Re: Volcanic eruption today...

Probably good for business. Some years ago an American tourist, whilst hanging over the side of a tourist boat up north Australia, was taken by a croc. In subsequent years tourism boomed as thousands of Americans came to see where it happened. So next year might be a good time to be running tours of...

Went to Bunnings, an Aus big box store and bought a pet's cooling pad to cool LOVML's feet at night.
Noticed the other day on returning from a walk that Myf has taken to standing in her water bowl - one front foot at a time. Thought most odd.

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

Personally find the singy-songy English as spoken by those from the Indian sub-continent quite irritating. All the inflections seem to be in the wrong place. Yuk.

Re: Wot's for Tea, Ma?

Still in the thirties degC last night, so enjoyed a traditional chicken pate on a crusty light rye sourdough loaf, both bought. And the pièce de résistance, got to share it with me dog. Two mouthfuls for me and one for her. She must have enjoyed it as she burped at the end. Spoil her rotten, but hav...

Actually it's not a dormouse. If you look very closely you will find it's a pygmy hippopotamus. :)

He seems to have engineered a significant drop in the Dow via a tweet again. All of mates, forewarned, will have made significant profits. And BenT would have us believe the rest are intelligent. :D

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Article in the news about Russians finding a 14,000 year old puppy frozen in the permafrost in Siberia. They can't work out whether it's a wolf or a dog pup. Showed the picture to my dog Myf and she wagged her tail and barked in recognition, so must be a dog. How do I get to tell them?

From where I am sitting, that MCC sounds like a truly Christian church.
Yup, I was a member for many years, but drifted away after meeting with Bishop (retd) "Jack" Spong. Totally enamoured in his thoughts and books. Ran an Australian forum for his followers for a few years.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

I said down by 90%, love. If the Okavango River flows are going to be comparable then the delta and swamp are not going to be nice places to be in the near future. Might be more reminiscent of the salt pans at Etosha.

I've seen it in full flow and also during the dry season. Even in dry season never been this bad before.

There is a MCC called the Pagans.
My take on MCC was as the Metropolitan Community Church. An Episcopalian/Anglican offshoot that specifically supported GLTB congregations worldwide.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

I guess it would be correct to say that the Rio Cubango/Okavango River benefits from the same weather systems up north that would also feed the Zambezi (in Angola) before it meanders its way east to the Indian Ocean. Main characteristic of Southern Angola is the high plateau, with major river tribu...

Thought most of Tony's writings are about the other side - the "Kruger". Used to fly into Phalaborwa regularly.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Alison, we do not benefit from the Zambezi. After Vic Falls it goes east into the Indian Ocean. We rely on the Okavango River which feeds from Angola. Rains are good up there at the moment but if we don't get local rains it will all soak in on it's way to us. Ex-A I was thinking about the inflows a...

Took Myf on her daily walk this morning, and you could feel the grass crunching underfoot it is so dry. Haven't had any decent rain for quite a while.

No idea what is going on about these dead and dying cattle. Fortunately a distance away and upwind.
Just reading about Vic Falls drying up. Does not bode well for your lagoon, Ex-A, or the Delta for that matter.
