Burger King (Hungry Jacks) Mackers also Kentucky Finger-Lickin twenty seven day old chicken legs in. People every quickly developed big fat butts, flabby bodies.
The food i was accustom to, was either Maori (port and Puha or Hangi ) English or Chinese restaurants mainly sold healthy greens and not a lot of rice.
Generally speaking NZ never let Italians in but the Aussies did, but not NZ. Immigration was mostly British not many European or People of color lived in our communities, though lots of pacific islanders did.
So the cuisine remained mostly British, both Australia and New Zealand shipped food to the UK and kept the sill POME alive they shipped frozen food mutton, butter, cheese up until idiot Regan screwed the world and Britain joined the EU then the free hospitalization, dental care, free education, un-armed police made way for Regan's bullshit the social security system was dumped and dog eat dog with unfretted greed and a third rate medical system struggled to cope with obesity, cancer while the lying politicians started spreading bullshit like common flu gunner kill yah aided bill gates and the rothchilds as they big noted themselves, rubbed shoulders with war hero's to make out they were something while screwing everyone.
Events that totally screwed all the farmers who had spent there whole lives producing healthy food, a new system that wrecked whole rural communities, all the small family farms all but disappeared and people ended up eating chicken and rice that will probably herald the demise of every self respecting compose worm...
