    ^ Hey no fair wert, you've seen us, but we haven't seen you?! . I'm sure we were all a bit anxious attending our first meet, but if we didn't push through that anxiety, we wouldn't have the great crew we have. Next time then huh?!

    Australian 2016 Census... WTF?

    Just heard the 2016 census will cost Australian tax payers 470 mill' over 5 years. Uhg. I received a paper form in the mail to complete and I just put an initial for first names. One of the questions was like "did person 1,2,3 (etc) do any non paid work around the house, ie; maintainence, gardening ......." . How is that helpful information for infrastructure?! . All that may show is we're lazy Ozzies, lol. It also asked who you work for, the address of the company , and of course how much you earn. I'm sure each time census comes around, they add more questions?! Census makes me so angry. Invasion of privacy. Grrrrrr. I believe in the future that everyone will be bar coded and have tracking device and traceable through satellite, not in my time, but I'm sure it will happen. Let's revolt

    Ever adopted a dog? Pros/cons or stories?

    Hey d00d . How nice to consider saving a dog from a shelter . I haven't adopted a dog before but would like to say a few things about it . You say she barks and appears vicious when in her cage/ kennel, I'd say she's scared and / or protecting her area, and may see everyone as a threat?! You say she looks like she's been in lots of fights?! She may be aggressive towards other dogs and that could be a problem if you have friends that bring dogs over or want to take her camping where there may be other dogs. What's she like with other dogs around her? Maybe she's not a fighter but been picked on by other dogs. If she is a fighter and your prepared to have a dog run or something for when other dogs visit etc that's great. She sounds like she'd be a good guard dog. Whats she like with kids? I know it may be that there is no history of problems with kids but it's something to think about. I know any dog is capable of menacing a child/kids. (Sometimes I feel sorry for dogs with what they have to put up with with kids, lol. ) Does the shelter know any history of the dog? What happened to previous owners, how did the dog end up there ? Is it a fence jumper? I love dogs. Dogs are great and most homes should have one, lol. It would be a hard decision choosing a dog from a shelter, but good for you d00d, I am sure you will end up with a best friend and be able to help the dog fit into your way of life. It would feel good to bring a dog home from a shelter who hasn't had such a great life, and love it like its never been loved before .

    ^ Where's that positive Sallubrious I've long admired?! . Sad for me to read things are not good for you. Thinking of you and your family. I wish I could create a better life for you. If we are our own creators, why is my friend so miserable . Love to you and yours Sallubrious. May there be brighter times ahead.

    WTF are these arrows

  24. Thanks Ronny, This is great news. Really looking forward to December 2017. I'd like to nominate Evil Genius (our SAB mod') to be a guest speaker at EGA. He is an authority on cactus, written books on cactus etc... Maybe someone else can put forward a more convincing spiel as to why we should have Evil Genius attend EGA as a speaker, lol, but he is seriously the man, the cactus man
