Re: Make Mine a Double MONDAY@ the MSC

Well wasn't THAT an interesting afternoon and evening. Chez Rabz is on the outer fringes of Sydney and is pretty much surrounded by national park and other scrub land. We aren't an 'interface' area although the interface areas are between 100 and 300 yards away making the actual bush 300 to 500 yard...

Re: It's the XMAS Raffle!

BP! Love the beach scenes on all three. As the postage and packaging to Oz would be extortionate I am happy to be left out of this :) Or he (we) could just plan a trip to deliver the goods to y'all :lol: I'm in, hehe...Bill? Um, no. Heck, I haven't even made it to Key West yet. I vote for Rabz to c...

Re: Frosty Friday @ the MSC

It rained!!!!!!! Only 3 millimetres (1/8 inch) but it's the first rain in a month! Sadly not enough and not in the right places to deal with the fires. We'll take any small mercies we can. At last count 503 houses have been lost in this state alone. Below are the current bushfires, we've had a relat...

Re: Hot Soup SATURDAY@ the MSC

Sadly, Australia is fast becoming a land of officialdom, bureaucratic nonsense and draconian governmental secrecy.

Re: Hot Soup SATURDAY@ the MSC

Spent Saturday shopping for and installing a new dishwasher. Apparently, some bright spark decided that all new dishwashers must have an automatic cut-off valve on the water feed. So many hours were wasted disassembling cupboards and cutting new access holes because the stupid valves are huge and wo...

Re: Claude Monet's birthday Thursday @ the MSC

Had to get drugs and stopped at the new Aldi. Nice store but not sure we won't stick with Kroger. Wandered around, got free bags and headed home...in the rain. Ugh Aldi have really shaken up the supermarkets here in Oz. I gather they are nearing 15% market share in a market dominated by two huge ch...

Re: The Weather is Here TUESDAY@ the MSC

The ute is unpacked. The bug out bags are empty. Most of N.E. New South Wales is still burning, but we dodged it yesterday. And all our wonderful politicians did was offer "thoughts and prayers", not much help against a firestorm. :roll: Now all they're doing is having a shouting match about how we ...

Re: Veterans' Day MONDAY@ the MSC

So far, so good. 05:45 AM No fires in the district yet. Eerily quiet, the morning peak traffic should be building now but isn't. Vehicles are packed. Had a spanner thrown in the works yesterday the generator (which runs the water pump in an emergency) developed an oil leak. Too late to do anything a...

Re: The Door Was Locked Friday @ The MSC

Hi All, Well I guess an update from the Gates of Hell is due. Keep in mind it is only the middle of spring, summer hasn't raised from it's slumber yet. The bill for the last 24 hours: 2 confirmed dead. 7 unaccounted for. 150 homes lost. We are a long way from having this under control. That's just i...

Well the boredom is gone. Half the state is under bush fire threat (not here yet). 15 declared emergency warning fires as a part of over 100 running wild fires. Unprecedented! And it's only the middle of spring. Anyhoo, I spent some time jiggering with the fire fighting generator and pump, so boredo...

Hiya Rabz! Egging houses is a time honored act of vandalism here. Why stores sell eggs to teens is beyond me. I have posted this before, but here's a good one. In the rural town where I now live, my grandparents were besieged with a nasty Halloweens trick. Boys ran through the back yards, tipping o...
