transparencies, image quality may be rather poor in some cases.

Not sure who this is, but it was taken at the shack at Kalbarri were our family had some holidays in late 1950's ???

Plenty of mud crabs around back then and we made pots to catch fish as well. A lot different these days.


My Dad's truck caught fire in the bush when he was bringing out a saw bench converted on the back of an old car.






The "Mile End Saw Mill Co." was built at the rear of our block and was a full-fledged operation.

During is working life it burnt down to the ground twice with no insurance to cover the loss for my parents.







My parents business, the Mile End Sawmilling Co.,

leaving school at age 14.

The Five Love Languages

How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

 If you express love in a way your spouse doesnít understand, he or she wonít realise youíve expressed your love at all. The problem is that youíre speaking two different love languages. With help from Gary Chapman, identify and then learn how to speak your spouses love language.

"This is the message which we have heard from Him* and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us."
