Nice one Mark & Judes. You guys make a fine pair of farmers :biggrin:

OK, just let us know when is suitable, this coming weekend is dead as far as lodge bookings are concerned (end of school holidates) so maybe we can put you up somewhere nice?

Still waiting to hear about training this weekend, will contact you once I have info.... ;D

Cool, I need to pick your guys brains a bit about Amageza. Are you going to do a qualifier from ADA this year?

No qualifiers this year for the Amageza, there will be timed circut the day before the race for starting positions I believe.

Ok, so we were down at the farm for the Easter Weekend, and had some work to do... Mark fixed the borehole pump, and we installed the new fireplace....

It works amazingly... draws like a train, and warms the whole house with little wood, we are super thrilled with it.

Then, Mark had the bright idea of turning the old gas geyser thing into a table... how's that look?

And then just flowers...  our proteas are growing nicely...

Beautiful Mal, I can imagine the serenity you get when visiting there, even though there is always so much to do...
