  • @trevorlong Hey Trevor. Can I say a big thank you to you and SBS for bringing @talkSPORT's Premier League coverage to Aussie radio. in reply to trevorlong #
  • Michael Savage is off the air after winning a legal battle to get out of a restrictive contract. 400 stations affected. #
  • I wonder what TRN and radio stations will fill Michael Savage's timeslot with? I'm hoping @marklevinshow gains stations. #
  • Can't wait for the AFL Grand Final to start. Can't wait for Rex Hunt & Sandy Roberts to call it on AFL Live @talkthetolldown. Go Hawks! #
  • @morrison954 qwertyuiop mnbvcxz!?,. in reply to morrison954 #
  • The only thing I hate about grand finals is the music at half time. Thank goodness Peter Donegan is talking on AFL Live @talkthetolldown #
  • โ€œ@talkthetolldown: 'They've got to take risks and they're doing it'-Rex Huntโ€ Yep, and now the Hawks lead by four points late in the 3rd. #
  • @writerwood If it's still acting up, try they're taking AFL Live and left their stream on. in reply to writerwood #
  • Wowee! Big crowd. RT @theheraldsun: The official attendance at today's #AFLGF is 99,683 #
  • @writerwood Pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to writerwood #
  • Swans by 10. Hawks' coach Alistair Clarkson looks like he's going to cry. Seconds left. #
  • Sydney are 2012 AFL premiers. 14.7.(91) over Hawthorn 11.15.(81). Congratulations Sydney. Disappointing end for Hawthorn. #
  • @talkthetolldown Thanks for a great call of the grand final, and great coverage all year. Hope Rex catches lots of fish in the off-season ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @Matt_Info Hi Matt, in the article I believe "five minute delay" should read "five second delay". in reply to Matt_Info #
  • RT @Matt_Info: Car Jacking suspect commits suicide Live on Fox News with Shepard Smith (video) 9-28-2012 #
  • 757,000 people have watched the unedited video of @FoxNews showing the suicide. Given the interest, one wonders if the error was that bad. #
  • In the same situation, in that timeslot, I would have opted to cut away, but in a later timeslot, I might have let it run. #
  • As someone who works in live television, I do accept @foxnews "human error" explanation. Perhaps in future, replace 5 sec delay with 15 sec. #

Happy First Birthday Pebbles

Today is Pebbles’ first birthday. It is really quite hard to believe that almost a whole year has gone by since Pebbles came to stay. She was six weeks old when she arrived and made herself at home, and found that Nattie was very keen to make it known that the new dog would not be of a higher rank than her.

Since Pebbles’ arrival, Nattie has grown to like Pebbles quite a lot, although probably not quite as much as Pebbles likes Nattie. To say Pebbles is fond of Nattie would be a serious understatement. Nattie also seems to be happier and more active since Pebbles arrived and quite gladly joins in on ball games.

I filmed this last night as Pebbles wanted to play ball on the stairs and Nattie joined me at the bottom of the stairs where she tried to catch the balls as they came back to me. Nattie doesn’t like to run up and down the stairs like a crazy dog these days, but when I invited her up the stairs, she was very quick to find a loose ball to take back to her chair and chew on. My apologies for the video being a little bit out of focus.

A very happy first birthday to Pebbles! And a thank you to 2UE’s John Kerr who wished Pebbles a happy birthday on the radio at about 2:30 this morning.
