Sorry guys, I'm usually all over the calendar like calamine lotion but the last few months I have been a little all over the place.

Hope you had great birthdays and sending best wishes to both of you.

Cheers  8) 8) 8)

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: CEWB Annual Season's Greeting Thread 2017/18.

2017 has been quite a stressful year for me. The year started well with a holiday in Hawaii with my wife, my brother and sister in law back in March. It was a great trip with plenty of laughs.

In April we moved out of our house to have renovations done. It was supposed to take 4 months but its only just finished this week. Still a couple of minor things to be done but the whole process was a nightmare. I mean everything turned out great but it just dragged on and on.

Earlier in the year my father in law's health started to decline and by the middle of the year we had to put him into a nursing home. Alzheimers is rapidly taking over and it's hard to see. Even harder on my wife.

Our trip to Spain to do the Camino walk turned into a disaster. On the first day my wife had a heavy fall and bruised her knee and fractured her wrist. She didn't walk anymore of the Camino after that. On the second day, I twinged my back and couldn't walk long distances, so that was the end of the Camino for me.

On the way home we said never again but we watched the Martin Sheen movie, The Way a few weeks back and got motivated to try again some time in the future.

Of course hearing about the passing of our good friend Raewyn (Elizabeth77) was heartbreaking. I got one of those messages from Facebook yesterday that we became friends on there a year ago.

Seeing that makes me think no matter how bad I've had it this year, others have had it a lot worse.

So I'm hoping for a much better 2018.

Yes folks, it's that time of the year again. This is the thread to post all your pics, memories, season's greetings etc etc for Christmas 2017 and for the new 2018 year.

I'd like to thank Richard for his work on being the administrator on the best website there is, KC and Matt for all the hard work they do each day as moderators and all the members and guests that visit the board each day.

As I say every year, I urge everyone to be with family, not just through the holidays but all year round. It's the most important thing in life. Don't take them for granted.

To everyone here, I wish you a Safe and Merry Christmas and a very happy 2018.

This is a sweet little film. A little slow in parts but Robert Redford is always good to watch and Jane Fonda is fine also. Not memorable but if you've got 110 minutes to kill.

4/5.

Enjoy my NFL viewing.

Am a Steelers fan although I make sure to watch the Raiders each week.

Foxtel in Australia has really cut back on the NFL in the last couple of years but I can still get some games.   :)

Are 7mate still broadcasting games here in Australia, PeterD?

The Aussie thread lost one of it's dearest honorary members recently with the passing of Raewyn (AKA "Shirts"). We had a lot of fun years ago and I was thinking today of that little story I posted and found it earlier in the year and posted again. I decided to post it again because I'm sure it'll bring a smile to your faces.

It's Toon Time! :D

Sorry Shirts! ;)



Can anyone see Shirts?  ;D

Shirts has been ironed out!  :D

She is not a fast runner like you and Stormy. I'm glad to hear you are ok. How did you escaped from that dinosaur? :D ;D



Well it was the damnedest thing. Stormy and I are trying to out run that great beast, Stormy screaming like a little girl because he's spilling his beer. Me screaming like a little girl thinking this is it, it's the end. My life flashing before my eyes and I get this brilliant idea of doing the "Serpentine" move. I'm yelling at Stormy, "Serpentine, Serpentine!"

So here we are running through the bush in zig zag motion and this completely disorientates the great beast and he trips over his own feet and comes to a crashing halt. Smacking his head on the ground and knocking itself out cold. Just as we're looking at one another and thinking our troubles are over and we're about to crack open another couple of tinnies, we can hear Shirts screaming in the distance, still being carried away by the giant Tse Tse Fly.

Stormy says, "What do we do, finish our beer or save Shirts?" I reply, "You nut, we have plenty of beer, but there's only one Shirts, Come on."

So we are on the run again and I tell ya, we would have given Usain Bolt a run for his money over that first 100 metres, after that Stormy got a stitch in his stomach and that slowed him down, but nothing was going to stop me from saving the day. I whipped out my trusty Smiley slingshot, and started to fire off rock after rock at this giant fly. Unfortunately my aim was way off and I was spraying rocks everywhere but into the target.

Next thing, I see this aluminium glint in the corner of my eye go flying through the air. Stormy has thrown an unopened can of VB at the Fly, sconing it right between the eyes. The Fly screams out, "I'm hit!" Well I don't know if that's what it said but it certainly gave out a yelp and loosened his claws around Shirts as she tumbled towards the earth.

Quickly I pull out a picnic blanket from my golf bag. Why I have a picnic blanket in my golf bag, I have no idea, because this was no picnic. Anyway Stormy and I have this blanket spread out and we're running to get underneath Shirts before she hits the ground with a terrible thud. We're jumping to the left and then the right trying not to miss Shirts as she gently floated down into the safety of the blanket. It was lucky Shirts wasn't a wet T Shirt otherwise she would have travelled faster through the air.

As we all got up and dusted ourselves off, we all looked around and there wasn't a sign of trouble anywhere. In fact there weren't any signs at all. "How the hell do we get out of here without directions?" Stormy says.  "Easy." I reply. "Just like in the movies, all three of us walk off into the sunset."


 :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

We'll miss you Shirts.

RIP

I was having lunch at work when I read on FaceBook that Raewyn had passed away that day. Her niece was posting and even though we all knew it was coming it was still jolting to read it. Everyday since I've been thinking should I say something or wait for the family to post?

We never met in real life but when chatted a lot in PM's. Raewyn seemed to be the kind of person that would do anything for anybody. I know you can't really know a person just from being "online" but she was genuine for sure.

We had so much fun in the aussie thread years ago. Great memories.

I'll miss her and hope she is at peace.

Madame

Quote
Anne and Bob, an American couple living in Paris, organize a dinner party and invite ten friends. Bob's son arrives by surprise and the total number of guests is now 13. The superstitious Anne asks her maid, Maria, to pretend to be a rich Spanish friend and join the table. Maria meets David, a British aristocrat. They both like each other and will continue their relationship.

A nice little film. Even though I loathed Toni Collette's character, Anne. She does play her part well.

4/5.

I hadn't heard about this until I saw your post, so thanks. It was an interesting interview.

The only way I found it was, I was going through the menu on Netflix's latest releases and one of the little squares was a pic of Clint.

I just stumbled across this series on Netflix. Clint appears in the first episode. It only runs for 32 minutes and it's very interesting.

It's similar to Inside The Actor's Studio. It was probably made early last year because they talk about American Sniper, not Sully as Clint's latest film.
