Ian Cohen, when did you become so cranky? I just got back to Byron and there is no West Byron, no rock wall at Belongil, the roads are getting fixed, town is looking clean, and I even like that crazy bit of art on the way into town!

The bypass that will go through the pig yard (that’s what it was in the 70s) – it’s a bit sad, but it should have happened long ago. Look around you. When I came here in the 70s there were hardly any trees. I hear now you’re even cranky at people like me who have to live in our vans.

Give the kids a break; they are doing a good job. Support them and do something positive with the time you have left on this beautiful planet.
