Hi from Lake G
Have to thank Yes Optus for the free Wifi
Racing got off to a slow start to today
There has been some fast runs today which were aided by a bit of a tail wind
No serious incidents and the salt is the best it's been for some time.
Anyhow its drinking time
Cheers

It was a really good live show, featuring Justin Townes Earle - Steve Earle's kid.  Doc's band, the T-Bones, finished it out, after Jimmy got caught a bit flatfooted on his Australian LSR record, and a grandly coincidental shout-out across the pond.  :wink:

Triple R out of Melbourne is a station James turned me on to a few years back, and I stream it from time to time.

Don't know if they'll offer up a podcast in the archives, but the show was "Twang", and it aired on April 11th.

Flatfooted?, sheesh, unscripted I thought I pulled that together pretty well.

Speaking of unscripted, we're starting a new chapter....

Hey, where's the koala?

The Koala is at Dadswells Bridge on the Western Highway just under three hours from Melbourne on one of the routes we have taken to the salt. The Colonel started sending me pictures of it each time he went past , on unrelated business, there aren't many things the Colonel regrets in life but that is definitely one of them.

I have had to go to Horsham (a little further again along the Western Highway) for the last six weeks in a row, and I haven't finished there yet. The Colonel's responses have withered from "Stupid bear"...."Subaru bear".....to nothing, I'm wearing him down....

For the record they re-worked the koala at some point, as wikipaedia says " this page has some issues" meaning we are waiting for a nerd to pipe up and tell us when and what they did but suffice to say it looks more like a koala now and less "freaked out" than it used to........
