In fact, the only bigger glasshole I know is... +Cecilia Abadie and Noble work at the same company, and Ceclia is another Glass user with a wonderful Google+ stream. +Andreas Katifes gives you a window into Greek scenes and Greek food that's so compelling you might accidentally quit your job and move to Greece. Welcome to the League, everyone! 2014-07-27 23:39:2625111240

Darsana connected cell PA04-PAPA08 Brisbane Resistance sitrep

Despite an initial lead from the local Enlightened, the Resistance pulled together an epic effort, with agents from around the region pulling together, some driving repeatedly on treacherous mountain roads and battling severe weather conditions in the rainforest. We collaborated with Resistance Agents in New Caledonia and New Zealand for international fielding, and were lucky to have help from agents all over the world for Intel and support.

Final scores for the cell: Resistance 435; Enlightened 188

Truly blessed
Even in the hardest times, I'm so grateful to have the blessing of being loved and supported.
Learning to have a few people I can trust to be true around me and let go of the hoards small people who only care about high school style dramas.

I am blessed to have the support of people who are just there. When the shit hits the fan, will just be there. People who see the truth. Holding me up when I can't stand.

My house is full of love and laughter and ridiculousness and cake and bacon. And then I get taken by surprise for a secret gourmet picnic in the rainforest at the top of a mountain with the best lookout of all...

(Hint: I'm in this picture, but you can't see me because I blend into the forest)

Super surprise Secret Santa!

I was really unwell and not online for a few months this year so I didn't get around to signing up for the G+ +Secret Santa​...
But some tricksy pixie was clever enough to find kidlet's list from last year and sent a gift - not even a gift that was on last year's list, but a very thoughtfully chosen Doctor Who Yahtzee!

Big thanks to +Connie n <3 best #santagift ever is the one you didn't even know you were getting <3

Green eyed diversion
My previous post contains extremely graphic content of an arachnoid nature unsuited to all audiences.
So because I'm such a thoughtful person, I try to post a nice, diversionary, non spidery picture for the folks out there who don't love seeing spiders in the stream.
And given that this week's SpiderSunday pic is particularly graphic, I figured I should find something particularly distracting.

Found and old picture and set it to filter only green. My eyes are just that colour :)

Auto awesome cake story
I know I didn't post much the past few months, but life did happen, and look, Google made some "Story" with a nice little slideshow of random photos, so I don't have to do anything but hit the share button.

This was back at Hallowe'en. Kidlet's best friend came to stay for the week and celebrate her 13th birthday here with us.

Me being me, I made a cake. And it being at my house, there was a snake. Everything was awesome except for the part where there was a gaggle of tween girls having a sleepover in a tent on the trampoline right under my bedroom window and they giggled ALL night.

Tickle tickle
Last minute huntsman for #SpiderSunday  
This fine fellow was sitting on my kitchen door, and posed happily for several shots. I got quite a few nice ones, but someone suggested I put in a banana for scale, only I didn't have a banana. So there's my hand. The spider is bigger.

Yay for spider science

Eight potentially new species of spiders have been found living in India’s Parambikulam Tiger Reserve. The reserve is in the Western Ghats regions, which is known for being a biodiversity hotspot.___Yay for spider science

Super fascinating stuff! Colours and the way people perceive them is one of my favourite topics. I've long been studying the effect of language and cultural conditioning on color perception.

#colour #science

How do I know you see the same color blue that I do?
#sciencesunday

My whole life I have had arguments with people over shades of colors, in particular blue, green, and gray. Knowing my mother's brothers had a mild form of color blindness, I eventually figured I just inherited a bad ability to see color, joked about being color blind, and gave up trying to match clothes and decorate my house. I have a closet full of black and red clothes, and let other people do the painting.

