Australian Climate: More Strange Weather…. thumbnail

Australia is a big country; I know I have mentioned it before. But then, I'm just stating the obvious aren't I? Everybody knows Australia is a big country. But I was reminded of how big Australia is again this week. As you know I have been talking about the arrival of spring here over the [...]

Those of you who subscribe to my sometimes weekly, sometimes fortnightly depending on what's happening newsletter will already know that on Friday Mrs BobinOz and I went out for the evening.

Two weeks I probably scared quite a few of you with my post about the arrival of spring and with it the waking of the snakes. Then at the end of last week I may have scared a few more of you with my post about swooping magpies attacking people. As these posts were separated [...]

Because at the same time as those snakes are surfacing from their winter slumber, nests are being built in trees. Nests for [...]

Dentist

It was February 2009 when I wrote my first post about going to the doctors, and ended it by declaring that for my next exciting adventure I may go in search of a dentist. Didn't take me long, did it? Yes, last week I went to the dentist. It was actually my second visit to [...]

Python

Geckoes are Chuck Chuck Chucking.... And the snakes are awaking. More of that in a minute. But first..... I usually like to post on Monday about something I did over the weekend. This weekend we went to "Art in the Park", the very same local event we went to last year. Not really much point [...]
