Fresh produce in dayboro. It comes up a lot.
Getting local produce, support local buy local. The topic of buying local produce has come up again on one of the FB pages. This is what I think. There are several hobby farms around in Dayboro, and several have attempted to sell their produce either online or via a stall beside the road…. only a few succeeded. We have Love Living Farm who “We are a local farm using organic farming methods to grow pesticide free fruit and vegetables as well as other whole foods. #eatmoreveg” not sure if they still active as their online presence seems to be stalling. We have Karen’s Grow Your Own, a fantastic service ” Assisting people in the Dayboro and surrounding area in starting, regenerating or maintaining a chemical free sustainable vegetable garden.” who can help you establishing your own veggie garden. From what I gather you only have to get it out of your own garden. And there be heaps more, all we need really is a “Veggie Broker”. This is where “action jackson” (well that is how I call him) from Jackson Produce could come in. I had the pleasure working with him at the start. He knows his veggies. He would […]
How to get on the internet in Dayboro and Surrounds.
Often discussed in several facebook pages, so I figured lets get it all together. First off a disclaimer…. I do not sell ADSL, Satelite or other connectivity services. I have in the past when Avelon Downs was developing, in those days I provided a Free WiFi hotspot, but that is 12yrs ago and Telstra and the like do it now. I have no gain in posting this information, I merely want to help those in Dayboro without bias. I believe in honesty, and I do (sort of) care. (For this reason I do not post this information on our company site) The information on this site is based upon my view, experience and qualifications. Where appropriate reference to the source is made. I do get a lot of information from Whirlpool.net.au of which I been an active member since 2002. Discussing telco technologies and other IT related matters. The connection types: Wired into your house, either by phone line or fibre. WiFi type connection, this is NOT mobile. Satellite this is with a dish. Mobile data. (I will try to explain each of them individually with references as we go along) Wired into your House Each connection type has […]
WiFi type connection, this is NOT mobile. In Dayboro and surrounds
WiFi or better known as fixed wireless in case of the NBN/internet stuff, if you scroll down on that page you see that most towers only reach a 5-6km distance. As with all non wired services, there is the “line of sight” issue, this means you need to be “seen” by the nearest fixed wireless base station. These could be hidden behind trees so you cannot see them from your place. Most likely they be on high places, like buildings and mountains, so what about Dayboro? I do not believe we have a fixed wireless tower near by based upon, the roll-out. If you want to know more about that, just punch in your address on the www.finder.com.au/nbn-tracker site. This is not the official NBN site, but it provides more detailed information and substance, this is where most of us geeks get the information from if you ask. But what about that big tower at Rush Creek? That tower is a mobile phone tower, not enabled for NBN. It has Optus, Telstra and Vodafone transmitters, no NBN. That is all to be said about Fixed Wireless really. It is not available in Dayboro, yet. According to oztowers there are proposals […]

I figured lets start with a picture…, OZTowers.com has a comprehensive list of tower locations and who of the telco’s are on that tower. At the moment the Tower in Rush Creek…. you can see it from all directions when you approach Dayboro.. it is on top of the hill. This tower services Telstra, Optus and Vodafone using the following frequencies.

Updates to event scripts.
As you might have noticed, old events where still listed on the events page…. We need to update the script to prevent that from happening, and we will :-). This morning we tested the sql and it seems to work so stay tuned.
Dayboro Progress Association answers the call.
Next month we welcome everyone who has a back yard veg garden or even a great fruit tree to share their excess produce at the new Fruit and Veg Swap Stall! For years there have been discussions about a local fruit shop, farmers market, a barter site – well this is all of those things, tied in within our monthly Dayboro Market. Jacki Hinchey from Blue Dog Farm at Ocean View has volunteered to coordinate the first two markets, and to talk with local gardeners about what they would like to do to grow the stall into a well supported thriving hub of trade on the first Sunday of the month! Jacki said that “People need not be shy about the quality of their produce – if it was grown with love, it will be good enough!” She thinks that children may be the most motivated entrepreneurs at the stall, and that at this stage we don’t need to be too worried about the ‘world gone mad’ health rules and regulations for now. Just turn up with your box of lemons, passionfruit and silverbeet, a gold coin for stall hire, and we will do some good old fashioned trading!” […]

