Not much happening it would seem. I think the excitement of the late night thread split has left us all emotionally exhausted.

Oh sh*t. Didn't realise that we so close to the split last night. Snatched from under my nose from the other side of the world.

The Dew Drop Inn Virtual Rugby Pub thread had a very slow demise. We were churning through threads in 1-2 weeks... then it just went dead after some people left.

I met a few of them when they came over here for the 2013 Lions tour.

Lydneyian stayed here for a few days (now remarried and living in Melbourne)
I spoke to The Hound of Harrow (who was very sick in his hotel room... missed the match... and has since died) So sad.
Gibson (crazy coke snorting Irish poster living in Amsterdam - a.k.a. Cookie)
Rugby Dreamer (actually picked her up from the airport; and took her to Bondi Beach and over the Harbour bridge at night) and
Red Stag... another serious Irish rugby poster from Limerick.

Yeah, all the good ones are gone just about. I don't enjoy the rugby section much.
Not that I can really add to any of the discussion when the team is travelling so poorly.

Can't believe they had 2 draws with SA. The one here was fair enough... but to do it again last weekend was a bit of a surprise.
I thought the Boks would bounce back. Then again, NZ had just beaten them 57-0 the week before.

Not good for the sport to see those sort of scorelines.

Had a big crush on Jo... those buck teeth and polar neck jumpers were so appealing to me at the time.
Wasn't as keen on Chrissy... she was too smart & clever to make a favourable impression on a young kid like me.

I bet Amazon and McDonalds must be in there somewhere. Maybe just one of them?

Amazon correct for question 2
McDonalds incorrect for question 3 - it has been overtaken in the last few years.

Yes, we were Jules. Very clever. Also liked the sitcom question, which I bet fits into round 4 as well.

Just took out 2 bins. I have a red, a green and a yellow.

2 points for guessing which 2 colours went out tonight.

I'll assume red is for general waste (as you put that first), green for some recycling e.g. plastic and yellow is for other recycling e.g. paper.
Obviously they don't all go out together, so I'll assume the red is weekly and the recycling alternate weeks.
Most likely you wouldn't put red followed by green as you'd want to split up the 2 that went out.
So I'll say red and yellow.

Yes exactly. Red (general) always goes out.

I was hoping it would be yellow (plastic containers, glass & cardboard) but it was in fact green (garden waste) this week. Only had some minor garden off cuts in there with some fruit that keeps falling from my neighbours tree... onto my pebbles.

My Mum has a different system - blue for glass & plastic, yellow for paper only, then the same green and red... but her green one is huge because there are more (and larger) trees up north compared to here.

Would you believe they have rubbish bin inspectors here. I caught one guy in a special uniform with badge peering into my bins one morning.
I felt like doing the Basil Fawlty thing: "Can I help you? Would you like a sandwich or something... are you hungry?"

He reckoned I had mixed "soft plastic" with "hard plastic". A big no no apparently. He had just peeled off a (plastic) sticker which had "Good Recycling Citizen" and stuck some on my neighbour's bins.... but I didn't get one! I felt like a proper rubbish criminal.

I've heard tales of that here. Recycling not taken because they looked inside and saw something that would 'contaminate' it.

Yes, I had about 20 empty soft bags of organic mulch squashed in there.

I'm surprised we haven't had water inspectors on the rounds. So dry here. Only 38mm since June; not a drop in September. I've forgotten what rain looks like. Back about 20 years ago we had severe water restrictions. If you were caught (or reported) decent fines applied.

Our dams are down from 91% to 86%. I thought we'd lose lots more from evaporation and me hosing the lawns. 2 billion litres used 2 weekends ago!

The traffic light system of bins was enough to excuse me from bin duty this summer out there, the mistakes I might make were too catastrophic to imagine under the rule of harsh collections.
