Speakers in the car crapped themselves yesterday (or maybe the wireless has?). Just when I thought I had an ordered list of jobs to get ready for the trip, now I've got to jig around to get the speakers replaced.... which will mean stripping out the back of the car to remove the fridge, to be able to remove the storage draws so that I can get the panels off to be able to get at the speakers  >:( rastamumblecurssesnaugghtywords There's a full day next weekend shot to hell fixing that  >:( >:( >:( only 4 non-work days left to get everything done, and the speakers will kill one of those.

But you get the chance to put some good gear in there while at it - or just drop the car off and get it done..

You sure it wasn’t Mrs or Miss Spada’s cunning plan to stop you playing Dad music all the way to the cape and back?

Pretty safe to say that Rusty Crow would have been one of the select few to get a refund.....

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) released a statement this week saying it was "aware of refunds being made to consumers for the USA Basketball games … in Melbourne and Sydney on 22, 24 and 26 August" but it was yet to demand promoters issue refunds.

Without doubt.. but the lemmings ... bad luck.
If theres another game, I bet theres a flood of seats forsale on ebay for chump change LMAO!



the refunds were due to advertising that all the gods and top players were coming, when infact they had no intention of coming :D

$170 got you a great view of the ants  ;D ;D ;D


$200 .. pure comfort and brilliant view

not 100% perfect with youtube, but vastly improved and stops ads throughout your home network...

Unlikely that both speakers died at the same time though. I'd be doing a little fault finding before changing them.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

 Oldest daughter was to go to her very first job interview on Saturday morning.We were away from home for the weekend so she decided to stay home to go to said interview.
I decided a few days beforehand to pre book a taxi in Maclean to get her there.Specified the time & place to pick her up.Though to myself,great, all organized. 
 The person on the other end of the phone took the booking but simply failed to record the booking.Daughter was waiting for the taxi that never showed up, hence, was late for her first job interview.Very poor form from the Maclean taxi service. Wont be using them again. Bring on Uber next time.  >:( >:(
