Wednesday 22nd May 2019

Most of you know I had a few problems over the summer with diabetes and today the doctor came to town and checked me out she came in on the Flying Doctor Service.... Which was near two hours late they had others to look after that's fine by me...

They did a heap of test and took a heap of blood, then they talked me into a flu shot... which we both had today...

Back home mid afternoon it looked like rain...


We were hope ing for more rain and we got nothing by Sunset.


I had a sunset on last night and would never put two up in two days but this was special...


Five minutes later it looked like this but still no rain....

We were going to the chemist shop tomorrow a 100km's away 200km return but just feel like a good sleep, think the flu shot made me feel a bit off, but I am fine, Carol said she needs a sleep she had the same flu shot... Mat call the Chemist off till next week...

I did do a bit of work early this morning filled a few wall cracks in the underground I check about every six months. You get hair line size cracks that we fill with No More Gap filler that stops and problems...

What happens is you get a small crack and if you do nothing the air gets in and dry the soil and it gets bigger maybe a wide as a match stick do nothing and it gets bigger... So I fill them up really early and all is good...

Have fun maybe a better day tomorrow...

 

 

 

Tuesday 21st May 2019

A real mix today we worked inside and outside the home here in White Cliffs, today was a real mix of job and I like that it does make for a better day...


I show you this the other day our new hot water service installed in place...


The hot water service no has a top on it to keep the rain and dust out, and to all the people who have told me, yes that is a blue milk create it was the right and it is White Cliffs you use what you have up here in the outback...


Tell me if you know what plant it is I like to know what it is called... We did not plant it and it grows wild here in White Cliffs sometimes it is White or Blue as you can see the one is pink...


I am the baker here and my first home made loaf for this year, not bad ...


We moved the television to a new wall inside the underground today it looks better and better to view. It was under the window...


This was good to see Carol sat down for the first time this year and got back into art, she went out yesterday and did some art with three other ladies. Today she worked on her own...


Went outside at sunset and took my first sunset picture for the year.... Not bad...


Looking over the town tonight at sunset, the sky looks like a fire ball...

 

As I said a bit of a mix tonight that make Gail happy she told me she likes Three Dots when I have a mix of pictures, you all have fun..

We got 28c here today with a blue sky most of the day...

 

 

 

 

Monday 20th May 2019 (Happy Birthday Scott)

Yes Scott's birthday and he on his way to Sydney to get more computer training, tonight he in Canberra staying with his sister Happy Birthday Scott.

We were going to build a new bathroom outside next to the kitchen and it was going to be base on a large metal frame. Carol and I have decided to can, that idea and rebuild our current bathroom laundry we are going to move the laundry out to new spot we have.


Home of the new laundry next to the back door...


The bathroom rebuild will be a lot quicker and cheaper as it's already there.. It is underground and was built as a temporary bathroom years ago.


The new bathroom fit a new shower base remove the wash tub, the shelf and all on it, washing machine to the new laundry area..


I build the rock wall to the roof and install a ceiling, tiles new basin and draws ...

The large metal frame will be moved (again) and used as a workshop for me to use. A bit late seen I almost finished building the house...

But I enjoy have it all the same...

There's only two of us we do not need two toilet’s and two bathrooms 99% of the time... We have to walk past the old bathroom to get to the new one... So the new bathroom is no more the old bathroom going to get a major make over...

Back in White Cliffs and tonight we are off to the White Cliffs Hotel for a meal with about a dozen others... White Cliffs it never stops...

Back to cleaning up tomorrow I take another load to the tip...

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Sunday 19th May 2019

Well "Three Dot" is a bit of a no go tonight we had no power for, my fault but go it fixed just now so we are late but all good now...

Went to the hotel for coffee this morning and sat and talked for three hours... Still cleaning up inside as we clean each room we are tossing what we don't want away and we have tossed a lot away, need some paint now and get stuck into that...

A change of mine again yep we did it again Carol had a idea and I think we will go with it, more in the next day or two...

Have fun, no power but that was my fault all good now...

