Tough frog
Five nights ago I stepped out of the van and felt something squishy under my foot. I started cussing; how could something like that be up on the step leading into the van ? I lifted my foot and there was this flattened green thing, something akin to one of ...

Water Pressure
In my van I have a pressure / flow rate regulator valve of the brass variety and the pressure, or should I say the flow rate inside the van has always been very poor, ie. wait for ages to fill a bottle. I had a look on the net for any mention of this proble...

Thornborough, Kingsborough and Mt. Mulligan
On Sunday the 6th I did a day trip to these three localities, localities because most of what was once there is now gone. My main interest was Thornborough, because my paternal great grand mother, Emily DAVIS (nee CHAPPEL) is buried there. Thornborough Ceme...

What to do with those horses
Well, we can't keep them in the back yard, hang on, I know, we will put them out in the paddock. And there they stayed. No visits and the only food was what they could find, and apparently no running water. This is in a paddock opposite the Silver Wattle ca...

At the Silver Wattle Caravan Park
I arrived back at the Silver Wattle caravan park on the 29th September, 2015, when I couldn't get a spot in the free site in Emerald at two o'clock in the afternoon. It was 8pm when I arrived and although I was apprehensive about the timing, I was assured b...

Living Edge Caravan
Back in February I bought a new Living Edge caravan from Kratzmann caravans at Burpengary. I would suggest that people don't buy Living Edge and don't buy from Kratzmann. I have been having an ongoing problem with the water pump, which I have isolated to th...

Chillagoe
On Tuesday the 8th September I made a day trip to Chillagoe, some 98km to the west of Dimbulah. The road as far as Almaden is all bitumen. Between Almaden and Chillagoe there are four sections of gravel, the longest being 6km. Between Chillagoe and Almaden ...

Story
Tagline
Fell in love once, only once, when I lived in New Farm
Introduction
A childhood of mango trees,
knee high floods and
pushbikes without helmets in Cairns

Retired and look for dead people in my spare time.

Why look for dead people ?
They are usually easier to find; they tend not to move around and the tree is growing.
