For all those Demonlanders who haven't posted on the T S thread, please feel free to post on this one, as long as you don't mention anything about you know who. If you have posted on the TS thread, please ban yourself from this one. If you can't think of anything to say, just say hello, as I am sure some of us would even be happy to read greetings rather than TS speculation for the next 2 months

Great initiative Redleg! I read the 'you know who' thread, but conscientiously avoid posting because I know full well that I wouldn't be able to match most of the BS that goes on over there.

And in selection news - Melbourne have cut a swathe through last weekend's team which was pumped by the Bulldogs at Etihad. The Dees have made wholesale changes for this weekend's traditional bye.

G'day Redleg, going Sunday??

Scoop Junior wants to and if Mrs. Redleg has no objections I will be there. You can tell who runs my home. Will probably bring KC from Casey if I come and then also WJ will most likely tag along.

I took the view that as I actually know nothing about what is going on with the situation, I wouldn't be able to add anything meaningful.

I had to take out my internal stairs to give me more living space upstairs and I'm using the stairs as my downstairs bar. See if you can find an 'L' shaped already removed timber staircase and chuck it on a base of brinks and you've got yourself an instant bar! I'm having a crack at a pizza oven now. In Queensland we can eat outside during winter.
