Another thing I love about where I live is Christmas Eve the main business area shuts down for the Christmas carnival with old fashioned wheel raffles. You know the type like the one used on hey hey it's Saturday. The town band plays. Everyone goes. And it's a chance for family who have moved away to catch up with of friends.
Our local community radio station has a big presence in the community and during the flooding in 2011 and jan this year we had up to date information for our area that we could rely on as we were forgotten about in the news.

Oh yeah I remembered another one! No rubbish collection. All waste and recycling gets loaded up on a trailer and taken to the tip 10km away once a fortnight or so.

Wow Zeddie, your town must be really small. Even the little town with 500 people I previously lived in had a rubbish collection- and I thought that place was tiny!!

We moved "country" a few years ago......it's THE BEST!
* in winter we get flooded in and can't attend work
* the church ladies sell cakes and slices in the Main Street every Friday for charity.... I can get a bag of fresh limes for $2 plus morning tea
* a bad day is not getting a park right out front of the shop you want to go to
* great social life as everyone attends everything!
* jelly slice in every bakery
* we attend weddings in people's barns on properties owned by the same family for generations-beautiful
The young girl I work with beat all the CWA ladies in the "open scone" section at our local show- 2 years running! It's been very exciting

We live in a small town in rural nsw. We adore the country lifestyle too one of my fav things is that we have a community garden where if you volunteer your time in even the smallest way you can be included in the "harvest" for free. It usually ends up being a small amount of produce each once divided between everybody, but that's only because everybody pitches in. We have a really lovely community atmosphere and we could never live in a city now.

Also, the other month I got severely ill and they left me waiting in emergency so long that I actually could have died. In my haze I could hear that they were seeing people with fractures ahead of me, 5 hours later they took me in and I had deteriorated so badly within that time. But because I was too sick to whinge and be a pain in the ****, they just let me wait.
And that was at a major city hospital that has it's own tv show. To be honest - I don't trust any health care anymore, even in the city!