I felt much better when I learned about tetrachromats.
Apparently there is this really cool genetic thing that happens when a woman inherits a mutated green cone (the most common kind of male color blindness is deuteranomoly, an altered sensitivity in the green receptors, and occurs in 5% of European males) from her maternal side and a regular cone from her dad's side. If there is unequal X chromosomal inactivation in the eye, she can end up with 4 kinds of cones, instead of the usual three. (A regular blue, a regular red, a regular green, and an altered green).
This theoretically opens her up to seeing a million shades of color, much more than the typical trichromat person.
Some researchers in Newcastle have identified women like this and estimate about 12% of women have this trait.
Here are some great links if you'd like to know more. There are some online tests, but the only way to know for sure is genetic testing.

I choose my family
I love that my home is filled with love and that my family is growing.
In shedding so many people from my life that I thought were friends, all I can say is I'm grateful for the few who were left behind; those who helped me become stronger, those who stayed, and those who stepped up to fill the spaces in my heart with laughter and warmth.
I love the adventures we're having and how love multiplies and the happiness of a full home :)

Diversionary Sunrise
Thanks to my old friend insomnia, found myself wandering down by the creek at sunrise. Enjoy the view, and if you don't enjoy spiders, then perhaps linger here and soak in the ambiance. Be warned that my previous post is very spidery.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
In Australia, we know the holiday season is upon us with the invasion of Christmas Beetles. They're a rather annoying beetle, with many varieties in the family Anoplognathus that fly all over the place and loudly bash into the windows and get caught in one's hair. Some of them are gorgeously coloured, but many are boringly yellow-brown.

They do, however make an awesome #buggylunch  for the local huntsman population, and a happy addition to #SpiderSunday  :)

Good morning!!
First: coffee.

Coffee with TimTam slams is a balanced, nourishing breakfast. After all, coffee is a fruit. And sugar is dehydrated vegetable juice. Milk is a good source of protein and calcium, chocolate contains antioxidants and magnesium, and the wheat in the biscuits is a healthy grain for a nutritious breakfast.

Good morning!!

Truly blessed
Even in the hardest times, I'm so grateful to have the blessing of being loved and supported.
Learning to have a few people I can trust to be true around me and let go of the hoards small people who only care about high school style dramas.

I am blessed to have the support of people who are just there. When the shit hits the fan, will just be there. People who see the truth. Holding me up when I can't stand.

My house is full of love and laughter and ridiculousness and cake and bacon. And then I get taken by surprise for a secret gourmet picnic in the rainforest at the top of a mountain with the best lookout of all...

(Hint: I'm in this picture, but you can't see me because I blend into the forest)

Sleepy Koala
just as a diversionary tactic to placate the people disturbed by spiders, I also provide this charming distraction - a Koala I saw today while out and about running errands. I got worn out and overwhelmed, suffering from intense back pain and had to sit under a shady tree for a bit. 
Lo! There was a friendly fellow munching leaves.
Thankfully not a drop bear, because not everything in Australia is trying to kill you.

Spider Net
For a very belated #SpiderSunday  post - I am currently hosting houseguests from Switzerland - +Juliane Clausen and +Tonnerre Lombard; who are possibly the best house guests ever. 

And me being the great host that I am, provided them with a mosquito net over their bed to protect them from the Australian rainforest life...

Of course, there was also a rather large huntsman spider inside the net; I'm sure he just thought he was being helpful in reducing the mosquito population for our guests, but apparently they didn't enjoy the idea of sleeping with a cuddly spider.
So we moved him to the outside of the net. Balance restored.

Hey hey! It's Spider Sunday

I know it's been too long. But it's Sunday, and here's a spider.
A cute little jumping spider (it's tiny, about 5mm/ 1/4" but looks bigger because he's resting on a gumnut) has caught a nasty, hateful biting fly.

I loathe those flies, they're massive and they bite and it hurts and itches and swells up. So yay little spider!

Darsana connected cell PA04-PAPA08 Brisbane Resistance sitrep

Despite an initial lead from the local Enlightened, the Resistance pulled together an epic effort, with agents from around the region pulling together, some driving repeatedly on treacherous mountain roads and battling severe weather conditions in the rainforest. We collaborated with Resistance Agents in New Caledonia and New Zealand for international fielding, and were lucky to have help from agents all over the world for Intel and support.

