Re: Fw: australia

Hi Andy

I hope you and your family are all safe.  I have a friend who lives in
Chirnside Park with her family, which isn't too far from the fires, so
I am praying for her as well.

Hoping you get some rain soon (yeah, plenty of that in the UK at the
moment, as usual - mainly snow, actually) and that there is no more
loss of life.

Kind regards
