Just checked the weather station. Beneath the back veranda where the temperature peaked yesterday at over 44 degrees, it now reads 14 degrees. Crazy Victorian weather.

Fair dinkum, those critters go totally nuts in the wind and rain.
     One got hung up in my Christmas lights that I had strung out on the cherry tree. That was fun. He kicked up a stink that attracted almost every galah in the area. There was about twenty of them all spread along the power line screeching their heads off. Took us a while to figure out what the fuss was about until the missus spotted him caught in the tree lights. He Managed to get the wire around his neck and knotted around one wing. Ended up having to cut the light wiring and then it took the dopey bugger a couple of minutes before he realised he was free.Rolling Eyes Man did he put up a fight. Glad I had some leather gardening gloves.
    How do I resize my photo's. Some take up a lot of memory.
Normally I crop the pic in the camera down to around 200kb. Is there a better way?

Another pic of the same pair as above.

It rarely happens, but how do birds know if they reach out to a mate on nearby powerline there is a puff of smoke and two dead birds?

If the photo is in your computer just open it in "paint" and resize it, I usually resize down to 30%.

Reg there are many many credible scientists and engineers, even climate scientists who disagree with the so called "consensus" but big money and fake news drown out there cries of foul.

Here are just a few who object to the ongoing promulgation of the way off theories and failed predictions of the NASA scientist who started it all, James Hansen.

March 28, 2012

The Honorable Charles Bolden, Jr.
NASA Administrator
NASA Headquarters
Washington, D.C. 20546-0001

Dear Charlie,

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites. We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data. With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled.

The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.

As former NASA employees, we feel that NASA’s advocacy of an extreme position, prior to a thorough study of the possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers is inappropriate. We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject. At risk is damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASA’s current or former scientists and employees, and even the reputation of science itself.

For additional information regarding the science behind our concern, we recommend that you contact Harrison Schmitt or Walter Cunningham, or others they can recommend to you.

Thank you for considering this request.

Sincerely,

(Attached signatures)

CC: Mr. John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for Science

CC: A*s* Mr. Chris Scolese, Director, Goddard Space Flight centre

Good one Jen pale
Cracked 41 in the shade under the wattle tree in the back yard this arvo and it has been fairly cloudy today, thankfully. Pretty warm for Canberra and no cool change in sight.
Managed to keep the inside temp to 31 which I guess is not too bad for a cheapie evaporative portable air con.  I think it chewed up at least 30 ltr of water butt.

For some unknown reason it seems that when the temp outside the house goes down a couple of degrees around this time of day, the inside temp rises a corresponding amount. scratch

I have noticed this fer fer fer fernom n fernommumum ffer nominal occurrence ever since we have lived in this house...31 yrs.

My apologies Adrian
…………………………


Hi Jen.
That pic brought back a couple of long forgotten memories from 51 years ago.
I was a main Sub Station Linesmans assistant on the Electricity Commission of Vic when a person I knew of got hung up on the 66KV  transmission line directly to earth.
   Set him alight and broke every bone in his body before he hit the ground...Muscle contractions and spasms were so strong that the bones broke.

Another chap I worked with was working on a live 3 phase 415 volt junction/fuse  box when he shorted the 415 vac to ground and the flash created near on burnt his face off. He survived and healed up amazingly well. He was an highly experienced live line linesman

I think that pic is from a movie and portraying what can happen to a human being during an atomic explosion??

Jen there was no offence taken.
I fully understand that the pic was part of your humorous post.I even had a bit of a chuckle from it. No need to have taken it down.
I have removed part of  my post so that it becomes just an indication of what can happen sometimes through lapses of concentration.
So rest easy Jen all is good.

Kon, forget thrashed ground. There is still a huge area of potentially auriferous ground out there still waiting to be proven up. Okay, fossicking may be now very limited, but prospecting is not.
Start looking at the Geo maps and you will see the huge expanses of folded sedimentaries that have only been superficially explored, and much of it is on public land that it is perfectly legal to prospect. Maybe the lazy bum era is over, but not the prospecting era.

You're not wrong there Reg. Likewise, less the comparison/testing of any new equipment, it is not so much the thrashed ground itself that interests me, but the natural undisturbed ground found to be near by & around these richly discovered auriferous localities of the past. I'v got a couple of such localities bookmarked for a detect already, pending this unforgiving heat eases up soon.
Well done moredeep. Any colour found can only be good colour, no matter what the size. cheers

It got to 45 here today. I had to keep water containers full and clean all round the house. The birds really struggled. I had so many different species coming in close to the house looking for relief. When the power failed I had water in the bath to help keep my little friends hydrated. This is so hard on wildlife.

Really feel for you blokes and the wildlife copping this incessant heat. Thankfully not too much alight, that would be really bad.
Speaking with my sister near Sale, she just hopes the wind doesn't get up which nearly always means a fire breakout.
We were recalling growing up further east in Gippsland when the Coolgardie safe was still in use until 1952 when Dad bought a kero fridge. At least the Coolgardie safe (an original, she still has it) didn't smell!

Up here 1100m. above sea level had our warmest overnight, 15deg. so only a sheet over! Forecast today 31deg., our hottest has been 34.
Low humidity so not much perspiration but have to keep the liquids up all the same (the pub is only 2 blocks away!)

We will get some hotter days in Feb., but the nights will cool down.
Going to be staying here a little longer methinks until this "climate change" issue is resolved! Laughing
