    The first time I woke up this morning, at the time Simon has to get on the bus on weekdays, my hips were in a great deal of pain. I was able to get back to sleep, and when I woke up again, they didn't hurt. So extra sleep and better hips.

    There's a petition going here, to help "save" Koalas by importing a population of them. We do have some gum trees.

    Various experts are saying, "well, hang on there....".

    pzkpfw, it is amazing that after all the problems with possums, foxes rabbits etc people would even think that this could possibly be a good idea.

    Good point Grant, but goodness me NZ would be nirvana for Tasmanian Devils. All those lovely little defenceless animals to eat.

    Yep.

    Though as with dung beetles being introduced to Oz, there's still some of this kind of thing going on. We occasionally get a new "bug" that's a parasite of something (usually itself introduced) that needs "controlling".

    I trust "the scientists" with this, more than people voting for the cute animal!

    On the pine aroma theme, my wife got an aromatherapy oil of lavender and cedarwood which produces a most unusual scent, but seems to be good for relaxation and sleep (per the bottle). It does seem to do this, which is nice.

    Trivial things that make me happy... watching YouTube with my wife. We are addicted to shows about videogames (reviews, news, guys taking things apart just to see what's inside, etc.). However, we also watch the BBC's "Horrible Histories" because it is so funny! My favorite episode was the one with "The News at 1066" with the Bayeux tapestry serving as the news photography. It was hysterical. Also liked the song about Blackbeard the pirate, almost operettic.

    LATER: sorry, this show was on Amazon, which is where we're seeing it.

    And of course, as you would be aware, there was a tremendous amount of research done before releasing them into the wild. And for more than you probably want to know about this project - https://www.agric.wa.gov.au/land-use...les?nopaging=1

    I definitely think that in my experience the bush fly problem has been somewhat abated by their introduction.

    My 6 year old grand-daughter is just finishing her summer vacation swimming lessons. In her class of 8 children she is the only European looking kid. The reason this makes me happy is that over the last few years new immigrant children, and adults, have been involved in an over-representative number of drownings in backyard pools etc. The State and Federal Governments have been doing a lot of 'Public Service Announcements' to try and get those parents and there children to become "water aware". These migrants often come from countries where swimming is either not part of their culture or dangerous. From this very small sample it does appear that parents are beginning to take notice.

    In her class there are Chinese, Malay, Indian Sub-continental etc children. My daughter was speaking to one of the other mothers , who appears to be a Muslim of middle-eastern origin. She said that they had just bought a house with a swimming pool and her daughters were loving the pool but couldn't swim. They wear 'Muslim swimwear' and are hugely enjoying the lessons and advancing very well. For those who haven't seen this type of swimwear - https://au.dhgate.com/product/2018-t...;au|1210148636

    In Perth you are always near the water and it is a big part of local life so it is important that these new residents become adept at being safe around the rivers, pools and the ocean.
