Last Satur­day, Week­end fea­tured for­mer NRL pho­tog­ra­pher Col Whe­lan’s ul­ti­mate pub crawl when he went bush on a mis­sion to doc­u­ment some of the most iso­lated and beau­ti­ful pubs in the coun­try. In the on­line com­ments, rober­ty­bob of Ca­sua­r­ina wrote there were many coun­try pubs let­ting campers park for free “as long as you drop into the pub for a great home-cooked meal at rea­son­able prices”.

“And of course the real beauty of these places is that you can have a few beers and walk back to your camp,” the com­menter wrote on­line.

Also in last Satur­day’s mag­a­zine, our Mum’s the Word colum­nist Sue Clo­hesy pon­dered whether the birth­day plan for one of her chil­dren made her a hero or vil­lain.

On­line com­menter just­janm, of Her­vey Bay, had this to say: “Won­der­ful lat­eral think­ing. Well done, mum!”

And in Pol­lie Tick­led, colum­nist Michael Burlace lamented the death of many bank ser­vices.

On­line com­menter Beepee, of Grafton, had this to say: “I don't know how many peo­ple are up­set as to what is hap­pen­ing to our bank­ing sys­tem, but I cer­tainly am,” they wrote.

“The wages of the CEOs is ob­scene and if/when the cap­i­tal­ist sys­tem col­lapses around them, they can take the blame for killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.

“I think banks should em­ploy old peo­ple to see how peo­ple in the real world ac­tu­ally func­tion, not only in the bank­ing sys­tem, but tech­nol­ogy in gen­eral.

“Ever been in a group of old peo­ple try­ing to use their smart­phones? It is hi­lar­i­ous (if there hap­pens to be no life threat­en­ing event) but even mak­ing a phone call is a ma­jor task, caus­ing laugh­ter, frus­tra­tion, swear­ing and phones be­ing thrown in the bin.“
