Peter: thereth - I mentioned this a while back, but there were implications as to tax, etc. unless a legal entity was created for the forum on its own. I'll try to remember to speak with someone I know who works in this field...

Chloe: My university is closed tomorrow due to catastrophic fire risks, also exams all canceled for me because of it. Got a catastrophic warning for tomorrow and requiring me to pack a bag and leave the house. Couldn’t imagine the panic on a large scale.

SA Hunter: Yeah, pretty grim where the fires are - our thoughts & prayers are with all involved.

spinifex: We now have a bad fire just west of Lincoln. Have already trucked our horses out 50km to get them well out of the way and our fire preps have been finalised. 60km Wind is expected to push it north towards our area later this evening.

spinifex: The aircraft are doing a tremendous job under very tricky flying conditions.

Chloe: All the burnt leaves and the strong yellow colouring of the outdoors has been strange, a very eerie feeling. Sending my thoughts out to everyone effected. I couldn’t have windows open due to the smoke around today, was bad enough

spinifex: We have another Catastrophic fire day looming on wednesday. 43 degrees and high winds. And it isn't even summer yet.
Nov 18, 2019 17:35:52 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - still away, expecting 43c & windy too. Looks ominous!
Nov 18, 2019 19:05:02 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hit 45c at home, 80kph winds. And of course, to keep electricity supplied to the big city Adelaide, our power was turned off till catastrophic conditions ease!!
Nov 20, 2019 15:49:19 GMT 10
spinifex: Interesting that the Adelaide Hills, also with catastrophic conditions, and many more large trees in close proximity to power lines, has had the power ON all day. I think calling our regions power cut a 'safety measure' is BS.
Nov 20, 2019 18:11:32 GMT 10
spinifex: Had the genset running all day keeping power up to computers, phones, fans and fridges. Spent the late afternoon at the beach ... which was very refreshing.
Nov 20, 2019 18:14:13 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Got my genset ready to go - but, can't find the key-turned the house upside down-nothing-grrrr.

blueshoes: G'day everyone, how are we all going? In Gippsland, it's "Summer" - 2nd December, 8 degrees and pouring rain...
Dec 2, 2019 16:19:56 GMT 10
blueshoes: SAH did you find your keys?
Dec 2, 2019 16:20:08 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi blueshoes - no luck!!

Your family tree must be a cactus because everybody on it is a prick. No I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you. Your birth certificate is an apology letter from the condom factory. I’m jealous of people that don’t know you! My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too. I don't know what makes you so stupid, but it really works. Behind every fat woman there is a beautiful woman. No seriously, your in the way. Calling you an idiot would be an insult to all the stupid people. They say opposites attract. I hope you meet someone who is good-looking, intelligent, and cultured. I can lose weight, but you’ll always be ugly. Why don't you slip into something more comfortable... like a coma. You're the reason the gene pool needs a lifeguard. Of course I talk like an idiot, how else would you understand me? My friend thinks he is smart. He told me an onion is the only food that makes you cry, so I threw a coconut at his face. Are you always this stupid or is today a special occasion?

A guy shows up late for work. The boss yells, ‘You should’ve been here at 8.30!’ He replies. ‘Why? What happened at 8.30?’
A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer. ‘This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it you.’ The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, ‘Which do you want, son?’ The boy takes the quarters and leaves. ‘What did I tell you?’ said the barber. ‘That kid never learns!’ Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. ‘Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?’ The boy licked his cone and replied, ‘Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!’
I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first. "I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please." He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?" "Nah, she can order for herself." And that's when the fight started...
A man and a woman were asleep like two innocent babies. Suddenly, at 3 o'clock in the morning, a loud noise came from outside.
The woman, bewildered, jumped up from the bed and yelled at the man "Holy crap. That must be my husband!" So the man jumped out of the bed; scared and naked he jumped out the window. He smashed himself on the ground, ran through a thorn bush and to his car as fast as he could go. A few minutes later he returned and went up to the bedroom and screamed at the woman, "I AM your husband!" The woman yelled back, "Yeah, then why were you RUNNING?" And that's when the fight started...
I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary?" It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?" And that's when the fight started...
A nurse was on duty in the A&E when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing, entered . . It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for an immediate operation.. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read
. .'Keep off the grass'
Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's dressing, which read 'Sorry . . . Had to mow the lawn.'
