I love going there, i have managed to see every show they have done since we arrived except for this current one. The special affects are amazing and the storylines are always touching.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

@ramot, reminds me of my time in the East Kimberlies many years ago. I passed Victoria River Downs in the NT and there were 6 choppers for the annual muster and the manager was instructing the pilots where to work. Been buzzed several times by chopper pilots working out the cattle from the bush while I was  fishing the Keep and Ord Rivers.

In the 1960s, the Toyota 4wds were the main cattle 'collectors'. The driver would bump up a scrubbie and the offsider would grab the animal's tail then the beast would be, non too gently, bumped down so the men could tie the beast's legs, then on to another scrubbie.. Dangerous, and very well paid, but slow. Hence the introduction of the helicopter.

Cheers, Bobj.

Perfect night for the Mooloolaba Boat Parade last night. Over 40 boats from tiny tinies to sea going yachts took part. Such a lovely Christmas atmosphere.

Hot day today. Nice now it’s dark. Had to sit on the grass with sprinklers on as much cooler than under patio.

A big 'thank you' from the resident cod for its Boxing Day brekkie (6.35am) where I go fishing.

Boxing Day tradition - although no actual hunting.

What a horrible brutal tradition that was.

That's amazing, the fish over here are massive.

A pom work colleague of mine was taken fishing for the first time in his life and on the Monday brought us a photo of him holding a Murray cod weighing 120 lbs that he caught in a reservoir.  The aussie blokes were spitting feathers, said they'd been fishing all their lives and never got one that big.  Our colleague said "Oh, I caught two, here's the other one"  🙂

My first winter in England,  Pontefract, to be honest, was rather chilly; it was in  1947, but I had had a few colder while a tot in India,  we lived in Simla for a winter and Murree.