Final scores for the cell: Resistance 435; Enlightened 188

YOLO
Kidlet bought herself an owl kigarumi.
Apparently this is the latest fad and it's basically big soft plushie onsie character suits. Like being your own stuffed animal.
Kidlet wanted an owl, though she almost got pikachu.
She was so excited when she got it, she pranced around taking selfies saying "YOLO!"
When I groaned at this, she explained,
YOLO - You obviously Love Owls!
I have raised my daughter right.

Iran and Israel - my story

Back in 2004, I had a vision - a dream, if you will. I am a member of a group called the Rainbow Family (it's kind of a neo-hippie festival, you can google it, but that's not the point), and I had a vision that the Rainbow Family Gathering could happen in the Middle East - in a place where both Israelis and Iranians (and Syrians and Lebanese and Jordanians and in fact all the world) could come and gather together in peace.

I shared my dream at the council at the World Rainbow Family Gathering in Costa Rica (this is the council where it will be decided in which country the next World Rainbow Gathering would be). I said Turkey (the country, not the bird).

A lot of people argued against me. A lot of people said I was crazy - they said you can't have a Rainbow Gathering in Turkey - Midnight Express, Muslims, Military state... They said there is no way any Middle Eastern people would come. They said it would be a disaster and that there was no way Israelis would be able to be at a festival peacefully with Iranians.

At that time, I didn't personally know any Iranians, but I held my vision, I spoke my dream. And some people caught on. The council reached consensus, and the gathering happened.

I got myself to the Middle East, I walked my talk and went to Turkey to help find the place for the Gathering to be held. I spread the word, I promoted it. And I went there, with my baby daughter.

It was a beautiful place in the mountains of Southern Turkey. There was people from all over the world - Australians, Americans, Canadians, Germans, English, French, Italians, Turkish... about 40 countries were represented, in fact. And lots of Israelis. We all had fun, we sang songs and at food together and camped out.

And then one day, about a week into the month-long festival, a big truck drove right up to the main fire area - we ran over to ask the truck driver to leave, because Rainbow Gatherings are car-free zones; there's a car-parking area a short walk away, but we had problems with locals driving in all the time.

But before we could say anything about the truck being in what we feel is a sacred space, people started pouring out.

Iranians.

Twenty-one Iranians, men and women. They'd heard about the gathering and come together, caravanning all the way from Teheran. They'd been travelling for a few days in trucks, and they'd brought a king's ransom of food to share (dried fruits and nuts from Iran, and spices to start a chai tent).

They poured out of that truck, and kissed the ground, and we crowded around them and hugged them, and cried "Welcome Home!" (because that's what you say to newly arriving people at Rainbow Gatherings.)

And before I knew it, there was a mob of Israelis hugging Iranians hugging Israelis. And Germans. And Aussies, and Dutch and South Africans and Turks and Danes and Swiss... And we were all just people.

In the days that came, the Iranians set up a camp and started hosting parties and serving food and chai (in Rainbow Gatherings, everything is shared freely; there is no commerce). So many friendships were formed.

Someone called for a "talking circle" (basically a group meeting where people sit in a circle and take turns talking) to discuss Peace. It was mostly Israelis and Iranians that came. 

Virtually every one in that circle - Iranians and Israelis alike said the same thing:

"I grew up thinking the others were evil people who just hate us and want to bomb us, and we only want peace, I had no idea that the others are people just like us, who also want peace."

So many tears were shed, so many hugs were shared, and so many deep friendships forged.

This was my vision, and it carries on today - the "Peace in the Middle East" Rainbow Family Gatherings are still happening every year, mostly in Turkey, and I now have many friends from Iran, and from Israel.

Let go of your politics, let go of fear, let go of assumptions and media scaremongering and hate. Let go of fear, and see that we are all just people who want Peace.

Australian senator Penny Wong speaks out against homophobia

For every homophobe, there are hundreds of thoughtful, tolerant, decent and ethical people,” Senator Penny Wong reminds us with her speech today.

