no idea about the engine, it could even just be a trailer with that pole coming out the front. I have been following Les since his shows and me eating green ants etc at school. I regularly look for an "online" copy of the snack maps and last month found some water cherries so i planted them in the yard.

No, just had a look for it and saw bits....It gets pretty colourful up north when the community is tropo, The best stories I remember quickly were the 4000 acre fire that the fire brigade asked if we could inform them before next time, the WW2 bomb that I went out to blow up with the police, smelly croc skin hunters fleeing mainly their ex wives...

Russell Coight was based on Troy Dann. But Russell Coight was funny, Troy Dann wasn't meant to be. I've googled too, there's not a lot out there of Troy.

I used to watch his shows every now and then.How big are the water cherries atm,they say they are a bit sour tasting to eat off the tree but added to water are a good drink.

They have ended fruiting, about 3 months ago at their prime they were sweet but I don't mind some tart, at the end of the fruiting they were not as sweet. They would be ok in a drink but I just grab handfuls as I walk as it is not my tree. I think they were water cherries, they had a large seed, I am no expert.

This stuff is gold propaganda for tourism with this new internet thing, too subtle for the pointy head meetings. I hope The Higgins go ok with monetising their online endeavours, humm, where is Dick Smith when you need him?

I saw those pics a while ago but these have no bell shape, I decided to keep on eating them though. The one that I broke open to photo the seed was tart. This was the only one I could find left on the tree, the rest were rotting on the ground and unformed as you can see. I have a chocolate pudding guava tree that I planted nearly two decades ago which I saw people talk on the abc about, it doesn't taste like chocolate pudding at all...lies abc lies.
