Rumors of an air raid

Referring to Correspondents attaching ribbons or balloons to car antennas to find cars in parking lots (C8), Kenthurst’s Tim Crawshaw says: “They, like rego stickers, are a thing of the past. I own a couple of classic cars and one day the grandkids looked in the garage and the five year old said, “What’s that little pipe thing sticking out of the car?” The 12-year-old told him it was the radio antenna. It looks like the new generation will soon be unaware they exist!”

Rocky River’s Catherine Redden says: “I don’t need balloons to find my car. After I volunteered with the RFS, I put one of their bright yellow promotional stickers on the back window of my car. Now I can easily find it in a sea of ​​white and silver vehicles.”

“It’s one thing not being able to find your car, but it’s another when you pick up the wrong luggage at Sydney Airport, as happened to me recently,” said Greenwich-based Ian Fenwicke. “As a wheelchair user, it took some time to reach the carousel. I picked up a bag identical to mine but without checking the tag number. Halfway home in the cab my phone rang to say I picked up the wrong bag. My courteous driver took over the speaker and arranged where the bags could be exchanged. It was all taken care of and worth every small fraction of the extra cost.”

Lance Dover of Pretty Beach notes, “The name of the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder is…Dr. banks It really holds a lot of water!”

On the invention front, Mosman’s Jack Dikian says, “Although a cordless garden hose (C8) isn’t a bad idea, I think someone should invent a cordless extension cord. It could just be the answer to ever-increasing electricity prices.”

“I can help Col Burns with the fast-forward request for Test cricket,” claims Evans Head’s Ken Hudson. “Mute the TV and turn on the ABC live broadcast. The ABC is about 20 seconds in front of the TV so you can read a book with the ABC sound on and if something happens on the radio you can look up and watch it on the TV. Simply.”

In one invention, John Christie gets the sheets with Glyn Bradford: “You almost have to respect the evil genius of the paper towel makers. A new single sheet is too small, a double sheet is too big. But the roll will surely be used up sooner!”

“There used to be an old bread factory slogan (C8) painted on the wall outside Central Station,” says Denhams Beach’s Joshua Steele: “’What You Eat Today, Walks and Talks Tomorrow’. It conjures up strange images in my mind.”
