Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Connect. I thank Allen and Connect for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.

Boneless Sausages

I usually buy sausages from the various butchers around town. There have been several times when we have found bone or very hard flesh in them.

Some sausages are sold very cheap. In this day and age things that are cheap are just that – cheap. I've spoken to many people who work in the butchers and they say they never buy their own sausages. I wonder why.

I wonder also whether television could screen a short  documentary so that we can see what is being put into these cheap sausages. Some cheap sausages have very fancy names and funny tastes.  If one day I find part of a cow's hoof in a sausage, I won't be surprised.

A man selling curry and roti in town told me that it was boneless sausage curry. How about that! He must have de-boned the sausage first.

Speaking of sausages in the last twenty four hours a major investigation in an Auckland Prison found that certain prisoners had a particular craving for a type of sausage but what befuddled wardens on close inspection was the nature in which these sausages was manufactured.

It was the first time they saw what appeared to be several coil of spiralled skinless boerewors sausages how’s about that aye.

There’s always a first.

Allen posts are perhaps a classic example of disjointed ideas and poor grammar.

Would it be more interesting for Allen to explore his personal attempts of making his own sausages. Spare me the details of boneless sausage conversation (he had with a vendor) who probably was equally ignorant as Allen, of the sausage products he sold.

Preferably, I like Bratwurst.
Sauerkraut anyone?

Thanks Jambalaya.

Will explore grammar studies and sausage making.

Anyway, fancy named locally made sausages, if microwaved, will become a shriveled up mess. It seems fat and animal offal are being used, hence the need for a visual on the manufacture process.

I look forward next week to Allen's in depth investigation on the quality and price justification of imported NZ mutton.
