Hi Matt,
Applied for an operator job when they commissioned that platfom. I missed out but a good mate of mine, also from the Kurnell refinery, got it, .
He now is involved with the Dampier (Not the right name exactly?) off Darwin, where another mate from the Kurnell refinery got a job about 5 or 6 years ago.

So that's 2 guys from over here and they both have red hair too, hmmm is there a thread here?

Yes Diamond I would gladly share, unfortunately I will only recieve three more allocations of 2 slabs per month before we are separated from Fosters, and become a public company of our own. Will certainly miss the free beer, as you can imagine, it doesn't last long each month, especially if you get invited to "come and watch the footy" or "lets go and find some mud" or "the wife is going out I will be home alone, come and have a couple of quiet ones and help me look after the kids".

Oh well, back to spending $30+ per week to buy liquid gold.

Will make sure I will have at least one with you one day. I used to work in Bendigo (for 12 months managing the National Hotel), working for receivers. I am sure I will join at least one crusade that you are on.Just Do It!

Cheers!
