    I don't think so, in this case. The lad had ADHD and was being 'home schooled', at least for the last 4 years. In that time I rarely saw him and if he had any friends they would've been visiting with their parents. I'm not about to speculate.

    Hearing aids and a rant

    It's not just loud noise that effects or causes hearing loss... 'constant' noise will, over time, do it too.

    JD Zero Turn Reviews

    Well, I've had my Z355E for a couple of years now. It's been flawless for what I need. What I mean by that is that it's not 'commercial' and that I need to keep my mouth firmly shut due to rough ground 'jarring' = the suspension simply isn't up to those standards. I purposely bought it due to...

    Good morning!!!!

    Wattle tree wood rarely grows thick enough to use for heating firewood. Mostly we use certain types of eucalypt for firewood, "ironbark" being the best. Also certain pine trees, like a "she-oak". Other than 'non-native' hardwoods that you'd be familiar with, most eucalypt trees are considered a...
  127. Wagtail

    Good morning!!!!

    After a 'Googling' it looks like they only eat native seeds and pine-cones (plus those nasty grubs inside tree limbs). Those beaks are bloody powerful & can shred a tree-limb down to the core to get at those grubs. It seems that I have a number of native trees that attract them, though.

    Shy in that you can't approach them. They're mostly close to my the house though, in the blackwood trees that I have around the property. 2-6 at a time.

  132. Wagtail

  136. Wagtail

    Now I'm paranoid

    You'll be right, Mate... Safety is, for the most part, taking a moment or two to consider 'what could go wrong or happen' and taking the necessary precautions. If you think it's 'dodgy', then it probably is.
  137. Wagtail

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Tuesday) morning. Overnight Low of 9.5C and it's presently 18.1C, overcast & fairly calm at the moment. Not much to report except I'm off to change into my work clothes to have that 'tractor fun' with the hay delivery that should be happening soon. That's about it, take care all.

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Friday) morning. Overnight Low of 8.8C and it's presently 18.2C, mostly cloudy with a bit of a breeze. Yesterday turned out to be a marathon 'pick up sticks' arvo in preparation for the first mowing of the season. I do love having all of these mature trees around the property & driveway...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Thursday) morning. Overnight Low of 10.6C and it's presently 17.3C, overcast and fairly calm. Well, I got the wattle branches 'shifted'; it took 3 ute loads. I then remembered to order my split wood for delivery... it'll arrive sometime next week and then I'll begin my annual "Wood...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Wednesday) morning. Overnight Low of 2.6C and it's presently 19.5C, fairly clear and calm. As I wrote yesterday, today is 'into town' day for mail & groceries. Followed by cleaning up the wattle branches downed yesterday. The first 'mowing' around the house is looking to be close...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good late (Tuesday) arvo. Overnight Low of 5.8C, High of 20C and it's presently 19.7C, partly cloudy with gusting wind. Like everyone, found that TBN was 'down'... which lead to my getting off my backside and tackling a few outside projects, including the star-picket straightening and, despite...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Monday) morning. Overnight Low of 8.7C and it's presently 18.2C, overcast with wind increasing. Noticed that the "Mad Horse Woman"'s Standardbred has returned from being 'started', so we're back to two horses on the neighbouring paddock. Their water trough gets filled from my shed's tank...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Sunday) morning. Overnight Low of 5.8C and it's presently 13.5C (heading to 20C), fairly clear and calm. As per usual I'm off to Church in about a half hour and then the rest of the day is His. That's about it, take care all.

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Saturday) morning. Overnight Low of 3.9C and it's presently 19.2C, somewhat overcast with a breeze. Gave myself a haircut yesterday. I've used one of those round bladed head shavers to give me a #2 all over, followed by a beard trim and an ear hair clean out. Next was to take a 'tour'...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Friday) morning. Overnight Low of 2.9C and it's presently 15.4C, cloudy with a slight breeze. The new set-top box was retrieved and the 'set up' went, surprising, smooth! That's a first for the year when it comes to anything electronic. Not much 'planned' for the rest of the week...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Thursday) morning. Overnight Low of -0.3C (glad that I put a fire on yesterday arvo) and it's presently 15.8C. Fairly clear with a breeze. A 'smattering' of rain, including a moment of granular hail, yesterday but nothing indicated in the gauge. Of course I get a text from the PO this...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Wednesday) morning. Overnight Low of 2.1C and it's presently 15.9C. A very blustery evening/night somewhat continuing through today. It's clear at the moment. Yesterday I did get the bottles to the tip (free for recyclables) + I stopped off at the PO as I'm expecting a new satellite 'box'...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Tuesday) morning. Overnight Low of 10.8C and it's presently 19C, mostly overcast with a breeze that is predicted to increase. For some strange reason the empty-wine-bottle box is full and needs to be emptied in the recycle bin at the tip... It's a mystery as to how this accumulation...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Monday) morning. Overnight Low of 6.9C and it's presently 20.6C, somewhat overcast with a slight breeze. There was 10.7mm in the gauge @ 0900. A lovely on&off rainy day yesterday and the tanks are full. I'll probably need to put a fire on in the woodheater Wednesday, for a few days...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Sunday) morning. Overnight Low was, again, 10.4C and it's presently 12.4C. It was sunny with a mist when I awoke but is now beginning to cloud over. Rain for most of yesterday but it really poured down around midnight, with thunder! There was 13.5mm in the gauge @ 0730. I'm off to Church...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Saturday) morning. Overnight Low of 10.4C and it's presently 16.8C, overcast with off & on rain showers. It's fairly calm but the winds could increase later. So, it's an 'inside day' today. Which is fine, although I did spot another branch down in Paddock #3 that looks to be resting on...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Friday) morning. Overnight Low of 5.7C and it's presently 27.3C (way above the predicted 22C, and it's not yet noon). Light cloud cover with a gentle breeze. Rain with a moderate 'flood warning' alert in place for tomorrow & Sunday. Hmmm... a least my tanks will be full to overflowing. I...

    Why is it.....????

    <snert> Yeah, I hear you. It's also that time of the year (for me) to check under both visors in case a huntsman spider is hiding there. They're harmless but 'big' with long legs. o_O

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Thursday) morning. Overnight Low of 6C and it's presently 25.7C! It's fairly clear with a gentle breeze. Yo-yo mid-Spring temperatures/weather for sure. We're expecting a heavy rain event this weekend. Not much on for the daytime. Hopefully I can have a video chat with my Aunt (in...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good Lord, I just checked the outside temp and it's gone up to 30C! That's 90F. [(30 x 2) + 30] That's a fairly good way of quickly converting C to F.

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Wednesday) morning. Overnight Low of 3.8C and it's presently 23.4C! (that's it for the woodheater... at least for a while, being mid-Spring and all) It's clear and calm. <whoof!> I guess that my body isn't quite over last week as I was 'crashing' in my chair last evening by 2030. 😌 (and...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good (Tuesday) morning. Overnight Low of 2.5C and it's presently 18C, clear and calm. There was 0.5mm in the gauge @0900. Everything planned yesterday accomplished... today I'll tackle that wattle tree branch. Other than that I'm just getting back into my usual weekly retired routine...

    Good (Monday) morning. Overnight Low of 3.3C and it's presently 17.1C, mostly sunny with an increasing breeze. Very good night's sleep with a wee bit of a 'sleep in'. Today is definitely a dhobi day (catching up on all of last week) and I'll need to make a run into town to collect a couple of...
