  1. Several options crossed my mind. But I was more bemused by the fact that their security detail cleared everyone from the lift but me. I'm now concerned that I must look like one of them?!
  2. Got in the lift yesterday and Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch (and others) got in. Now there's a week of extremes. A couple of guys who have more wealth than they could ever hope to spend ... versus a couple of families at the start of the week who lost the only things that mattered.
  3. My wife just sent me down town on an errand which took me past the site. The main area is screened off as a crime scene, but in the next section down there's a huge pile of flower bouquets that people are leaving and gathering around. On the walk through the city it's the usual workers and xmas shoppers ... no sign of anything untoward ... as it should be. I'm guessing and hoping that not much will change other than some small memorial to remind people that two decent people and a sh*t-bag lost their lives there. Actually ... ignore the sh*t-bag.
  4. Good memory! Yep, my middle son is a cop in the burbs. Coincidentally in an area with a high concentration of muslims. Most of them fairly ordinary Aussies ... but a handful wanting to hijack their religion for hatred. It's a funny old world!
  5. Hey Scott. The siege was a couple of blocks down from my office. Like a lot of places, we went into lock down because his initial claims were that he'd planted bombs in a few key locations and that he had support. Not true in the end. Sydney returned to normality very quickly in most observable ways, but it will be interesting to see what lasting impacts it has ... if any. And it's a glorious summer day down here. Thank you global warming!
  6. Problem With Decal

    Like this ... And this ...
  7. Problem With Decal

    I'm guessing he is using water slide decal paper. I have some A4 sheets somewhere ... some are clear, some are white. You can print a logo (or any image) on it using a printer or photocopier; cut out your logo; immerse it in water; and the top very thin plastic sheet slides on to your headstock ... just like those temporary tattoos you could get as a kid. In my experience you need to shoot A LOT of clear over them to get the edges to disappear. One trick is to cut as close to the edge of your logo as possible so it's less obvious.
  8. This Just Ain't Right

    'Smoke On The Water' anyone?
  9. Misc Stuff About Life IV

    Australia is renowned for extreme weather patterns ... hell, our national anthem even refers to it. And I'm sure it must seem to you guys that upwards of 50% of our country is either flooded; hit by bush-fires; or in drought ... or all three at the same time! And that's probably true. But the great bulk of Australians live around the edge of the country ... no-one lives in the middle ... we don't even know if there is a middle; we've never bothered looking. 'Cos that's where 90% of the bad stuff occurs. But from time to time the other 10% of the bad stuff hits populated areas ... and sometimes quite badly. All of that said ... I'm in Sydney and we don't get much of the extreme stuff at all. Queensland, the Northern Territory, and the northern parts of Western Australia cop it all. Today? Well it's a glorious Autumn (Fall?) day in Sydney. But ... We keep hearing that climate change will bring about more extreme weather conditions so who knows. Hopefully you're in the clear Mike.
  10. Goals For 2012

    Struth !!! Double struth !!!
  11. Misc Stuff About Life IV

    EXACTLY!! As I said, I've never understood this. I've seen it come up on other blogs and fora and it just messes with people's heads. Were the previous partners bigger / better / longer / stronger?? What number is low enough not to seem like a sleaze ... but high enough not to seem like a prude or momma's boy? I JUST DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!! Actually ... I don't plan on sleeping with anyone on this forum ... because the only one's of you vaguely close enough are Muzz and Perry ... and ... well ... Anyway ... You should all feel free to share your sleazy pasts in Part V of this thread. [Forgive me if I abstain]
  12. Misc Stuff About Life IV

    I've never understood discussing this stuff with 'the one you're with'. No good can ever come of it. I don't want to know ... and I don't tell. That was then ... this is now. But that's just me
  13. Misc Stuff About Life IV

    Queensland is our Arizona ... they ignore it too. We just finished Daylight Savings ... with an extra hour of sleep ... so I'm not complaining.
  14. Misc Stuff About Life IV

    That's the plan. Most of the recipes on the net are very similar to what I posted above ... so I guess it's time to experiment.
