      I follow a lot of the local papers and local radio stations from around the country on Twitter. Pretty sure that’s where that one came from, unless it was posted on FB by one of my druid friends. I don’t think any of the druids I know actually live in the area, but there are several not far away by Aus standards and the 2014 Assembly will be there in a couple of months.
