Londonbus1: Actually, I've been waiting all day for the Auction chatter. I don't know zilch up to now except that I managed to tag onto the last 2 auctions !! Sept 28, 2014 18:44:40 GMT
firstfrog2013: Bus most notable of the auction was Ryan and Rod fighting with brooms. Believe Ryan got in better shots as at times Rod was bidding against himself. Sept 28, 2014 19:11:23 GMT
Admin: I just putting up the results LB1 Sept 28, 2014 19:26:44 GMT
rod222: I sniped myself. x_x Sept 29, 2014 4:05:14 GMT
Ryan: Face full of Tim-Tams, fingers covered with goo ... ha ha Sept 29, 2014 4:30:08 GMT
Londonbus1: Sounds like it was fun. Thanks Frog,Ryan and Rod for giving me my morning laugh...to go with the coffee ! Thanks again Admin for the results and hard work. Sept 29, 2014 5:44:15 GMT
tomiseksj: Given the enjoyment I receive from the banter, I'd like to see live auctions on a monthly basis. Will need to grow the membership base to do so (unless one of you is inclined to liquidate your collection ;)). Sept 29, 2014 13:31:58 GMT
rod222: Our Forum is fabulous, but will always be restricted, by the difficulty by many to organise, and to retain off site hosting images, we have to live with that. Sept 29, 2014 17:04:03 GMT
Admin: The live auction does give the feeling we are all in the same room, When I first saw the shoutbox live auction was the first thing that popped at me. Its a lot of fun Sept 29, 2014 17:49:47 GMT
Admin: Picking a time is and will always be a problem, Rod suggested a 6pm New York/ 6am Perth time. With the option of placing a proxy bid at least bidders can place a bid and not be present at the auction Sept 29, 2014 17:54:09 GMT
tomiseksj: For some of our more forgetful members, reminder phone calls might also be in order. ;) Sept 29, 2014 18:07:06 GMT
Admin: Just getting all the items from the auction sorted out, I will do the superman and bluenose giveaway draw later today. Sept 29, 2014 21:09:56 GMT
firstfrog2013: You're going to do the superman?? Is that the latest dance craze?? Speaking superman my favorite you tube video is the kinks" Wanna fly like superman"Ray Davies shines bright go check it out. Sept 29, 2014 23:06:11 GMT

tomiseksj: I don't think Latvia joined the Euro Zone in 1914. :-/ Does someone want to write the AP editor and rub it in before her retirement at year's end? Applications are being accepted for the job. Any takers? Oct 1, 2014 0:57:21 GMT
Admin: Steve you should send your resume :) Oct 1, 2014 6:32:32 GMT
