Re: Wildlife Corner

Oh my goodness, they have just presented Harry with a special pair of budgie smugglers with his name on them, the pattern is either the Union Jack or the Aussie flag, not sure. Also a big jar if Vegemite with his name on it. :laugh5:

Re: Wildlife Corner

Just sat here tonight watching Tele and noticed something out of the corner of my eye. Bl**dy Nora, what is that? Is that a giant centipede, I've no idea but I hope it doesn't have a mate!
Very unsettling.

Re: A SENSE OF PLACE.

Sometimes it's hard to have a sense of place when you've been ripped away from your culture. There's always questions that pop-up every now and then like 'Where and how would I be living if we had stayed in England?' I've been here in Oz for decades, but sometimes that's just it, I'm just Here. Ever...

Is it true that newspaper ink never dries?
I normally keep an old newspaper for wrapping up bits and pieces and the print still leaves smudges on my fingers.

How can something have so many names? When is Devon known as Belgium? When it's the name of a sandwich meat. Known as Devon in many parts of Australia, it's called Belgium sausage in Tasmania, polony in Western Australia, Fritz in South Australia, Windsor sausage in Queensland, Strasburg in Victoria...

I called my daughter Chelsea because I wanted her to remember that she has English blood from both her parents and all of her grandparents . Another choice for her name was Brooke, or Dale if she turned out to be a boy. Her middle names (2) come from each of her Great Grandma's. She was the only stu...

Not clothes but I remember putting on a wedding ring (I think our Mothers) when I was 7 years old, and then found that it wouldn't come off. Our Great Uncle Harold had to get it off using a file. I still have a tiny feint scar.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

End of Winter here with a hint of Spring.
Except for today when we had stormy weather and they say half of Adelaide had power outages, not my half, but the wind was so strong at one point it snapped a limb off one of my trees. It's about 4 metres long.

Re: PET'S CORNER

My thought is that in the future we will only be able to buy Pedigree dogs and cats. Gosh how expensive will that be for the average family.

Also if the cat owners can't afford to keep up the registrations they might abandon them. This would be cruel and the cats might end-up as feral cats.
