    Last roast we had on Christmas Day was in Kununurra, WA , 1976 and it was 41 C in the kitchen. Never again; cold collage with chook, or prawns now. And chilled mango... Cheers, Bobj.

    My first sighting of a dugong...Ball Bay is a gazetted dugong sanctuary, but a certain "pro fisherman" used to set his nets in the bay and drag the nets which scraped the seagrass away. Consequently, no one has seen any in the bay for many years. It headed out towards Brampton Island. Did you notice in the photos, the cyclonic conditions we are experiencing from cyclone 'Owen'?? Cheers, Bobj.

    Cyclone Owen is gathering strength in the Gulf Of Carpentaria and will move east and track down the coast of Qld fairly quickly, ending up over the Sunshine Coast on Sunday. Quite humid NW of Mackay, at 79% and 30 C. Cheers, Bobj.
