Well it's blowing a gale outside, so I'm hiding inside.  It feels like rain so here's hoping it does rain, we're in desperate need of some to keep the crops going.   

It's been a sorta busy year mystery shop wise, going thru busy and quite patches. Million and one questions asked, when I've not put enough details in to reports. Then you sit there and think at times, derrrr can't you see I wrote that answer. Repeated questions phased differently are more annyoing.   

Horses are going well,  I'm sorta looking forward to the show season but not at the same time. It's like the local show is a month away!!!  and I have my inlaws local the weekend before. I still have to oil the truck floor and teach a horse to travel in the truck instead.  And of course can't find the motivation!!!! 

It seems like people have very short memories at times,  it's less than 16 yrs since the drought really hit and it has't gotten any better. It's been hard on the farm, the drought never broke. Even thou the government seemed to think it did, soon as we got a bit of rain.   Only thing that has saved the area I live in is the irrgation, which currently there is not much if any for thi season.   Farmers can't just walk off the land and start over, their debts will follow them.  

I was saying to my mum on the weekend, it's not 30 yrs ago they were going on about the height of the water table.  We were learning about salinity in the ground. Not 10 yrs after that, the water table started going down and we went in to drought.
