    Working in the Australian outback today.
    Incredible amount of wildlife considering how dry it is at the moment. Got an Emu family but unfortunately I was not quick enough to capture the 3 separate sightings of Incredible wedged tail Eagles on side of the road getting a feed of roadkill.

    Cactus flowering and the shoot coming out (hopefully not a death shoot) looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss story.

    A picture from my kitchen window at 3AM Wednesday morning. Not the first fire we've seen from our place.
    It was a bar across the river in Maryland. It burned until 11AM when they finally figured out they should shut the gas off to the building.
    I'm amazed there wasn't a huge explosion!

    Sorry for the bummer fire pictures. Going through my hard drive.
    Here's another view from our bedroom window. This fire was "the big one" in 2014 right after we bought our building. Burned all night right across the street.
    One reason we only bought stone and brick buildings.

    Kareoke is a a blast. Before covid it was our Friday tradition at our bar here. I love singing anything heavy cause it's mostly country hicks around here. Not that I don't have a dozen or so country songs in the rotation.

    #2277 2 years ago

    I did Working Class Hero by J Lennon. Song pictured was something out of Frozen.

    My mates old lady pulled off a great Adelle song.

    We'll be doing it again at every party i hold i reckon. I just didn't know it was so much fun.

    A corner of my dilapidated backyard, and my current view. Need to have the pool completely resurfaced and the grass/landscaping completely redone in the fall. That shit ain’t cheap, hence the dilapidation.

    Does anyone have grass in their yard in Vegas anymore? Do they have water meters ?

    If your house was built after 2005, grass in the front yard is not permitted. Homes built prior to then are grandfathered in. My house was build in 1995, and had all grass landscaping in the front, side, and backyard. I’m considering a Desert Landscaping conversion, but last estimate I got for that was nearly $45k.

    I was just curious because I grew up there. Is it expensive to fill a pool ?

    That sounds a little on the high side depending on what you want to put in, how much dirt/bad sand/soil they need to haul away. Of course I am going by California prices and I suppose things may have gone up from 7 years ago when I redid mine (and your area may be larger). When I redid my landscape I chose California natives, cacti and succulents. Love the agaves. They started small and seven years later (already removed one big dead one from rot) they are growing strong. Takes about seven years and the landscape should take care of itself if you picked plants correctly and they get acclimated. I water maybe 6 times a year if that. Last water bill was $68 for two months. Don't ask about my power bill and solid waste - that is expensive as heck .

    Anyone know what this wasp was doing? He flew past my head with it and landed on the tree. I don't even know what he was carrying.

    Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

    My guess, it's dinner. Probably an egg mass from another insect, a common meal. It could be temporarily storing the left overs.

    #2290 2 years ago

    Love the van in that picture!

    #2291 2 years ago

    What those horrible bastards do is to encase a living insect that has been stunned with their poison in with an egg. As the egg hatches and the pupae emerges it eats the living meal provided.

    snake skin (resized).pngsnake skin (resized).png

    A startling discovery. It's a 7'+ (~2.25 meters) snake skin leading into a utility access into my home's crawlspace. I used to have some filler in that void, but I guess it got pushed into the crawl.

    I think I know this guy, though. I saw a really long Eastern rat snake traversing my patio just a couple of days ago. I also saw him earlier while I was skimming the pool a couple of weeks ago. I wouldn't be surprised if this is not the one that startled me hanging in a ligustrum bush near a walkway a year or so ago.

    This guy is large for the species (an indigenous constrictor). He's been around for a while. I don't imagine I have a mice problem in my crawlspace at the moment.

    The wife is not amused.

    It's the major legal crop round here, Woolgoolga is built on bananas and extended on blueberries. Pot is the other one, but still illegal in NSW.
