Some tosser in the Sydney area that covers Parramatta Road has suggested this vehicle as a solution to Parramatta Road traffic problems. It is described as a track less tram. For mine, if it looks like a bus, sounds like a bus and it quacks like a bus, it must be a bus.
Winnie, it rather depends on which angle you come at it from. Australian Aborigines looked after their land for thousands of years. We whities seem to bent on destroying it. Winnie, pour your yourself another drink to reach clarity of thought.
I have posted this photo of the Pontcysyllte-Aqueduct in Wales before.
It has again become relevant, because after our campervan holiday, I became slightly obsessed with watching RV camping videos, especially these two guys known as RV Geeks. Recreational Vehicles, if you didn't know. Their visit to Australia was great.

Yesterday's post was of course an April Fool's joke. While I am sorry if you took it seriously.......no I am not. That is the whole point of an April Fool's joke. I've written some pretty convincing April Fool's posts in the past, but I haven't done one for a few years. I came across some really good ones this year, such as Ikea placing a newspaper ad stating that there is an amnesty for the return of their wooden pencils. Guilty as charged, Your Honour. We have one. Actually, they don't mind you keeping one or two pencils, as the ad points out, but there are hoarders of Ikea pencils. No questions asked. Return the pencils.
The Sydney tram bus, as seen above, was I expect the inspiration for the Public Transport Users Association April Fool's joke, with the PTUA issuing a media release.
When I arrived home from work, the harvesting of spaghetti from trees was being repeated on tv. It was one of the best April Fool's jokes ever.
Crikey had a pretty good one. I read through it all and only realised towards the end that it was April 1.
Lord Mayor Doyle has not instigated a plan to help the homeless by leaving sandwiches at bus and tram stops, but his own April Fool jokes are usually pretty good. This year, he plans to extend daylight saving within the Central Business District, plus Docklands, for an extra month, principally to increase business for restaurants and cafes.
I find it quite stressful to read the electric newspapers on April Fools Day. Is this article serious, or not? Last year when discussing April Fool's Jokes with a friend he said to me he thought up two April Fool's Jokes, one that Britain would leave the EU. I told him it was not believable. But really I liked his second one, that Donald Trump would be elected president of the US. I had a good laugh when he told me that one.