Some businesses are still suffering from good intentions
Spring cleaning at dayboro.info business directory. Over the years the spider webs moved in, in the spirit of Halloween it is time to clean it out.
Xmas season is upon us…. What are YOUR opening TIMES.
Dayboro Businesses and surrounds opening hours. We all know how hard it is to find shops that are open during the holiday season, for this reason I like to invite all Dayboro and Surrounding businesses to email the opening hours. A post will be created with your specific opening hours, people who are interested then can search for your business and find the special opening hours. HOW COOL is that, watch the video. [embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlutmj8h5ds[/embedyt] The idea is that your use your email (system) to send an email to email@example.com in the subject column of your email you put [local business] exactly like that. We then receive an email (funny how that works), the Dayboro Website will then look at the email, create automatically a post in the Local Business category. All posts. will have the same post title “xmass and newyears 2016 opening hours”. This makes it easier for us. But that is not ALL. To make it easier for the visitors I setup a search like this. The visitor can enter your business name in the search box and all the references to your business will show up. For example I am looking for an plumber in dayboro. Enter Plumber […]

It appears your website isn’t indexed by any of the three major search engines
Dayboro.info not indexed. Whaaaaaat ! Dayboro.info not indexed , well that ain’t be good, it simply cannot be good…. What is happening? First lets find out what is index? Site index is a term used in forestry to describe the potential for forest trees to grow at a particular location or “site.” Site is defined as “The average age of dominate and/or codominate trees of a even-aged, undisturbed site of intolerant trees at a base age”; furthermore, the word site is used in forestry to refer to a distinct area where trees are found. Site index is used to measure the productivity of the site and the management options for that site and reports the height of dominant and co-dominant trees in a stand at a base age such as 25, 50 and 100 years. For example, a red oak with an age of 50 years and a height of 70 feet (21 m) will have a site index of 70. Site index is species specific. Common methods used to determine site index are based on tree height, plant composition and the use of soil maps. (source wikipedia) Ok, that is not right either…. BACKUP THE TRUCK…. Search engine indexing is […]
Dayboro Information website statistics
Dayboro (info) is insane. There are many sites, there are many people and there are many claims. Time to put some facts to the fiction. Should I get listed? Your choice, you do not have to. Does anybody visit dayboroinfo.com.au Well funny you ask, since we changed the name to dayboroinfo.com.au and consolidated the older sites like dayboro.info, mydayboro.com.au and the like we got some interesting traffic and statistics. I believe it is due all the “free-publicity” we get from the local news paper and the local social media. People are looking for a single source of truth I think. Looking for some honest to the point advice and no bull advertising. As you can see below, the numbers speak for them self, it goes up and up. These numbers are made up by repeat visits and referrals, not only Google searches. What does this mean for a business in Dayboro? It COULD mean that your chance to be-found gets increased. I have an unique approach to get your events and business name out there, it is based upon some experience I gained over the years. It is also because I care. Apart from that it is FREE. Anyway it […]

Is it OK, that when Political Party candidates become the “cheerleaders” of the electorate, politicians bashing becomes a national sport? I for one like to dish out criticism it is easier, I do try to remain objective and track accountability. A lot of times we get promised stuff and it never seems to materialize or being pushed further and further out. The Pine Rivers electorate candidates are no different.
I have a dream…. Williams street Dayboro
What is happening…. We all seen the consultation update, in respect to improving pedestrian traffic and flow in our town center. The consultation in my view was pretty good, sure there are some people who believe that 200 replies in Dayboro is still not enough consultation or, that not enough awareness was created. By now it will be obvious to you that I disagree with those views. So what is it we looking at? Proposed changes Williams Street. Consultation Leaflet (003) I am going to take that one step further. Build it and they will come…. (walking). Although the above proposed changes are great… it is in my view the MINIMUM. Why not go all the way… make it friendly. In the illustration below you see an option we could pursue, to make the whole area through town a “pedestrian priority” zone. Make it 40km…. WHAAAAT. I can only imagine the comments So lets have a look at the picture…. I believe, reducing the speed through town will actually achieve the following: The introduction of Zebra Crossings has caused a bit of a stir, and personally I am not in favor for them either… HOWEVER, due to our general ignorance […]
Lead Twilight Markets and why you should support it.
Imagine… a twilight market or a twilight event on a Friday afternoon, just at the right time when you come from home (most drive through the town), and you can meander through some stalls, get some food and enjoy the company of your family and other Dayborians.
Would you help your Neighbour, if something odd is about?
Ocean View Action Group, is trying to stop a development of Lot 3 Ocean View Road, Ocean View, all the details are in application DA/34035/2017/V2E on Lot 3 S312581. Nothing wrong with that you would say… and perhaps you are right both ways. Nothing wrong with new development and additional stuff and nothing wrong with trying to stop it. We have the opportunity to have our say…. personally I think there are some odd things with this..
