With as much natural gas as we have billy, you'd think we'd find a way to put it to use in cars on a huge scale, but... < insert fuel company conspiracy comment here >


Our fridge went t*tts up this morning, lovely. The repair people are backed up for 3 days, but fortunately one of our neighbors is a very capable, former Frigidaire repairman.

Nope, I am a Melbournite and came to Oz 10 years ago. I know where Mosman is though.

 

Used to go to school in Toorak biggrin.gif and had a uni mate in a 911 Carrera S eek.gif

 

Good times were had by all considering we had access to Chapel St 24x7.

Sure! biggrin.gif We did that yesterday, but I'm always up for it. Luckily the freezer is okay, it's a separate unit, or there'd be trouble. eek.gif

post #3141 of 9498

Yup, Cabra used to be a tough and gritty place but cleaned its act up.

Cabramatta was the Broady of Sydney. Shootings, killings, racism et al.
Kudos to the Vietnamese for building it up.

I remember seeing a doco as how the suburb went through turmoil back to normality.

Cabramatta never was/is normal.

Australia is all about Football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars.

As goes with a Holden being a ripoff of Chevy tech...
