    Hello - I'm Jenny - I am an AA - it's been two weeks since my last observing.
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP.....
    I live in a small shack on a hillside - with my goats and sheep.
    I stuff olives for a living.

    C'mon - I've been around too long for that to work.

    Queensland is 3 times as big as Texas - Saying I live in Queensland is similar to saying I live in Europe - it stretches from 10*S to 28*S 138*W to 153*W and is mostly open country. Population is about 3.5 million which means there's a lot of elbow room, about a square kilometre each. Though my home is only on 1.25 scres (5000sq metres)
    I live in the south East corner of Queensland which has 90% of the state's population.
    There are more kangaroos than people in this state.

    We have more mineral resources in Queensland than there are in Asia and grow more rice than them. We grow 80% of the chick peas and 40% of the cotton it may be more - I'm not sure.
    A lot of the grain grown here is grown in paddocks of over 3 sq miles - 2000 acres.
    Light pollution in this corner of the state is bad in town, but diminishes quickly out of town as it's not feasible to light the highways too much.
    Queensland is self sufficient in every resource - we don't need to import anything. But we do. Silly really. Mind you, they don't grow gooseberries here as far as I know.

    Food would be better if we didn't keep exporting the best stuff to NSW who have more money than we do, but can't farm worth a spit - nor can they play footy either. NAna
