Looking at that photo it's amazing anyone survived a trip in it. No front brakes and solid rubber tyres on cobbles...

We don't have up to date mobiles to take instant photo's with, so you can imagine the chances of finding the camera, setting it up, getting as close as possible to the patio window and getting this li

A few photos from Strath Brora taken yesterday on a walk to visit the remains of an Iron Age fort.  (Fort photos to follow):   Carol Rock:     Footbridge over the Brora

The logo is not really on Brew, I put it on for an email I sent to a group that I drive a minibus for, (all retired). I refer to them as St. G's travel group. B.

Our cook stove is propane, and heating is a woodstove.

 

On your story of Mario, when I migrated to Australia in 1979, I worked at a tin mine, biggest one in the southern hemisphere, I lived in a very small town a few miles south of the mine. This was "Bush" miles from any large towns!!

I was in one of the pubs one evening, and this old feller at side of me said "are you a pommie" I said yes, he then said "You've come all the way from England to here" he was dumbstruck, and kept repeating it.

A mate of mine put me in the picture, the elderly feller and his Brother worked a local farm, and he'd been no further than 15 miles out of town all his life, so just couldn't grasp the "jet set" lifestyle.

Although I still live in a very rural area, my friends have worked and lived in different areas of the states, some have roots that go back to the first local settlers 200 years back, yes, the only people who lived around here back then were nomadic Native Americans. This area was settled around 1820 onwards.

 

Lovely. I like to hear stories like that. My uncle and his family emigrated years ago. His wifes uncle had a sheep farm and he worked in that atmosphere for a while. Back home he was a P C and so he wanted to get back into that profession. He went on to become a prison warden and was eventually the ... god my english is getting worse or my memory. He was head of the prison service. Sorry about that . Don't know whether its old age or what but I've had some problems lately forgetting things. I'm wondering if the confusion I sometimes feel is due to my medication. But more on Ailments etc.

Anyway this uncle started out in Alice Springs and eventually moved to Brisbane.

It looked a bit busy up there this morning.
