Previously Jeff was logging observations using my user id and since all internet has been restored post-Yasi - the system won't let him in. He has just applied for separate log-in but his posts will not follow those done already?

Yes, I noticed the cyclone ;-) So glad you're house is still good and I can't imagine the damage up there. Love the Cassowary posts though and a quick update with maybe one photo of the damage would be very interesting. Wishing you well..... Alan

aha - yes, dealing with TC Yasi has taken up a fair bit of time as it went right over our house (amazingly left it standing). Jeff has a few sightings and photos since but has not yet found time to enter them. don't worry, we'll get back to it!
