WhatThe F#%*,,,,,,,,,,WHO FORGOT TO OFF THE SPRINKLER  SYSTEM

Happened a couple of years ago at the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Burleigh Heads on the GC. Service starts at 4.28 & at about 4.15, all the sprinkler heads popped up out of the ground & turned on in the middle of a crowd of 1000 people - fun! :'(

You weren't up here on holidays then were you Speewa ??? >:D

Me too.   Great Facebook page.   I got bogged at Inskip Point. 
I started watching the vids when they posted the Subaru Outback driven by the backpacker chick back it into the Defender (from memory) after being snatched.   
He's getting heaps of vids at the moment as it hasn't rained for a while and it's all very powdery (until tonight as I suspect the rain we have here in Brisbane will find its way there). 
I've always been paranoid about being bogged on the beach.   But after seeing all the cars including a Corolla, Falcon Ute, Nissan Pathfinder (new crappy one - not the 4x4 previous model), Rav's and all sorts getting towed out by good Samaritans - I'm no so worried about my Prado now :)
And - how many do you see snatching with the tow ball?   Scary stuff.

I suspect it's an ancient ritual they do to fathers to see just how far they can push us before they choose some poor dumb schmuck to ultimately nag to death about keeping their nest tidy and putting the toilet seat down.

1st day back at work today after 3 weeks holidays, nothing to be happy about there I know....but the builder I work for (who's house I was working on today) rocked down stairs at lunch time and gave me a 6 pack of Bundy cans. The 6 pack was from a home owner who's house we'd worked on pre xmas, and being I finished the year a few days earlier then the other guys at work, I had missed getting my thank you present from said home owner before I went away....so I got it today on my first day back at work.

First service in 9 years and cost me $89.00. The guy who serviced it told me the belt needs to be inspected on the next service.........I said I'll see you in 9 years.  :cheers:

I think I'm currently writing the date as 2017??   Any of you wizards going to continue this in the new edition    :laugh:

OK then :D

Driving down the M1 yesterday, just coming up to an on-ramp & there's a Police bike sitting at the side of the road with his lights on. Had a glance as I went past & he's been talking to a maybe homeless bloke (bit scruffy & with a bed-roll over his shoulder) whose apparently been walking down the Motorway, so I guess the cop's told him to get off & walk along normal roads?

Anyway, drove past & reached the on-ramp 100m's further on & another bike came screaming up the ramp, passed me like I was standing still (I was sitting on 100), across between me & the car in front to the right lane then zip, zip, zip to change lanes 3 times to & pass more cars.

Just had time to think Wow ::), when the cop also zoomed past me with his lights still on, caught up to the other bike, brief burst of siren & pulled him over :D :police:

Moral of this story - don't be a jerk 100m's away from a cop! :D >:D

The bridge is in the Mary Valley.
Its not easy getting something "Aussie" into the shot without overcrowding the photo.
I'm no photographer though, I proved that.
I did around 16 shots and those 4 were the best, including my artie shot with the long grass.  :-[

Breakfast went well though, we had a 1923 T Track roadster (Turbo rotary powered) and a very cool 75 HJ ute in the driveway.
The breakfast was for the owners of USA to AUS that bought our car in for us.

They were camping at Poona for the week, so we caught up with them last Sunday and again this morning.
We must've been ok to deal with during the import process, as they contacted us last week-end.  (Who'd a Thunk It)

That's a good outcome, better than the dole...

so if all the workers quit their job at the other place that are battling with AGL over wages (I still don't understand why you wouldn't accept 20% rise over 4yrs), is that an option?

This van would look fabulous behind a 30s/40s model car.

The caravan is built on a WOODEN chassis with some steel reinforcing around the A frame. The cladding is Masonite and the roof is Canite with canvas over that.

The floor is 6X1 Oregon pine.

Internally there is an icebox and a large pantry, also a large wardrobe/storage area.

The cushions are original!

The table can drop to another bed if required.

There is some 240v lighting and a power point.

I have a half annexe (new) which fits the half behind the door. It is made to be sympathetic with the style of the van.

The box on the front of the van is an old grenade box.

I have upgraded the axle and put electric brakes with LT tyres.

Please don't call if you want to make 'Janorma' into a coffee shop or a teen agers retreat......she deserves much better than that

Pick up only.

A Mk1  and a Mk2 Consul wagon .. Going by what I've read, the Mk1 Wagons were special builds by Contract  coach  builders and another company  did a convertible and possibly one  coupe fast back version .

But the bit that get's me is that they're held up as our Great Hope to once again lead the World in tennis ???

They're the best we've got ???

I reckon I could find a couple of 10yo kids having a bash down at the local tennis courts that would wipe the floor with either of them :D >:D

Seem to be classic examples of reading too many newspaper stories about themselves & starting to believe that they must be s!@# hot - well, they're half right! :D

Got a couple of things to smile about picked up this 6x4 cage trailer for $400 because the guy couldn't get the lights working.
So went & bought new lights,cable and 7pinplug.
Now when it comes to 12v I'm hopeless so you experts would be goi go easy fix. My 14 year old tom and I started from scratch replaced everything and it all worked first time

Total cost $470

or the ones that don't even know how to put it in 4wd... and when you ask, they glare at you.. then when you say have you let air out of your tyres, they say either
- no
- yes about 2 seconds worth.... like the bloke at Robe nearly died when we let his disco tyres down to 10psi from 55psi - until he drove out.

I have to say I got more than a smile.
1. Contract came through for the sale of a property, now the 30 days begins till settlement

2. I think I may have found a way into a shore side equivalent of my former position that had me traveling about the world for the last near on 20 years, in particular the one bit I really liked.

Hummm, should this go well, could be buying an accessory for the back of my Tug.....   ;D

The real muppets are the people that paid to watch this fight IMHO, apparently it was the second highest paid for view fight in Australia. I can't believe so many people would waste their money watching 2 old has beens in a ring, no wonder they both walked away with $10 million each. I have no issue with people paying to watch quality fights, but this was never going to be that.

I was sitting home alone last night with a few beers. At the last minute I thought stuff it I'll order it on Foxtel.
Logged in and saw it was $59.95.  Not a chance!  Ended up watching half of it on Facebook, thanks to all the people who streamed it.

What made me smile is what my daughter has asked me to do for her birthday....which was to set the camper trailer up in the backyard for her and her friends to sleep in tonight. She also wanted a fire for them to sit around and toast marshmallows in, but it'll be to hot here for that, so she's not getting that part of her wish...lol.

I went to pay some money online today, and needed my wallet for some info. After searching around the house, I realised I must have lost my wallet, when we went to the movies last night.  ??? Tried to ring the movie theatre, but could only get pre-recorded messages and couldn't speak to a real person there.  ??? So the mrs drove into town, to go and ask if anyone handed it in, and I got online to put a hold on my credit card and minimum daily limit on my keycard (I didn't want to cancell yet, incase I got it back). While I was on my banking site, I could see no extra transactions have shown up, but I did notice that payments were still being withdrawn for an old Flexipol policy that was supposed to have been closed off and rolled over, just before Christmas..  ???

The mrs rang me back to say no wallet at the counter, and they wouldn't let her in to look in the theatre because a movie was currently running. So, because she had other arrangements, she came home and I drove in to have a search in the theatre, when the movie had finished. Got in there, waited for about 15 mins before they'd let me in, then went in and found my wallet, fully intact, sitting on the seat where we had been the night before.  :cup:

When I got back home, I spent about 2 hours trying to sort out the payments that were still being taken out of my bank account. Eventually it turns out that I actually had 2 different policies with this mob, and only one (the one I knew about) was closed down. The other one was still current. "OK, so how much do I have in this other account" I asked the bloke on the phone.. "Just over $32,000 payout figure" he says.  :cup: :cup:

Funny how things can turn around like that..

So Mr Palmer, you authorised a payment from the Company to yourself of $15mill - what was it for? Sorry, I don't remember details like that.

& you then gave $8mill to your father-in-law - what was that one for? Don't remember that either but would probably have just been for family love ???

His company went down the gurgler owing $300mill, leaving an unholy mess for the taxpayers to clean up & 800 people out of work, while he's giving himself untold millions >:( I can see him being found lying in the gutter one day, full of bullet holes, & I don't think too many people will be very upset about it >:D The :police: would also have a pretty hard time pinnning it down to one bloke with a motive as well! >:D

Me: Wow how did you get onto me so quickly?
Him: We are are very modern company with up to date communications. I am here to help you.

Me: I'm glad you've rung as I've been a bit worried about it, I don't really understand how this accident happened or what to do next.
Him: We will take care of everything, now just give me the details of the accident.

He gave me the one fingered salute and I thought, fair enough truckwit, you'll stop soon enough. It was either diff or transmission oil that he was dumping and LOTS of it.

Just as I backed off, a piece of something flew out from under the truck and right through the lane I was in. Backed off even further and about 200m later the drive shaft fell out ;D

Ooops. I was about 5 cars back in a queue one day on the road to Agnes Waters. The lead car was a xe Falcon Wagon. Came to the T intersection on to the road to Bundy. Falcon takes off in a big hurry, lots of smoke(mainly from the engine I think, Not much from the tyres). 200m up the road the Falcon pulls off to the wrong side of the road and pulls up. As I get get closer there was something laying in the middle of the road. Yep, one Falcon tailshaft.

Made it to day 10 without a ciggy. I've only been smoking for 40 odd years so it's not like its become a habit.

Well done mate, you have won the biggest battle.  It only takes 5 days to get the nicotine out of your body so huge congratulations  :cup:  Now the rest is just habit.  You need to change what you used to do as a smoker.  If you had a smoke after a meal, go for a walk, go have a shower, do anything but plop down in your favourite chair where you used to lite up.  Same with any other durrie lighting habits, change them now.  Keep going, the hardest bit is done and dusted.

I gave up 25 years ago. However, biggest mistake by my wife was "I don't care how much you drink so long as you stop smoking." Took her at her word.

Congratulations!! I was the same (40+ years) & my big help was that I realised that, apart from the nicotine, the main thing was habit.
In a certain situation, like a break in work, I would have a ciggy. I learnt to cope with this & the rest was reasonably easy.
All the best.

