  2. This is a thread in which we can post strange bizarre & unexplained kind of stories that either come up in the news or happen within your own experiences. Not looking for answers or explanations, just a place for oddities that you think are interesting...... So bring on your Tales of the Unexplained or just Plain Oddity :shocked::goofy::shocked::goofy::shocked:
  3. Inspired by the idea of the things people have been mentioning regarding the up coming seasonal celebrations I thought. Of a special thread that will allow us to send a special wish to anyone on PIO. We read of each others journeys, struggles, hopes, dreams & ambitions, well I thought it would be a posititive thing to be able to send out a wish to a fellow PIOer. I've just granted my first wishes To Naomi & To Pablo, & may they both get those things they are desiring & requiring swiftly & without obstacles. So Get Wishing Pioers & enjoy the spirit of giving :wubclub:
  4. Here is your opportunity to praise, to rant, to give social commentary or whatever you like whether it's trivial, topical or just plain silly (just as long as you obey the forum rules....) Let me kick it off with: Is it me, or.... are there more butterflies around Melbourne at the moment? There were four around the outside of my daughters bedroom window this morning, I felt like I was walking through a classic Walt Disney movie! Ok, your turn.... Geoff

  6. BIAB known as Brew In a Bag, is a new method of full grain brewing without tons of equipment and just as good. It will save you loads of money and produce beers far far better than a kit homebrew. Minimal equipment is needed and it really is easy.

  11. I am new to this forum and stumbled upon it looking for information to help me understand how to find work and move to australia, It didnt take me long to notice there wasn't alot of info in regards to the industrial/commercial pipefitting trade, are we really in high demand? and what are we classed as in oz ?,due to in the past being called ,industrial plumbers, Fitters, commercial heating and ventilation engineers, pipefitters. I think the problem is that the trade has so many different applications and doors and it is easy to be confused I am a 26 year old pipefitter, with 10 years experience,NVQ Level 2 in industrial and commercial heating and ventilation.mainly working on schools, Prisons, Hospitals, hotels and office blocks What am I classed as? basiclly i would like to see this thread used to connect people with different info and veiws i.e Working hotspots where pipefitting are mostly active Companies that specialize in sponsoring pipefitters from the uk guides to migration as a pipefitter

    The Call of Duty Thread

    OK guys. Share your thoughts on Call of Duty. Who's your favorite character? What's your favorite level? I have played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1 & 2 and Blackops. Favorite character is Captain Price with Soap MacTavish a close second. I have completed both modern warfare 1 & 2 in veteran mode (don't ask the number of times my character died in the process). The only levels I couldn't do in veteran mode are the ferris wheel level, the airplane level at the very end of modern warfare 1 and the museum level at the end of 2. How many hours a day do you play it? Currently I don't play at all :sad:

    PiO Helping Hand Thread

    Having just arrived I've been so grateful for the help and advice I have recieved from other PiO members. It got me thinking - alot of us come over with just a few suitcases. I'm sure we don't want to be spending our precious bucks on replacing items we already have whilst we patiently wait for our 'stuff' to arrive. So, could we set up a cyber library in the form of a thread for bits and pieces we could loan out, short term, to newly arrived members such as air beds, bedding, pots and pans, crockery, cutlery etc? I'm not sure how it would work in practice maybe a PiO Loan thread - members could post what they have and where they are then members needing to borrow items could email/PM to see if it was available. A bit like Freecycle but not for keeps! Anyway just a thought:wubclub:
  17. Hey all, Apologies for yet ANOTHER teaching thread, and the twist here is that I am an Australian who is looking at getting into teaching. I am asking on this forum because it seems to be the most helpful that I have found (if anyone knows of other forums, please let me know). OK, on with my questions... I've spent the last close to ten years teaching English in Taiwan, and I am looking at returning to Australia and what I could do there. Teaching seems to be one avenue, which leads me to my questions. I understand that to be a secondary teacher you need a degree in the field you will teach, but my undergraduate degrees seem to be a bit vague or don't apply(BA in Modern Asian Studies and B of International Business). I am looking at doing a PGCE to become certified, but I doubt any of my previous degrees would make it possible to teach secondary classes? From the little I understand about secondary teaching, I think even with a PGCE I wouldn't be able to do it, so I was leaning towards primary school teaching. My other question is about the work hours. I have seen some horrible posts on other forums about how teaching in Australian schools involves so much extra work that it will burn up your soul and any free time you have. I obviously need someone to provide a balanced view. I realize this is hard to answer, but right now I've literally no idea and anything would help. I've done a fair bit of searching lately and realize that primary school teachers seem to be aplenty, but I don't mind going bush in order to get something permanent. Any info would be greatly appreciate. Thanks.
  18. This will probs die a death because everyones too cool to breathe now arent they?!worried about looking(or sounding a beaut),i dont care,as yer can tell from some of my posts:biggrin: Anyway,DO people still have a singalong in the boozer/yer know the cockneys...Knees up mother brown etc etc,the welsh.......?

    Rugby World Cup Thread.

    C'mon England, even though I don't think we are good enough this time:embarrassed: OK, then........c'mom the All Blacks and any team playing Australia :cute:
  21. Nicked this one of sh7tman, sorry mate, couldn't wait any longer.:wubclub: Australian (White) history is viewed by some rather skeptically, short in comparison to many other countries of the world, but it is indeed unique and extremely interesting, so I thought I would start thread and see where it goes. I'm only going to comment on where I have been and what I know about, but would very much appreciate any further posts as I am like a sponge with this sort of stuff and love learning a bit more about my adopted country,:notworthy:. Cook in South Australia still fascinates me, though little of the original town or indeed inhabitants still remain it wreaks 'Australia' to me. I have been there twice now, both times as a stop off whilst on the Indian Pacific. As I said, little there now, but you (I) anyway can truly appreciate (nearly) what the earlyish settlers went thorough, not a lot to look at I admit, but truly a place where my imagination went wild and we were lucky enough to have a well informed fella tell me all about it when we stopped off,:notworthy:. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cook,_South_Australia

    The Gardening Thread

    I've had the nod from the trouble 'n' strife to build an allotment at the end of the jardin. The ground at the moment is a bit hard and my idea is to lay some old railway sleepers to form a raised bed. Is this a good idea? anyone? Also, what am I limited to growing this time of year?

    The 'Adrenaline Rush' Thread

    You know when we were kids and we used to do daft things to get a rush or just a buzz, where have those times gone. Jumping from the highest part of the bridge into the local river, putting bangers in cow doo and watching it explode, knock down ginger, the list is endless. As we get older these types of things seem to be lacking, 'responsibility' comes with age, or rather should do, and at times we lose the ability to have that 'rush' that we used to have as kids. So when was the last time you had a real adrenaline rush, one where NOTHING else matters, and for that moment in time, it is YOU, and IT.:jiggy::jiggy: I'll start the ball rolling with my few, they do to this day still make the hairs stick up on the back of my neck and for split fleeting minute or two I am enjoying the thrill of a bygone day. ALL MUST BE PLAYED LOUD,:yes: 1. http://www.soundsnap.com/tags/fishing First sound clip in link, doesn't do the 'buzz' justice though.:jiggy::jiggy: 2. [YOUTUBE]U1YHn9c3AAY[/YOUTUBE] 3.
