It’s certainly cooling down and I dread the winter months at work

Dogwatch in a tin shed standing on a concrete floor is not good for your health.

Hope yr well Fui.

Yeah that can’t be good Peej. Sending some Ugg work boots your way.

All good here mate. Stayed afloat during the rain. Now waiting for the unprecedented snow storm Sydney’s bound to get after recent weather events

Yeah generally I prefer the cold. Anything is better than the crazy heat we had last year.

I need to resurrect the Did You Know thread. I’ve been posting fun facts at work every day since December, I’ve been letting my GH brethren down.

I love cold mornings on early starts at work, it's a different vibe for the early starters.

But for a while now I've wanted to live up the coast, not sure fire pits and red wine are the healthiest winter lifestyle

What an absolutely ridiculous place, I remember being cold there in February a few years back.

Meanwhile in Central Queensland you can cruise through winter in shorts and a t-shirt and maybe need a jumper for a week in total.

I’m just wondering if this ozjersey site is for real.

Selling all clubs 2021 NRL jerseys including Raiders home away and heritage and 1989 Woodgers for $60.

Is this legit ?

Great Peej,

Dawn service at the nock was quite disappointing, going to try for the Anzac walk one in newy next year.
Be great if the raiders had a home game around Anzac weekend and do the national war memorial dawn service on top of a game

The service at Toronto was invitation only. I didn’t go. Stood in my driveway from 5-6 am. Being a Sub branch member gets me a seat at the RSL later. I’ll go and have a beer with the vets.

Happy Anzac Day all..

They limit ANZAC marches to 5000 in Sydney, but other marches are allowed up to 30000.

They keep yelling "SUB SAVERS" in high pitched singing tone. They repeat it twice per ad, and it has been repeated 57 times during NRL 360. No, 58.

I have to say I’m so glad I don’t see any ads anymore. I even pay YouTube to not have the privilege.

Literally the only ads I see is halftime of the raiders game every week on Kayo, and I usually get up, have a slash, grab another beer and try and calm down a bit during that interval anyway.