Haha, my job here is done then. :)

And for correction; the assumption was that others would "also" not know the meaning of all of those big words.... ;D
Not exactly common vocabulary there.

It's pretty easy to work out most Chinglish, but I reckon it's worth noting the ones that actually make you check the dictionary to confirm that words actually mean what you think they do.

Thought I'd do the right thing and support local businesses whilst our town is doing it tough and priced up a list of parts for the Cruiser from the dealer today and it came to $1200.
Placed an order with a mob that I use overseas and the exact same order, genuine parts, with freight came to....................................$596.
That made me smile.
By the way, if you want parts for your vehicle try this mob. www.partsouq.com (http://www.partsouq.com)

However, I did source a Shell road map of California (Our car was in California for 52 years) for the grand sum of $10.00

The best bit, its in Laidley, an hour west of Brisbane........ and its SOLD TO ME.  :cup:

I've been involve with the Lawrence Rodeo for a couple, a committee member for two.
These half dozen hard working people organize and run the Lawrence Rodeo held at the Maclean Show Ground between Christmas & New Years. It has been operating for nearly Twenty years.
Local groups/club that are involved include the local Pony Club, Two local cricket Clubs, Local Football Club, Lawrence Historical Society, Lawrence Primary School & Pre School and The Grafton & District 4wd Club(which I am currently the president of).
Some of the duties that the Clubs undertake are running Stalls(Drinks, Hot Chips, BBQ's, Sausage sizzles, The front Gate, Parking, Erect and pull down the Gates, Shoots, Arena, some times we finish up at about 2am in the morning, it can be a long day for some people.

This year it was the biggest crowd ever, stalls ran dry of some food & drinks, even some vendors that pay to attend run out of stock.

it was the Presentation night last night, this is were the profit is split up between the clubs and some charities are gifted moneys so they can continue their good work helping others.

The Committee gave away a record amount of $21 000.00 to Clubs, Groups and donated to worthy causes.
It makes me feel proud of our small Lawrence Community, a few people come together and make life easier for others that would normally take months of hard work to raise funds to keep their club or group going.

Our 4wd Club received a donation for $1700.00, this will mean we can put on a better day out for a group of Kids that have had a rough trot in live and are homed at a local Orphanage(Cowper Home). We take a group with their Careers for a day trip into the back blocks and show them some of the wonderful Country we have for a Backyard. We put on a BBQ lunch, take Ice Creams, cake and take them away from their worries for the day.

Now that makes me smile.

know exactly how you feel mate, we had some similar reactions over the years with some work we did in my old 4wd club.....the CFA guys we donated a brand new brush cutter to were stoked when they got it, work we've done raising money for Bravehearts foundation, and even had a Ranger almost crying after our club and another did a clean up Australia Day in the park he managed...plenty of clown 4wder's and bike riders trashing his park every year, but the amount of rubbish we all pulled out of that park in one day was a sight to see, the head Ranger was overcome and just couldn't believe the job everyone had done there....always feels good when you give to others.

probably on drugs to be acting like that non the less.
Reminds me of the guy I saw many years ago at a pay phone in the
middle of town in Sydney...this guy was going beserk screaming down the phone line, he was threatening the person on the other end telling them they better not be home when he gets there etc etc etc...was quite the sight to see for all of those around who were walking past at the time.

Human hair wigs can be very expensive $1.000 plus, any colour you want.
My grand daughter, 9 years old with waist length blond hair had it cut off and donated it to kids with cancer to have it made into wigs, for kids. Her mission now is to regrow it and do it again.
It makes me happy to see kids of young ages do these things as we have such a selfish, younger set these days.

Sure is mate, When my wife passed, she was 7 years old, she made a card, especially for her funeral. She then placed it in the open coffin, so it would stay with her for eternity. My wife passed of terminal cancer and Eva, as young as she was understood the pain people ,especially kids go through, loosing their hair after chemo.
You have to be very proud of your daughter for her spirit and fore site to help others. God bless her.

Finally finishing pruning and taking the top out of a 30m Pittosporum hedge that I let grow too big. It took 4 hours yesterday and 1 hour today with the trusty Stihl kombitool. I used a combination of the hedger and chainsaw with the extension, so 6m height. The front face was reasonably ok but I had to take 1m off the top, I literally put the hedger at 90 degrees and walked it along the top of the hedge. Anything that was too big for the hedger I used the chainsaw. Now I have to get rid of all the crap, I should have got speewa to do it :)

i paid about $650 - $700 to get a local mobile guy replace the compressor in my old 105 series, most other places (companies I had to drive to) wanted between $1100 - $1300 to do the same job. No idea what the compressor cost from Amayana, I didn't have the gear to do the job myself, so didn't bother looking.

This was the FUNNIEST thing Ive seen in months ..
Pulled up at a set of traffic lights this morning, Car pulls up along side , lights change green, go to take off and a terrible screech and crunching sound comes from the car beside us " the driver had tried to start the car again " It was already running " .
  MORE  Crunching of gears and bunny hops and it takes off in the  wrong gear but manages too just barely, MORE  grinding of gears and jerking as they went up the road, this goes on at the next lights too ..
FUNNIEST thing was it was obviously  a BRAND NEW CAR being driven by a sales guy from the local dealership on trade plates to the service station to top up the fuelfor a test drive, With prospective buyers, Ma and Pa Kettle as passengers ..
WONDER if they ended up buying it ?   ;D ;D ;D

Was just on the phone with one of our suppliers at work, he was driving in a small country town and mentioned a group of fine young ladies were crossing the road as he waited at the traffic lights.
After a couple of seconds there was a pause then a strange silence, then he says; I'll have to call you back.

Apparently the group of fine young ladies were walking to their friends in the camper van that was stopped behind him, as they got to the back of his car the driver of the van pointed to the back of his car and they all started laughing like crazy.
One of the girls came up to his window, still pissing her self laughing and said he had made her day.

This is his bumper sticker and it sounds like it did.....

Apparently he "jamed a bolt in the hose" which I assume would have been the PCV hose, not the EGR pipe ::)

So going by  their header they get ticked off by people parking badly, Especialy 4x4's, to bad if it was the only park bay left and you had to park close or slightly over the bay lines like that and the other cars have since left, Had that happen before and copped abuse for the way we were parked..
Also had to wait for inconsiderate people to return to their cars, as they have parked a couple of  inches off the side of ours on both sides..
Thats when their car boot / bonnet becomes my shopping trolly  and seat  ;D

The upside of being blindfolded, is not having to look at race director Animal in his jocks....

A clubmate passed away suddenly and his widow asked if a few Jeeps could join his funeral procession.  Despite the venue being 2 hours away for most of us, the turnout was pretty good.  It definitely provided a smile for the family and those who knew him well.  Farewell Shane.

A friend of mine tired of the corporate life applied for a job in a local lemon orchard to chill out for a bit. She was concerned the orchard owner would think she may not be qualified for the job given her arts and education degrees and her jobs as a social worker and school teacher.
Looking at her soft, moisturised hands, the foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this:"
"Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"
"Well", my friend said, "as a matter of fact, I have!"
"How so, asked the foreman?"

"Well I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Falcons and a Lada Niva, barrack for Collingwood, and I voted for Malcolm Turnbull."..

She got the job.......

This made me smile today......

Mrs Jeepers was in a ballroom dancing comp today.

3 x 1st place and 1 x 2nd place.

I did everything I could to support her, I stayed home and pulled the motor outta da Caddy.  ;D

Which looks pretty good too, except for the bit of piston that's missing..... looks like it went straight out the exhaust.
You see a fair portion of the top compression ring exposed.

So, while I was a bit disappointed the Caddy had a "little sick", its very repairable.

But hey, how good is the ol girl...... wish I could dance huh.

I look like a 3 legged dog that's just swallowed a bait writhing around on a wet lino floor. :-[

Looks like Florida has a sheriff like Arizona has, "You kill a policeman it means no arrest...no Miranda rights...no negotiations...nothing but as many bullets as we can shoot into you...period." said Polk County Florida Sheriff, Grady Judd

An illegal alien, in Polk County, Florida, who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop, ended up "executing" the deputy, who stopped him.

The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area.

As soon as he took a shot at the SWAT team, officers opened fire on him.

They hit the guy 68 times. Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why they had to shoot the poor, undocumented immigrant 68 times.

Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel: "Because that's all the ammunition we had."

Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what!

The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes.

When asked by a reporter how that could be, since there were 68 bullet wounds in his body, he simply replied: (BEST QUOTE ever) .. ..

"When you are shot 68 times, you are naturally gonna die."
"Welcome to Florida, Y'all...

I grew up in Darwin and we used to swim in the sea because our parents had brains enough to shoot crocs and keep them from eating us. They stopped all shooting in 69 and now Darwinites have to check their swimming pools before going for a dip and there'd be a Royal Commission if you shot one now (indigenous folk exempted).
Just bemused that Broome gets a free pass apparently.

Sometimes, human nature can be wonderful.
As a volunteer for marine rescue, we often have to help out boats with simple mechanical failures or breakdowns.

Today we helped out the most obliging, nice and grateful gentleman one could imagine.

He spent most of his time apologising for being so much trouble, he wasnt at all.

Its nice occasionally to be thanked so enthuastically.

You leave with a great big smile.

Its nice when you get a response like that. It's the frequent flyers that used grate on me. The ones you tow back 2/3 times (who aren't members) every summer, without a thanks or handshake. Unfortunately, as a volunteer organisation, you cant give them an invoice.

Going by the local media beat up on Ex storm girl Debbie and the tempest its about to unleash on us, Supermarket shelves have been stripped bare of bottled water and bread and We need to get hold of Noah to save us from the coming floods, evacuation orders are being put into place ..
Quick check of the weather for the Tweed catchment and weve had less than a 200 mm of rain  since yesterday, 23 mm of that today, Severe  winds expected to hit 30 kts this afternoon [ we have that most times camping on the beach at  Fraser  ]  ;D
Not being complacent but the media and others make me smile ...
Looking at how quick this weather is moving on the radar, I reckon give it another 5 odd hours at best and it will be over us and headed  off shore ..
Part of  it did inland of Gladstone to over Fraser Island in about 1.5 hours and the bulk of it is virtualy now South East of Toowoomba.

