Happy birthday Kidlet!
I let her stay up to midnight to watch the clock tick over and see the calendar change to the 14th of April.
And then I pointed out that it's still twelve hours till her birthday in Brazil where she was born... And she wasn't born till 2pm Bahia time.
Well close enough. She's officially 13!
And now it's bedtime.

Earth Day 2016 - My planet, my part

I had many grand ideas for a project on this theme. Having spent years walking around the world, traversing over fifty countries, living side by side with people who are - by Western standards - under developed and living in poverty, but who are the happiest and most open, generous people I've seen... I thought about what My Planet means to me.
The past 15 years, on Earth Day, I was in India, South Africa, Brazil, Costa Rica, Israel, Turkey, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and of course now Australia (and everywhere in between).

My place now is life in the rainforest, creating community, building tree houses. It's working to raise awareness of the wildlife and protect endangered species... It's raising a free range child.

But the past two weeks I've been very sick and my world got smaller. Shrunk to... more »

Daily gratitude.
Yep, it's one of those stupid positivity things.
But at the end of the day, you can let the bad stuff eat you up, or you can focus on the good things, no matter how small.

We had to cancel Kidlet's birthday plans because we're both sick. But there's always an ace up the sleeve - kidlet was born on the 14th of April, but in another calendar, she was born on yod bet Nissan
So we get a second chance. Still sick, but not so much that kidlet can't have a little cake.
Cake is always a good thing.

I'm grateful for the little flowers that grow between the cracks

I'm grateful for the little cheering up news people send me. Sorry if I've missed any notifications. Haven't looked at the stream in days.

And I know things will get better. (and we'll celebrate Kidlet's birthday properly... more »

Still on the current list - I'm grateful for ginger lemon tea. Especially served in a dalek mug. Exterminate all bacteria.
I'm grateful for chicken broth. Served at the long, dark tea time of the lingering lurgy.
I'm grateful for cheesy Sci Fi to while away the boredom of recovery.

Sorry my posts haven't been so daily recently, I'm still very sick.

I'm grateful for Autumn. In April. Living in the southern hemisphere we get the best of both. When it's cold outside, it possibly is the month of May.
I'm grateful for a warm cosy place to be.
I'm grateful for a little rain to refill the tanks.
And I'm grateful for his books to read and movies to watch. Especially with Audrey Hepburn.

Australian man shows a true love of spiders - getting bitten on the penis
And you all thought the story about redbacks under the toilet seat was just a myth!
This venomous little spider - one of Australia's most deadly - built its nest under the seat of a portable toilet, where it bit a Sydney man on his bits. (perhaps a case of taking arachnophillia too far)
Reportedly, an ambulance was called, but the bitten man took himself to the hospital in true Australian form.

Belated #SpiderSunday but well worth the wait. Absolutely gorgeous shot.

#spider +Spider Sunday​

Punching above your weight
albino spider

I don't really like this little guys chance of survival, firstly for being a freakishly white/translucent colour and secondly for having no fear of something that is much, much, much bigger than itself :) . I do suspect it was trying to protect its egg (i think) which you can see on the leaf off to the side (not water droplet dummies ;) )

However, with much leg waving, sometimes two legs at a time this little guy backed off under one of the leaves , probably  finally noticing that I was not gonna be deterred :) he was however giving me serious stick for pointing a camera in its direction :)

Exif love:

More Artsing by kidlet
She got a few Copic markers for her birthday from her godmother and she's been so absorbed in drawing for days I barely see her. I'm astonished at her progress. Girl's got talent! (at least in my biased opinion, though apparently these are just 'practise' sketches and they don't count)

ANZAC Pride
I wasn't going to mention Anzac day - Australia's national military memorial day, marked by dawn services. We memorialise our fallen soldiers on the anniversary of the landing of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps at Gallipoli in Turkey, during world war one. Gallipoli was a disaster, the Aussies and Kiwis basically sent unknowingly on a suicide mission with bad Intel as a distraction.
Only they survived and held their ground despite impossible odds. Well, a few survived in the end.

But now we have something new to remember - the acknowledgement of gay servicemen and women who served in the armed forces, and the LGBTQ members of the military who are now allowed to openly serve today.

Spider Art & The Great American Garage Sale in Fort Wayne, Indiana

On Saturday, +Blaine Hall and I headed into Indiana for a fun event at the War Memorial Coliseum: The Great American Garage Sale. It was a blast, and Blaine was in his element there. Lots of smoozing and deal-making.  Towards the end of our journey, we stumbled on this booth for K & L Laser. The artist wasn't there, but his daughter was, and she explained how her dad created this amazing cardboard art.