Out front of home in the late afternoon the first bird we have seen this year in White Cliff...


That's our front landing and I spent all afternoon cleaning it up I took a trailer load to the tip all sorts of stuff paint cans sticks just general rubbish blowing in on the wind...


Looking East towards Bourke It a great view from top of our place...


Taken from the back of our land looking towards the top of Smith Hill and the White Cliffs Water supply. In the past there were to many trees to see the tanks but the trees have all fallen in the drought...


I have always kept away from here because the Kangaroos always slept here (around 24yr's that I know off) around 15 every night... Right now nil, not one left.


The far back of our place not a roo to be seen...

Where do rocks come from there seems to be more rocks on the ground than before, maybe all the trees are dead and I can see more than before...

Bernie you get better soon...

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Friday 17th May 2019

Just before we left in November last year we had trouble with the "Hot Water Service" I installed it in 1995 when we brought the place it was the first thing I installed at the time. It was a really big day all the parts you need to do the job I had to find... Like any job in White Cliffs you use what you have.

The old hot water service was gas that's LP gas and Gas was getting over the top price wise when we got back it would not start. While in Wodonga we went and seen Lee and got a new "Electric Hot Water Service" and sat it in the car... So today I removed the LP Gas model and installed a new Electric Model 2400w 50lt runs on 240v power.


Times like this I miss a good hardware shop so I used what I had and plugged it in... Wonderful hot shower tonight in side the underground home.. I still need to build a cover and will do that over the weekend...

I Need some rocks to do some building found a heap of them above the house but more on that later...


The heavy rain last month washed out our little creek that runs off the top of the hill.. I go for a walk and see if I can find an Opal...


My tree that I planted back in 1996 made it over summer and few new trees have started to grow...


This is a native that popped up over summer I try keep it alive...

The White Cliffs Music Festival is on over the weekend, not me style of music. Got the trailer going this afternoon and plan to clean up outside over the weekend...

You all have fun this weekend we will and it's coffee at 10am tomorrow...

 

 

 

Thursday 16th May 2019

I never even started the car today, it's about time we gave it a big rest.. We did a lot of cleaning up inside the underground apart from using the vacuum cleaner we tossed out a heap of rubbish that we no longer use...


Green, on our return yesterday we found a light green colour on the ground, one of the big pots is missing see the big pot when we left there was two, one missing... It was empty so it may have been blowen away by strong wind...


Beside the drive way today look how green it is...


Looking towards Queensland to the North from home ...


This is proof you can grow what you like in the outback, you just add water...


I am unsure what plant this is but it looks ok I leave it and see what happens...

But the one thing missing is the wildlife (David and Sue) you can drive around and not see a kangaroo, emu there is nothing alive not even an ant I have seen nothing...

It was cold in the caravan last night so we moved inside the Underground Home today where it is 25c and that is 2c above normal for this time of year (23c)...

While away they have had a lot of wind a lot of rubbish out front on the landing comes from other people, I may get to that at the weekend...

Time to do more cleaning... It's all good fun...

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 15th May 2019

It's 7:15pm and I just got around to doing Three Dots... First we are back in White Cliffs after a 300km drive from Broken Hill...

The underground home, well to tell the truth perfect, apart from very find dust and I mean very find dust it's just as we left it just over six months ago... We had one rock fall from a wall in the old bathroom and that no problem...

The biggest problem a split plastic pipe where the water runs into the toilet system... Took a bit of time but it's fixed now (I think) will tell you tomorrow when the glue dry...

Biggest job was cleaning shelf's in the panty then packing them with new food... Washing out the refrigerator, freezer then packing everything away....

I was asked about the cost of food why so much, take a house with nothing in it food wise, then we are looking at food for four to six weeks and you buy it all in two day... But you do catch up in a way at the end of the year we eat what we have and buy nothing in the last four weeks before we go away...

Green it is very green here a lot of grass across the outback it looking good that what rain does....

 

I take pictures tomorrow, no wildlife to be seen, it been so dry and hot all the wild life has moved away or it dead... It's sad but no Emu, Kangaroos no nothing here right now...

