Wall of Death with Lion in Sidecar

Walls of Death used to be fairly common at Carnivals and Shows until the 1960's. I can remember seeing one at the reserve opposite the Coburg Town Hall (Vic) in the late 1960's. The Health and Safety Dictatorship has probably banned them now. I would have loved to see Ethel and her friend.

Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo

I went up to spray the blackberries and burn off a bit a few weeks ago. Down near the dam a Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo came very close to me. It spent its time tearing the bark off a few Black Wattles looking for grubs.

GT380 Points Problem

I've run into a small problem with the GT380. The points on the bike are shot so I ordered a new set on ebay. The new ones arrived however they don't fit the breaker plate. The points were advertised as fitting my model (1976) however it seems that my engine has a first model breaker plate that uses different points. The seller has been very helpful and it's not his fault that my bike id different than it should be. Now I have to source a breaker plate for my engine.

Why is Gough Whitlam so Happy?

Why is Gough Whitlam so happy nowadays?

Because, Kevin 'Everything I touch turns to Shit' Rudd, has taken the mantle of 'Worst Ever Prime Minister' from him.

Really, I cannot think of anything that Rudd has done that hasn't turned to Crap. Can You?
