WELL I am not protesting about the Save Bello Site. 2000 Fans joined me in one week and the comments were interesting and respectful. Its been a very good week.

Wasn't in a protesting mood this week. Reasonably content, so I was. Then I began to think about Bellingen Hospital. Began to think about Neglect and history vanishing. of resources being smuggled away. I don't begin to write the few real grievances I have. They are buried a little and I shall need time to dig them up and see which ones are still stinking. 
I began to think about being conned by Authorities until an historic building is unfit enough to be pulled down. Of  pregnant mothers being directed up the Highway to Coffs. Began to think about a Local Community. 
In an off handed way I started a Facebook Page. I blew it a little in that I named it Save Bellingen Hospital which turns out to be the name of the site owned by the true fighters for this hospital. I do apologise and cannot work out any way to change the name. I do think that our message is very similar. 

As for the Facebook Page, I made a logo which says SAVE BELLO HOSPITAL SBH. The day idled along and I added some photos and some lightweight humour, a few links and THEN it exploded. At dinnertime on Day 2 we have passed the 600 Fans. Go Bello!

It seems that WE ALL PROTEST.

I am pretty quiet at the moment and rather subdued. There's an improvement for you. I can go seeking some grievances. Most mornings I wake with the Grievances to hand, but today is not so bad. One sparrow is feeding just outside the window and there is rain about. Our house is quiet and the T2 mobile is working. So is the Internet. All is  seemingly well. A few bush flies perhaps and Outrage might well come over me a little later but for now - I do not protest.

THE CLARENCE has been very kind to us in the 6-7 months we have been here - except when it comes to TAXI TRUCKS and COURIER SERVICES. Now we wait another full day for a Grafton taxi Truck to deliver a parcel about which we know nothing except what we have been told by the next door neighbour.
We had one drop a fridge at the bottom of our steps for us to carry up the stairs. We had another deliver the Telstra T2 phone and refuse to hand it over. Now this one !
Izzy says the Retravision delivery  of the new fridge was very good and so was the washing machine man and Andrew with the table. Now we wait and wonder - what is this Taxi Truck supposed to be delivering and when will it come.
We have made phone calls !
