Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

I have an OA Visa and am leaving for a visit to the UK on the 10 of April.

No, the race on sunday will start at 12:00 Thai time.
Is Melbourne on daylight (summer) time? If not they are GMT + 10 hrs, and here GMT + 7 hrs. :?
The race starts at 1600 hrs Melbourne time.

Re: All car passengers now required to buckle up

And why do they not start with the thousands of school "buses" that take the next generation to and from school? Teach the whole generation to use seat belts and it will become automatic for the rest of their lives. None of this BS about how old the vehicle is, or how poor the driver / owner is. The...
