Gooday, hope you are both having fun.

Golf on Sunday was played in near perfect conditions.

Nothing out of the ordinary Occurred.

We had five participants, yours truly came in first with a net 30 for the front nine. Dick Wagner next with a net 31.

Dick and I had same amount of strokes so there was no fighting except I fell over on the last with a five on the par three, you can imagine the excuses flying around Sunday night at the club. Brad Atkins came in third with his 33 then came Peter Ellery and Kenny Davis with nets 35.
Great morning great fun.
Cheers, Macca.

Mexican bug unleashed on outback cactus

Invasive weed boxing glove cactus growing well in far west NSW

SUPPLIED: WESTERN LOCAL LAND SERVICES OFFICER MITCH PLUMBE
Tiny cactus-sucking insects have been let loose on an invasive weed infestation in far west New South Wales.

It is because the cochineal (dactylopius tomentosus), a native of Mexico, loves to gorge on the boxing glove cactus (cylindropuntia fulgida), that authorities have released the microscopic creature near Tibooburra and Stephens Creek north of Broken Hill.

Western Local Land Services senior officer, Mitch Plumbe, said he hoped the bio-control bug would stop the thorny invasive plant spreading further in the region.

"Cactus has been a weed issue out here for a fair while now and we've got a number of different species," he said.

"But boxing glove cactus has never had an insect control that's been specific to that species.

"We've been lucky enough to get hold of a cochineal species recently introduced to Australia and we've introduced it to a few of the cactus populations around the far west." Read More at ABC CLICK HERE

See Australia through outback livestock stations

SARAH HUDSON, The Weekly Times
November 2016

IT DOESN’T get more Australian than hitting the road, heading outback and staying on one of our country’s remote farm stations.

And with agritourism becoming a handy side earner for an increasing number of graziers, travellers have a linked route of accommodation choices that can take you from north of the Victorian border through to Queensland, with even more choices out west.

Once you drive over the Murray River, one of the first stations you get to is Lake Paika Station at Balranald. Lake Paika Station is between Yanga and Mungo national parks, with accommodation in the property’s restored original workman’s quarters.

White Cliffs Nsw

The story of White Cliffs New South Wales.
White Cliffs is a small town in outback New South Wales in Australia, in Central Darling Shire. White Cliffs is around 255 km northeast of Broken Hill, 93 km north of Wilcannia. At the 2006 census, White Cliffs had a population of 119. The primary school opened in 1895, and has operated continuously since then. White Cliffs was one of the many places visited by Bill Bryson in research for the book In a Sunburned Country

History:
Opal fields at White Cliffs, The town was established in the late 19th century when opal was discovered. Opal has been mined ever since. The first Australian opal was found 20 years before in Queensland in 1872, when a party of kangaroo hunters were operating in the White Cliffs area. One of them, who had left the party to track down a wounded kangaroo over some low stony hills, picked up a pretty stone which appealed to him. When taking back the stone, they suspected it could be opal which the local jeweller confirmed. He advised to get as much opal as possible since this could be more profitable than kangaroo hunting. When the group filed a claim, opal had not yet been listed under gemstones, and it was decided to file the claim under the "Gold Mining Act"

Inhabitants.
Many of the residents live underground, using mining equipment to dig extensive homes in the hillside to avoid the intense heat outside. Cricketer Bill O'Reilly was born in White Cliffs, the son of the first school teacher.

From a visitor to White Cliffs New South Wales

Just a short note to the people of White Cliffs we drove in to your little town on Friday, just another town but it is not just another town it is full of wonderful people that just wanted to mix with visitors to town, we stayed at the caravan park, it's clean and a nice park.

Red Earth and the Underground Motel are a must see in White Cliffs the Den and the Bottle Shop.

Everyone wanted to talk with us at the Hotel. We will return to White Cliffs next year and stay a week, after three days I felt like a local.

Thank you.
Wendy and John Queensland
