at heart and is passing on her love of all things French through language classes for primary and high school students. Patricia’s passion for French was ignited when she was 12 years old and her family hosted two exchange students from Paris. When they returned to France, they left Patricia with the prettiest doll she had ever seen and a few words of French. “Anything French, from postal stamps to music, became my collection as a teenager right until I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in French language and literature,” she said. “Then Paris, France, became my home for four years.” There, Patricia completed a two-year diploma in bilingual French translation – French to English – and was employed by a French software company which was part of an international team tasked with

developing computer software for what we know today as the internet. “Teams of Indian software engineers would arrive in Paris to develop software modules for this international project and I would translate Hindi to English to French as some of them were technologically highly qualified but could not speak French and had only a few English words to use,” she said. “On the other hand, the French engineers could not speak Hindi and did not much care to communicate in English. Voila, that’s where I fit in!” Patricia has tutored many high school level students in French and now living on the Mountain would like to combine her skills and her love of French culture and conversation to provide private tuition, based on the curriculum, to primary and high school students, in onehour sessions at $25 per child. She is also hoping to introduce primary school students from age six onwards to French through creative activities in 45 to 50-minute session at $20 per child. Another service offered by Patricia is French custom-made, intensive and fun workshops. These can be organised on an hourly basis for visitors planning to travel to France. Ideally, a workshop would be a group of four or six people taking part in a workshop of four to six hours. Patricia said she could even tailor-make a workshop for a couple. “I want to use my skills in this area doing what I love so much – conversing in French, sharing its culture and the intricacies of the French mannerisms,” said Patricia.

Festival just gets better and better
AMBORINE Mountain Chamber of Commerce President, Chris Kite, has hailed the 2013 Scarecrow Festival an outstanding success and has promised that it will continue to grow and enjoy the chamber’s ongoing support. “It just gets better and better each year and the enthusiasm and support from the community and business has taken it to a new level,” said Chris. While a record 120 entries were registered to take part in the festival’s judging competition, there were also many unregistered scarecrows dotted about the Mountain, some of a very high quality. Chris thanked the many volunteers for their months of planning and hard work to make the festival a success and in particular singled out festival coordinator, Kerry Sanders, for the dedication, time and effort she had put into organising the festival over the past two years. Kerry plans to take a wellearned break. Chris also acknowledged the work of the festival’s team of judges who included Scenic Rim Mayor John Brent and Kerry who said the standard of the entries was getting so high that choosing the winners was becoming an increasingly difficult task. As well as being a fun time for the

Paul Robert Burton
Fractured Country – a film documentary that explores the dramatic impact of coal and coal seam gas mining on the lives of Australian rural communities – will be screened at 6pm this Saturday at the Goat Track Theatre, Vonda Youngman Community Centre, North Tamborine. It will be shown within a concert by acclaimed singersong writer Paul Robert Burton who is widely acknowledged for his instrumental versatility. Fractured Country was produced by the Lock the Gate Alliance, a national coalition of community groups from across Australia who are uniting to fight reckless coal and coal seam gas (CSG) expansion. It features the stories of people whose lives have been changed forever by coal seam CSG mining on their land, as well as highlighting the groundswell of grassroots action to stop the industry from ruining lives and communities across Australia. Burton works closely with the Lock the Gate Alliance and the documentary’s film-maker David Lowe. He performs an eclectic repertoire of musical pieces that blend blues, Celtic, gypsy, Middle Eastern, gospel, bluegrass, swing, jazz and folk-rock influences “I work closely with the Lock the Gate Alliance and filmmaker David Lowe and have met and stood alongside many of the people and communities featured in the film,” said Burton. “My music and stories from these communities will inspire and support the people of the Scenic Rim to continue their vigilance to protect this amazing region from mining and industrialisation.” Entry is by donation of $10 (children are free). For further information or to book your seats, call Sally MacKinnon on 0412 682 008 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org The event is supported by the Ethos Foundation: www.ethosfoundation.org, Keep the Scenic Rim Scenic: http://www.keepthescenicrimscenic.com and Lock the Gate Alliance: http://www.lockthegate.org.au
CHANGING LIVES FOR GOOD
Sounds Spooky but exhibition adds new dimension to story book
N exhibition which literally showcases the children’s book, Sounds Spooky, explores a new dimension in picture book illustration. The free exhibition, at Marks & Gardner Gallery at the Secret Garden, allows adults and children to see the latest cuttingedge technologies in picture book production as they explore the haunted house depicted by Sounds Spooky illustrator, Sarah Davis. Those who dare can peer into the ghost’s bedroom, and look into the stairways, dining room and kitchen of the haunted house which have been captured in three-dimensional cardboard and plaster dioramas presented in glass showcases. While the gallery regularly gives book lovers the opportunity to view original illustrations in watercolours or pen and ink, this is a rare opportunity to see a book which has been created using 3D sculpture. The exhibition continues until Friday, November 15 at the gallery, 69 Main Western Road.

