That's right folks, the greatest country in the world now has it's very own thread here on the board. Southern cat is President and Chief Executive Officer, I'm the Vice President and Chief Operations Officer ( COO for short, which is appropriate as there could be one very soon ) and Lin is Treasurer.

Of course the thread is open to all nationalities as we don't discriminate. The bar is open 24 hours a day and the drinks are free. It's for all things Australian. Jokes, news stories, sport, friendly rivalries anything at all. If it involves an Aussie, this is the place to post about it.

Now where the heck is SC, so he can cut the ribbon to declare this place open. I'm thirsty.

Sounds like a great thread to me.   O0

If the grog is FREE then I'll shout the next round.

So when do we have the first meeting when we declare war on non drinkers and Aussie bashers?


You two are so trusting making me treasurer.  If I can get in enough funds I will be on the first plane home and the folk of Hazelbrook in the Blue Mountains had better watch out. 

Australia you ROCK.

You did say,"It's for all things Australian. Jokes, news stories, sport, friendly rivalries anything at all. If it involves an Aussie, this is the place to post about it".


A Man has an interview for immigration into Australia. The interviewer says to him: "Do you have a police record?" "What?" replies the man. "Do you still need one to get in?"  ;D ;D



The seven dwarfs went off to work in the mine one day, while Snow White stayed at home to do the housework and cook their lunch.

However when she went to the mine to deliver their lunches, she found there had been a cave-in, and there was no sign of the dwarfs.

Tearfully she yelled in to the mine entrance: "hello - is anyone there. Can anyone hear me".

A voice floated up from the bowels of the mine:

" Australia will win The Ashes"

"Thank god" said Snow White "at least Dopey's still alive"


 ;D ;D ;D ;D Sorry;)

Well after those jokes and the fact you are related to a sandgroper we might have to hold a meeting at the pub to decided membership rules.   ^-^

Mark Webber considers Ferrari's Fernando Alonso to be his main threat in Japan. Let's hope he can stay in front!

It would be fantastic if Mark wins The Formula One World Drivers' Championship :) 

I am a Jenson Fan and it's very unlikely he will  retain his F1 drivers' title, So I hope Webber can win it  this year O0

Getting back to all things Aussie.

What's everyones favorite All Time Aussie TV show?

Anyone can answer this as I'm sure with those things hurtling through space we have the capability of transmitting TV shows on the other side of the world.

Mine is Skippy.

I just loved how he could open doors with his paws. One genius marsupial, that one.

Gotta love Skippy, mine was the Paul Hogan show. I'll never forget the way he toasted bread with a gas torch. ;D

I loved the Paul Hogan Show and In Melbourne Tonight with Graham Kerr.    Skippy too, Australia's answer to Lassie.

I will accept any currency but it has to be enough to make it worth our while and to start off the slush fund to get me home.  :D

Yeah but many of them are visiting from the Southern areas!!!!!  However NSW even has the best queens.  :D

Well it's certainly not Prisoner Cell Block H ;)

I also loved Skippy The Bush Kangaroo. Yes, Skippy was a super-intelligent kangaroo who knew when things were wrong.
She had that incredible ability to tell her master exactly what was going on using just her normal animal speech. ;D ;D

Australia's answer to Lassie

Lin, the stories were also the same..Someone falls down a well or off a cliff and the dog or the Kangaroo goes to get help.. Wow! even Flipper the dolphin couldn't do that! :D ;D ;D

I also enjoyed watching The Paul Hogan Show in the 1980s on Channel 4 in the U.K. :)

I've also spend many good hours with the kids on a saturday morning,(when they were younger)watching the Wiggles and dancing along with Dorothy the Dinosaur.  ;D

Well as it is you 2M I guess we could make an exception.   You have a little of Aussie humour in your make up.   However silver horse (mule) shoes are not enough to get me home so I will write an IOU for solid gold mule shoes that you can sign thereby allowing you to be a little highier than an honorary member of the Aussie community.  ;D ;D ;D

More Aussie jokes ;)

What do you call an Aussie who scores well in an IQ test ?    A cheat. ;)


Sheila walked into the kitchen to find Bruce stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked.
"Hunting Flies" He responded.
"Oh. Killing any?" She asked.
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.
Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell them apart?"
He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

Well it's after 4pm here down under, so it's officially the weekend!!

The footy season has finished so this weekend it's the Bathurst 500 car race. The most gruelling endurance race for touring cars in the world I read somewhere long ago in the dear dim past.

What is a touring car anyway? I thought it was something you went on vacation in.

I'm not a rev head so it's not my thing but I'll probably watch a bit in the club Sunday afternoon after another woeful 18 holes I'm sure.

Oh, time the first drink of the weekend. Anyone else sitting at the bar or am I here on my Pat Malone?

Pardon the thread hijack. While you're enjoying your beer, you might take a gander at this list of "Major League Baseball Players Born in Australia."

http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/birthplace.php?loc=Australia

The fellow on top, Grant Balfour, has an unfortunate name for a pitcher. If the pitcher "grants" (or throws, anyway) "Ball Four," it means the batter gets to take first base without benefit of a hit.

Looking at that list of baseballers. I would have thought there would have been more. There's a big gap between Joe Quinn finishing in 1901 till the next player in the mid 1980's.

The ARDC Bathurst 1000 Touring Car Race was a must for me.   We used to go there every year and as we were non-driving members of the ARDC we could camp on the area in the centre of the course.  I know it has altered now but I am still interested in it.  In my day Alan Grice was one of the personalities.  He was renown for shunting other drivers.  I had a goat who used to butt me all the time so I called him Gricey.  :)   I liked the whole atmosphere up there and the race was fantastic.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/14/Bathurst_Racktrack_Holden_Corner.jpg/800px-Bathurst_Racktrack_Holden_Corner.jpg)   Hellfire Corner.  Mount Panorama.   The central area with the large tent is where we used to camp.

I'm glad you had a great time at this historical event.. Well done!

The footy season has finished so this weekend it's the Bathurst 500 car race. 

You can tell I'm not a rev head, I couldn't even get the name of the race right and halved the length of the race.

Bathurst 1000. (I'm a little surprised SC didn't pick up on that and give it to me)  :D

Getting back to the Aussie films, three films that I love that haven't been mentioned yet.


