That's a very beautiful image -very The Man from Snowy River. I can almost hear the thundering of hooves!

Speaking of the thundering of hooves, have yu been able to cath any of the equestrian events? Very poor with their coverage I think.

My son and I watched Clayton's dressage test (the only event we saw in full), and I was trying to explain the movements. He was quite interested, so I may get him on a horse yet!

Warm regards,

Cindy

Hi Cindy,
The photo was taken in February after a lot of rain a mere shadow of that now.....I tried watching the videos on NBC but no go as they seem to be restricted to American Internet users. Although they do allow some to be viewed. You can watch direct streaming of the Equestrian events on Yahoo 7 olympic coverage. The Australian dressage Grand Prix tests were available today. I can only view the ABC...being a mountain woman and have not bothered to upgrade my TV antenna...living where I do reception not much good. Do sometimes see on 7 a blurry rendention of the events.
Kind regards, Elizabeth

Hi Mandy,
Queensland has a lot to answer for with respect to the flow of the Murray Darling or should I say non flow. Cubby Station diverts I have heard the Sydney Harbour volume every year. The people who live down stream of Cubby no longer get the ebb and flow that contributes to the health of the river. Cotton is one of the most water hungry cash crops on the face of the planet, Australia is the driest continent on earth, and pesticides are soaked into the ground but hey it gives a few thousand people jobs....and makes St. George and surrounds more dynamic...and hey economic growth in the short term is all we are worried about...bugger the children and grandchildren the wildlife and health of the river we are growing economically for a few years at least!!!
Cheers Elizabeth
