Tag Archives: NSW Drought.

Preparing for a hot summer.

Collecting small branches around the cabin, removing leaves from all drains and using them as mulch. Summer fire permits now required on the first day of August. Winter.

99% of NSW is in severe drought.

Tomorrow removal of two trees in readiness for the demountable cabin due on the 27th August.

I have Radio National on in the back ground most of the time I am indoors.  Repeats, repeats, repeats, so if I miss part of a programme I can catch it at a later time.

GazzaFromGrongGrong  From the Guardian Comment section.
It seems there’s always someone
who’ll diss the ABC,
all just because of something
with which they can’t agree.
The Libs would like to flog it
to help the Murdochs rule,
while others just like whingeing
like little kids in school.
And me? I’d rather trust it
than Seven, Ten or Nine,
for, biased by big money,
each runs the boss’s line.
Our Auntie gives good service
and does its level best,
though hampered by restrictions,
politically stressed,
so heed the Adams warning,
resist the rise of fluff,
the dumbing down of content…
it’s time to cry: “Enough!”
Let’s value what it offers,
and if you’d like some more,
then agitate for funding —
that’s what your vote is for!
