Wow, it seems lots of sites are having forum trouble.  A few weeks ago HT was down for a week.  And now the australian permaculture forum is down.

Wow. 

I'm surprised we don't have a big rush of traffic due to australian permies needing their permaculture forum fix.

I think you have already had some australians on. I have wondered if you did not have big daddy BIll Mollison writting on the forum. Do you remember that Brenda Groth said that she had a number of illnnesses, type reumatism, arthritis, that made it painfull to go out in the cold and one contributer wrote back and he is a contributer of more contributions and i should remember his psuedonym, that she was right and the thing to do was to move to the tropics. Well did not bill Mollison move to the tropics, might that no thave the old man of permaculture himself talking. I am inconquerable given to smelling out such things but not to smelling out gossip usually, that does not interest me so much, that also makes me given to imagining what does not exist at all.
    There was someone else i wondered about but i can't remeber who now. rose macaskie.

The other Australian who i thought might have been on this sight is Peter Andrews, Somone was answering Jennifer Smith on horses and said that Horses eat three times as much as cows and that down were he came from they hated horses, they prefer cows, they would ride cows if they could. He said that he came from Mexico but Peter Andrews loves horses and in his life the people around him disaproved what he was doing and maybe part of that was his horses, his son who bought his farm has cows instead of horses, and his wife seemed to think he could have looked after the family better financially, though his daughter in a photo of her had a very smart talking of how the people around him hate horses, though he pretended to come from Mexico.
  It seems logical that the fathers of permaculture would want to help with a new site, i suppose i would if i were them
  They do ride cows in eastern asiatic countries, buffalo anyway, they are a symb ol of the soul. agri rose macaskie.
