to start I would like to thank all the people who have bubblemailed me with their
best wishes and offers of support ,also i must take the opportunity to thank all the vollunteers and the Australian public who have donated there time, money and personal recources to help the fire ravaged communities of southern victoria. Around us all is black and the rainforests of the Taggerty river I beleive are layed to waste, Keppel Hut is gone and police still block the road to Marysville. But my family is safe and we still have a home, we are the lucky ones. This photo is the fire at the back of our house not long before it struck Marysville. May the fallen rest in peace and the living stand strong.
