Re: The ... What are you doing or thinking right now - Topic

Having lived in Australia for 56 years I have great admiration for the way our Police force conduct themselves. They go above and beyond to try to keep us safe. It is very easy to pick part of an event and show that on tv but usually (not always) there is another side of the story that is not shown....

Re: Auld Paddy Cunningham

Thanks, Netta. The only Hall family I knew lived in Castle Road, in the three storey tenement that faced down Broadway. I'm wondering if Annie was the mother of the invalid young man who used to be put out on the landing each day in his wheelchair way back then in the early fifties. I remember the ...

Re: Ardrossan - On This Day In History

Netta, The family intimation in the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald names the boy as the son of Robert and Lily. That sounds like it is Bobby’s family.

Re: Auld Paddy Cunningham

Hugh, the name Annie Hall rang a bell with me. Thought it was in relation to DanWatt. Bobby has confirmed that but we don’t know in what way.

Looking forward to some longer runs when Spring ar...

Re: Mac's Bar - Our Virtual Cafe

Hi Bobnetau, That doesn't seem to rhyme with the news we're getting here about lock-downs, curfews, 10,000 dollar fines and police breaking into cars because the occupants refuse to identify themselves. Sounds as though you guys are taking things seriously; not like some others. Good on you. JD. JD...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Our main worry may come from Werribee area as folk from there are in lockdown but may work in Geelong, orea.or vice versa.