 

Pictures tomorrow, you all have fun...

At 2pm we said let's keep going to Mildura, and we did... Stopping at Red Cliff about 5km's from Mildura for the next three night...

We did about 450km's today our biggest day in the last six month's... It was a really easy drive...

A shocking day for everyone in South East Australia we had a top of 9c and wind a very cold wind rain, it was a shocker of a day but we stuck to the plan visit the Darlington Point Zoo and we did...

I put the pictures up and let you add a title...

You all have fun this weekend...

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 9th May 2019

Today we made a trip to Griffith 35km's North of Darlington Point where we are staying... We did a bit of shopping in town... That is a very busy place, everywhere you go it is packed.


The main street of Griffith...


It is a very busy place...


We were looking for a place to park in the main street but gave up and went to the plaza...


I think that plane been flying in the same spot for 40yrs in the main street...


Nice building, I think a Mosque in Griffith, nice looking building...


That's cotton growing there, so much of it...


I have never seen so much cotton, the last time we were here there was fruit trees, now not a fruit tree to be seen...

We are book tomorrow for a trip to the local Zoo in Darlington Point....

A really good day we had fun today having lunch in the Griffith Plaza, I had a diabetic Dough Nut today...

 

All good here have fun we will at the Zoo tomorrow...

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 8th May 2019

We left Temora this morning and headed West then South via Ardlethan where we had a good look around.. Next shop was, Grong Grong it is a small town that is located in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia. The town is situated on the Newell Highway, 23 kilometres east of Narrandera in the Shire of Narrandera. The name Grong Grong is an Aboriginal term meaning "bad camping ground" or "very bad camping ground" (yep that's about right...).

Next Narrandera, until around 1949 also spelled "Narandera", is a town located in the Riverina region of southern New South Wales, Australia. The town lies on the junction of the Newell and Sturt highways, adjacent to the Murrumbidgee River, and it is considered the gateway to the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area...

And our stop for a few night "Darlington Point" is a small town on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River in the Riverina district of western New South Wales, Australia. It is part of the Murrumbidgee Council local government area. The centre of town is four kilometres from the Sturt Highway, along Kidman Way.

So home for a few day is "Darlington Point" around 30km's South of Griffith where we plan to go shopping at tomorrow...


Our camp at "Darlington Point" in the caravan park...


We are right beside the Murrumbidgee River, a truck crossing the river today. There is water in the Murrumbidgee River but not a lot as you can see in the picture..

This is part of the old bridge, it now sits at the entry to the caravan park. See the truck on the highway that's carry cotton yep rolls of cotton...

As we drove into the local area we passed a number of cotton crops...


Our camp, it's a nice spot next door to a bbq area with under cover table...

As I said we are just outside Griffith, and near the Darlington Point Zoo...

We are now a bit closer to home should be there by the end of next week... White Cliffs people put the coffee it be good to see you all...

Did you know that over a 100 people a week read "Three Dots".

Have fun..

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 7th May 2019

Temora today we looked around town then it was back to the showgrounds for lunch they have a good $2 shop in town and a good hardware shop...

There is a Woolworth's and IGA Supermarket... a good main street most shops are full and trading well it is hard to find a parking spot in the main street...

 


There are some great buildings in Temora you just need to drive around..


There are so many church's in Temora...


It's a town you need to look around...

We move on early tomorrow morning somewhere to the west of here towards the Griffith area...

A quite afternoon at the caravan...

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 6th May 2019

We left the Canberra area around 9am this morning and turned towards home, it's a long way from here. Today we drove around 250km's and ended up in Temora NSW we had a good trip stopping at Binalong they say in Bi-na-long it was a nice town very small but very busy...


Glass blowing is a big business in town this young lad is in training...


The glass shop also has a coffee shop and a lot of glass for sale...


Spring creek it is in the Ned Kelly movie and we slowed to about 1kph as around 500 cattle crossed the bridge.


There were around 500 walking the same way as we were going...


