Hearing News from AU. Huge fires in your beautiful country.
I hope none of our fellow fishermen has damages from the fires.

We have had yellow skies on the North Island in New Zealand from the fires.

I hope It gets controlled as soon as possible.
Let us know how you are there.

Thanks for the well wishes

We have had a few days of cooler weather. A little respite...But tomorrow the real fun starts again. Forecast is 43 for Wagga Wagga with strong wind.

Don't get me wrong. The situation is very dangerous...As I type this some people on Kangaroo Island have just been given 5 minutes to get out. Army troops are there desperately trying to get people out. In fact, by the time I finish typing this it will be to late for anyone that didn't get out.

With the cooler conditions things have been stable for a few days. As I say, don't get me wrong, stable does not mean "safe".

Thank you for sending help. Although not reported in the news (a few little reports is all) New Zealand has been very quick to send help. Thank you.

Also a thank you to Canada and the United States for sending help.

There is a bit of fake news. Best to watch only official news outlets. The scammers are also out in force...DO NOT GIVE ANYTHING TO ANYONE. Donations of cash is best and DIRECTLY TO OFFICIAL FRONTLINE CHARITIES. There are no raffles or phone calls or door knocking. If you want to and can help, then cash is best...DIRECTLY TO OFFICIAL FRONTLINE CHARITIES.

These few cooler days have given a chance to re-group and get ready for tomorrow. Some good news and the only good news, the heat wave expected tomorrow will only last 24 hours...

NEWS BREAK...It seems that the heat wave has already hit Victoria. Just the front of it so far...So just a few hours and I should start to feel it.

Unofficial news is somewhere between 40% and 87% of these fires were deliberately lit...arson !! Official news says it is closer to the 40%. Just in NSW at least 24 people have been arrested....But it is best to just deal with situation first. Then we will start talking politics.

Thanks again for your kind words and well wishes.

If you have a God then prey for us...tomorrow is going to be a little taste of hell.

I am not one to pass on false news...

But word on the street says the death toll is bigger. 24 confirmed dead....But I am getting news that 37 are dead. Please, this is NOT CONFIRMED.

IT IS NOT CONFIRMED,,,Reports are that the death toll of these fires is 37.

Also, I am not one to use song for remorse and sorrow and thought....But again, I use the word "but"....May this song express my thoughts and love to those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect us.

Hey Mini,

I looked for you on FB but can't find you. Maybe I am just spelling your name wrong. Send me a friend request if you want to.

Yes, I am speechless too.

Well, maybe not type-less....

A lot of people want to drag politics into this...And I say, let's deal with the situation first !!! As you know I am not a man that likes to swear, but some of these low life scum are really starting to push my buttons.

These fires have been burning for several months....Yes, I hear the news "WHY" "WHY" "WHY"....For God sake let the boys and girls do their job !!!

I am about to start using naughty words....Let the men and women do their job...We don't need any more air craft, we don't need any more ships...For Fu***k sake you cannot put a plane in the air in these conditions.....Just let the boys and girls do their job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Mini, my anger is not directed at you. You are a jewel among gems.

Tomorrow is going to be hot. ...... Great thunder storms .... I haven't even cooked dinner yet, its 10pm and we have thunder storms...Great like thunder and lightning is just what we need....

The local radio station, 93.1 Hit (Wagga Wagga) has a list of official donation places -

Hit 93.1 is also the local emergency station. You can listen online. Of course other areas will have their own stations.

If any donation organisation wants specific things, like dog food or towels or whatever, they will ask for it !!!...Otherwise the best thing to give is CASH. Hit 93.1 has a donation button on their web site if you want to help.

REMEMBER there is no such thing as raffles, phone calls, emails, door knocking etc etc...If anyone directly asks you to donate it is a SCAM !!!

Hey Daz, I was spelling your name wrong haha
