    In a way, It is hard to grasp,
    You Down Unders are coming to your
    Winter Solstice!


    Have you similarly moved your Yule observance
    of the longest night. Complete with Yule Log that
    will make it to day light over longest night?


    Sadly :sniff: all YouTube Yule log scenes are inaccurate.
    Showing a pile of smaller logs, not one that would make it to morning.

    Moi :oldman:






    BTW have you guys been effected by :flagcanada:ism

    I'll have to iView, Mrs. wanted to watch a film. Heard a radio interview with Sara though - sounded explosive.

    Shark drags woman into crocodile-infested
    waters in Australia


    A “once-in-a-lifetime” trip in May for a woman in Australia quickly turned into a harrowing experience when she suffered a bite while feeding a shark, which then dragged her into the water.


    Melissa Brunning, 34, was on a yacht in the remote Kimberley region in the northwest part of the country, located about 1,550 miles north of Perth, when she tried to hand-feed up to four tawny nurse sharks swimming around her boat.



    Brunning told the West Australian that she didn't realize she shouldn’t hand feed a shark, until the animal became "like a Hoover," sucking her right index finger into its mouth full of rows of razor-sharp teeth.

    The shark also pulled her into the water of Dugong Bay, which is inhabited by saltwater crocodiles that can grow up to 23 feet long and weigh more than a ton, according to Sky News.

    Brunning sustained cuts, a fracture, a torn ligament and a bad infection from the bite, but did not lose her finger.


    The 34-year-old told the West Australian the incident was “completely my fault," and "just a blonde doing a stupid thing."





    So she blames blonde and not an Aussie thing. :hmm:

    There are many deadly creatures in our country and they should be treated with respect...or else.

    Nothing wrong with an idiot making money off fooling a bunch of morons he knows about an animal that avoided extinction for a few hundred million years. However, if left alone, nature has a way of culling idiots from any species.

    Not Humanity.
    We got Welfare so all may live and procreate.

    Not like the coyote taking the not so smart cats and a few smart ones surviving.

    Unfortunately, we have allowed a few idiots into authority making positions that effect the outcomes for everyone. These idiots would prefer to doom us a a species to grandiose their own self-righteousness, rather than do what is correct for humanity as a whole. I believe the adage: "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" exemplifies my thinking. A bit off topic, but Steve Irwin demonstrates how one complete fool can hoodwink many fools. Irwin always reminded me of that obnoxious little kid hanging around parties picking his nose & annoying everyone with his magic tricks no one was interested in. LOL

    My father would have to be one of the most optimistic people I have met. He just said "I think I will have to buy a new jumper next winter."
