I should have been able to figure that out about multiple pics, lol (blushes) . . . . .

btw, the whole town isn't covered in vines or western architecture, so no need for jealousy - most of it is quite ordinary. Now that I'm an expert, I'll take some pics of the ordinary bits too . . . but I am very lucky to live in a town that has those special parts :)))

I come from a city in New South Wales called Orange. Orange is about 4 hours from Sydney, and we grow all sorts of fruits here, but we're well known for our wines. There's about 38,000 people in the city. I work in a small town called Molong, which is about 1/2 hour from Orange, and there's about 2100 people there.

Obviously you can see where Orange is in relation to Sydney on this map, but I've put an Orange dot that represents Molong.

This is Lake Canobolas, which is about 15 minutes out of town:

And as for Molong... well there's not a lot there, except for an awesome gelati place!

Yes Kerttuli, have photos in photobucket, the problem is on the message board, the tool bar that contains all the icons etc is missing. I thought for a long time that it was me. Zhivvy and achtung75 explained how to do it. It was then I realised the whole toolbar had gone. I can post photos on the blogs because it pops up there. I can't even access my home page unless I go a long way round. It all disappeared a while ago.
