The weather was really kind today great blue sky all day almost no wind just great...

Work in the kitchen all day, did a bit more on some rock walls just trying to get it ready to paint. Did the round of two Opal shop taking some pictures it is not easy to take a picture of an Opal in fact it is very hard...


Not bad but not great .... I mean the pictures the Opal are fantastic. These are White Cliffs Opal....


Next shop, a lot better but still not great, the trouble here is the glass in front...


Sunset just a short time ago it is always a good picture to take in White Cliffs the sunsets here are really good...

As I said worked in the kitchen almost all day, apart from a trip to the tip to empty the trailer... A quite day in town...


From the "Royal Flying Doctor Service"

 

That's it for today, Thursday tomorrow and the big power ball $110 million that's a lot of money....

Have fun the rest of the week...

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 16th July 2019

The last of Kylie and Susan pictures from the weekend below great stuff from Gundagai NSW half way to Canberra well Joyce had fun...


I seen it as a kid with my mother and father and it is still there I am glade they have removed the fence...


Joyce had a big weekend she went to Canberra on Friday afternoon and back home on Sunday afternoon the girls Susan and Kylie met in Gundagai and Joyce swap cars...


Good reading at the Dog on the Tuckerbox...

 


As I said yesterday I stop next time and have a look...


Taken from home where did they come from about the size of a car motor and about that weight made of iron stone, you have to wonder how they got here in the first place. This must have been a wile place millions of years ago, as far as we know the closest blast site is 25km's away. How much power does it take to toss a car motor 25km's they are near our home...


When we returned I said this was a dead tree and I showed it on Three Dots about 6wks ago... Look at it now fill of life...


Been having big cleanup the last two weeks and we have another load ready to go to the trip...

 

 

7pm better get today on the net...

Have Fun...

 

 

 

 

Monday 15th July 2019

Ian and Pauline sent some pictures to Three Dots yesterday... See photos: Trip on the "Settlement Point Ferry" across and back. Also photo of a fisherman out in what I thought was deep water.


Settlement Point ferry across and back...


Fisherman out in what I thought was deep, then he walked across... Ian that a good picture...


Pauline on the Settlement Point ferry... I got to keep us out of trouble, Ian the other picture was good this is perfect, that should do it... They are just out of Port Macquarie NSW and it looks good... Thanks guys for the pictures...

 

Kylie at the dog on the tucker box:


Gundagai, NSW Sunday...


Kylie was saying how good the area looked and it has all been done up...


Next time we drive that way we will pull over and have a look...

Thanks Kylie and there is more to the story I put on Three Dots tomorrow night....

 

Been told Joyce is back home after a weekend in Canberra and as we know a trip to the zoo...

 

As for White Cliffs we worked in the kitchen today just need some gap filler... Adrian rang and said he sent me a solder iron in the mail today I sure need it... Thanks for that I sure have a lot of work for it...

Sunday 14th July 2019

Saturday 13th July 2019

We did the coffee thing at Red Earth Opal and Coffee this morning we had a good group there today... I am told tomorrow it at the White Cliffs Hotel at 10am...


While at Red Earth we had a Ford Model "T" turn up after being driven to White Cliffs from Parkes NSW that a big trip for an old car and proves one thing "They don't build them like they used to" ...

All good here and I have been asked about that camera used to take yesterdays moon shot... Two people emailed us at Three Dots today...

Thank you people the camera is a Canon SX430is small in size but it sure has a lot of power. As for the cost no it is not $1000s it cost $280 the last time I looked we paid $299 for ours mid last year... I take around 30 pictures a day many are on Three Dots... If it has a down fall it does not like low light at times... But the zoom power is unreal I can read a number plate easy at 1 km... The picture of the moon yesterday was taken at about 50% zoom... Any more question just email me...

Joyce, my granddaughter is in Canberra for the weekend with my daughter Susan...

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Friday 12th July 2019

Carol went to craft today with the ladies of White Cliffs and seem to have fun... I stayed home and worked on my own design for a lighting bar. Almost finished, at the end of last year my soldering iron failed I tossed it in the bin... Over the summer holiday I went to a well knowen hardware shop and got a new one, which I unpacked today guess what it is dead and will not heat up... Next time I go to "Cheap as Chips"


I used the new store room come light workshop as a test area today a bit of a test and see job, that took me most of today... The lights came from eBay at a $1 each a few weeks ago they are all 12 volt and are run by a battery the battery is charged by a solar cell on the roof of the new kitchen.. (that the bit I am working on now.) right now you can see the wires when I have a solder Iron that works I will solder the wire and push into the 40mm PVC tube..

