    Suggestions on places to visit in Sydney in April

    1. Take the train to Cowan then walk down to Jerusalem Bay (about 40mins). 2. Take a ferry from Circular Quay to Cockatoo Island and have a look around there. 3. Do the 'Bay Walk'

    Singing the National Anthem

    Well, I took up the offer of citizenship, relearnt the anthem off by heart, then at the ceremony the band finished at the end of the first verse just as I was getting into it. All that work and effort...:laugh:

    DAB digital radio

    Most radio here is from the 80's so it will have Buckley's chance of working here! :laugh: In all honesty, I brought mine out and upgraded it via the USB. It worked OK until it failed and those 'Pure' folk refused to do anything. I had a 'wireless' for 20 years without fail, but have in the past 5 years had to replace a DAB radio twice.

    It' not Xmas without....????????????

    Titanic sandwiched between two episodes of slit-your-wrists EastEnders. Priceless! But seriously, getting rat-arsed by lunchtime then sitting in a bean bag contemplating the next alcoholic victual.

    Art, music and cinema in Sydney!!?

    We enjoyed Bell Shakespeare's production of 'Comedy of Errors' at the Opera House. It has just started. You can book online (and can probably rock up to the venue and buy at the box office).

    Car accident advice please.

    This is not addressed to anyone in patricular, but unlike in the UK, folk can drive around NSW with nothing other than their Green Slip. "If you cause an accident, your green slip insurance covers medical costs for: your passengers other road users, such as drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, motor cyclists and pillion passengers injuries caused through the use of a trailer. Your green slip insurance does not cover: you for your personal injuries if you cause the accident damage to property or other vehicles." Note that the Green Slip will not cover damage to anyones vehicle. So if someone drives into the back of your car assume they have no insurance and that you (or your insurance company) will have to take them to court to recover costs. You need to get some basic info: http://www.lawassist.lawaccess.nsw.gov.au/lawassist/lawassist_car_accident/lawassist_after_an_accident/lawassist_exchange_details.html Or think of it like this. Some random person starts chucking stones at your house windows, smashing them. You probably wouldn't accept their word that they would pay for the damage. You would get their details (or call the cops).
