    Ugh, ear infections are awful. My mama used to stick cloves of peeled garlic in my ear to cure them.

    I saw this a few weeks ago and it struck a chord with me, while not advocating the riding in the back of a ute, I think we might be going a bit too far over too the "safe space" mentality side of the ledger.
    Anyway back to watching series two of grumpy old men, :lol3

    Why not advocate riding in that back of a Ute?
    I spent a few years doing just that, whilst standing taking shots at rabbits and foxes . Never killed anyone... didn't kill many bunnies either come to think of it.
    Amazing this cotton wool wrapped world kids are now in. Sad really.

    learnt on friday when booking my car in for a service at 13,000 km by the young lady just out of school that the brake fluid needed changing as the manufacture states in there book it must be changed at a extra cost of $124.00 as it goes milky and loses its braking capability
    so oil filter -oil -brake fluid

    oh they do wash and vacuum the car free for you
    $450.00 :lol2:imaposer:imaposer:imaposer


    asked her to come out and show me the milky? brake fluid and cant do that needs to get a mechanic or supervisor for that
    must be done to keep warranty by them im informed
    the (ACCC) didnt agree with them so im not in there good books of just paying for nothing service plan

    Brake fluid is normally a 2 year item regardless of mileage.