We have a light switch at the door to the room and painted "Blue" blue I am told means 12 volt as read on the Internet...

 

As we look out the end of our landing down at the "V" in the road a camper van parked for the night may a week...

 


Did wind up the zoom on the camera that's about a $150,000 plus motor home think it reading Jayco Conquest parked there is a free camp about 1 km from the caravan park...


A lot of wind today in town but as you can see a nice blue sky that the moon around 4pm today...


Wind up the camera zoom a little and took the moon, nice picture I have to get out a Tri-Pod I have one some place...

The weekend is here and all is well (sort of) and we are planning a coffee weekend... you all have fun we will this weekend...

I finish the solar cell on the roof... Over the weekend maybe Monday...

Power off all day in White Cliffs while they repaired the power line. It went of at 8am to 4:25pm today... At 10:30am the local phone cell went flat and we lot all phone service in and out of White Cliffs. Just like the old days no internet no phone it was like the old days... "We talked to each other" ha...

.... It is very hard in a underground home without power and lighting.. The first picture in my computer desk, next the guest bedroom I do not think there is anyone in there...


The art lady had a hand held LED light from Cheap as Chips in Broken Hill it did a great job...


There was a very cold wind from the North West today outside 9c at the time of taking this picture as you can see it is still 23c underground...


Carol craft room at the end of the new kitchen, was the home junk room so today we cleaned it out and moved most of the junk to the tip, The craft room needs a lot of trimming, floor lever and Gyprock when in Broken Hill sometime..

The other end of the say room, Carol craft room...

Should be good....

 

In White Cliffs tonight:

Road Boss Rally entrants driven to make a difference from Cowra to Caloundra Bondi Rescue crew swaps beach for bulldust on Mt Hope-White Cliffs backroads

Around 170 adventure seekers driving 70 cars and support vehicles yesterday hit the long, hard backroads from Cowra to the Sunshine Coast on the first leg of the 2019 Road Boss Rally. Today they are travelling from Mt Hope to White Cliffs.

The rally is travelling from central NSW across the remote west into outback Queensland, the Burke and Wills Dig Tree then north to the finish line at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast on July 18. The iconic 10-day 4,250km rally is a major fundraiser for GIVIT and last year it raised $250,000 for the national online charity.             

This year – swapping the beach for bulldust – will be three members of TV’s popular Bondi Rescue – Corey, Reidy and Whippet, aboard their ute the Bondi Beast. An accompanying film production team will produce a documentary of the Bondi crew’s adventures during the rally.

Along the rally route, the Road Boss Rally and GIVIT will deliver requested and vital donations to drought-affected communities, while spreading a welcome financial boost to remote towns.

The crew spent their first night (July 9) in Mt Hope that is close to the hearts of the RBR and GIVIT after a donation early this year of an air-conditioned “school house” for a local family whose home-schooled children needed a dedicated space to study. Rally members and GIVIT worked together to convert a shipping container to a suitable space that the children now adore. The fully-furnished “school house’’ was transported from Queensland to the Mt Hope site by the RBR and GIVIT.

Other items provided by the RBR and GIVIT to members of the local community include toys and $500 worth of fuel vouchers to the Cobar Mobile Children’s Service that offers early education play-based support to isolated children. GIVIT has actively supported the CWA branches in the area, providing several whitegoods including two fridges, a washing machine and aircon unit for local  families affected by the drought.

Dubbed “the Road Boss” for fearlessly taking participants where most rally organisers wouldn’t dare go, founder and organiser Jamie Lawson said the rally would travel across some of the most challenging backroads across outback NSW and Queensland to the Sunshine Coast.

The cars have just started coming into town as I type this... They are eating at the White Cliffs Sporting Club and camping on the oval outside the club...

 

Thanks, we had a drifferent day with no power...

 

Have Fun..

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 9th July 2019

Not a good day in town and tomorrow we have no power from 8am to 4pm so life be quite tomorrow. After they turn the power off we will have a loss of phone cell about three hours later. So my guess is now power and no phone tomorrow...

