Welcome to Catalogue #216 of March 2019. Whilst it’s only a short list this time, there are some memorable titles on it. Here in the West we’ve had some scorching weather (as February always is) but nothing to match the crazy weather in the Eastern states from floods and bushfires. The loss of life is always worrying especially losing thousands of head of live stock to floods. And when most of Qld and northern NSW are in severe drought, along comes serious floods and no new dams to fill. Whoever decided we didn’t need any new dams after ‘those that know’ advocated they be built have failed the pub test and need to be thrown out on their ears. At times like this I always wonder about the great books that are lost in floods and fires. Never to be rescued and gone forever. That can’t be replaced. In the meantime lets hope that losses in the recent fires and floods are limited to replaceable items and not rare books. As usual this catalogue is dedicated to servicemen/women who aren’t travelling too well. Also for those on Active Service as we speak. Come home safely. Cheers and Via con Dios  M&J