Nah, Qld is littered with them.

A few years ago, a 40 foot boat was being lifted out by the travel lift at the marina and a bull shark latched onto one of the props.
He was nearly completely out of the water before he let go too.

Post by: woftam on April 05, 2017, 06:11:47 PM
So many things to smile about.
After 15 months I can finally get on the road again.

Smile 1 – hit the road Saturday driving to a remote indigenous community in NT for a 3 month contract. 4,000 Km road trip yay.

Smile 2 – hit a goat 40 km west of Nyngan. Smile is not for hitting the bloody thing but for the fact that the bullbar did its job and other than a scuff mark, some blood and guts on the undercarriage there was no damage.

Smile 3 – under the Patrol just legs showing and I hear some footsteps arrive and a voice asks if I’m needing any help. Now I’ve had a long day, I have a headache and I’m cleaning the last of the goat off the underside. But not wanting to seem ungrateful I just say that I’m OK. He then proceeds to tell me how great a mechanic he is. Again, not wanting to seem ungrateful I tell him it’s not actually a mechanical issue. Well he is an electrical genius as well if that’s the issue. So I tell him about the goat and ask him if I pass out the charred and uncharred remains I’ve collected would he mind putting them in the bin. Hello ? Hello ? Look out from under the Patrol and all I can see is a pair of legs retreating rapidly.

Smile 4 – pulled up at a rest area 50 km south of Coober Pedy to find a never used firepit dug and circled with rocks, complete with wood supply. Bush television for one ready made.

Smile 5 – Watching the road trains go past at night. A road train at night, at speed, all lights blazing - awesome.

Smile 6 – Fuelled up in Port Augusta, drove to Alice Springs before refuelling. Worked out to be 15.67 l/hundred kms. For a fully loaded Patrol towing a large camper (Complete Campsite Fraser) cruising at 95 kph that is not too shabby.

Smile 7 – the Stratos suspension seat. Just great even when spending hours a day in it for multiple days.

In fact I’m so happy now I’m not even going to the rant thread to whinge about the bad things on the trip

Stop renting the office pot plants. Seriously 20k a year to rent pot plants.
But don't you greeny type fret now. Every one who wants a plant can have their own personal pot plant supplied that they will be responsible for.
I suggested that they could supply pot plants that would make them more than 100k a year. They didn't think that was funny.

Then for the last 10 km to his farm I was on a dirt and dusty road. He laughed when I arrived. He said they never wash their cars - just wait for rain. But he did appreciate the effort. Now I can get both cars back into the carport.

Fixing my Engel, that made me smile for a quick cheap fix.

Went to get a drink out of it today and it was a little warm. No power getting to the unit, I thought this is great considering we go to the National meet in less than a week. A quick check of the plugs and the fuses showed no fault. I thought the worst that the compressor or electrics had gone.

 I then remembered the incoming line to the plug had fused in line. Checked the positive, all good. Of course for some funny reason the negative has a fuse and it was broken, not fused out but the glass casing had let go from one of the capped ends and it had slowly been twisting around and around and had broken. All good now with a quick replacement. Woohoo, cold drinks are back on

Grange was a '93 & the 707 an '89.

Loving the miserable weather in Melbourne today.  Home alone and way too wet for any much needed gardening.

I've been forced onto the couch with beer and bourbon watching the V8's.  Now backing it up with the F1's.

Got the NRL and AFL on record, so I've got something to do in the evening.

Had to laugh today at the oddly eclectic collection of wares on sale. Where else can you buy a lemon tree, trumpet, car fridge, wheelchair and a bicycle with your milk and bread.....

I ended up buying it, and the kids at Gumtree sent me a message  "An ad on your watchlist has been deleted by its poster, but below you can find similar items we think you'll enjoy."
I just can't fathom what how I would use a couple of sets of false eye lashes, including special edition Halloween spider lashes as a site office.

I smiled today when I finally got all my Caddy engine bits down to Footy Shorts Shane on the Sunny Coast.
Overall, the ol girls internals are pretty good and should come up a treat with a rebuild.

Seeing its been 23 years since my last V8 rebuild of any sorts, i'm going to cheat and get Shane to whack the crank, rods and cam into it and i'll do the rest at home.

So, sitting back now with a Black Douglas and Ginger Beer on ice with a dash of lime.....hmmmm....yummy.

Another thing that throw people off is spelling mistakes on selling sites in item descriptions and how they can often help buyers. Earlier in the week I bought a Quad bike on Gumtree that was listed as a Quid Bike. Apparently there was little in the way of enquiries.
A couple of years ago I got a nice Bear compound bow off Ebay for a really low price that was listed as a compund bow. No spell check helped me.

Did Inskip a few times while we were there... Not a single issue... All about tyre pressures and not too much right boot...

When we got there, I just cruised out with lowish pressures at about 15 clicks...  Old mate screams out at 85, sand and Shit flying everywhere, asks "what pressures should I be running mate?" He had 65 rears, 50 fronts...

Aired him down to 18 and 26 and he could drive normally...  First time on sand, and all the gear but a deflator and a clue

gave the panel a run over Easter...well tried to on day one, but the reg didn't appear to work on it, so I then bypassed the reg and it ran fine after that. Didn't really monitor it's output much/ if any, but did see it putting in 9.5A (according to the campers inbuilt set up it has) at one stage when the sun popped out from behind the clouds.

Opened up the camper this morning in the backyard as I need to dry it completely (was still a tiny bit wet at pack up yesterday), thought I might tackle fixing the doors fly screen zipper that is broken / doesn't zip up properly. Did a google yesterday of how to fix broken tent zipper and watched a few videos that show the zipper just needs a slight squeeze closed with vice grips or pliers etc to get it working properly again, so thought I'll see if that works. A quick light squeeze with the multi grips on either side of the zipper and it appears as though I have fixed the broken fly screen zipper issue  8) 8) was a touch concerned camping on a property on the weekend of snakes and the like getting into the camper as the non functioning  fly screen zipper is all that seals them out, now it's a non issue. Missus showed me Facebook pic last night from Moreton Island over Easter that had a 2.5mtr carpet snake get in someone's tent, and wrap around a kids arm and then bite their child, so thought best to fix that issue ASAP

Wouldn't call it a smile, more like half an hour of pi$$ing myself..............
Went camping at a property off Putty rd in NSW. As I was coming south from QLD and No. 1 and No.2 son was coming north from Melb, we met in the middle.
Anyways, son No.2 asked if I could pick him up a Supacentre swag (over my dead body) so I got him a Darche AWOL double for him and his GF which he knew about and has known about to the point he'd recite the specs of the swag to me.
Sets it up and states "no poles". I unpacked it from the box it came in (no poles in there) at home and the consensus was that the poles should be in the swag. Nope swore black and blue............no poles.
The Darche swag was set up and poles jerry rigged with sapling branches and a spare pole floating around in the Patrol.

3 nights later and whilst packing up, a sheepish No.2 son wanders over and shows me this bag with brand spanking new poles and a bag of pegs etc that were found in a zipped compartment at the head of the swag.

I've been texting him every day, the specs on the AWOL highlighting the "Built in zippered pole & peg storage pocket" of which he has mentioned several times....... ;D ;D ;D
At least, xmas will be easy. Swag poles........;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

If I had to guess where the weirdest game show was held, there’s no contest whatsoever.

It’s f*cken Japan, and they take the cake so badly that I can’t even think of a second place that could compete.

I know there’s a whole bunch of weird game shows in Japan, and I think we’ve found the winner.

This is a game show where you have to sing karaoke while getting a… wait for it… handjob.

Yes you heard that right. You have to go on TV, pull down your dacks and sing a song while your meat gets vigorously beaten by an attractive Japanese woman whose sole goal is for you to blow your load before you finish the song.

If singing some AC/DC doesn’t do it for me, the woman tugging on my cock just might get me over the line.

Edz needed a new 12V compressor as we killed our 20 odd year old one after coming off Fraser Island last year. So off to Autobarn today to buy a new one for Fraser Island this year. We ended up saving ourselves $79 off the shelf price and this made Edz very happy. It is great to see him smile after the hard times we have had recently with health, work, etc. Now to look forward to getting everything ready for our trip to Fraser Island this year which will be even more smiles from Edz and our 9 year old daughter.

Finding the new 6 switch control panel for my camper that I need to replace the old one that won't allow my diesel heater to run at the moment (Kimberly no longer use it, and the guy where I bought the camper from couldn't tell me where to get another, though he did try and search online with no success). My smile turned upside down when I copped the Camec price for it though...wasn't my first port of call by any means, and not knowing the brand of the panel meant I couldn't search successfully for it online (I did search for it though). As a last ditch effort I stopped in at Camec after the guy from Whitworths suggested there, very happy to have what I need to run the heater through Winter though....just gotta fit it over this long weekend now.

Internet services in the Northern Territory are expected to be restored on Tuesday afternoon after a 19-hour outage caused by a bogged 4WD severing a transmission cable.

A spokesperson for Vocus – which owns the Nextgen transmission cable – confirmed to iTnews that the cable had been cut yesterday.

"Vocus became aware of the cable damage within moments and worked through the night to try to restore services," the spokesperson said.

Customers from ISPs including iiNet, TPG, Internode, and Optus began reporting issues at about 5.00pm yesterday.

iTnews understands a 4WD became bogged in a remote part of the territory, between 25km and 50km south of Katherine.

ABC reported the 4WD was a “maintenance truck” but this could not be independently verified at the time of publication.

An attempt to free the bogged 4WD using another vehicle caused the transmission cable to be severed.

It is understood the 4WD remains bogged over the original cable, and engineers will use an interim above-ground cable to get services restored.

Bitter sweet sort of deal this one .. Power went down last night thousands blacked out, 16 hours later still out, Soo drag out the trusty Waeco and new Ridge Ryder 150W solar panel blanket  [ Home Freezer contents starting to defrost ] Jerry rig a set small spare battery to the fridge, Set up the panels  and oops hooked up the solar to the load side of the regulator [ Bloody plugs are all the same ] and presto not so nice Hot electrical smells [ Oh well the RR reg was going to be replaced anyway ]  ..
Dragged out the old folding panels to keep the small battery topped up  .  Waeco went from Ambient temp to -10 in just on 35 minutes, Pretty happy with that,   just started to unload the home freezer and bingo power comes back on . Yeyyyyy .

