I like it how Belconnen Interchange farewell tour was put up on the desto roll and I would of been interested to see how that was done. A good idea to use the same font when making the farewell sign to look like the other destos which are printed on this ACTION desto roll

One of the guys made the sign up & stuck it onto one of the blank destos.
Payback is a bitch, but is fun to watch.

I believe that 'Mr Bean' made the signs as well as those delicious ANZAC Biscuits. Nerdbus put them up.

No doubt ANZAC biscuits because the tour was the day after ANZAC Day.

I believe they were actually baked on ANZAC day...as some others and myself asked why they were baked on the day after and we were told they were cooked on ANZAC day and therefore it is valid that they are called ANZAC biscuits.

Anzac Biscuts can be called Anzac biscuts on any day of the year, not just on Anzac day, and they can also be baked on any day of the year, so I dont know why you made i sound that it isnt right to cook them on any other day of the year.

I never said it's not right.

I said they aren't valid on any other day.

Discussion over.

Still haven't got together all of the photos from the tour as yet. As soon as I do, will be emailing a group shot to all those who provided email addresses to me.
