    Gardening Tips

    Cinnamon is usually used when gardeners want to seal off a cut in orchids to prevent any disease. When taking cuttings, @simmo, cut a 1 to 2 cm sliver of bark to expose more of the cambium layer. Cheers, Bobj.

    Cost of moving to Oz

    I would not consider Armidale, NSW, especially in winter. The town is in a hollow and gets enormous frosts and fogs along with woodsmoke from a few thousand wood stoves that quite often settle until late morning. During 2018, there was quite a controvercy regards wood smoke and carcinogens. The airport often gets 'socked in' due to the heavy fogs. I lived in Glen Innes and often had to go there for work seminars. Cheers, Bobj.

    Camping and Caravanning in Australia

    @The Pom QueenThat place you saw the croc with the blunted snout was where I used to camp years ago. The bloke who gave you the barramundi had a 'hammock swag' and a croc walked under it one night. Same place...Most likely same croc, too. Cheers, Bobj.

    That looks decidedly appealing, @The Pom Queen and very relaxing. Cheers, Bobj.

    Camping and Caravanning in Australia

    Just remembered an incident in caravanning. I bought a small ‘van for living in on the Tom Price-Paraburdoo/Robe River iron ore rail projects. After they were completed, I decided to head south and east, across the Nullabor, which, in those days, was 1000 miles of dirt road. Pretty much in the centre of that road, I had a blowout on my 4wd. The temperature was about 109F and it took me 3 hours to ‘break the bead’ of the tyre. Mum stayed in the ‘van while I toiled away. vowed never ever to buy another ‘van due to that. cheers, Bobj.

    That's camping, rough, tough and not a road in sight. Fishing for barramundi and fossicking in the Northern Territory. Cheers, Bobj.
