Two weeks ago we looked at Fresh Fruit and Veg: Australian and UK Prices Compared and last week it was Fresh Meat: Australian and UK Prices Compared. Today we complete our trilogy by looking at the price of fresh fish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9SSOWORzw4 Not so much whole fish, we are mostly going to be looking at fillets [...]

You may remember that there was no post on Monday of this week. It was a national holiday here in Australia; 25 April is Anzac Day. Well, guess what? There will be no post next Monday either, it's another holiday. This time, it's Labour Day here in Queensland and Northern Territory. All the other states [...]

Huge Moths, Known As the ‘Rain Moth ‘, in South Australia thumbnail

Last week, if you recall, my post was about Snaking Caterpillars: The Pine Processionary Caterpillar. Caterpillars, at some point, turn into butterflies or moths. Last week, some rather large moths showed up in the upper south-east of South Australia. When I say big, I'd do mean big, as you can see from this tweet: Um [...]
