Money is simply a medium for exchange. Prior to 700 BC, bartering was the customary means for exchange and trade. If you were a baker, you exchanged your bread for meat or shoes. But what happened if the shoemaker had too much bread? The solution was to find a commodity with an agreed value that could be exchanged equally in trade. And so the first coins were minted. Money could then serve three purposes: first, it could be used as a medium for exchange; secondly, it provided a standard of value by which goods and services could be measured; and, thirdly, it could be saved and used in the future.
The Nullabor Links is in the Australian Outback and stretches 1365km (850 miles) from Ceduna in South Australia, along the Eyre Highway to Kalgoorlie- Boulder in Western Australia’s Goldfields. Project Manager Alf Caputo was one of many enthusiastic golfers to tackle the course on the opening day.
I am sure we all agree that water is an useful and essential commodity in our lives. We turn on the tap – and take a shower. We turn on the tap – and fill the urn. We wash and clean with it. We cannot live without it. It is essential to our survival. Very few of us have any problems with the usage and value of water. We do not run around the shower saying, “Oh! I don’t deserve water”. So why should money be any different? It is an important and essential commodity in our lives; we use it as an exchange system to ensure that our needs are met and we can lead happy and enriched lives. We cannot live without it. It is essential to our survival.
How big are they? The females are usually bigger than males and they are most often found to be around 6 or 7 cm long when including their legs. If you put this into perspective you will realize that a female funnel web spider is found to be about the same width as the palm of a person’s hand.
The communities at the bottom of the river are not angry at lack of rain but at bureaucratic delays and lack of both decision making and information release. The river is unbelievably low on the upriver side of the barrages that are supposedly in place to keep the river water fresh. There are huge islands and beaches and the jetties and bridges clearly show the normal water level. I did not see all the birds I am used to in the formerly magnificent Ramsar listed wetlands. People were playing cricket on the riverbed and land sailing since water sailing is out for all but shallow boats and one narrow channel. Should they have regattas like the one at Alice Springs on the dry riverbed was a question asked?

Known for its wines, beaches and fishing, this is the ultimate holiday destination, and great for all the family. Enjoy bushwalking in the national parks, or head to the coastline to see penguins at Granite Island or whales at Encounter Bay. The diving is incredible, with shipwrecks lining the coast, and it is just as enjoyable to soak up the sun on the mainland at one of the many camping grounds dotting the coast. Stay for a week or a few days, and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of South Australia’s most beautiful peninsula.
