'We had five flour mills in my hometown, and none of them were made of brick. They eventually all burned down'
problem with our timber down here is ...well...it' s Feckin' Gnarly ,twisted and rock hard.
But we do have plenty of Clay ,beautifull ,fine grained, Red Red Clay.(Terra Rossa) and that's rock hard as well.when i dug out my Back yard i was getting sparks .....but this has just stirred a thought. i should document our Red Brick .it is rather iconic around here.