Will get the gas BBQ out for lunch...

Worked today in the kitchen and tomorrow Carol and I are going to have a big cleanup to make room for sanding and then we paint...

Having a meal out tonight with friends at the White Cliffs Pub...

 

I just had a brown out so I turn things off here...

 

Tomorrow another day...

 

Have Fun all...

The weather man said up to 10mm of rain over the weekend, yep you guessed it right, nothing not a drop of rain. We did have a light fog in town this morning but no rain.. The damp air played up with one of the doors to the underground it did swell up and was really hard to open...


So I took the door off and planned off around 5mm off the back of the door...


All back together and it is perfect, to tell the truth I hate working on door.. This is the inside 23c on the other side last night it was 8c... A normal door but they twist in winter... All fixed now...


In the new kitchen we are getting there day by day... Tomorrow it is more sanding and more work on the rock wall.


Outside it does look like rain but no rain maybe later in the day... The Proton needs a new battery I look in Broken Hill for a new one...


Looking above the underground home..


Above the Underground home to the East made a good picture today... No blue sky to be seen today with a top of 17c...

Thanks for the comments on the Sunset, on three dots yesterday... Three Dots now has over a 100 readers a week and some visit 4 or 5 times a week... 38861 hits on the counter as of late afternoon...

This is the area I have worked in all day, you have to remember this room started life as a cool room in Hay NSW and was sold at auction...

 


Why use MDF board, "I had it" yes we had seven sheets 2400x1200 (or 8ft x 4ft) so we used it...

 


Part of today's work a wood frame that will be filled with White Cliffs Rock I start on the bit tomorrow a rock wall on the side of the timber frame, why we need heading and will have a wood heater on this side...

 


It will take a lot of paint and I hope to be painting this time next week...

Monday 1st July 2019

I have had a noise in the front of the car, today was taken up looking for the problem, I found it and sent pictures to people that can help... This took me all day...

Had a lot of question about the lighting I put on Three Dots last night...


You seen this picture last night on Three Dots....

A number want to know how we are going to get free lighting.... Well it sort of free you put a solar cell on the roof of the kitchen. The solar cell charges a battery a 12 volt battery we then run the 12 volt inside to the LED lighting for use at night...

The power from the sun cost nothing at all, it is in no way hooked to the mains power the cost is the solar cell and a battery... they last around six years...

Any more questions just email me...

Have fun hope tomorrow is a better day...

 

 

 

 

Sunday 30th June 2019

Well if you are in business in Australia today was the end of the year and you be at work doing a stock take...


Down the hill from home I walked across from home to get the "Pot Plant" the other day and notice a heap of rubbish in the rock area I went for a walk today and found a heap of junk. This old track is no longer used by anyone. I go for a walk over winter and do a bit of a clean up...


This is the far bottom of our driveway heading into town...


A picture in error today, I was waving the camera around to get rid of fly's and took a picture, note the fly's they are bad up here right now... Bet I could not do that again no matter how hard I tried...


I used the last 1/4 bag of the "Ardit floor leveller" today and did a second coat in the kitchen. No matter how it looks it feels like glass it is so smooth all I need now is another ten bags to finish the job... Had one bag only as a test you got to give it a 10 out 10...


LED Lights we have a plan for the new hallway and kitchen these are 12 volt LED Lights... On the car I have a Solar Cell that tops up a 12 volt battery in the car... We use it to power the caravan say December to May each year the plan is to remove it from the car May to November and set up to power lighting in the hallway and kitchen.. Free lighting... The pen in the picture is there to show the size of each light we have 20 lights right now to set up...

 

A bit of a mix tonight, but good fun...

 

Hello Joi and Peter in Melbourne...

 

Have fun....

 

 

 

 

Saturday 29th June 2019

What a shocking day it was good then bad then a shocker... We went out to coffee and it was ok weather we had a good time at the shop and a big crew around the table...


Then on the return trip out the road the wind came up very strong.


You could see the weather turning bad.


By the time I got home we had ourself a big dust storm and it never stop heading to the South East..

It cleared up at home but a lot of dust to the East..


Then tonight at Sunset the dust was blocking the Sun out (I tried for 50yrs to get a picture like this.) It could be Mars but it is our sun 30min's a ago...