Agree 1000%
The FBI hacked a network hidden on the "darknet" and then used malware to hack the computers directly involved in the network of perverts. I really don't see a civil liberty breach at all. They are just doing their job. They weren't just checking out  Joe Average's google searches.
 
Take the perverts down. They don't give a rats about the kids lives they destroy. They have no rights.

Sitting down for lunch now, I did an hours work to speed the other guys up, but if it's raining after lunch like it is now, I'll be going home. This morning was a learning session for the other 2 guys I work with, they were thrown in the deep end to work out roof trusses on their own (I gave some guidance before they started though), I got paid to be here just incase. Done hundreds of trusses over the years and i don't need the practice, but these guys have little to no experience in roof building, so need to learn.

Walked inside a house today that we are starting a reno on, sparky was here previous moving wires etc for us to do the job. First thing I notice is an annoying beeping noise...ohh that has something to do with what the sparky did yesterday I am told by our apprentice, which in turn is what the home owner had said to him yesterday. Seriously...do people not know what happens when their smoke alarm battery goes flat?...lol....I grabbed a ladder and changed the battery over for the home owner, wow look at that, no more annoying beep. I just had to laugh at the fact they both said it was the sparky's  fault that beep was happening...clueless...lol.

First thing I notice is an annoying beeping noise...

Many years ago, I was working in a security control room.

Got a call at 3.00am Saturday morning, people complaining that their alarm system is beeping & disturbing their sleep, so how do they stop it ???

Check what system they've got, grab the book & go to the troubleshooting page. OK, what's it doing? 1 beep every 20 seconds. Hmmm, 1 beep per minute; 2 every 5 sec's; triple every 20 - sorry, no, 1 beep every 20 seconds isn't a designated fault code, so I can't help you ??? All I can do is list it as a fault & get one of our tech's to come out & check it, but that won't be till Monday at the earliest, depending on their other jobs.

Well that's not good enough & this jerk started ranting about the lousy service we provide, they won't get a wink of sleep for 3 days & it's our fault (& I'd like to point out that I'm awake at 3am listening to you carry on about lack of sleep! >:(), he'd be ringing Robert (owner of the company) first thing in the morning to complain & so on, before slamming the phone down >:(

Rang back 10 minutes later, very quiet & contrite, to cancel the tech visit, as he'd stormed away from the security panel & been standing right under the smoke detector when it beeped... >:D

bloody things always seem to start beeping in the wee hours of the morning to...have been standing on a chair half asleep many a time trying to reach up and change the battery in a smoke alarm that's starting going off.

Change ya clocks, change ya smoke alarm Batteries.

I was always told to do it on April fools day.
And I guess that makes sense 'caus I recon smoke alarms are like printer cartridges, they have a programmed life and are set to start that annoying beep regardless of how flat the batteries actually are.

Don't forget, Smoke Alarms don't last forever either.
They advise to renew them every 10 years, whether they're playing up or not.

Talking to one of the long term workers up here (NT) about camping spots. He gave me directions to one of his favourite spots so I drove over to check it out the other day. Bloody magic.
The best part is that being on Aboriginal land, other than the locals no-one goes there. Apparently the locals do a bit of fishing there but 90% of the time it’s deserted. No rubbish, no people, great scenery, camp spot right on the bank - what more could you ask for ?
So for the “this thread is worthless without pictures” brigade -

Having the minister of war & finance approve costs for a new 7x5 general purpose trailer. To replace the aging 6x4.  Even though it will cost almost 4 times the amount the 6x4 cost new....

You're not wrong.  2nd hand prices are insane too.  6 year old brand X aussie made 8x5 tandem and their asking 2K.  Check out the brands website and they're  $2200 new....
Or $600 for an unregistered 6x4 with a rusted floor and no lights.

Deposit paid today on my brand spanker Towpax trailer.
7x5.
16 inch sides.
Front & rear gates.
50mm shs chassis.
100x50 rhs 150mm drawbar.
2.1mm checker plate floor, flipped upside down.
Full length tie down rails to sides and ends.
Skid rails from the lower guard to chassis.
45mm 1400kg axle.
Towpax (oz made) 60mm wide. 8mm military wrap slipper springs.
Alko 10" electric brakes.
Alko mechanical override coupling.
Alko swing up jockey wheel.
All in hammer tone blue.
Rolling in 195R 15" LT tyres.

No change out of $2300!  A bit more than the missus wanted me to spend....

I priced the materials to build it myself and came to around $1600. 2-3 week wait to have it built compared to me taking 6 months....

What was the moto on their old stickers.

Relax It's a Towpax.

Tony the owner (who would be 70+) gave me the full workshop tour proudly showing off the welding quality.

It was another $650 for gal. Couldn't do it for a few reasons.
I'm already $800 over budget.
I really wanted blue. (More $$ for gal + paint).
I bought my current 6x4 19 years ago. The front 100mm of the checker plate floor has rusted out, thanks to continually leaving leftover soil/multch/garden waste in it nose down out in the weather. The chassis is perfect and everything else is just surface rust.
I'm confident I'll get 30 years from this one, if I keep it clean and repaint it a couple of times.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170513/2725792ac35c3798d9bd61f6ceb76898.jpg)

My fav band of all time... cant count the amount of times we saw em in the 80/90's.. :D
... but they are not the Spys of old... and why they are free.

Blox the tall lead singer is a chef at Newcastle Hospital these days,
Cliff Grigg the drummer is an artist, and has been since the 90s..
The only original member is Mike Weiley... that's if hes over his grog issues... Sadly the sound is nothing like the band of old...
like INXS after they had that dude from some reality show as lead singer.. You just cant replace some people.

sent a message to mazda australia, with photos and they immediately took my feedback on-board and even though the bullbar was out of the factory warranty period, provided a brand new, current model bullbar, with the only cost being fitting.

i even get to keep the old bar to try and sell or dispose of...

Not distroying my rig's 12vt electrical system. ...   

Triton battery finally died after 4 years of loyal service ....   So today I had booked in to get a sealed 3yr warranty 820 CCA unit ($169);  when the old battery died in a carpark ....

So no worries me thinks - I drag out the jumpers - hook them up to the aux batteries; (one either side of the truck behind the cab).

These are 2 x 6vt Full Rivers interconnected making 12vts...   But what goes where??    I know its red on red etc -- but the problem is that Springers had this piece of red on one of the terminals  (which I naturally thought was positive)....

And if course the batteries themselves had no markings that I could see that indicated +  and  -  .....    grrrr  ....

And the second photo is of the other red wire (### from the battery on the other side of the truck);  .... which is fused; and which I thought was just the connector cable between the two batteries. ..   (I don't know much about all this, ok..).

So sadly I hook up everything in reverse polarity  #### those HD jumper cables getting quite hot....   some sparks flying off everything I touch with the aligator clips. ....   OMG !!!    Even the tow pro knob on the dash lits up in blue for some reason; .. (like I had the CT hooked up....).

In the process I even manage to cook a bit of the aligator clip....   (see pic).

I wish Springers had used green or blue on that first terminal THAT IS ACTUALLY THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL. .......   anything but RED thank you !!   (see first pic)..

But thankfully everything that I can tell seems to be still functioning with the electrics..

am i wrong, or do your batteries in the pic have a red 'ring' at the bottom of the positive terminal?  i have batteries with a similar setup...

i assume that there is a black 'ring' at the bottom of the negative terminals...

that's how i would identify if positive or negative...

Yep i smiled.
Watched a lovely Rolls (the car) loaded onto a truck.
But.
Step 1.
Forklift onto flat bed ridged.
Step 2.
Reverse ridged upto fridge van,  yes fridge van.
Step 3.
Drive Rolls into fridge van.
Step 4.
I didn't see but a pretty good hunch.
Leave window open so you can climb out, as no chance of opening door.
Step 5 .
Hunch also.
Tying down near in possible as.
     A. Its so close to the fridge walls you cannot get down the sides.
    B. The inside of a fridge van are not designed for this style of freight..

All this done as a Car carrier just sits there an watches...

All to save I bet $200. A 'common' carrier will NOT have effective insurance if its get damaged in transit, . But hey take the risk on a very sweet neat looking  Rolls.   

Makes me smile every time in amusement  at what 1 will do just to save a buck.

"I know you have issues but what is really stressing me out at the moment is I can't decide if I head west first to Longreach & then turn north till I hit the Gulf & turn west again or just head north up the coast first when I go for a bit of a drive in June."

This guy broke the Pikes Peak record..   I'm no bike rider But Crist it looks to be  a bad handling bike, still reckon they should get the Isle of Man TT crazies to have a go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTiTPAusog4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTiTPAusog4)

Not distroying my rig's 12vt electrical system. ...   

Triton battery finally died after 4 years of loyal service ....   So today I had booked in to get a sealed 3yr warranty 820 CCA unit ($169);  when the old battery died in a carpark ....

So no worries me thinks - I drag out the jumpers - hook them up to the aux batteries; (one either side of the truck behind the cab).

These are 2 x 6vt Full Rivers interconnected making 12vts...   But what goes where??    I know its red on red etc -- but the problem is that Springers had this piece of red on one of the terminals  (which I naturally thought was positive)....

And if course the batteries themselves had no markings that I could see that indicated +  and  -  .....    grrrr  ....

And the second photo is of the other red wire (### from the battery on the other side of the truck);  .... which is fused; and which I thought was just the connector cable between the two batteries. ..   (I don't know much about all this, ok..).

So sadly I hook up everything in reverse polarity  #### those HD jumper cables getting quite hot....   some sparks flying off everything I touch with the aligator clips. ....   OMG !!!    Even the tow pro knob on the dash lits up in blue for some reason; .. (like I had the CT hooked up....).

In the process I even manage to cook a bit of the aligator clip....   (see pic).

I wish Springers had used green or blue on that first terminal THAT IS ACTUALLY THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL. .......   anything but RED thank you !!   (see first pic)..

