    There was an Aussie guy with a tree forum that used to go on about that quite a bit.

    No mud here that's for sure, still really dry and water restrictions on now. Sydney got a lot of rain but nothing here except a storm last week.

    I made one out of a extending pool cleaning pole I picked up somewhere. Just stuck a rake in the end and drilled a hole through to keep it in, small bolt with a wing nut and the rake comes out. Adjusts to what height I need. Too late to get a pic.

    Well it turns out it was only a four or five month old orphan cub about 40lbs or less. Sure as hell wouldn't want to mess with anything bigger. They found another two cubs. https://au.news.yahoo.com/twist-story-man-strangled-mountain-lion-bare-hands-025106134.html

    Every year for 45 years James and Lucille had gone to the State Fair. Every year James told Lucille he wanted to go on the helicopter flight. “Its only 50 dollars” he would say. Every year Lucille would say “50 dollars is fifty dollars” and that was the end of the discussion. On their 46th trip to the state Fair James asked to go on the helicopter flight, and Lucille told him that 50 dollars was still 50 dollars. The helicopter pilot heard their conversation and felt a bit sorry for James. He approached them and told them that he would give them both a ride for free if neither one said a word for the whole flight. If either one said a single word he would charge them the 50 dollars. James and Lucille agree. The pilot takes off and climbs as fast as he can and immediately goes into a dive, but he doesn’t hear a word from the couple. He flys in circles, climbs and dives, zigs, zags, and everything in between. The couple never say a word. Finally, he lands the helicopter. Over the headset he says “I’m really impressed. I did everything I could to get a reaction from you two.” James says “well, I almost told you to stop when Lucille fell out, but hey, 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”

    Part 1 of 2, The Great train Robbery. Might not interest some of you but it was big news when it happened, only thing that got it off the front page was JFK a few months later. I remember it all, they found Ronald Biggs here years later and he got away to South America. Most of the money was never found, 2.6 million English pounds then is equal to around $60 million US now so it was a big deal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Train_Robbery_(1963) Most of them didn't end up too well though. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-21619150 Was interesting to me anyway. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Foyb5HCeM6s" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It's not that hard, you get used to it after a few years. Slow cooked chicken leg curry tonight with stuff from the garden and brown basmati rice. I don't eat chicken skin so buy bulk legs and make them look like this.

    Ha, sounds like me when I went for the bone scan. I was only about five minutes away then, turned up Tuesday and it was for Thursday. They fitted me in anyway. Waiting for the verdict and this doctor came out with a real concerned look on his face. I thought that's it, I'm stuffed. He said "do you know you have a cracked rib". Yep, I've had a few. Best news that week.

    Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger are sitting in a bar Sylvester Stallone says, “Guys, we should make a movie with the three of us, but I’m all out of ideas at the moment, I’m kind of bored with the standard action flicks.” Chuck says, “Guys, I’m bored of doing action movies too and I’ve got some ideas but you may not like them.” Sylvester says, “Let us hear it.” So Chuck continues, “All right, this may sound silly, but I was actually thinking about doing a movie on great classical composers.” That’s when Arnold throws himself in the conversation and says, “That sounds like a great idea! Sylvester, you can be Mozart, and Chuck can be Beethoven!” “And who will you be, Arnold?” “I’ll be Bach.” #-o

    Been pretty good here so far this year considering it's so dry. But a big out of control fire just north today, whole town evacuated this afternoon. Going to be hotter tomorrow and more wind so it doesn't look good. https://www.9news.com.au/2019/02/12/15/05/news-nsw-bushfire-tingha-northern-tablelands-advice

    Thanks for all the work you've done with this and before. I haven't bothered going to the homepage for ages, there's some good pictures on the Rotator. Lots of old ones of old members, some are still here. Edit. These guys still hang around. Some good Rotator pictures in this thread, someone needs to give it a bump. https://www.masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?13688-Groovy-Rotator-Screenshots&highlight=rotator+screenshots Edit again. That picture just turned up in that thread.:laughing6:

    They should re market that thing, it'd sell well in some places. You don't have Ikea? You're lucky, I can't stand the stuff but women seem to like buying it.

    Trifocals? I know people that have trouble with bifocals. I'm extra lucky there, I don't need glasses for anything. I like this one, colour is great without me adjusting anything. No manual with it but you can download one easy enough if you need it.
