    Most enduring international chocolate bar

    Tiramisu, or strawberry cheesecake, both with thickened cream, or a drizzle of condensed moo jooce. Oh, and Cadbury’s milk choccy. Cheers, Bobj.
  2. Beautiful, Kev. The stone is labradorite, one of the felspar family. The chatoyancy is very good, Cheers, Bobj.
  3. I've got nearly that much in my 3 'fridges! Cheers, Bobj.
  4. The first crap cull comp was on the Albert River, I do believe. The comp realized 4 tonnes of crap that was given to Charlie Carp fertilizer. They, in turn, donated a few hundred bass fingerlings to enrich the Albert River. A couple of comps were on the Logan River, as well. Alas, it is no more due to high insurance costs. Cheers, Bobj.
  5. There is no comparison to barramundi, yellowbelly, or the murray cod, which are premium sportfish. I have seen a quality river, the NSW Barwon River deteriorate from a navigable waterway to a series of mud holes due to the crap. Cheers, Bobj.

    How long before it felt normal to live in Australia

    Nearly 60 years on and am still in awe at the wonderful sights, be it when fishing, looking at the southern Whitsundays, or in the desert, looking at an impossibly blue sky, or, the vastness of it all, let alone the magnificent and unique wildlife. Bugga! Getting dewy eyed... Cheers, Bobj.
  8. Watched the fishing comp between professionals on tv, held on Cania Dam, Monto. Some very good bass in there.and a few yellas and saratoga. Cheers, Bobj.

    Things you miss about Britain

    when I lived in Bradford, it was called The Black Dyke Mills Band. That was nearly 60 years ago, Kev. In Thornton, we had the Black Dyke, but the band originally came from Clayton, across the valley, 'cos they had the mill. Cheers, Bobj.

    Best suburbs for families in Brisbane and Gold Coast

    @Roadtrain Boy, g'day mate, have you thought about the Mackay Region at all? only a 3-3.5 hour drive to the coal mines and close to the fabulous Whitsundays. For the kind of money you are offering, you could get good property on a few beach areas. Just a thought, big engineering works in the city to cater to the mines, etc. Cheers, Bobj.

    Things you miss about Britain

    Not something I ever missed while in the UK as I had no knowledge of them, but in the last few years, thanks to the computers, I have taken an interest in ancient crop marks, not only UK, but a few other countries, too. A very big plus for Google Maps. Cheers, Bobj.
  14. News item in NSW had the newscaster call a town Goo noo goo noo, as it is written, but all one word, a few seconds later apologised and pronounced it correctly as Gunna gunoo Cheers, Bobj.