It just got better..


With a lot of zoom on the camera a outback Sunset tonight, you could not take a picture like this without the dust. The sun would cook the inside of your camera...

All good here a shocking day, did nothing but had fun...

 

Tomorrow another day...

 

 

 

 

Friday 28th June 2019

I worked on the kitchen floor, "Ardit Floor Leveller" we got one bag to try in Broken Hill and it did a good job this is the first time I have used leveller...


Not all of it but some of the cement in the new kitchen was pitted really bad, I was told to use floor leveller so I gave it a go... Before

The same bit of cement after one coat it sets like a Jelly about 3mm thick. After


Here is another bit I did today.. As for using it I am wearing an "L" plate... So I need to buy a lot more Ardit like the rest of the house we paint the floor and add a gloss...

I have about 1/4 of a bag left so I give this a second coat..

 

My sister Muffy been working on her garden in Albury, daughter Kylie sent me some pictures....


A few years back I attacked this with a axe, this year it is looking great...


It's sure better than any garden in White Cliffs... Well Done...

Tomorrow we have coffee at Red Earth and tomorrow night we are going to a 50th Birthday Party...

Coffee at the Pub on Sunday...

Thursday 27th June 2019

A big day driving Broken Hill to White Cliffs it was the same 300km's but seem to go on forever today, car good used 12.5 lt's per 100/km's not bad for a big motor 3500 cc ...

Tonight we are back home in White Cliffs in the cave...


As I said the road went of for ever today... We had breakfast at Little Topar 75km's East of Broken Hill...


The creek 30km's South of White Cliffs, we are on the new bridge that is the old bridge in the picture. I like that picture I have to talk to the Art Department it would make a nice Art Painting...


The same creek but looking the other way... No water but I have seen this creek running over the top of the old bridge...

 

Bernie
Gee Rex.  Good detective work Inspector Rex with that high power lens on your surveillance camera for you have found your big, missing flower pot. Bill and Ben the flower pot men can be very mischievous.  One could imagine these two villains are probably the same ones erecting those mysterious  stone mounds around White Cliffs do you think.


From Bernie you have to read the picture... All just good fun HaHaHa...

 

Good to be home it is nice and warm sleeping underground...

A big hello to Scott in Wangaratta...

Tuesday 25th June 2019

We had a very cold night in White Cliffs and a cold morning, so I was a bit late getting outside to work... the first job was walking around the underground filling any cracks in the wall of the house with white Gap Filler... Not many this time it winter so you do not get many... I check out the house every three months..


Then a really big job I got out the round up and sprayed the weeds around the house, gee there is a lot...


I took this picture looking at Turley Hill White Cliffs and love the sky color almost all homes on Turley Hill are Underground as we are...


Tonight's sunset and as you can see a number of trucks coming in town from down South a very tame sunset tonight but still a nice color...

Then I had a really big problem with my phone it had an update and it stopped working (an update is to make things better) what a stuff up... The problem is what they call the Phone Launcher it took four hours to sort out this afternoon... Anyway it is now working (I hope)...

Tomorrow we are off to Broken Hill and back home Thursday (medical trip) no trailer this trip, stay one night then come home...

Have fun all, and a big hello to Muffy my sister in Albury... (kylie)

 

Tomorrow from Broken Hill..

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 24th June 2019

We got up and the first gob (try job) today was the car, I did a service on the car this morning.


Fitted a new oil filter and new oil the morning. Draining the oil easy but the oil filter under a plastic cover and not easy to get at, you need to remove the plastic under pan to get at the oil filter. The end story is the job is all done, White Cliffs style...


This poor tree had a really bad time Jacaranda Tree the Kangaroos ave eaten it the Goats got at it the Emu got at it so I removed the wire guard it was not working so I now work on a better version..


Then it was back working in the New Kitchen, time to fit some pipes under the sink to the outside...
Must say it a job I hate and that is hooking up pipes here in White Cliffs You do a job then find you need one bit so I start now...

Something took a prices off my big finger today just not sure how I did it, bit sore tonight...

Got a parcel from "eBay" today 20 of LED lights to use in the new kitchen (they are 12 volt lights) the plan is to take the 80 watt solar cell off the car and setup outside the house, charge a 12 volt battery and run the lights from Solar power in the new hall way and the new kitchen...

