    Young P plater runs up the back of my car last week, Tell her I am going to go through insurance. Her father rings a couple of hours later all in a panic as she has a 1200 dollar excess. Could I tell the insurance that I back into a post and he will pay my excess.

    I say No way, does he give a damn that I will be without a car for a week, have to take 2 half days off to drop off and pickup. Its a good lesson for his daughter to pay more attention and not run into me.

    I look after two dental surgeries and both their private residences.
    The one I have been going to for years for dental appointments and prior to this line of work. It's also a big practice with multi surgeons and the rest of the team.

    Periodic Oral Examination, Full Plaque/stain-clean and an Radiograph X-Ray for a tooth as a precaution. $134 - Bupa (HBA) refund of $112 mean't I paid $22. (March 2013),
    Cheaper than a Lawn Mower Dude. . Well at least on this visit.
    Cheers Garry

    Always be true to your teeth, & they'll never be false to you.
    Cheers Fred.

    I'm not an Essendon supporter, but why do the media think it's ok to camp out front of Hird's residence, are they just waiting for him to blow up. If i was him i'd invite Ben Cousins around, that'll get the media into a frenzy... priccks

    This AFL/Salada biscuit saga has been draggging on for sooo long and will continue and continue too. To the point that Dr Who's new Peter Capaldi will have filmed 30 episodes and a new Dr Who will be announced.

    Happily mowing away on the ride on, and something gets thrown up, hits the tuning knob on my Radio earmuffs and breaks the knob off.

    Grumpy and Happy,

    Been carrying a second tip voucher for a very good client. Did the first job and used the first voucher 3 weeks ago.
    Today I finally did the second half of the job involving another large amount of tree removal.

    Half way to the tip and I can't locate the tip voucher, Grrr!!. Pull over and empty out the front seat/under/behind and can't find it. Bugger Grrr!!
    Change compass bearings and now head to our local huge soil place who charges $12 for tree stuff and zero for grass. No distance to travel as in the country things are close.

    Once out of the soil place, I discover my iphone 4S is missing and more panic set in then the Essendon Footy club could a muster as a collective.
    Go back to the soil place and the lovely lady gives me her iphone to take down to the dumping area. I ring my number and found it under my large pile of tree debris.

    MATE, Was I stoked and I'm gona have a few Crownies tonight to celebrate. May buy her a box of chocolates for suggesting to take her phone down there to ring mine. As being a male I didn't think of that.
    Bugger, got to go as my Crownie seems to have a hole in it as it's empty.
    Cheers Garry
