Ranger Nick Top of the morning to you, brother. How you going, mate I am on top of the world. What about you? I am unreal as always, Well that's good Now. Let's do a little bit of a quick catch-up. We're into 2021. And things are sort of getting back to what we think might be a new normal. What have you been up to? And what shows and events have you been at so far this year? Whoo, mate her tell you what the last? What is it now 16- 18 months has been a real slog. I mean, here everyone's had concerns, and all the rest of them no Robinson Caruso. We've certainly hit the ground running. But in that time, when we had nothing on no events to attend, and things like we were pretty well-grounded. I thought, gee, Wizz better do something about income. And I think I'm too grumpy to work for someone else. So
we started looking at other things to what we could do. So we did a bit of live streaming and stuff like that with animal Action Day and so forth.
We've launched a new product currykits.com.au. If you love your curries, it's good for your immune system get into this stuff. It's absolutely beautiful restaurant quality, easy cooking, do it at home, or on the road in your camp ovens and all that absolutely fantastic flavors you very good, very good. Very, very good.

Maybe not all there's probably a few that are on bits of paper because we were up the paddock or whatever and got misplaced and not used.
Probably a good place for some of them. But
mate Look, just just every Saturday morning we get together have a bit of a chat about the camp oven cooking, on West Bremmer radio now, an online radio site. So if you're interested in seeing what's going on some great stuff on me.
