A local single’s group raised $130.00 hosting a morning tea with
 more money donated online.
It’s a fun way to raise money for cancer research, prevention
 and support services for cancer patients and their families.

Tuggerah
Tuggerah, Central Coast, NSW

This is a great video with a play on the place names of the 
Central Coast north of Sydney.
Kombi > WORD.

We have been getting drenched here on the coast but the weather man has promised us 5 days of some Sunny periods. Whoopie!
I feel sad for all the people living inland New South Wales who are being inundated with flood waters.

Avoca Beach Rock Shelf
I had been out visiting friends when I came across this Water Dragon lizard which had been sheltering under my car to get away from the rain, these lizards are everywhere on the Central Coast especially around the Kincumber area.

Tuggerah Lakes was in flood in June.

Here the Lake has encroached onto the picnic area.

In the water are several surfers battling the unruly, churning waves.
We have had extreme torrential rain here on the Coast and it will continue until the weekend. Some areas are flooded and around Tuggerah Lake are sandbag stations to help householders keep the floodwater from entering their properties.

Aussie Bloggers Conference 2011
I had a truly fabulous day yesterday met up with some lovely bloggers (like meeting celebrities) who I had been commenting with online and chuckling over their Tweets over the years. Completely forgot to take photos as the conference was so well run, I had to concentrate on who was speaking and watching the room’s activities. Loved the meet’n’greet game at the start

Maybe someone else can list all contents as I’ve had to call in the SES because the ceiling in my bedroom now has a hole in it as a result of the horrendous deluge of rain we have had these past two days in Sydney and the NSW Central Coast. More here

The ceiling in my bedroom now has a hole in it as a result of the horrendous deluge of rain we have had these past two days in Sydney and the NSW Central Coast. More here
Thank goodness, I was in the lounge room on Twitter reading the Tweets from Ausblogcon2011 when I heard a thump sound, going to investigate I found my carpet and dressing table awash in water and bits of plaster which had fallen from the ceiling. Whoops!.
Photobucket
It looked like the gutters had not been able to handle the amount of water rushing into them and it had backwashed into the ceiling cavity. So calls to SES and my insurance company while trying not to stress (brief meltdown) but it looks like I will be off work tomorrow while I call in a roofer to check roof and plasterer to replace part of the ceiling.
Update
The SES (State Emergency Service) came climbed up on the roof

– no broken tiles –
so cleaned out some of the guttering, no tarp to cover,

let me take their photos, packed up their truck and left.
I have edited this post and put my AusBlogCon2011 post on my other blog. Here
