Spent today washing up the olive press and press room - after yesterday's first press of the new season!

Expecting to spend the next few weekends doing pretty much the same -
Saturday - markets and then harvesting
Sunday - harvesting
Monday - pressing
Tuesday - washup & cleaning up
W T F - back to paid employment for a bit of a rest!

Rinse, repeat! (until harvest is done!)

Love olives JA - lot of work though - I just buy a jar!

We did a round trip from Avoca to Beaufort to Warrnambool and back again to Ballarat - Smythesdale Gardens free camp - great spot, lots in - showers (get code from ph number on brick building) rubbish bins (yay) nice little town. Donation envelopes (for those who wish) go to the local servo. No time limit. Today we carry on to Maryborough, Bendigo, and see where we end up for the night - I wonder?

Have a good day one and all!!!

Well we headed off to Canberra, to pick up a friend who is going to travel with us for a bit - from there to Yass, by the river, lovely free camp. OneK walk to shops, nice spot.

Friends MH has a power problem, so she headed back to Canberra to get that looked into, will catch up somewhere. Currently in Boonah showgrounds, for a week, MH service, fridge fix (fingers crossed) no gas coming through to it, but stove works ok. Breastscreen appointment = ouch!

Then heading to Boynedale Bush Camp for a meetup, then ...........................................somewhere!

Washing day here north of Mackay QLD.   While farm sitting I have the pleasure of looking after some lovely animals.

Last night I had one jump on me when I was asleep. But it ran off before I could get to the light.

 

Moved into the farm house as the baby of the house is fretting for the owners.( Maltese Poodle).  Glad the weather is lovely and enjoyed watching Jessica Mauboy singing this morning.

 

Thanblankstare ks for the chat.

Washed the Cruiser and van down today. Beaut day for it in Brisbane, as it wS 24degrees and some cloud. No wind. Great to get those jobs done until next time. Its easier washing down a van made with the Alucobond (Composite panel for all those who dont know what Alucobond is)panels than the Allie sides and roof.

Hi Rocket,
Yes, mate. It is cold here and a cold westerly blowing which makes it seem colder with the windchill factor. Tow nights ago, we got down to 6 degrees. Coolangatta yesterday morning was 0.1 degree! Mate, cold enough to freeze the nuts off a tractor!

Hi dave1952,

yes, some are getting cold. We just left bundaberg qld n it is a bit chilly, but thats all.

Pleasant at calliope rest stop. Sign says beware of crocodiles. Now every time we stop there i am on the lookout.

vomits are going around. I follow the saying in the old ad wash ya hands jeffrey. Two years ago in this area, i got the vomits n 3 days in hospital. So i am cautious now. Not going anywhere near a shop.

Hi Rocket,
We went on a cruise in 2015 and the number of people who visit toilets and fail to wash their hands afterwards is quite alarming. My last opportunity to drive the porcelain convertible was last year, but nothing to do with gastro bugs. Found I was allergic to morphine in tablet form. Dunno why, but I seem to tolerate the injections when necessary so long as I dont try to end up vertical while still affected by it. Not fun! He wife and I carry and use personal hand sanitiser, which helps.
Yeah, Calliope does have a few mud geckos getting about. When I worked on the QCLNG gas pipeline, a large one was photographed cruising around in Gladstone Harbour. Excellentincentive to not go swimming up in that neck of the woods, so to speak.
