You're very welcome, Francine, I must have a look at this Google Earth, everyone speaks of too, I've not been to Sydney but would guess it has changed over the years, Thanks for your comment Francine.
This is great, Shirley. Thanks for posting this and the others of your area.
...Shall be using Google Earth to see more. The only part of Australia we visited was Sydney and surrounding areas - way back in '87.
Jacques, if you read my earlier comment to you, I have taken it in the way I thought you ment it to be, and I have forgiven you, Thanks for dropping by.
We say something like that when we like somebody!!!and you must forgive me, i do not understand anything of the English language, but it's mean that i like you and your photo's on jigidi! buy the way i live on the other side of the world!!!
Thank you for visiting my town, Ank, it is a nice country town, we live approx. 50K or 45 minutes from Dalby, Interesting to know the size of your country Ank, so tiny compared to Australia. the Netherlands would not be as big as the state of queensland where I live( that's the map I have here)If you have a look at a map chookies posted today, you can see the size of Australia compared to USA. I will post more tomorrow, Many Thanks, Ank.
I just visit your town by google. It looks beautiful. And then I read the comments and saw You don't live in that town. You have to drive 45 min, for being in that town. I can't imagine. My country is so small (the Netherlands) in 3 hours I can drive from North to South and in less as 2 hours from West till East. The thing I read here are very interesting. I think you had to work hard. I hope you will show more of your country your town your yard. Thanks
No problem, just Computer break down, Thanks for your concern, chookies.
I've been concerned about you, shirley. I thought perhaps a comment posted may have upset you. I've been missing your pics. I posted one today that may be of interest to you. Glad to hear that you're back on line!!
Thanks, chookies. I have more photo's to post tomorrow, all going well, my Computer has been down for a couple of days, just got it back today. now I have to try and catch up.
Thank you, chickiemama.
and for explaning to Jacques.Thanks.
I think you would, like my home town too, Pat, Thank you
It is a nice Country Town, Sally, I'm sure you would love it. Thanks Sally.:) :)
Oh! that's a bit naughty Jacques, I know you mean it in fun, so I'll take it that way, I'll forgive you .
Nice puzzle shirley!
Jack, even though you are joking and think it is funny, something like that can be very scary to some people. Please make peace.
Love it thanks so much Shirley. Beautiful place.
Thank you Shirley.... My kind of place... :) :)
Jacques....... Not funny, mate.... :( :(
Thank you, Jill, for visiting my little country Town, I'm very content with my little country home, with all the birds and wild life that visit, plus many other things I love to do, I've never used Google Earth, sounds interesting, I'll have to give it a go, Thank you jill for your interest .
Thank you, Patti, you're welcome.
Thank you, chookies.
I have just returned from Dalby, Google Earth, of course. I saw photos of Golders, Bella Spice and downtown, which is lovely. We do live in very different places. The most amazed I was about where you live was when I saw your photo of Grey Parrots walking around in your back yard. I've only seen them in cages, which is sad. Thanks SO much for this post. I love to look up places on Google Earth. Dalby was most enteresting!
Looks like a charming place! Thanks for sharing, Shirley!
I'm finding it very interesting talking to you, shirley! Obviously you are a country girl and have been all your life - whereas I'm a city girl and have been all my life. Our lives, although we live in the same country, are very, very different. I'd love to talk to you again when I'm not so busy.....
Hi chookies, Dalby region is renowned as a rich agricultural area, growing crops such as Cotton, Sorghum, Wheat, Barley, Sunflowers, Chickpeas, Mung beans and Corn, as well as Lamb, Beef and Pork, Also have a large Coal and Gas fired power stations. We are retired now, but were Beef cattle breeders. Thanks for your interest chookies.
Shirley, obviously living inland and not on the coastline do you grow things like cotton, rice, wheat etc. In other words, what do you do in a country town like Dalby?
Thank you for the interest in my small country town, chookies, I've been to Cairns and I have family on the gold Coast, as you say these places are a fair way from where I live, so I don't get to go there very often, I'll take my camera with me next time I go to town. Thanks chookies.
Thank you, gemstone, I agree about the map.
It's big enough, in that you can buy everything you need there, maybe not the variety you get in the larger towns,Dalby is about 45minute drive for us, next big town is Toowoomba, which is approx 11/2 hour drive. we usually shop once a week, so I'll see if I can take some snaps next time I'm in town. Thanks Jan.
I'm so glad you posted this, shirley - yes, with a population of nearly 10 thousand, it's certainly classed as a small country town. I am very interested to see more postings of where you live as well !! You certainly are a long way from where I live...the closest I've been would have to be Cairns and the Gold Coast but of course, with both places being in Queensland, it's still a long way from where you are.
I enjoyed your posting...thank you shirley:)
It's so good seeing a map...now when I see your name I will picture where you are in the world.
Shirley, thanks so much for posting this. Your city must be a pretty good size town. Care to share some photo of it?
