When I started this blog it was with some trepidation as I outlined in my very first post, http://www.jennifermarohasy.com/blog/archives/000549.html .
And I wondered whether anyone would comment. I like comments because I like to know what I might have got wrong, and what I might have got right and I like to read different perspectives and have my ideas challenged.
Louis Hissink definately gets the prize for the most comments at this blog.
Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cringe, sometimes I learn something, when I read the comments from Louis.
If you do a google search on Louis you will find comment that includes:
“Regarded as the best diamond field geologist in Australia.”
“His free time is spent researching ancient history, writing comments on environmental or mining matters and, as frequently happens, re-installing the operating system on the computer. He is a book worm and writes book reviews for Henry Thornton,
Louis has won a prize for posting the “worst argument” against global warming. Given the judge (Tim Lambert) listed other contenders as
McKitrick & Michaels, Baliunas and Soon – he can perhaps feel honoured.
There was a period recently when there were no comments from Louis. I gather he had headed off bush for 3 weeks to Wooleen,
Louis has written about Wooleen:
“I think it (the homestead) cost 145,000 pounds to build a century ago – wool really was the go then. Not now any more – current stocking is 2000 head from the usual 14,000. Drought is in 5/7 year cycle, so another 2 years of pain apparently.”
Thanks Louis for your contribution, for taking the time to comment.
