What they haven't explained and probably don't want to explain, is this basically relates back to the Blue Berry growers in the Coffs area.  The blue berries have really taken off over the past several years with a lot of farms that were previously bananas or grazing are going under berries.  The limits and licenses they are referring to is the difference between domestic and agricultural.  When you have a dam, bore or pump for domestic use but in turn are using that for agricultural ie growing Blue Berries, that is where you run foul of the Authorities.  Instead of getting the right Water license and paying the right levy, using domestic water for agricultural purposes is the big problem.  If the growers had the right licenses and water usage, there is no problem.  At present it just gives more ammo to those opposing the berry growers.
Hmmm,

How's the serenity....

Gotta love caravan parks, there's nothing quite like the low hum of 100 airconditioners to drown out the cacophony of blaring tv's as you're trying to enjoy the cool evening breeze with a relaxing ale 😤

I reckon the caravan park is in cahoots with the auto mob. There's our ranger with fire damage, a pajero with a fuel leak, a mazda with no brake pads, a rodeo with a blown diff, a 200 that needs tyres, a navara with a dodgy gearbox, and we're all twiddling our thumbs in the caravan park at $50 per night waiting for parts to arrive. Today marks 3 weeks since we arrived. Being a mine town, you could completely rebuild a 70 series or hilux in a day, but enything else needs parts to be sent from Cairns.

Feel your pain mate. We spent two weeks stuck in Birdsville waiting for parts in July. Must be time for another fishing trip.

Maybe the owner of the caravan park is running around at night with some tools and actually making a bit of damage so he can run his parts business on the side ;D

It's not me thats broken down Kev, it's me mate. But I wont leave him until it's all sorted. I've offered a couple of times to do an overnight run to Cairns but he doesn't want to do that until things become desperate.

So far all that has arrived is a vacuum hose for the brake booster. There's supposed to be some more bits arriving tomorrow,  but we dont know what?

As for my prize pack, least I'll be able to do a full change of all fluids when we get home 😁

slipped up to Woolies early this morning.

Its a 20 minute drive through farm land for me.
Just before 8am, in the rain, and he's the Asian workers hand pulling veggies.
Keep in mind, they don't grow 'em in dry dirt, so the conditions are testing.
The temp wasn't high either, but man, they were into it.
The farmer, tractors, packing crates, everything there to get the job done.
Based on where they were, they'd be at it a while too.

Then I got to thinking, about all the folks on Centerlink, who could, but won't work.

Then at Woolies, doing my self serve thing, when the biggest walrus of a woman uses the check out next to me.
She stunk of BO..... that rank, dirty filthy, I've not bathed since 1973 smell.

With her, are her Fukk trophies, 1 girl and 3 boys.
All I could think was, the old man must be too damn lazy to have a pull once in a while.

Not one pair of shoes between them.
She's bellowing at the kids to put Shit back on the shelves.

All I could think, was at least one of the boys will end up in jail.
The girl will have a belly full of arms and legs before 16.
I wouldn't rule out a brother being the father either.

Just a pack of no hopers bumbling through life on Centrelink. (I bet i'm not wrong either) 

Heading back home, the Asians were plugging away getting their work done...... good on 'em.

I'll never understand the world I don't think?

If Gambling is such a scourge on society - why are we flooded with ****in gambling ads so badly?
Each commercial break has 3 separate ads for different companies..  Even worse if you try and watch sport...