Reacting to Ian Thorpe’s coming out interview and footy commentator Brian Taylor’s ‘big poofter’ remark at the weekend, Wong said homophobia shouldn’t be laughed off, as it obviously affects the lives of so many LGBTI Australians.

“It’s no joke to be caught in the crossfire of prejudice, and it’s no joke to live with the fear of being rejected, or vilified, or persecuted because of who you are,” she said.

Australian senator Penny Wong speaks out against homophobia

For every homophobe, there are hundreds of thoughtful, tolerant, decent and ethical people,” Senator Penny Wong reminds us with her speech today.

Reacting to Ian Thorpe’s coming out interview and footy commentator Brian Taylor’s ‘big poofter’ remark at the weekend, Wong said homophobia shouldn’t be laughed off, as it obviously affects the lives of so many LGBTI Australians.

“It’s no joke to be caught in the crossfire of prejudice, and it’s no joke to live with the fear of being rejected, or vilified, or persecuted because of who you are,” she said.

“That fact is, we still hear homophobic comments and slurs bandied around as if they’re acceptable, harmless, just a bit of a laugh. Well it isn’t a laugh to a young person growing up, working out who they are, surrounded by an atmosphere of hostility. They can feel alone, isolated from their peers, isolated from their community and sometimes even their family.”

Recent research into students in Australian schools, and sporting culture survey results revealed today show that homophobia is still a major issue with most people – gay and straight – on the receiving end of anti-gay slurs.

Good on you Penny for speaking up. Good on you Ian Thorpe for coming out.

I'm not sure what this means but it must be good.

What a brilliant post for #SpiderSunday

Friends, Not Foes -- Bingham, Illinois
A large wolf spider suns herself deep in the woods of southern Illinois. There are over 4000 known species of spiders in the United States and Canada combined. Of these, only 4 species have been determined to have "medically significant" bites - the Black Widow, the Brown Recluse, the Parson Spider, and the Sac Spider. And of these four, only the Widow and the Recluse can cause anything more than minor, localized allergic reactions in humans - if they bite, which they usually don't. So practically speaking, only the Widow and Recluse are of any danger to humans, and both are shy (i.e. "recluse"), non-aggressive spiders that are easily avoided.

More information can be found here: http://goo.gl/bCtReO

In addition, spiders are generally beneficial to humans. From the Bayer website:

Spiders eat pests: Spiders feed on common indoor pests, such as roaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, flies and clothes moths. If left alone, spiders will consume most of the insects in your home, providing effective home pest control.

Spiders kill other spiders: When spiders come into contact with one another, a gladiator-like competition frequently unfolds – and the winner eats the loser. If your basement hosts common long-legged cellar spiders, this is why the population occasionally shifts from numerous smaller spiders to fewer, larger spiders. That long-legged cellar spider, by the way, is known to kill black widow spiders, making it a powerful ally.

Spiders help curtail disease spread: Spiders feast on many household pests that can transmit disease to humans –mosquitoes, fleas, flies, cockroaches and a host of other disease-carrying critters.

So, please be conservative and thoughtful when thinking about doing any pest control when it comes to spiders. We don't want them to overrun our houses, no. But neither should we fear them or seek to eradicate them based solely on the fact that they're spiders. So learn to identify the Widow and Recluse (both very easy to definitively identify), and rather than killing any spider out of hand, please think first about the possibility of relocating them if you don't want them in your house.

Cheers. :-)

Kidlet the fantasy artist
Kidlet has been working on developing her Dungeons and Dragons character for the 2nd ed AD&D game she's DMing with her friends...
So she's drawn a picture of her character. I'm kinda dumbstruck by her artistic talent.

And don't be fooled by the cuteness. She rolled a natural 20 for skill with the bow and has insane dexterity and charisma.

Kidlet made 16 bit minecraft cookies!
I'm so impressed I've lost all ability to can. Her artistic skills and creativity lately have skyrocketed!
I'll post progress shots, details and recipe tomorrow.
Apparently I have to buy more green food colouring so she can make creepers.
