    I'm a bit like you, I know at times that I can dominate the conversation and I try not to, but I like telling stories. And I was just lucky that one time, it lasted 6 years until I had my big burn out. I never found such a place again.

    I know what you're saying there @Luca, I got lucky when I was 30. I moved down to Melbourne chasing work and was successful with that, but also the local pub was an eclectic mix of all sorts of characters. I was fresh down from Darwin with my brown skin and my jeans singlet and bare feet, I was...

    Just thought I should clarify why I agreed to your comment - because they don't fit men's bodies either. Terry Pratchet: One size fits all fits no one.

    I hate winter poll!

    Here's a quirky thought for some of you - in the tropics you get 2 longest days of the year. Darwin is ~12 degrees from the equator, in early November the sun moves directly over head and from then on is south of you. Then in February the sun is directly overhead again on it's path north. So 2...

    Post something Weird or Random

    This one's definitely weird, but I'm very angry at the driver. If he'd blown a tyre he would have pulled over pretty quickly. Poor snake. (yes it's a green tree snake, completely harmless and docile) https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-12-06/snake-emerges-car-bonnet-family-holiday-nsw/101736950

    I hate winter poll!

    Darwin's the opposite time of the year to you, right now the build up is nearing it's end and the rains will start in earnest soon. So will cyclone season. Here's a little music clip for you, it's actually about Cyclone Tracy that wiped Darwin out on Christmas Eve, 1974. A Tojo is an old Toyota...

    Some companies make you wear a nylon shirt and that's exactly what it felt like to me, and at the end of the day I'd be covered in a rash. I used to always wear a cotton singlet underneath but it didn't help much.

    Maybe I'm old fashioned, maybe my vision's a bit skew whiff, I still reckon that straight leg denim jeans with a blue singlet and bare feet has a certain elegance. :) [Edit] It's what I'm wearing right now by the way. It doesn't matter what I'm wearing, I'm the trend setter here! Everyone else...

    You just need to find a better class of people. Or tell them you don't want to look like a grandma just yet. :)

    The Tread Thread

    The Chevvy 327 was an incredibly popular motor here. The bloke across the road from me had a beautiful HQ Monaro that he did up. The 327 got "ported". They were dirt bike boys and tried to treat it the same as their 2 strokes, they miscalculated and ended up having to rebore the ports in a...

    Here's a little birdie to sing back the spring for you. Just 3 more weeks and the days will start getting longer again.

    I did 20 years without winters, it's not easy getting used to them again.

    The Tread Thread

    Just a curios question, would this be what I grew up calling "extractors"? We were allowed to have them as long as they weren't made from copper.
