    I have my laptop and prepaid internet that works off the telstra Mobile Towers . It has the best strength of anywhere I have been in the last 2 years

    Lately I have been saying, 11 ish or 12 ish weather permitting. I don't make promises I can't keep any more.

    I hear ya.. especially those that have the squarish flutes. Makes it so hard to do the whipping. Then you get some that you can't go near with a whippy without fear of damaging them. I tell ya these new house constructions are done so far on the cheap it's a wonder they stay standing.

    Gees. Our maximums have dropped to a steady 23 or 24 here and slowly starting to approach single figures overnight. The grass growth has definitely slowed.

    Oh mate!! If only we could do a weather swap with you. This rain is getting to me so bad that I just want to go home, curl up in to a ball and cry. I think the other guys on here from N.Q. would agree with me on that one.

    I can't do anything, I'm depressed, I just had a client whinge to me about the standard of their job, and everything is wet and muddy.

    I can't even remember what dust looks like.

    Yeah, coming home along princess hwy at 6.30pm at a little above the speed limit and going through green light I get 2 flashes.
    Now I know what the fine for going undr 10ks over the limit and it will leave me with 20 bucks out of the job i went to do!!!!
    There has to be a better way - any solutions to this revenue raising?????????

    Have to say this John. You seem surprised. Why. Take the risk and accept the consequences. It is your call if you know your speeding then don't complain when you get a ticket. Sorry mate but I have heard that type of excuse a million times over and it does no wear with me. People will push any limit then they usually complain and whinge when they get caught. Only safe way is don't speed. I don't think it is revenue raising at all. Where else can you cheat the Government out of income. No speeders = no revenue

    Ok so I will bite. What else do you want. Allow people to do whatever speed they want. Don't ask the question it you don't have a solution. The way I see it people hate being regulated but if you don't people die and it is anarchy. People always hate the law. Until they need it.
