Little guy was eating my grass...
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
He looks a bit like he is giving you the stink eye, probably nervous but cute the colours are really great in the photo she blends in with the rocks and straw but stands out against the grass.
Small shy friends
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
I am working on my ability to photograph small with the lenses I currently own. Yours are great.
I did come across these interesting flowers next to the bike trail anybody knows the name?
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
I love the colour contrasts in the last photo, the orange of the lily really pops out.
Good morning.
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
Smooth song love the beat to it and her voice.

Maybe she is feeling cold. So cute I love snuggle dogs. My two slept on my bed one at my hip and one at my knees. If I rolled over I had one in the small of my back and one in the crook of my knees. Miss by snuggle pups.
Two here .

Love it great use of wordage now I am off to get the hearing back in my left eye.
Hot πŸ”₯ Dog πŸ•
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
As a vegetarian this statement is a bit like when a group of us went to see Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp version) and halfway through as my friend turned pale I leaned over and said, "There are days I am glad I am a vegatarian." She would not eat pies after that I still don't think she eats pies. I may have been a hotdog in my childhood but have not ever been one in the last 30 odd years.
Double check and make sure you don't forget your ticket.

Thin Lizzy - Don't Believe A Word [youtube.com]
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
Always loved Thin Lizzy thanks for the share. Interesting that you used to see him around town, I grew up in a small mining town and ended up learning Asian cooking from the mother of and babysitting the nephew and neice of an Australian rock musician. Also later taught his nephew when I became a teacher, never met the man I doubt he came to visit them.

Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
My parents played him a lot as well, I love his music.
Ninja say what!?
Budgie comments on Jul 9, 2020:
Okay trying to work out what he means is he saying that white supremacists are trying to reduce the population of city dwellers/people of colour/people in general? And has he not joined forces with the white supremacists party and therefore is one of the people doing this? This statement loops around and bites itself, my brain feels like it is trying to read an Escher picture. I know that it is given he does not understand what planned parenthood actually do and is only repeating what he has been told but it still hurts to read.

Budgie comments on Jul 8, 2020:
His music is beautiful. Thank you for the calming start to my day.
I thought I'd sneak this in here with the aussies lest I offend our American friends.
Budgie comments on Jul 8, 2020:
That someone could be that ignorant about Maths and assume they can function for 24 hours without sleep and safely drive a car. Mind you I know of people who boast about how quickly they drove from Darwin to Brisbane or reverse and they probably were not sleeping much. Way too dangerous on those roads.

Who says classical music doesn't have an effect on children?
Budgie comments on Jul 7, 2020:
Strange I use Mozart to help my class calm down, had one boy who I taught for one lesson after recess (loaded up on recess and running around) he would come in calm down and sit with his foot keeping the beat. Next lesson back in his room he started to run amuck again.
If you ever wonder how new words come about I can for sure say kids can be inventive.
Budgie comments on Jul 7, 2020:
We were playing Trivial Pursuit, Mum got a question (lost in time no idea what it was) her answer (wrong) was going to be "Come with me to the Casbah were we shall dine on smorgasboard sausages." (should I add we had all been drinking?) Instead what came out was "Come with me to the Casbah where we shall dine on spazbogpherofogus." (we have had to guess at the spelling) it became a great answer when you did not know the answer and we have called our house spazbogpherofogus.
Good morning all.

Budgie comments on Jul 7, 2020:
I remember when this came out. It would get played in the nightclubs. We all waved an arm in the air while bobbing up and down. Don't ask me why I have no idea. Something like what happens at about the 3 min mark in this clip.

Double Delight - probably my favorite rose, it smells absolutely delightful
Budgie comments on Jul 6, 2020:
Love the water droplets on the petals. I like trying to take photos of roses. Love the smell as well.

Budgie comments on Jul 4, 2020:

Love the close ups of the insects they are cute and well done.
More bee butts 😊❀
Budgie comments on Jul 4, 2020:
Love the theme of Bee Butts. Great shots of a busy little insect I think if I tried they would just be blurred.

