UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 9 January 2007 | Views [603] | Comments [2]

Just to let you all know that I am now in Rockhampton.  Times didn't work out to get to the new farm last week so will be heading there the end of this week.

I am in an internet cafe in Rockhampton and having a look around here today.  I will then travel on to Bunderberg tomorrow (The rum they drink in Oz is made in Bunderberg) so going to have a tour of the place they makle it tomorrow and have a look around the town there.  Will then travel back up to Rocky on Thurs or Friday to meet up with the guys at the new farm.

It is 34 degrees here at the moment at 10.45am and I am stopping above an Irish pub just out of the town cntr - a real irish guy behind the bar too !!

I will update again before I get to the new farm.

Glad to hear all is well around the county.

Hi bud,
Good to hear that you are on the move again. Trust you to find an Irish bar. Just remember, stay away from the Leprechauns!!!!! Been trying to get your lad and Mel over to ours for a lads card night (Need to fund my trip to see you some-how).

Everything is good here, weather is great (Not!!!) Been three weeks without beer now and it's getting a little thence. Had to go into the out-house and smash some wood-up with my axe last night and today at work I threw a stapler at my apprentice. More concerned that I smashed all my wood up last night, than the lump on my apprentice's head.

Must go now, need to get to B&Q for more wood, then to Tesco's for beer!!!!
Left you a little joke below.

See ya,


Sheila, the Aussie housewife, got out of the shower and slipped over on the bathroom floor.

Instead of slipping over forwards or backwards, she slipped, did the splits and suctioned herself to the floor.

She yelled out for her husband Bruce.

"Bruce, Bruce" she yelled.

Bruce came running in.
"Bruce, I've gone an' bloody suctioned m'self to the floor" she said.

"Strewth" Bruce said and tried to pull her up.

"You're stuck like bloody superglue, woman. I'll go across the road and get Cobba" (his mate).

They came back and they both tried to pull her up.

"No way. We can't do it, have ta go with Plan B," Cobba said.

"Plan B?" exclaimed Bruce, "What's that"?

"I'll go get my hammer and chisel outta the ute and we can break

the tiles under her and release the vacuum." replied Cobba

"Spot on, you're a legend," Bruce said "While you're doing that, I'll stay here and play with her tits."

"Play with her tits"? Cobba said, "Not exactly a good time for that mate?"

"No" Bruce replied, "But I reckon if I can get her wet enough, we can slide her into the kitchen where the tiles aren't so expensive".
