Thanks AB, good to be able to pay the bills and have some funds for redevelopment and to put some back into the drought bonds we used up in the last three dry sessions. Collected the 150 Australian Bass fingerlings from the fish breeding guys and released into the largest dam. They are a lot more expensive now. The first lot I put in in 1988 were 20 cents each, in 1993 they were 30 cents, now $2.00 each. I didn't get silver perch again this time as they taste too muddy for my liking, probably as they eat a fair bit of weed as well as bugs etc, whereas the Bass are more insectivorous and taste "cleaner". The fish guys seemed to be promoting a new fish called the "Jade Perch" but I was reluctant to get any until I have done the homework. I am at the headwaters of the Mary River and do not want to trigger an environmental nasty. I have just come in from de-suckering the Lady Finger bananas and feeding the tops to the cows. The bunches that we have harvested lately are really sweet and dehydrate really well for storage. The weather today is just beautiful, 31 C 60% relative humidity, 15km/hr SE breeze off the ocean. Time to sit back with a couple of cold Pilseners under the big persimmon tree and take it all in . Bye.
