Dear Know, I have been unable to use my account for a long period although Google-Answers technical people thought they had fixed it once. Hence I have not been unable to answer question clarification you put to me. Finally they did fix it or it began working again at least and for this I am grateful and learnt a bit about what American customer service is all about. I.E It is as good as we hear down here in Oz. Anyway perhaps a bit late to go back to the question in question although I must thankyou for your input re: my mothers attempts to sell some of her pastries and cakes. What I may do now if you can wait a little is structure a suitable question with a suitable price that is right up your alley, so to speak. I.E When next I have a question that I think suits you I will direct to you alone. Hows that?? There may be questions from me to GRs at large in the meantime that you may in fact grab but rest assured at some stage I will actually direct a question your way. Hows that?? Now grab this small fortune and I will see you next time as above. John From Melbourne

Hi there John! Yes, I'm here, and isn't this a nice surprise! Wow, too bad about your account being messed up, but I'm glad you got it straightened out. We miss our regulars when they aren't around. :-) Since something about me makes it physically impossible to take your $2.50 without giving you something concrete for your money, I figured I'd pass along one of the more interesting websites I came across in my travels this week. Check here and perhaps you will find that you have a confluence right in your own back yard. DEGREE CONFLUENCE PROJECT http://www.confluence.org/index.php At the risk of compromising my double-secret anonymity and having you stealthily track me through the bush, here's the confluence closest to me. CONFLUENCE 40N 78W http://www.confluence.org/confluence.php?lat=44&lon=-78 And yes, I'd be happy to answer any question you direct my way. Thanks for following up. I appreciate it. -K~

Thanks for that knowledge -seeker. Yes I spent ages checking out the site on confluences and found it most interesting. I dont know how you will do all of my country with its 750 odd confluences and only 257 completed. We are very big as you know and I can usually say that with some conviction to almost everyone else in the world that I talk to except of course you are from a country even bigger!! Still as just one continuous land mass uninterrupted by water and islands it is a big country by any standard. I see your group has done all of my part of Australia right through the kangaroo country that I am from. Do they or your group realise that the rest of Australia that you have not done is still nearly the same size as Europe!!! Further the areas not done are populated by kangaroos,emus, wedge-tailed eagles and perhaps a few aboriginals.It was only in the 70s that they found people there who had never seen white people before! This is wilderness of the extreme kind that even 95% of Australians will never see. Most of us tough Aussies here get lost and scared once we get outside the comfort and familiarity of our big cities, i.e Sydney about 5 million and Melbourne about 4 million. Other than a few other state capitals of around one-2 million each thats the core of Austalias populaion of 18 million. Are you a co-ordinator of the project by the way?? just what is your role in it then?? John From Melbourne

Good Morning John! I'm glad you enjoyed the Confluence website. Actually, no, I have nothing to do with the Confluence Project. I stumbled across it in a comment made by Robert Skelton one day, checked it out, and thought the whole idea of it was very cool. And yes, I must say, they do have their work cut out for them in Australia. It might interest you to know that I spent 1969-71 living in the middle of your kangaroo country -- Alice Springs. It was a pretty rough and tumble frontier town back then! Having the adventurous parents I did meant that we spent a great deal of time traipsing about the desert, swimming in waterholes, and sleeping under the vast southern sky to the snuffling of dingoes, kangas, and cows. I also went to school with aboriginal children who came in off the desert just for the school day wearing their only "real" clothing -- their school uniforms. Yes, Alice was quite the eye-opening experience for this suburban American girl. :-) Thanks for fun discussion John. Brought back great memories. Take care, -K~
