They have just opened a butterfly sanctuary nearby, and that is where this picture is taken.

Apparently LARGE bandicoots are still classified as marsupials. (Stupid sign at the entrance to the hospital where I work).

MG, bandicoots are said to be a common host for ticks. Are ticks a concern in your part of Australia? They aren't in Melbourne, but I have seen animals on Wilson's Promontory and further east with ticks attached.



This is the Lifesaving Club headquarters on suburban Williamstown Beach, but those who watched the Australian comedy/drama "Seachange" will recognise it as the Pearl Bay Courthouse.

Yes, we do have ticks over here. They are particularly bad at the venue where we hold our annual croquet and archery tournaments. We even give out awards to whoever picks up the most ticks at the club! Touch wood, I've never had one!

I loved "Sea Change"!

The older suburbs of Melbourne were once criss-crossed with back laneways for the discreet collection of...errr...nightsoil by a contractor with a horse and cart.
With the advent of the sewer system, some lanes became disused, or used for illegal activities. Many of them have since been sub-divided and sold to adjoining landowners.

In this suburb, street frontages are very small, so the lanes are maintained to allow vehicle access into the back yard if the property owner wishes. So where there was once an outhouse, there is now a small garage or carport.

I received one of several large pumpkins that had grown wild in my brother's yard. Not being one to waste Nature's Bounty, I made this Thai-style curry of pumpkin and prawns. Very filling with rice!
Pumpkin soup will be the next recipe; I might even attempt a Pumpkin Pie in honour of my American team-mates.

Junior celebrated another birthday this week, and has invited a gang of buddies around for the afternoon. Here's the tummy-filler they will tuck into sometime around 4 O'clock:



Luigi, kit-kat, smarties, chocolate .... and underneath it all even a bit of cake! I expect the pate to be polished clean by the time they're finished with it!

Saguaros do - they're the woody scar tissue which grows around holes in the cactus - and some birds like to nest inside the cactus, making shoe shaped holes.

Unfortunately, Ren, we didn't get to see the university. It was a four-day coach trip, visiting different places each day, and there wasn't enough time, really, to see everything in Durham.

We have seen some lovely stained-glassed windows, but this one was one of my particular favourites, in Hexham Abbey

We also visited Alnwick Castle, where they filmed some of the Harry Potter movies. Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to see all of the castle, but we did manage to visit the gardens, attached to the castle. I thoroughly recommend the gardens, with stunning water features and hornbeam tunnels.



This is a photo from above, of the Poison Gardens. Obviously, you need a guide to tour the poison gardens, and there was no time to have a look around it. So we took a picture instead laugh

I can see the frog!

Before I joined the site to cover as much of Britain as possible I'd never have taken bus stops, roundabouts or hedges, but when you're on the road and there's nowhere else to stop you take whatever you can to add another 1km square to the map. This is in East Grinstead but could probably be anywhere outside London as our bus stops are unique.

Couldn't be Northampton, our bus stops are red. And often have a front to them as well as a back. But they do have those uncomfortable perches - they make waiting for a bus seem as though it's taking an eternity, whereas in fact it's only forever. wink

Ah, privatisation- I forgot about that! Before 1964 there was a national bus stop design actually issued by the Department of Transport, although not of course for London Transport which was separate, but don't know if anywhere else was excepted. But with privatisation National Bus which had the plain white stops is now becoming replaced with local companies which I wouldn't have really noticed unless came across an unusual one like yours.

Enlarged picture of frog. They were about 1cm long



It was quite difficult to get a good image of them as they moved quickly, probably to get away from Lady our dog who I had to hold back with one hand to stop her eating them while taking the pictures with the camera in the other hand

Love the little froggies! I saw a huge bullfrog the other day, but couldn't get a decent photo (still having camera woes).

Satguru, I don't recognize where in East Grinstead that bus stop is. Were you on the road coming in from Forest Row?

Anyway, you asked
Quote:
Is that where she was from before going to Canada?
about my mother, and I needed to find and scan this photo before answering you.

The answer is "Yes" my Mum grew up in Dormansland (she was born in Walton-on-Thames) and it was in this building, The Memorial Club, in Dormansland, that she met a Canadian soldier during WWII. He was my Dad, of course smile They married in the church in Dormansland, and once the war was over Dad came back to Canada first, followed by Mum and my sister, who was about a year old when they made the journey. I came along a few years later, in Canada.



(I took the pic on one of my trips to England in the early eighties, before I moved over there myself.)

Forest Row? I've spent many hours at the Isle of Thorns in Forest Row.

And a couple of years ago I spent a few hours at the Llama Park. I don't suppose there was a Llama Park at Forest Row when you were there, SpanishLiz, but please say hello to this resident. smile



My team's mascot, Ralph, also lives in that Llama Park. And for anyone who has no idea where we're talking about, the forest at Forest Row is the Ashdown Forest - it's where Winnie-the-Pooh lives!

Such a handsome Llama, Flops wink

Love the frogs! Our summer monsoon storms will start up soon (fingers crossed) which will wake the desert toads from their underground slumbers -- always so cool to hear them croaking smilee

A pic from this morning -- the daytime moon over the desert.

On top of the hill of the town of Vélez Blanco (Almeria - Spain) you can find this Renaissance castle which is an extension of the original Moorish alcazaba, which was built by the Marquises of Vélez Blanco in the early 16th century.

I can't remember when these familiar batteries vanished from Britain but they were exactly the same all my life. You see some good memories out in the sticks sometimes, although if anyone went in and asked for them they'd be pretty disappointed.

Back to what was my local park. It does change every season.



The Everready seems a puzzle as they became Energizer in 1992 when bought by the American company. They did keep the name as you said as they sell them online looking quite different, but haven't seen them in shops as Energizer seem to have rebranded them all there. But they indeed are still very much available online, which makes me wonder why I haven't seen the brand in shops since Energizer took them over, but they are widely available otherwise. Has anyone seen them in a British shop as I certainly haven't?

I saw that as well when I did a search. They changed the name altogether for most places and changed the spelling where they kept it the same. That'll do a lot for product awareness... confused

Today, I allowed aggressive thoughts to guide me....
"Hey, Old and Fragile - you're for the chop! You thin and puny ones - no-one wants you! You who are too left-leaning, I must exterminate. That goes for your extreme right chums too.
Scram, sucker!

So once again my annual rose pruning is done.

What a beautiful kitty!

From this morning's hike... This is the cornerstone of Shaw Butte Observatory, a Hohokam (Native American tribe) site from the 12th or 13th century. There are more petroglyphs on the stone in the right corner of the picture. It's a pretty interesting site -- found this on the Internet:

I love Op-shops! Paid the princely sum of five Australian dollars for this pram, which included an alternative stroller module. Now daughter won't have to bring her own when she comes here for a shopping trip.
Not a mark on it, not a safety clip out of place - all I had to do was polish the chrome and keep my cats from nesting in it!

That's interesting. The links I found were all abroad, but suspect that's a Channel Island thing as I would guess Energizer have individual contracts for each country and the UK can't use the old name but Channel Islands are independent. Update, I've just found this site selling them in the UK. They may be imports but am now on a search myself in the shops. It's a shame they changed the name though as Eveready isn't the same even if still available. Full range

Nathans! laugh ) This is the famoUs Cyclone rollercoaster. (No, I didn't have
a go on it. I didn't want to lose the hot dog. wink )
