    SS cafe

    I did that and the silly buggers ate their breakfast biscuits then turned around and went straight back in! I love my little quacks, but they are not the most intelligent of creatures. 😆 They seem to have figured it out today though, I called them out again after breakfast and pretended to...

    SS cafe

    I have odd food sensitivities as well. Certain bread makes me sick but I havent found a connection between what does and what doesnt - brown bread is the worst and I forced myself onto it for years - cos people told me white bread was the issue. It wasnt. I just rarely buy it now and dont really...

    Daisy - Dawdling towards Delicious

    I keep losing this thread! Garden is going so, so well. Im stoked! I really like eating my herb salad. A mix of green herb leaves that I pick and have with whatever protein im cooking that day. A squeeze of home grown lime and the neighbours tomatoes go down a treat! Herbs work well here, some...

    Raining here today :D The garden is going to love it! Been really lucky with rain this year in that there has been more of it! Today I have planted some kale seeds so they grow over winter. Next will be radish. The snails are also out in force. I have never seen them stick their heads into...

    Technology is ruining the human race

    The pub is the summer hub here. Its not air conditioned, but is a huge brick building that stays cool and serves cold drinks. Too much skin cancer in this country to be outside in the heat! Smoking was banned indoors, so conversations are interupted by smokers having to duck out for a fag every...

    Little Creatures

    Can you spot the bobtail? Just about stepped on this little dude on the front door step. Had crawled behind the pots by the time I got the camera Out. Tons of these around here, I love them! (Hopefully this photo isnt too huge! It wont let me resize on the phone, sorry!)

    Hen Turning into Rooster-How to Reverse

    Yep the digging of holes is what made me say no more chickens in my garden! The ducks are better at eating snails and their paddle pools water the trees :D win, win win - and no rolled ankles in new holes!

    Technology is ruining the human race

    I like the internet. Ive been a member of many international forums and enjoy learning things from across the globe. Many in my age group stopped at facebook so are easily fed and limited to the bubbles they created there. Its nice to go on orderly forums and see more than just regurgitation and...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Did more in the garden today than I have in weeks! Moved the garden bed that my neighbour made me to a winter spot. Now to fill it and figure out what to put in my winter veg bed! I got stuck into an overgrown bush and chopped the middle out of it. Could do with some minor pruning now but I...

    Hen Turning into Rooster-How to Reverse

    Good luck in treating her. I have no ideas on this one. One of my hens started crowing, she was an outcast from the get go and got special treatment from me, so I assumed thats why she decided to "rule the roost". She died not too long after her crowing started unfortunately, I found it cute...

    Coronavirus Concern Up

    We get fined for not voting here. I expect my fine in the mail any day now. The state election was just recently and labour won in an absolute landslide. The way our Premier handled the pandemic is to be applauded, regardless of my disinterest in politics. The closed boarders and short but...

    Ever Given Blocking Suez Canal

    I only know about the cyber attack on a live commercial news/breakfast show on channel 9. The breakfast show went off air for a while and the channel resumed programming outside of live broadcasts. Not sure what happened behind the scenes. We really only have 5 major national tv news channels...

    Ever Given Blocking Suez Canal

    Its been freed and refloated now. I only learned of it in the first place because of the memes 🤣 it barely made news waves here until tonight, after being moved. I guess because it barely affected anything in Australia. I didnt even know what the suez canal was!

    Can solar power charge an electric car?

    Those things are HUGE! It would probably be more a question of the power the battery can contain. Solar works too well in Australia and storage of the energy is a bigger issue than generating the energy. Personal cars of a D150 size are few and far between where I am, but this would be the best...

    SS cafe

    Send some rain my way! Dry and very hot here. 100F outside right now, my plants are wilting. Good weather to get washing dry quick, but I brought a huge grasshopper in with it. I have just sat down with a cold milo to watch the news and browse the ikea site. My mum is bringing a trailer down...

    SS cafe

    Allergic to babies 😆 2 of the visitors were allergic to the hay/rabbits that I have in the house. They did ok though once out of the bunnies room. Was a nice time, now to keep the place clean til the next round of visitors next weekend!
