How intolerable people are sometimes who are happy and successful in everything.


Before I start, I want to say that four am is far too early to have to put up with a whining and grizzling 18 month old.

Here's a kookaburra that I snapped sitting on the power lines in Burnie last month. Most Tasmanians don't know that kookaburra's are actually introduced species here in Tasmania. Given that they love to eat snakes, I'm not complaining too much.


Here's a poem.

There's no earthly way of knowing, by Roald Dahl

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction they are going!
There's no knowing where they're rowing,
Or which way they river's flowing!
Not a speck of light is showing,
So the danger must be growing,
For the rowers keep on rowing,
And they're certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing...

Well said... and I find it annoying that the people that need money the least are the ones that sit on it.

Hmm...I wonder if Ezra, is that "whining" and "grizzling" 18 month old.
A lot of great things going on here...

Barbados in Focus, thanks! When I'm with the kids, I don't often get the chance to experiment with the camera (settings wise), but Jen was here when I spotted this guy, so I fiddled with the depth of focus.

Chris, Roald was a genius.
