And on a day of Remembrance, I pay tribute to our diggers - those in combat, those who have passed on, those who are suffering. I thank you for your sacrifices - your lives gave us freedom. Photo is from http://www.wessexscene.co.uk
What a week! Elections in the USA ensuring Barack Obama another term in the White House (thank God). I've added a quote from JFK...he had this right!
I'm still fighting the *&^%$# vertigo, but had one of those weeks where I work like crazy and seem to achieve almost zero. Know those?
Writing news: Yep, definitely getting there. Another project near completion, two other LONG AWAITED moments will start on Friday. Can't wait!
Books news: won a copy of "The mystery of a hansom cab" by Fergus Hume - thank you ABC Online!
Bird news: Hearing a reasonable chorus, seeing little due to the local predators. The weekend list: wrens, RBFs,
shrieky, thornies, black-faced cuckoo shrikes (3), wattlebird, ravens, kestrel, and 3 parrots - hard to ID as they "looked pale" - must be red-rumped parrots as it's about all that's there. I need a periscope. Heard: Golden whistlers (a pair with fantastic calls), pardies, spineys, babblers, black cockatoos (at last!) AND - joy of joys - two lizards on the entrance road (thankfully alive) - a bluey and a stumpy.
