Hi Berona, yes I keep my renewal going to add to my tree and check my threads. I have FB too great to keep up with my school friends and family. My girl has only been with this fellow 7 months, not long at all. He is 24 and does work so that is something. I have been trying to give her lots of advice and she does listen, but father to be thinks he knows all. I will have to learn to zip it when he is around, haha.

I don't bother to read the H & A threads because of those comments. I was verbally attacked for an innocent comment, so that did it for me. I just keep scrolling and just watch the show.

Yes we three shall have to keep things moving along on here. As for Johnny, his character is so annoying, so maybe he is doing a good job. Honestly, I feel like muting the tv everytime he opens his mouth. I do like Nate the doctor, he is really something to look at ;-) and a good actor too.

Talking of modern technology, my internet is always dropping out. :-| I believe it has to do with all the cables they are laying for the NBN. Can have a few really good days and then others where it drops out multiple times. I need to start writing letters again, a lost art. :-)

Take care and I will make an effort to be on here more often, health permitting. Cheers.

Great to see you posting, Kim. I check in all the time to see if you are here, then worry that you are not well. Hope things are bearable for you. And so, you're to be a grandmother? Is this the first time for you? I understand what you say about all that good advice, but at least you did give it. You can't hold their hands. Anyway, 19 is a nice age - recognised as a woman and capable of responsibilities - not like she was 15/16 and unable to finish school. Is she serious about the fella? Your advice will still be valuable when they make plans for the future - so don't give up on her. I'm sure you will be over the moon when the little one arrives.

I don't mind Johnny Ruffo. He was pushed into acting and he has improved. I don't mind any of them really. Not fussed about Heath - but Brax is lovely. I still read the Facebook page of H&A, but then I get cranky with some of the kids who comment on it and just have to say my piece. . Then, I remember it's a public site, meaning that my comments show up on the Facebook pages of my 'friends' - so I delete my comments. I don't normally use Facebook, but opened an account so that I could exchange photos with my friends on the Aussie thread on this site (Genes). We couldn't exchange photos on here so we all opened Fbook pages - but don't use them much, only when someone is proud of their garden, or the snow is unusual and they upload photos to show us. Ah, the marvel of modern technology.

Again, lovely to hear from you. Take care and keep us posted. There only seems to be you, Marion and me left - with an occasional visit from Allan. Barbara is no longer a member. I have just renewed but haven't done any family history for ages. I just enjoy the company on this site.


MEgirl Report 10 Jul 2014 12:40

Hello still here and still watching. Feeling this cold July weather.

Still wishing some of these characters would LEAVE, esp. Johnny Ruffo. Loving Brax, but wishing he and Rikki could sort out there "differences". Heath is wonderful with his baby son, but that daughter is a real pain.

Hope you are all well. I am battling on with the health issues and just found out I'm going to be a grandmother. :-0 My daughter is only 19, dear oh dear. Seems all that good advice has gone out the window, lol. Too late now, could be a storyline from H & A. ;-)


Berona Report 4 May 2014 12:11

I had almost given up on you, Marion. Sorry I didn't see you sooner.
Yes, Heath is a Dad again. I don't remember him asking for a DNA test - and it's causing problems with Bianca because she just isn't ready to have babies around her again yet. Are you having a 'break' where you are? I believe that Cnannel 5 is having a 3-week break from now. This will put you 8 weeks behind Australia and you will see the quick trip the actors made to London on the day you start watching again (26th May). I was disappointed in it. I loved London and wanted to see how it looks these days (it's a long time since I was there) but the few scenes we saw were quick and most of them could have been filmed here at home.

Allan is having a trip to New Zealand and intended to meet up with 'Persephone' whilst there. That should be nice for him. I know how thrilled I was to meet pen-pals when I first went to UK. Oh well, I'll have to be satisfied with cyberspace. I won't be going anywhere any more.

We have had a beautiful Autumn, but this week, the temps are dropping fast to remind us that winter is on it's way. I hope you have a lovely summer.


