G'day all, Anyone out there with the recipe for Pussers curried bangers? I'm entertaining a couple of old salts this weekend and think it would be a good way to start our 'reflections' cheers

Trev, Don't forget the Pisstrainers. Offal is cheaper than bangers these days.

Fred Goddard Send E-mail Tuesday, 5 August 2014 12:08
Devilled Kidneys was the go in the good old days. Coming from Newcastle in 63 I saw Scallops on the Menu. Never knew they were a Crustacean thought I was getting potato scallops.

Fred... pisstrainers? great... that's breaky fixed. It was going to be 'train-smash' thanks.

Afternoon tea. A tin of Herrings In.
Do a nice Shepherds Pie for standby, always good for latecomers etc. Go to Dan Murphys and see if they have any of the old beers in the tins we used to get issued with. Have FUN

Bugger the beers Fred, Trev makes a fine red - no hangover!! smile

Think that here we are coming up to round 19 of the AFL and Doug Marsh has not posted comments about how hard his Dockers are done by, even after their loss to St Kilda, that he has now changed his allegiance to a team with different colours as the purple haze became too much for him.

Doug Send E-mail Thursday, 31 July 2014 09:50
Scoops maaate. We're just playing with their tiny Eastern States minds, you can get better odds now than when we were no.2 You'd think their tiny Eastern States teams would do better after all the money honest hard-working Sandgropers put into the AFL through the equalisation scheme. Lazy Victorians still think its the vfl, we prop up their economy through the GST and prop up their teams with the magnificient Dockers and slightly less magnificient Eagles

Do we alert Shorty to the fact he can tx from his fone, or do we let sleeping dogs lie lol

Hi Keghead
Thanks for the kind words from Ruth and yourself.Didn't realise there was so much to do and how long it takes. Just coming down to earth now with the great support of our boys and grandchildren. Alan and dot and dolly Gary were comforting shoulders to lean on.
Hope your health is improving and treatment is working.

I've just read on the RANCBA website about Doug MANNERS passing away. Doug joined the Parramatta in 76 before out trip up top. He was a great man and have many fond memories of him. I recall Doug stopping my and Steve "Nobby" Norris stepping ashore in Fremantle due to something we did in the Comcen. Funny times. The last time I spoke with Doug was at the RANCBA Reunion in Melbourne. Very sad news indeed. Another good bloke gone. RIP Doug, smooth seas and condolences to his family.

Thank you to the RANCBA and to the communicators who attended Dougs service on 8 may I would like to thank you all for your kind words to myself and my family. We are definitely a breed unlike all others when it comes to expressing our regards for our own. Thank you once again.
Sylvia manners and sons.

Sylvia, I don't know where to start in saying how very sorry I/we were to hear about Doug. I have been hospitalised for the last few weeks with some 'life threatening' nasties and have not had any P/C contact, so was not aware of the sad news. Last time I spoke to Doug, we were discussing having a beer at our next Reunion!! God I'll miss him, and please accept our apologies and condolences for the loss. RIP. Keghead/Ruth

Good day to you all.
Just to let you know I'm still here. I start a session of radium this afternoon hoping to reduce a rather large tumour. I'm managing to get around although a little weak. Great support from family and friends.
