My favourite ones would be 2, 3, 7 and 9.
Today's walk by the Brickell area: a climbing plant doing her job!
Budgie comments on Apr 4, 2020:
I first noticed the creases in the tree as it bent. I would be inclined to get just the tree and climbing plant in and less of the background. But that is just me. Would be interesting to see it in a months time.
These are some very old shots from Spain in 1972.
Budgie comments on Apr 4, 2020:
The one of the two boys looking at each other with the suntans or the sun on their faces I like as well as the viaduct.
This picture was taken summer 2019.
Budgie comments on Apr 4, 2020:
Beautiful the only thing I would try to do (and I understand that it may have not been possible without scaring the bee) is to get the flower in the center of the frame, but that could just be my OCD talking.
On a scale of Cat, how are you doing today??
Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
I am the same but for dogs. Never see one that my brain if not my mouth does not scream, "Puppy"
I know, it's spring! But when I lived in the North, autumn was my favorite season.
Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
I love the colour of the leaves the contrast with them and the green of the grass really catches my attention.
Another nice tree I saw yesterday while strolling down near the house...
Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:

Today in 1939, Marvin Gaye was born.

Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
Yet another song that I as a tweenager loved it did not fully understand it. Still love it despite knowing what it is about.
Spring still hasn't come here, but at least the sun still sets here.
Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
Love the sun through the clouds and the pattern the clouds are making. Well done.
Some pretty wild flowers, a tulip and my fat pony enjoying a walk through some tall grass.
Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
I like the tulip the most.

Budgie comments on Apr 2, 2020:
I love my country and the fact most of the things here can kill you. But I did a search and this one is from South Africa. That said it is was a Great White they do move from Australia to South Africa so could be a big girl. The croc is also not that large when you look at the pic with a hand on it. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/01/13/giant-crocodile--shark-head-south-african-beach_n_2467794.html?guccounter=1

I think this record is in my Dad's collection of records.
Prince Charles has been known to talk to them.
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
If you have read Good Omens I like Crowley's approach when a plant starts looking poorly he takes it around to say good bye to all of the others. His plants grow out of fear.
Yes! Lol!!!
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
RSI because of bitch slapping.
GALLAGHER & LYLE - HEART ON MY SLEEVE (1976) A good Scottish musical duo with a nice hit song.
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
I wondered who they were but they also made it to the shores of Oz as I knew that song the moment they started singing.
[youtu.be] Status Quo. - Safety Dance.
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:

[youtu.be] The Cars - Just What I Needed (Live Aid 1985)
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
Great to hear this song again.
How many concerts have I gone hoarse singing this at a concert? [youtube.com]
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
A very iconic song and loved my many me included.
Id like to thank everyone who participated in Trivia Night.
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
You can also play cards against humanity on line I am thinking of setting up a game for Australia this coming Friday. I play with some people from London but I have to get up at 4:30am to play with them. I am not sure what time I would have to be awake and thinking to join this.

Another time, another place.
Budgie comments on Apr 1, 2020:
Very peaceful and beautiful would love to be there.
I'm waiting for these to start blooming. Should happen in the next couple of weeks.
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
I am working on my close up shots of flowers. It seems to be all about framing and holding the camera steady. I like this one.
These were taken from the top of the Asoteague Lighthouse.
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
Stunning views although as I am not good with heights the second one made my stomach turn. So well done you for getting the right angles etc to make it visually stomach turning. (sorry no matter how I wrote that it seemed wrong this is the fifth iteration of that sentence I think you should be proud of the fact it made my stomach think I was there. )

Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
A beautiful country that has some wonderful backdrops and features to photograph. I like the reflection in the water.
Wild flowers from across the street.
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
I like the contrasting colours. The blue flower with the three pink ones is such an intense colour.
A sunset from August emulates the new era which is upon us.
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
Love sunrise and sunset, especially over beaches. This wet season I want to see if I can photo some of the clouds we get and if lucky maybe a lightening strike or two.
This is such a powerful photo.
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
I recall reading that when food drops were made to the camp the adults let the children eat whatever came even if it was canned ham. They knew the children needed food. Can not imagine what it must have been like to be fearing for your life and then be told you are safe.
For all of those Athiest music lovers out there... [youtu.be]

Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
Wow I did not think I knew this one but once they started singing I started to sing along, don't know where I learnt it but apparently I did.
This song has always been the backdrop of my life, so I was tickled that this compilation turned out...
Budgie comments on Mar 30, 2020:
Love to see all of the artists adding their bit to this song. It is a great song. Thanks for the share.

