  2. Good Afternoon folks, it’s Friday Funny time again. A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says: 'I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 88th birthday and it's today.' The bartender says 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.' As the woman finishes her drink the woman to her right says 'I would like to buy you a drink, too.' The old woman says 'Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.' 'Coming up' says the bartender As she finishes that drink, The man to her left says 'I would like to buy you one, too.' The old woman says 'Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.' 'Coming right up' the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says 'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?' The old woman replies ’Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor... holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.'

  12. Today we travelled from Julia Creek to Winton, and are camped out on the Long Waterhole. It is super busy, so we abandoned any thought of a water view and went straight for a spot among shrubs and bushes. Peaceful down here. We see another Kedron up there on the hill…Phil and Gail.

  16. Hi Chris. That spot you’ve got looks as good as it gets. Cheers from Pete
  17. We are on the waterhole at the Julia Creek RV freecamp. It’s to a lovely spot and the sites on the water are popular. We managed to snaffle one and set up camp only metres from the water’s edge. We are here for 4 days. Across the water is another Kedron with Royce and Sue from Tasmania. We told them about our plans to go to the fabulous hot springs At Yowah, and they told us for their plans to go to a rodeo at Saxby. I have never heard of Saxby but hopefully it will be great.
  18. Hello members and guests to the Kedron Owners Group Inc website. I am looking for anyone who is computer tech savy to help with an issue on the website. I have a graphics background but no idea about the behind the scene workings of the website. Our current host - Invision recently changed there help to us and I find myself in a bit of a pickle. If you think you might have the necessary skills please contact me. Thanks
  19. Good Morning folks, it’s Friday Funny time again. Bob Hill and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe, as it happens, near Transylvania. They were driving in a rental car along a rather deserted highway. It was late at night and raining very hard with thunder and lightning. Bob could barely see the road in front of the car. Suddenly, the car skids out of control! Bob attempts to control the car but to no avail! The car swerves and smashes into a tree. Moments later, Bob shakes his head to clear the fog. Dazed, he looks over at the passenger seat and sees his wife unconscious, with her head bleeding. Despite the rain and unfamiliar countryside, Bob knows he has to get her medical assistance. Bob carefully picks his wife up and begins trudging down the road. After a short while, he sees a light. He heads towards it, which is coming from a large, old house. He hastily knocks on the door. A minute passes and a small, hunched-back old man opens the door. Bob immediately blurts, "Hello, my name is Bob Hill, and this is my wife Betty. We've been in a terrible car accident, and my wife has been seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone?" "I'm sorry," replied the hunchback, "We don't have a phone. But my master is a doctor, come in, and I will get him!" Bob brings his wife in. An older man comes down the stairs. "I'm afraid my assistant may have misled you. I am not a medical doctor; I am a scientist. However, it is many miles to the nearest clinic, and I have had basic medical training. I will see what I can do. Igor, bring them down to the laboratory." With that, Igor picks up Betty and carries her downstairs, with Bob following closely. Igor places Betty on a table in the lab. Bob collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places Bob on an adjoining table. After a brief examination, Igor's master looks worried. "Things are serious, Igor. Prepare a transfusion." Igor and his master work feverishly, but to no avail, and Bob and Betty Hill both died. The Hills' deaths upset Igor's master greatly. Wearily, he climbs the steps to his conservatory which houses his grand piano. For it is here that he has always found solace. He begins to play, and a stirring, haunting melody fills the house. Meanwhile, Igor is still in the lab tidying up. His eyes catch a movement, and he notices the fingers on Betty's hand twitch, keeping time to the haunting piano music. Stunned, he watches as Bob's arm begins to rise, also marking the beat! He is further amazed as Betty and Bob both sit up straight! Unable to contain himself, he dashes up the stairs to the Conservatory. He bursts in and shouts to his Master, "Master, Master... The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music…!"
  20. Hi Tony, is this new sign on your door?
  21. Always good to catch up with other Kedron owners, even better if they are members of KOG
  22. We are now just over the QLD border from the NT on our slow way home, and camping on the Camooweal Billabong. We chose the bottom billabong, as it’s less crowded. At a guess it’s 3 kms from the main highway to the bottom pool What a great spot. Lots of bird life, including egrets, whistling kites, a black swan, etc. This is a popular spot and by late afternoon all spots near us are taken. But no one is too close. The road in is a bit chopped up (they had recent rains, now dried out) but nothing we couldn’t handle with ease. I imagine it could get a bit dusty here but after the recent rains it is nice and fresh, In town is a good water point and dump point, so if approaching from the East, fill up before going out to the waterholes. And a bonus, last night we met up with other Kedronites who are on the forum, Liz and Gary Woods. It was great to chat!
  23. I can’t believe I didn’t reply to this post, Tony, and thank you for it. Our unit is still going OK but will keep this in mind for the inevitable moment which will be soon I fear.
  24. Must be true........ A new report shows that being overweight is not as harmful as is commonly believed, and actually confers some surprising health benefits. Being 3 to 6 Kg overweight could protect people from ailments ranging from Tuberculosis to Alzheimer's disease, research indicates. Those carrying 7 to 12 Kg extra are better able to recover from adverse conditions such as emphysema, pneumonia, and various injuries and infections, states the report. 12 to 18 Kg of flab could help fend off breast, kidney, pancreatic, prostrate, and colon cancer. In general, the report concludes, overweight people are happier, more successful in business, smarter and friendlier. The study was funded by a research grant from: McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC, Burgerman, Dominos, M&M, Cadbury and Nestle Chocolates.
  25. "OLD" IS WHEN - Your friends compliment you on your leather gloves , but you are not wearing any. "OLD" IS WHEN - You don't care where your spouse goes , just as long as you don't have to go along "OLD" IS WHEN - You are cautioned to slow down buy your doctor instead of the police. "OLD " IS WHEN - "Getting a little action " means you don't need to take any fibre today. "OLD" IS WHEN - Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face. "OLD" IS WHEN - "Getting lucky" means finding you car in the parking lot "OLD" IS WHEN - An "all-nighter' means not getting up to pee .
