Golden, i fully concur. Tie the bas***ds to a tree in front of the fire would be too kind.
You are right, Steve. It is a blessing in disguise nobody has been killed.
Yes, there have been injuries, and a fireman was hit by a fire-truck, according to the latest updates i just checked out.
Tally of homes destroyed is now 59. This morning the winds got stronger again, so the arial water bombing is back in full swing, judging by the amount of choppers flying overhead.
The cops have all roads leading into the danger zone blocked off. Even when all finally settles down, they are staying to prevent looters (read scum) from entering the area. All i can say about looters and firebugs, is they make me so angry, cause if i printed my true feelings, i will be banned for sure.

Just came across this vid on youtube which gives you an idea what the poor buggars up the road are going through. The music may/may not be appropriate, but the vid sure is.

Just checked my webmail from the company i work for, and found this email message.
This lady is a very good friend of mine, but works on a different project now, hence was not aware this had happened.

This is an extract from the email sent by the company's CEO.

Christine will be known to many of you – as she is a cheerful, happy to help sort of person.
Christine has lost everything - literally she has her “shirt on her back” and not much else.
The company will be making a financial contribution to assist Christine.
I would ask that you also consider making a personal contribution to help out.
We worked on a number of mine sites together and shared cabs going to/from the airport, as we live close to each other.
She shared her house with her younger sister, who had a baby girl, not long after my grandson was born.

Sure is. When it was a private company, it was very family orientated.
Then they went public, and somehow lost it, trying to maximise profits for share holders.
Problem then was, not much loyalty from the work force, causing a lot of people to find work where they would be happier.
Fortunately now, they realised their best assets are people, and are trying to change it back, making it a happier, more productive company.
