  1. Me too, have watched today's movement with a dropped jaw. At the risk of appearing really stupid, what is going on? Have checked with ASX announcements etc and can find nothing to account for this incredible rise (may it continue tomorrow), but it certainly is welcome.

    Results may have been promising but this sort of rise?


    I agree with you, at times I feel seasick with the movement of the vessel. I thought we were on the right road when Germany and France stepped in to the European situation but then, as you say, the Republicans decided they would wring every concession and off we went again. Good strong scotch called for, commonsense tells me that an agreement will be reached but the acrimony involved in the US politics makes you wonder if the child will break the toy rather than give it to the other side. If they get it sorted rather than plunging us headlong into stormy seas again I will provide canapes and champagne on the 3rd August.


    Unfortunately I don't think the rough weather is over yet, but strong stomachs will (hopefully) prevail


    Shame on you Cranswick - not title from here on in. Nasty I propose we turn this ship into a pleasure cruiser, I'll do the cooking, you do the bar and we will lift the operation to such heights that ex Captain Cranswick will be pleading to come aboard. Frodo you are on notice too, no more visits to the engine room till you tell us you are prepared to take over command.


    This is why I ventured above decks, I have been stowed away in the hold since the vessel stopped at island 247. I had no intention of making my presence known as I was sure I would end up with all the cooking and washing chores but the need to vote for Nasty's inclusion on the board flushed me out. I've left a curry simmering in the galley just to prove I exist but I'm heading back to my

    hidey-hole now. Incidentally its amazing how much gossip you can hear when the forward hatch is open so just remember, if anyone comes looking, I know where all the dirty linen is stored. I have no intention of being made to walk the plank in the near future as I think we are sailing into tropical waters and I do love the sun.


    and I wasn't swayed by his planking prowess (if you'll pardon the pun) he looks like Captain Cranswick has secured him with the cables


    Just received the call, as you say veeone it will be interesting for the directors if they take the time to listen to comments.


    good grief what is going on, have checked asx and can't see what would have caused this leap, mind you I'm not complaining :biggrin:
  2. Subject: Retired


    Yesterday I was at Wal-Mart buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet Sheriff the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when woman behind me asked if I had a dog.


    What did she think I had, an elephant? So since IÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didnÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldnÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that IÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s in both arms.


    I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)


    Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish SetterÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s ass and a car hit us both.


    I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Wal-Mart wonÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t let me shop there anymore.


    Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think.

    Would appreciate it if anyone has the link for the phone canvassing skit where the householder, fed up with the calls, pretends to be a detective investigating a murder. The link was put up a couple of months ago but I have lost it and, having thought it was extremely funny, would like to revisit it.

    thanks for the reply alonso, I don't know who did the skit, someone posted a link a few months ago. I thought I had posted this on a little Friday humour so will stick it up there in the hope the person who posted the link sees it. I think the link went to a Utube site, but memory could be faulty lol http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif

  5. Hi guys, as we all need more laughs today can anyone post the link to the Phone Canvassing audio, it deals with someone who is fed up with the constant calls and pretends to be a detective investigating a homicide, I thought it was one of the best I had heard and would appreciate it if someone can steer me in the right direction.
