Marra tends to be used around mining communities - you hear it a lot over the north east too

Daughter calls grand-daughter this even though it is nothing resembling her name.
What does it mean?
And no she is not from Whitehaven, the north east or a mining community. :LOL:

It is an old mining saying to someone who is equal to yourself.

John & 123, I'm sorry to burst your bubbles, but what about:

05:06:07 08/09/10?

There was one last year, too: 03:04:05 06/07/08.

Then there's:

00:01:02 03/04/05

01:02:03 04/05/06

02:03:04 05/06/07

06:07:08 09/10/11

07:08:09 10/11/12

etc, etc....

Then you can go backwards:

12:11:10 09/08/07

etc, etc..... ;)

Pourquoi?

The Aussies do their cricket commentary different to us - we would say 128 for three whilst the Aussies would say three for 128.

Ho hum.
