Specialising in the human experience of Living with prostate cancer – warts and all

Caringbush has been sold

with 2 comments

Today, we signed the contract on the sale of our 10 acre property at Whitfield.  The purchaser has agreed to the full price  advertised but the contract is not unconditional until the 18th June.

This move has been brought on by my gradual deteriration as Pauline does not want to be stranded here after I am gone.  My requirements are simple; I need access to good paliative care; I will not accept internet service less than what I have, and I need a place where there are no physical demands on me like lawn mowing and cutting wood for the fire.

We are looking at a couple of places over at Tocumwal and have to get busy to move out by the 27th August – settlement day.  We are looking at buying into a retirement lifestyle property where you own the house but not the land.  This is amenable to living on the pension and providing Pauline with her freedom when I end my run.  The last few weeks have been so traumatic, I will not be disappointed if the sale falls through.

As you are probably aware, I have not been up to regular posting and I expect that, after I move, King Valley Online may well fade away or change it’s name to something like ‘Tocumwal Talking”

I have spent the last couple of weeks building a new website called South of the Border.  It is a compilation of citizen journalism in the North East region and publishes headlines and teasers from the local blogs plus one from hte Yarra Valley.  It is trying to encourage citizen journalism and has a page wit an editor where anyone can submit a post.  It also has a range of pages covering classified ads, business listings, regional events along with a few other features.  Go take a look and give me some feedback.

  1. It’s good Greg. It took a while to download with all the ads & stuff and I don’t think the Twitter comments in the sidebar add anything to it whatsoever. I still can’t see the point of Twitting, or Tweeting, or Twating, or whatever it’s called.

    Anyway, congratulations on the quick sale. Are you up to a final bloggers meet before you go? What about the others though? It’s about time they got off their Twitters and over to Milawa to give you a decent send off (to Tocumwal, I mean). Cheers.

    • Thanks for your feedback Ray. Normally, it should not take that long to load as I have cached the pages. You must have hit it between modifications. By taking the feeds of the blogs, it acts as a headline blog referring readers on to the various sources. If you want your full article to appear, change your RSS to show the full article.

      You might like to add a link in the business listing for Grevillia Gardens and a few classifieds.

      I will most certainly appreciate a final bloggers meet before we move out on 27th August. Depending upon the circumstances, we might make it at Caringbush.
