Australian Garden History Society’s 2011 Maryborough Conference Friday, Dec 24 2010
I haven’t posted on this as yet, the image above is a response to all the material I have worked with recently. I prepared the design and presentation powerpoint for the upcoming 32nd event, it was shown at their last event in Launceston this year. This postcard is from my Urban–Archaeology collection, I scanned every image I had from the region for possible use in the material. The powerpoint can be downloaded here + the conference registration brochure is here. Lots of talk of Fraser Island (I don’t want to see that name used again)!

Drama at 4:56 am today, Barbara finds a tick on little RonE Thursday, Dec 16 2010
The paralysis tick (lxodes holocyclus) is the single most dangerous parasite for dogs on the eastern coast of Australia. Just one tick is capable of causing paralysis and death. Paralysis ticks usually live on native animals like bandicoots and possums. The ticks attach to dogs (and humans) after we come into contact with them in the bush, park or our own backyards. The emergency vet was so relieved that we had found the thing very early, he said that most dogs arrived having respiratory or motor damage and this always has a residual effect on their future health and well being – trust Barbara to be on the ball!
Another pet on the Jeweller to the Lost set Thursday, Dec 2 2010
* collected at the Brisbane airport 3:46pm Thursday 2 December 2010. Barbara drove out without a name in mind, although all she’s done for the last two days is make name lists . . . ‘Ronnie’ it is. Eric took it all well and without a swipe at the critter, so far.
