Darn! I left one minute too early... Couldn't wait longer, though.
Nice tag, I think I could find something tomorrow.

Mind you, there are bits of ship scattered all along the foreshore at Willy:



No, wait, that's a bit of a dry dock, not a ship.



I actually counted 7 (seven) ship's anchors in about half a mile. Most have one fluke bent over like the one shown, for use as permanent moorings rather than anchors. The upper fluke would otherwise be a serious hazard to ships drifting over it in the shallow water. Here's someone else's photo of the plaque attached to another one:



Don't ask me how they bent them!

On the assumption that that works, here's another photo I took:



Now this was going to be one of my options for the old tag (bits of boat all over), but my camera battery died at this point, so I need to get a new tag out of it.

The new tag is a restaurant with a (non culinary) theme.
(eg: not merely an Italian restaurant or a noodle restaurant, but a dracula restaurant or a star trek restaurant)

BTW, tomorrow is the first day of winter here...

If only I had made the new tag "a boat that has sunk or run aground"!

And its summer there.

I've just driven home at 10pm through the first winter mist we've had this year. The car heater was going flat out. On the plus side, it's supposed to be sunny and 19C (66F) tomorrow and Thursday, which is about as good as it gets between now and October. I think I might go for a sail (went for a ride today remember).

You see, that is the problem with you guys. You don't even no what winter means!
19C is more than we had most days until now. OK, we had a few days with something like 25C, but on average it hasn't been more than 20 I would guess. It will get warmer in July/August for sure, though.
But what are the lowest temperatures you will get in a normal winter? Did you ever ride at -20C?
I just wanna say that 19C is pretty "summerish" for what I think.

Cheers, mates!

Well, the very first mention of the term can be found here. (Post #965, note the different spelling: Bruce'd )
The whole story actually developed from page 48 or so, as linked above by advNZer?.

Even though thiswould have also been a nice explanation...

I hope this works. It's Quaker Steak and Lube here in Pittsburgh.

Be advised, I don't have any pictures of the inside of the one here in Pittsburgh but it looks pretty much the same as the one in this LINK - just different cars and motorcycles. By the way, they have some of the best wings I have ever eaten.

If it does work then let me know.

That is suitably bizarre and not at all what I expected! Tag on!
