Trivia .....

Post  gus on Mon 10 Jan 2011, 1:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

Boy I'm slow. I just found out what the big white lit up B stands on the traffic lights in Bus lanes, it means Bandits get set and go Laughing Nothing more satisfying than filtering up into the bus lanes at the lights and getting a head start on all the sheep in cages.

The most common name for a creek has to be " Sandy Creek " Either that it or it's one long creek.

We have these creatures in the back paddock .Look like a large rat and i have been told they have a flat stomach ? They dig into the ground at night
like a rabbit would .Very timid and hard to get a good look at .I thought Bandicoote but have been told no .Lots of diggings so there must be
lots of them .Wet swampy area but they come out for new grass shoots .Any idea what they are ?
