Thanks AJ. Yes, the fires were close enough to me. There's a photo in my albums showing the one I went to on the first day - it was about ten minutes drive in the pumper. The worst fires were all fairly close to the suburbs of Melbourne. If the wind had stayed in the north the fires could well have spotted into the suburbs.

G'day AJ. Just visiting and skipped through your music - Amazing Grace always grabs me! I know it's a Christian Hymn (and an old one!) and I'm not religious at all, but it's a fantastic bit of music. I went youtubing to catch some other versions - the bagpipes are the ones for me. Scottish ancestry and ex-Army? Probably both!
Little River? We have a Little River Fire Brigade here, all volunteer too. And it's the place the Little River Band was named after. Unfortunately they don't have a website.
