  • i am hoping it is a beautiful day today. it is looking promising. and hopefully i wont get stuck home working so as i can bail and go for a very very long walk and vit D my ass off. i did not see a single rabbit. the neighbour has put a bucket of pindone down in the paddock behind us so it must be working as i have noticed the cat trying to scrounge food whenever i am near the fridge and she had a couple of sparrows yesterday. she usually leaves the birds alone. i am not into all those haemoragic poisons as i have seen the dying rabbits. i much prefer people shoot them but i guess for the farmers they just dont have time to get that many.

    danielfire we have a septic tank so i cant chemical bomb anything here.

      These bloody worm systems are a nightmare !!!!!!! people keep putting stuff down my drains that kill them....next thing you know the toilets are blocked up, the smell of our doo...daaa... is appaulling and we have to replace the little things !
      but its hard to control what everyone puts down the sink, so i give up !!!!!!
      our biolytix system sux !!!!!!
      rant over for the day....i think !!!!!!

      I agree with you on the poisons. My concerns are what is it doing to the other creatures that eat the carcasses, and what an horrific way to die !!!!!

      anyway we best not get onto that topic. When Middle DD went out shooting for the first time....she arrived home and excitedly told me that she had shot her first rabbit. where is it, I asked.....it hopped away - said she.....so maiming an animal is really bad too !

      Right I had best get me back to work

        yes poison doesnt just get the target pest species. other things eat the poison too. and well as the carrion eaters getting nailed. it does still look like an awesome day today. sun is out and it is warm with stuff all wind.

        • it's a beautiful windy/cloudy day here, but a warm wind-- which is nice.

          we took DS to his caretaker, and she wasn't there. He was so disappointed (she's the mom of his best friend)! But, he's being very good at the office right now.

          we are running one of those voucher deals. I hope to sell a lot of them. So far we are at 92 -- which isn't bad since it's before 10 am. last time we ran the deal we sold 211. I'm hoping we do more this time. We tend to retain about 20% (which is good for these deals -- most people retain less than 5%).

            Thanks for all the advice everyone. It was the waste disposal that backed up (I know I should compost but I'm too lazy), and I was washing the pots in the other sink at the same time so I ended up with two sinks full of skungy smelly water. Apparently the blockage was way down too, it took my poor DH over an hour to clear it last night. But he was very good and didn't get mad at me.

              • made it thru today. around the 6k block with the dog first thing and then i skipped lunch and did the 13 or so k block up the big hills. there were a few moments where i did wonder if i was going to make it up the hill but i was kinda stuck as i had to make it up a different hill to get out, which ever way i went lol but yeah. made it and once i was up all the hills, it was easy again. i am feeling super ratty now prob from over training. sheep drafting with the neighbour tomorrow which should be fun. he has this real cold old big barky huntaway who entertains me heaps as it is so comical the way it herds sheep by barking at them. and it has very big paws.

                  • So, tonight, DS went to sleep by himself! I just had to tell him what to expect, and he was fine. We even got to watch TWO Doctor Who (9th incarnation down, onto the 10th).

                    We're definitely going to have DS going to sleep on his own now, so that we aren't tied to the bed for an annoying number of hours waiting to eat. This will help with IF.

                    Good day overall. Was able to get in a nice long walk plus also a good bit more yoga than usual in. So, a good physical experience today all around. Now it's time for bed.

                    Also, holding to 3 cups of tea per day, plus also sugar free (sweetener free, too). That's been an interesting process that took relatively no effort.

                    • Well done Zoebird. Thats a huge step for DS, but once he feels confident....he will be fine.

                        that is a subject that is so complex and so convoluted. but short answer. yes. i personally believe the future is fluid so you get possibilities. but you also get those rhinos falling out the sky which are your fate you cant escape. i think too you attract and can shape your fate. i always say of my exhusband that his life is his judgement so say, earlier on in his life, you could see things which could have happened to him. he chose certain paths which were there, or refused to see certain opportunities, didnt see the signs etc so what you saw all those years ago may or may not have eventuated. ditto with another family member i know whose fate is not to have a random rhino fall out of the sky on his head just yet. but he is also ignoring some other part of his destiny so he does silly stuff like rolls cars and flies off the road managing to fit between 2 very solid objects with an inch of clearance either side. basically life is tapping him on the shoulder and he is not listening so one day, they will get tired of saving him. so yes, multifacteted and confusing. then there are the feathers. but we wont go there right now lol

                          • The mayan calendar is no big deal. honestly, what happens every year on Dec 31? The end of the world or the beginning of the new year (a new calendar)? obviously, the second.

                            In terms of the mayans, like many ancient people, ages have different "flavors." In the vedic calendar, for example, we are in the age of Kali (or the age of decomposition). The next age will be an age of growth, the first or beginnings of a golden age. There are three ages which is regeneration, golden, and then decomposition.

                            The mayans saw this last age as the same -- an age of decomposition -- so the next age is a regeneration age. So, it's the "end" as in we are completely composted, and out of that arises new growth.

                            ok? no worries.
