Several people have emailed me to ask if I've been affected by the great
Queensland floods. I'm happy to say that no, the floods are well south
of here. We've been having a lot of rain here (though not this week) and
do have a drainage problem around our 2-year-old house, but no flooding
into the house.

Jean and all,

I am glad to know that Cairns and Townsville have avoided the floods
and that you are not affected.

There are hundreds of thousands of people who have been forced from
their homes in the Gladstone and Rockhampton regions and lost all of
their possessions.
Farming and the minerals industry, which I am a part of, has been
affected in a big way, which has many many people unable to work until
the clean up is complete.
Knowing many people who have lost a lot, I am contributing towards the
support appeal to assist the people who have lost everything.

If people feel the same way as I do, the Salvation Army, an amazing
Australian social support organisation, is collecting funds to ensure
those hardest hit have a chance to recover.
Please consider donating a few dollars towards this tragedy.

I thank all those who have and will donate, as well as everyone who
sends their thoughts and prayers to those in crisis at this time in
Gladstone and Rockhampton.