Love the branches on the bricks, great shots. Lots of places to find interesting angles, colours, shapes etc to photograph.
My kid's school held a zoom meeting last night.
Budgie comments on Jul 4, 2020:
You are not being paranoid you are thinking about your children and the risks they could be exposed to. I would ask about handwashing. I am a teacher but my area never had community spread (NT in Australia) so our risks were less and our school never shut down but we did the following. Hand sanitizer or hand washing as they came into the class, assigned desks no shifting around and spaced as far away from each other as possible. No contact sports no using the gym equipment unless it could be wiped down between each person (size of class and age of students relevant here). The school employed extra cleaners during the day who went around after each break to wipe down drink fountains (which were only to be used to fill student's own water bottles) seating and toilets. We don't have the same meals as you do our students bring their own from home. Basic hygiene practices for utensils, trays, plates, wearing gloves, masks and hairnets. Maybe the kitchen staff can set up the trays with utensils, plates etc so the students take a tray with everything on it. Or change the food to prepacked food ie sandwiches, or in reusable/recyclable containers with a spoon/fork attached, (send in your own utensils for the students to use, take home and wash) Thinking back to scouts where we had our own kit and were responsible for cleaning it and packing it back up. Spacing out the students even having different times for different grades, we staggered our canteen where children line up to buy foods so that different year levels were going at different times to collect or buy their food. We did a lot of education with the students on why the precautions were necessary and how it can help prevent the spread of the disease and by how much (I teach special ed students and even they got the idea and if someone touched their face they were told by the other students to go and wash their face) With the masks get creative and use favourite characters from books, TV or movies to decorate see if the teachers can come up with some kind of award for students who do the best at wearing their masks. Also how the mask is attached using the ears does become a problem. Social distancing is hard especially the younger the students but maybe the school could come up with some activities in the playground ie hopscotch, elastics, skipping that students can play together but still keep some distance. Our seating in the yard was rearranged to keep students in groups but socially distant where possible. It is never going to be 100% but it will all help. There is also some beginning research into why children are less likely to get the disease or be as ill. If that helps you be reassured. ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNEeq5qGh8I https://www.australiangeographic.com.au/topics/wildlife/2013/03/australias-dangerous-animals-the-top-30/ Seriously you have to wonder how we survive here. Please not many cases are due to a human being in the animals environment or trying to interact with the animal rather than leaving it alone. That said when I get bitten by a bull ant I get massive swelling and pain and half the time I did not even know they were there in the first place.

Surely a god that would create a beautiful voice would not then allow him to be born with congenital glaucoma and to be blinded by a soccer ball to the head. Sorry the medical condition and accident were malicious acts that are not made up by giving him a beautiful voice. I refuse to follow a capricious god better that there is no god and it is just bad luck/genetics/disease.
Coleman hawkins, HELLO LOLA,.

It is a happy tune, at least that is what I get from it. Can just about see them dancing to it if I have my era right. If not well it is only in my head so it does not matter.
Probably not many are a fan of this song, but I have to play it today: Elmer's Tune, by Benny ...
Budgie comments on Jul 2, 2020:
Great to have memories that are linked to things and a catchy tune as well.
No shit sorry

I can see a wall getting built by both Canada and Mexico to keep the American's at bay I am pretty sure at this point the rest of the world will chip in a bit to make sure no one come to their country from America, it is spiraling out of control there.

Budgie comments on Jul 1, 2020:
Set up a pentacle in your backyard, go out and lay some food in it give the demon a name and call for him. Put out some water it must be as hot as hell. Then pretend to throw a ball for it to retrieve, pat it etc. Tie a rope to the hill hoist or a tree and spend some time teaching it how to skip, especially when the neighbours are out in their yard. Oh and video please. I would send a letter to Paul Skelley informing him that under no circumstances is he or any of his congregation allowed on your property and should be enter your property then you will be calling the police, quote the phone conversation as your reason why he should not enter. Send it certified with a return certificate. If he or anyone enters your property call the police. Have fun and let us know what happens.

Budgie comments on Jul 1, 2020:
Doesn't tend to happen to me. I even once sat by myself (my father was in a brass band I had given him a lift in to a performance and was having a cuppa while I waited) as I could see some nutter trying to work the crowd but I must have been too scary and giving off the "Come on make my day vibe." He never came over to my area, I even had a spare chair for him to sit on noticed that he was going after the young Asian women who were by themselves. Coward.

A Pastor Wants to Replace “White Privilege” With the “White Blessing” of Slavery | Beth ...
Budgie comments on Jun 16, 2020:
Let's not be making white people uncomfortable, I teach indigenous students and non indigenous and we have open conversations about how race affects people and how some people are judged solely on their race without any thought to them as a person, I TEACH SPECIAL ED and these kids get it, they can talk about how they are treated we talk about The Stolen Generation and why it happened and what happened to those children. One of my indigenous students has stated that he would never go to America as he is too scared he would be shot by the police, and we discuss why some of them are safe to walk down a street in America but he would not be and that is White Privilege. I guess our kids are tougher as they have all faced some sort of discrimination having disabilities so they have some idea of being judged because of that but please note they also have intellectual impairments which affect their reasoning (I have a class with 4 ASD children who are constantly telling each other not to do things and that is not the right way to do something and struggle with changes to routines) but they get the idea of White Privilege.

Budgie comments on Jun 15, 2020:
I think that the two tiered system was to prevent a federal government from having too much power, however as a teacher my teaching registration board card is useless out side of my state my working with children card is useless outside of my state, I think having national standards and requirements would allow for better movement from one state to another. If I moved to another state I lose all of my sick leave and have to apply for another job. I also have to resign from my current job.

Budgie comments on Jun 8, 2020:
If he is at another gathering and start spouting rubbish, stand up and walk out, come back after a time if he is still speaking walk out again, if he confronts you just tell him he has nothing to say that is valid. Walk away don't respond to him do not validate his replies, after that just ignore him. If others do the same he loses his audience and will be silenced (he is going to say a lot of nasty stuff at you trust me) get others to walk with you.
