General Discussion / Re: What am I Grateful for today.

Hi Swaggers,
This maybe long winded.
Last night I was invited to a dinner, at a local pub, I accepted, a mate in town picked me up along with another bloke who lives in town whom I had never meet before.
Anyway, the purpose of this was,
To get Blokes together to share their stories, their struggles, their fears, they stories of over coming the dark days.
There were about 14 of us, I knew four of these guys, we introduced ourselves, it was heart breaking to hear a couple of their stories, drug abuse, being abused as kids, marriage break ups and not seeing their kids.
Everyone had a story that needed to be told.
One of the blokes, wont name names, but he designed the shirts the last couple of years for NRL Indigenous rounds, he comes from Tabulam.
2 others played first grade nrl in the 80's, they have made it their quest to help blokes, not just Aboriginals blokes/kids.
God I learnt a lot from them last night.
This is an event that will happen each fortnight, and any bloke is welcome.
Us blokes don't like change, we need to help each other.

On Another What am I Grateful today, Tuesday night I came off probation Firefighter, I'm a member of The Lawrence Brigade  I'm still a newby, but my journey is official.
I attended the huge fire on the Pacific Motorway at Franklins rd on Monday, 13 hours on Fire Ground.
I can not thank my captain, deputy captain and fellow members for their support, encouragement and guidance.
I wear the uniform with pride and accept the responsibility the comes with it.


Take care Swaggers

gee... amazing reaction time :D I reckon I'd have kicked that.  :cup:

I gave him plenty about that too.... ha ha ha.

Only comes in one shade of green, no sense waiting for a colour chart.

I use to be outta there as the last yellow was going off.... it would either be a killer green light or a red light by a couple of thousands of a second.

Wait until you see him on this pass.
He's pissing himself laughing, as the car just didn't wanna play.

bottom one says 7.6 @174

And the little Fiat went 7:43 @ 180mph.

Both cars had the potential to run harder, much harder, but it was all funded by Bob Scott and any sponsorship I bought it.
When ya run on a budget, ya never going to be the fastest.

Although, the 34 ran under the National ET record and over the National MPH mark, so was pretty happy with that.

When we licensed the Fiat, I just thought it would be as AA/Modified Altered (AA stands for V8/turbo, nitrous or blower)

We ended up as a AA/Alcohol Altered.  :o
I thought that was pretty cool, it meant I was licensed to run in Top Alcohol and I had a Group 1 license.

Fun days huh, I just loved the savage assault on the senses when you unleash a blown car.... friggin loved it.

However, I think, 20 years later as I head into old age, the Zephyr will be good for a couple of stiff willies.

I think each state has slightly different rules on the use of blinkers in roundabouts hence the confusion
I think you're Right.
QLDer's don't use them at all.
Mecicans only use the right hand one,
Sandgropers, leave them on after turning,
NSW, only use them when they feel they have too.

I followed a H/way Patrol through a aroundabout the other day, they took the third exit, not once did an indicator come on.
WFT,   >:D

You don't use magic to disappear, all you need is a 4wd & a Swag. :)
