I thought of who else I would like to be sharing it with and you, Les and Pen came immediately to mind.

Cheers
What a smashing thing to say Jack.  I would love to be sharing an Old Peculier with all of you.  Especially in your wonderful sunny climate - we're freezing our bits off over here!!
Les wanted a change of subject & I was going to raise the matter of your Deputy Prime Minister - Barnaby Joyce.  Unfortunately Les beat me to it!  It seems Mr Joyce has been having hanky panky with a member of his staff. Whoops!
Enjoyed both the dentist jokes :laugh:

It helps if you realise Barnaby always used to wear the biggest Akubra hat even indoors to emphasise his connection with the bush.

Jack, like Pen (Hobbit) and Les, I'd be delighted to drop by for an Old Peculier or three and a 'prawn from the barbie'.

I have to ask, though, why the picture of the drinks cabinet is horizontal?
Was that taken after the third bottle or before?

Red faced, I have to say before we opened the bottles.  I emailed the picture from my iPhone to my computer and stored it and then loaded it into the post using additional options.  When I saw the result, I deleted it from the post rotated the original 90 degrees and reloaded it.  Whether I forgot to save it before reloading again or there is some gremlin in the file loading function, I am not sure.  But I can't figure why it it came out on its side in the first place.  I had to go out so I didn't have time to fiddle further.

Has anybody else had problems loading pictures?

Pen, i think that this classic tourism ad from the eighties was marketed mostly in America , so you may not have seen it, i'm sure that Mike & Jack will remember the brilliant series of ads that featured Paul Hogan in his prime.

Dear Les, et al, have you seen the latest Australian Tourism advertisements, played recently at a famously popular US sporting event, obviously in an attempt to lure Americans downunder?  Shades of our past ocker culture.  Keep an keen eye open for the very brief appearance of the original Crocodile Dundee.

The long(er) version before it was edited into the short(er) version:

The short(er) version after it became a 'proper' TV advertisement:

You never disappoint Les!  I hadn't seen the ad with Paul Hogan.  Totally brilliant. Wish I would hurry up & win the lottery so I can get on that boat & visit your amazing country! The prawn on the Barbie made me laugh out loud!
Am waiting to see what you come up with next...

Thanks Val I enjoyed it very much.  Particularly Chris Hemsworth.  He's very easy on the eye!

Thanks Val, I had not seen those trailers.
Generally speaking, I don't like re - makes & even most sequels fail to live up to the original however I will reserve my decision on this one until I have seen the entire film.

As you can see from my previous post, I also have it down to perfection.

Hey Les,
There is no film.  It is just an advertisement.

Oh!, ok, guess I got sucked in big time although I do believe that the idea of a remake is still being considered or have I got that wrong as well?
