2014 919 Wines Durif … tasting notes
In a departure from our usual quick tasting, we are joined by head winemaker and former Australian Winemaker of the Year, Eric Semmler, who takes us through a tasting of his award-winning Durif, a variety that is the flag bearer for the work of his team at this stellar, Riverland winery.
|One of the surprises that galloped at us from out of the blue during our time in the Riverland, was being introduced to equine artist, Yvette Frahn. Her art studio for Spirit Of Equine is a renovated stone tractor shed on a 1011ha farm at Bugle Hut, in Mallee scrub in the south-east corner of the Riverland. Tonight, she joins us to talk about painting horses, art and regional life.|
Paul Hansen is the man you want by your side in the bush. Whether you need to do running repairs on your vehicle, muster goats, catch yabbies or make an award-winning orange cake. Tonight, he takes us into his solitary world and he has some thought-provoking things to share to those of us locked into the always-on, social media world. He is also available to hire if you have any wild goats causing concern, visit him via Kulcurna Homestead.

The news history quiz with Nigel Dobson-Keeffe.
Advertiser June 1950
RENMARK. The town cleric (Mr. e. c. Jarrett) said today that the conversion of the town’s electric supply from DC to AC have revealed many instances of faulty wiring in consumers’ premises. He said that there was a danger of fires being caused or of people receiving severe electric shocks unless these defects were remedied. A letter was received at the last meeting of the corporation from its solicitors, stating that he corporation was not liable for damage occurring through work carried out by private contractors. Mr. Jarrett urged consumers to check their wiring.
Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record -November 1925
Mr. H. Thomas of Tareena, met in Renmark on Saturday, had a tale to tell of a fight between a six-feet six Inch brown snake and a four-feet three-inch iguana, in which the former, after wrapping itself around the snake, prevailed. Every Australian knows that iguanas usually kill snakes, but very few have seen them do it. Though Mr. Thomas has lived in the bush all his life this is the first occasion on which he has seen a fight between them.
The Advertiser March 1950
A few minutes after Mr. J. H. Howie had turned off a valve adjacent to a 30,000 gallon reinforced brick and cement water storage tank on his property yesterday, the tank disintegrated with a muffled explosion and debris was thrown 50 feet. Water poured down the hill, but apart from the loss of the tank no damage was done. Mr. Howie used the tank for storage purposes in conjunction with a newly installed spray irrigation plant. He had returned to his pump house at the bottom of the orchard on the 60 foot channel when the tank exploded. The cause is unknown.
