Happy New Year!



We're off to country Victoria to celebrate New Year's, like we did last year. Bendigo is large enough to provide a party atmosphere but without the crushing crowds of Melbourne. The best thing is that our motel, the restaurant and the fireworks are all within a couple of streets of each other, so no need to drive anywhere. There's also the Wine Bank (a converted 19th century bank) where you can get a mean martini. Fortunately the restaurant is only a few doors downhill from there.

Cheers! And see you in 2007!

Hi Val ~~ Have a wonderful time in Bendigo and a very Happy New Year to you and your family. I enjoyed your 2006
post and yes I think you had a great year and may 2007 be a good one too,
with health and happiness for you.
It would be nice if Carlton got off the bottom of the ladder also. Have fun, Val
and take care, Love, Merle.