But thankfully everything that I can tell seems to be still functioning with the electrics

I'm no expert in 12 volt wiring but I though that to wire 2 6 volt batteries to create 1 12 volt battery requires a wire from 1 positive terminal of battery A to 1 negative terminal of battery B. The negative terminal of battery A becomes your earth and positive terminal of battery B remains as you positive power terminal . It appears that Springers have correctly done that and correctly used a red positive marking on the cable interconnecting the batteries as it conductive of a power feed.
I agree with others that the fullriver battery has a red and black base plate on terminal and a + and - stamped in case.
But then again I'm just a dumb plumber

Managed to fix my daughter's old MacBook after she damaged it at school - she's not sure (or not telling) what actually happened but turns out it was a buggered $25 internal HDD cable. I learnt a few things through the repair process though:
1. Whilst not everyone likes Apple the service at their Apple Store in Chermside QLD was first class. I had a problem with the screen on my 1yo MacBook and took along the buggered MacBook as well.  They replaced the screen on my MacBook in 5 days and diagnosed the drive was faulty on the old MacBook in 5 mins flat. They tried to reseat the cable but that didn't work so assumed the drive itself was buggered.  Quoted $350+ to fix but the young fella told me I could by a 2.5"drive for much less and replace it myself. He even suggested upgrading it with a solid state drive instead.
2. If you have a similar problem, before replacing the HDD, you should check the cable (probably not an option on the latest MacBooks).  I tried a different HDD first but still no luck.  A quick web search led me to think the cable might be buggered so I ordered one through Ebay. You can even put your old HDD in an external case and try connecting it using USB to see if it is really buggered.
3. You can install a fully working version of Mac OS on either a USB stick or an external HDD (using internet recovery mode) and boot using this. You can then do everything you would normally do but the MacBook will run slower than normal (although not noticeable when browsing the web).  So if you're away from home and your HDD gives up the ghost this can get you by until you can get a permanent repair.

Sorry, wasn't today, or yesterday.
On Sunday our 4wd Club, Thanks to a life long member, this is his 18th year organizing this(well this year a couple of us thought we would take the reins), In Grafton there is an institution, locally know are "The Cowper Home for Kids".
This is where kids that have not had a good start in life, End up.
These kids are the result of broken marriages, violence, alcohol and drugs.
Alan for the last 17 years has put opened up his wallet and asked for local businesses to donate a cake, Sausages, drinks & ice cream to give these kids a day out.
This year, as mentioned a few of us took the organizing of this away from Alan, but he got to map out and choose the tracks and points of interest along the way.
I will in time post int he trips, Track log files and way points of the trip into the Chelundi State forest from Dalmorton.
It was a long day, from leaving home(7am), meeting other club members, to picking the kids + their carers, heading up into the Boyd River area, stopping for Smoko, Lunch, and points of interest on the way, back to Grafton to have the kids saying thank you, then home,
It was a 12 hour day, and I wouldn't swag the smiles on these kids faces,   ;D

There is something special about giving,  ;D ;D

Sorry can't post pictures, it a privacy thing with the kids not to be identified, I respect it.
But I will post Vid of the tracks in the coming days when I find time.

Driving home in the afternoon after positive meetings and solving a few issues, listened to awesome Aussie music the whole way home, singing away to all my favorite tunes.
Then get to the lookout on the last leg of the journey right on the 'golden hour', sun setting behind the hills, our little valley shining in all it's glory and the whole sunny coast spread across the horizon.

Had to pull up, take in the view for a while and think about how good life is sometimes.....

put mud on the roads here in Brisbane (by vehicle or run off) and the council will happily fine you for doing so, that's why you have to install silt fences and gravel wash down areas on jobsites. Become a repeat offender and the fines start to get pretty exxy very quickly...they love driving around places they have previously fined for silt run off after it rains, hoping to dish out another bigger fine.

An FJ Cruiser, big muddies lifted with all the fruit on it and graphics all over it looking like mud and it says were seeing Australia
They come flying in, pull up near the sign board, take a photo and off they go as fast as they came in
Yep really seeing Australia.
That made me smile.
Glad we get to stop and smell the roses

Cheers Glen

It'll still take me 2 or 3 weeks before I fit it anyway.

I'm doing the fitment of the heads, and all the crap like sump and stuff here plus, I want to replace some control arm bushes before the install happens.

At the caravan show in Brisbane on Saturday; I was doing the rounds including what was on offer over at Market Direct Campers...

I recall reading somewhere that MDC is doing more of the assembly in Australia; of their made in China caravans and CTs....?

So it was funny, (to me), to see several of their caravans at the Show emphasizing the "made in China" thing staring straight back at you, when you glimpsed through the door of the vans...

Heaps of stuff is of course made in the PRC, but the local van and ct manufacturers really try to emphasize the "designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions" thing ....  so MDC dropping the ball like this - was a real  LOL  moment..

Saw laminate strips peeling off two high cost, Aussie made vans at last years show.  MDC are no different to the "majority" of van manaufacturers when it comes to quality control.  If in doubt about my use of the word "majority" check the lemon list of van maufacturers on the FB group.

In its defense and given its location at the door entry. A few hundred careless punters have probably brushed past that door edge during the show.

Doesn't take much for some edge banding to come off. Oz made or imported joinery.

Why take off the made in China label?  And on a curtain? You make me laugh!  And who uses LOL anymore?

MDC do not attempt to hide the fact that their hybrids are made in China and assembled/finished in Australia unlike some other brands.

Yes, poor attention to detail by their sales staff, but they may have just been run off their feet selling  :D

I always knew the quality control on a lot of the imports was a little lacking and thought the locally made products were a lot better. What has made me question this a little is that after all the Aussie made manufacturers that have recently gone bust, there seems to be plenty of people coming out of the woodwork with issues that will now no longer be able to be fixed under warranty.

MDC do not attempt to hide the fact that their hybrids are made in China and assembled/finished in Australia unlike some other brands.   

##(So they have "Made in China" signage/labels on the A frame then?) I am guessing nah ##

## Yes, and that WAS actually my (only) point in my original post. .....    (yawning)..  ##

but they may have just been run off their feet selling   :D

### Don't kid ya self; .. (that would not be an excuse for any seller 'to feature' laminate falling off doors).
But in reply:-
a) MDC are not busy out there at the Show 24/7; 
b) they were not too busy when I was visiting; 
c) how about they to do the snip and bog before trading commencing for the day..  ###

Nope, cheap import is all the budget would stretch for so that made it easier for me to choose. Parents have a swan though, the general impression is as you say the fit and finish is done to a budget more than a standard, but most of the structural side of things seems to be adequate.

Spent the weekend in the big smoke(Sydney).
3 mates with our wives and a couple of kids tagging along(Fysh & I were kid free ), attended a mates 50th. Flew down on the same plan.
While sitting waiting for our plane at Ballina Airport, a tall bloke stands next to me, bugger me, it's a mate I haven't seen for over 25 years.
He & his wife were heading to  family do.
Small world.

The three of us have been mates for over 35 years, played footy, surfed, got drunk together, share good & bad times.
We've only caught up at weddings, funerals or if have been in our home town at the same time and heard through family that the others were in town.
A couple of funny nights, great memories, visited Darling Harbour for the Vivid festival Sunday night. Did the tour around Sydney in the open top double decker, a great lunch and a few beers at Bondi beach.

Somedays, ya just gotta think 'happy days'

Jamie, not 100% sure but Scarps mentioned at “Mansfield” he was in a little trouble with the people he works for around “the things he used to sell” from what I have heard from him frequenting the “caravan forums” he may be in a little trouble!!!!

Doing a bit of a stocktake today.
Now I'm smiling at the bloody idiots that stole almost $2000.00 worth of battery chargers, pure sine wave inverters and Dc to Dc chargers.
Well the empty boxes anyway.
Didn't they notice the boxes were exceptionally light?
Didn't see the signs saying that the stock is kept behind the registers?
Idiots still amaze me...

Put something rooted in there with a note for them for when they open it at home.

Do you get any dead units being returned under warranty?

Make note of the dead serial numbers, leave them in the appropriate box & wait for these dick heads to return them & complain that it didn't work (& they probably will!). Apologise profusely, promise to get it fixed ASAP, get their name & address & :police: >:D

How did it go Keith

GG

Very disappointed on Saturday night,    :'( not 1 swagger turned up for the party  ::) had music,dancing girls, grog, you name it, it was there, very sad.

The operation would appear to have been a success , but too early to tell from my side yet, I came home on Monday, with some med's for the pain, which has it's moments  :-\ , but I don't think I'll be hitting the dance floor for a few weeks yet  :D
cheers Keith  :cheers:

If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar.

Update on the concert last night.
They are awesome live. Played for 3 hrs. Stage show and lighting is 1st class. They did Animals and Wish You Were Here, had a 20 min intermission, and then did Dark Side of the Moon and finished off with a few later songs. They're just kicking off a tour of Oz, so as Molly would say, do yourself a favour, you wont be disappointed.

I was mowing today with one of the self propelled Masports and it started drive odd.

Looked down, and the R/R wheel was at a 45' angle. I just kept plugging along and yep, 20 metres later, the wheel fell with only 4 swipes of the back yard left.

Grabbed hold of the bars by the scruff, and finished the job on 3 wheels. Made the friggin turns hard to do quickly.  ???

Ordered the parts, made a makeshift repair with some threaded bar and 2 locknuts and we're going again. I had to, the other hand mower has no gearbox in it. The parts for that are due to arrive any minute with my courier neighbour.

Where there's a will, there's a way....

I lived in Malaysia for a couple of years in the early 80's. Some of the stories in the local paper were really funny. I remember one story with the headings literally reading "Missed by a C hair". And some of the photos of accident scenes were a bit off putting. One story of someone who committed suicide by jumping off the end of the Penang Bridge, while it was still under construction, had a picture of just the unfortunate persons legs sticking out of the mud.  ???

and seeing Andrew Johns fuming after the game in the post match wrap up, and hearing Gus Gould bleat on before the game about last night being the start of the NSW dynasty starting tonight.....how about you lot win a series to start with before going on about dynasty, then win a few more in a row and earn the right to use that phrase. NSW threw the win away last night, they should of won....the lack of direction in the second half from their halves cost them big time, they just don't have the cool heads, experience and belief that guys like Smith, Cronk, Thurston and Slater have. If NSW play the full 80 minutes next game they are a real chance of winning up here, but geez they've made it hard for themselves now.

