I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

No worries - It is hard to keep track of everything that's said on the forum...I just happen to have remember that subject was mentioned before. Maybe I spend too much time in front of the PC :)

It is amazing how much china and India have bought around the world China have made a bid to purchase the largest pork producer in the America

the Perilya mine here in broken hill is owned by Chinese company and some of the huge cotton farm not far from town on the news they said places like India and china cannot produce enough food to feed there own people so they either buy it or grow it some where else

huge sums of cash is being spent way beyond many people prices are being paid out for businesses and farms propertys

Another reason to steer clear of Cooper tyres.

That is a positive for the company


but I think tires are a bit like the holden and ford thing some like holden others cannot stand them others like ford or other makes

we are so lucky we are able to make these choices many other country's do not give you much of a choice in consumer goods

If Coopers biggest market is the USA then their sales may take a huge hit . Americans proudly support USA owned and locally manufactured goods!
