    What; the four of them???

    On another subject can anyone reccomend an e-tag for us hill billys that only go to the big smoke every now & then?? The powers that be appear to have us by the short & curlies with cashless toll roads so I may as well move into the 21st century. Need something that I can use for the bike & 2 cars Thanks

    Call the RTA get a tag for the car and link the bike number plates to the car tag simple.
    No need to carry a tag on the bike, you will get a statement every month and when it gets low they will hit your CC for more funds.
    Set a CC hit limit that you are comfortable with eg $50.00.

    That is the same as if you have an Eastlink account in Victoria.

    This is why it is bullsh*t that we need front number plates on motorbikes for the toll roads as Eastlink have tolled motorbikes since they opened. :deal

    My wife of 11 years is Australian. Her folks are getting up in years. She's been here in the us for 20 years now. We visit about every other year. We have a good life here and things are easy despite the current economy. But I'm more or less estranged from my family here. I love her entire family, her dad is the dad I wish I had, her mum's a little difficult but sweet. She's got two brothers that I have always felt very connected to.

    We have a cat we adopted from the local shelter, she's great, she's our kid. The though of leaving her behind is just heart breaking. Yes we could take her but the process is not pleasant for a fragile cat. A dog maybe, cat not so much.

    WWYD?