Finaly found a dream come true .. Thank you internet .. Even though there blanks Ive always wanted to see and hear a WW2 Warbird fire its guns in the air  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO3gE7VA0Hs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO3gE7VA0Hs) Even better its a Kittyhawk ..
CRANK UP THE SOUND and enjoy ..

A bit different to the F/A-18 gatling gun, which sounds more like a fart when it fires at a rate of 6,000 rounds per minute. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytZ3eaO9YhY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytZ3eaO9YhY)

Years back on the Demolition range at Singleton, we had to get into the safety bunkers several times a day,  So the  RSAF [ Singaporan ]  A4 Skyhawks could do  live fire gun runs over the top of us to an adjoining range .. Lots of red hot cannon shell casings and link confetti fell over us ..  8)
Made us Dig's appreciate the  power of strafing attacks .

The June 2017 security update for Outlook has caused some attachments to be blocked.

Specifically, any attachment that has two full-stops or an exclamation mark in front of its file extension will be blocked. This is a flaw in the update and Microsoft is aware of this issue,  but
seeing as this was just released, a fix might not come soon.

We can uninstall the update - this will allow the attachments to be opened, but opens up the security risks the update was trying to close.

If this happens to you, I recommend asking the sender to rename their attachment to remove these characters in the file name, and re-send.

1) Getting a sympathy vote from the local steel supplier... 2nd time in 2 days I've been in there to correct my cock ups... Only a bit of off cut, but it was free
2) Getting the battery box nearly sorted - 3 holes left to drill, and one bit to remove and re-route cabling from so that it doesn't pull the lid down when you open it up. I'll do some pictures tomorrow, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
3) Went out to a mate's property to play with the 4 week old Collie x Kelpie pups... still not sure if we're getting one - wife was keen, but is now not so sure. I'm not fussed as I don't get excited until I know something is happening.

3.5 T and 240 kg ball load!

Put that on the back of your average medium sized 4WD and with
your partner a full tank of fuel will leave about enough capacity to carry a 6 pack LOL.

Also according to literature on the Gibb, Vans are not recommended and dual axle
units are not allowed in most areas.

As far as I'm aware, the Bungles is the only place in the country that specifically excludes tandem axles.
Happy to learn of others though. Would be handy when planning future trips.

Plenty of vans on the GRR when we were there in 2015.

Made peace with my trespassing neighbor yesterday. :)

I'd been uneasy after catching him collecting firewood on my property about 6 months ago. Every noise I heard from up the back of the block had me raging inside and thinking about putting solid fence and private property signs on their boundary line.

But a chance encounter yesterday afternoon has put my mind at ease.

Nah, just decent people fed the wrong information from arrogant previous owners of their place and their current neighbors on that side of the valley. I have no reason not to believe them when they say they where told that my land was a council reserve. Or that in the weeks after I confronted them they came around to my front door to apologize and introduce them selves, but we weren't home.

I'm just glad everyone is on the same page, now I can relax about the whole situation and say g'day and have a chat with all of my neighbors. Exactly how it should be. :)

Decided to wind up the automatic thing on the Drive section of the SMH website:

Drive: Well hello! Sorry to bother you, I hope you're enjoying our articles and reviews! I thought I'd ask... Are you considering upgrading your current set of wheels?

Me: Yes, I'd quite like some new 31x10.5R15s

Drive: I'll be glad to help!

Me: I'm looking for something with an all terrain pattern for around the $200 each mark

Drive: Now is a great time to buy as there are some great End Of Financial Year Specials on. May I ask for your first name and postcode please?

Me: is that for wheels/tyres, as I've not seen any

Drive: I see

Me: Well, you did ask if I was looking for new wheels, and I am. If you were asking about a new car, then ask that

Drive: Got that. We don't sell tyres or any. We only sell cars in our web site.

Me: So why ask "Are you considering upgrading your current set of wheels?"

Drive: Since Drive is an automotive news and reviews website only, we are unable to assist in vehicle servicing and parts/accessories purchases.
We're asking if you're interested to upgrade you're car or maybe purchase a different model.
Are you interested to buy a car with us?

I left the chat then... there was no more fun to be had with them at that point...

I think we should all have a game with them to see what answers we can get out of them...

The Americas Cup. 
Watching little old New Zealand beat 'Team USA' to win the Auld Mug. 


Although it looked more a Trans Tasman race. NZ boat was skippered by an Aussie.  The USA helmsman is also an Aussie and the USA team is made up of 90% Kiwis and Aussies.

I'd had enough of the lazy Australia Post contractor never delivering parcels to my house. They'd drop a note in my letter box 2 days after my goods arrived to go and collect it from the post office.
My tracking notices always said no one was home, even when I'm home everyday and for the last one was weeding the garden along the front driveway at exactly the time they said they tried to deliver.

So I thought I'd be a smartass when filling out the delivery instructions on my last online order.
I had to smile when I saw the box was actually delivered to me for a change, then I noticed what the supplier printed on the sticker and laughed out loud....

And hence why they are going to bring in a stricter nationality check for the next one.

So glad that the Kiwi's won after they choked the last one, just a shame I couldn't make the time to get out to Bermuda this time, although with family involved running it - another Auckland cup I won't miss....

I think everyone is expecting NZ (and Italy) to make massive changes from Larry Ellison's 'Vision'.

Apparently the Italian syndicate pumped over 30 million into the NZ team. On the condition, if NZ win they're nominated as Challenger of Record and racing reverts back to monohulls.


Which is a shame, cause I love the current cats.   Just not the fact 4 of the 6 crew are only there to pump oil.

Count me in for Auckland too!

Yeah have seen the road closures. They seem to be at the bottom part of the Birsdville Track and Strezlecki Track. We are coming in from Windorah (Qld) and no closures at all that way. After the gig we are looking to go via Cordillo to Innaminka which is open at the moment. See when we get there I guess. Things could change quickly out there.

compulsory savings plan...if you don't have it you don't spend it, then get a nice refund at the end of the financial year. I usually get a decent refund each year, yes I could pay less tax and get a touch more each week to play with, but I'd likely waste it...for me I like the fact I get it in one go and it's a big enough amount to do something I want to with it.

for me I like the fact I get it in one go and it's a big enough amount to do something I want to with it.
yea i'd agree with that

we actually bought / paid the deposit for our house with one of my tax refund cheques...had been saying for several years we were going to buy a house at that stage, but kept going out partying and holidaying with the money we should have been saving. When I did my return that year and saw what I was getting back, it was decision made...best thing we ever did with our tax return money...lol.

Truck packed with ten tons of gear,  somehow fitted in. Ready for an early AM off in the morning and the Obligatory " Are you sure you have packed everything you want "  three warnings to the girls  as we leave the drive way and a final " We go with What we've got, What we haven't We Go Without " .. as we hit the Highway turn off .
Then its points North to Tin Can Bay to annoy Mr n Mrs Jeepers for a day or two then Fraser and the Concrete Camper for ten ..  ;D

Two things.

1. Buying a 1st car for daughter No 2 today that far exceeded my expectations for a 13 year old vehicle; and

2. Watching last Sunday's taped episode of legend Russell Coight's All Aussie Adventurer.

Could have been three but i couldn't convince anyone to sit in the backyard around a fire tonight. They reckon it is too cold  ???

Oh well two out three ain't bad (as the song goes) ;D

No mate one of the older ones. I think it is on Sunday nights.

This was the one where he made the camp chair out of a sharpened peg and slice of timber and of course as he got up to get a beer the timber fell off and he sat back down on the sharpened peg. ;D

Other highlights included Lee Kernaghan running away from him, he set the calf on fire while branding it, axe head fell off an catapulted into the air and brained him on the way down and he ran over a beast in the bull catcher vehicle to name a few

You know what's coming but he sells it so well.

An old 9Kg gas bottle was the start .  Flushed the gas out of the can with 2 refills of water .
Chop the can up to create the  " Pig " . Having cut the can to the required shape  , l am a bit concerned that it is drawing too well . Should there be 4Ft of flame roaring out the chimney  ??? l might have to put a damper in the flue  to slow the burn down a bit    :D

From all accounts it would seem so. We wanted a 800kg load capacity and as we had the van built to our requirements, it should have been a no-brainer. But it still took multiple calls and threats of not taking the van if it didn't meet this. Was confident it did, hence not rushing off to the weigh bridge.

Fantastic afternoon yesterday (ab)using the 4Runner getting fire wood for the fire... dragged a few loads (5) across the paddock to the burn pit. Fire was nice and warm (strange that...) but the esky had ice ON it just a couple of metres back from the fire circle...

Today was going out to a friends bush block for the day - met them as they pulled out of their driveway at 11am and finally got back into town at 6pm. Loaded up a HJ75 that was out there that's going to be their lass's first car - gives her 2 months to get it ready for the road. Much fun otherwise with fixing things, chopping things and generally encouraging the kids to be kids.

4Runner won on the return leg as well, one less skippy after a direct centre of bar hit, under the car and no damage...

That's basically what ours is - the work I've done on the camper that we've scrimped and scraped to do over the last 12months, will be covered by what I think I'll get back.

Did that many times...
Funniest was a call out middle of night to smoke alarm..
given the address by DFCO at the other end of town...
Drove off arrived in a blaze of glory to only see few lights on in the house no sign of fire or smoke... but we were there and had to investigate.
Bashing on front door woke up home owners who were rather unimpressed and gave us directions to sex and travel... neighbours werent happy either and were now all awake...

Drove back to station to be stopped by little old lady across road from station who was the actual caller...
I went in changed all the batteries in all her smoke alarms for her and by then the boys had already packed the truck away, done paperwork, and opened fridge :D

She bought us scones on the Sunday (our station day) and said thanks..

