  1. That's a tough place to be 22B. Can't you have a trip back on your own once the borders are open?
  2. Not on facebook MR, find it's a massive time stealer. My wife joined up a few years back to see what our eldest was up to and where he was when he was travelling for months on end. Then, slowly, she's got more and more into it and you know it's a waste of time trying to talk when she's looking at her phone. She's nowhere near as bad as some people though. It's an addiction.

    The Bizarre Thread

    What was that ladies name in the 60's used to make plaster casts of the rock stars she'd slept with equipment? Just googled it, Cynthia plaster caster.

    Corona Virus

    Doesn't it seem a long time ago that this thread was started with "it's now in France".
  5. Yep, Thales own it all now. French company. As soon as they took over security gates went up at the Kuttubul entrance and no more wandering around wherever you wanted. Thales got their lease cancelled on a lot of the Island buildings and their head office in Sydney is out at Olympic Park now. Pity, there are loads of offices and buildings on Garden Island now just sat unused. It's an eye opener wandering round the old workshops and seeing all the machines, lathes, shapers, massive drills, etc all still in place from way back.
  6. There's a pie shop in Rotto that takes some beating. Off the ferry, straight to the pie shop, beef cheese and bacon pie followed by a jam doughnut.
  7. Never try and eat one sober. They just don't taste the same.

    How is Post Brexit Britain Doing so Far?

    Typical of car manufacturers. Wonder how much they got to locate their in the first place? They are just putting the feelers out early for more money from the government. People will be hanging on to their petrol and diesel cars for a long time after 2030. They haven't thought this through, the money that needs to be poured into the electricity grid for infrastructure is phenomenal.

    Relocating to Perth

    A once a year holiday to somewhere else in Europe with a few trips within the UK was the norm for most people from where we were from. Spain, Portugal, Greece were our favourites. Sure, we had the odd trip in the UK but you're never sure what the weather will be like. You can go to a nice place and the weathers crap, used to feel like we'd wasted money, specially when we had kids.

    Political correctness gone mad

    Used to love that. Will they be able to get the non political correct stuff in though? Loved how Margaret Thatcher always used to go to the mens and non of the other guys could pee when she was in

    Best way to save house deposit

    If you are on a temporary visa you must be crazy to think about buying property here. If you get accepted for a full visa, are serious about buying and settling, the first thing I'd do would settle the motgage in the UK and see what you end up with. Then put that cash into your Aus property.

    Best way to save house deposit

    Problem is with super you can't get it out until you retire usually. A lot withdrew money during covid, which seems like a good idea to me. Best way to save up is look at what you're spending and where you can cut back. Do you have expensive mobile plans you maybe don't need, foxtel, other things you can cut back on. You might find you can save a lot more than you think. Takes commitment though.

    Nope, never even heard of it.
  14. Not noticed any difference. Usually I have a kebab after being in the pub and for some reason always hungry. They've been just fine when I've had them in Perth.
