Not sure if it's smile or shake my head in wonder / disbelief ... ???

Saw a car yesterday with a personalised plate "Brexit" ::)

You care so much about it from the other side of the world that you're willing to lash out the lot's of $ for a PP, that'll make everybody else think you're a bit weird ???

Ummm, if you care that much, why not just go back ???

If you want to buy them, they are for sale on Ebay:

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.

 Quote from ebay seller "Hesitant to sell due to investment potential although all serious offers will be considered."


I nearly spat my coffee out when I read the above statement made by the seller of these plates

The 6 characters Prestige Plates are $2,395 , and their trying to get $25,000 for them . A 10 times profit if sold is not a bad investment profit .

Spent the day with me old man, took him to a few places he hasn't been to for about 50-60 years.  Guess you can say that when you 88.

Bought myself an Avanti Discovery ebike (last year’s model) at a pretty good price, then managed to ride almost 50km at an average of just under 22km/hr including some steep hills near home.

The fact Ebikes in Australia are limited to 25km/hr (higher is all up to how hard you pedal), have different levels of support to maximise battery life and you need to pedal to get the motor to work, all means you still get a pretty good workout.

Will post photos in the “show us your bike” thread when I get a chance.

Had to chuckle :D

Had family over last night for dinner. Nephew realised he'd forgotten to tape the tennis final so popped home to do it (pretty well only round the corner) as couldn't possibly miss it as it's going to be the greatest game of tennis ever!

I, with tongue firmly in cheek, suggested that, after going to all that trouble, it'd be funny if it finished 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 & over & done in an hour! >:D

No, no, couldn't possibly happen ... these are the two best players in the world ... last game went for almost 6 hours ... I'm worried that there's not enough space on the hard drive to tape more than 6 or 7 hours at HD ...

The result ???

6-3, 6-2, 6-3, 2 hours 4 mins ;D

Game, set & match Fizzie >:D

Our school had a small brick storage area where the crates of milk were delivered.. they were 1/2 size bottles from memory.. me and a mate gary crawled in tehre before the bloke delivered one day and helped ourselves to enough milk to make us spew for half hour and got sent home :D ahhhhhh the only good memory of school....
