Well it must be my turn to show myself.This is me in my other persona with the local fire brigade, and my thoughts are fully with all those being affected over in Victoria, especially the fireries battling the fires. The next is my wife Margaret and our clan of clowns. The Bernese (the black one) is now 53kg. He was just 12 weeks old for this pic. They love getting around our feet when observing. The final pic is my old and new gear. The white 2 1/2" tasco was a christmas present from my parents when I was about 13.
Tabulam is West of that..inland between Casino(East) and Tenterfield (West)... 29 degrees South by 152 east approx... if you look at a map you will see a bend like a horse shoe in the Rocky river..I am on the North Bank..
Tenterfield and Casino I’ve found in my “Cosmopolitan Worldatlas”,
Ah, that is the region who live the Coala bears, sitting in eucalyptus trees ?
Yes Geof indeed "Jimmy the Bee Man" is "King". I knew Jimmy from my days in Paramatta (we drank at "The General Bourke Hotel" the only pub I have been barred from for decking someone" so it was a surprise when in "Tabby Pub" the first time I hear a voice from the other end of the bar "Alex what are you doing here" ..mmmm small world eh Jimmy. You drive near 1000 klms and can still find a friendly face.)
I recognise "Arty" and "Terry" in the photo but Micheal needs a close up... is that where Bintel test their products?
However folks as good as the photos are of the lay of the land one has to see Jimmy's spot to comprehend the view..It is really something he must be able to see almost to the coast.. I think you can see Mt Warning from there ..that would be something to see the first sunlight hitting Australia on that mount whilst you are still semi dark... I have asked him if I can do some lightening shots there which he has agreed to...but I would love to get Mt Warning at dawn.
AND Ipson I have never seen a Koala around there (within 200klms).. does not mean they are not present, but we see more kangaroos ( I have about 12 come round home at dawn and dusk) ....mmm you can bar be que kangaroo and I think there is a butcher in Casino who makes sausages with Kangaroo ..I know he sells Emu meat and pretty sure he does a bit of kangaroo...its tuff however but very good meat health wise.
[WadeH] I absolutely love the Bernese Mountain Dog. I don't think you will ever regret having taken him under your care (unless you are averse to deep, long tunnels being dug in your yard). A good friend used to have a female of the breed; I mentioned on a couple of occasions that if she had to go for some reason I'd take her off his hands in a flash. The only negative side was that, while she had a reasonable area in which to exercise, if she 'got away' she'd disappear for hours - though she always came home (usually with some other dog's feeding dish in her mouth).
Yes John the Bernese are a wonderful breed and Dylan likes nothing more than lots of hugs and attention. Our property is 5 acres with this winter creek running through the middle. Sophie and Dylan (now 1 3/4 years old) love to run amok in it!! Sophie thinks she is a Bernese Mountain Terrier and is from the dog refuge, she was abandoned as a 10 week old pup and is now 4 yrs.
