A couple of photos that caught my fancy this week.  Basement Cat doesn’t take kindly to his partners choice of doona covers.  Sammy boy and his master slave have something in common there.

A fair whack of our superannuation fund is tied up in shares and the GFC made us all wonder how the stock market really operates.

Yuk! How it all works

This sunset a couple of days ago.  “Red sky at night, Shepherd’s delight”. 

Sunset over Ocean Grove

Hardly, as we’ve had quite a bit of this.

    Our Irish Mother told me that “red sky at night shepherd’s delight; red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning. However, she also told me that applied only to the northern hemisphere and was opposite here in Australia. Maybe that explains the terrible storms Melbourne just has experienced. No matter what, what a beautiful photo. Who would want to live any where else in the world. (Biased Aussie)

    Mary – An old proverb passed down since the 1300’s and has no real predictive meaning.

    For me it was always “sailor’s delight”.
    I heard you’ve had a few little rain showers recently!

    They’ve had massive floods up in QLD. We’ve had 50mm of rain in the last 2 days which is great. 30mm of that fell in about an hour last night. I had a river flowing down the side of the house.