I find myself trying out a new line of work.
It has me on Scaff for most of the day in the burbs.
Today I got to spy an entertaining circus in the back yard nearby.
A foreign family were in the back yard, 5 adults, a garden variety garden hose is in use for something I couldn't figure out, it took the 3 blokes to connect and use it following a 5 min discussion.
Then....
When they finished 2 mins later they yelled in some jibberish at 2 women who promptly came outside from the house with a bucket of soapy water and under strict supervision proceeded to clean the outside of the hose whilst the 3 blokes tried to coil it back up the same as it was out of the pack.
Sadly, with regret, I failed to see how the hose came out of the pack or roll.
I love our multiculturalism.   ;D

Given all the coverage in the press about electricity prices and bills, I'm quite happy with the one I got in the mail today.... $230 for the quarter (and one $99 gas cylinder) for 2 of us. In terms of energy use, 464kWh is the total energy use.

It also had the comparison to the average household - we use an average of 4.9kWh, which is 54% of the average for a single person household... which is about normal in terms of our energy use. Now the challenge is to shave it off a little bit more...

fixing a footy game is not like match-fixing in cricket, or even what has already been done in league...

the grand conspiracy of SOO being fixed for revenue purposes is difficult to believe, mainly because of how many people would have to be involved in the ruse...

players, coaches, trainers, administration, referees, sponsors...

too many to keep quiet...

and if the fix was on, do you honestly think that the powers that be would want QLD winning 11 out of 12 series?

close series/games is what brings more excitement and punter interest...

... about the same to keep quiet as fixing a normal game.... and that's happened -
World cup dive ball games have been fixed, cricket, car racing, bike racing, you name it... 
And there wouldn't need to be as many involved as you think to change the result in most sports... little things like the interesting kicking game by Qld that nobody could understand..

Remember Cricket/NRL/AFL/Shitball/RU are only entertainment (business) these days, its not sport.

you were talking about fixing SOO for the NRL's own gain (ie: more revenue in their coffers), not individuals (as per your examples).  that's a different beast altogether.

it's sport for me.  they still have to have the games.  if you wish to believe that the fix is on for sport nowadays, then watch something else.

yes, it's entertainment value, but it is still sport at heart, IMO.

i'm not naive enough to believe that money doesn't rule all, but i like to believe that most of what we watch is still above board.

Get a weekly e-mail newsletter, sponsored by Al-Ko, about CT's, caravans etc.

Saw this the other day:

"Q: WHAT IS THE BEST SOLAR SETUP?

A: An RV system has to have at least 500W otherwise it won’t be enough to run the fridge. But, ideally, five 200W 12V solar panels, or as many as possible, would be recommended.

A 1kW system would pump out about 50-55A in the best case scenario. The average sunlight in a day ranges from 4-6 hours, depending on the season, so if the panels are fully exposed to the sun all day, you could get 200-300Ah of energy. You need to work out your total energy consumption and design the solar system accordingly."

You need "at least 500W" to run the fridge :o, & ideally 1kW, providing 2-300Ah ::)

So, I guess they must be running a full-size 500l fridge, with a pigeon-pair 500l freezer, together with a full electric stove top & oven, microwave, coffee maker, exhaust fans, air-conditioner, electric hot-water system, hair dryer, washing machine, dryer... ???

On the return barge  from Fraser yesterday, waiting to cast off from Hook point, hanging over the side watching schools of fish I spotted a pale mauve transparent  small oval shaped jelly fish with  super bright rainbow coloured lines of light flashing along its length [ About 100mm long ] . Just found out what type it was . Had never heard of them before "  Comb jelly or  sea Walnut ".

Had to smile at the poor advertising for some sort of club membership I saw on the weekend.
This guy must be in a club advertising for new members, and it was in the caravan park behind the Northern servo in Gin Gin.
He must be pretty high in the organisation, overweight, reasonably unattractive, not real good in expressing himself and plays football.
This ad was in pencil at eye height above the urinal in the ablution block.
"Huge member with large girth. Big balls and a mushroom head. Meet at nine pm Friday"
I didn't see any club logo's so it seemed a bit vague. Unfortunately I can't get there at 9:00pm as we normally cruise through around midnight, but if the meet & greet is still running I will see whether it's a caravan or 4x4 club.

Got my permit to go into Koolpin Gorge  (Sth Kakado near Gunlom falls )..
Thur/Fri/Sat/Sun...
The permit is a nesserary evil but it was more about paper work then cost. Was actually quite cheap compared to the likes of Gunlom etc ($15 per night per person bit rich I think)
The permit helps regulate traffic flow, max of 40 people at a time, so it shouldn't be crowded..

And i have to add my plan is working,  as I get 3 day off every week we just keep chipping away at places like Kakado / Litchfield etc with 3 day get aways. Just focus on 1 area each get away, easy and simple. Might take a yr or 3 to see it all but no need rushed it.

Our local council once again have gone against the wishes/petitions of the local ratepayers and have decided to pass a DA in Yamba that includes a set of Traffic lights at an insection that will now have a servo on one cnr.
What was needed was a roundabout with the flow of traffic in & out of Yamba and along a business strip.
A ratepayer FB group where there as been much heated debate about said Traffic Lights, a councilour has post about a wonderful day out they had out at one of the furthermost villages in our LGA and they are in need of infrastructure and services.
A member of the group who been very vocal and against the traffic lights, asked the question to the councilor that voted for the traffic lights if Ewingar would like a set of Traffic lights that others don't want?
(http://www.clarencecoastpropertymaintenance.com.au/images/smilies/pmsl.gif)
Yeah, I know a local running joke our council is when it comes to their failure to deliver for it ratepayers, but more than happy to spend money to help outside interests screw over local business.

Seeing a mate's 4 year old son's birthday present that he got from his grandparent's (mate's in-laws).

What would you dread your Scottish 4 yo getting from relatives?




















Yep, a set of bagpipes... Mate's father in law judges at some of the piping competitions in Scotland, so knows his stuff about piping... but for some reason his daughter couldn't get the reed to fit into the pipes, so I think grandchild and pipes will be sent together to the grandparents for a holiday!

 But if another Greens Senator forgets to fill out the form.

 Well there'd be 7 Greens Senators, doing bugger all.

Hearing a noticeable amount of rain for the first time since Mid July - and even then, we've had more in the last hour than we had on one of those days - and that might put us back to June to have got a similar amount. Last month we only had 16mm for the month...

Our tank is overflowing, but that's because it's just about unusable... just a bit too close to the unsealed road here, so the dust blows up and onto the roof to then get washed off into the tank. Luckily we're on town water as well, so use that.

Hillgrove's funny - it can be bone dry in town and piss wet out there, and vice versa. We've got friends out that way, just before Hillgrove.

Dust settles, we got used to it when we were on tank water when I was a kid (also later when I first got married). And nowadays you can fit a "first flush" device, so the first water off the roof is diverted, and doesn't go into the tank. I was more concerned when we found a huge furry dead toad in the tank.

I've been up a few SE Qld water towers in my time ( Picnic Pt., Woorim, Caboolture, Murgon, Park Ridge to name a few)  & every one had dead birds floating around in it!

With the Park Ridge tower, I was on top,peering down into the water through a hatch when my very expensive Suunto compass fell out of my shirt pocket and into the res. I retrieved it the following day with the aid of a mask and fins. Was a wee bit deeper than first thought and bloody cold. Probably because I was nude!

Got the shed finished yesterday, but got home too late from work to do anything (and we had 15mm of rain - so as much as last month!) but this morning we got the contents of the car port moved into it, along with boxes from elsewhere. Worked out to be a touch smaller internally than I'd hoped, but not the end of the world as everything still fitted in fine.

Next project is probably to make a better bike rack...

My kids have been on major trips since young and are seasoned travellers, road trips don't bother them.....my eldest daughter had been to Cape York and crossed The Simpson Desert by the time she was 8 years old  ;D
I'm sure if we had a snow holiday the kids would love it though, i used to go snow skiing for 2 weeks each year when i was in my 20's and had a great time doing so  8) Happy to be in snow in good sunny weather, you can have that windy and miserable stuff the news has been showing on the tv this morning though...lol

Gotta luv you Queenslanders, you live in your so called perfect weather (for you anyway) but spend your lives whining about everybody elses weather. The only time you go quiet is during cyclone season probably because your treading water because of the bloody floods.
Or is it you love fishing so much you just cant help casting away until you get another bite from a Victorian
You do have one thing going for you, a great rugby team, but thats probably because its half full of Storm players

I'm going off to hide now

I had some QLDers come into work yesterday compaining it was cold... it was fine, only due to get to -1 overnight... That's not cold really.


We're forecast 13 to 16* at the moment for day time, and a low of about -5. I don't think that's too bad really, not for winter anyway... Bonus is when it's cold we have clear sunny days, so there is some benefit. Also we don't have the rain that other places get - we had 16mm last month, but the other day we had that in a day... Overall we average about 800mm per year. Summer we hit mid 30's, so nice enought that it's not cold, but it's also not too hot to do anything.

C'mon Ed! -1° is cold but I suppose your environs are similar to the "Old Dart" in some respects ;D ;D

Ahhh well, you're all wrong. The pint is Murphys. Very much like Guinness as in it's a stout from one of those large cans with a widget of nitrogen in it. A very good leveller when the scotch is such a peaty rich flavour such as Laphroig. There was another bottle he had out. Some rarer Laphroigh. Wow. It made my eyes spin in my head.

Chilled water is acceptable. Why would you spend so much coin on any spirit then alter the flavour of it.   Coke/ mixers with cheap  session whiskey/whisky? Go for it.

I like it when they ask if you're looking for some new wheels.

I am actually, I'm after some 31x10.5R15 Dueller AT697s on some black 15x8 ET0 rims.

They get cross, but then I quote back to them that they were asking about new wheels...

Had an a hole flying his drone about the campgrounds yesterday arvo, was low, hovering over everyone's campsite. It is s big one, and was kicking up a lot of dust.
The call went out for "who's got a sling shot?", followed by with a few pharrk offs,.
The dill kept flying it and got real cocky too. Flew over the outherside of the creek to top of rocky cliff where it got snaged in a vine and crashed. Sadly it failed to tumble down into creek.
A large cheers went up across the camp grounds.

Don't suppose you were able to get some photo's / details Dave - drone, him, his rego ???

