Tuesday 20th October 2020

Great day in White Cliffs 27c today 81f I have been ask what is the temperature in "F" ... We are packing the caravan (very old caravan) ready to go away next week...

 

From Di and Graham who are in Queensland heading North:

..
Pictures taken "Home Hill" Queensland..

Home Hill lies approximately 98 kilometers (61 mi) south of Townsville and 1,269 kilometers (789 mi) north of the state capital Brisbane on the Bruce Highway. It is a part of the Burdekin Region which includes the neighboring town of Ayr. Both towns are governed by the Burdekin Shire Council.

The Burdekin River forms the locality's north-western boundary. The urban area is situated centrally within the locality surrounded by crop farming. The Bruce Highway passes through the town from the south-east to the north-west crossing the river via the Burdekin Bridge to Ayr. The North Coast railway line runs immediately parallel and south of the highway with the Home Hill railway station located in the town center; it too crosses the river on the Burdekin Bridge. To the west of the town is Gardiner's Lagoon. Despite its name, the land in the locality is very flat. (from Google)..

 


Home Hill... It looks like a fun place to visit...

..

Home Hill, thanks for the pictures Di and Graham, have a safe trip North....

 

 

And from Ian and Pauline in Ardrossan in South Australia:

Ardrossan is a town in the Australian state of South Australia located on the east coast of the Yorke Peninsula, about 150 kilometers by road from the Adelaide city center, It is notable for its deepwater shipping port and its towering coastal cliffs of red clay. Wikipedia

Ardrossan South Australia Ian and Pauline went shopping there today and were happy with what they seen...

 

White Cliffs New South Wales:

Still have a lot to do before we go away next week, it be back to Broken Hill to see the eye doctor then we will head South for Christmas ... It be a very slow trip...

You all have fun.... We will...

 

 

 

Monday 19th October 2020

Nice day here in White Cliffs 28c blue sky and almost no wind, just Fly's

Pictures below from Ian and Pauline at Black Point South Australia, Looks like a really nice place to visit in South Australia and looking at the homes it is going ahead...


Some shacks for sale here at Black Point, the white building $1 million+...


What a view it be hard waking up to this every day....


Picture of the car GPS system Thanks Ian...

Another nice looking home just need to add a nice green lawn...


Seaweed and a heap of it (now what can we use it for) just thinking...

Ian and Pauline thanks for the pictures, but what can we do with all that seaweed...

From White Cliffs, Nurse Belinda got a new car a top of the range Toyota Land Cruiser, Well done "B" love it.. I fitted a pad bolt to the back door here at home... We are starting to pack the caravan and head off Monday next week for six month's staying in small towns and keeping away from the big city's....

You all have fun this week...

 

 

 

Sunday 18th October 2020

Worked on the car all afternoon getting ready for the summer road trip this summer...


Note the new tyres on the front of the Hyundai Terracan, on the roof at the back a new UHF radio for safe travel on the roads... Checked out the Solar Cell on the roof all working ...



Then it out to see friends Rita and Frank, you sure been building new sheds Frank .. Well done...


Frank and Rita are growing vegetables why one tank inside another that's to keep the Kangaroos and Emu out...


It may look like an out house but it is a long way from that... It is going to be a set of stairs down into there underground Opal mine 30ft down....

They said 90% 10 to 20mm of rain we got nothing not a drop... The rain gauge is still reading zero... For the weather man "Well Done" ....

Frank and Rita are good friends, we are planning a dinner together on Friday night next...

You all have fun this week, hope we do a better job than the weather man...

 

 

 

 

Saturday 17th October 2020

Ian and Pauline are in South Australia at Black Point and sent me some pictures for "Three Dots" today great stuff..


Black Point South Australia, that's a really big jetty..



Close up of the jetty Black Point area..


Nice beach for a walk just goes for miles...


Don't think this place will last long. Look at the townhouses behind...


Nice roads in the area to the boat ramp you see in the picture...


Boat ramp is not free $6 a day but looking at the area it is worth it...


Like a new town house with a really nice view...


Alongside, the one on the beach will probably disappear in the next big storm. I think it's been condemned and awaiting removal. Climate change and higher waters!!!

Thanks Ian for the pictures Black Point, York Peninsula South Australia... Just below Ardrossan...

