Neil......

1. try a Fosters ...we sold it to you lot about 20 years ago as we found it becoming unpalatable due to the muddy water from the Yarra River
2. we are not really into playing with anyone's  balls  <*<
3. you must remember that Jerry is currently residing in OZ....so do you think a picture of the water spout in Lake Burley Griffin [Canberra] would be OK?

Well I didnít need to use google to find it,(I donít know how to). Iíve been across on an Abra once and was terrified but not nearly as much as when taking a tug or anchor handler in or out of the creek without sinking one of the buggers and spending an indefinite period in the local nick with no food or prospects!!
Itís bedtime in Canberra so Iíll dig a pic out in the morning. Unless someone else would like a go. I havenít sussed this new picture system yet.
