Zorba: wow, wonderful pix as always. They make me feel warm (we had snow warnings today and somewhere around 70 or so traffic accidents. It took me 45 minutes to get home this evening - it is normally a 12 minute drive for me during summer LOL)

Jane: nice tree indeed! And such lovely work on the card and your ornaments

And of course I love all the catpix, especially SOTHC's BB&F (too funny, you can almost imagine them conversing like the old guys in the balcony on the Muppet Show lol)

Copago: you are getting "scary good" with your photos lately. The sunset is fabulous (as are the roo pics)


Satguru: I gather your snow went away? Would you like some of mine? (shovelled for 2 hours this evening lol)

The snow has just returned, and I have to go out tomorrow evening if possible. Fingers crossed.
This is a typical modernist house, sadly few kept the original windows.

You are quite right Ren, that was the first time she saw snow and she soon came inside! Your Rosie looks far more comfortable than is allowed! Cats have the knack, don't they?

This is the worst snow I remember since 1968. And I was meant to go out this evening.

Precious kept wanting to go out in the snow all day today, but wasn't so sure about it once we were out there! She kept trying to dig down to the grass...

This is my daughter and her dance troupe taken at a recent hafla (a bellydancing exhibition). Hope it is okay to post but I didn't think anyone was truly recognizable and the girls were dancing at a public event in a public venue where the organiser gave the public permission to take pictures. My daughter is the one in pink (in the middle behind the girl in green).

The colours of their outfits are beautiful, MG.

This was taken inside Culture Gully in Delhi. Each Indian state is represented along with local delicacies, souvenirs and cultural performances. This colourful truck is part of Punjab.

Like Copago, I tried to view the Lunar Eclipse, but clouds and city lights made it impossible, However, I did see a group of grey-headed flying foxes (fruit bats) on their way to somewhere south of my house. Quite an unusual sighting for me!




This is a ring-tailed possum which lives in the dense melaleuca tree on my nature strip, and comes into my front garden to graze. I don't often see him (or them), but I know they are around by the fresh droppings on the footpath, and by the fact that the drey (nest) continues to increase in size. I sometimes leave a bit of chopped apple on the fencepost, but don't feed them regularly as I don't want them to become dependent.

We got the full eclipse at 6.30 this morning and although I'd never be around to see it it was overcast anyhow so didn't make much difference. I have a few of the partial eclipse about ten years ago though.
This is a view I've seen all my life but changed every so often, adding the flyover around 1970 and the offices on it in the late 80s. It's on the North Circular Road in Hendon between the two houses I've lived in most of my life. It means little to many other people but is one of the central parts of my world.