ARMCO RAIL BARRIER ENDS TARGETED BY THIEVES Believe it or not, but all those Armco guard rails on Tamborine Mountain Road, Tamborine-Oxenford Road and WaterfordTamborine Road that have the ends missing and sections pulled apart have been stolen. Main Roads have reported that over the past two weeks offenders have struck at night - in all probability dressed in road worker’s clothing - and with flashing light utilities are dismantling the ends of the Armco barriers and stealing the rail section. It is believed they have been selling the stolen material. The value presently is around $60,000 in stolen steel sections. Henri Robert Drive and the Goat Track are yet to be hit it seems and I ask you all to be on the look out for anyone after hours working on Armco rails. Main Roads advise that at no time are road works being conducted at night.
Mountain State High School and Tamborine Mountain College) graduating students will be taking part in the Queensland-based Driver Safety program designed to improve the skills of our new young road users. At a cost of around $120 per student and with about 130 students taking part, it is a considerable fund-raising effort that we are able to achieve through the assistance of community groups and events such as the Tour de Tamborine, School P&C, RSL, local businesses and coin drop money boxes at Subway, Westpac, Tamborine Takeaway and others. I would like to say a huge thank you to those who continue to support this program and I am delighted to report that we have a completely new training package being delivered this year which I believe is an improved value for money product for our kids. If you would like to see who we have engaged to deliver our students driver training package, visit: driversafety.com.au website which will introduce you to the company. We were a bit short of funds this year and when this became known Len and Elizabeth Jobson contacted me and asked how much we needed. Bless you dearly for the considerable donation provided to help us get through once again this year and continue to provide this invaluable training experience to our young new drivers.

N spring, Tamborine Mountain residents may notice an extra bird voice added to the usual chorus. A monotonous koo-el, koo-el, koo-el is the call of a Common Koel (Eudynamys scolopacea) also known as the Stormbird or Rainbird. The call is used to demonstrate territory and attract a mate. The name of the bird itself, Koel, is derived from a Hindi word based on the sound of the bird’s call. In Brisbane the name of a suburb was derived from the Aboriginal word for Koel – Tuwong or Toowong, which was also an imitation of the call of the Koel. Although the Koel is a diurnal bird it can sometimes call at night. With a length of 39–46 centimetres, the Koel is quite a large bird, but it can also be shy and difficult to see so it is more often heard than seen. The male and female have quite different plumage. The male is glossy black while the female has a black head and neck, its back and wings are brown with fine white spots and its chest is buff with fine black bars. The Common Koel feeds on fruit such as figs and may also take caterpillars and insects. It feeds in the canopy of forests, parks and gardens and will occasionally join flocks of other species such as pigeons. The Common Koel is a long distance migrant, which divides its time between New Guinea and northern and eastern
Australia (south to Eastern Victoria). In SeptemberOctober it arrives in Australia from New Guinea for its breeding season. The Common Koel is a cuckoo and is a brood parasite. The male and female only appear to have a short-term pair bonding. The female lays one egg in the nest of the host bird, often Wattlebirds, Friarbirds or Magpie Larks. Sometimes she returns to feed the nestling. The Koel nestling does not always eject other hatchlings, but it is the largest, noisiest and most demanding nestling in the nest, and its much smaller ‘parents’ must work hard to satisfy its appetite. In March the Koels leave Australia to return to New Guinea, They travel long distances. A Koel ringed in New South Wales was located in New Guinea 2950km away. The young Koels usually leave for New Guinea shortly after the adult birds. This is a remarkable journey since the young birds do not have any parental guidance or escort to make this first long journey to New Guinea. The Common Koel’s distinctive calls are a reminder that summer is not too far away. Bush Walk: Saturday 26 October, Coochiemudlo Island Mountain Nature Walk: Saturday 26 October Nadia O’Carroll

