    Three Hummock Island.

    I thought you were more Penguin, but you are Burnie, I see from searching. Not that different.
    This is more Stanley / Smithton.

    Thought the Cape Barron Goose might have got you guessing.

    Loved Stanley - but 3 Hummock was another world of peace.

    Would never have guessed that;) . When I was 8 yrs old in Tas I didn't know there was a world outside other than my own world:p. Did know there was a bakery down the road that I was sent to on Saturday morning to get a full hi top loaf & my mum was happy if I came home with a full half loaf & a hollowed out other half!!:):p:D.
    Cheers

    Similar experience when I was working in the Solomon Islands (1981/83) ..... water skiing every Sunday morning and Iron Bottom Sound was like glass @ 6.00am and you'd get flying fish beside you on a ski but stepping off to barefoot would scare them away.

    Hmmm.... Oddly enough every native born Taswegian I've ever worked with had the same view. OK it's only been one but that makes it 200% across the board now.

    I've got two & give one to you. You have none to start. You now have 100% more than you had before & I have 50% less than I had making a total of 150%. I now give you my 2nd one & you have 200% more than you started with & I have none.
    Doubled that pretty quick;):p:D.
    "Lies, damn lies & statistics!" Any government jobs going:p:p:p:rolleyes:.
    Were the other Tas party 8 years old @wirrah;):confused:.

    He had zero to start with so cannot have an increase of any % and you have a loss of 100% yet you gave away 50% and 100%

    If I have nothing & then I have something surely I've improved my situation by some percentage:p.

    It was evident that the Pool Salt Chlorinator was not cutting it even though only 7 years old so bit the bullet and enquired @ a couple of places - manufacturer RRP inc. $1514.00 :eek: ..... Pool shop I've used for years no discount but managed to get it for $790.00 inc & with finally a sunny afternoon (for the 1st time in a week) removed old and installed new :), programmed and it's running :D.
    Now to get the pool sparkling again after the recent rain ..... this hole in the ground takes up so much time :confused: (& it's not the 1st house with a pool we've owned)

    Yes. You have increased your situation by an infinite percentage.

    Well he was 8 at one stage but he gave the impression he held the belief until he started working!

    If you have 0 and multiply by 100% what do you have?

    Sitting on the deck of a cabin at Old Bar......nice n dry after a night of torrential rain.
    Our last two nights on the road and chose a cabin after looking at the bom radar....
    Turns out to be a wise move.
    Sun is breaking through the clouds and it looks like it’s going to be a great day.

    Oh, all that and I retire at the end of next week.....:D
    Long story but I am now free of the shackles of work .......
    Happy days :cool:
    Cheers,
    Mark
