Lovecraftian Christmas.

Not that I mind. Since I extirpated the rats in the walls and threw open the Summer Palace to the full blast of Nature's fury there has been a change of fauna. A rather reptilian one. It's quite the Jurassic Park. Last night  I noticed a geko, all nocturnal and Golemesque footpaddedly clinging, to the window pane. It's eyes were huge.

This beauty, however, is very much the predatory creature of the blazing daylight. It lives under the bed.

Rustlings against the tin roof portend the arrival of a larger one.

I am tempted to try to get some footage to put together a short.

Bush Fire Brigade

I have been involved in the local Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade since mid year and have done my training and had a play with a few controlled burns. It is quite fascinating learning how to steer a fire and just how close you can get to the flames with the excellent PPE they give us. The boots are epic. Last week we put out a fire on a property and it was gratifying to see how relieved the lady and her two kiddies were.

My limited web design skills are going to have the dust puffed off, as I have taken up the job of updating the SVFB Site.

 Here is a pic of the fire truck -  the light is crap and it ain't publishable - it's just a snap.
