Hi Kate, look I have a picture now. (Av???)Robert from work helped me get it. It was very hard to get the picture down to 50x50. As I was at work I only had a few photos and this one is from Colleen. (I hope she doesn't mind!) Anyway it is good because I am sooooooo far away from the ocean it will be a little reminder.

Hi Kate, I think I have pieced it together now - Maureen/Dubbo is your sister and she is visiting Wollongng this weekend. I do hope the predicted bad weather has cleared by then. It looks like the people on the south coast are in for a bad night tonight - although the weather bureau has been More...

Hi Kate, did you cop any of the nasty weather ?A oldtime told me ' Any fool can take a coat on a rainy day, it's a wise man that takes it on a fine day.' Hope you are O.K. Cheers.

Hi Kate, excuse my ignorants but what is your 'avatar' ?

Hi Kate, I see that I was right - they were wrong! The weather forecasts are after all, just guesses. Admittedly they are educated guesses and are supported by a super-computer in Melbourne, but they are still guesses.
I agree with you that it must be a thankless task because it is a fairly More...

It's the little picture with the message you send,ie mines a bit of hydrangea, yours is that pretty bird, Maureen's is a Tassie beach etc. It from Hindu mythology. An Avatar was a deity descende to earth. So an incarnation or manifestation. So those little pictures are representations of ourselves, I guess is the best way to explain it!

I sent you a note on my page. Sorry! cheers

Hi Kate, I must congratulate Maureen when I get a moment. I hope your weekend goes off without a hitch. We lived in Port Moresby for two years and during the Wet Season the one thing you could guarantee was every time we held a dinner party the power would go off at the critical moment of cooking More...

Hi Kate, thanks for the reply, I caught the cold from hell last week so I didn't even touch a computer so apologies for the late reply.
I don't think most of the residents really mind the RAAF base and the planes, we're really proud of the work that they do which I think helps deal with the noise. Talk to you soon.

Hello Kate! Yes, do look at the St. Kilda website - the photos are stunning. It is such a strange and wonderful island. One knows WHY the people left - I would have done the same - but at the same time it feels sad that they did! May it long continue as a retreat place.

Hi Kate! I didn't see you had set up your page too - so I didn't reply to your earlier post on this page. Welcome too! Of course there are heaps of Kates in Sydney ... that's why I started to put my suburb (though not origionally, I used to be Kate of Sydney too at first). I think putting my More...

Hi Kate, I was just going to tell you that I have new photos but you have already seen them.

Hi Kate, thanks ever so much, spicy pumpkin soup is one of my favourites. It sounds like your weekend was fun. As you can see from my photos the weather for our harbour cruise turned out to be magnificent.
I have a bit of running around to do this afternoon. I'll be in touch.

Glad you like it, Ian! We had some last night after I cooked up the rest of the pumpkin. I threw some prawns in too. I've got 2 more batches of the basic puree in the freezer for another time!

It is a good job I've just had lunch otherwise my mouth would be watering by now. Perhaps to dream of your delicious soup will be enough.

Hi Kate. I love your pelican photo. I have left you a box of chocolate macadamias for your enjoyment. Sorry I haven't dropped in before now.

Must admit that I have never had cumquat marmalade but it sounds wonderful. Do you make it yourself? I pansies. You have some great photos yourself. I am still adding to mine. Glad you like them.

Kate I am so sorry to hear that your Dad is not well. Nothing serious I hope. Sending you lots of hugs and best wishes for you Dad. I know how hard it can be caring for a sick parent.
29/Jun/07 12:55 PM
 |  |

Oh Kate, please do not feel guilty. At least your sister is nearby if they need any help. I have had to help my Dad out because he has not been well and my Mum died last October. She had Alzheimer's for some time and so Dad was looking after her. He would not let her go into care. She was only More...

Hi Kate, you were up late last night.First on all the puzzles. Didn't you go to Bar Point?

Hi Kate, I'm glad you are still viewing my photos. I'm sure if and when you come to Tassie you will enjoy the experience. Like you're pic. Cheers.

Oops! Just checked out your 'flickr' and you have been to Tassie. Ihope you had a great time.

Hi paul in Perth!

Kate there is absolutely no reason for you to appologise. I believe that we can never prepare or be ready to say goodbye to anyone we love. I have left you a bunch of tuplips to cheer up a cloudy day.

Thanks Kate. They are actually pittosporum seeds... same as the ones in your photo I guess. I love your new photo. What a wonderful surprise for you to find. I would probably scream with delight and scare him away.

Hi Kate. I'm not sure if the birthday wishes on the site were for you or not, but Happy Birhday regardless! I enjoy your pictures, those that have shown up on the site and those on youe Flickr page. Well done, and cheers!

Thanks Kate. I had to have something cute for the July 4th celebrations.

Hello Kate - just read your comment on the kid's page. Bentley is a suburb of Perth and Albany Highway runs from Albany right through to Perth as far as the Swan River, I think it stops, and over the river is the main city of Perth. Albany Highway is just over 400kms long.

Kate, I thought I would stop by your place and say Hi! Hope you're having a good day! Here are some flowers to brighten it! I couldn't see your new pics from here, but your flickr pics are beautiful!Visit my page anytime! If you ever want to chat, drop by the SA2 page(under Clips conversations) sometime! Take care!

Hi Kate. If you're wondering why you got so many strange reactions to your Centrelink joke, it was because I posted that joke a few days earlier, but the details were a bit different. The vocabulary used by the mother and the kids' names apparently were all black American (of which I was totally More...

Hi Kate, thanks for popping in to my page and your kind words. I am just loving this new photo gallery thingy.
Yes it is a great place to live, the reason we moved here was to get our kids out of the burbs. We moved to Melb 10 years ago from S.A. where we had lived in the hills. So to move back More...

Hi Kate, did I see somewhere that you had just returned from skiing?

Kate, long-winded is only important when you run out of breath.
Many thanks for your response, I'm really not sure where I saw the comment and I guess it is becoming less important as time goes on. I'll try Kate/Sydney (Lane Cove) and if it is not her, I'll quit.
I'm glad you enjoy my More...

Hi Kate. I just spent some time looking at your photos, and while I only commented on a few, I could easily have added comments to many others. Great shots my friend. Thank you for sharing them with everyone!