Well that's it you all have fun....

And hello to Vicki here in White Cliffs hope you are feeling better...

 

 

 

 

Sunday 23rd June 2019

A cold day 12c top at 4pm most of today it was around 9 to 10c and to tell the truth we sat outside in the sun at the back of the "White Cliffs hotel"... Yes we are drinking a free bottle of water before lunch.. The pub opens at 12 midday.

Yes we sat around a wooden cable reel at the back of the pub talking and having a great time with local people it was a fun day.

We went at 10am for coffee and stayed for lunch a great meal... Took the picture with my camera phone, it's not bad but the picture a bit on the small side... we ended up with a good size group around the reel...

We went down late afternoon and recovered the flower pot it is now back at home... And it is not broken I need to plant some flowers in the pots... Going into Broken Hill on Wednesday I add flowers to my list...

When the sun started to go down tonight the super cold wind came in from the South West, gee it was a cold wind...

We had a no work day but I get back into it in the morning, they are talking about rain at the end of the week here in White Cliffs...

Met some nice people today, it was good...

 

Have fun... Hello to Paul and Gail...

Friday 21st June 2019

Well it is Friday Night and the weekend is here, had a busy week worked most day... No more Diet Coke at the pub as I was the only buyer of Diet drinks and the date on the drinks runs out end of June, they gave me the last three boxes for Free today.. Thanks people they will not go to waste..


From Bernie in Howlong, I never put emails on 3dots but I had to put this one...

I'm very impressed with your recent extensions and renovations to your Smith's Hill dugout, Rexie. Was the building [as in this photo] one of your earlier architectural achievements?

Ar Bernie we love it...

 

Back in the kitchen today ran a power line from the wall to the stand alone bench and draws that will make up the bench in the middle of the room...


Still have a long way to go but I hope to stay here to the finish...


Right on the side of our driveway here at White Cliffs and many other places around town... The "Board of works" are up to something.. I asked around a new Freeway to Queensland, a V8 Supercar track around the hill.. I think I have an answer about three years ago the town was given $5,000,000 for a new water system around White Cliffs, nothing happen. Well maybe it just got underway a new filter system, new pipes the lot... no-one is saying a word but that's my guess...

Well that's Friday and Coffee tomorrow...

You all have fun, we are doing a trip into Broken Hill next Wednesday ...

 

Thanks all, and Hello to Ian and Pauline near Sydney...

Did a bit more on the kitchen today, cut a 2.5m grove in the cement floor for power... and I must say that is not easy and it is a dusty, dirty job.


What it for, we have a kitchen along the front wall and we have an island bench for the kitchen... I want power at the Island Bench so I had to cut a grove from the side wall to the Island Bench the power will come up under the bench. The hook up will be done by a electrical worker..

Tuesday 18th June 2019

What did we do today, the first thing I did was put a jumper on it was only 16c here in White Cliffs very cold wind from the South West...

I worked in the new hallway today building the new laundry and new linen room...


From the right side you see the back door of the Underground Home the small room is the new Linen Room and the room next to that, on left side of the picture is the new laundry it will have a wash tub and a washing machine plus a small bench area.


The plan today was to finish off the roof area on top of the house but a strong and very cold wind told me to work inside... What I need now is Gyprock about 15 sheets of it to complete the hallway...

Note there will a 620mm wide door on the Linen Room, on the Laundry area will have a pull down blind... We seen this on House Rules (tv) and it suits us...

After that I went and helped a local lady with her new phone... Between us we got it going gee it's all so hard these day... We need a Scott in town...

Seen a Kangaroo jumping around today the first one in weeks...

 

Had a number of people ask about the White House in Yesterdays "Three Dots" that is a really nice "Underground Home" The best in town and the best in Australia... Is it all White, well most of it is White but that is not the reason it is call White House... The people who own it are Mr and Mrs White...

I took a lot of pictures myself and made the White's a webpage... CLICK HERE

Have a look at our page on the Website....

 

That's it today, you all have fun...

 

Hello to Doug in Queensland hope your feeling better....

 

 

 

 

Monday 17th June 2019

It was up early and working in the new hallway but that is about to come to a stop we are almost out or material required to finish the job... So I make a list and move onto the next job...


