Kate, we don't have any bushfires here, just a problem with grass fires lately. Made the Moon and Jupiter even more red tonight. What a blast it was seeing that; I hope you got a pic, I saw one from Armidale where you could see all of Jupiter's moons!

Hi, Kate!
Thanks for your response to my comments and my 'handle.'
Living in Portland, a person either loves dirt, or leaves! It is so rich and grow-able and I love making things grow.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
We are negativity-free, now!
I am sorry we all had to go though that and yet I am glad to see how many people pulled together to make a positive change.

Hi Kate, thanks for dropping by. I was knocked out when I saw the pair of black cockatoos in the gum tree. They didn't care about me, but I didn't dare go any closer. Some of the Metallic Shield Bug pics are going to be put on a Tasmanian insect site. Apparently not much is known about them and these will add to the knowledge.

Hi Kate, thanks for visiting my page and leaving your kind comments. I find out my shoulder problem tomorrow. I have no idea how I hurt it and it is getting progressively worse.

Hi Kate. The shoulder should be fine. A bit of tendonitis in one tendon, but thankfully no tears!
29/Mar/13 12:17 PM

Hi Kate. Thanks for your lovely and informative comments on my pics.
The shoulder certainly could have been a lot worse.

Thank you, Kate! All three flowers must be wonderful to see! I am really impressed with the size of that flowering hedge! Then again, I am always impressed with your photos, too!

Hey Kate,

Pugetopolis is pretty much everywhere the fresh water flows into greater Puget Sound. The population of this area is growing so much that it will soon be one big city. BTB

Wow girl, it appears that you're a most prolific maker of friends.

Hello Kate, I thought that I was having another birthday this morning when I opened my computer and saw all those messages. For some reason there were 2 emails for each comment.
I did have a wonderful birthday, including a family lunch and lots of phone calls and lovely messages! It was a More...

Hi Kate,
I don't think todays photo accompanying the hard puzzle is 'The Swifts. IThe Swifts I know is the old Edmund Resch (brewery) 'home' in the middle of 3 or more acres in Darling Point Road. It was left to the Catholic Church and the Archbishop used to live there until it was sold to the More...

Hi Kate, thanks for all the fabulous photographs over the years. You are a most able photographer.

Also, many thanks for the biography of the Fitzroys. I knew about the weather forecasting part.

Hi Kate,
Have been missing your posts on easy,and even on medium lately,do hope it is just due to you being busy, rather than any troubles. We still often get your photos on easy, even though they are often repeats and some years old. There have been a lot of ''unlabelled'' photos which have More...

Welcome back, Kate. I hope your holiday was fun. I've missed your comments on the site while you have been away. Thanks for visiting my page. I love my new camera. I just need to wok out more about it can do.

Thanks Kate, I'm at the opposite end, Lower Portland.

Thanks for your comment Kate to my page. Glad you enjoyed the photos. Now I've got to find out how I can do time exposures. I have tried to take shots of things (especially flowers) and find that the flash does not capture the true colour. Also when I want to use shadows, they just disappear !

for the b'day greeting! It's always such a treat to get the 2-day Sudoku celebration
Hope you are well rested now!

I hope very much to see my Aussie friends in-person one day, too! When hubby retires...

Kate, Thank you for the Birthday greeting.
I always enjoy hearing from special Sudoku friends.

Vice versa, Shiela! Lets hope we don't do a cross over at the same time - I would certainly be disappointed if I couldn't see you here or there!!! I'm hoping to get ''over there'' one day!!

Hello Kate, I guessed you must have headed off somewhere by the lack of your comments; and now by the message on return..thanks! Hope you now have a great new set of pics to share!

Hi Kate,
Just read your comment on today's Medium. Your photo of the white camellia - you did not give that one a name - is it sasanqua or japonica, and do you know it's name. I have quite a few of both types with the J's just starting to open. I'm hoping that they will still be flowering in More...

Hi Kate, so glad you still recognize Murphy. We have been training him as a companion dog for hubby. Quite fun to be able to take him everywhere. We have had Miss Molly about 4 years. I can hardly believe that's how long I have been away from Sudoku!

Thanks for the birthday greetings Kate! 70 isnt as ancient as I had expected and Ive felt more debilitated in my younger (and wilder ) years!! And Cockatoo Island is now one of my favourite spots in Sydney where I can dream of the past! Have you been watching First Footprints on ABC? Some truly awesome historical material! Cheers for the day, Rob

Hi Kate, it was great meeting you on Saturday and finally put a face to the lens, I mean name!

The run went pretty much to plan - I faded a little bit in the hilly section and didn't quite make my goal of 63 minutes. I ended up with 64:46, which is still around 2 1/2 minutes faster than last year so I'm pretty happy with that.

Hello Kate - thank you for taking the time to check out my holiday photos and for your comments.
It's hard getting back to reality but at least the memories will last forever.
Cheers,
Anne

Thanks Kate, I think being in another country on the other side of the World is an acceptable excuse. Thanks for the thought.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know most of that, but suspected something like it. I wonder why it seems to be so difficult to correct.

Kate, thanks for the information about the jigsaws on easy. I personally have never done any if them, I go to jigsaws on the right hand side of the page under network sites. That is where the pictures I submit are usually shown first. I have noticed some of my old pictures being shown again. I have never submitted a picture to easy, only the medium & hard.

Hi Kate,
I see that quite a few have already thanked you.
But I'm in hurry to be the 1000 post, and it was 998 when I lastlooked !!

Eheeeeeeeeeeeew,
I made it, I think !
Congratulations on 1000 posts.
Also, I saw a new photo has been showing as ''latest'', and then when I went to the gallery - WOW, there's a whole lot. I don't remember you telling us that you had posted you holiday pics?
I've got a lot of work ahead -I'm looking forward to it.