The Club (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080546/)

I'm sure this may be a favorite of SC's as well. A comedy about the struggles of an AFL club both on the field and in the boardroom. Jack Thompson, Graeme Kennedy are the stars.

Crackers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119103/)

A Christmas comedy from the late 1990's. Warren Mitchell is a riot as the grandfather.

Dad And Dave: On Our Selection (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112775/)

Leo McKern, Joan Sutherland and Geoffry Rush before he hit the big time and became an Academy Award winner star as the quintessential Aussie family back in the day in the bush.

All comedies for some reason.  :)

Title: Re: The Aussie Thread

Which did you enjoy best, the F1 race at Adelaide or the Bathurst Touring Car Race?

Well that is a difficult question 2M because they are so different.    I suppose the Bathurst became something we did often and the Adelaide Gran Prix was a one off.  The atmosphere at the GP was electric and the build up amazing.  Bathurst is not over in two hours or so as is an F1 race.  The camping and the BBQ's plus meeting up with old friends makes it a weekend to remember.  I met some of the drivers, something you are not usually lucky enough to do at an F1 event.  The feeling at Bathurst is more of a holiday weekend away with a fantstic touring car road race thrown in for good measure.  In my day if you arrived on the Friday it was possible to drive round the course.  Amazing to think you were driving the same track as the racing drivers. :)

Lin, I have just heard that if no qualifying session is possible ahead of the race the cars will start in numerical order.

This means Jenson would be on pole :)

So has anyone been watching the Commenwealth Games?

Is anyone interested?

I haven't seen much at all. The aussie's are doing well as they always do, but seriously, with all the hassles India had getting prepared, I think everyone but the diehards and family members of the competitors had had enough before it began.

From the little I have seen, there seems to be a lot of vacant seats at the venues. I saw a quick snippet of a tennis match and at a winning point, it sounded like four people clapping in the stands.

I have seen bits on the news and when waiting for a program I want to watch.   I am happy to see Australia doing so well.   I do agree there are not many spectators and I can see India making a real loss on the Games.  People would be turned off by the reports of problems with the accommodation and safety threats.   Quite a few of the top sportsman and women have stayed away so the competition is not a good as it could have been. 

On a radio program I heard someone say that India could host the Olympic Games.  I don't see that happening now, nor them affording it.  Perhaps I am wrong but the reception to the Commonwealth Games has been quite poor.

Keep going Aussies and bring home the gold.

I know we have a cricket thread here but since this will be a discussion about the Australian captain Ricky Ponting, I'll post it here. I don't want to kick the guy when he's down but I agree with some comments in the paper this week that it's time he stood down from the captaincy. His form is woeful and heading into the Ashes series next month, trying to concentrate on your batting and captaining the side at the same time is not going to fix the problem.

Unfortunately the player they want to replace him with is struggling as well. A batting average in the single figures in the two tests in India didn't help Michael Clarke's cause. So I'm calling for a complete clean out of the team for the Ashes series. The Sheffield Shield has already strted down here so the players showing form in the next month should be chosen for the first test against the Poms in November. Of course it won't happen as it's like it always is. It's harder to get out of the team than it is to get in.

Who's with me?
Title: Re: The Aussie Thread

Another couple of Aussie film favorites that I love. I even got called Smiley myself from some people when I was knee high to a grasshopper, although usually it was Meggsy. In honour of the cartoon strip Aussie Kid Ginger Meggs.

SK, Did you audition for the part of MR. MEGGS in Ginger Meggs - The Musical?  ;)

Title: Re: The Aussie Thread
Post by: Lin Sunderland on October 16, 2010, 05:30:31 AM
I know we have a cricket thread here but since this will be a discussion about the Australian captain Ricky Ponting, I'll post it here. I don't want to kick the guy when he's down but I agree with some comments in the paper this week that it's time he stood down from the captaincy. His form is woeful and heading into the Ashes series next month, trying to concentrate on your batting and captaining the side at the same time is not going to fix the problem.

Unfortunately the player they want to replace him with is struggling as well. A batting average in the single figures in the two tests in India didn't help Michael Clarke's cause. So I'm calling for a complete clean out of the team for the Ashes series. The Sheffield Shield has already strted down here so the players showing form in the next month should be chosen for the first test against the Poms in November. Of course it won't happen as it's like it always is. It's harder to get out of the team than it is to get in.

Who's with me?

Me for one.  :)

The inaugural Korean Grand Prix - the race which some thought would never happen - is set to play a key role in the outcome of an increasingly tense world championship battle.

Red Bull drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel prepare to go head-to-head with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. And to spice things up even more, all of them must aim for victory...

Good luck Webber.  O0

Of course!  We're only and hour from Disney and all the other places of entertainment.  We run a very basic bed and breakfast.  If we're home, the bed is made up and there's food in the kitchen for breakfast.  Help yourself!  If we're away, the bed is there (you might have to make it up first) and there won't be much in the way of food in the house.  Of course, we do provide free taxi service when we're home.   ;D

The money that I make on the side from running a bed and breakfast will go toward my trip to Australia.   8)

1 Mark Webber Australian RBR-Renault 220

SK, I used to buy Vegemite regularly.  However, I didn't use it as a spread.  It was the only yeast extract that I could get for my cooking.  If I try hard enough, I can find it here in the USA.

Your comment about Americans spreading it so thick reminds me of the first time my dad had some Marmite.  He was eating breakfast in the cafeteria of the college where he was a guest lecturer, and accidentally put Marmite instead of Cadbury's chocolate spread on his bread.  (The strange habits Dad picks up when not under Mom's supervision.)  He has always had a very biased opinion of Marmite and all its kin since then.   ;D

Yes that is true SK.   It was certainly his own fault when we saw the replays.  It is such a shame though.  Here's hoping he can pick up some more points in the next two races.  Fingers crossed.

It was a shame to see Mark throw this away, it was very frustrating to watch. Sadly It's looking more and more like Alonso will win the Championship! >:(

From Wiki,

There are two theories for the origin of the name Kurnell. It is either a deviation of an Aboriginal word "collonel" or a deviation of the name of an early settler, John Connell.

So SC, you get Tuesday off since it's Melbourne Cup day.