MarionfromScotland Report 27 Apr 2014 18:05

Hi all :)
Still in the land of the living...just not been on here atall.
I hope everyone is well.

I am still keeping up with h&a.We are at the bit where Heath has a baby son and baby's Mum is ill.


Berona Report 17 Apr 2014 04:51

Hello Allan. Good to see you here again. It seems like it's only you and me at the tmoment. Kim is not well, but looks in when she is feeling up to it. Haven't heard from Marion for a while.

I have been following H & A on the Facebook fans thread. I keep going to leave it and never go back, but something draws me to see what mess someone is making of it each day. Nobody expects everyone to be perfect at typing or spelling - but really!!! What some them do to the English language is appalling! My particular beef is with those who say 'dat' for 'that' and 'youse' for 'you'. I find those most irritating. Now, I find that my sister in law in England has been able to see my comments on her Facebook page. I have them all tightened up so that my public comments can't be seen - but she can see them! Therefore, I go through and clean them up (delete them) every few days. Nothing is safe on Facebook!

Looking forward to your suggestion for a good script. In the meantime, have a good holiday in NZ. Can you not get someone to record the episodes that you will miss? If I can help to bring you up to date on your return, please ask. My best to your wife and the cats. My little four-footed friend is fine at 13 (when she's awake!).


Allan Report 15 Apr 2014 05:39

Hello all,

Just popped in after a long absence. We are also going away very soon, but not to London. We are off to new Zealand for a 21 day coach and rail tour. We leave on Thursday and arrive in Auckland on Good Friday

I hope that is more enjoyable, and lasts longer, than H & A trip appeared to be. Not that I watch it of course.

I'll work on a new script where the entire cast join GR to work out who their biological parents are :-D.

It seems everybody is related to somebody, but nobody wants to know.

I think that that is how the legal expression 'body of proof' originated.

I suspect some may have six fingers and would play a mean banjo! ;-)

I'm not sure that I am looking forward to our holiday. OH will be suffering withdrawal symptoms without her weekly fix of H & A


Berona Report 15 Apr 2014 03:46

Well, that trip wasn't worth waiting for. We didn't see enough of London and it seemed a long way to go for Ricky to change her mind about the job. It looked more like a bonus trip for the actors and crew because the 'Braxton' may have brought the ratings up, but didn't seem worth what it must have cost for all of their fares and accommodaton, etc.

Kim - how are you? I keep wondering how things are going for you and hope for improvement all the time. I know Barbra left us when she didn't renew her subscription, but I also wonder about Marion. Hope things are OK there too.


Berona Report 23 Mar 2014 21:30

Good to see you posting, Kim. Yes, I'm sure Allan could liven the scripts up a lot!

Nothing much to watch on Home and Away. The Braxton family livened it up a bit but I think everyone is getting tired of them now - and the other storylines are pathetic. Hope their trip to London is more interesting. I believe they go tomorrow.


MEgirl Report 22 Mar 2014 10:33

Oh tell me about it Berona. :-( I get so bored sometimes, especially with the school kids. John and Marilyn can be entertaining. Harvey is now in some show on Channel 2 and we know where Sid went - Big Fat Tony. I sometimes miss Dex, but definitely not April.

Yes Allan needs to turn this soapie around for sure.

I hope you've been well. This year is flying and nearly Easter, so hard to believe we have just got through Christmas. :-0


Berona Report 21 Mar 2014 21:41

So good to hear from you, Kim. I've been very concerned for you.

Lots of publicity about the trip to London. I wonder if it will be worth it all? They were only there filming for little more than a week, so I don't expect to see much.

I'm sure Allan will have some good scripts for us. Couldn't be much worse than we have been getting lately.


MEgirl Report 21 Mar 2014 11:33

Hello all I'm still here just, not doing so well. Been meaning to pop in, but my memory is terrible. Lucky I still know where I live.

Still watching the show and so happy to have my beloved Brax back. Storylines still bugging me.

Hello to our overseas ladies. I have been thinking of you all, probably spend too much time of FB as well.

