The Gold Coast is the crucible for a second AFL Interstate placement in Qld. The Bears opened their account at Carrara, many moons past with Warwick Capper, a supporting cast and a lot of hoopla. Johnny Gastev and some Westerners left Perth to enjoy the Beaches, Lifestyle and the challenge of helping to establish a new Franchise in a less than Aust. Football code established State with however, many "Mexicans" who had moved North for the same "Lifestyle" reasons. The rest is History, after "absorbing" the Lions from Melbourne, When the Footascray Puppies had their fill, the ex Bears, now Lions moved to Brisvegas and after a lot of spin and subsidy, pulled a 3peat which saw the initial indignity of West Coast and Adelaide "stealing" the Holy Grail Interstate, fade into inconsequence and howls of charges about undue support to the detriment of Vic Clubs in general. A unique Squeal to be sure!

So speaking of Eggs, breaking to make an omelette, or Sunny Side up, is it best Free Range or Battery style. The way this establishment has gone, it is more Battery styled with the "Evereadys" being clipped off the other Clubs belts.
It remains to see if the groundbreakers like Gastev in the early years who stayed over to assist with the Game's development pays dividends in home grown talent, in the meantime, they have had and will enjoy an unprecedented advantage, as will GWS.
Will it be Armagedon for the rest...not likely, Market Share willing.

I like my eggs off the farm, get about 20 a day. Have got two clutches of chicks atm and two hens sitting on about 30 eggs.

Guinea Fowl eggs are ok too, get 15 bucks a bird for the ones with a coupla months on their side ... makes for a good little pocket money spinner for the missus and tin lids.

On topic now ..

I reckon the GC will thrive and prosper. Young men would like the lifestyle and climate up there so I reckon it won't be hard to keep 'em on the list & happy.

Foxes, crows and bloody lizards, if we're not onto 'em they eat more than their fair share of chicks and eggs.

The neighbours get eggs from us and for that we get neighbourly love .... great friendship 'round here.

Have found that a mongrel breed like bantam cross are the best to keep & make for great mums ... even hatch out the Guinea Fowl. They also scratch around and do their thing but not like those big black hen or Isa Browns who DESTROY the gardens.

Permaculture needs chooks and worms for the whole shebang to work ... hope you get your block one day Ratuss & have fun as we do.

On topic - think I may have miss3 ready to start cheering for the Goldie Suns.

$38 dollar winner today and backed the last four winners to boot .... don't worry 'bout mountains or some flash resort/training facility in Vic, got three galloping tracks, two lakes, a man made horse swimming trench and the best fresh race horse tukka around. 

Have been on the grog for a few hours (so excuse the exuberance) and have just cracked a bottle of Chivas ... won't tell how much I won today but am looking for an XB four door GT if'n anyone's got a gooden on the market, oh and my flying lessons will start in the new year.

Go the KID !!!!

Here he is at home last month

Just watched the race on replay for the sixth time and he'll sh!t in again next start.

I'll see if I can get an across the line pic, He came from 13th on the turn in a 1200m race in a 15 horse field down the outside to snatch the race, payin' 38 bucks ! Has won a a few races when drawn out wide .. our horses like it tough.

Back to the Chivas.

LOL, like I said before Elliot Ratuss, anytime I feel downtrodden, I just need to read one of your monologues.

I know we love them, but...LOL, they certainly have a talent for overlooking the obvious. I suppose why should they sweat the small stuff, is only a car after all!
Then, they aren't booching, they're negotiating the subtleties of Feminity, mysteries of which we can't expect to understand, wrong hormone blend for such comprehension. There are ancilliary benefits to that though. Like not having to bear Children, just the bills!

Nice Ponies GT. Be nice to know the Kids Stage name! ;)
What are the Livery Colours? Red & White!?