I got up on the roof to work out a plan to seal the roof of the hallway, tonight I have a plan and just hope it will work..


Here the bit I need to work on, as I said we have a plan...


The hallway goes in under the veranda this is where we collect most of our rain water 75 sqM (1mm of rain on 75 sqM will add 75 lt's to the water tank below... We are adding another 20 sqM with the new section...


Sunset at home looking West, that a stupid the sun always sets in the West... Nice sunset but no rain not a drop today...

Have a look at this on the ABC Website, it is about the White Underground home in White Cliffs and is the best underground home in Australia... They are still working on the home after 12yr's of work..

CLICK HERE...

 

They are friends of ours and I know hour much work it would have been...

That's Monday, Hello Troy and Kylie in Thurgoona.

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday 16th June 2019

We stayed home today and did a bit more on the Hallway to the new kitchen, I spent around 7 hr's on the hallway and feel a bit sore tonight...


If I could see light I filled it in, still a lot more to go but made a big start today...


What would we do without glue I sand it back when it is hard then paint...

. . That the hall late today anywhere you see light is still to be done, when we see no light the job is done...


They are going to rebuild the old White Cliffs power station, this was the first power station in the World. When the Solar cell was invented the station closed... They it's part of Australia and years ago it was power for White Cliffs...


This where the water came from for the Solar Power Station...


Just went outside and had a look to the South, the sky looks a bit dark but we have had no rain today...

Don't know who it was but a Jet took off from the White Cliffs Airport around midday wow it was really fast it went out of sight in about 5sec...

Peter a White Cliffs local is now reading Three Dot's welcome...

 

You all have a great week...

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday 15th June 2019

When out for Coffee at Red Earth this morning and all good, guess who dropped a plate Opp's sorry Graham I buy you a tube of glue when in Broken Hill in a week or so...


Taken outside our Underground Home at about 10am that a big bird not sure what it is a Hawk at a guess...


The White Cliffs Golf Links. One day I try a round they play here on a Wednesday and on a Sunday....


Golf Links (by the way the "S" driveway up the hill is ours...


Golf Links, a Tee and as I said Wednesday or Sunday...


A lone tree left on the Hill just out of town, a hundred or so fell in the drought over the last nine years...


Well I got rid of all the weeds (that took three days) a bit of trim to be added and a wash down and it's ready to paint outside the Underground, that be the backdoor...


I had two people talk to me about Tyres in the last 48hr's I run Goodride SU318H/T 16" wheel ... Why they cheap and they are hard in the side walls. The rocks cut the side walls up quite bad. A number of people are using these in town.. I got mine at Tyre Power $150.00... Ian and Bert hope this answer's you question...

 

 

That's it today a bit of a mix hello Sue n David you all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Friday 14th June 2019

I can say very little about today we had a free lunch at the White Cliffs Sporting Club and met with people from the NSW Lands Office and a group who have claimed "Land Rights" in White Cliffs.

..

That's all I say it was a meeting that missed the point the locals sat around two tables if they hold another meeting I stay at home...

I am still cleaning up outside our home I found a $1.50 today on the ground so I put it in a money box that I say for next Christmas Holiday.. By the way we are looking at leaving December 1st...


If there no wind tomorrow I get out the weed killer and give that rubbish weed a spray... The outback of Australia is green but still no Wildlife to be seen...

That Friday, and how it worked out, hope we have a better weekend...

 

 

 

 

Thursday 13th June 2019

A very mixed up day, the loss of power was a total non event, the power never went off not sure why it never happen but we had power all day...

If I had to guess we had 10mm of rain at home last night and that was a great, our water is full to the top of the tank 1000lt's in the tank... I guess that was the reason the power line works never happen...

The plan was to go out side a weed outside the back door and we stuck to that plan this morning...


I got a heap of the rubbish weed growing I never seen it before this year...


I started cleaning the weed away today just outside the back door as you can see I used a shovel and that took four hours..


I have this very old water tank it was here when we came in 1995 but it has a hole in the bottom, can anyone help on how to repair the tank, love your comments.

...
As you can see the hole is about 3" (75mm) across there are other rust marks but I can clean them up with a wire brush... I have a place to put the tank it is 3ft Sq.. just over a 1000lt's (I think)... I like some help on the one.


Tonight outside and way before Sunset, almost a green in the cloud.

