1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    Did it occur to you that Cooma may have been deliberately spelt incorrectly? :-)

    It's the off topic thread. No harm and it's been a bit of interesting reading.

    Speaking of place names, @Sfcootz you really need to visit Doo Town. Far more entertaining than Upper Penguin. Or Packenham Upper.

    Yep. Used to live down the road and still have mates there. Gunnerdoo and Doonuffin.

    Upper Penguin sorta kinda does exist, ie there’s a place above Penguin. It’s an old Tassie joke, I’d rather be Upper Cooee than Upper Penguin.
