A note from Down-Under
Linda and I are currently enjoying our retirement in a 3-month holiday in Australia. While attending the “Sounds of Silence” dinner in the middle of the desert near Urluru (Ayers Rock) the couple we started chatting with turned out to be 5119 Bill Shead and his wife Lynn from Selkirk, MB. We shared a number of stories and discovered we had many mutual acquaintances. It’s a small world!

Needless to say, wherever we are we continue to enjoy the fruits of your (and Rolande’s) labour – keep up the good work!
All the best,
