Well...I almost pee-peed my pants in the last few seconds of the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead on Monday. Which one of the popular characters was going to get their head smashed in by the new characher Negan with his basball bat laced with barbed wire 'Lucille'? Come the moment of truth and all we were left with was blood splattered over the camera lense and no idea had their last day on earth. Suppose we'll have to wait till October 2016 before all will be revealed in the Season 7 opener.
Bring on 'Fear the Walking Dead' - Greg

After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant and conceited surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch was the first choice and was offered the lead role of Stephen Strange but initially had to decline due to his theatre commitments playing Shakespeare's Hamlet which will clash with the film's proposed shooting date. Joaquin Phoenix was the studio's second choice for the lead role but Phoenix, after a few months of deliberation, eventually turned down the offer due to his reluctance to do a multi-picture deal that was required by the studio if he signed on.
Enjoy the trailer - Greg
The Paspaley Darwin Star Ball is fast approaching and this year's theme is Mask of Mystery.
Greg and Ali recently caught up with Lisa Dewsbury from the Star Ball committee to find out about this year's entertainment.
Take a listen to their chat here.
Bernard Edwards (October 31, 1952 – April 18, 1996) was an American bass player, singer, songwriter and record producer, both as a member of the funk/disco band Chic and on his own projects. With Chic (active 1976–1983), Edwards created era-defining hits such as "Dance, Dance, Dance", "Everybody Dance", "Le Freak", "I Want Your Love" and "Good Times".
In 1996 Nile Rodgers was named Superproducer of the Year in Japan, and was invited to perform there with Chic in April of that year.
Just before the concert at the Budokan Arena in Tokyo, Edwards fell ill, but despite Rodgers' insistence, refused to cancel the gig. He managed to perform but had to be helped at times. At one point, Edwards blacked out for a few seconds before resuming his playing.
After the concert, Edwards retired to his hotel room where he was later found dead by Rodgers. The cause of death was ruled to be pneumonia. Edwards' final performance was later issued as the album Live at the Budokan. Here's a edit from that concert when Bernard Edwards was introduced to the audience by fellow band member Nile Rodgers. Hours later that night Edwards died.

Anzac Day services will be held right across the Top End on Monday. Which service do you plan to attend?
This morning Greg and Ali launched Food Jammin' with Sean Kildare of Inpex and Judy Anictomatis from the Country Women's Association.
Sean and Judy were challenged to come up with a recipe using three ingredients as chosen by you.
Today's ingredients were baby spinach leaves, kalamata olives and a can of tinned tomatoes. Here are their recipes.
Sean's Steak Sauce
Everyone loves a good steak, whether that’s beef, pork or chicken. The problem is that many people cook a great steak and then cover it with a commercial supermarket sauce that pretty much ruins it. So here’s a simple, great recipe for a rich, tasty sauce that will take your steak to the next level and is good for you as well. This recipe is also very suitable for vegetarians, as you can cook eggplant, mushrooms, potato for example ‘steak style’.
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
10 medium sized pitted Kalamata olives
Cup of baby spinach with stems removed from the leaves
1 garlic clove, finely grated
Half a medium size brown onion, sliced finely
2 anchovy fillets
Tsp chilli flakes
Cooking time – about 30 to 40 mins.
Saucepan on stove – medium heat
Add splash of olive oil and then the onion, stirring so it cooks evenly.
If using the onions, cook until they are soft and semi-see through.
Pour in whole tin of chopped tomatoes and stir through, break up larger tomato chunks with spoon if needed.
Season tomato with salt and pepper to taste (you can add chilli flakes at this point of you like).
Add finely grated garlic and stir through.
Chop anchovy and add.
Chop Kalamata olives and add.
Stirring occasionally, keep the sauce gently bubbling over a low to medium heat. Don’t let it stick to the saucepan.
If the sauce is drying out and thickening too quickly, add half a cup of water.
You need to cook it through for a good 30 to 40 mins to ensure the tomato breaks down and transforms into that rich, thick sauce texture.
Prepare your steak to your liking. While it is resting (you should always rest a steak before serving), take the sauce off the stove and add the baby spinach leaves, stir through.
Leave the sauce to cool slightly while the spinach is wilting.
Chef’s Tip: taste sauce and if you find it too tart (acidic), and some people find tomato based dishes are like that, just add a teaspoon of sugar and stir through. It will take the tangy edge off.
Plate your steak and drown it in the sauce. You will probably need to take the remaining sauce to the table with a spoon, because you can’t stop eating it!
Judy's Spinach Risotto
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 bag of baby spinach leaves
1 tin diced tomatoes
1/2 cup medium grain rice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Fetta cheese (crumbled)
Saute onion in a large casserole dish with a little olive oil. Wash the spinach, chop roughly if not baby spinach. Chop tomatoes and add to the onions, together with the spinach. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Add the rice and two cups (500ml) water, stir and allow to simmer covered, until the rice is cooked, for about 20 minutes. Add more water if it is too dry.
Serve in a bowl with fetta crumbled and olives on top.
