Our Musical Director - a true Maestro! Andrew Wails conducts many choirs in Melbourne - and is credited with creating a rise in the popularity in choral singing in Melbourne. After ten years as Musical Director of the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir, RMPC, a testimonial dinner for him was held May 2006. Many musicians, professors and politicians from high office were there as well as his lovely parents. Of course there were lots of accolades both spoken and sung - some hilarious. Andrew also conducts the Box Hill Chorale, The Australian Children's Choir and the Melbourne University Choral Society choir which I was joining for the Rehearsal "Camp" at Mt Evelyn - the weather was cold and snow was probably falling on nearby Mount Donna Buang!

I have had this sweet little Birman for 13 years and he sleeps under the covers with me in winter. He spent the first 5 years destroying my telephone cords,printer cables, broke 2 big decorative plates sitting on top of a 6 foot bookcase, shredded the new fabric I had upholstered my lounge suite with etc etc , to the tune of over a thousand dollars damage a year at least .. He was a reject kitten not good for showing due to his one brown paw instead of all four being white. He is very thin and has a few health problems now. The flash made him shut his blue eyes.
