It is a great site and so handy for the Zoo and the Golf Club.

We arrived in Weatherspoon before them so we had a drink and settled in to wait for them -it was such a lovely day, the sun was shinning and it was so warm. LOve it .

They arrived and we carried on drinking and the ordered our meals which soon appeared on the table.

Viv has Cancer as well and has really been through all the hard times of Chemo and has now had a three month breather where she is enjoying Motohoming and holidays just as I do.

We had a lot to natter about and the time flew by.

The two of us went to the ladies –why is it upstairs ha ha !!! so hard for us to climb those stairs.

We left there and walked to the High Street where we had to say our goodbyes and they went to the shops as we came home on the Park and Ride. Not before the camera came out to record the day.

We will next see each other at Peterborough Motorhome Show.

So Ray has had a nice Birthday meal -I still have to buy him a pressie on the Orient Express as they sell lovely gifts.

The sun has shone all day and it was very warm just like a summers day.

They are making a Mini series of Bernie Bantam in Australia. A much admired man who fought a legal battle and won.

A very brave warrior ——-

asbestos battle

Aussie battler Bernie Banton’s fight against the big corporation James Hardie is being brought to life in an ABC mini-series called Devil’s Dust.

Based on the book, Killer Company, written by ABC journalist Matt Peacock, the two-part series has actor Anthony Hayes taking on the role of Banton, the James Hardie employee who battles for compensation for asbestos victims, in what became a ‘David and Goliath’ story.

Don Hany plays Adam Bourke, a character who must question his morality when he becomes aware that one of Australia’s most successful and respected companies manufactures a product that may kill thousands of people.

Ewen Leslie takes on the role of Peacock, who revealed the evidence of the link between asbestos and cancer, and then spent years exposing the shocking truth and helping to bring justice to the victims.

“This is a powerful, inspiring drama which has attracted an outstanding cast and creative team. ABC TV is proud to present the human story at the heart of this ongoing national tragedy,” said Carole Sklan, ABC TV head of fiction.

With 60,000 Australians likely to die of asbestos-related diseases by 2030, the ABC says Devil’s Dust is the intensely personal story of three very different men whose lives and careers are bound together by a tragedy that becomes a scandal, and then a fast-moving battle through the corridors of corporate, political and media power.

Production of Devil’s Dust begins mid March.
