Kate, that was too bad about the zoo keeper at the Taronga Zoo. Any word on how she's doing? I tried searching, but couldn't find any updates.

Hi Kate,
We could write a book on cats! About 3 years ago some new people moved in across the road and brought 3 cats with them, then someone gave them 2 more. The masked lapwings, (we call them plovers) disappeared rapidly. We have a couple of pairs with young at the moment, but as well as More...

Hi Kate,
Got your note on my page about your sucess with cuttings of camellias. I have had a little success with them too, but find that azalea cuttings are very much easier to grow. I hate having to throw away anything that looks like it may grow; and when pruning I can't resist taking a few More...

Hi Kate. I saw linked to the echidna puggle story another news article that said the injured Taronga zookeeper was released from the hospital & is doing well. Good news.

Thanks for that link on the shelducks, Kate. I'll have to read up to see how old they live for and any other facts. We've always had a pair each year here and I wonder if they could be the same ones.

Them thar ducklings were running away from me. Usually when I go near them when they are in the paddock they go straight to water. Yesterday they headed away from it. I don't know if that indicates a new stage of growing up. I will have another look today to see if they came back to water.

Grey fantail: A little bit bigger than a wren, Kate, but not by much. I think they are Australia wide, but the Tasmanian ones are darker than the others.

Thanks for your visit to my page Kate and the enquiry re my Implant. Yes, I think there is some improvement in my hearing. It has only been 3 months since 'switch on'; and I believe that it takes about 6 to be fully effective. People have commented that they don't have to speak QUITE so loudly to More...

Good morning, Kate dear.
You are right, when you come on, I should be snuggling with my pillows. There was a time, I was not a sleeper, and I was able to chat with everyone. Of course, that was before children.

House selling is just taking too long for me, we have only been on the More...

Hi Kate. Thanks for your concern. Our damage was minimal. We were without electricity for 6 days and since our stove is electric, I ended up doing some cooking on the BBQ grill which is natural gas fired. I had to make a poor-man's fix on the exhaust stack of our gas furnace using cotter pins!

Hi Kate, I'm really pleased with today's photos, you know that feeling when it's just what you wanted to capture.
Hubby and I are just off for a couple of days down th East Coast. Thanks for your good wishes.
I hope things go well at your SIL's funeral. Safe travelling.
Cheers, Sacky

Hi Kate, we used to have lots of Welcome Swallows hanging around our previous house. They nested under the house and flew around the garden like larrikins on motorbikes. I developed quite a fondness for the little critters.

Hi Kate,
Thanks for confirming my guess that it was a swallow. They must be all over the world, because we have them here, as well. Great little flyers.I love watching them dive and swoop, when catching insects.I understood that it was probably a slip of the finger that put the flower in the More...

Hi Kate. Was glad to read that Ralph is doing better & is back home with you. I know that was a big worry for you. It's just as bad when our 4-legged children are sick as when our 2-legged ones are. Please give him a get well hug from me.

Thanks for informing me about the Agave photos on your page. I finally had time to look at all of them. This is one interesting plant, that comes in many forms.We don't have any here so it's nice to get to know about them.

Hi Kate! So nice to hear from you and I wish you and those you love a very Happy New Year! The locket my mother is wearing shows an image of the Virgin Mary ... on the reverse is a portion of the Hail Mary prayer in Hungarian. I have the locket now and think of mom every time I see it. She was More...
