Hi Westmar

G'day from Brissy. There are quite a few Aussies on the forum and we even have our own part of the board where sometimes even those from the US come and visit.. generally we offer good (?) advise and have a fun time.. come and say g'day to all the troops.

Well, you are from the back of beyond, well past the black stump. I had no idea where Flinton was until I ran it on Google Earth. I hope you are getting a bit more honey now some of the vegetation is flowering. That seems never to be the problem here in the city as there seems there is always something in flower. I have never had to feed in the 17 years I have kept bees here.

I am sorry to hear of your leukemia. The rounds of chemo seem to take a heap of energy just to get through. I hope it goes well for you

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
