On a serious note though; not having DS in Qld and commerce not being in  synchronization with the rest of Oz causes some problems.....

Shake&Bake BB

so when you say "the rest of Oz", I assume your referring to just NSW (except Broken Hill) and Vic, cause SA, NT, & WA are different to Qld as well............or are they not part of "the rest of Oz"  ;D

One  weird thing about Qld DS - (when the Govt trialed it a couple of times pre millennium) -- is when you're going out to fine dine; all duded up -- at say 6:30pm.......

It feeling like you're having dinner in the middle of the afternoon. .......   so much sunshine; heat; humidity; etc....

I prefer to sleep when it is dark and not be woken up with the sun at 5am

You do realise that the sun comes up at the same time no matter what the clock says??

Even our cows have worked that one out!  ;D ;D

Last week, the right hand lower ball joint pulled the ball out of the socket as the old girl backed out of our driveway.  :o

Just wondering if you have been playing in the outback?  That dust is finer than talcum powder and gets in past the boots and destroys ball joints.
Had a lower on my Prado do that on the black top. Cut it apart and the nylon cup inside was totally abraded away so the ball could just pull out. Nice little gathering of outback dust in the bottom and the seals looked perfect.

Just a possibility...

Not during daylight savings, that's the whole point...

What's with QLD not having daylight savings? Waking at 5am on holidays has knobs on it :'(
We don't do it, because we know it upsets the Southerners  ;) 8) 8) ;D ;D

Here is why people shop on Ebay..................................
Monday 16th of this month you had kids size wetsuits up to size 4 in you shop selling for $50. This morning we decided to come in and buy  a size 4 for our young bloke only to discover the EXACT wetsuits we looked at on Monday are now selling for $99.

Cashing in on holiday makers no doubt, but WE are locals wanting to support local businesses. Well looks like now we will buy from E - Bay.

Washed my car this morning. Was in at the Brisbane Convention Centre all day yesterday. Some low life scab stole my tow ball cover.
I noticed when grease got on my sponge.
Thanks moron. I mean WTF?there only a couple of bucks. Go buy your own.

That's what I like most about this forum. It's so open minded. A post about theft, somehow morphs into people thinking about other swaggers anatomy.
I'm flattered... Honest...
But it's just not for me.

Just shows how many signals I miss, at the my swag dinner when you two stayed back together in the carpark to discuss camping gear. :)
And now your thinking and even posting  about my Anatomy
I'll try to be more observant. Sorry. :)

Actually Fathom - sorry mate. ...   pure and simple....

Any member of the forum has the right to post their concerns; views; questions; (usual socal etiquette etc being applicable)....

It would have been irksome that someone stole something off your truck...

What it was is totally irrelevant. ...

Hope I can catch up with you sometime and have a beer or 2 - and talk about things more  edifying:    4wding and camping       :)
