Sounds good Radar. I will. Enjoy Mission Beach. If you have trouble with mozzies or midges, go to Big W and invest in a bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care with Aloe Vera. We were put onto it a few months ago and the mozzies and midges do not like it. I have tested it and it does work.


 I will try to remember that

Yesterday I had about half a molar just break off, then had the joy of arranging a trip to the dentist to have it extracted. As a person who has had a fear of dentists since I had a nasty one as a child, this leads to sweaty palms, trembling & sometimes panic attacks.

Something told me to leave early for the dentist, which is only 15 mins away. Just as well I did, as traffic was banked up due to a nasty accident where a Prado had rolled over 2 or 3 times.

The dentist I go to knows my fears & is the ultimate professional. After waiting for the injection to work, a few pushes & pulls, followed by a bit of cracking & the bloody thing came out in one piece. This guy is so good he ALMOST makes it a joy to visit the dentist.

Today I am home recovering & doing the salt water thing. I hate how difficult it is to eat on one side only!

Ho fwdog, rest up. Age catchs up with our teeth too unfortunately. I went to dentist today too. My aching teeth are due to my sinus-s . Go figure that. Not complaining though as i thought this visit would be no good news. $174 for exam n Xray. That hurt.

I have known many dentists over the years rocket who charge to (as my dad used to say) "fund their around the world trip".

This one was $225 for an xray & the extraction. 1 1/2 hours all up. I was expecting in the $300's. Was about the same as what a plumber charged me for 25 mins work after 6pm.

I think we are all in the wrong business!

You are a devious Gentleman, Paul, just like me, ha ha ha

Without being told/asked, I changed the engine oil and filter, on the wife's car, (to get in the good books)

I then casually mentioned, that as I had recently change out a front wheel bearing, on the Motorhome, we should plan a little trip, to check it out, before we head east on boxing day

Fingers crossed, we have a short trip coming up, ha ha ha

Having a very pleasant relaxing day at the Boulia racecourse.

The Camel races start on Friday. Lots of camels here already.

We had a week camping on the banks of the Bouke River. It  really is one of the best free campsites in the country.

 Valkie hi.

Sounds like a busy day from one end of NSW to the other, that is the whole of NSW is it not?

Wait to you retire and can get a all day ticket to ride on NSW transport for $2.50. Best deal ever.

We grew up on the Coast, Wife at Wyoming and I at The Entrance moved north sometime back and we wanted to spend time in Sydney.

In 5 days left car and caravan near Newcastle trained to Sydney central, into a rented unit then played on trains, light rail and ferries with an odd bus ride and then on day 5 back to Awaba all at $2.50 a day, awesome way to see around Sydney town and travel on the ferries to see the beautiful habour. Of cause Manly for fish and chips on the Prome.

We live in Brisbane not as cheap but with changes coming in, it will be free travel between certain times of the day, very user friendly. 

Enjoyed a few good meals at the Wyong RSL , Gorokan Club and Killarney Sports Club.