WHY? The race is on after 3pm, it only lasts about three minutes. Why does the whole state or just the city need the whole day to prepare for 24 horses running around a track and if one poor unfortunate soul should fall and break something, they get a bullet for their effort.

Yes, I'm only asking because I'm jealous as hell. If we had the day off, I'd be having a long long weekend!!

Sorry but that's just the lazy side of me whe I post someone's name. I like to cut them down so I don't have to type so much.

Let's see, who else is there:

SC, KC are good since there just initials so I don't have to edit them, Lin, Aline & Doug has less than 5 letters so I'm OK with that.

Then there's 2M, RE, E77, AB's and a few others I'm sure I've forgotten in the haze of this morning.

I remember there was a milk bar at Circular Quay just before you got on the Mosman ferry and they sold the BEST ever milk shakes.  Used to buy one everytime I was there.  I lived in Raglan Street, Mosman for a while in a flat with brilliant views.  Must find the pictures and see if I can work out how to use this new printer/scanner I have.   It is supposed to do everything even make the tea so I guess I had better get the instructions out, even though that is against my better judgement.

That reminds me of those pics I took of Sydney a few years ago. I'm sure I posted them on the board somewhere.

Time for a late night search!

Post by: The Schofield Kid on October 30, 2010, 03:59:45 AM
That was the quickiest search I've ever done here on the board. Straight to the photo thread and on the very first page, the pics I was looking for.

Here are the best two photo's I've ever taken.These were taken in 1987.A friend of mine had access to a roof on top of a building (no his name isn't Scorpio) near Circular Quay here in Sydney and I took some photo's.

Well it looks like it's survival of the fittest.

Myself and SC have been on the board for a lot of today. Trivia and this thread along with a few others have kept us occupied. Who will outlast the other?

I don't know what time it was when I first got on the board this morning and I've had a few breaks through the day, but I'm starting to fade fast.

Yesterday when I came up with a nickname for Christopher, I started to think about others here on the board and today recipient of a new nickname is Aline.

Her knowledge of Quotes from Eastwood films baffles me. She's too good.

So I've given her the nickname of "Quotes". :D

Hope you don't mind Aline. It's only a bit of fun and others will be branded (so to speak) in the coming days too.

Tonight is my Year End and New year so I have been busy making special food and we have done a special ritual.  So we are off to spend the rest of the evening with out Pagan friends.

I spent it the same way when I was at home in  the Blue Mountains.  Only we celebrated the Sabbats at a different time of year.

Well yes he can play Tie me kangaroo down, sport on the didge but he plays Waltzing Matilda better.  You really can't recognise it unless you knew what he was playing.  Most of the stuff you play on a didge is rhythms rather than tunes.

I've just done a quick run through of the 19 pages here to see who's eligible for an Aussie Thread nickname. The only rule being you need a least one post in this thread to qualify.

So far we have Stats (Christopher), Quotes (Aline), Cookie (Lin) and Toons (TwoMules).

Stay tuned in the coming days for nicknames for SC, KC and Elizabeth77. Not necessarily in that order.

In fact, we may know sooner: Fernando Alonso will be crowned champion on Sunday if he scores fourteen points more than Mark Webber and four points more than Lewis Hamilton, and finishes ahead of Sebastian Vettel.

It only seems like yesterday that this thread was a little speck in that big empty space between my ears and after thinking it would be a little bit of fun for Stormy and myself to rib one another with our interstate rivalries and such, with some input from Cookie. But it's gone gang busters with some great laughs with all our international friends ( Quotes, Shirts, KC, Toons and Stats) I hope I didn't miss anyone.

Thanks Everyone.  O0

Sorry, I had a Springsteen moment there. :D



Yes folks, the moment you've all been waiting for. The announcement of KC's Aussie thread nickname.

I had a lot of ideas come and go through my head this week, first there was "Apples" since KC lives in The Big Apple and Toons's pics.

Then there was "Sneakers" due to KC's love of running. Or "Beep Beep" from The Road Runner.

Then it was "Manhattan Miss", but that was a bit too long and it sounded to me like a racehorse.

I almost went with "Dame Yankees", but again it was a little too long.

So finally it was what I should of thought of straight away.

Drum roll please.............................

Practice 1: Vettel leads Red Bull 1-2


Sebastian Vettel outpaced Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber by almost half a second as he topped the times in first practice at Interlagos.

McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button were third and fourth quickest, while championship leader Fernando Alonso pulled to a halt on the circuit at the very end of the session, apparently fearing an engine failure.

Practice 2: Vettel maintains Brazil edge


Sebastian Vettel showed he has no intention of giving up on his title ambitions without a fight as he again set the pace in second practice in Brazil as Red Bull completed its domination of the opening day.

Mark Webber had been the RBR driver at the head of the timesheet for most of the afternoon's running but Vettel marginally proved the faster of the two on the super-soft tyres late in the session.

Do I have to say her name?

Say Who? Say Who? Say Who? Say Who? Say Who? Say Who?


Sorry, I had a Springsteen moment there. :D



Yes folks, the moment you've all been waiting for. The announcement of KC's Aussie thread nickname.

I had a lot of ideas come and go through my head this week, first there was "Apples" since KC lives in The Big Apple and Toons's pics.

Then there was "Sneakers" due to KC's love of running. Or "Beep Beep" from The Road Runner.

Then it was "Manhattan Miss", but that was a bit too long and it sounded to me like a racehorse.

I almost went with "Dame Yankees", but again it was a little too long.

So finally it was what I should of thought of straight away.

Drum roll please.............................

It's LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/) (one word) ... it's sort of a Facebook for grownups professionals.  ;)

I'm actually a member ... I registered years ago when I was trying to find contact information for the authors of some of the interviews we were considering for inclusion in a book (not the Eastwood book). But I never posted a full profile and haven't updated my information since. I suppose I should, one of these days.

Gee SK I could go a bag full of those little beauties.

Going back to earlier comments.  I registered on facebook so I could keep in contact with a group I was in as I missed a few camps because I did know about them.  I stuck it for 1 month and never again.  What a load of cr"*p people post on there.  Only trouble is I keep getting messages that "friends" want to contact me.  I just delete the emails.  To get 'OFF' facebook I need to log on and somewhere there are instructions for leaving, however I can't remember the password I used and I really don't want to go there.   Philo a longtime member of this board is a facebook member but I only learn what he is up to through a friend of mine who uses facebook all the time.  She met Philo when she and I went to London.

