David’s return thanks
I WOULD like to take this
opportunity, if I may, to show my
appreciation to those businesses
that participated in the ‘Dear Da-
vid’ feature in last week’s edition
of the Producer (Jan 3).
Many thanks everyone for the
kind sentiments and best wishes
It has been an absolute pleasure
to work with all of you over the
years, and be able to, hopefully,
have helped in some way in pro-
moting your businesses.
I wish you every success for
My heartfelt thanks also to
my colleagues (you are still col-
leagues as officially I’m on leave)
at the Producer who were moti-
vated to put the feature together,
and lay it out so perfectly.
Next to exchanging school
books for that first job, the most
radical career change for most
people is leaving the workforce
It certainly is proving that way
I secured my first job, office
boy in a flour mill, at the tender
age of 16 years and one month,
after dropping out of school.
45 years, two careers, and a few
countries later, I walked into the
Producer office for an interview
with then owner Margaret Manuel
and a skinny 20 something young
man named Andrew.
Thank you both for showing
faith in a 61-year-old.
The last 15 years have been
the most enjoyable of my work-
ing life and, for that, I thank all
my colleagues at the Producer
and Two Wells Echo, both past
It has been a great experience
working with you all and I value
that experience and your friend-
ships very highly.
Aspecial thanks toAndrew and
Merridy Manuel who, as well as
being supportive and appreciative
bosses, have also become firm
Thanks Andrew for showing
me you can run a very successful
business, both professionally and
efficiently, and have a lot of fun
Good luck with your new
To my current Producer and
Echo colleagues: I will miss you.
Thank you for your support,
your light-hearted banter, your
coffee making, your polite laugh-
ter at my ‘dad’ jokes, and keeping
me feeling young, but most of all,
for your friendship, which I will
Just remember, when you see
me coming, put the kettle on!
Climate change comment
I saw the most disturbing story
I’ve read for a long time question-
ing the climate change agenda
written by Hedley Scholz (Dec
19 Plains Producer).
I’m assuming you are from
Egypt because you are certainly
living in de-Nile.
I also assume you dislike these
young whipper snappers with
their annoying opinions and those
damn teachers who should be
administering more swings of the
cane than teaching our children
such nonsense as global warming.
Global warming is no longer
a question but a fact.
As for Al Gore, truth hurts,
I guess you have an issue with
wealthy, smart people and so
Look out Mr Attenborough,
The younger generation is just
trying to fix the mistakes of the
previous one, something your
children’s grandchildren will be
very grateful for.
As for being on the verge
of insanity and national mental
health issues, should we just wait
until the cows are pre-cooked in
the paddock as a result of global
temperatures becoming so hot.
Now that’s insane.
The planet needs our help and
teachers need our support, neither
need our criticism.

Letters to the editor
I get confused with the word ‘service.’
Federal, State, City and Public Service
This is not what I thought service meant.
But today I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he
had bought a bull to service his cows.
It all came clear to me.
Now I understand what all of those agencies are doing to us.
