    Family & Relationships Interesting tidbits about your ancestors

    My great great great (?) grandfather was a composer who worked with both Gilbert and Sullivan, eventually introducing the two to each other.

    Bolt is a troll

    Hemingway nailed Bolt when he said "Critics are men who watch a battle from a high place then come down and shoot the survivors.”

    Yeah it was well done. Check out Mr Mercedes if you haven't seen it.

    Movie I think I just saw the worst movie ever.

    Dragged Across Concrete, because that's what watching it felt like.

    Unsolved Wonnangatta couple vanish in a bunch of too many odd disappearances - Enter 'The Button Man'

    The guys at work shared their Button Man stories this week, it's certainly been the topic de jour. The first encounter (I wasn't there) was when my colleagues saw his camp and went over to say hi. He saw them coming, jumped out of his hammock and ducked into his tent. Taking the hint my mates...

    Unsolved Wonnangatta couple vanish in a bunch of too many odd disappearances - Enter 'The Button Man'

    This was a few years ago now, can't really describe him apart from saying he's a grizzled, oldish-looking dude. Bit of context: we run river monitoring stations and remote area rain gauges for DELWP, BoM etc. The rain gauge at high ridge is part of a flood warning network for the Avon and...

    Unsolved Wonnangatta couple vanish in a bunch of too many odd disappearances - Enter 'The Button Man'

    https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/the-button-man-could-be-key-to-mounting-mountain-mystery-20200521-p54v4p.html Interesting Silvester piece here, and I don't think he produces these apropos of nothing. I've been half following the missing Wonnanngatta campers because I spend a lot of...

    Science/Environment Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Pandemic Declared - Part 2

    Yeah this is what I'm doing. I've got a basic faith that the govt has sincere motives with this app, but they can shove it up their arse if they reckon I'll let it drain the battery when I'm at home.

    Multiplat AFL Evolution 2 - Patch out now

    Ninety-nine percent of my time in Evo1 was spent in career mode playing as my created character. Third person camera, pretty close over the shoulder. I enjoyed it and thought it was a reasonable approximation of actually playing a game. My short, fat arsed player would roam the corridor, picking...

    Multiplat AFL Evolution 2 - pre-launch thread

    Will definitely get and play the flip out of, through gritted teeth. We all know it's going to be a very rough game, so I'm going to accept this gift in the spirit it was intended.

    Preview Hawthorn VS St Kilda part 2! The Morwell Emergency Services themed practice Match 4:30pm Friday the 28th of February @ Morwell recreational reserve

    Righto, I made it to the game so here's a few thoughts... I might only see live one or two matches a year, so watching a game up close at a country ground I played a bit of footy at offers a very different perspective to the TV. The surface of the oval was immaculate, pure grounds keeping...

    Preview Hawthorn VS St Kilda part 2! The Morwell Emergency Services themed practice Match 4:30pm Friday the 28th of February @ Morwell recreational reserve

    I'm at the game. Bit of a dour tussle so far, both sides struggling to feed it out of congestion.

    2020 HFC Pre Season Training

    Friend of mine works in the Bairnsdale DELWP centre, she said a few Hawks came in the other week to pick up a travel permit and a mini excavator. Not being a Hawks supporter she didn't know who they were, but one of them had the appropriate ticket for operating a digger.