Like SC and SK phone calls, emails and letters are fine when you are far away from people.    Meeting up when you are nearby.   That is the only way to keep in touch.  Oh! and on here of course.   :)

I am not on facebook but most of my family and friends are on it!

I find it very amusing and sad that people who live on the same street talk to each other through facebook!

People should get out more and enjoy each others company for real, it's the best way to keep in touch.

You're so right, Lin.  I'm not good at phone calls, emails or letters either, but they have substance and are personal.  My happiest times have been a result of being with family or friends.  Being a wanderer and globetrotter, it usually falls on me to contact my widely scattered friends when I'm going to be anywhere near them.

I've been on facebook for over five years now! :D I joined back when it was still just for college students.

I completely agree that it's best to try to get together with people, but I've gotten to know some great people through some of these sites, and if they've lived close by I've eventually been able to meet up with them in person. But of course communication is always complex, and can seem even more so when the main communication is in writing--there seems to be so much room for misunderstanding (as there is in person too).

If the writing is meaningful, it can be a great way to communicate.  When (and before) my husband was courting me, he only lived a mile away.  I used to email David every night and receive his answer when I got up to go to work.  We carried on long discussions that wouldn't have happened otherwise, and I got to know what kind of man David is.  (Of course, we spent a lot of time together, too, but this was my chance to get to understand how he thinks.)

Many of my friends are on facebook, but I'm not.  I'm sure I'd know more of what is going on in their lives, but I don't really need to know.  I send out an annual Christmas letter and that is about the end of my communications.

Toyota Corolla. I used to be shocking at keeping it clean. Hardly ever did it. Now in the past few months, I've tried to do it, either Saturday afternoon if I'm playing golf Sunday or Sunday morning.

I think I'm paying the penalty for not looking after it sooner as the paint work is peeling in patches. The bonnet is the worse. It's like when you get sunburnt and your skin peels off in patches after a few days. That's what it looks like. :(

It's the damn Aussie heat that's done it. >:(

Downbeat Mark Webber promised to fight until the flag after qualifying fifth for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver, who goes into the race second in the championship, must finish ahead of leader Fernando Alonso to have a chance of winning the title.

But with Alonso qualifying third behind Webber's team-mate Sebastian Vettel and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, the Australian has it all to do.

"It is disappointing but there is still a long way to go," said Webber.

"I need to finish ahead of Alonso but if I don't finish I don't win the championship either.

This should be a superb race tomorrow. I just hope Mark can get in front of Alonso!

Mark didn't make it  :'(    However on the brighter side neither did Alonso.   Vettel drove a good race and even if Toons would have rather not seen him on the podium, it kept Alonso off it.    Next year Mark could do it.    After the experiences of this year he has just about covered most of the problems he could encounter.  Perhaps if the safety car had not been needed the result could have been different.

Talking about kangaroos in the DVD thread with Toons made me remember that episode of Seinfeld when that old guy was talking to Elaine and was saying do male kangaroos get "Pouch Envy" since only the female kangaroos have pouches. I mean doesn't the male have things he wants to carry around too.

Man, just thinking about that cracks me up. ;D

I have to agree about that. Do you know the uacari-vermelho?

The uacari-vermelho (Cacajo calvus) lives among the trees of Amazon basin and moves jumping from branch to branch thru the top of the trees. His face is red because of the big quantity of blood vases he has on this region which makes a big contrast with his hair that variates from pale yellow, grey or white.

I didn't want to post the picture directly on the board because honestly I find the monkey a little creepy. If some of you want to see him, click on the link. I was looking a magazine about decoration of rooms the other day, suddenly turned a leaf and saw that picture in a full page about a nature alert campaign.The uacari-vermelho is an animal threatened with extinction. :(

I love animals but this monkey isn't good looking :o

On further examination, I'm afraid there is no hope for anyone. The compulsion is a disease for which there is no known cure. We are all infected with the fever. It's an epidemic.

In the show wasn't he. He had the slouch hat, so I always assumed.

I know in a later episode he turned up as Muldoon, who always asked for a coffee in a mug at Rosey's but got scotch in it instead. When Rosey was off crook, Charles was tending bar but didn't know, so when Muldoon asked for a coffee, that's exactly what Charles gave him. A brew ha ha erupted and Charles yelled out, "The aborigines are the civilised ones!"

Now it's funny you should mention goats. About 5 years ago I went back to that very same Animal Park after all these years and while I didn't see that sheep, a goat stole a bag of feed right outta my hand as I had my head turned for half a second. I was feeding some other animals and the next thing this goat wanders over and snatches it all outta my hand.

It's quite lucky it didn't take some fingers with it too! :o

Quote
AS THE leaders of the world's 20 foremost developing and developed nations began arriving in Seoul last night for the Group of 20 summit, the South Korean capital was at its welcoming best - if not a little confused.

In central Seoul, a display of statuettes portrayed each of the visiting VIPs in their national dress.

All except for Julia Gillard, who was dressed like a character from The Sound of Music.

Yep, she was dressed as an Austrian.

Austria is not a member of the G20 but neighbouring Germany is and the Gillard statuette was dressed very similarly to that of the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Ms Gillard was, at least, holding the right flag.

The display was situated at the end of a street renamed Global Street. Cement bollards on the footpath featured different nations and which of their major cities was a sister city to Seoul. For example, Paris.

Again, confusion reigned regarding Australia. Seoul's sister city was listed as ''New South Wales'' rather than the more accurate Sydney.

One of Melbourne's most loved and adored publican has died aged 92.

She owned my local pub and will be sorely missed. :'(

The pub is never open on a Sunday due to her love of the church. Every other day you would see her around the pub picking up glasses and chating with people. She was a wonderful lady.

What a great Aussie. I'll certainly have a drink in her honour tonight. Thanks for posting the links Stormy. I had a chuckle reading the second one.

“I remember one time sitting in the beer garden talking about her life as a publican and she was telling us of how when they came to put pokies in the pub she pulled out a baseball bat and chased them down the street.’’

Thanks for your kind word guys. :)

Love these couple of quotes.
Quote
“I’ve seen over the years when fights have started — and she’s a tiny lady — but she’d walk right into the middle of it and break it up.
Quote
“When Kath put her finger up, you’d $#!t yourself.”

