Congratulations to such a wonderful message!

I saw a lot of guests on-line today, so maybe this was helpful for some people to find us!

By mere coincidence (or not?) I zapped myself briefly into a documentary about Tasmania yesterday, and thought: Oh look, so this is where Ben lives....!

They showed the little black devils and talked about the catching tumur. What a pity. I couldn't watch all of it, but they spoke about the intact nature and I saw some beautiful scenic views Perhaps it gets repeated today, and I can watch more...

And: Honor to whom honor belongs: Fede wrote the witty post, but I wholeheartedly agree !! :woohoo:

Happy new Year!

Anna


Thanks Anna
It just goes to show, I shouldn't post when I am tired!
Over Christmas we had some friends come to visit and we did a couple of day trips. When my friend Malcolm sends me a disc with the photos he took, I'll upload some of them here.

Thanks again to everyone here at Dhamma Wheel for making this a great place for the discussion of Buddha-Dhamma.

Many thanks have been given here and in other threads to the admins. and moderators, and we are quick to put this appreciation back to all members, who really are the ones who have made this a successful place. Let us not also forget the work one member who volunteered his time to make the Sutta Study group a success:

jcsuperstar (jc brand -- James)

He is the moderator for the Sutta Group. His tireless work and devotion to the Study Group forum has provided many good discussions on the Suttas of the Tipitaka.
