Wise words!

I mean, I've nothing against lutes, but you try coaxing a pinch harmonic out of one while simultaneously staying fashionable.



I wish I had more!

Lute, that is...Grin~

Apart from going into town I didn't get much done yesterday as it was wet and cold outside most of the day.

I picked up my new chook feeder and set that up during the arvo and i picked up a hose reel and 15 metre hose for my air compressor. It's too heavy to move around so I have enough hose to do things outside the shed so happy with that. I'm trying to upgrade tools and my workshop atm.

I made the mistake of going in to see how the tractor was going and they do have it but I may or may not get it by Friday as there are 3 other jobs before me apparently. That will mean I've been waiting over a month when the estimates were initially 2 weeks. I'm not happy but what can you do in a situation like this?

I'm not a particularly patient person unfortunately!

I just like to "talk" about "guitars" here. The world is what it is. Always changing...better oir worse. I'm happy I exist in a "time" of cool guitars :)

They do have very cool guitars from what they had when I was in my teens. Still, I do wish I would have gotten a Mosrite Ventures guitar as a kid. Love the tone of them. I've seen some out there but for the nice ones there more then buying a custom top grade Gibson. Guess my Vintage Modified Jaguar may be as close to one as I get. I do love playing Surf music on it.

We had the country Fire Authority her today to burn off a coupler of piles of green waste in the paddocks. We generate a heap of branches and cuttings and this is the only way we can get rid of it all. We had 2 firefighting appliances there and about 10 people at one stage. Great folks!

Great job to have behind us in a year that's already risky for bush fires!
Now that's a nice Bond fire. Did you roast hot dogs?

Every single day at the 2 Railroads I worked at. Constantly around very large equipment and had to watch yourself.

A lot of farmers here are fighting coal seam gas here and are literally locking the gates to prevent access. I'd hate to see us go the way that you have gone Jim.

Our politicians seem to have a propensity for giving away our natural commodities for a handful of jobs unfortunately so sometimes we have to take things into our own hands.


Don't give up the fight! There's so much gas flaring here that it's showing up on nighttime photos taken from space.

Thanks Jim, it's actually been banned in this state and that started with a locked gate campaign.

People don't realise how hard it is to farm on a big scale, I think. I'm not even farming but just having a bit of dirt is enough to keep you busy a lot.

We have had cattle here on and off over the years, mainly agistment and to keep the grass down. One of our old original fences is unable to contain cattle now and the rear neighbours cows often come in here for a browse. Bella soon sends them back!! We don't mind them here but if they get out and down to the road then they could cause a bad accident! I've ben trying to get our neighbours to spring for half of a new fence for a while now but complicated by the husband dying recently. Judy can't afford contractor prices and wants family & friends to do the work, so I'm leaving it to her to sort out the details. I'm sick of patching it up myself to be honest!

There was a farm behind my house, parents home. The cows would get lose and eat my mums rip tomatoes . She would call the farmer and he would drive through the path in the back woods and round them up with his old tracktor 2 cows. We would try to ride them , but , they would buck us off. :) 6 years old lol :) there were 2 fields a softball field , that is now overgrown with 40 year old pines , and the big field and pine grove. The farmer donated the land , some of it , to the conservation commission. I remember him taking his tracktor to the pine grove , he would hang out there , or watch the kids play ball :) The ig field was for hay. He would get a "baler" macine and make about 10-150 bales , maybe more 2 crops each season bumper crops :) Deer and coyotes there at times , fox , ground hogs. and muckrats too , possum ,racoons , grey squirils and chipmunks and toads and salimanders :) My old buddy guitar player next door neighbor when a kid...feeds the coyotes garbage scraps lol they chase the deer :) We would build 1/2 55 gallon drum things and make little boats , and go to the "mud hole": a 1/4 acre "vernal pool" that would fill in the Spring and dry up a bit by fall. The mud hole :) behind the ball field :)
