Turning the dial and different nice moments

Caz Willis of Bowral says: “Like Colin Taylor-Evans of Lane Cove (C8), my vision-impaired buddy used to snigger, that each time she informed somebody about her distinction, they raised their voices to make sure she heard. We questioned in the event that they turned up lights when individuals stated they had been listening to impaired.”

Colin himself has come full circle: “Listening to Column 8 on Monday, as I do, because of the devoted readers at radio 2RPH (Studying for Print Handicapped), 1224AM (Hunter 100.5FM, Illawarra 93.3FM), feeling slightly satisfied for making it onto Granny’s web page. When the presenter added ‘Colin is one in all our listeners … howdy Colin’, it felt like I used to be in a form of media suggestions loop.

Your change and receipt had been returned within the cylinder, which plopped right into a wire basket.

Taking over the Steeden, George Zivkovic of Northmead presents “the most recent nomination for Nice Moments in NRL Commentary of the Yr from the weekend: ‘Whichever staff will chew down on the mouthguard and take the sport by the scruff of the neck will win’. For sure, one staff managed to grab defeat from the jaws of victory.” By the pores and skin of their tooth?

The slab (C8) defined: “Cleaning soap has a exact chemical definition. Varied detergent-based merchandise can’t be offered as cleaning soap, therefore the wonder bars, cleaning slabs and different names for non-soap cleansers.” We thank Invoice Tango of Manly.

“If a Shut Encounters (C8) situation eventuates, I’ll be protected,” reckons Susan Bradley of Eltham (Vic). “You could recall that the spacecraft responds to the musical makes an attempt at communication with a tuba. I’ve had that little tune memorised ever since, simply in case.”
