My neighbor mows the front , but I wont give him a key to get into the back yard
Yep, my yard is mess , but at least I don't have an asbestos shed in it anymore
and it's still not as bad as Goggles yard
G

Get lost, it's never been as bad as yours.... at least mine is level, and I mow the lawn every week...I'm almost civilised. I spent Sunday mulching and doing a general tidy up , my garden kicks your garden's arse......trust me, then I had a bonfire and sat out there drinking beer, it was bloody maglorious. :cheers:

Speaking of civilised, the condition you placed on returning to my shed to work on the tank has just been met, ding-dong! :-D,

 you wouldn't believe how happy I am about that!!!

Now, it's been a sad week for landspeed with the loss of Bill Warner,I won't pretend to be able to say anything that could do it better than those who knew him well, he sounded by all accounts like one of the best, a smart bloke and nice with it. I don't race bikes and I am in a hurry to say I have every amount of respect and admiration for those who do, I worry about you dudes.

Floydjer sent me a message and lamented about how it was such a pity that all of the news coverage was negative.... I responded that I had a .pdf of the recent coverage we got here from Australian Geographic magazine, so here is a link to their site, be nice, it's made for the general public. Thanks to Natsumi Penberthy and Nick Cubbin. This shows landspeed as what we all love, the article also deals with our very good friend Brett de Stoop's 240mph get off.

a video:  http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/journal/video-speed-week-australia-2013.htm

aaaaaaaaaaand if you want the full article pm me with your email and I'll send it to you it even mentions your favorite possum wrangler and proprietor of the Spirit of Suhine Landspeed Lab and Idiot Wonderland......

cheers

The design I did for the Colonel's shed included landscaping turning it into an awesome level quadrangle outdoor bbq space.

We'll see if that happens...

Ok, looking at it now it is a little more curvy on one side than a quadrangle, its been a few years since I drew that...
