G'day all,

I just got through my letter box a mail out saying the
best way to conserve the marine environment is to
establish marine national parks. With that "I agree"
as it will also hopefully help many sea birds and in
many ways.

BUT! would it stop the shocking and revolting
destruction of the marine seabed from electric cables?
rocking and rolling back and forth on the sea floor,
from the strong tidal movements, stirred up by the
very calm and pleasant and seas we get in bass
straight, just ask any racing yacht sailor worth his
salt about that. Seems also to be getting a tad
rougher over recent years? perhaps that is linked to
"La Nina" or the hole in the sky down south? Stay
tuned folks looks like Spring Street mob has woken up
to the long term maintenance costs. That should do it.

Hope I can pylon a bit more later, we can only hope.

If you did get your copy of the mail out then please
don't forget to put your name, address, etc etc on it
and mail it back as soon as possible, please.

Don't forget that some sea birds can't fly .... and as
"Pen Gwynne" said to me at lunch time, I don't want to
be on any human lunch menu Dad. It is her fishing
grounds we are planning to wreck after all.

JAG Der Whag, with steam from his ears.
