I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

I haven't been there for a while, however I thought they loved it up there. I knew them when they lived in Windang, prior to buying Billabong Blue. A bit sad.

Well great news... BB has been sold and New Owners want to keep it open to the Public... But I saw THAT they are asking the public to 'Invest ' in the place...Hmmmmm...

Thanks for the update Gemster, interesting about the 'investment' bit, it may be nothing more than investing time in the place, ie, visiting. Suspicious old bastards like us tend to think otherwise sometimes....

Well maybe..... New info has come to light and I don't like it at all... But lets just hope the new owners are out for the good of things...

No worries,
I think the Facebook URL was way too long and contained a whole lot of special characters for the Forum software to display it properly.
Here's to hoping the Billabong Blue site and business continues to profitably operate into the future with a fair and solid business model.

Glad Bill and Rhonda did not sell and hope they continue on in good health. :) :)
