Hello Kate - I had a wonderful time in NZ, thank you. I went on lots of walks, mostly with my SIL and some with Johnathan as well. The family thought Johnathan & I had got lost on Christmas Day because we went for a big long walk. Poor boy, he had to keep stopping to rest until his Dad found us and gave him a shoulder ride home.

Hi Kate, I see that you have uploaded a whole bunch of new photos over the last few days. I really enjoyed the quick look I had. I will come back for a slow look over the next couple of days.

To visitors to my page, I'm sorry I haven't removed all the Christmas message etc, but as the site has been so unstable since I've been back I've decided to leave it alone for a while! Poor Gath!

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for your birthday wishes to me on the 16th. My apologies for being so late in replying. I had a lovely day, made even better by the greetings from my new friends on this site. Thank you so much!
PS: love the pictures on your page.

Hi Kate, thank you for your kind thoughts about the passing of my Canadian cousin. He was a pretty special person, more so because I was the one who finally discovered our lost links with the Canadian branch of our family. And yes, Greg does have a way with the words- I loved his poem.
Michael is back from is Christmas in Germany and I will pass on your greetings to him and to Anne.

Hi Kate, silly me, I replied on my own page. Here's what I said -

"Hi Kate, I guess that's payback for the pleasures of living in the bush.
I have been following your photos and you have some beauties. Unfortunately I don't have time right now to go through them slowly, but I'll More...

Hi Kate, for the big hello you left on my page. I've been on the site long enough, I thought it was high time I parted with some of the hard-earned and support Gath and the site.

Hello Kate - thanks for visiting my page.
I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. I have to re-upload my NZ photos that I lost in the changeover. I also went on a few lovely drives while my daughter and family have been staying with me so will put some new photos on of our region as well. I seem to have had so many visitors lately I haven't had much time for anything else.
Cheers
Anne

About a 1/2 hour after you posted your message, I completed uploading AGAIN (after losing them again this afternoon) - the balance of the photos in my Photo Gallery. With the 197 on Flicker that comes to 230 total on the float.

Kate,just want you to know how much I enjoyed your photos - you have a special talent. Was also interested in where you lived! I lived in Sydney for 30 years (in Killara) and moved to Melb 18 months ago to look after my mother.
I enjoyed the visit.

Kate, I worked out how to add the little photos to the page.

Yes, Kate I like your caterpiller. It is very green!! How small was it? It is a very good photo. 21 days till we go on holidays.

How amazing! We were almost neighbours. I lived in Buckingham Rd Killara for 15 years and then moved just around the corner to Norfolk St for the next 15. My kids went to Highfields School Lindfield (where I worked for 21 years) then Killara Public, Knox and PLC.
That caterpillar photo is fantastic by the way.

Wow Kate, thank you for the cake & bubbly, 2 of my favourite food groups! 3 if you're counting the chocolate. I don't think it will make it to the freezer though.
I had a flat in Coogee in the dark ages, so it's a special place for me, filled with some great memories.

Hi, Kate!

Your chocolate cake recipe sounds fantastic! What is the name of it? At the end of the month I'll add all the new recipes to the book, so if you have any more goodies to share, please post them!!!

Hay Kate, a Robin from Kurrajong asked you a question of Tough Sudoku today, 7/2/08, about Bar Point and he is not a member and he wrote after you had been on. (so I thought you may not go back today). Anyway now you have exactly twice as many post as I have. Bo Ho!

Hi Kate, there's a big bunch of brown, muddy water headed down the river today towards Bars Point - I hope you are relatively immune from floods and the like.

I hope your still here! I just read your note on yesterday's page. So I'm answering you question about Bar Pt! You can walk along the front in some places, but there's a "bushfire" trail at the back & up the hill a little which goes along to the Pt. But More...

What an interesting tour I took of your photo gallery ...I wrote a comment under the avalenche, what a miracle that he came out alive. Thank you for visiting my gallery.

Thanks, Kate! Not being such an early player, I had thought I had missed the 'boat'! Might meet you at Spencer sometime..I stay at a friend's place at Gunderman fairly often..try to fish off the jetty...no luck yet, but bought some more gear at Spencer recently, and want to try crabbing too..Paul More...

Kate, thanks for the vist to my page and all the comments about the photos. The smocked dress Laura is wearing was bought at the markets in Vietnam for about $7. It is hand embroideryed.
I notice the National Trust festival has included Bar Island in their boat trip on 19 April.

Hello Kate, nice to see you!! Have a cuppa, and a lamington! Bit early for bubbles yet. Looks very dark over the west, so we might get even more rain. Everything is already soggy at our place. Catch you later, Bluey.

Glad you have YouTube now. Did you have any trouble getting it down loaded? (I did at first)

Kate.....A great big thank you for a great 'you tube' selection. As a jazz fan of many years, I have enjoyed much of Billie's music....I never tire of listening to her. The links are great also. I also enjoyed your picture gallery.Peace.

I'm glad you enjoyed the u-tube. My family were professional musicians. That's mom, dad. Kay, Frank and me. I quit when I lost some teeth. Hard to play brass instruments with lost teeth..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KATE!

Today’s the birthday of dear Kate
The one who takes the shots
I’ve long admired all her pix
Talent? She’s got lots!

As you celebrate your day
Take a tip from I*
Be careful how much wine you drink
Or you will get red-eye!

* I know, I know, it should be “me”
