 I guess I thought their messages to be more about their own personal beliefs about how things should be, rather than them trying to present actual facts. Just like when people write messages like "we are all equal". In a perfect world maybe, but that´s not the reality. But I would also read a statement like that to mean that it´s more an expression of personal beliefs than anything else.

Too bad about the situation in outbacks of Australia; Kerry! :-*


I don't know why, but I had a somewhat strange over-reaction to that photo. I absolutely agree with what you've said - it is all about one's personal beliefs. I'm quite mystified as to why I reacted as I did.   ???  Probably just my GOM Syndrome manifesting itself again. Seems to be happening to me more and more often these days. (GOM Syndrome = Grumpy Old Man Syndrome)    :-\   ;)   :)

tree change – a relocation from the city to a rural area for a lifestyle change

Thanks Brian!

We have that here too, (at least we used to in the 70s), but under a different name: Green wave.

Apologies for my tardy response, Sonja. Looks like Brian's already responded. Cheers, Brian.  :)

No problem, Kerry.  You can't expect an immediate answer from someone who sleeps when your're up, are up when you're asleep, goes swimming in the sea while you're freezing to death, and celebrates christmas and new year in the middle of the summer!!!    ;D

Cause something about that truck and landscape sure reminded me of Jack and Ennis and they surely had closets
