tourist (nationality unknown) picks up killer blue octopus and somehow lives

Holy flipping heck!! They are extremely lucky whoever they were. We know it was not Raced because if he saw an Australian octopus he would have yelled Andrew and been 100kms away in about 60 seconds.

alot of people out of their homes and farmers unable to get to their stock

its pretty bad down Nelson.  it's south of where my brother in law lives thank goodness

but it shows all that training we do sending firefighters to Aussie bush fires and to USA fires pays off

the fire season here seems to have expanded 

is it ok where you live ?

Hope everything’s settled down by now Daisey but I read that the dry conditions haven’t improved and fire bans will continue. You’re right about the shared fire fighting crews helping out around the world when these disasters occur. Not only as a means of training but also to reinforce the front line and give the locals some respite. 

Things have cooled off a lot down south here (mid 20s this week) and we’ve been spared the floods from up north, but we’d sure love some of their rain- it’s still really dry and a return of the hot weather would put us right back in danger. 

I grew up right here on the farm I still live on. In my lifetime we’ve been spared a major fire but back in the ‘40s a bad one tore through here and destroyed many homes and the school. In more recent years I’ve watched flames and smoke fill the horizon on pretty much every point of the compass (I live on a hill and can see from Melbourne to the forests along the Victorian  Surfcoast). It’s a horrible thing to smell smoke on the hot summer wind when you live in one of the world’s most fire prone regions.

im so glad you have been spared the fires at your place

i feel.sorry for farmers and farm animals and wild animals the most durring the dry

today is another completly blue sky day

i miss my clouds

my garden is a wreck

i read about a farm house that was saved because the owner went to a 'gardening talk' by the fire brigade

everdently flax is the ticket 

lucky i love flax but it's not everyone's cup of tea

up.north Gisborn is about to run its drinking water dry

we are very lucky to have a great big river on our doorstep but not everyone is so lucky

Another OzTour2017 concert Bruciversary today, this time a little melancholy... 16th Feb 2017. Mine and @iPod's last time seeing Bruce.

But we did get up close and personal ~ so let's not be too sad about it.  @Raced Off The Street and @Junglelandish were there, too. And other Lakers whose names are fading in the mists of time.  So a glass raised to new friends - both virtual and real - made on that tour!

And for anyone who went to those shows, the euphoric, yet sad, walk out of the venue to this:

Faith will be rewarded.

Jan / Feb / March 2021 is my guess.

Of course, I'm screwed because I'll be around halfway across on my paddle trike trip to NZ (refer post somewhere above)

Oh, it's an actual snake. I thought it was an article about Tony Abbott on a tax payer funded junket...

You need to understand, that Killer Snakes in Oz look like this:

allens-killer-pythons_530x.jpg.645faafe45960f5556c6c2028bbe0c85.jpg

 

And tasty they are, too.

Of course none of our pythons are actual killers, unless you are a possum.

Now I'm not going to look for the Oz/NZ 2014 thread, so I'll say this here. Here on E-Street Radio, they have been playing a lot of concerts from the 2014 tour per the anniversary dates, today was Brisbane with a lot of the WIESS album, but what great fun it sound like all were having over the last few concerts.

Outside the usual important life and family events, I can honestly say that two of the best nights of my life were the two Adelaide shows in 2014. Bruce and band in tremendous form, playing in an arena, and with 9 songs only in common between night 1 and 2 more like a 7 hour show played out across two nights than two 3 hour plus concerts

Those two magnificent shows are particularly memorable to me too.  And not just because it was so bloody hot!

It's funny - Ken Rosen's Kingdom of Days also referred to it as side two of WIESS... it was the whole shebang: (from 1:13.00)

I think because what Bruce says before starting into the WIESS, he said maybe just one side. But you're correct the whole album was played. 

BTW: jukebox, are you on the same FB page as this dude post? I joined not long ago. And i receive so many post from there I'm thinking about jumping out.

I have a very limited presence on FB, and use the "ignore" function heavily!  Others want to be on there 24/7, and $hit-post all sorts of rubbish.  The Mark Knopfler group I am a member of on there is even worse...
