    Yeah it is compelling in a strange way..... I've had it on for parts this arvo..... with media player in the top corner on a small page with sound.

    hurtling down the tracks with no traffic is kinda cool..... what a great way to get across a wide brown land .. steel on steel..
    ...the landscape hardly changes through the whole show.. there ain't much out there...

    imagine the people who walked those great distances in the heat...... with no change in sight whenever they got to a bit of a ridge....

    sigh....:lol:

    after a few days of 36C in the house..... I coped OK...it's trying to rain and thunder ATM..but it's not succeeding very well.. the breeze is welcome, though......

    At least I don't have to shovel the heat off my driveway....:lol:

    Nice mangoes Trev. I'd like to grow Papaya but not at all wet enough down here. We will be back to 41C ( 105.8 F) by Thursday. You may have the humidity up there but at least you can strip off and have a free cool shower!!;)

    6 degrees here, overnight minimum. Similar forecast for tonight, might be time to start thinking about getting some firewood in.

    Going to see Redd Volkaert & Stuie French playing with Al Tompkins band on 4th of Feb, free non ticketed show at Penrith RSL. ( the same lineup is doing Rooty Hill RSL on Thursday 1st of Feb )

    Getting rather excited about it I must say

    Super!

    Do you know if Redd has anything going on, further south? His site doesn't list anything for those dates, and I'm not having any luck with the usual Aussie sites.

    Thanks all the same. Will look further. I can't imagine he'd spend 25 hours on the plane for two dates, although maybe it's just a mid-holiday target of opportunity.

    Al Tompkins brings him out every couple of years for Tamworth and a few dates to promote his guitars which Redd endorses

    Crikey! I've been so caught up with moving that I completely forgot about Tamworth. Don't tell me it's 2018 already.

    Maybe next time. . . .

    Not only 2018 but the Tamworth weather forecast is a sure indicator that the TCMF is on. Sat 39 degrees , Sun 40, Mon 41, Tue 41, Wed 40 etc. Every year a heatwave. New theory: country music causes heatwaves.

    Yeah Redd comes out every 2 years for TCMF. He usually does a late night show at the Wests Leagues Club, but this year they have him scheduled to do shows in the afternoon. Looking forward to checking him out.

    I just saw a dog catch fire in the street. Am getting in the fridge before it's too late.

    Just watched it through, some great acts there. Lots of Teles! I really liked the local boys The Spurs, and those girls were great - Tory Forsyth, Aleyce Simmonds and so on. And the Canadians weren't too bad either. I'll get down there one day. Thanks Hoodie.

    I'm getting together with my trio mates for the first time in months for a practice this arvo...

    I'll bet we'll all be pretty rusty for a while.... I've hardly played any guitars over the summer, so far....

    should be fun though to make some noise again...:)
