    Question how the hell can you get lost in CT? You have that big fat chunk of rock you can use to navigate.

    I was not blessed with a compass.

    I went to CT with my hubby for the first 46664 concert there and he got totally trashed on the free drinks in the VIP tent and I had to drive back to my brother-in-laws place which was way on the other side of the city in some forsaken suburb... Now to reiterate I was NOT blessed with a natural compass but just following that chunk of rock and the others that lie next to it, I managed to get us back home!

    My point is, how the hell can you get lost in CT?

    nope - I would NOT recommend it. I have it on my car, 3 hits with a spark plug and the window came out in one piece. my sister also have it on her car, and it didn't help either when she got smashed & grabbed a few months ago

    Best is not have anything that is valuable where they can see it, handbag etc always in the boot and get a handsfree kit so that your phone is out of view.

    That big flipping fat chunk of rock is always in the way!! I HATE CT purely because everywhere I want to go, I need to navigate through CT traffic around that rock!

    My 3yr old daughter loves my tanks and is always keen to feed them. I only let her feed the algae pellets as she is heavy handed with the flakes. She will often tell me that all my fish are all dying when there is nothing wrong with them. I think she is a big tease like me :laughing7:.

    This made me laugh and think of something my wife did a little while back. She went shopping and had our daughter with her. On the way out the shop another lady started chatting to my daughter and in turn my wife. As they were walking across the parking lot my wife noticed that the person that had parked next to her had parked skew and was close to her car. She turned to the lady next to her and proceeded to rant about why can't people park straight (this is her pet hate). When my wife stopped ranting the lady walking with her apologised meekly and said it was her car...Doh! :violent1: :laughing7:

    I live in The Reeds and I personally HATE Samrand Road. Been pushed of the road a few times and almost smashed in by a truck skipping the robot. A few months ago my parents had an accident on the offramp.

    I rather drive the extra few kms and take Old JHB. Much safer.

    The 30th.

    On the upside, I have a nice nest-egg saved up for a new tank. As it happens one of the largest planted aquarium equipment distributors is about an hour's drive from where I will be: http://www.aquariumplants.com/

    @ all you guys missing your big chunk of rock. I do understand it is beautiful...

    To add I detest Ca drivers in GP. You guys ALWAYS seem to blooming lost without your Rock to navigate with and drive slower than snails, then suddently your navigation kicks in and you change lanes without checking properly and then you wonder why you get the yelled at...

    Tee-hee just teasing guys!