TRAVELLING PLACES with Gina UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF EUROPE Europe has a wild heart of rugged mountains, but this is also a continent that excels at gentle pleasures - be it a cycle between Provencal villages, a walk along clifftop trails to the villages of the Amalfi Coast or sampling Spain's many gastronomic highlights. Peregrine journeys take time to get under the skin of Europe. Seeing the famous sites is a must, but it’s often the memory of wandering through a small village or sharing dinner with a local family that will leave a lasting impact. Peregrine groups sizes in Europe are capped at 16 people. This means you’ll visit places the big groups can’t, stay in more interesting accommodation (try getting a coach-load of people into a Bedouin camp) and take all sorts of transport (Turkish gulet, anyone?). You'll also stay in a clean, charming and locally owned B&B, restored 15th century residence or former British Embassy building in Greece and not an utterly forgettable hotel chain. It's just another benefit of small group travel with Peregrine.

URING this year’s Springtime on the Mountain celebration, TM Arts Collective members were thrilled to unpack their new gazebos and display tables purchased through a Scenic Rim Council grant. Lindsay Orr and Sean O’Kelly earned the thanks of members for their invaluable help with the erection and dismantling of the gazebos on all three days of the festival. Because of the generous invitation from the Garden Club and its offer of the Botanic Gardens as a setting for the collective’s participation, members were able to enjoy the busy weekend on a lakeside setting
enhanced by perfect sunny weather. The weekend was also an excellent opportunity to launch the collective’s major fund-raising venture for the year: a calendar for 2014. Shannon Hunter, as coordinator for this fundraising event, worked tirelessly to have it produced and ready for sale for Springtime. At $20 and featuring some of the members’ works, it is a great idea for a Christmas gift.

Put off, put on
Dear Geoff, No, I am not talking about weight loss. I have been writing to you about Biblical transformation. And although our culture may be consumed with changing our external appearance, the Bible is more concerned about what is going on in the ‘heart’. It uses the word ‘cardia’, (cardiac, cardiology, etc.) when speaking about the heart, but the word means more than the muscle that pumps our blood. It is out of the heart that the issues of life come. Jesus says in Matthew, ‘For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.’(Matthew 15:19) Jesus was making the point that our problems originate inside us where we think and feel and desire. And that our relationship with God is not something that can be put right by external ceremonial washing. Although we have come to associate the heart with feelings and sentiments as in, ‘that warms my heart’, the Bible gives it more weight in our lives. The heart is spoken of as the centre out of which we think and act. It is here that we set ourselves to do good or evil. When we receive by faith the work of Christ on our behalf, it is as if God gives us a new heart, that is, new desires, new commitments, new motivations and affections. It is not a new muscle, but a new orientation of our innermost life. Paul encourages us, ‘Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right
hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things’. (Col.3:1-2) There emerges a ‘put off, put on’ dynamic in the New Testament that encourages us to actively engage in the process of change as we work out that fundamental change that God has worked in us. Paul speaks of putting off the ‘old self’ and putting on the ‘new self’. ‘You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body’. (Ephesians 4:22-25). As we ‘work out our salvation with fear and trembling’, that is, with humility and purposefulness, dependence and courage, we must keep in view that we are not working for our salvation. We are working out in our hearts and lives that which God has so marvelously accomplished in us. ‘Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose’. (Philippians 2:1213).

Holly helped by Village Lions
AMBORINE Village Lions Club has presented 15-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer, Holly Snowdon, with a special sleep alarm valued at $1683. Having the alarm permanently in the Snowdon home allows Holly and her family the security of knowing it is there ready to use at any time. One of the challenges Holly has to deal with is sleep patterns. Her mother Sue Snowdon approached the Lions Club with a request for help because so few sleep alarms were available for hire, they were costly, and could be hired for periods of only three weeks at a time. “It was then a case of putting your name back on the bottom of the list and waiting for your turn again,” said Sue. “It will make a dramatic difference to Holly, giving her more independence as she gets older.” A Lions Club spokesperson said club was delighted that it had been able to make such a difference in Holly’s life.

Plenty of country charm at Rustica
HOEVER purchases Rustica will not only be buying a piece of prime real estate but also a piece of Mountain history. Hidden in the middle of the North Tamborine business district on an acre of land, Rustica is in need of a new owner who can appreciate her period architecture and the character elements which give the home a timeless quality. There are high ceilings, tongue-andgroove timber walls, exposed timber floorboards, decorative room dividers and enclosed verandas which could be opened up again or left as weather-safe areas. This solid timber 1930s era high-set house has plenty of room underneath for more development or could be left as is, with a workshop area, second bathroom and a laundry as well as parking for two or more cars. A large walk-in pantry, galley kitchen and
HOUSE OF THE WEEK sunny breakfast nook are the heart of this family home which has three bedrooms with built-ins and two bathrooms. Such is the charm of Rustica that despite its age, the property has had only a handful of owners during its lifetime. Perhaps it is the sense of peace and sanctuary that Rustica radiates, as the back of the level 4047m2 block on Kidd Street has been left to nature, with large rainforest trees and piccabeen palms. For sale at $545,000 Rustica is being marketed by Mountain House Real Estate. To arrange a meeting with Rustica, telephone 5545 1800.