 

Tomorrow we are going out to a free lunch at the Sporting Club put on for the town by the state.. As we all know there no such thing as a free lunch...

 

Well that was today you all have fun...

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 12th June 2019

The big question is will it rain tonight the Weather Man is saying 1-5mm and 90% well it will have to happen tonight because nothing happen today... More on that later...

The Royal Flying Doctor Service came in over home around 4pm today I just happen to there with the camera at the time...


Coming in for a landing at White Cliffs, look at the sky will it rain sure looks like it...

Then it was time to get ready for tomorrow "No Power" all day from 8am to 4pm... Been told it maybe longer..


The BBQ has been cleaned up ready for tomorrow "No Power Day" the gas is hooked up and ready for action..


That's a bucket 70% full and the plan is let it freeze tonight and hope it will stay cold till the power comes back on.. Most of the food is in the frig...

I know from the passed we will have no phone system after 10am up at the phone tower it has a backup battery that last around three hours..

Three Dots may happen tomorrow then again it may not... It should happen I think...

 

You all have fun tomorrow, it looks like we will...

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 11th June 2019

We had a really good night out with friends last night sitting around a fire outside in the yard, thank you people...

I returned our big 45kg LP Gas Bottle the reason being we have installed a electric hot water system and we no longer use LP Gas at the house on the small 9kg LP Gas on the BBQ...

Talking about BBQ we have been giving the BBQ here a really big cleanup, on Thursday 13th we have no power all day from 8am to 4pm they are working on the power line somewhere...

I have the solar cell on the car we use when we free camp in the caravan I can plug into that for lighting and we can cook on the BBQ...


I went outside with the camera mid afternoon and seen a half moon and took this happy snap. At apogee — the farthest away it gets — the moon is 405,696 km from Earth. On average, the distance from Earth to the moon is about 384,400 km. According to NASA, 

Well that a long way for a $300 camera it did a good job...


The ground red for some reason it's getting really red this year...

Now a really big question will it rain tomorrow they say it will 1 to 5mm 90% that be nice but we need to wait and see.

As for today it was 27c here outside in the shade, the underground home sitting at 23c inside and the normal for a underground home...

That's it today you all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Monday 10th June 2019

A new week, we did a lot of work today it all started with a leaking pipe in the bathroom that was an easy fix with a screw driver.

Next was the mat in the lounge it was showing a bit of dirt and that was red dirt, so we took it out and used a pressure washer to clean it...


It did a great job we tossed the mat over the trailer....


I give the mat another wash tomorrow, but the pressure washer did a great job..


As you can see it was 26c in the shade today and they are saying rain on Wednesday...


The rest of the day I put up a roof on the new hallway to the kitchen (That's the next job.)... That my tool room at the far end just need to buy a door...


From the hallway the door into the new kitchen... I clean it up then paint it... Still have lots of small stuff to do in the hallway...


Need to fill in all the gaps in the hallway, that will take a few day and we will start that in the morning...


I stuffed another 4" grinder today, I had one go bang in October last year so over Christmas I got a new one, another old one went up in a flash of flame and smoke today... So I unpacked the new one...


Sunset last night, not bad then I turned around...


This is looking East away from the sunset, not a bad picture... (but no rain)...

We are going out for a meal tonight so I am doing Three Dots early... Looking forward to tonight they are nice people...

 

Tomorrow I may give that mat a second wash before I bring it back inside...

You all have fun this week...

 

 

 

 

Sunday 9th June 2019

We went to the White Cliffs Hotel this morning for Coffee and Breakfast and it was quite cold at the time then the wind turn from the North West, that was a bit warmer.. But very little sunlight today...

Later in the day I took the camera and went for a walk around our land above the Underground Home...


I walked around looking for plant life I do this around once a year... All pictures are wild plants and nothing we planted...


A White Cedar pops up I wish they grow away from the home...


This is the leaf from a full size White Cedar Tree...


What sort of tree, note the bottom right seed pods, in summer they go bang like a shotgun and spray seeds up to 2m away...


There maybe another name but I am told Afghan Hops...


Why is the outback so green, it covered in this weed and the wildlife do not seem to eat it?....


A lot of the Salt Brush trees are getting new shoots...