So true.

She didn't demand respect, she had it.

I find it hard to tell every one how beautifully she graced her establishment as the most respected person I've ever met.

She was/is definitely one in a million.

One of Melbourne's most loved and adored publican has died aged 92.

She owned my local pub and will be sorely missed. :'(


SC, I'm Sorry to Hear About the Death of your local publican. :(

I remember being at Lidcombe oval for a Rugby League game probably around the mid 80's and at half time of the game they had a dragster go around the cycle track they had around the outside of the field. It would rev it's engines and take off for about 30 yards. It did this a few times. Unfortunately I had to be standing near where it stopped then revved it's engines and I swear I couldn't hear a thing for minutes. Boy, that was loud.

Stormy and Cookie with their heads under the bonnet, covered in grease and oil. Too many parts laying on the ground and you can't figure out where they go.

Shirts and Babs looking at the car manual trying to help.

I'm sitting back having an ale with a bemused look on my face with one hand in my pocket. Books is reading the latest Bio on Beethoven oblivious to it all.

Stats sitting in the drivers seat turning the ignition every now again without success.

Quotes and Bags looking on upset that with no car they're not going to get to the shops as they open for the big weekly sale.

Just come back from Kath Byer's funeral. Gees there were a lot of people, even bumped into a few old mates of mine.  Blimey, full police escort, lanes blocked off. It was massive.

She touched a lot of hearts. More men were sheding tears than the ladies including me.

Farewell Kath. :'(

The daughter has taken over(thank God). So that means the NO POKIES policy will stay (Yahoo). So  the chooks and other birds will get fed and occasionally get let out to wander around the beer garden. You'll still get the best chicken parma in town.

Nothing will change except we'll have to look up to see that Kath is looking down at us.

That is good hear SC.   Especially the No POKIES.  I used to hate going to my local for a quiet drink and all you could hear was that awful metallic sound of poker machines and a few dollars falling into the tray every now and again.  They are OK in places like the Panther's complex when you can get away from them.

Then I have figure out bench top sizes and costings. Chose tiles/colours. Get a new sink.

This was the first house I bought on my own.  It is in Leura.   From the look of it they have divided the block in two and built a house at the opposite end of the really long garden.   It used to go from Eastview to Kings Road. 

Shouldn't have done all this. Sooooooooooo homesick now  :'( :'( :'( :'(

If it wasn't 5.50 am I think I would be having a stiff drink now to combat the feeling of loss.  Gee if I won the lottery I would be on the first plane home and wouldn't even stop to pack.

Yes that is always a thought.  Big Brother is watching you all the time.  I wonder how much bother these shots have caused in relationships.  :o

I see the cottage in Leura still has the tin roof.  Gee that was some noise when it rained.   If I can work out how to use my new printer with built in scanner I will try to post a picture of Eastveiw Ave when I owned it.  I remember I paid $18,750 for it with loads of land.  I bought it in 1978.   I really loved it.  It was a little farm once and where the new buildings are at the bottom of the garden I had cowsheds.   There's another toon idea for Toons.  ;)

$ 18,750 :o How times have changed.

Mum sold our house in Glen Iris for $240,000 back in 1995. That house you see now on Google Earth is worth $1,200,000. :o

If only we had the benefit of hindsight.

Too right!    I would have sold off half the block and I could have lived there longer.  I had to sell the place because the cost of keeping it in good nick was killing me.  There was always something going wrong.  The worst was when we had a storm that lasted most of the night.  I got out of bed in the morning and was up to my ankles in water.  The roof had lifted on one side and I had a waterfall down the bedroom wall.  The water got into the electrics and I was without power for 4 days.  Had to stay with a friend until the 'leccy said it was safe!   I seem to remember it cost more than a months mortgage even with the insurance.  They paid for the water damage to the bedroom and the furniture and part of the wiring but they wouldn't pay for a whole rewire that I needed.

I'm getting ready for my long over due kitchen renovation. Today I brought a new oven, cook top and range hood, got 50% off. All my cabinets, doors and handles are sussed and just need to be ordered.

Seems like you are pretty well sorted with the kitchen plans Stormy.  Have you decided on a bench top colour yet?   It should look brilliant when it is finished.  You will have to post a pic.

Have thought about your kitchen Stormy and I like the idea of off white cupboards but I am not too sure about the black bench top.  you would need light walls to offset it.  Think I would go for a high gloss finish in a rich hermitage red or even a forrest green.

I'm implementing a new feature to the Aussie Thread from today.

It's Aussie Of The Day!

Whenever an Australian does something extraordinary they will be recognised here in the Aussie Thread as Aussie Of The Day.

Today's inaugural winner is Australian Cricketer, Peter Siddle. On his 26th birthday he has destroyed the Pommies on the first day of the Ashes series taking six wickets for the innings which included a hat trick.

Well done Pete.

AUSSIE OF THE DAY!!!!!!

The first ball was an edge to first slip. Watson didn't catch it cleanly but it stuck. The second ball was a beauty, beat the batsmen all end up to rattle the timber and the third ball was just as good. Perfect yorker, cracked him on the foot on the full.

The Pom's actually challenged that and the video ref took about 1.2 seconds to make a decision. :D

You could always go to Charlotte's Pass or Perisher Valley and watch it there.  ;D   You have amazing storms that we don't get here.  We are never satisfied are we?   I miss the area I lived in and the people but not really the hot weather.  It is getting hotter in the Blue Mountains and I believe there was no snow last year.   In the past I was snowed in a few times.    We used to have "Christmas in July"z in the Carrington Hotel in Katoomba with a Santa and Christmas food.   It was fun  :D

The Claxton Shield used to be the big Baseball comp down here but that folded about 20 years ago.

Dave Neillson (sp) got involved with starting up a comp a few years ago but that didn't last long and now we've got this current league. I only heard about it on the radio by someone involved with it talking about it starting up a few weeks ago, but you never read anything about the games in the paper or see any of it on the tv.

Frank Fenner Dies at 95; Tracked End of Smallpox
By WILLIAM GRIMES

Frank Fenner, an Australian scientist who played an important role in the World Health Organization’s decade-long campaign to eradicate smallpox and who made the official announcement, in 1980, that the disease had been conquered once and for all, died Monday in Canberra. He was 95.

