I love the desert thunder storms. We used to sit on the verandah in Kalgoorlie and in the distance you could hear the rumble of the Esperance Doctor as it rolled towards town and then the rain pelted down.

Derek the two worst electrical thunderstorms that I have ever experienced were both out in the Goldfields. Dunno why that is...

Google produces only one Lloyd Weeber, so I am the real one!

"Weeber" is a fairly rare name in New Zealand. Any connection to Lloyd-Webber is coincidental.

Weeber is a Stuttgart name. When Durer created the first German Dictionary after the invention of the printing press he got rid of double "ee"s from the German language. I guess my ancestors in Stuttgart were conservatives and kept the double ee. I would also guess there are a lot of German Webers that are also related to me, so if you go back far enough Lloyd-Webbers could be relatives, if the name Webber came from Germany.
