          Thanks Sue, Ana had her bad eye done today but still needs lots of drops, her eye is covered but we still need to bring the blood pressure down on the other one, thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.
          Regards.

      A beautiful Cathedral built way back in the gold rush days, well worth another visit.

      Thanks for that link gp, it also refers to the first 30 Australians as being Advisers, that is the unit I ended up belonging to, its AATTV, Australian Army Training Team Vietnam, affectionately known as The Team, our unit was the only Australian unit to be awarded 4 Victoria Crosses, you might be interested in this link.

        That is an outstanding site, Ian. I went into some of the Tributes and photos pages – it brought both smiles, pride and tears. I’ll have to go back again later. Is your pix there?

          There are two primary books on the Team, One is called The Team, the men who persevered, the other is the Team in pictures, I’m pictured in that one after an operation, this link might give you an idea of where I am coming from.
          Cheers

            Thanks mate, only thing I said wrong in the story was that the M16 was issued by the South Vietnamese, I meant to say the Americans.

    A magnificent church. And a decent thing to do with all the gold.

     
    • The Emu

      February 17, 2015 at 11:31 am

      Thanks for the visit mate, definitely a great old church, built in the mid 1800s, overall cost was about $9,000 dollars I believe, was built in the gold rush days here in Australia. Gold did have value back in those days, especially for the miners.
      Cheers

          February 20, 2015 at 6:53 am

          Hi Colline, it certainly is a beautiful cathedral, there are many more around Australia from the 1800s.
          That particular Cathedral was built from gold rush money back in the gold rush days.
          Kind regards

          Greetings Colline, thank you for visiting, we have many old 1800s buildings and churches here in Australia.
          They were built back in the gold rush days of the 1800s, many were designed and built by convicts, who were deported to Australia from England.
          Kindest regards for a beautiful weekend

    This is a very interesting cathedral, Emu. Your pictures show the cathedral in all its beauty. I got curious and googled the above, which gave quite a bit of information about the cathedral. Have you been to Bendigo recently?

        I have been inside it but with a crappy camera unfortunately. I would definitely visit it again. It’s just so beautiful.

          Hi Sue, there is definitely something about the inside of that Cathedral, it just doesn’t like having its picture taken, my internal pics turned out crappy too.
          Regards
