  1. There's nothing bad in the water - no fresh water crocs. And the spiders aren't bigger than your hand. Although they do set their webs at head height so that they can wrap their webs around your face at dusk. And snakes only come out in the afternoon, and morning. They're only a nuisance if they bite and you die. Other than that - best holiday in the world. And if you like photography - you can take nice starry photos every night.
  2. Maybe Kimbers you need to think way outside the square. The wife and I go on two holidays a year - to the same location. For 2 weeks at a time. No pesky kids, no people as far as the eye can see, no internet, plenty of safe swimming areas, Wake up to unimpeded views each day, kangaroos and emus a plenty etc.. A truly stress free holiday. And only 1500 UK Pounds for two weeks. Bit of an initial flight to get here though.
  3. I've been building models since the 70's. These days they have to be big, cos my eyes aren't as good as they use to be. Plus I like taking night shots when i go camping. Millennium Falcon - Complete (90cm) Bismarck - In Work (130cm)
  4. Life continues to be a little unpredictable here in Oz. Impossible to plan any sort of interstate trip, even with a days notice. So pretty much every state is locked down in a way. I'm heading out bush for a couple of weeks, no phones, no interwebs, no people. Not sure what I'll come back to. I heard on the grapevine (Jeff Kennett) that there were government meetings over the weekend in Vic to discuss with major food distributors that the lockdown in Vic will last until the new year, so be prepared.
  5. This company was on the national news (9) last week. Big expansion coming. Good luck Michael.
  6. I remember taking mine apart some 18 years ago. And yes I remember trying to keep the brushes back when reinstalling was a bit of a nightmare. But got there in the end.
  7. Well that's new. Looks more like a custom tool for aiding installation of something...
  8. I replaced my accumulator back in 2017 (I've replaced it twice - 2003 & 2017). Thought it was the switch this time, but was the accumulator again. No issues getting mine off. In fact I remember it being really easy to unscrew, compared to other parts on the car.
  9. Looking back thru my records, I bought the commodore switches second hand. I did get them to work, and used them for about 8 years, then they died. Bought new ones from SJs when the car went up for sale. The one's from SJ's were the original factory colour - dark grey. Sold my car to someone in Melbourne a year or so back.
  10. Hi Robert, I went thru exactly what you're going thru with my S4. I went to my local Holden dealer and bought the commodore switch to replace a dodgy one. Found that the led was a different colour so had to swap the old electronic internals over to the new commodore mechanism so that they matched - colour wise. A bit of effort involved but the commodore switch was cheap. Then when I sold my car the other switch went intermittent, so ended up just buying new switches from SJ's in the UK (he still has stock).
  11. I still have faith in the blind prophet Baba Vanga, who died some 25 years ago. She predicted that the 44th president of the United States would be African American (tick). However, she also stated that he would be the “last US president”. So there's hope for us yet.
  12. Here in Australia some states and territories are beginning to see the light and now a government plan has been released for the easing of restrictions. Once an Australian state or territory has received '0' new cases within 28 days (2 x consecutive 14 day hibernation periods, as set by the WHO), they can commence stage 1. Stage 1 allows: Playgrounds, pools, parks to open / outdoor religious gatherings including outdoor weddings and funerals / Outdoor non contact sport / outdoor gyms After a further 2 weeks of no new cases, stage 2 can commence: restaurants, cafes, clubs, bars with a 2 hour attendance limit / indoor gyms / Indoor religious gatherings, including indoor weddings and funerals / outdoor sport training / galleries and museums. After a further 3 weeks of no new cases, stage 3 can commence: All sports and competitions including spectators / bars and restaurants no restrictions / cinemas For a country like the USA, I would expect another 3-6+ months before most states reach this zero mark, and with winter approaching in 6 months they could just be in an endless loop of despair that could run for years with their current government in charge. Interesting times are still ahead.

    This is my Covid Boredom Buster. 5000 pieces of creme/bone/off-white/tan & brown. It works just like the Covid-19 virus. Week 1: It's all too much. Despair, anxiety, Don't know where to start. Week 2: Much like week one. Sorting started. Week 3: Much like week 2, but now we have some direction. Borders done, but still a serious amount of work ahead. Week 4: One day (piece) at a time, but now we have progression. Must keep looking forward. Week 5: Feel better than I did at the start. As a team of one, we've made good progress. We have the outer areas under control. Just trying to isolate the inner areas and we should start to see the light and the end of the tunnel.
  14. My MIL returned yesterday from a 3 week trip to Italy, France and Spain + a 2 week cruise through the med. Re-entered the country (Australia) to a compulsory 2 week isolation. We've been updating her on all the problems that she would face getting back into the country, She doesn't listen or care. She caught a 90 minute packed train back home and says she's not sick, so doesn't see any reason why she can't leave the house to see friends and go shopping. My wife has given up and won't talk to her - beyond reasoning.
