I read this and log #2 and was subtly reminded that you have had a heap more hassle than me; so amazingly well done that you appear to have come out of the other end without me needing to cart you off for some serious treatment at the Base Hospital Mental Health Unit!!

Take care, and ditto on the Cairns stuff. The Wet Tropics is unique in Aus and a wonder to behold...

Thank you so much Debs and many congratulations on the citizenship.

Hi well have read both part 1 + 2. What a journey you and your family have made. I take my hat off to you all and wish you only continued happiness in what ever comes next. Somehow I know you will succeed regardless...

Thanks very much.

I guess we are quite resilient.

We don't feel we fail at anything......we prefer to consider a result as a less satisfactory success.
