    I might have been a bit jealous that she was moving in on Kimbo but I didn't do anything - HONEST!

    Things seem normal here - power on, internet working, other half went to town to buy spinny thing for extracting honey and noticed nothing amiss, so I guess civilisation is still up and running.

    Or aliens would finally land. This whole thing is getting monotonous. Ever feel like you are in limbo, waiting for something to happen. Some kind of serious financial meltdown (not like that last fizzer). Or a second coming or something? How cool would that be...

    I remember a couple of road signs on the way from Mareeba to Cairns as you are driving along. The first one says "Jesus Is Coming" and you get just enough time to consider this when the next sign is upon you "Everyone look busy!" Haha, it sustains me through the times when old matey fails to appear.

    We had a couple of Jehovah's witnesses come to the gate today. I respectfully told them not to get their pamphlets out as we are already pretty comfortable with our belief systems and it would just be a waste of paper to leave them with us. We had an amiable chat about life, permaculture and I slipped in a little something about Gandhi. They weren't telling me anything new, world ending, plague famine, that sort of thing. I told them I take personal responsibility for all of that gear but that I was doing my best. They thanked us for our courtesy and we sent them off with a bag of lemons.

    Hope I don't get too many more visitors in the near future as the lemon supply is dwindling.

    It was a lovely day for it though and the voltaics were humming.

    You don't need a chat room if you have a gate like that....

    I get really excited every time I hear them talk about a double dip recession... Bring it on I say. We permies would rise to the top of the heap really quickly. Though like you Grahame I wonder what my place would look like if my life did depend on it....

    g'day mate - fkn dry argument eh?

    hot and dry, white and bright...
    still, i'd rather be doing drought than floods....who would want to be a Queenslander?

    it has been the usual hell for the last 6 months - and we emerge older and ready for the 6 months of paradise that is ours until about October.
    Climate change keeps upping the ante, and we keep fiddling with the design to stay strong amid it.

    i wish you and yours all the best -
    i leave my place only under duress - and at such times, don't have the happiness for visiting.

    i leave to get a tooth out - pretty well all contact with the outside real is delegated to family - that is the only 2 of my family that do what i say.
    the other 4 are running with the Herd and lost in the stampede.

    i have a job - driving a tractor, towing a scarifier for a traditional farmer who doesn't use chemicals.

    ofcourse i must leave my place for this - but i can do it on back roads and not see another car - i don't have to adapt socially too much - once i'm in the tractor i am safe from social interactions -

    i learn from this farmers situation - i can see what happens when family combine and focus for a couple of generations - i can see the vision realised and how it too must submit to climate....this farmers place is fkn fantastic - all that i could have wanted for myself.....

    but it is shat on - shat on by a climatic trend that will have its way.....their place is still beautiful,,,but only with eyes that can see the depth.....of a vision realised, yet consigned to history and lost to the present.
    it helps me to see my place and reconnect with the beauty....

    so i meet these people right on cue - March comes - and i find inspiration instantly recognisable as the bastard that had been absent for 6 months.
    what happens next, if its the same as previous years - is i'll start wanting poultry, lots of flash new chooks. The Narrogin Poultry Club has an auction on April 14th....

    only a few months ago, i hated poultry....i was shooting chooks because they ventured into my camp....crowing, clucking, shitting and scratching up stuff.....i hated them.

    the wheel turns :)
