  1. G'day all! Just sticking my head in the door to let you know I'm upright and breathing. The main reason that I haven't been around is that I was spending hours here, and when I put a lot of effort into researching a topic and creating a post, there was no reasonable discussion, simply personal attack. At the same time the early restrictions due to COVID in Sydney and the frustrations of dealing with a GP who thought that the piece of paper on the wall proved that she knew more than everyone else, were impacting on me. So what did I do? Well, the wife's condition got worse and

  3. A Drover walks into a bar with a pet crocodile by his side. He puts the crocodile up on the bar. He turns to the astonished patrons. 'I'll make you a deal. I'll open this crocodile's mouth and place my manhood inside. Then the croc will close his mouth for one minute. Then he'll open his mouth and I'll remove my unit unscathed. In return for witnessing this spectacle, each of you will buy me a drink.' The crowd murmured their approval. The man stood up on the bar, dropped his trousers, and placed his Credentials and related parts in the crocodile's open mouth.

  9. One of the historic moments that made me proud to be Australian was when Malcolm Fraser ordered our navy to rescue thousands of boat people fleeing Vietnam. Decades later, a much more vicious enemy and a totally different Prime Minister. Afghans who helped our troops are in grave fear of their lives and what is our government doing to help them? Dragging its feet while the Taliban torture and behead anyone who helped westerners. These evil bastards have also ordered that all girls over 15 have to marry Taliban fighters. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-16/taliban-mili

  11. OME - Good to see you back, and indulging in your creative side with the resultant neat handiwork. Back in the late 1990's when I was going through a particularly low point in my life, I picked up some huge old timber trusses (10M span) from an old military depot shed. The shed (one of many on the former military base) had been demolished due to termites chewing up one of the sheds support posts, and nibbling on the end of a truss. The trusses were a mixture of Karri and Jarrah timber, and the shed had been built in the mid-1930's with some very good quality structural t

  12. Spacey, You've never done anything like that. You're one of the Good Guys. Red750, Fortunately the wife's cancer is not internal, although she has had radiotherapy in the past. Think of it as a skin cancer, and that's the closest to it. It's not one of the horrid, hidden internal ones. With COVID, elective surgery has been dropped, so she has moved up the list. Maybe this week and not next. Dax, The standard of my woodwork has has improved since watching the Rex Krueger videos. He's not one of those types who requires you to have a million d

  13. Hi, O.M.E., I hope you are checking in to see our best wishes. I have a bit of an idea of what you are going through. I hope they resolve the pain problem for your wife. As for the cancer, has she had chemo or radiation therapy? My wife had both, and hardly has any hair left on her head. Has to wear a beanie when she's out, which is basically just to go to the hospital. All the best to you and your wife.

  15. Agree with your comments, always wonder why people can't discuss without being abusive derogatory or belittling. Seems if their viewpoints aren't accepted, or the comments interfere with their ideological programming, they get angry and go on the attack. Which means they learn nothing new, or gain an understanding of how others think and operate. Love your woodwork, mines sloppy and lazy. Hope you're ladies operation is a great success and you have many more years together.

  26. Just about all ideas should be investigated when it comes to most subjects involving humans. As we discover new forms of energy/generation, other problems or hurdles will arise followed by research and answers. Our understanding of batteries and energy, may be still in the nappy stage, or earlier. Sure would be if stars were the other side of black holes in another universe or reality and that would explain a lot. There is a logical scientific argument for it, 🤔

  34. IMO, NZ has the best system, specifically for heavy goods vehicles there - vehicle owners pay on a per-kilometre basis for road use. Only vehicles under 3.5 tonnes there, pay an annual rego fee. I see no reason why this "pay-as-you-go" system couldn't be introduced into Australia, and extended to all vehicles, regardless of motive power or size. As other Govts have done, the road fee could be tuned to emissions levels, and thus encourage the uptake of cleaner vehicles. PAYG is a fair system, and directly represents the amount of road use (and therefore road wear and tear)

  35. It may only be250 watts but it provides quite a lot of power. The power input from the motor relies on a sensor that measures you pedal cadence (in order to comply with the law in this country) It does have a throttle setting that will propel at 6km on level ground without pedaling. This is an artificial limit again to comply with the law. It also has a setting that you can get if you made a small mod, this is legal but only off road. This will give approximately 25km with no pedaling on flat ground. There are 5 levels of assist so if you are feeling lazy you can let the motor
