Hi Leigh and Ron,
yes, Ron is correct in pointing this out, not all parcels are inspected.
However, I always insist that proper requirements are adhered to when
sending into Aust., as quarantine restrictions are very important and vital
to protesct us from unwanted pests.
I am always happy to see that a parcel has been inspected. It means that
they are doing the job properly.
Ron, lovely weather here at present. Lovely warm days and we have had some
rain (much needed).
Bill Richardson,
Ixia King
