Of course Parkes main claim to fame is " The Dish"
. Just get the feeling the town is struggling a bit, the drought and horse flu might be taking a toll. Doesn't seem to be as vibrant as last time, and the shopping centres have that air of doing it tough. They put on a few things at different times of the year, a country music muster and an Elvis week, so they are really trying!
Oh, and about the Newell, there was a bit on TV tonight, over 1000 B doubles use the road each day, thats why all the towns are lining up for a bypass, and why I don't particularly like driving on it!!!!
