Absolutely agree... Queenslander's only have themselves to blame, a totally failed healthcare system for one... And yes, travelling through Brisbane is like walking through a maize. I originally come from Perth and 29 years later it still suprises me that there are hardly any flat or straight roads to be had in Brisbane, except where I live now, which is on the Redcliffe Peninsula (it is mostly straight). But still, sometimes it's easier to walk somewhere than to rely on public transport...

I voted for the LNP in the last election, thought they were going to win and i sat for hours watching the results and just couldn't believe what happened but i know Springborg will try again next election, I think Queensland hasn't forgiven the Nationals after the reign of Sir Joh which ended back in the late 80's.

To sum up his reign just look up Skyhooks "Over the Border"

I did look it up!!! Thought I didn't recognise this song, No Shirl - No Skyhooks :nonono: - mind you I wasn't a huge fan of Skyhooks at the time, more of a Sherbet and (dare I say it) Bay City Rollers fan... :blush:

AHHH, living in the 70's

Yep almost at the finishing line, if you want you can open the next part after post 1000 is done and it gets closed up
i know many people think we're a copy of the Countdown club but in reality they're economy and we're business class but anyway just look at previous editions to see how one opens the Cubbyhouse.

Two of my favourite Skyhooks songs are "Meglomania" or "Women in Uniform" it's so hard to pick an absolute favourite because there are so many.
As for Sherbet well theres "Summer Love" and of course "Howzat"

I didn't have a hard time traveling through Brisbane when I was there in 2002. I didn't go out to the western part of the city much, only as far as Milton. It could be a maze further west. I use to live on the Peninsula in Margate.

[Screems with delight] :clap:

Margate is where I live, on the Parade opposite Margate Beach... How long ago did you live here? there's been alot of changes in the last 8 years.

Before I moved to this side of town I used to live in Indooroopilly, not a flat road around and when I first moved from Perth I swore I would never drive in Brisbane so I used to walk everywhere and used public transport, I changed my mind pretty quickly cos the bus drivers in these parts are kamakazi.... and when I worked in the city a few of my colleagues had issues with the buses never even turning up...

Anyways, since I'm the first one up, I have coffee brewing for ya all, and for our oversees visitors, there's booze in the fridge...

I use to live in Sorrento Street. I left in early 2003. I read there is a new bridge going up next to the Hornibrook Bridge.

Yeah, I think they're about half way accross, I try to avoid the Hornibrook as much as possible, but I have heard them at night hammering in the pylons, I would hate to live closer...

They have 'beautified' the main road at Margate, what really makes me laugh though, is they've done all this 'beautification' but when you drive into Margate on Oxley Ave you see the 'Welcome to Margate' sign then the first thing you see is the massive gun shop... Now there's a message... :huh:

That gun shop is still there! Maybe they could beautify the gun shop. :D

I used to drive across the Hornibrook bridge and along Deagon Devn every day for work.

God, I'm having dramas with my network connection, keeps dropping out. Lets see if it works this time...

Yes the gunshop is still there, Cunninghams Marine has move to Kippa-Ring though, so now there's a nice ugly looking vacant block with only the office remaining (Yeah, welcome to Margate....)

I hate going on the Gateway arterial, if I even need to go to the city I catch the train, and when I go to see my family at Indooroopilly I go the back way through Everton Park...

I moved here in 2001, lived in an old Qld'r that has be devided into 5 small flats, but I had a full view of the bay, taking in Moreton Island and the wharf. On a very still night, when the water is so flat, the lights from the island (if there were any) and the wharf would reflect right across the bay, magical... It was a sad day when I had to move... But you get that, moved to Scarborough for about a year and a half, still on the water, then that was sold, so now I live back at Margate right next door to where I originally lived when I moved here. I don't have the view like that anymore, but I still have a view, still right on the water... Love it...

AT hasn't been around for a couple of days, I hope he's OK...

I lived in a group of 4 flats. My flat was the only one on a second level as the cars where parked under my flat. I didn't have much of a view, just some roof tops of houses.

Whats wrong with the Gateway arterial, apart from paying a toll at the bridge?
I don't think I have been to Everton Park. I have been nearby suburbs like Aspley and Chermside.

We may have passed each other in the street back then.

I haven't seen AT for a few days. I hope he is ok.

There's way too many accidents and mad drives on the Arterial. The first time I drove it I almost got wiped out by a petrol tanker, that was enough for me. And when I listen to the traffic reports I'm glad I avoid it, hardly a day goes by that there's not an accident, and most times they're serious...

South Pine Road goes through Asply, keep on that and you end up at Everton Park then Enoggera then The Gap ect, ect, ect...basically the same road, not straight, but straight forward... We may have passed each other, or if you went walking along the beach I more than likey would have seen you... :o

So the cricket was a wash out, the one time the Aussies were more than likely to win... timing man ... :nonono:

AT [jumping up and down, waving hands] Where are YOU.....

I remember driving to work on the Gateway arterial at 10:30pm. I was about 6kms from the bridge and I saw a truck on it's side. The police was already in attendance and the truck was the only vehicle involved. Apart from that one accident I didn't see any others. Maybe there where less mad drivers back then?

I did walk on the Redcliffe jetty a number of times.

It taken some 3 years
over 31,000 views
a couple of thousand subjects from sport to clothing
but WE'VE FINALLY MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There were times we thought this moment will never come, the moment where post 1000 and retirement of Aussie Cubbyhouse Part Seven after the loss of so many great members to whatever taken them away no doubt something that rakes in the $$$, their losses made this climb a steeper one but we done it.

So may we all drink whether suits your tastes to the wonderful life of Aussie Cubbyhouse Part Seven and to the people who lovingly posted in it, this part like all the others was nothing short of fun.

May Aussie Cubbyhouse Part 8 be blessed and not take as long as Part Seven did to complete it's journey.
Aussie Cubbyhouse Part 8 is at http://www.trekunite...showtopic=19036
