1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    I didn't make any comment on tackle size. Not a very interesting photo. You might sell more calenders with this one.

    Gee Dave we had a "haus meri" who came in every day to help when we lived in Port Moresby and I can assure you she was nothing like yours...... I was under the impression you were doing it tough Dave, low wages, long hours, thousands of miles from home missing family all those inspiring union meetings !!!!Whistling

    A calendar? But will you be on everybody's back?

    The backs of the T-shirts for the Orlando Conference will have the proposed slogan for the association: ‘There’s something fishy growing on!’.

    I'll be famous! I'm so flattered! :p

    Maybe I should attend.

    Huh? Union meetings? The last union meeting I attended was the W.A. Teacher's Union back in 1984 when the sandgropers were still "Backing Brian Burke" who turned out to be a crook just like his little mate Bondy.

    Yes, we had a haus meri in Moresby too. She was a real gem. Left the house spotless, and looked after the baby when we went out shopping at Steamships or Boroko Foodworld (There was always a chance you would never come home)

    "Doing it tough" ? Ha ha! In Brunei? No one does it tough here. Tax free. Three classes and I teach in a girl's school ... the students are absolute angels.

    The Aussie dollar is a bit of a worry though, makes it expensive to send money home.

    Luk im Yu, Big Pela

    The Orlando Aquaponics Association Conference is less than 6 weeks away

    [​IMG]

    Those who are thinking of attending would do well to book ASAP.

    I will be flying out on the 15th to Orlando. I think there are a few other Aussies attending.
    Members from the USA and Canada....it is a "must do"

    It will be a great conference See details here

    Murray, I would LOVE to go to the convention in Florida. I would LOVE to shake your hand, and buy you an ice cold one!!
    However our TSA has soured my travel plans. I refuse to have my give up a piece of MY liberty for a bit of presumed safety. Maybe next year it'll be in driving range!! California is a loooong way from Florida!!
    Have fun tho,
    Steve