How was the golf weekend Tees?

Fantastic as usual. 8)

Weather was better than expected. No rain at all. Although the wind on Saturday along the coast was enough to blow a dog off a chain. More like gale force. The final hole a par 5, played like a par 8 into the teeth of that gale.

It was just great to get away from all the BS, even if it was for only one night.

Golf wasn't the most important thing on the weekend but I got a lot of time to try things out on the course and my chipping around the green is slowly getting back to where it was a few years ago before I got the yips.

I had intended to get wasted over the weekend but I took it easy and that's what I'll be doing from now on. :)
Title: Re: The Aussie Thread
Post by: Southern cat on November 27, 2010, 11:03:08 PM
That's great to hear Tees.

Chipping is my worst enemy. When I practice it, I'm great but as soon as I hit the course...whammo it's out the window.

Now you have me really hanging out for the Xmas break. Getting the kitchen and laundry done, then starting a fresh new time for me.

Title: Re: The Aussie Thread
Post by: Southern cat on November 27, 2010, 11:13:47 PM
Golf is purely a mental game isn't it. I remember once I was playing with a mate and I totally stuffed up a chip onto the green. Then I dropped another ball on the ground and said to him "Watch this, I bet you I can chip this onto the green close to the hole while looking at you and not the ball"

So that's what I did and that's what happened. We both laughed but inside me I said why can't I do that while I'm playing the game for real. >:(

Sitting in the club last night we could see on one of the big screen tv's had a show on about Channel 9 and some of the old shows and stars. They were showing clips from Graeme Kennedy and Paul Hogan and a few others.

We couldn't hear the sound with the live band playing but we were still cracking up at these skits after so many years. Paul Hogan as Leo Wanker was a riot. :D

Talking of having 'grey moments' what about me yesterday. I got home to find they'd been a blackout sometime on Saturday so I had to reset my bedside clock. I reset it around 3pm but somehow set it for 3am. And when I set the alarm for this morning I set it at 7pm not am. So in the end everything worked out and the radio came on at 7am, it's just the clock thought it was 7pm.

I just threw my cup of coffee on the fire instead of a log.  :o   Exit one cup.   Will have to let the fire die down to pick out the bits.   I can use the heat proof gloves you get to use when opening the door.

Just as well Gary is out.  If anyone tells him I will put a Hex on you.  (http://www.themagicwandshop.co.uk/images/witch7_1.gif)

There will be more senior moments from me.  Not being at work, spending the day with a dog and no one else around until the weekends I may just go right off my trolley.  :o

You'll be OK. Just start worrying if one day you're talking to Meg and she talks back to you. That's when it's time to worry! :D

Reading this thread, I've been wondering what excuse I can give for my mix-up today.  I'm not old enough to have a "senior moment" so I'll have to think of something else. 

I packed a lunch (supper) to take to market with me today.  The standard fare is sandwiches of some kind or other.  When I finally got around to making the sandwiches for my kids, I discovered that I'd left the one sandwich filling at home in the toaster oven.  I had remembered the cheese, but had no slicer, so that didn't work too well either.  The kids made do with the other things I'd brought and didn't complain, but I felt rather bad about the whole thing.

These women are incredible to say the least. To take the challenge of deciding to enter a purely male dominated trade(well all trades are male dominated) is in itself courageous. They perform beyond expectations and with their presence, we tend to pull our heads in so to speak which is refreshing. I hate loud mouth tradesmen.

Young Amanda sits next to the biggest and toughest looking guys on site or maybe I should say they sit next to her. He's a big softy at heart. It's so refreshing to this trend change.

In just under 12 hours the hosts of the Football World Cup in 2022 will be announced. Australia are in the running and according to the experts one of the favorites along with the USA and Qatar.

I cringe when I hear how much money is being spent just to win the rights, then to actually playing host when the are so many services here struggling for funds. But that's another discussion for another forum. If we win, I suppose it will be good for the country seeing it's the biggest sporting event in the world. If we don't win, I won't be losing any sleep. :)

Congrats to Tees for starting this thread.

We don't know how lucky we are to have a person of this calibre to keep us going through the tough times. He himself has let us know we are all human by his actions and humility.

As we constantly celebrate Clint's career through our voice, we should celebrate each other as friends far and wide.

Thanks everyone for putting a smile my face every day. :)

Ah Shucks Stormy. I was expecting something explosive for the 1000 reply to this thread and you come out with that little speech that has got me all teary eyed. No, wait there is something in my eye. :D

No seriously folks, yes I'm being serious in the Aussie thread. Relax, I'm not drunk. I just want to thank everyone who has joined in the fun over the last couple of months. As I've said before this really started out as a thread where I could TEES Stormy and he could return serve and I thought occassionally Lin would pop in to see what all the fuss was about and to take my side of the friendly arguments I've have with Stormy but it's grown into this monster.

No not a monster, but just a thread where we can let our hair down and have some laughs and boy we've needed them. Especially after watching the cricket. :-[

So to all who have posted in the thread congrats for getting us to 1000 replies and let the celebrations begin.

Let there be beer, women, beer and more women. :D

Spot on Tees.

It's not about the 1000 posts, there is a little Aussie in all of of us.

We talked about starting a thread like this for a while and I never expected it would turn out like this!

OK, back to the real purpose of this thread. Sydney....I'll give you the drum... is not what it is all cracked up to be!!!

What to do with myself this weekend? It will be the usual Saturday and Die Hard Movie Night on Monday morning but Sunday, no golf, so what shall I do? Take a stroll in the park, a drive in the country perhaps, last minute Xmas shopping, mmmm.

So I'm in the supermarket this morning and they've got the Xmas tunes coming through the PA and that song I always hear in December comes on. I don't know who sings it. It sounds a little like that Spanish blind guy who's name I can't think of. I don't know the name of the song but he keeps singing "Felix's Muddy Duck" all the time.

It's a great tune but the most bizarre name for a song.  ???

Christmas has come and gone for another year. Today is boxing day when all the kangaroos come out to fight. No, that's not true, I just made that up. :D

Boxing Day, when all the unwanted gifts are placed back in their boxes to be returned to the store for a refund. No, just joking.