NIGEL WAISTELL – DIVISION 1
BUDGET DELIBERATIONS In my budget response, I expressed a desire to have some pre-budget discussions to determine where we might find savings should Council decide on a rate rise which required a reduction in expenditure. I am now confident that some pre-Budget discussions will take place prior to Christmas. These discussions are important because the Councillor team needs to provide the CEO with clear strategic direction as far as the budget is concerned. Budgets are all about revenue and expenditure. I wish to acknowledge that, since amalgamation, Council has moved from being financially weak to financially strong. This has occurred, in my view, because of two factors: Sound management processes for which we must thank the CEO and his management team, and revenue for which we must thank the community. The decision we now need to make is ‘where to from here’? Sound management processes must remain. However, with revenue, we must decide what is ‘fair’ and what is ‘affordable’. If everyone were happy to accept a seven per cent rate rise every year, this Council would be very happy. We could do a lot. However, the reality is that people are hurting and we, like other governments, must respond. Our rates base is low, our revenue stream from State and Federal Governments is not likely to rise and other steams of revenue have been milked. So we need to look at expenditure. Expenditure can be broken up into the three streams: • Provision of services like roads, bridges, drainage, parks, cemeteries, libraries and waste • Provision of other activities like economic development, cultural, community and social, and • Provision of administrative support. In my view, the provision of services, which includes the maintenance of assets, is sacrosanct but should be reviewed for efficiencies. All other areas are open for review and this might include an organisational review. We, the Council team, must decide how much revenue we can fairly raise from the community and what is the best way to expend that revenue. INFRASTRUCTURE CHARGES The State Government has capped the infrastructure charges which Council can charge developers. At present it stands at $28,000 per three-bedroom residence and $20,000 for one and two-bedroom residences. This charge is shared between water/sewerage and other infrastructure. So Council could receive $14,000 and the water and sewerage entity like QUU $14,000 for the $28,000 cap. The State Government is currently reviewing these charges and it has been reported (The Courier-Mail, 10 October 2013,) that the Government might cap even further the amount that Council can charge developers for infrastructure. This could mean that Council will have to pick up the shortfall which in turn means that you, the ratepayer, will pay for the profits of the developers. This cannot be right. In my view, developers should pay for all infrastructure charges and recoup a fair proportion from the buyers of those properties. Have a word with your local State member, Jon Krause. CONSULTATION The next consultation in the library will be on Monday 4 November, 4pm -5pm. Please note the change of timings. I am also available for one-on-one meetings at your convenience.

Councillor’s Comment NADIA O’CARROLL – DIVISION 2
SAFE WORK WEEK Workplace accidents can be devastating, but fortunately most can be prevented. As part of Safe Work Week, Council is holding a free safety workshop with Rodney Vagg. Rodney became a quadriplegic as a result of a workplace accident. No matter what your industry, this is an important presentation that you should not miss. The workshop will be held at The Centre, Beaudesert on Tuesday 29 October, 5pm for a 5.30pm start. RSVP 5540 5314. PREPARE FOR DISASTERS Residents are reminded that free waterproof document wallets are available from customer service centres to assist residents to protect their important personal papers. HEAT STRESS The last 10 months have been abnormally warm across Australia and climate research indicates that these conditions will worsen, creating greater risk of bushfires and another risk which is often overlooked – heat stress and heat stroke. It is important that people learn how to prevent, recognise and respond to heat stress and heat stroke in people and animals. For useful information, refer to www.deir.qld.gov.au/workplace/hazards/dangers/heat-stress and www.rspcansw.org.au/learn/pet-hazards/heat-stress-in-animals SCENIC RIM TRANSPORT Translink has announced an hourly bus service from Beaudesert to Browns Plains will begin in January 2014.

