October 30th

It's Halloween tomorrow.

Here's a little ditty from a Year 3 young lady on my bus this morning:
Trick or treat,
smell my feet,
Give me something nice to eat
or I'll kill you in your sleep.

Any beer drinkers here?

At a national conference of the Australian Hotels Association, the general managers of Cascade Brewery ( Tasmania ), Tooheys ( New South Wales ), XXXX ( Queensland ), CUB ( Victoria ) and Coopers ( South Australia ) found themselves sitting at the same table for lunch.

When the waitress asked what they wanted to drink, the GM of Tooheys said without hesitation, "I'll have a Tooheys New."

The head of Carlton & United smiled and said, “Make mine a VB."

To which the boss of XXXX rejoined, "I'll have a XXXX, Queensland’s finest."

Hk identification

Hi all, just wanted to know if anyone could shed some light on a vehicle for me, I am looking at what is meant to be a hk Monaro, however the vin number is 80569kj101161 I believe this is the number from a premier sedan? And am assuming this has had the tags changed and not that Holden didn’t distinguish between coupes and sedans early on??
Cheers

Don't get all political on me

Turnbull looked at Shorten, chuckled and said, "You know, I could throw a $100 note out the window right now and make somebody very happy." Shorten shrugged his shoulders and replied, "I could throw ten $10 notes out the window and feed 10 people for the night". Hearing their exchange, the pilot of the plane said to his co-pilot,"Such big-shots back there. I could throw both of them out the window and make 25 million people very happy!"

How do you fix a broken WB mirror?

I have a broken driver's side WB Statesman exterior mirror.
Annoying because I just bumped it in the garage. The hollow bolt is broken because the mirror body is loose.
I have a spare mirror and will use its hollow bolt to replace the broken one on the car. That spare mirror is already taken apart a bit so I can see what needs to be done with the mirror I'm fixing.
The hard bit is where the cables go through the mirror base plate. They have tiny cable stoppers or swages.
