    Colin wasnt on long himself

    I did get on, didnt get to say much (I sent Fab a copy of what i planned to say if i had free rein that is), and didnt get to speak with or interact with Colin

    But the biggest dissapointment was i was going to sign off with "im just someone who doesnt want to be penalised because i dont want to smoke, and enjoy the odd pineapple"

    Well done for having a go. I missed it entirely because I was cooking Mrs Fab a late dinner. They don't seem to podcast every episode unfortunately.


    The trick with these flash phone ins it to make a statement that makes them want to ask questions. Like "Public Health in Australia is responsible for eighteen thousands deaths per year". That can go two ways - they'll either shut you down, or ask what the hell you're talking about and actually be interested in the answers.

    Colin has to be pretty restrained in what he says. I know it really irks him. We don't have to be, so much, but it depends on who's running the show.

    Mainly I think, it was important to get a few positive people on with Colin. A shame you didn't get to interact with him - I never know what format these shows are going to take. Sometimes they even pre-record the main guest but I got the impression he was supposed to be live tonight.

    There's probably going to be plenty of opportunity this year to get ourselves heard - it's shaping up to be a hot topic, hopefully.

    Its weird being on the opposite end, because ive done the other side, we didnt do a lot of call ins, but ive never called in (mainly as i havent listened to radio (except when ive been on it) in 30 years)....never get used to the delay

    So yeah, i wasnt prepared to be the caller, i thought id have free rein (a dangerous thing some might say), but noooo...

    I do not care to be the caller so much, i cant work within the time constraints

    I need to build towards my climax....

    Wise words...

    “The development of a framework to govern the legal sale of eCigarettes is urgently required to bring Australia in line with the rest of the world. It is time for the Government to show strong leadership on this issue or accept the blame for putting the health and lives of Australians at greater risk ”

    Has anyone been to a Vape Force One event while they've been doing their roadtrip? They're here on the Goldie next week (Monday) & I was gonna pop down & have a squizz.

    NOTE: My location is Surfers Paradise, QLD.

    I'd add it to my profile, but Gmail keeps eating my password reset emails, so I can't login via PC, however I'm logged in via the phone app... so this will have to suffice for now!