That's a truck in front of us as a few locals cross the road...


We rolled into Temora 250km's west of Canberra and said that's it for today we found the local showgrounds and called it quits for today...

We had a fun day, Carol happy she has television and I turned the heater on they say 3c in Temora tonight...

From Bill in Queensland north of Brisbane a local dropped into his home last week to say hi a wild Kookaburra... That's all Australian a Hill Hoist and a Kookaburra...

Sunday 5th May 2019

Three Dots will be up early today due to Adam Birthday Party tonight in Canberra...

Doug sent us some more mini rail picture, I note all the rain water has drained away and you have better weather..

Doug train with a contract driver at the control's hahaha...

This is a big day for this train owner it took years to build and cost over $60,000 yep you got that right big money...

My guess is they call it a turn table where they park the trains when not in use...

Some of these trains are very heavy, far to heavy to pick up...

Thanks Doug for the pictures great stuff...

 

Sent to me from White Cliffs great picture, we do not know who took the picture but I must say "Great Shot"


It's a great picture... Taken Monday last after the rain...

 

 

Today is "Party Time" in Canberra and we will stay here on Sunday then set sail for home in White Cliffs it be a slow trip home with the caravan on the back via Mildura and Broken Hill my guess is we will be home around the 16th to 17th May...

 

Have Fun....

 

 

 

Friday 3rd May 2019

We sure had rain over night 48mm which was good but we sure copped it overnight here at the caravan park it turned dust to mud...

Then Aldi in Canberra we needed some drinks for Adam party tomorrow night (soft drink for me.)

And the last place was my daughter Susan who lives in Canberra...


Susan Unit is on floor three so she has a good view....

Sunday 28th April 2019

Doug in Queensland sent me some pictures for Three Dots today so I put the website up early today. The family here been away on the coast for ten day and home today and we move out in the morning...

Hi Rex, Hope you’ve stopped bleeding!
Over Easter the AALS held their annual convention of live steamers (AALS) at the main Brisbane club’s track. Each state gets a go on a rotating 6 year voluntary roster. (I did not attend this time.)

On Tuesday our Nambour club hosted a ‘post convention day’ at our track, to which we had plenty of visitors, with a total of about 40 heads for lunch.
Many of them brought their loco’s with them, but only a few were unloaded & running as it was pissing’ rain most of the day. So...... much talking was done instead, as we have plenty of covered areas. Nambour had about 150 mm rain over the long weekend & up to Wednesday

I’ll attach a few photos from the day, note the section of track with water flowing over the rails! A bit of water didn’t worry the steam locos & drivers!
The Southern 105 is actually an electric ‘dummy’ steamer look-alike!
My electric loco stayed dry in the Coaster Van!

All photos taken on my small Olympus digital camera.

The next day was when I bought the new phone with it’s camera, which I’ll try out tomorrow at our public rides day.

How much red mud will be in your tank? good that you finally got some rain tho’.

Cheers, Doug.

(Queensland)


Good picture Doug, that's a nice train..


Then the rain came along but the trains on this line just keep running...


Looks cold and wet, but always time for a chat...


That's a lot of work... building a train like that... To build they cost around $30,000.00


Lunch is served...


River crossing...


That one way to remove the water...


That's real steam train...

As I said, we move off tomorrow morning back towards Canberra we have a 40th birthday next Saturday night then a really slow trip home to White Cliffs, really slow...

Susan when home to Canberra today and we will see her next weekend at Adam 40th party...

From Canberra it is about 1200km's home via Mildura and Broken Hill...

 

I have been asked where to next year, maybe a long stop in Terang Victoria it has a nice caravan park that we may stay in for three to four months... We talked about the best place we have been to that we like and we both said Terang... We will talk to the caretaker about a price for a long stop... Nothing set in cement yet but we are working on a plan...

Can plans change, they sure can one park we were going to this year had a bush fire and the park burn and is now closed... The fire was well before our visit...

 

You all have fun, next week...

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday 27th April 2019

Very nice area and worth a look I left at return to Wodonga via the supermarket need food for the cat.

