    Apollo 11

    I was 8 at the time and we were taken from school across the road to a church were they had a tellie set up on the alter. I've been to the Parkes and Tidbinbilla dishes where they tracked the mission when it was over the southern hemisphere. There's a great scene in the movie The Dish were they leveled out the satellite dish and had a game of cricket in it while waiting.
  2. Mate, it's the middle of our two week winter period and i can't wait till it's over. Waking up to 7c for the last week.
  3. Everything is bigger in Queensland.
  4. This has to be the best thing I’ve heard since they started sooking about the underarm ball nearly 40 years ago.🤣
  5. Won the meat tray at the pub, barbie at my place.
  6. Surely that one one was a gee up! Pity it didn't have two little cups above the ram.
  7. Who to go for in the final? Bit like who do you barrack for between Leeds and Forest.
  8. 7.55 am over here, i'll let you know if anything comes up.
  9. My side Canberra Raiders has four English players this season with another one coming next year. Our co captain is from HKR with one from Bradford and two and the one next year from Wigan. Hard men. And how good are Leeds Rhinos going this year🤣
  10. They’re usually grown down south in Victoria where it can be as cold and miserable as over there. Up here in gods country our fruit and veg is supplied all over oz and Asia. The little town I come from has some of the worlds largest citrus and avacado farms in the world. Up here in Qld our annual rainfall would dwarf anything you get. Tully averages 4000 mm per year (160inches).
  11. Usually a serve of fish and chips even though more and more are calling them fries. Your crisps are just called a bag of chips.
  12. She’s an Aussie so the chocolate will be in the fridge and the crisps will be as far away from the fridge as you can get. For the record we call them chips not crisps.
  13. Born in Mundubbera, Central Queensland. Both my parents emigrated over here as a result of WW2. Mum’s from the Black Forest area in Germany and Dad was born in Derby (Shardlow). Both my grandfathers fought in the war for either side, Mum’s father never made it back. As a toddler dad and his older brother were abandoned by there mother while there dad was at war and placed in a orphanage and as a result sent to Australia and told that both there parents were dead. I knew were dad was from and back in the 70’s we didn’t get much info about your football but I can tell you exactly where we were when we heard on the radio that Derby had won the league in 75. As a result I followed them from afar, checking results in our local papers every week. In 2014 we decided to move to London for a while for work and that’s when I started to really understand what your passion for the badge is all about. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to get back over for at least 1 match per season even organising flying over for The Wembley match last month. The best part is I have been able to find some relatives from Derby that I catch up with every time we are over there. Sorry about your young fella mate.
  14. Chocolate in the fridge is a no brainer same with any dairy product, I also keep all my sauces in the fridge but nanas , are you fkn kidding me? What next, drinking beer at room temperature with no bubbles.
  15. Done the deep fried mars bar, bit so-so. Absolutely love haggis, first time was a bowl laid over cooked onion. Haggis and black pudding a must with breakfast when I’m over there. Here’s another favourite, just not in a fridge!
  16. That’s what I liked about the area, the beautiful people haven’t got in and spoiled it.
  17. Been caught out once. Unfortunately I’m usually booking holidays 6-9 months out so it can be a pain.
  18. We really enjoyed Carcassonne, Toulouse and Nice down south. They didn’t seem to speak as much English down there but the missus can speak French so wasn’t too bad. Went into Nice and out of Toulouse with Easyjet and trained between the others.
  19. I would have to say Lisbon, maybe Istanbul but the flight is longer. When we worked in London we went to Bordeaux and Prague for weekend trips and found everything reasonably priced.I’ve travelled the world a fair bit the last 10 or so years and just set what we are comfortable with and go for it. We’ve spent a bit of time in Iceland and Norway the last few trips and even there we just Air b&b and buy groceries in the chain stores and didn’t work out to bad. Just thought our money went further in Lisbon. I find over here in Oz has ended up being one of the most expensive places.
  20. No sauce on bacon for me. Yeah we can get brown sauce.
  21. Just caught up with the latest pages while having brekkie so here’s my take on things. 1/ Teams change management frequently but at this stage I’d be more worried about the fitness staff going. The next 3-4weeks will set up the rest of the season fitness wise and what I saw last season this was one of our major strengths come the last few rounds. If we have 2.5 mill to spend on a manager I think we’ll be able to find a reasonable replacement if needed. 2/ Butter always on thick white bread before the bacon. And talking about bacon, the thing I notice most when I go over there is how crap your bacon is. 3/ whoever puts their crisps in the fridge is surely taking the piss.