She said that her father, Kevin Berkshire could create some of these intricate pieces in 30 minutes! I instantly thought of +Lerato Majikfaerie with this spider work, but all of his work was awesome! He even does some busts and heads that are mind-blowing. I was significantly impressed, and the sale overall was so fun for us. It was a rare Saturday out together!

Chag Sameach
Today I'm grateful for not having to eat matzoh. It's passover, but I'm too sick to eat much of anything, and I'm pretty sure I've already filled my suffering quotient for this year's Jewish cred.

Funny story - when kidlet was about 7 we were visiting relatives in Israel and she was hankering for some wafer biscuits. But her grandmother, aunt and cousin were all trying to explain why she can’t have any. They went on telling the stories from the bible, and why we can’t eat any “Chametz” during Passover.
“But why” Kidlet kept asking, “why can’t I have wafers?” Finally her cousin had enough and said to her “Just because! We do it because we always do it and we’ve been doing it for 3000 years!”
Kidlet replied: “3000 years? I think it’s time to stop now!”

I'm grateful for not living in the holey land anymore.
And I'm grateful for friends who check in on me.

Rivers of fire - coal seam gas mining in the area and now there's so much methane bubbling into the river that it's flammable
Greens MP investigating the effects of CSG fracking found the Condamine River explodes into flame, and burned for an hour.
A representative from the mining company says this doesn't pose any risk to the public as long as they exercise common sense.
Common sense like... Don't light matches near water?
At this point I think the common sense thing to do is End coal seam gas mining!

The past 15 years, on Earth Day, I was in India, South Africa, Brazil, Costa Rica, Israel, Turkey, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and of course now Australia (and everywhere in between).

My place now is life in the rainforest, creating community, building tree houses. It's working to raise awareness of the wildlife and protect endangered species... It's raising a free range child.

Earth Day 2016 - My planet, my part

I had many grand ideas for a project on this theme. Having spent years walking around the world, traversing over fifty countries, living side by side with people who are - by Western standards - under developed and living in poverty, but who are the happiest and most open, generous people I've seen... I thought about what My Planet means to me.
The past 15 years, on Earth Day, I was in India, South Africa, Brazil, Costa Rica, Israel, Turkey, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and of course now Australia (and everywhere in between).

My place now is life in the rainforest, creating community, building tree houses. It's working to raise awareness of the wildlife and protect endangered species... It's raising a free range child.

But the past two weeks I've been very sick and my world got smaller. Shrunk to the size of my room. I haven't been out of bed, the most of the world that I can see is the view from my window. Which is the best view in the world.

So rather than making an elaborate, creative post of my own, I'll ask everyone: what does Earth Day mean to you? Make a post (or comment), what is your planet and your part?

We are a group of members of Google+ Create, a Google program for recognizing creative users of Google+. This year we are celebrating Earth Day with this small, symbolic art project with the theme: Earth Day 2016 - My planet. My part.

Daily gratitude.
Yep, it's one of those stupid positivity things.
But at the end of the day, you can let the bad stuff eat you up, or you can focus on the good things, no matter how small.

We had to cancel Kidlet's birthday plans because we're both sick. But there's always an ace up the sleeve - kidlet was born on the 14th of April, but in another calendar, she was born on yod bet Nissan
So we get a second chance. Still sick, but not so much that kidlet can't have a little cake.
Cake is always a good thing.

I'm grateful for the little flowers that grow between the cracks

I'm grateful for the little cheering up news people send me. Sorry if I've missed any notifications. Haven't looked at the stream in days.

Currently my evil genius plan is to take two spoons of cough syrup and manage to sleep through the night without constant uncontrollable coughing. They taste awful, but these are spoons I'm grateful for.

This article has it spot on. Except for one point - The ship has very much sailed on the public's trust in Telstra.

And to the argument that corporations shouldn't get involved in supporting politics - if that's true, so should the church.

Still going from my 2009 album, early in the year I was working in southern Thailand, and this sala nestled in a gorgeous tropical garden was the "bedroom" kidlet and I shared. At the time I absolutely loved it. We were living in paradise, Thai food, tropical fruits, incredible garden, lush island beaches, working with a family on a 36m yacht... Living the dream!
And I'm grateful for that time. It was awesome.

But today I'm grateful for a bedroom with extravagant luxuries like walls and a floor and a bathroom.
And I'm still grateful for soup and ginger tea.