If you did, report him to CASA: https://www.casa.gov.au/aircraft/standard-page/reporting-unsafe-operation-drones-and-remotely-piloted-aircraft (https://www.casa.gov.au/aircraft/standard-page/reporting-unsafe-operation-drones-and-remotely-piloted-aircraft) :police:

& to those who will say he was only having fun, yes maybe so, but he was doing it illegally & dangerously - it's blokes like that doing the wrong thing that will lead to drones being banned or strictly licensed :'(

plenty of rules exist for these thing...we had someone on our local suburbs Facebook page wanting to help find his drone that had crashed and been lost by him...first thing I said to my wife is, he isn't allowed to even fly it in our suburb due to being within the no fly radius of a local aerodrone.

he's one of the most overrated players in the game IMO...yes he can have the odd great game, but the guy goes missing so often he doesn't deserve the big dollars he's on. Even his old Parra captain (Hindmarsh) reckons he was high maintenance the entire time he was there.

Went to the timber yard at lunch time to find some nice hardwood to finish off the front fence.
Got pretty warm walking around out there, had to stop and grab an ice cream on the way home to cool off a bit... ;D


I know we like to gloat about our absolutely stunning weather up here, but this is Ekka week.
It's winter, there is supposed to be howling westerlies right now and we should be in the peak of our flew season.
Sitting under a shady tree and enjoying the nice breeze and an ice cream on a 30 degree day just feels weird to me....

Reckon the beach exit would be carnage this arvo also, 3.30 p.m high tide and chopped up beach only to drive on. There was 3 vehicles bogged where the entry track hits the beach when I left at lunch time, can only imagine how many more got bogged there this arvo...lol

While it isn't what everyone does, and can take some time to get there. I think it is perfectly fine to smile while remembering someone who has passed. Death is a normal part of life, it happens to everyone. Why not remeber the good times, especially after someone has had a good long life. We can also be sad at the same time.

RIP Joanie.

What made me smile today. My 4yo. After three days of sickness that kept the him on the couch, barely saying a word, barely moving he comes down the stairs, big smile and says 'good morning daddy' in a cheery voice. He's back to normal, and will no doubt eat us out of house and home making up for 3 days of sipping water and a few bits of dry cereal.

Hey Rumpig , may I offer my condolences, some tough days ahead for your wife and family.
It is only a bit over a fortnight ago that we lost my mother, although we were fortunate to have spent time with mum until she passed which helped the grieving process. I suspect that your mother- inlaw passing was sudden and most likely unexpected, which will make the loss more devastating.
A lot to do in the coming week but a great time to pay tribute to life of Joanie, good luck

cheers Russ, very sorry to read of your mums passing, you'd obviously know what we are going through currently then. You are correct in suspecting this passing was sudden and totally unexpected, Joanie had zero health issues at all and was only 73 years old...her doctor actually remarked at the start of the year how good a condition she was in for her age. A non smoker, non drinker and healthy eater, we thought she had another 20 years to go atleast. We have absolutely no idea why she passed away yesterday, it has come as a total shock to everyone....we are all awaiting the results of an autopsy to try and understand what happened to her, the not knowing what happened is the hardest part for family to deal with currently.  There's been a few smiles and laughs today remembering some good times the family had with Joanie, it's amazing the things you recall at times like this.

Scottish Independence

    If Scotland gains its independence in the next possible referendum,
    the remainder of the United Kingdom will be known as the "Former United Kingdom", or FUK.

    In a bid to discourage the Scots from voting "Yes" in this referendum,
    Theresa May will campaign with the slogan "Vote NO, for FUK's sake."

    She feels Scottish voters will be able to relate to this.

A Scothish mate told me this.

I managed to phone and speak directly with the 2nd owner of our Cadillac in Los Angeles this morning. ( we purchased through a broker who handled everything)
Nice guy, and is happy to help me locate the 1st owner's wife or family if he can so we can have as much history as we can.

He's an “African American” and on the phone, he sounded to me like Samuel Jackson the actor, which I thought was pretty cool.  8)

Having said that, I don't recall ever speaking to an  “African American” before though either.

I now have an email address for him, so I can endeavor to hunt down some more information if its out there. Just call me Dick Tracey.

Visited 'drive' website looking at an article.
Pop up chat:"Hello! Just letting you know that we have access to exclusive pricing that can save you a lot of money! Can I ask which vehicle you are interested in?
Me: 1971 Mazda 1800
Pop up: "We appreciate your visit. But we will now answer other chats connected to the business. Thankyou and have a pleasant day"
 
Going to have to play some more!

Played again at lunch. When they asked what car I was interested in I put Kingswood, and they were glad to help me with a Chevy Kingswood. After a few more questions they were going to pass my details to the local Chevrolet rep to discuss good pricing on a Chevy Kingswood. Being an early 60's model, I suspect there aren't many left, and even less in Aus. I stuffed up and closed the page before I could go any further.

I know, small things, small minds etc.

As you guys know, I operate a maintenance business dealing mainly with real estates.
Thursday arvo I get a Work Order to fix the letter box stand with three letter boxes at a set of units.
Timber 3x3 hardwood post is in good nick, so I paint it with some Black jack, get a bag of Rapid set, 20 minutes digging, mix it up throw it in the hole, make sure it is plumb both ways. Jobs done.
nice & easy, the way it should be.
This morning I get another Work Order for the same unit, vanity spout has popped off.
New O ring, some silicone grease and the jobs done.
While talking to the tenant, I mention that I did the Letter box on Thursday for them, cause the work order was for unit 1.
He starts laughing  ;D
He tells that on Friday a handyman turned up looking at the letter box stand, so he wonders out to ask what's doing  ???
The other handyman tells him he is here to fix the letter box stand, that was reported as being broken.
So he brings a 60x60 metal post, a couple of bags of rapid set and spends an hour digging out My footing. ;D

You have to love the communication between property owners/real estates managing units.
We both get paid, the other guys worked a little harder for his coin, winner  :cup:

Whilst cleaning and sorting in the shed, came across some old detailed drawings of mine from 1997-2000.
9kg gas bottle tipped upside down (for the liquid gas) pulse jet engine  ;D, plus a few others and all associated items to make said projects.
Don't know why I didn't finish em back then ??? . Guess what I'll be building later in the year  :cup:

Plenty of pubs doing that now....we stayed out back of Shane Webcke's pub at Leyburn a few times for free years back... would arrive Friday and leave on Sunday, they just asked that one night you have a meal at the pub. There's a free camp that was all dirt pretty much a short walk away also, but here had green grass and hot showers and flushing toilets, all only a very short stagger from the beer garden. Gotta watch what some pubs are like though, Nindigully does free camping, but you don't want to be close to the pub on weekends and best to camp right down the back, the locals like a late night / party to all hours out there, so to close and you get bugger all sleep.

we went around the aouth island of NZ like that. Rocked up to a pub and asked what their special was bought a local beer if they had one then asked if we could park our "Sleepinabus" overnight.
All but one pub said yes. We did not eat or stay for a second beer at the pub that said no.

Not sure whether to put this under the bargain thread, cool old cars or here.
Have had my HZ Premier for nearly 20 years and have finally got it how I wanted. I retired 3 years ago and money has been a bit tight so it does not get registered very much.
With the new changes to the rules here in SA for club rego, I can now do it on mine.
Went in today to register and insure it.
$266 for 3 years. Can only use it for 90 days a year and have to keep a log book.
Pretty happy with that.

The Money fight.  Don't get too carried away with with how McGregor was doing.  Mayweather was well in control, or composed as McGregor called it.  All Mayweather had to do was win and he knows how to do that and deliver the entertainment.  Everyone says it was a great fight give McGregor credit for going 10 rounds.  Really Mayweather provided some entertainment for all and in the process to McGregor to a place he hasn't been before.  As a mate explained it, MMA is five, five minute rounds, 25 minutes, but how many MMA fights go that far.  Boxing, you have three minute rounds.  At the start of Round 10 McGregor had been going for 27 minutes, all new territory for him and at 1:05 minutes into the 10th Round the Ref stepped in and stopped the fight as McGregor was dead on his feet after 28 minutes and 5 seconds.   Tell me Mayweather did have that all planned.

Basically mayweather was the smarter of the 2. You knew Conner was gonna come out all guns blazing the first 2 rounds mayweather only threw a dozen punches.

Saw him working on Monday, good to watch, though I think the police were getting nervous when I was driving past, too many drivers were looking at the chopper and not where they were driving!

Yeah, apparently there was a three car pileup there yesterday sometime.
I pulled over for a bit. Was much more interesting than going to work.

We got the finished photos and paid up the rest of the cash. DH picks up our new van in about a weeks time.

Pretty exciting getting a van considering we've had a few different campers even tents and a swag in the meantime.
But it makes me feel old when I consider we're moving to the caravan stage lol.

Mind you when we first started our life together we brought an old 16ft van which we lived in for a few years :) so in some ways it's full circle, although the old van wasn't really fit for travelling that much and still remember the day when we drove it to the tip haha.

Don't know if I will get a chance for photos during the event. Talking to people who worked at the Kyneton event at times had people 3 or 4 deep watching.

I will be doing one like the one in the centre of the photo. Excuse the photo bombing hound.

Localy we used to unofficially use  Burringbar range south of  Murwillumbah used to be a nice run at times, Same for the section from Mudgeeraba up to Springbrook,  except for the boys in blue and traffic   :angel:  ;D

A new world record has been set for carrying mugs of beer in southeastern Germany.

In Bavaria, which is also home to Oktoberfest, the world's biggest beer festival, Oliver Struempfel cradled 31 beer-filled tankards stacked up in two tiers, walked 40 meters and then set them down.

But two tipped over at the last minute, so that the record is 29 jugs, or more than 69 kg (152 lb) of beer and glass.

"I first did 27, because I wanted to be sure and then at the end I said, 'Let's add another one and get over 30'," Struempfel said. "Unfortunately it didn't quite work, but having managed to put 29 down ... I think it's amazing."

Worst I can think of:
Couple on a date in snow country. Driving back from dinner on a quiet road she is busting for a pee. But the road has no petrol stations for a toilet, so they stop and she does her business behind the car. Because of snow, she sat on the rear bumper so she did not slip and fall.

BUT as it was freezing cold on the bumper, her backside froze to it and she is stuck with pants down on the rear bumper. They have no water or anything in the car to release her from the ice. What to do?

So he ends up pissing all over her as the warm urine could unfreeze her backside. Haha.

They did not meet again after the first date.
