    Hi from Townsville, Queensland, Australia

    Hi,

    I am the project planner at a residential development in Townsville. I transferred up here within the same company from Brisbane and am keen to get more involved in planning and urban design issues. I hope that this forum helps me keep touch with issues that I might otherwise not hear about in North Queensland.

    Looking forward to much discussion...

    G'day and welcome. (Did I say that right? )

    Glad to have you here. We have a few other Aussies already. So I hope you feel right at home.

    Hey another person from Down Under. Welcome.

    If you want to know where I am do the following

    Hold your right hand in front of your face with your palm facing towards you.

    Now look at the lower left hand corner of your hand an look for the fleshiest spot.

    That is about where I am.

    Maybe the most any of us can expect of ourselves isn't perfection but progress.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"
