Thanks Greg,
I picked up one off eBay for $230 bit more than you paid.
Batteries are a bit of a pain but oh well. Bunning have 30 packs for about $20.

Couldn't agree with you more!

Watching Clone Wars in your own personal HT just really puts the cherry on the sundae of life! Or in your case, I guess it would be the shrimps on the barbie of life

Hey there Domz. We don't call them shrimp. That is an American term hardly akin to the mighty seafood that adorns our bbqs. Our prawns are more like small lobsters. And our beer actually gets you drunk. That's just how we roll down under

Ah yes, the old joke: How is making love in a canoe and American beer similar?

Spoiler!

I'll give you the prawn thing, but Australian beer is nothing to brag about . . .

You obviously didn't drink enough Nick. Our beer actually tastes great. But the more I drink the better it is. You need to find the good stuff.. not Fosters. I built my Danleys over pizza and fat yak beer. That is all I have to say.

It's not always about you Peter. If you want to be precise.....you did most the work (including that one little mishap), Peter the Greek turned up in his Mardi Gras outfit and I copped a money shot of glue straight in the eye. If we really want honesty here....

Oh I was just giving you a hard time. I was in Australia in 2003, and LOVED the XXXX and Toohey's and such. Went back last year, with a far more sophisticated palate, I'd changed a lot.

I did enjoy the Australian craft beer, when I could find it.

Hey Nick. All good. Great to hear you tried some of the micro breweries. I remember my time in the states years ago when I was actually getting drunk on your lite beers. In Australia, lite beers have little to no alcohol in them as opposed to the lower calorie beers over there. A few painful mornings before I finally asked the barmaid what the hell was going on! Glad you had a good time here recently.

Hi Greg,

Just back so I missed this before the weekend. Hope you and Tommy had an awesome time. Give him a big "Happy Birthday !!" from us.

Talk soon.

Cheers,

Peter M

The snow was brilliant ... we must have had at least 60cm fall during the week we were there.

The beer was most enjoyable ... as was the champagne, red wine, schnapps and last but certainly not least, the flaming black sambuca !!!

Cheers,

Peter M

Lego MilFals are cool, so are models, and pictures, and even die casts, but I bet tommy would REALLY get a kick out of a Milfal that was WAYYY bigger than HE was and 1 he could actually GO IN! Well, ok, through. LOL
