  1. @Hitchooooowhat do you mean by annual leave or bereave and what sort of injury did you sustain during the 17 months working for that employer? Did you actually receive workers comp?
  2. Wait for another 'witty' response.

    Aussie weather

    Just heard on the radio that there is a storm forecast for north east NSW and south east Qld. Very windy and hailstones ...................... and probably heavy rain.

    The showers were forecast for tomorrow but I'm not complaining. We really needed the rain. Things were starting to look a bit parched.

    Aussie weather

    Yesterday my OH was in Launceston where it was 31. Here in Devonport the sea fog rolled in later in the afternoon and the temp dropped from 26 to 18. That was lovely. 22 here at the moment.

    Support or advice needed please

    Yes I know someone who was originally diagnosed with having gout but later was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. The pain was in his knees and around the toes. He was also a bricklayer. It was an immunologist who confirmed the diagnosis. I think it is quite a difficult thing to diagnose.

    Sniffing the air. The road past our house has just been resurfaced. Hmmmmmm the smell of tar.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    So that makes a fair percentage of newspapers print fake news?. Daily Mail, Daily Express, the Mirror, the Sun and the Guardian - all fake news? Which illustrious rag do you read then PB?

  14. Something made me very cranky this morning. Out for my usual walk I passed a small car park opposite the ocean. Only one car parked there. The occupants had just finished their Macdonald's breakfast. They gathered all the cups and containers together and chucked them out of the car window ignoring the large rubbish bin 6 feet away from the car. I could see they were waiting for my reaction. I picked up all their crap and even though I was sorely tempted to throw it back through the car window on top of them, I put it in the bin. Some people are just the pits. Rant over.

    A cousin's son had one of those cute Caterham cars. Had to sell it when he got married though.

    I know Morgan is wholly British owned. What other type of car is still wholly British owned?
  17. Yes, they are spam. Same old thing over and over again.
  18. Yes England does. I answered your query in the incorrect thread. Look at the Brexit thread.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I think I may have posted this in the incorrect thread. It is in reply to Parley's asking if England produced wine. "The English countryside conjures many images. With their beaches, marinas, glorious forests and national parks, the counties of Hampshire and Sussex are best-known as southern England’s prime holiday playgrounds. But now they are gaining international recognition for something a little more unexpected – award-winning English wines. Think toasty sparklers evoking the style’s French rivals, delicate pinot noirs and floral whites with the fragrance of an English midsummer garden. It seems that England’s southern neighbours have new competition on the European wine front".

    Why are British trains so bad?

    It appears you imbibe in your home made beer and spirits a bit too much going by a lot of your posts.

    Land Rover diesels

    Demographer Bernard Salt blames the "globalisation of manufacturing", or, in other words, learning that it was cheaper to build things overseas and ship them back than to pay Australians to build them here. " We have created jobs and opportunity elsewhere. Certainly in education, certainly in health, certainly in construction. In some respects we are bringing Australian workers out from the drudgery of repetitive factory work, and we're cultivating jobs in the knowledge industries". I don't know how much of that is bullsh!t

    I thought all the car manufacturing plants had closed. Someone may prove me wrong though.