 

 

 

From Bernie in Howlong NSW:

Thanks to Larry Snow for this helpful tip which comes from Dr. Patrick Teefy, Cardiology Head at the Nuclear Medicine Institute University Hospital, London Ontario

I hope everyone can send this on as it is really important for everyone to know!

1. Let's say it's 7:25 pm and you're going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

2. You're really tired, upset and frustrated.

3. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw.

You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.

4. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.

5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.

A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it to regain a normal rhythm.

In this way, heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.

9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!

10. A cardiologist says: "If everyone who gets this email & kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life.

11. Rather than sending jokes, please ....... contribute by forwarding this email which can save a person's life....

12. If this message comes around to you ..... more than once..... please don't get irritated..... U need to be happy that you have many friends who care about you & you are being reminded of how to tackle.... Heart attacks.... when you are alone.

 

That's our day Saturday more tomorrow...

You all have fun....

 

 

 

Friday 16th October 2020

The master web page on the web site is a1onsite.com.au and it has just past "one million" hits after many years it has been many things over the years.

Thursday 15th October 2020

Today's "Three Dot" started last night at the "Book Launch" of a new book on White Cliffs our home town in North West New South Wales... We went along and it is a first class book...


Otto (left) is the person who did the picture and the writer of the new book and he did a great job, Dick (right) is selling the book in his Opal shop here in White Cliffs..


The book selling $30.00 is on sale and Otto signs our copy of the book last night at the General Store... Otto has written a number of books on White Cliffs over the years...


I could hear this at our place almost 2km's away so I went for a drive you put rocks in the front and out comes small stone out the bottom... We are looking at the back of the unit...


Looking the other way over town from Turleys Hill (this hill is full of Opal mines you can walk under the hill) ...


How this the road gang are in town and today they fix the road around Smith's Hill and the same road is to our place how good is that.. The car likes the road now, next rain I hope people keep off the road...

I was back painting inside the caravan today just doing a clean up as well, the very old caravan is looking really good inside as for outside I give it a wash and call it quits for this year...

Asked about the old caravan and yes it has a toilet and shower and is fully self contained with tanks under the van.. We have used part from a 2010 caravan in the old van...

I also been asked about the underground home we live in, yes we live 28ft underground I try find you some pictures over the next day or so...

You all have fun, tomorrow Friday...

 

 

 

Wednesday 14th October 2020

Sprayed the last of the weeds today so all weeds have been sprayed at this time, about time I see how they go just hope they all fall over...


What are they the holes in the ground (I tossed the keys down for size) my guess a spider we have about 20 holes in the one area well away from the house... Near the rain gauge... the hole in the center are very small maybe only 5mm... Comments welcome... rexdun@outlook.com ...


Dick a good friend tossed some more rock up our drive way over the last few day, when it rains it sinks into the ground and makes for a nice driveway...


On the left side our cedar trees are really growing well this year...


Up on top of our underground home there are a few big rocks I have to go up and pull them back from the edge. If some of the big once's fall they roll for quite a way and may hit a car or the caravan.. (no not the caravan)... The rocks are about 20ft up the hill..

Local Otto, a good friend has a book launch at the General Store I think part of his book is about White Cliffs...

 

You all have fun fun this week...

From Ian n Pauline in South Australia... Brinkworth


Looks like a neat caravan park Brinkworth South Australia...


The van looking good Ian I always like that caravan...


Just outside the caravan park at Brinkworth..


Pauline cooking in the camp kitchen it is a neat park...


Looking the other way in the local camp kitchen...

 

Brinkworth was a junction on the Gladstone railway line from Adelaide to Gladstone in the north. The other line from Brinkworth went through Snow town to Kadina and Wallaroo. Both were originally built as narrow gauge 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in). These lines were converted to broad gauge 1,600 mm (5 ft 3 in) in 1927 but are now closed.[3]

Governance
Brinkworth is in the local government area of Wakefield Regional Council, the state electoral district of From and the federal division of Grey.

Thanks Ian and Pauline for the pictures, that a new and tidy place to stay and not far to Adelaide... Just had a look on Wikicamp $12.00 power and water you can only stay 3 nights at a time... rating is 4.9 out 5 that's as good as it gets... Thank you...
