I live in a suberb of Perth, Western Australia called Kelmscott.
Kelmscott is 24kms south of Perth city.

Perth lies on the south west coast about 3kms inland on the river Swan.

Western Australia is 2,500kms, app, north to south and 1,700kms, app, east to west.
It has a population of around 1.6million of which 1.2million live in and around Perth.
The population of Australia is about 20million.

Our nearest capital city is Adelaide, the capital of South Australia which is 2,250kms away.
Perth is arguably the most isolated capital city on earth.

WA is about one third of the Australian continent and is rich in ore, minerals,grain and livestock all of which are also exported.

The weather is normally hot and dry during the summer months (over Xmas) and temps can go as high as 43DegC for days on end.
During the winter months it rains heavily but temps always stay above freezing.
Water is our most precious resource.

I hope this gives some Idea of WA.

Facts about the State of Georgia:


Southerners are often called 'Rednecks or Hillbillies' and we don't generally mind wink2.gif A farming state from the start.

Go Here: Appalachian Vocabulary--provides definitions/colloquialisms for this area


Those interested in genealogical research might find this site helpfu; the site owner and friends have provided many links including a variety of interests.

Overview of the History of Georgia:



'America As It Was'/early 20C tour of the US



The City of Atlanta:
History of the City of Atlanta----


The Atlanta History Center:


DeKalb County---my home: (Just beyond the city limits of Atlanta).


It is big, we have a lot of traffic and that will continue to increase.

Corporate headquarters for many companies--the most notable, IMO, being Coca Cola. The hometown guys done good--as we might say here--amongst ourselves--speaking Southern.

Having lived here all my life--sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it.

Which is probably true of many people--wherever they are.

I would like to travel--can't think of another place that I would want to relocate to--
and there is no need --because the World has relocated to Atlanta. rolleyes.gif

I am an unpaid protester!

Let's start with a premise that I am splitting my time currently between the bedroom and the computer room. I have not left the house long enough to eat a meal out in about a week... (I have tried to eat breakfast in restaurants on a daily basis for over 53 years. I am sick!) Ergo, I was opening e-mails that were obviously SPAM while PE is at choir practice.

The e-mail said, "3 Toilet Seats You Won't Believe". I'm not Donald Trump. I cannot imagine sitting on the toilet in the morning listening to my toilet seat's tweets and retweeting them to the world. Still for some reason, I opened the e-mail and found a link to an article on "Rain Chains." Apparently, if I stand on the roof to urinate, the rain chains will make beautiful music... There were no links however to the lying toilet seats that sent out the SPAM!

Or, I can go to the television and listen...

or I can just say "p___ on it!"

Somehow, all three options seem equally irrelevant at the moment... A lot of noise and nothing related to any problems at hand.

I plan to see the doctor Monday... That means that I will likely wake up Monday morning clear headed.
