G'day Gav, still a bit of smoke about, came within a few miles of here.
Poor buggers up North are copping a bit of H2O at moment. My sister reported 12" in two hours yesterday, 10" the day before.
Nice and cool 20C overcast here right now but wood like a little rain. The grass is very dry and the lawn crunches under foot  ;). *whistle*
Cheers

looks like ya sisters waters are well n truly broken then mate... I would imagine that as a good brother with a BSA that don't always make it home each trip, you have already given her some tips on how to push..... bet she didn't appreciate it either... Sisters can be strange creatures on the odd occasion. Ay?

Gday Musky & the Trevs,
The remains of cyclone Oswald is heading your way.
You won't have to worry about crunchy lawn or fires if that arrives on your doorstep.
Its a long time since i've seen rain and wind like that.
Its almost washed Qld away.
Had the missus cleaning out gutters and trimming trees.
The mowing can wait till next weekend.
cheers

It's been raining for two days now and getting heavier.
With a bit of luck it will wash Sydney away.

G'day Muskrat & Trevor,
Brace yourselves, that low has just passed here, gusts of way over 100 k's, & a fair dumping of rain,
the suns out today after 4 days of battering, no damage to report though, just tree branches,
just brought a chainsaw on ebay, it will get a workout this w/end,

regards, Cus

News Flash. We're not doing bad.
JUST  IMAGINE...

If you had bought $1,000.00 of Qantas shares one year ago, you would
have $49.00 today!

If you bought $1,000.00 AIG shares one year ago, you would have $33.00
today!

If you bought $1,000.00 worth of Lehman Brothers shares  one year ago,
you would have $0.00 today!

BUT....  if you purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank
all the beer, then returned the  aluminium cans for recycling....
  YOU WOULD HAVE RECEIVED  $214.00!!!

BASED ON THE ABOVE, THE BEST CURRENT INVESTMENT PLAN IS TO
   DRINK HEAVILY AND RECYCLE!

AND, DID YOU KNOW...

A recent study found that the average Aussie walks 900 MILES A YEAR!!!

Another study found that Aussies drink, on average, 22 GALLONS OF ALCOHOL A YEAR!!!

THAT MEANS THAT, ON AVERAGE, AUSSIES GET...41 MILES TO THE GALLON.

MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE AN AUSSIE DOESN'T IT?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I must have a uneconomical V8 in me, I dont get  anywhere near 41 mpg. I drink my share but I might have trouble with the 900 miles part, what does it work out to if you only walk 9 miles per year  *eek* *eek* *eek*

 Beer & Barbies........is that all you Aussies think about? What about B.S.A.s for a change. Have a great Australia Day, after all you were all UK convicts in the beginning & have to have something to celebrate! Cheers!
