anthill art

Also Known As: How to Kill an Ant Part Two Today I have an absolute corker of a YouTube for my Friday video slot. This is an amazing clip, I first saw it just before Christmas, December 21 to be precise, it had only been online about a month. Today, when I returned to post [...]

Australia has miles and miles and miles of golden beaches, hectares and hectares of bush, hundreds of national parks, scenic rolling hills, serene countryside and stunning hinterlands.
