  2. Droughts and flooding rains

    Four days ago, I was debating when I should order a delivery of water, as the levels in our rain water tanks were getting low. Today I'm reading flood warnings for our area. The difference four days can make!!:boat: And areas in western Queensland are still getting fire weather alerts. Go figure.

  4. Smile They never give up... or do they?

    I just had a phone call from a gentleman who announced that his name was Jimmy and that he was calling from the Service Centre of Microsoft. It took 5 tries before I understood that his name was Jimmy - then we went onto Microsoft. I asked him twice what was Microsoft, but he could only repeat...

    Many forum members have, or have been associated with animals. Our dog - Sushi - died 5 December 2012. Our daughter's dog - Chewy- - is staying with us while they are on a trip. Despite their age differential, they got along reasonably well. For the first couple of days, Chewy, didn't...

    As many folks here will know I am profoundly deaf. Since 2002 and up to 2007 I attempted to use the last technologically advanced hearing aids - but to no avail. So I resigned myself to the fact that this was as it was likely to be for the rst of my life. From 2007 until I retired in 2009 my...