Who knows why it's called boxing day but it's another day off and the cricket starts, the festivities continue, we eat more, drink more and by the end of the day we're fast asleep on the lounge. Contented. :D

Who knows why it's called boxing day but it's another day off and the cricket starts, the festivities continue, we eat more, drink more and by the end of the day we're fast asleep on the lounge. Contented. :D


It is called Boxing Day because the wealthy people used to box up food and gifts and give them to the poor.   Mostly stuff the wealthy didn't eat or want but still it went to the needy.

I think today it was 31°C, that's been about the hottest day so far. Is it the same south of the border, down Melbourne way?

What's happened to those 40°C + days of our childhood playing cricket in the street, breaking windows on cars and houses?

It certainly has been a late start to summer here as well. The hot days are on the way just in time for NYE.

La Niña has kicked in with higher than normal rainfalls and lower temps can be attributed to cooler than normal ocean temperatures.

Talking of playing cricket in the street as a kid. Ahh the memories, smacking that tennis ball all around. Scrambling on the asphalt before it disappeared down the drain.

Hearing the jingle of the Mr.Whippy truck in the distance. We'd all run home looking for our pocket money or beg our parents for some cash to get an ice cream. Then sit there on the gutter or on the grass nature strip and lick our hearts away on the ice cream before it melted down your arm. God those things were sticky.

Then it would be on with the game until there was no more light from the sun and the crappy street light wasn't bright enough to cover the pitch so we couldn't play a day nighter.

And then the call of "It's time to come inside now!" would echo through the street coming from each house. And we'll all stroll home unhappy that funtime was over and it was time for a wash.

I don't think most kids are allowed to play outdoors by themselves these days. Too bad, too. Like SK, I remember playing outside until we had to come in because it was dark. Then, but only then, we might watch TV for a bit before going to bed.

Thanks guys.   Well here it is the first few hours of retirement.

I have just cracked open a beer and I am all by myself.   BTW it is a Wychcraft beer.  Brewed by Wychwood.

Love the chair SC and the card SK.     Wish I could be right next to the 'roo enjoying a VB instead of this beer.  However Wychcraft isn't too bad.  ;D

I am going to light the wood burner and party with Meg.   ;)

Perhaps no owl jokes, but can I make a cuckoo joke instead?

Today (once again I might add) you sneaky aussies manage to infiltrate the Royal Danish family even further. :D

Mary Donaldson from Tasmania, our future queen and tasty hottie...

(http://images.starlounge.com/2010/12/18/25_DK_Mary_riget.jpg)

...gave birth to twins (a boy and a girl) today.
The boy was born at 10.30 and the girl at 10:56. (local time)

The prince weighs 2674 grams and is 47 cm. long, and the princess veighs 2554 grams and is 47 cm long.

I suppose a "well played" is in order  ;)

You know, Tasmanians always get accused of being backwards or freaks, but I tell ya, Princess Mary is one stunningly looking woman that that theory just doesn't apply to her.

Congrats to her and the Prince on the birth of twins.

Oh. He has really been busy then, holding interviews and calling left and right.
He got a great sense of humour, saying that until such time as the proper names are going to be announced, he'd go with Elvis for the boy, seeing as the twins share another kings birthday  ;D
Not that "Elvis" is ever going to be king. Mary and Frederik has been really busy (not that I blame him  ;)) and there are already two older kids in line.

I don't agree with the comments about Tassie made by some Aussies. I'm with SC.  I really loved the place and the people there are so friendly.  I have visited a few times and found some lovely places to stay apart from the main towns.

I took my car to a coin car wash for the first time ever a couple of days ago. I actually enjoyed it. Having the car completely covered with 2 inches of foam was a crack up.

                                  NEWSFLASH

We interrupt this thread to bring you a special report. We go now to the Oblong Office where Vice President Tees, is about to address the nations.



My fellow Aussie Threadians,

Wednesday January 26 is Australia Day. The national day of the greatest country in the world. To celebrate, The Aussie Thread is declaring a 5 day weekend next weekend! 96 hours of non stop partying, fun and games for all.

In an unprecedented move we will be having an Aussie quiz with prize giveaways galore. Not just to the winner, but to everyone who participates. That's right, not just the winner, but everyone who plays!! Each day from Saturday January 22, 2011 - Tuesday January 25, 2011 a set of questions will be posted. Don't worry they won't be too difficult and a lot of the answers can be found here in the Aussie thread or elsewhere here on the board.

On Wednesday January 26, after I give the go ahead, the first person to post the correct answers to all the questions, will be declared the winner . If no one answers all questions correctly, it will be the nearest to. Myself, Stormy and Cookie are the judges, so we are ineligible to participate. As I said, everyone who participates will be taking home a prize.

Prizes include, all things Australian. DVDs, key rings, stationary, soft toys and much more. Hopefully we all have some fun and this could become a annual event each year here on the board.

More details to follow.

Thank You.  8)

My local barber must be giving away free haircuts or something. Usually when I go down there on a Monday every couple of months, there's rarely anybody waiting. Maybe one in the chair and then it'll be my turn.

The last two Monday's I've gone down there on more than one occassion and there's like three or four waiting to get a haircut. I just can't sit there for that long and wait so I keep putting it off to the following week.

The way things are going I'll be looking like cousin It from The Addams Family shortly.  :D

It certainly is a good visualization of what I feel like.  I've been trying to justify the name of Shirts by painting 42 in less than 8 hours.  I've got something like writer's cramp and seem to have momentarily lost my sense of humor.  I'm too tired to celebrate.  I have finally caught up on painting shirts (until I sell some more tomorrow).  Now I can relax!!  :)

Still they were nominated SK.  Better than no recognition at all.  I agree though it was rather sad.  You would have thought one of them could leave with a globe.

Must have been the shock of seeing Colin Firth in the Aussie thread.   ;D ;D ;D

I guess we were all otherwise occupied.  :o

Actually we were all standing around SC's backyard, with the plumber, watching him digging huge holes.   Always read the instructions.   It pays off. 

See this from the THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Quote
Get this, the plumber arrives with this $10,000 pipe locating machine that he borrowed from a technical college where he teaches plumbing to apprentices three days a week. He turns it on and starts walking around trying to find this underground pipe. Nup he says, it's not working properly. Someone must have changed the settings. So during lunch I googled the pdf instruction manual.