Dear Legal Eagle... E’VE SAVED OUR DEPOSIT AND ARE READY TO W BUY OUR FIRST HOME! HELP! WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Buying a home can be a long and complex process but there are certain steps you can follow to make it as smooth as possible. STEP ONE: Find out how much you can borrow based on your savings and earnings. Speak to your bank or mortgage broker for help with this. Remember to keep some savings aside to meet stamp duty and other fees. STEP TWO: Search – Scan the internet, local papers and speak to real estate agents for properties in your price range that meet your needs. STEP THREE: Make an offer – When you find somewhere you like, make an offer. Your real estate agent will help you with this step in coming to agreement on a price that you and the seller are happy with. The offer is normally made in writing by signing a contract. The contract is usually prepared by the agent. It is a good idea to seek legal advice before signing the contract. STEP FOUR: Acceptance – This is where your offer is accepted by the seller and they sign the contract. This becomes the ‘Date of Contract’. If you already have a solicitor, you can simply advise the real estate agent and they will forward the contract to your solicitor on your behalf. STEP FIVE: Choosing a Solicitor to Handle Your Conveyance – The legal transaction of buying or selling a property is called ‘Conveyancing’. The transfer of ownership of property is very important in the eyes of the Law and there is a process that must be followed. A standard conveyance takes 30 days to reach ‘settlement’ from the ‘date of contract’. This process is usually more involved for the buyer than the seller in Queensland. The buyer (or their solicitor) has to ensure that the title to the property is clear and this is an important task as it involves doing various searches of the property. Also, the buyer (or the solicitor they choose) is responsible for making sure funds are available at settlement, drafting the transfer documents and stamping them, attending settlement, organising bank cheques to hand over the balance of the purchase price and getting various documents you need to transfer the ownership of the property. STEP SIX: Arrange Your Finance – Speak to your bank or mortgage broker and liaise with your solicitor to ensure funds are approved by the ‘finance date’ and will be available by the settlement date. STEP SEVEN: Arrange a Pest and Building Inspection of your new property. Your real estate agent will assist with this step. STEP EIGHT: Contract goes ‘Unconditional’ – This means your finance has been approved and you are happy with the pest and building report or any issues have been sorted out. Now you are on the home run to settlement. STEP NINE: Settlement – Funds and documents have been successfully exchanged. The property is now legally yours. Time to pop the champagne and move in to your new home! Ian MacAllan NB: This information is intended as a guide only. If you have a question you’d like Legal Eagle to answer, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org

Semi-slug – Cucullarion parkini, Palm Grove National Park How remarkable and strange a creature is a Semi-slug - with a fleshy hump shaped like a snail’s hollow shell. One of our party immediately realised that this was a different species to the Blackspotted Semi-slug which we see quite often. I sent the frame and another filmed three months later, to mollusc expert John Stanisic at the end of September. Last week, he confirmed they were the same species and requested information about the location. It was only when he knew that I was referring to Palm Grove on Tamborine Mountain that he provided the identification. On googling the name, imagine my surprise and pleasure on reading that John had discovered the Semi-slug in The Knoll in 1998. Our sightings were the only others on record. I remembered seeing a photo by Louise Piper of a similar Semi-slug taken in daylight on her letterbox. I obtained a copy which I forwarded to John. He confirmed that it was Cucullarion parkini. Louise took her photo over 18 months before our first sighting in November 2011. Our record lasted two days. But the Mountain, with four sightings, is the only place on the planet where this mollusc is known to exist. Frames from video footage celebrating Tamborine Mountain’s biodiversity. Peter Kuttner

Eight ways of scaring people with misapplied science

aving taught university chemistry for 40 years I think I should warn that Robyn Knight’s article is misleading about drinking water (TM News, 24.9.2013). Clearly against fluoridation, she writes “fluoride is a highly toxic poison”. She would have served readers much better by comparing fluoride with vitamin A, since both are health essentials at 2mg per day and toxic at higher doses. The article worries about impurities in the fluoridating chemical, yet the added fluoride never exceeds 1mg/litre, so the concentration of a 1% impurity could not be greater than 1 part in 100,000.000 parts of water, and even if the impurity was cyanide that would be just a fraction of what the WHO permits. Water that has passed over rocks and earth already contains the common elements (arsenic included!), and quantity arithmetic suggests that fluoridation will make no significant additions - apart from fluoride. There has been much scary writing lately in the Tamborine Mountain papers that gives an appearance of science but doesn’t stand up to scrutiny, and I have noticed several dodges used by the writers in their persuasive efforts. Readers of letters and articles about health might look out for these tactics. It could help in distinguishing the good from the bad. One tactic is to dwell on accidents, such as the fluoridation article’s North Pine one (What human activity is without accidents?). Another tactic is to pad out the writing

