@SnarkyPlatypus @3AW693 They certainly do, to judge by the sound of the callers. Good program though.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The @3AW693 program is interspersed with adverts for retirement homes and lose weight or you’ll get diabetes you fat slob ads.

@marcuskelson @mattdasilva As I keep saying, we need more of these stories in the open. I’m happy to make mine public, to some extent.

via TweetDeck in reply to marcuskelson

Oh. I should check my Gmail address more often. I just found an email from 19 Jan inviting me to New Orleans. Oops.

@mattdasilva That’s how it goes… And thanks!

via TweetDeck in reply to mattdasilva

@mjos_crypto Well, I’m glad that @blackdoginst is with me on this one, because they’re a world leader in this stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to mjos_crypto

@mjos_crypto Yeah, and video means I can both talk and show things., Sorry to hear you’re struggling too.

@BakedBoons Well, not always, no. Sometimes it is wine time. Or whisky time.

via TweetDeck in reply to BakedBoons

It is cider time.

via TweetDeck

@DrSallyCockburn Yet now, things like @blackdoginst’s online mood assessment tools are routine. (They just gave me a new diagnosis.)

via TweetDeck in reply to DrSallyCockburn

@DrSallyCockburn Hah yes! How we ever imagined doing it all over 56k modems is still a mystery to me. Oh how naive we were…

via TweetDeck in reply to DrSallyCockburn

@AndrewBlanda Anyway, I have @blackdoginst’s plan, and a GP who’s been my medico for 20 years. He’ll keep me in line.

@AndrewBlanda I don’t think the underpants option should be dismissed so quickly…

@shiftkey But you’re too burnt out to finish it? ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to shiftkey

@shiftkey Thank you, Sir. As I say, more of these stories should be visible. And yes, I’m feeling positing about the fresh approach.

via TweetDeck in reply to shiftkey

@GailElizabethW I was actually looking at being one of their ambassadors a couple years ago, but the timing was wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to GailElizabethW

@AndrewBlanda Thanks, Andrew. @blackdoginst seems to have unlocked a door with the fresh diagnosis. Now, to run with their plan!

via TweetDeck in reply to AndrewBlanda

@GailElizabethW Thanks. I think this sort of stuff should be more visible. Monday’s really just setting management plan in motion, I think.

Some old memory has just surfaced, telling me that number is associated with some pest exterminator telemarketing or similar.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I happen to know that Jason Donovan would be unlikely to go litigious on that. Nah, it’ll be some telemarketing thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@pandymonium01 It’s pretty patchy, but then it’s half-crowdsourced.

via TweetDeck in reply to pandymonium01

They’re quite persistent.

via TweetDeck

@pandymonium01 Just kept Googling the number in various formats until something came up.

via TweetDeck in reply to pandymonium01

And now a call with no Caller ID. Yes, that’ll make all the difference.

via TweetDeck

@RedbayP You’d think my voicemail giving my name and telling them to leave a message would do the trick. Sigh.

via TweetDeck in reply to RedbayP

Ah. A reverse number looking says the number belongs to someone in Queensland at this address near Toowoomba. google.com.au/maps/place/48+…

via TweetDeck

@mjos_crypto Oh we still have them here in Australia. They were seen as a public safety thing in rural areas. Less so now.

And here are all the filming locations. imdb.com/title/tt010058…

via TweetDeck

Yes, because I remember talking to Marcus Graham, who was conscious.

via TweetDeck

So the drama being filmed on Kangaroo Island at that time would’ve been “Shadows of the Heart”, released 1990. imdb.com/title/tt010058…

via TweetDeck

So 1989. I was producer of the Triple J launch concert and live broadcast from Adelaide’s Rymill Park.

via TweetDeck

I just happened to run into a bunch of people from that production at [REDACTED], so I was sorting their VIP passes to the launch party.

via TweetDeck

I can put a date on that. The week of @triplej’s Adelaide launch, and Mr Donovan was starring in some drama being shot on Kangaroo Island.

via TweetDeck

I explained everything to the unit hairdresser, though, so in the end it all got sorted out.

via TweetDeck

I remember when I met Jason Donovan, but he wouldn’t remember because he was phenomenally whacked out of his brain on the floor.
