Shameless plug for donations.......

Well, it's that time of year again. Time for our annual 'Walk To Cure Diabetes'.
[http://oldholden.com...|Last year was a pearler.] We had a bunch of oldholdeners join us. We had a great time, met some fantastic people and raised over $1,000. Most of that money came from oldholdeners, not just the ones who walked with us, but you guys on the site who we've never met, but you still donated. Thank you.
Each year Rusty has given me the go-ahead to ask for donations to help raise funds to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. My son Dean (future oldholdener) has had diabetes since he was 5. He's now 14. That's 2-3 injections of insulin a day, every day for the last 9+ years. Plus 10's of thousands of finger-pricks.
You'll find our donation page [http://walk.jdrf.org...|here.] There's no minimum donation, and definately no maximum. If 20 OHers gave $5 each, that's a hundred bux. Fantastic.
You guys have been fantastic with your support over the years, I'm hoping this year's the same.
Wanna know more? E-mail me here: hrambo@oldholden.com

Wanna join us on the walk? You're 150% welcome to join us.
[http://oldholden.com...|Here's a link to last years walk.] And [http://oldholden.com...|here]

I'll remind you again next week, thanks for listening.....

......Tim.

Of course it's of interest. So you would've read all about it then. If it's of interest to you, I worked in and around the printing game a loooong time ago...
It's probably changed a lot since then.

I think they became Murfett-Regency. That's about all I know.
Leigh Marden is still going (last time I drove past). It's moved to Nepean HWY, just nth of Southland. A mate I knew at Murfett did his apprenticeship there.

Didn't it say, "From Muuurrrrrrfett!"

(I should never have worked in the ad game for a while. I recall too many inane &/or stoopid commercials...)

Yep, that's the place.
People would ask: "Wheredya work?"
I'd say "Murfett."
"Where?"
(In a frog voice)"Muuurrrrrrfett!"
"Oh, I know whereya mean.."
