Whats the matter Steve? You have to wear socks with your sandals? I checked the weather for Adelaide. We would call it pleasant.

I see you're being a bit of a devil on the ducati.ms list.

Grover,

Rule number one - don't believe half of what Steve says.

Rule number two - don't believe the other half either.

Bruce, hopefully you are right, where else would myself (G2) and G1 find somebody so arrogantly devoted to the silver pill!!!!....lol.
Do you need any rain over your way, we have had 1/2 metre here just up in the hills, its all very wet about here at the moment.

Grover, I guess the drought's over then. We have no shortage of rain here ourselves, lots of flooding over the weekend but fortunately not here.

1/2 metre is considered a pretty major snowfall around here. It usually closes the schools and causes major disruptions on the highways. I'm sure its never rained that much all at once although half that is possible.

The Drought is far from over as the inland areas that need it are not getting it at all, that rain was all coastal within 50km as the crow flies be a long time before things change I reckon

Bruce, as Martin tells it, the drought is a long way off yet. Its an amazing country, my daughter lives at the bottom of Cape York, they get like 2 to 3 metres of rain a year, 4oooklm south they get like 400mm a year and ravished by bushfires. 200klm's west of me they are in drought and about 200klm's west of Martin the country is barron, very depressing to even ride through there and as far as the eye can see is just brown dirt and even the native tree's are dying. It surely is a land of contrasts!!!

Sounds like Canada in reverse but warmer. When I lived in western Canada we went through a severe drought period. There were dust storms, sometimes it would rain mud and other times the rain would evaporate before it hit the ground. Vast tracts of northern forest would burn (and still do) each summer but fortunately few people live up there. Most communities are Indian reserve-based or have a high native or metis ie mixed blood component. Many of the people depend on forest fire suppression work as an income and there have even been instances of them setting fires so they can get the work.

Steve, - not much happening, just waiting for spring.

I volunteered to help look after the graveyard beside my house and I noticed an interesting stone. They used to build a lot of sailing ships here in Bear River and according to the inscription a certain Captain Parker died in Freemantle, Australia in 1919. Must be a story there somewhere.

i wonder if that was the captain parker who pioneered the lobster industry in wa-and died at the end of the golden age of lobster fishing in that state?
his remains were returned to his native ns as a gesture of respect by the then governor of wa-sir aitocs avon.