I seen a lot that will help in White Cliffs we spent a lot of money on tree's in White Cliffs, dead they are all dead I am told nothing left. So we may need a garden of rock black, white just need to look around.

THIS IS CRAZY:

NSW Police said they pulled over the 24-year-old on the Pacific Highway at Ourimbah yesterday afternoon after noticing she was using her mobile phone behind the wheel.

While they spoke with her, officers noticed the car seats her three young children were in were not properly secured.

The children were aged one, three and five.

Police said the younger two did not have their shoulder straps tightened properly.

The woman was issued with four different infringement notices — three for not properly restraining the children and another for using her mobile phone.

She was fined $1,348 and received 28 demerit points — 14 of which were accrued due to double demerits during the Easter long weekend... Read More Click Here

 

We had a day at home in Wodonga today apart from a trip to the Pet Shop to buy dog food for the dog we are looking after.... I try take a picture of the dog...

Sunday 21st April 2019

Running really late I had pictures on the New Phone, and I had to get the pictures from the phone to the computer... That's a shocking job I ended up sending myself an email there must be a better way....

The Big News:

Rain in White Cliffs.. 5mm and more to come... that means a lot take our rain water tank 1mm on the roof puts 70lt's in the tank... So 5mm x 70 = 350 lt's in the rain water tank and they say there is more rain on the way....

Vicki sent me a picture water in her garden, how good that...

The sky tonight at sunset in White Cliffs, the town may get more...

Susan picture taken in Batemans Bay yesterday she and her mother drove over from Canberra for the day...

Nice blue sea that area be busy over Easter...

Saturday 20th April 2019

Did not go to far today Carol had a sore foot we are all getting old but we did go for a drive to the Albury City Gardens in Wodonga Place.... They are nice gardens to visit, I want to go back and do the Rainforest Walk at the gardens and the Heritage Walk...


You do not get better than this...


We sat in the park and had lunch...


There were a lot of people in the gardens today around lunch time....


If you live in the area go have a look...

Now the reason I went to the gardens today and that was to fine a wishing well...


Read below.


The story behind the is that my father built it in the gardens and at the age of six I went with dad on a saturday and laid a rock or two at the wishing well... I hear they are talking about moving it... They need to modify it not move it... my first bit of rock work...

They are talking big rain over the next four days in White Cliffs I hope they are right, if they get 20 to 30mm or rain the town will turn into a mud pie...

Easter Sunday tomorrow and you all have fun we are looking at having a family day...

 

Have fun...

We are in Wodonga at Carol daughter we are baby sitting the house and the big dog, really big dog, the family going away about ten days. It was a hard day we packed up at Troy and Kylie place dropped off the caravan at Dianne and Adrian place. Then we moved in Wodonga...

 

All pictures tonight came from Bill in Queensland, they are great pictures...

 

Hi REX, I Decided to have a look at the boats after walking to the point at Moooloolaba  this morning so I could show you some new pictures. Hope you like them .

The canoes are taken at the Mooloolaba outriggers club which is near the Yacht club there . I also had a look at some of the bigger boats where the trawlers are, I also took a photo of Last vintage which looks like a pretty old pleasure boat , haven’t seen that one before at the wharf. I have visited this area many times for work purposes as quite a few trawler operators buy supplies from Auto one such as filters and engine parts . One of those customers has 5 boats , I have known him for many years .

As I said up top great pictures, really good....

I hope to do some small repairs on the caravan tomorrow, looking forward to seeing Wodonga area over the next ten days...

 

You all have fun and Bill thanks for the pictures tonight...

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 16th April 2019

Today Tuesday we went for a drive to the Hume Weir. White Cliffs has 1% water and unless we get more rain it will happen in Albury Wodonga... All pictures today are by Carol...


Looking at the back of the Hume Weir wall today you can see it is low on water...


The first thing you notice is the road it is near perfect I have never seen the road to the weir in such good condition...


The road around the weir on the NSW side of the weir...


Bethanga Bridge, look how dry the hills are in the background of this picture...


