Has looked out of back window at Skippyburgh.


Seen smoke cloud of 10,000ft or so just about 5 km away to the east.

Watched while wind shifted from north to southwest and seen effect on smoke cloud. Somewhat similar to end of Mordor, but with more baked rabbits.


Hopes fire fronts won't get to treehouse as thought of smoked Speckles is too much bear.

Exit to watch telly where banner headline states 10,000ha/25000 acres burned so far. At 2 skippys per acre that is a lot of petfood.


Stops and thinks: "Happy new year" to everybody"

reads above posts.

rues pet food joke

stops rabbiting on about it

Fires still burn but it's the smoke that is the problem as one cannot operate external feed airconditioners as they suck in the smoke.

there are more than 700 fire fighters on the ground, some from Victoria and New South Wales. That's more than the population of most towns in SA.

More of 38C today and tomorrow and then thunderstorms which will bring lightning and away we go again.

We are thinking of going on a cruise on the Rhine that they keep advertising
between pictures of the devastation.


Hopes chocolate pies in Treehouse are not affected. These are marked 's' for succulent.

Also has noticed extra pinkiness of Speckles and have remedied situation by hiding all the prawn crackers.

Is awaiting the return of the multicoloured pachyderm and will then celebrate with pink champagne.

'Elephant becomes dizzy'

Wonders if this is a long lost play by Sophocles or possibly Aristophanes?

Wonders what a real life dizzy elephant would be like. Would it play the ivories?

Are there lefthanded elephants? If so, would they go around in circles in the opposite direction to right handed elephants?

What would happen if a left handed elephant met a right handed elephant? Are elephants quantum? If so would there be an mutual annihilation and the formation of a new sets of quantum elephant particles?

Would we then end up to our orifices in elephant produced by products?

Thanks fortune we only have kangaroos and thylacine to contend with in Australia.

Cannot state exactly what quantum entanglement of Speckleses would be.However: elephant -> e le phant -> which leads to -> following statements by the great Oracle of Google (NOT 'Googol' which is much smaller


phant - Word Info
wordinfo.info/unit/1628
phant-, phanta-, phas-; -phasic, -phant. (Greek: manifest; show, appear, make appear, make visible, display; visible; to show [through], to shine [through]; ..

phantasmic
A reference to the nature of a phantasm; unreal; illusory; spectral (something existing in perception only or a ghostly appearing figure).


So DOES SPECKLES EXIST, or are being deluded by evil demon ....... Or a lack of chocolate?

<points out that we cannot determine if Speckles exists without first opening Shroedinger's box>

<wonders how we all got into box to begin with>

<further wonders how box got into Treehouse, and if it is phantasmic>

<goes a little quantum>

decides the torment in Schrodinger's brain was self-inflicted

Solving the mystery of frogspawn takes priority

why don't the hibernating swallows at the bottom of lakes eat it

Is it in fact swallow vomit?

is it manna in disguise

help me Rhonda
