    Haaaaa, me old stomping ground, learned to "pull" a pint behind that bar under Barry Price's guidance when he were the Landlord. That would have been around 1967 to about 1969. Used to get me a few freebies and some extra spending money B) Ryehill Cottages piccie, just to the left was the Bookie's shop, he were a strange un, big bloke, never smiled and always gave you a dirty look....

    In the second piccie, just past the Ford van was Rye Hill Cottages, I used to live at No4 after I was married the first time. Just past, two doors down was where my Mum and Dad lived, on Kirke-White Street. Glad I was right about the Rifleman. My Daughter collected loads of ten pence and 50 pence coins when she was born off the patrons at the Rifleman!! Hey Ilko, have you found any piccies of the Sir Richard Arkwright pub on Arkright Street almost corner of Kirke-White Street??? I've searched to no avail. John

    That was the pub on the corner and opposite it was a school, my young Sister went to it and my Mother was a dinner lady there for a couple of years. Now my question was, the pub just a bit further down Kirke-White Street, was it called "The Rifleman"??

    Pit Stop!

    Dunno Mick, but lets be right, just because you can ride a bike on the track, doesn't mean your an ace on the roads....How many street riders would be able to race against pros on the track?? Wasn't Stirling Moss a late starter in getting a driving license too???

    Digital Freeview Boxes

    We had to go satellite as TV around here is limited to about three stations. Too far into the "sticks" to have a local station. Our first was with a smart card, bloody costs were going up every year, about $450 a year when we had enough! Another ex Nottinghamian, an old mate who now lives in BC Canada put me onto FTA..Never looked back since

    Not quite a Troll Mick, but a cheeky poster, Trolls disrupt forums...... Friends Reunited used to have loads of Trolls, until it became a paid member site, I know I was there :o
  17. Been past where Caz lives many times going from NSW into Victoria, can look a bit brown during drought years though, but most of the time nice area. Droughts where I live are scarce, green all the time. Summers can be a bit harsh with the high humidity and high temps, but spring and autumn are fantastic! Three drawbacks to where I live, poor shopping, high summer humidity and the thunderstorms can get real severe and can spawn a tornado. I can live with those, I did live several years in California and did experience a few earthquakes, plus tornados are found everywhere on this continent.

    Not sure what your on about Mick, but I have an FTA satellite receiver, (Free To Air) in other words it doesn't have the silly smart card They are down in cost now from the origonal $200 to around $120 over here and use the 18 inch dishes. Won't say what I watch though I have to "re flash it" every couple of months with the computer from software I down load from various sites to watch my favourite shows, movies etc...Again, I won't admit to watching anything but free stuff from "up there" I did some checking a while back, and I found a dealer in the UK who sells the Pansat 2500A receiver that I use, it is PAL compatable as well as NTSC for the US/Can/Mex etc... Also Secam for anyone in France... The receiver comes with factory setup, in other words, it cannot receive SKY, in your part of the world, thats done via the "flash" software thats readily available on the internet for free I'm not saying you should do anything thats illegal Might spark a bit of interest? :D John
  19. No it's a cousin Caz, I think I gave you their website just in case I didn't here it is <http://www.omeoregion.com.au/winery/> I live in the mountains surrounded by Black Walnut trees, Hickory trees, flowering dogwoods, which are native to this area, loads of blackberries! AND the rivers are full of trout and catfish Nearest large twon is Thayer with about 2200 population, and nearest town to me at ten miles away is Alton about 700 population. I am close to the Mark Twain National Park, one mile away! Loads of spring fed rivers, all springs in the Ozarks and pretty close to the Missouri country and western capital, of Branson. The Ozarks Mountains are believed to be the oldest mountain range in the US, made up of hundreds of feet deep limestone, eroded down to their present height of just a few thousand feet above sea level. The water is sparkling clear from 500 feet below our feet and pumped to the surface by our own pump.....Now this IS country living John

    Why's that Caz?? Thats when so many Oz C&W stars came into being, and down here where I live now it's all C&W! We are not that far from Nashiville in Tennessee and just an hour or so away from Branson Missouri's C&W capital. John