You have to ask "where's the water", I have seen the water down to 6% many years ago and years back I was in my old boat and the water was so high we could not get under the bridge... Adrian and I where in the boat at the time.

 


My father Jack (born 1903-1986) came to Albury to work on the building of the Hume Weir years later he told me he spent time working in this old stone quarry the stone was used on the weir wall around the corner..

 

We had a good day and good fun at the weir...

Thurgoona the town I always call home... Today my daughter Kylie lives here with Troy...


My mothers surname was Wignell, and the Thurgoona St. Johns Church was built on Wignell land back in the 1800s it is still there today 288 Old Sydney Road Thurgoona...


This is the site of the local Telephone Exchange where my mother lived and worked... Site that is in the 1980s the really old home burned down in a bush fire, it was replace with the new home you see in the picture in the 90s... It is next door to Kingross Hotel Thurgoona but has nothing to do with Kingross...


Out back of the house is the only part of the old home a blacksmith shop from the 1800s it is still in working order... I built and bent red hot steel there when I was around 10yr's old with my late Uncle George I stayed at the old house and back 60yr's ago he fired it up to show me.... The good old days....


Then late afternoon my granddaughter Joyce took me to the local playground, Joyce said you are old and slow you need a walking stick... Come on girl give me a break I am 70yrs old in a few weeks, July....

 

Not all of today was good, my team Geelong LOST in the AFL. That's not good...

 

So time to say Have fun we did today driving around Thurgoona...

 

 

 

 

 

Friday 12th April 2019

Thurgoona is home to my Mother born 1916 - 1992 today my daughter Kylie just lives down the road from where my mother lived.

Thurgoona Post Office opened on 1 January 1874, closing in 1961. And for 35yr's my mother was working and lived at the Post Office in Thurgoona...

The first land release in Thurgoona was St Johns Hill in 1978, followed by St Jones Green in 1980, Corrys Wood in 1981, St Hilaire in 1985 and THurgoona Park in 1986. The 1980s were a time of massive growth and development in Thurgoona. Thurgoona Drive and Elizabeth Mitchell Driver were completed by 1982, connecting Thurgoona to Albury via the Hume and Riverina Highways. Soon after the Thurgoona Golf Club opened its first 9 holes in 1983, followed by a further 9 holes in 1985. In 1986 the Albury-Wodonga Corporation moved its headquarters to Thurgoona. By 1989, a hotel had opened at the golf course, a new shopping centre was under construction, Thurgoona Public School opened and the Thurgoona Industrial Park opened near the Albury Airport.

In March 2010 Thurgoona saw the opening of a new Thurgoona Plaza, with Woolworths, a Hume Bank branch and many other new shops. New shops include a tandoori restaurant, hairdressing salon, pizza shop, pharmacy, butcher, bakery, two cafés and a takeaway store.

 

Over the weekend I am going to take some pictures of the area just to display on Three Dots.

Tonight we are in Thurgoona at Kylie place in the driveway sorry no pictures but I make up for it tomorrow...

I am here with Joyce my granddaughter....

 

Have Fun...

Tuesday 9th April 2019

On the mover as you know the last two nights we have been on the Victoria Side of the Murray River at Wahgunyah. It was a free camp and a good one but, no power and last night it was cold on the river. We read it will be 2c tonight so we packed up and hit the road driving 75km's to our old hang out at "Walla Walla" it has power for our heater and water a hot shower and toilets...


We are the smallest rig here tonight at Walla gee they done a lot of work here adding a toilet "Dump Point" and two new power poles around the park each of the poles has power and water for a extra four vans....


I am sure we can call this a big rig look at the size of it, most of these are full time home's on the full time... Worth around $250,000 ....


Another big rig Jayco maybe $200,000


This is a really big rig ... A converted bus with a car trailer on the back. The trailer has a washing machine in the front with a dryer... This is a full time home..


And then we have a very small rig "Our's" but it's been home for the last six months and still going strong... By the way it cost $10 a night to stay at Walla or $50 a week $7.15 night...