Mate of mine just flew back Thailand-Sydney.
Budgie comments on Mar 27, 2020:
If he is using public transport to get to Tamworth then he is a risk. There needs to be a hotel near the airport that becomes a quaratine zone. From the plane to the hotel on a bus ie disload onto the tarmac and get straight on the bus. Into rooms at the hotel and that is where they stay. No coming out, a menu choice for meals for their 14 days luggage can be delivered to them when it is deemed safe to bring it to them, family members can drop off supplies for them. Hotel can be reimbursed at 100 a day per room as they will not need to have cleaners (you can live with the same towel and sheets for 14 days and the rooms can all have 5 rolls of toilet paper for the duration.) the only staff would be cooks and a person to deliver like a hospital. And a guard on each floor or cctv on each hallway to ensure they stick to the rules. Much safer than allowing people to travel anyway they like to their homes before self isolating.

Obviously San Francisco. The second picture was taken from inside a trolley car.
Budgie comments on Mar 24, 2020:
I love the contrasting colours in the first one. The reds of the structures against the green/blue of the water.
Today I was maintaining social distance by hiking in the desert.

Love the first one the long stretch into the distance, although I have to admit to singing in my head, "On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair."

Budgie comments on Mar 4, 2020:
IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Graham was the only original member but the drummer would have been at the concert in Brisbane I saw as a kid. Graham signed my book for me (I was lucky enough to bump into the tour manager as the merch desk) A Roadie gave me Graham's copy of the song list. I have asked the center if it is possible to get the advertising banner. Once the cheeky started it did not stop. Also a couple of friends were with me and one got some vid on his phone which he will send to me later.

Am I the only one that finds it hard to accept a compliment?

I have learned to smile say Thank you even though my brain is going at ten thousand miles per hour to 1 find an exit 2 ask them why they are lying to me 3 wondering what they want from me 4 confused 5 trying to think of something nice to say about them even if I already had something to say because now I have forgotten it 6 wondering why I am there 7 working out a response that is socially acceptable and not self deprecating 8 wondering what is going to happen next etc

Welcome. As everyone has said there is a wide range of interests here check out the groups and see which ones work for you. Have fun.
A moment of truth
Budgie comments on Feb 29, 2020:
There was a TV show based around this. I can't remember what it was called and I only saw one or two episodes. Basically a group of people saw a message and the lead guy picked one person because of how he interpreted the message he saw "God is now here." while the others saw "God is no where." Okay got curious looked it up it was called Miracles and yes had a religious slant to it so probably why I never watched a lot of it.
What is your take on Principles . What is your Principal principle?
Budgie comments on Feb 29, 2020:
My thoughts are basically be as kind as you can, don't deliberately try to mess up someone's life, look out for those that can not look out for themselves. Oh and Dance like no one is watching!

This one takes me back to a speciific night in Adelaide some friends and I were on a Scouting camp, there was a disco on the top of a carpark in the city centre. We were camped on a Racetrack and there was a heatwave. The showers just had cold water but if you aimed them at the tin roof the water came down warm. This song was one played at the disco. I had so much fun at the camp.

Hey, first time posting to this .
Budgie comments on Feb 22, 2020:
From the little I know there are various forms of organic, depending on how hard you are prepared to work at it. It can be the simple growing different crops and tilling the plants back into the ground with ducks to keep the bugs down and provide some extra nutrients. To biodynamic which seems to involve a bit of mystic vibration of the cosmos apparently, https://blog.agrihomegh.com/organic-farming-types-principles/ https://biodynamics.net.au/what-are-the-biodynamic-preparations/ Personally I feel that organic is a bit kinder to the environment (I do not believe that the food tastes better) and would be cheaper than paying a company for their product each year. As I grew up in an area where the "fogger truck" would come by as we stood at the bus stop waiting for the school bus (spraying a chemical into the air to get rid of the mosquitoes) I can still to this day taste that chemical in my mouth when I feel ill. I believe the chemical they used has since been banned for use in Australia. I am reluctant to use those types of products I would rather lose a few plants/crops to bugs. I have a composter for anything the chickens do not eat. I am trying for a worm farm but it is hot here and you can lose them all when the ambient temperature gets too hot. For large scale production there are these areas being researched https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/05/21/185758529/vertical-pinkhouses-the-future-of-urban-farming https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2015/06/30/the-worlds-most-beautiful-greenhouses-are-underwater-and-growing-strawberries/
So I'm at work and I had a customer ask me if i was a lover of jesus.
