    @3 Be nice...
    back in 'Straya up near Chillyton on Campo Frank we have a lot of lightning strikes... had about 20 hectares ( and the down wind neighbour about 50 ) burnt out last summer after a 'strike..... I've never lost a cow...

    Had a near miss in Anto with my other home the other day... maybe that was a warning from the gods about poaching scallops in the marine reserve at the Rinconado a few weeks earlier... mind you they were very good poached.....
