    Visiting a local mall yesterday ( Erina Mall - Central Coast au) while having coffee I picked up a copy of the free local paper and on the front page, a photo of a guy with an Inspire 1 took up most of the page.
    We have a had a few shark attacks around the coasts of Aussie and obviously - a lot of public concern - perhaps nothing to do with our Summer about to start and with it.. the tourist industry goes into hyper drive - anyway, it seems the local Life Guards officials are looking at calling in "drones" to take a look out over the sea on shark patrol
    Taking it that to get an helecopter and crew out on shark look out costs $$$$1000s an hour, I would say a few of our certificated brethren are about to get some summer work - or having fun while others cover the cost!

    Now that's what we want..positive spin.

    Edit......Sorry....had to alter a word.....PUBLIC ....not concerns about body hair! ( who noticed!)
    L of a mistake....

    Practicality of MRs will eventually win out but to reach that tipping point will require many good Shepard's to help show the way! Fly pro everybody...
