Letter #306 - John


Hey VJ,

Firstly, I tried to send this email to the link on the new website, which is incorrect, (@ thevillagejournal instead of the correct @ village journal)

Secondly, my neighbour, Jean McCall, records the rainfall for Goonengerry and used to have her figures included in 'Monthly Rainfall' for a few local areas on the back page of the VJ.

For the past 18 years or so I have been using her data, entering the monthly figures into a spreadsheet which allows me to represent yearly data graphically, which obviously turns the raw, somewhat un-intriguing data into a form which really illustrates the trends for different years.

In the recent VJ upheaval and, thankfully, its re-emergence, the Rainfall is no longer published. Would it be possible to include it again? I know a lot of people who find it not only interesting, but an easy way of accessing some reasonably essential general knowledge.




Editorial #301

Building Community - Tom Shannon

Hi all,

Well, our editor Freedom is overseas so I’m sitting in as guest editor for this edition… and here comes the hard part – writing an editorial!

So I’m sitting here contemplating a few themes: Community. Diversity. Opinion. How to meld them into one harmonious whole?

There’s no doubt that this region is chocka-block with all those things. And one thing that pulls us all together is our sense of Community.
