    OK, I'm working on that. Should have a finished version in 2 - 3 weeks.

    Hey @trev333 , just bought a 4 pack of Root Beer from Aldi. I know you like sarsparella. This Aldi root beer has a nice licorice flavour.

    Does it say on the bottle which roots they make it from?

    I remember as a kid poking around the industrial area on weekends finding some stubbies of Root beer and Horehound beer along with Ginger beer all from Bundaberg, round the back of a trucking place.....

    we figured out it must be ok to drink as it was in a bottle with a label the same as the bundy ginger beer bottles..

    the name Root beer made us chuckle,, and what the hell were Horehounds?...

    both tasted earthy, the root beer being a bit sweeter... neither tasted like sars/licorice....

    It's actually made by Saxby & Coleman over in Taree. According to the label the ingredients are:

    • Carbonated water
    • Sugar
    • Food acid (330)
    • Flavours
    • Preservative (211)
    • Caramel colour (150)
    So I guess no root as such.

    I used to love Horehound as a kid. No one seems to make it anymore.

    Shelleys Snowcap Champagne was alright when I was young.

    Too much sugar and other assorted chemicals in all that stuff these days.

    Gun question
    We're all getting on and my old man has a quiver of rifles from his youth that I would rather he deal with (ie ..Sell or give up in the amnesty ATM ) than I inherit.
    He's got a licence and the guns are all registered even though he's not fired one in fifty years. I have no idea how the used legit gun market works here ...experience or thoughts appreciated

    I have no idea either but I'd research the value of each one on the net and then have a chat to the local gun shop

    Would it be worth talking to the police to see if there are any regulations regarding the sale of firearms. I'm imagining that with them being registered there should be a paper trail that goes along with the sale.

    Just thinking out aloud more than anything. I have no experience with guns.

    There most certainly is if you are not operating on the dark side, my two boys are both licenced gun owners and there are specific bits of paper to acquire and dispose of firearms.

    Acquisition requires club membership etc for city dwellers and I imagine that owning a property and having a gun for pest control would possibly negate the club requirement.

    There are also specific storage requirements and they have been audited a couple of times over the last 5 years or so.

    Count Friend of Leo's

    Regulations vary a bit from state to state. In NSW selling a registered firearm has to be done with the assistance of a dealer or a club armourer who witnesses that the firearm is registered and carries the serial numbers and description that is on the registration papers. The purchaser has to have a permit to Aquire issued by the Firearms Registry. Alternatively you can sell to a dealer. Contact the Firearms Registry in your state to get the actual procedure and requirements. Your local police will only refer you to them anyway. You could also talk to your local firearms dealer or shooting club.
