  7. Last chance for brand loyalty "Holden slashes car prices - up to 50% off after trashing their brand in Australia" https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2020/02/holden-slashes-car-prices-up-to-50-off-after-trashing-their-brand-in-australia.html Mind you the value of a current Holden as a trade-in might be affected
  8. Isn't there a saying about "A solar panel - - "?
  9. Now if you're a bargain hunter "Holden slashes car prices - up to 50% off after trashing their brand in Australia" https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2020/02/holden-slashes-car-prices-up-to-50-off-after-trashing-their-brand-in-australia.html Historical note - once advertised by a friend as "Holden - Australia's Own Car" (the official GM line) - or "Hold On - Australia's Own Heap"

    However think of the morale side. In an extensive agricultural downturn folk are pretty glum. So anything to smile about is a small positive. During a previous drought here a friend in US had more time than I did to "review the joke side of the internet". Which resulted in my forwarding to a group listed for "Risque emails". Tamer ones went to the "Semi-Risque Emails" group. To which both the joke threads here have contributed, though I was behind on tapping the last. And remember humour is one of the weapons on our side of the "great global warming and other crices of the day".
  13. Might be more reliable to set it to delete when you shut down the computer?
  14. "Julia Gillard paid GMH millions and promised us as a result Holden was guaranteed to stay until 2022" https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2020/02/julia-gillard-paid-gmh-millions-and-promised-us-as-a-result-holden-was-guaranteed-to-stay-until-2022.html
  15. Work fascinates me. I can watch it for hours.
  16. No more local production. Ford still has its design and engineering here IIRC And to think we made P & W R 1830 engines here in WW2
  17. "Australia loses an icon - Holden is dead." https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2020/02/australia-loses-an-icon-holden-is-dead.html
  18. How to confuse an Irishman "Point him at a line of shovels and tell him to take his pick" By the way the best tellers of Irish jokes are the Irish
  19. Does that mean that we can question your choice of religions?
  20. Ummm! Two of the smartest people I know are blonde and female
  21. Re "Old vs new galvanizing" We have some high tensile fencing wire that came out of Germany pre-WW 1, brand was "Neptun" (IIRC on brand spelling as that is how I heard it from Dad) It is as good as present high tensile wire in that it has never gone snappy so no problems joining etc. Some of it has gone around probably three times. And it has a galvanised coating thicker than your favourite politician's hide, so it is only now starting to rust where it was left in the holes of wooden posts - often on the ground before re-use.
  22. Advice I once got about that "but" "Ignore everything that came before the "but" and listen very carefully to what comes after".
  23. Add "government intelligence " to that But "government enthusiasms" seems to be recognised as a term