I planted this tree here 24yr's ago, it was about 6" high and right where our air-shaft so we mover it maybe 10ft and it is still growing...


While up top I seen this heap maybe 500m away so Zoom up the camera, yep junk metal junk but say quite old junk.


How the sky looked most of the day but no rain....


I am putting a roof on the hallway, still have a long way to go.... This is over the storeroom, you always need a backup in White Cliffs... What I mean on friday night we had a Microwave go bang in a big way we had a backup one in the storeroom and installed it in the kitchen...

Hope the wind drops tomorrow morning so I can get some work done on the roof...

You all have fun...

 

Tomorrow another day....

Thanks to Wombat Gully Photography for this stunning  drone photo taken last weekend, 3 July 2019 of the tail end ( Mitta River end, north west of Tallangatta) as Lake Hume near Albury / Wodonga slowly rises from 13% one month ago to 15% as above date. The rising water over the flats is not due to rain, but a release from Lake Dartmouth which is  now holding 64% capacity. Sent to Three Dots by Bernie in Howlong...

Head on into the sun on the way home, 100km's from Wilcannia to White Cliffs we travelled due North...


About 40km's South of White Cliffs... A narrow bridge...

I had a trailer load full of timber and cement sheet for the new kitchen area, I get back into that on Friday morning.

Tomorrow I have a diabetes eye check with the Flying Doctor Service...

 

Good trip, it only had one down side, went to the shop and got some battery's that we need at home, I left the bag on the trailer and lost the lot... My fault, I was packing food in the back of the car and did not look back... What do they say "That's Life"

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 4th June 2019

Broken Hill is an inland mining city in the far west of outback New South Wales, Australia. It is near the border with South Australia on the crossing of the Barrier Highway (A32) and the Silver City Highway (B79), in the Barrier Range. It is 315 m (1,033 ft) above sea level, with a hot desert climate, and an average rainfall of 235 mm (9 in). The closest major city is Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, which is more than 500 km (311 mi) to the southwest and linked via route A32.

The town is prominent in Australia's mining and economic history after the discovery of silver ore led to the opening of various mines, thus establishing Broken Hill's recognition as a prosperous mining town well into the 1990s. Despite experiencing a slowing economic situation into the late 1990s and 2000s, Broken Hill itself was listed on the National Heritage List in 2015 and remains Australia's longest running mining town.


By Glen Parker, Broken Hill as Art.

 

Broken Hill has been referred to as "The Silver City", and less commonly as the "Oasis of the West", and the "Capital of the Outback". Although over 1,100 km (680 mi) west of Sydney and surrounded by semi-desert, the town has prominent park and garden displays and offers a number of attractions, such as the Living Desert Sculptures. The town has a high potential for solar power, given its extensive daylight hours of sunshine. The Broken Hill Solar Plant, which was completed in 2015, is one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.


Another Broken in Art..

Unlike the rest of New South Wales, Broken Hill (and the surrounding region) observes Australian Central Standard Time (UTC+9:30), the same time zone used in South Australia and the Northern Territory. This is because at the time the Australian dominions adopted standard time, Broken Hill's only direct rail link was with Adelaide, not Sydney. Similarly, Broken Hill is regarded as part of South Australia for the purposes of postal parcels rates, and telephone charges. Broken Hill also used to be a break of gauge station where the state railway systems of South Australia and New South Wales met.


Broken Hill in Art

Back home tomorrow after the car gets checked for rego tomorrow morning, then pickup our food order then home to White Cliffs..

Have Fun...

June already and in six months as of today we hit the road...


That driveway of ours in White Cliffs... I went down and back up with a rake in hand and moved off all the loose rocks... The wildlife flicks the rock onto the drive way and it take three or four hours to clean. This year we have no wildlife and it took 45min's to clean...

 

Picture below are all from Bill in Queensland...


Bill got really early for a walk along the beach area, and sent Three Dots some pictures..


All the foot prints are wiped in the morning by grader making the beach really nice and clean looking especially in front of surf club areas.


A bit of light that's a good picture Bill.. Looks like a nice day for a Queensland beach walk...

Going to Broken Hill on Monday morning, car rego time. I take the trailer with me and get some timber..


I put the caravan on blocks so I do some work under the van this year.

 

Have fun this weekend, coffee in the morning then I better clean the car...

 

You all have fun...
