It has been raining in Robertson

It has been raining in Robertson since Monday. We had 10 mm on Monday, 40 mm by Tuesday morning and it was pissing down (a technical term in Robertson for heavy rain) when I left Robbo this afternoon. It is so good to see, as the local creeks have been bone dry, recently.

I am now in Sydney for the launch tomorrow of the Australian Water Network by Maude Barlow. This will be a private event for prospective members only, at this stage. But we hope that a number of friends will gather with us, to "launch the good ship AWN".

Maude will be with us tomorrow, as our international Patron, seeing as she is national chairperson of The Council of Canadians and founder of the Blue Planet Project. She has been appointed the first UN Senior Advisor on water issues by Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, President of the 63rd session of the United Nations.

I have heard Maude Barlow speak on different issues before, and she is very articulate, passionate and informed. It should be an excellent session. Good luck with the launching of AWN.
