    Sounds like you have a good day planned with your 'VIP's'. Used to go to the private area myself at the casino for fun but has lost that entertainment edge now as full of snobs and the 'look at me' crowd - shame :err: I am sure you will have a good evening anyhow.

     

    I notice you mentioning your farm a lot - grew up on a farm myself in the uk of course so would love to know more about yours. Do you find the farming harder here what with the water restrictions and other hardships?

    It is just fun watching people put soooo much money on the tables,!! We go to Melbourne for an exhibition each year and have a good day at the Crown Casino.That is an eyeopener there- the place is like a small city.Came out with $1200 the other year :shocked:

     

    Regards the "Farm" bit - that's my mate TADC calling it that,it's only a 2.5 acre olive grove and gardens.

    I have grown up living on a smallholding in the Uk and have experience with some animal husbandry ( dab hand with a razor and tar for de- sexing pigs).

    I'd love to do more with I can't find the right thing - looked at aquaculture - especially Yabbie farming).

     

    Water is a huge issue here obviously.The land we are on dries and cracks very quickly.

    Fortunately we have bore water so no probs for watering the garden - the olive grove has to fend for itself :biglaugh:

     

    Farming here is very tough with not much subsidy,the farmers have really done it tough in the last few years here.

     

    A friend of mine finds some profit in raising a good few head of beef cattle on 200 acres.His real financial winner is rearing Quarter and Cutter horses,the right one's can fetch 6 figure sums and be shipped to the states for competition.

    I had the honour of watching him on a Cutter horse in action last week - poetry in motion.:notworthy:

    happy birthday TYKE!! :wubclub:

     

    sounds like a great day out - i hope you won't 'leave' too much money behind ;)

     

     

    i like the idea of a 'farm' - i used to spend lots of time when i was a kid.

    getting the cows in and out; feed all the animals (pigs, hen, cows, 1 horse)

    was only little but as a child you don't see it like that i guess :)

     

    it was not ours though but very good friends

    and very rustic come to think of it

    just imagine the loo outside ... i winter :wacko:

    I'm not sure if I am late or not so happy birthday Tyke. I'm filling my days with entertaining 2 boys who finally start school after the holidays. I'm only online in the evening & then its dial up so just sssooooooo slow !
