As another aside, should you wish to explore connections between Christopher Pearson and Tony Abbott your time would not be entirely wasted.

Just as an aside, you people are terrible and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Let me just say that this is my home town and people have been taking care of my. Which seems to mean filling me full alcohol.

So yeah people are asking if I’m fine, I am, except for the people who just fed me far too much whisky. It’ll all be OK tomorrow. Probably.

@Tarale @whiteswine My pleasure. What an evening. We can never speak of this.

@DrRhysPockett That’s interesting, because ABS docs refer to SLK581 for their data. We need to take.

@reillystyley Oh. I didn’t see the joke. Some of us grew out of that one some time last century.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to reillystyley

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah you would have taken the highway A13 low over the river. The old road Patapinda Rd and Old Noarlunga, are worth a look.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@reillystyley The Patawalonga, that lake, is north of Glenelg, which starts on the far right of the photo. Let me find one that shows that.