Goanna in a sun hat!
Our friendly juvenile goanna got into the kitchen bin yesterday, cheeky fellow!
I fed him some bacon and got him comfortable enough to get a lizard-sized hat on him!
Only I'm still pretty sick and i had a coughing fit which startled the goanna before we managed to get a good photo.
Anyway, my first contribution to #lizardsinhats - the effort wiped me out and I'm back to bed-ridden status (yesterday I made it as far as the kitchen for the first time in days), but totally worth it.

Since yesterday's cuteness overload of kidlet at age 6 was so adorable, I'm sharing another.
Also because I feel too sick to go searching for another photo and the album for this series is still open. And it's easy.
So three things...

Neighbours bearing soup
Tasty soup

Telstra backflipping so much they might be training for the circus
I'm sure whomever was responsible for the unfortunate and ill advised decision to bend to pressure from the Catholic Church and withdraw support for same sex marriage in Australia must have pulled a muscle with all the back flipping.
Was anyone really fooled by the "companies shouldn't be influencing legislation" line? I mean, companies hire lobbyists to do just that, and +Telstra​ has been openly supporting LGBTQ rights for years.
It's great that Telstra are back on the right side of history... But I'm pretty sure the community aren't going to forget that their 'championing' gay rights is purely for PR and can turn with the slightest change in the wind.

I'm pretty unwell at the moment. But even on the worst days there's possibility for joy.

That's all I can do before the next coughing fit hits

XIII - Kidlet's been walking around flashing a new gang symbol
She keeps doing this salutation as she walks out of the room... Being a concerned parent, I had to confront her. What bad crowd could she be running with?
Her explanation:
She just turned 13. It's 13 in Roman numerals.
Then she demonstrated just how easy it is to express large numbers in Roman numerals using only two hands. I, V, X, C, and M are all pretty easy hands signals.
Honestly, this never occurred to me before, and apparently she worked it out by herself.
So I guess the bad gang she's running with are the geeks. They're probably going to make use of the secret hand signals to cheat on math tests, or maybe shady accounting.
At least... I hope that's what she's doing...

New Zealand leading the way in officially recognising The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
New Zealand who also was the first country to give the vote to women and one of the front runners in legalising same sex marriage. And now FSM recognition.
Come on rest of the world, catch up!
Definitely cheering up news of the day. I'd move there but they have winter and no proper spiders ;)

I figured that now that society has collapsed, I wouldn't need to wear clothes anymore, but apparently that violates some weird rule of quantum gravity.

Well I am a true believer, but I'm still not going to wear clothes.

Terry Pratchett communicated with Neil Gaiman from beyond the grave (of course the press release says "posthumous letter", but knowing those guys, we all know the truth), so Gaiman has agreed to adapt Good Omens for the screen.

Since we're both sick and I had to cancel her party, I offered to swap birthdays with her. So today will be my birthday and hers will be next month. Yay me! I'm 13 today! (heads up, kidlet is turning 37 in a month) :p
And being stuck in bed all day mostly bored, kidlet made this cheesy cute montage on her phone.

I'm still too sick to brave posting a selfie of me wearing it, the tuberculosis chic look is so last season. But I will soon.

I'm grateful for friends who care about me
I'm grateful for feeling that my world isn't quite so small and I'm not quite so alone
I'm grateful for thoughtful lizards

I let her stay up to midnight to watch the clock tick over and see the calendar change to the 14th of April.
And then I pointed out that it's still twelve hours till her birthday in Brazil where she was born... And she wasn't born till 2pm Bahia time.
Well close enough. She's officially 13!
And now it's bedtime.

Australia’s largest telco has just removed its support for same-sex marriage, allegedly due to pressure from the Catholic Church.

Currently Telstra has the contracts for all Catholic schools across the country, under pressure from the church they now pulling out of public support for same-sex marriage, rather than risk its commercial relationship with the church.

“The government has committed to putting same-sex marriage before the Australian people in a plebiscite and, ulti­mately, it will be parliament who determines any changes to the institution of marriage,” a Telstra spokesman has since responded.

“In view of this, Telstra has no further plans to figure prominently in the wider public debate.”

I'm grateful for not being able to breathe properly - using less oxygen has to be good for the atmosphere.
I'm grateful for not managing to eat anything more substantial than ginger tea and chicken broth - really it's all about saving on the grocery bills, and I'm losing weight!

After a week of being sure I'll be better in the morning, only to wake up even sicker than the day before, I dragged myself to the doctor today.
I'm very very grateful for socialised health care. I can go see my doctor, get tests done, referral to a specialist, and all treatment without having to pay for it or argue with health insurance companies hell bent on... more »