We are here for three nights then we move into Albury, this park at Walla Walla is getting better and better and the computer sure loves the power...

Hi Doug and Bill in Queensland....

 

You all have fun...

(We are no longer the smallest rig a Ford Transit van just pulled in haha)

Sunday 7th April 2019

We moved out of Benalla this morning and header towards Wangaratta then turned north towards Corowa we found a free camp on the Victoria Side of the Murray River at Wahgunyah. We are right on the river well (30m away) it is a great camp...


From near the caravan that is the Murray River, what a great spot...


Looking back at the caravan so it is not far to the water...


Why do they do it, not far away there are some 20 caravan's and they are so close to each other you have to wonder why.... We are a 100m away with one other caravan and it be 20m away form ours... People like to camp on top of each other...


That is the main bridge across to Corowa...


Nice picture looking across the river...


Looking the other way away from the river, this is a really nice spot...

Well we are here (no power) a heap of water and it's all FREE we are running on solar power now but today we had a heap of sun so we have power tonight...

You all have fun....

Today it was Devenish a small run down very old town around 35km's from Benalla and part of the Wall to Wall Art Festival...


The street was packed today (the power of Silo Art)...

How good is this in Devenish town not that far from Albury Wodonga and Wangaratta... Want a business there is a shop empty across the road, the town needs a coffee shop....

As one person said, Art, It's a touch of class...


Have a read and it is worth reading...


Across the road a very old pub, Carol and I went for a coffee...


Inside the Devenish Hotel we had a bite to eat and a drink (coffee), it very old...


As I said it is very old but very clean and well setup... and today it was packed with people looking at Silo art... We had a good time in Devenish.... It's worth the drive...


Devenish from what I seen only one place open in town "The Pub"...

Went to Aldi in Benalla today, as we are moving off tomorrow just not sure where? I am going to look at a Free Camp on the Murray River been thinking about doing a bit of river camping, will check it out north of here...

Tomorrow another day so you all have a good weekend...

A bad day yesterday my diabetes was a really big problem, I gave up had a shower and went to bed... We had a better day today going to Goorambat then to the "Benalla Caravan Park" we had a good trip from Wangaratta to Benalla today...

If I said have you been to Goorambat, I am almost sure you say no, not far out of Benalla Goorambat was a sleeping town. Today it had 100s of people come to town all in the name of Silo Art that what they all come to see...


How this for art an old Silo in Goorambat, and it is not far from Albury Wodonga, Wangaratta...


Bring a good camera I took these today...


I turn the zoom up on the camera and show you where the action is... a good picture...


Here the other side it has already been done...


Before the art I wonder how busy the pub was in Goorambat, to the pub was full and flat out servicing customers..

As I said we are in Benalla at the caravan park, a bit old but very clean. rain here all day, I take some more pictures tomorrow... tomorrow a really good day....

The NRMA says Australia is lagging so far behind the rest of the world in adopting low-emissions vehicles that a ban on the sale of new internal combustion engines should happen within the next decade.

The UK and France have already announced plans to phase out the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2040, and other countries including Germany and China have indicate they intend to follow a similar path.

NRMA CEO Rohan Lund told Four Corners Australia has a lot of catching up to do.

"So if anything, our targets here need to be a bit more aggressive than what we're seeing in other markets," he said.

"I would expect to start seeing targets that are between 2025, 2030 for banning [the sale of new] petrol-driven cars in this country.

"We don't manufacture cars here — we're recipients of the cars coming from Europe and from Asia.

"I think in many ways we won't have a choice in this country."

We are going out tonight with family and we will pack up the caravan tomorrow and move off toward the Wangaratta area just for a few day...

 

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten will today unveil Labor's climate change policy — the plan it will use to reach its target of cutting emissions by 45 per cent by 2030, and ensure half of Australia's energy comes from renewable sources by 2050.

As expected, Labor is planning to expand the Turnbull Government's safeguard mechanism, forcing around 250 of Australia's biggest polluters to cap their emissions — while exempting the farming sector.
