    Not so much angry just ‘frustrated’ I guess , FINALLY got back working after the continual rain around Powelltown saw me work 12days in 6 weeks - not ideal after a quiet winter, we had a big week then the truck developed a strange ‘rumble’ ( for want of a better description ) , thinking ( hoping ) I’d done a bearing in a diff or worst case gearbox but after checking everything we investigated further & ended up pulling the sump off to discover a cracked block . Awesome . So the big red Cummins came out & I put a brand new crate motor in it . It’s done 1.7million all up & 800,000 since the last rebuild so I’m not complaining but the $50,000 bill isn’t ideal .

    I did see you on the freeway at Yarragon the other day, I tooted and waved and nearly fell out the window trying to get your attention, then realised you wouldn't have recognised the car and just thought I was some weirdo.
    Truck looks bloody immaculate for having done 1.7m kms!!

    Hard to know who or what to believe on this topic, but I recently heard Dr Karl Kruszelnicki talking about this. Very interesting. And that bloke is no dill.

    No doubt in my mind (about climate change) but find one of those towelling steering wheel covers a better option than rags. This one has been on the car since I bought it & did several years service on a previous vehicle before that. No fried pinkies & has even been washed to rid it of the stench of diesel & fish 'n' chips a few times.

    Listening to MFB/CFA scans throughout this morning. There is some f*****g morons out there, I tell ya. On a day like today they're incinerating shit in their backyards.
    Should be an automatic shove behind the bars for a month! You'd think after what happened 10 years ago people would have smartened up...

    Like others, not so much angry but waz somewhat extra concerned today.
    42C with some pretty decent winds and our neighbour refueled his petrol dam pump after a stinking hot hours flogging to find an exhaust splash exploded in his hot as fark little pump shed.
    Poor bugger has thankfully returned from hospital now with only first degree silly thong and arm burns but dead set nearly set our hills full alight for a happy merry christmas start!

    Couple of days let rest and thankfully recovering super well with a quick catchup/possible future suggestions tonight.
    Extremely volatile stuff Petrol/Mogas/Avo etc...:-(
    Other neighbours have kindly installed another oriental clacker pump in whole hearted assistance although he will be buying a diesel pump and or at least running additional pump protection of inside room mist/cooling heads if coin is temporarily unavailable.


    A fair point raised by young neighbour mate; “This petrol issue should be advertised”
    As you may see from the pictures above he has genuinely spent decent honest coin on contracting ‘Hebel’ block blokes.
    CFA first responder Legends also commended his efforts although educated also of Petroleum refueling dangers that our entire wider Australia/World community should but may not in fact know :-( ?
