Hi Paula,

I also would be very interested to see what you've got.
Also, is there anyone in Australia (preferably Western Australia) that is
on the mailing list that would be interested in corresponding with me and
giving any advise on setting up a commercial business. Tilapia doesn't seem
to be that well known around these parts and I was wondering if anyone had
tried Black Bream or Silver Perch?

Paula,  Les & Roger are still planning on visiting you on Monday 
afternoon.  What are directions to your place? And phone number?

They will keep it under an hour.  

Thanks so much!  I know Wayne ordered your $200 program.  He's great.
