LOS ANGELES TO TEXAS

On April 14 we flew back to California to deliver two more lectures. Again we stayed at Muriel’s house in La Canada. The first was to the Pasadena Audubon Society. As before, some previous clients who had become friends joined us there, and it was a very convivial meeting. As in my other lectures to Audubon societies I covered some of the other fauna and flora of the Top End, some of my background and that of my family, both Aboriginal and otherwise. The meeting was very well attended.

Adelaide security specialist Vision IP Surveillance is launching the latest range of MOBOTIX high-resolution Internet Protocol (IP) security cameras this Thursday.

The invitation-only seminar will feature presentations from key executives from Germany-based MOBOTIX, which has established itself as a pioneer in the area of high-resolution network security cameras.

The breakfast event will both reveal the latest MOBOTIX products to the industry and introduce Vision IP Surveillance as the MOBOTIX South Australian Partner/Supplier.

Vision IP Surveillance is the specialist company from Adelaide-based security leader John Convill, who also runs the successful Vision Security Systems business.

Mr. Convill has already established MOBOTIX as a significant brand in the SA security sector. The new Gepps Cross office for Bianco Building Supplies is the largest MOBOTIX installation in Australia.

Denise GoodfellowUS audiences have enthusiastically welcomed the sustainable tourism and inter-cultural insights presented in lectures by Australian eco-tourism expert Denise Goodfellow.

Denise, a Darwin-based author who also runs an eco-tourism business, started the US lecture tour earlier this month in the north western state of Washington.

Topics covered during Denise’s two-month lecture tour include the wildlife and wetlands of northern Australia, bird watching in the Top End and indigenous perspectives on conservation.

WASHINGTON

Michael and I left Darwin after midnight on March 20 for the USA.  First stop was Sydney and a wait of a few hours before we boarded a plane for Los Angeles.  This  leg of the flight, across the Pacific, took 13 hours.  It  didn?t seem that long, and time would have gone even faster had we more seat space- the man on Michael?s left was extremely large, and he forced the seat arm between them into Michael.