A bit of UK coming up, I'm looking forward to that. Had my suspicions with the Heath situation, but I was wrong. Won't spoil it for anyone not up to speed.

Take care all and I will try to get here more often. <3 <3


Allan Report 28 Jan 2014 07:48

:-D :-D Berona

H&A started last night here in WA.

The blurb said "Who is the one doesn't survive the bomb?"

I prefer: 'Who is the only one to survive, and where does that person emigrate to?'

I may post further possible scripts ;-) :-D


Berona Report 28 Jan 2014 03:25

Hi Allan,

Yes, it is the same Barbra - I believe she shortened the name because someone else got there first with the username. I didn't know she had not renewed, so that explains why she hasn't been posting - obviously!

Goodness me. That only leaves Marion in Scotland and Kim (MeGirl) who has been ill, although it was great to see her post greetings to us at Christmas - and me! Of course, you are welcome to join us but I seem to remember you doing that once before, when you told us what terrible things were going to happen to the characters in H & A. Somehow, they didn't quite match up to the happenings which the writers gave us - but close! ...

Thanks again for letting me know about Barbra. I'll tell the others if I hear from them - or perhaps our thread will get lost now. In the meantime, my best wishes to your wife and family - and the cats. Hope you all have a happy new year.

Regards from Berona
p.s. say hello to the wheelie bins for me.


Allan Report 27 Jan 2014 22:00

The 'lurker' is here :-D :-D

Berona, I'm not sure whether you mean Barbara, or Barbra. If the latter then Barbra is no longer a member of GR. I do keep in touch with her so I'll let her know. She won't be able to post but will be able to read them :-)



Berona Report 27 Jan 2014 21:51

Just bumping this thread up as a reminder.

Where is everyone?


Berona Report 12 Jan 2014 05:45

Just a reminder to Marion and Barbara that our silly soapie is on again tomorrow (Monday, 13th) over your way. All these breaks they have been having have now put you almost three months behind us in the storyline, so Kim and I will have to be careful not to spoil things for you when we discuss it. The new season starts here in another couple of weeks.

Hope you have all had a lovely festive season with your families and that the new year finds you healthy and happy. Kim...I do hope you improve. Thinking of you a lot and hoping things get better for you.

Hope you all have a happy new year!


Berona Report 24 Dec 2013 22:06

Kim!!! So good to hear from you, at last... Sorry to hear you have not been well, but so glad to hear from you direct, instead of wondering how things are with you.
Good to know you are in good hands and hoping for improvement all tht time. Keep your chin up and hope that silly soapie takes your mind off things when it comes back on.
In the meantime, it's amazing the amount of followers who are offering their theories on the chat board! Some of them must play the promos over and over to study every word said, who is missing from the scene, what they are wearing, what music is playing, etc. How fanatical is that?

Hope you have a lovely Christmas with your closest ones.
The same wish goes out to Marion and Barbara too.


MEgirl Report 24 Dec 2013 09:50

Hello to all my Home and Away Genes friends. Just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy 2014. I hope to be with you all next year still watching this silly show and surveying the damage from the bomb.

My health is not good as you would know by now and deteriorates daily. I have the best doctor in Australia who goes above and beyond, so I'm in good hands. I do hope you are all well.

Have a lovely celebration with your families. Best wishes, Kim. <3 <3 <3 <3


Berona Report 14 Dec 2013 21:52

Very sad for poor Indi. She and the other Walkers have now gone out of the show here - only Sasha left in the care of Irene.

You are now having a 4-week Winter break. UK viewing was only about 3 weeks behind until last August, when they took a 6 weeks Summer break. That put you behind us by 9 weeks....and now another 4 weeks will put you 13 weeks behind us - 3 months! Nobody minds being behind other places, but so much happens that it is difficult for people with poor memories (like me) to remember back that far so that we can talk about it to you without telling you too much and spoiling it for you.

Well, only ten days to go - so in case I don't get back, I hope you have a lovely Festive Season and a better than ever new year.
