DOGS could be the key to early cancer de­tec­tion thanks to their in­cred­i­ble sense of smell.

AN­I­MALS are Gods An­gels on earth. — Natalie Zuk

OUR lit­tle poo­dle cross could al­ways pick up my hus­band’s di­a­betic in­fec­tions (feet legs hands) be­fore Dr picked them up .. our GP chris­tened him Dr Jack. — Rose Water­son I can vouch for this per­son­ally. — Ross Naidoo

SAM Gi­acca doesn’t be­lieve fruit va­ri­eties should be owned. That’s why he’s teamed up with Craig Har­ri­son to start an old va­ri­ety ap­ple or­chard.

GREAT to see, and also bring back the old va­ri­eties of grapes. Mus­ca­tel, Waltham Cross, Pur­ple Cor­ni­chion etc. We miss their flavour, juici­ness, and su­perb taste.

The Gran­ite Belt was the home of these nat­u­ral de­li­cious fruits for many decades. — An­gelo Pen­nisi

AB­SO­LUTELY! Top of the list is a Jonathan, fol­lowed by a Graven­stein, and a proper De­li­cious. Then a Granny Smith that is still on the tree when the first frost hits. AND, a de­cent pear of any va­ri­ety that re­ally is “this sea­son”. Some­times “progress” is not pro­duc­tive. — He­len Bain

GOOD on you Sam. We need more peo­ple like you. — Brenda John­son

WHAT a great idea, we tried some ap­ples at the ap­ple and grape fes­ti­val around 12 years ago.....never seen them since, they were fab­u­lous tast­ing fruit — Pat Arena

OMG.... brings back mem­o­ries of the beau­ti­ful graven­stein ap­ple.... so juicy & tasty ... — Chris M Robert­son

I AGREE with An­gelo ,my dad grew all the best old va­ri­eties of ap­ples and stone fruit at Bal­lan­dean. The fruit now have no flavour and they don’t keep for long, and the Bal­lan­daen grapes were the best. Go for it guys. — An­nette Young
