A serious, but all-too-common occurrence.


This afternoon, in Adelaide, tragedy struck at Astec Paints at St Marys, a company that has proudly manufactured paint and allied products since 1978.
Spare a moment for the effects of such a tragic event and the distress caused to the hard-working employees and the management of this wonderful local company. Even the firemen, attending this fire sadly suffered casualties.
Photo taken from the nearby foothills looking over the suburbs. In the distance is Glenelg with it's Norfolk Island pine trees that you have all seen before, around Valentine's Day.

I´m so sorry to see this, and I´m sorry for the employees and the firemen. It is a tragic.
I read a comment of Mme. at Lynn´s and I´d like to say I hope you and Mme. can find some confort in this tough situation you´re facing with your mom. You know our thoughts are with you.

Monica,
Thank you so much. It's hard when the kids are spread out all over the world.
They have all just been back in Oz for William's Christening. It's tough for them, too.

Excellent photo that we'd rather not see. Tragedy indeed.

Just went back to your Chirac post, it's fantastic. The three faces are so close in size and colour that I had to look twice (and more than twice) to realise you were posing in front of a photo. Where on earth did you find such a dreadful shot of our President? He looks awful!!!

Laughed a lot
