HI Folks. Hope You are all well. The Rain continues. Victor Harbor has now topped 600mm and it keeps coming. Incredible. The Aquifer is full and it is running out of the ground all over the place.

Remember, the best and most useful knowledge that You will ever gain, comes from the worst possible things that have happened to You.