After lunch I said "Why don't you try your pipe locator again otherwise we'll be digging up half the backyard". He is on the wand part and I'm at the camera snake machine which is inside the pipe. Then I turned on the "sonde key" button and wham it's working. We were digging 5 foot away in the wrong spot.

I should bill him for that.

Speaking of The Australia Day competition, there will be five questions posted on each of the four days (Saturday - Tuesday) On Wednesday at 8am (AEDST) I will give the go ahead and the prize line will remain open until 4pm (AEDST) for everyone to post their answers.

Since everyone will be a winner it won't matter whether you post your answers first or last. If you post them in the alloted time, you'll win.

Can't ask for a better competition than that I say. :)

Today's Aussie Of The Day.

The newest recipient of Australia's highest medal for military bravery will find the award changes his life, but he can't let it change his character, Victoria Cross holder Keith Payne says.

An SAS digger who "tore into the enemy" and took out three Taliban machine guns single handed in Afghanistan is to be awarded the VC at a special ceremony in Perth on Sunday.

The soldier, known only as Corporal Ben at this stage, will receive his medal from Governor-General Quentin Bryce at Perth's's Campbell Barracks.

Although there seems to be zero interest in this so it could be a complete flop and never be seen again.  :-\



1- How many stars are on the Australian Flag?

2- What are the names of Stormy's two cats?

3- What is Tees favorite sport?

4- Toon's has a cousin living in Australia. In which city does he live?

5- What is the name of Cookie's dog?

Welcome to the Aussie Thread GE.

Your Aussie thread nickname will be "Jules". When you first started posting on the board you said how you liked Coogan's Bluff and Susan Clark's character, Julie. So that's how I've pictured you in my head since, when I see your posts on the board.

Every Julie I have known always gets called "Jules" so I hope you like it. :)

Just to confuse you more than ever.  In that clip I posted of Fred Dagg teaching the wife to drive the tractor Fred says "She's been getting on to me and the Trevs"  so you can just pick one.  :D ;D ;D ;D

There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend: Those who draw the pictures, and the people who have the job of giving me the ideas. ;D

This idea of Captain Cookie on the Endeavour, actually came from Tees. :)

Now I have to say this.    I sailed on the re-enactment of the First Fleet out to Australia for the bicentennial in 1988.  I sailed on the Anna Christina.  The second smallest ship in the fleet.  I did however step on board Endeavour one.  :)

Aussie of the Day is Gary Blaschke.

He runs the Disabled Surfers Association and I saw his story on tv last night. His story brought tears to my eyes the way he gets an army of volunteers to reinvigorate disabled people. The looks on their faces was amazing.

Just when you think your starting to chat to someone online then you go and see what they are doing(who's online) and bang you see you're getting TDO. The old "Viewing unread topics since their last visit" routine.

Good Old Slim.  

Part of me will be glad when this Australia Day will be over.   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Not really true I feel like this every Australia Day.  My flag flies in the window because the 'powers that be' here in Yorkshire wont allow you to fly any flags other than the England flag and the Yorkshire White rose flag.  :o

Hey Tees that is some collection.  I only have about 50 movies other than all of Clint's.  Except, of course, Hereafter.

The eastwood collection is on three shelves above my PC in the den.  I can just reach up and get a movie without leaving my seat!   They are stored in alphabetical order .  My others are not in any order at all.  Lazy I guess.  ::)

14- What year was Australia's Bicentennial?

My local barber must be giving away free haircuts or something. Usually when I go down there on a Monday every couple of months, there's rarely anybody waiting. Maybe one in the chair and then it'll be my turn.

The last two Monday's I've gone down there on more than one occassion and there's like three or four waiting to get a haircut. I just can't sit there for that long and wait so I keep putting it off to the following week.

The way things are going I'll be looking like cousin It from The Addams Family shortly.  :D

I felt for sure today would be third time lucky.

Nope!

The little rascal isn't even open. I bet he's pinched my idea and had a five day weekend. 8)

Scratch that. Thanks to Toons for reminding me but there is also the 39 (so far) Clint Eastwood DVD's from DeAgostini Magazines, that I forgot to count. Even though they are all sealed and will remain so. :)

So the correct count is 553. 8)

It's never been the same since we won it though. I'm no sailing fan but what that did for the country here and how we beat the might of the USA who up until that time had never lost the cup it was phenomenal.

Ever since then though the Cup has sort of lost that luster and I couldn't even tell you when the last time it was on or who won. All I remember in the past ten years was there were a lot of legal battles and even a European country that's landlocked won the cup a few years ago. ???

On my last day at work, I was sitting next to a ranga mate in the smoko shed. A bloke came up to him from a different company and said to him, "You're sitting in my seat". I thought to myself (gees pal, you shouldn't of said that). Well my mate stood up looked at the back of the chair and said, "I don't see your name on it".

 What followed was a barrage of verbal fire power with expletives, so this bloke put his tail between his legs and wandered off.

These big Kiwi guys were sitting there one day and I went off. It must have looked amusing seeing a 5' 5" ranga going postal, but they vacated the table and you should see them scurry if they are sitting there when I walk in for lunch somedays now.

Actually I just trimmed my goatee today, I've had one for over twenty years now. Don't like it too long.

I would have fallen out of my chair had you posted a pic of you with a goatee.

All I keep seeing now is that Seinfeld episode where George and Mike were fighting over that car parking spot and hearing, "He's So Phoney!" :D

Well it's not as dark as Lee's, there are a few more grey whiskers these days.

Too bad they both missed out on the fight night. Loved that sidewalk interaction of passersby.

Well now, you both look about how I imagined you.  That is spooky.  I have an image of most people on the board when I read their posts.  When they do post pictures they are never like my images of them, however you two are.

I go along with the Lee Arenberg from Seinfeld look alike.  It is quite uncanny.  :o

Now I have to say this.    I sailed on the re-enactment of the First Fleet from Mauritius to Australia for the bicentennial in 1988.  I sailed on the Anna Christina.  The second smallest ship in the fleet.  I did however step on board Endeavour once.  :)

I was looking for something else when I came across these.

Every Australia Day there is always someone who has to bring up the subject of changing the National Flag.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist and say no. I just think of all those people who went to battle and who died fighting for our country.
