Default So much activity!

Hi all,

alt.pc had been so quiet that I had actually unsubscribed, but this
afternoon I thought to check it out on google and lo and behold, there
are so many of the old names back and chatting!

I am still busy, I still have no life (still working full-time and
attempting to get the Ph.D. finished outside work hours - by the end
of the year with any luck). My little 1/8th acre plot has been ignored
for the better part of two years and it looks it :-(

And we now have a motorway in construction in what used to be the bush
block behind my place, although I can't complain about that too much
as they are being the model of community consultation and
consideration. Every time our community has raised a concern it has
been listened to and acted on, which is great. They're building a 10 m
levee behind our back fences and that will be xenoscaped in due
course.

I'm hoping to get a bit more native landscaping done once summer has
passed.

Good to see that so many of you are doing well and fighting the good
fight. Now we jsut need to rouse Mark and Heather out of their hidign
places!

Tara

Nice to know you're still out there ...even though what you're doing sounds

thanks pete good to know i've got good solid cyber freinds out there
huh chuckle giggle.

welcome back tara,

always work to do hey should be a law a gainst it, me and bev just
finished doing a MYOB course at TAFE so hoping we can generate income
from that buy either bev working for someone she did 2 levels of the
thing, or me doing work at home for local business people with bev's
help of course.

anyhow we've had some good rain here over the past 7 days 140mm in
total so far and more on the way i dare say, a fair sort of cyclon up
off the west aussie nth coast a bit of a way out to sea yet, but
reckon the wa'ers and perth resi's will be wanting it to hit landfall
and hopefully bring drought breaking rain. it had dropped to 960 hp
forget what was tracey in darwin back in the 70's?

we need 20 more mm to hit the meter of rain for the year long time
coming around here, only 670mm last year. still transplanting seedling
native euc's around especially now that it's rained. our 170++ tom'
plants are loving along with allour other summer stuff of course.

have fun all and take care

especially me mate pete

Hi Tara :-)) Nice to see you again after so long.

I am still busy, I still have no life (still working full-time and
attempting to get the Ph.D. finished outside work hours - by the end
of the year with any luck). My little 1/8th acre plot has been ignored
for the better part of two years and it looks it :-(


That time has gone sooooo fast. It seems like just yesterday hat you had
moved in there. I must be getting old as the years all seem to pass in a
flash these days.

And we now have a motorway in construction in what used to be the bush
block behind my place,


Bummer!

Visit us more often- I may even get off my bot and post a bit more when I
get the current round of renovations out of the way.
