Turns out, the design is flawed. You can’t cut biscuit dough with that wombat cutter, but you can stamp it!
So wombat stamped choc biscuits it is.
I recently bought a camera trap/trail camera/wildlife camera off eBay. This morning I positioned it to watch the bird feeder to see what's been popping in to eat the sultanas.
It turns out, it wasn't a King Parrot or a Rosella as I thought it might have been, but a Pied Currawong!
Our area made the national current affairs, although not for great reasons.
A story on the woeful state of the National Broadband Network in the Samford Valley region.
I came across another duck family this afternoon leaving work. This one consisted of 6 fairly new ducklings and two fairly laid back parents (usually Papa duck will hiss and run at anyone close, but this one didn't mind me being about 3.5-4m away).
A heads-up that Sunsetting of Python 2 is definitely(?) going to happen on Jan 1, 2020.
"That means that we will not improve it anymore after that day, even if someone finds a security problem in it. You should upgrade to Python 3 as soon as you can."
Hmmm, looks like the fire is getting bigger:
Rural Fire Service Advice:
STAY INFORMED: Cedar Creek/Samford bushfire as at 3pm Sat 7 Sept
Bushfire warning level: ADVICE
Currently as at 3.30pm Sat 7 Sept, a bushfire is burning in the vicinity of Belinda Pl and Mayfield Rd, NW of Samford.
Properties are not under direct threat at this time.
Response Date: 7/9/2019 1:37 p.m.
Vehicles on Scene: 11
Vehicles on Route: 0
Last Update: 7/9/2019 3:39 p.m.
Vegetation fire down the road (the [I] on the map). We're not in direct line of it (we're the blue dot), but the only road in and out of the valley is, if it spreads down the mountain (the wind is blowing towards the north-ish).
Fire fighters are on the scene, so hopefully they'll get it under control quickly.
If someone has lit this (and the other fires around the state), may they be caught and awful things done to them.
In other news, probably no #blacksmith posts this weekend as we're under a Total Fire Ban all weekend.
This ban doesn't actually prevent me from lighting the forge, as it's enclosed, and that's allowed, but why risk it ? After all I live in the forest, and fire is always at the forefront of my mind as we head towards summer.
