    Well that works. I'll have to modify my usual searching method.

    Doesn't explain why they changed the categories drop-down list action. I'll manage ..... somehow.

    We are looking at a lot of rain coming down over the weekend, the remnants of a tropical low that didn’t actually become a cyclone but has all the rain, Carnarvon has just had it’s heaviest ever recorded rainfall of 176mm in a day so hopefully there will still be some left in the system.

    Is that where all the bad wheel barrows are banished?.... o_O

    or are they breeding them up there, to reintroduce them back into mainland work sites?....:D

    I've never seen an Echidna around here....

    though, there was this hole dug near the house under a bit of wood that had fresh termite tracks on it....

    that's rock hard ground, too..... can't think of any other critter that would dig there looking for anything..?...

    he's welcome to all he can eat...:)

    Mysterious holes and no birds - be carful Trev who knows what could be lurking in your backyard.
    Seriously though, hole could be courtesy of a Bandicoot they tend to dig those sort of holes, as for the birds, is that python still hanging around? We get Echidnas wandering through our garden at certain times of the year, the dogs go berserk, which does serve the purpose of alerting us to the Echidna's presence. I've had to develop several methods for lifting and relocating them.

    Here's a question for the Australian contingent, especially Count. The missus has an itch to move back to regional Australia, and some interesting rural properties have bobbed up around Tenterfield NSW. I don't know that country at all. Photos make it look like the high country south and west of Cooma, which I like except for the fact that it's just unlivable during the inevitable drought. Now, Tenterfield's within range of Stanthorpe (wine) and not tremendously far from Glen Innes (trout), and those things generally mean 'water'. So I wondered if maybe it's not affected quite so badly by drought. Any thoughts?

    Been raining all day, when we went to bed last night there were a couple of “leave now for survival” for Busselton area notices on the radio but the rain sorted them out plus I believe the big ones north of Perth.

    Matt G all depends on where the properties are in relation to the town. To the west tends to be dryish compared to the eastern fall. The town is pretty well drought proofed with bores that can keep the dam topped up. To the West of town it is still drought declared, to the east you get the overflow of north coast rainfall. The whole area is granite country with a mix of cleared land and pristine forests. We have our own wineries and trout as well. I’ve lived here since ‘73 and wouldn’t leave the place. Message me the details of some of the properties you are looking at and I might be able to fill you in on them.