with trivial or irrelevant items, such as the article’s naming of countries that don’t fluoridate. This leads to the “selective facts” ploy, for if the intention was to inform, the article would also have named countries that do fluoridate. Then there’s the use of pejorative language. Adding fluoride to water is as nutritional as adding vitamins to margarine, but in Robyn’s article it becomes “mass medication”. The real cause of opposition to fluoridation is a gut feeling that the added fluoride is artificial. How else can one explain why natural water containing too much fluoride attracts no attention from activists? But it is a scientific certainty that fluoride in water is the same however it got there, so grumpy uses of “artificial” or “chemicals” in health screeds provide more good reasons to doubt what is written. Demonising industry and profit are further indicators of a persuader in unsuccessful search of a genuine argument. The cited You Tube focuses on a fertiliser factory to illustrate the claim of industry disgorging waste into drinking water. Stated less dramatically, the factory produces a by-product used for fluoridation. (The play on its toxicity is particularly deceitful, because this byproduct is hydrolysed to fluoride and innocuous silica long before anyone could drink it). Such propaganda could sweep fluoridation right out of Australia. People are punished for the sexual abuse of children, so why should anyone applaud this abuse of children’s teeth? John Leisten
uide Dogs Queensland has launched a new pedestrian safety campaign – Watch Out, Cane About – with the RACQ and Queensland University of Technology to raise driver awareness of pedestrian safety on our roads. In a recent survey of Queenslanders with a vision impairment, one in two reported having a near miss with a vehicle over the past five years, and one in 12 reported a collision with a vehicle. These are frightening statistics and something all drivers should be aware of. We’re using the Watch Out, Cane About campaign to let drivers know how to react to pedestrians with a vision impairment trying to cross the road. This includes keeping an eye out for visual cues such as canes and guide dogs so the driver can
exercise more caution, allowing extra time to cross the road, and keeping a vehicle stationary while a person crosses. We also want to deter motorists from flashing lights, yelling or honking at pedestrians or even stopping too far back, as this can just cause confusion. Please visit the Guide Dogs Queensland website or Facebook page for links to the new educational video and community service announcement. With the help of the community, we hope to reduce these statistics and provide a safer community for everyone. Chris Laine Chief Executive Officer Guide Dogs Queensland Letters continue next page

No need to steal my book any more
eople have been stealing my book The Ripples in My Pond from local cafes that have their copy available for people to read, so I decided to stop the crime wave by offering more books for sale. I am getting another 100 books printed very soon. The book is an A4 size and full of local information and stories. If anybody would
like a copy they can phone me on 5545 2107 between 9am and 5pm. The books will still be the same price of $40 each. I will also have them on sale at Curtis Falls Cafe. Gee it's hard to be humble when people are stealing a book I have written just so they can have their own copy. Louise Piper

Strange goings-on at Zamia
’VE heard they’ve been talking about wife swapping … at the Zamia Theatre. Surely not! The police have been called in, and some strange behaviour has been occurring on the sofa. I’ve also heard someone has been behaving suspiciously in the ’loo at the Prince of Wales pub! And suspicions have been aroused by a mild-mannered man running about with £735,000 in his suitcase. For only $18 each ($15 concessions) you can find out what it is all about. If you can encourage seven more friends to sit at a table with you, you won't pay more than $12.50 on the first night, or $15 on subsequent performances. Yes, it’s Funny Money (or strange goings on at 42 Elgar Avenue, Fulham). Ray Cooney has written a very funny script which has made rehearsals a joy.

HE season of spring elicits an increase in bird metabolism, leading to alterations in social organisation TMNHA birders met recently and heard reports of unusual domination of Little Wattlebirds and a remarkable diminution of Noisy Miners and very vocal Olive-backed Orioles (Julie Lake). Pat Stockwell noted an increase in the voluble Figbirds (female above). Ros and Jim Inglis have been seeing seasonal visitors, Dollarbirds and Spangled Drongos (bottom). Little Shrike-thrush numbers have escalated, but unaccountably the Grey Shrikethrush (below) population has disappeared. Flights of 40 Topknot Pigeons illustrate the avian energy expended in the search for food in the Inglis fig trees. Three Japanese Snipe were reported from Riemore Downs by Pat Stockwell. Members welcomed Mike, and Kylie, and wish them a long and fruitful association in the fascinating hobby of bird observation and study. Ivor Filmer (Photography Marg Eller)
