I have included some more video of the Rainforest on our property, It’s a small snippet only.
Please allow a little indulgence as all I am trying to show is that it’s this sort of natural beauty that is being destroyed in many parts of the world where rainforest is not protected.
This type of rainforest is home to many birds and animals and needs to be protected.
Please relax for 2 and a half minutes and enjoy the footage. More footage to come in the future.

This is a waterfall in the rainforest on our property. I never get tired of walking to this spot and just sitting and watching the water flow over the rock face.

As one of the comments states, humans are natural procrastinators! Please spread the word, get your local members of parliament to vote to do something real about managing global warming. We seriously need to implement real change to stop climate change.

This is just another in a line of “We are not that big in the whole scheme of things”. I would’nt like to be an early explorer trying to circumnavigate some of these huge planets or stars.

Just what will we experience here on Earth if the temperature rises by Six Degrees. Watch the video and you may get some idea.
Global Warming is happening. Places are drying up. Just to give an example that I have experienced, When I was a young kid I lived in Canberra, which is the capital city of Australia. We would regularly travel past a place called Lake George when visiting relatives who lived about 6 hours north of Canberra. My memory is that the Lake always semed to be full everytime we would pass it. For a number of years in the period around 1975 to 1983 this lake was regularly full or close to it. For the last 20 years or so that I have regularly travelled past the lake, it always seems to be dry or almost dry. Now this is just one example, however many people that I speak to have mentioned similar stories about more regular dry spells in the last 20 years or so, especially in Southern New South Wales in Australia.
You may have similar experiences from when you were younger, or you may disagree with me, either way I would like to hear from you through our comments.

Apparently our own Sun has been a little quiet of late. With fewer sun spots and magnetic fields which are a little weaker than usual.
During this quiet period the Sun is displaying less intense solar flares, Sun spots and storms.
According to NASA scientists this is the quietest period of solar activity since 1913 and it is good news for us here on Earth. The less solar activity means better GPS navigation, Satellites stay in orbit longer and even the effects of Climate change are minimised, although only marginally with a 0.3 degree cooling at the most.

The words to this song may sadly be considered too inocent, too simple and so many would overlook the importance of simply trying your best to be friendly and respectful of all people no matter what their race, religion or beliefs. Sadly we are seeing some of the most intense bombarding of inocent people in Gaza by the Israelis in return for what they say is attacks on civilians by Hamas. Who is to blame.
I don’t think blaming someone is going to solve this fighting. Unfortunately I think this continued fighting is not going to be solved overnight, It may take generations of gradual change. Children need to be taught respect for other people and as they grow and become people in charge of the countries, only then will change start to happen.
So if you feel like you can do nothing to help, why not sit back and listen to the words of this song and maybe think about talking to your next door neighbour or that person down the road, who may not have the same colour skin as you, but is still a member of the same human race as you belong to.

The Australian Lyrebird would have to be one of the most amazing animals on Earth. It can mimic virtually anything it hears. So don’t be fooled if you are in the bush and hear a pack of wild dogs coming toward you, it might just be a lyrebird, OR it may be a pack of dogs, who knows you had better get out of there anyway, just in case.
