    Just want to take a quick moment and send out some Thoughts and Prayers to our brothers and sisters in S.E. Australia !! They have a wildfire going on and it has already claimed the lives of 84 people at last count -more expected, homes , vehicles , business's. This is the worst fire in history for this area.

    Thankyou very much guys, your concern is very much appreciated. Bit of a wild time down here, what with massive floods up north and those terrible fires down in the south east. I see the wild fires toll has reached 128, my heart goes out to the families.

    We are located pretty well half way up the east coast of Oz, with us not being part of either event. We feel very lucky and are keeping in touch with my family who live down south in the area that has been devastated by these fires.
    Thanks again for your support.
    T.

    Our thoughts are with you.

    The photos on the news sites and videos on the tv stations are unbelievable. Hope the weather cooperates so your fire department can start to tame it.

    Thank's for your concern R.Lewis, much appreciated. Yes, two young men, who both started different fires have been arrested, with one of them saying " lock me away, I can't promise I wont do it again". One very sick individual, but as our Prime Minister Kevin Rudd called such an act, "mass murder", which it most certainly is in my opinion.
