Good Morning Val and All,
To add to Val's ring-in's :^D I can say that only a
few minutes back I was talking to my mate of these
parts to get his full morning recital.
He started with A MAC truck going downhill through the
Then a washing machine on spin start-up cycle (even
had to water discharge sound) ..... followed by a
steaming kettle with whistler coming to the boil.
Plus a wonderful rendition of what could only be
defined as a chorus of the "Carlton theme song" ??????
pretty good eh? for an adult white-backed magpie
...... perhaps he felt sorry for those lowly blues eh?
Is nothing sacred I ask ..... or was he planning my
day for me :-] A bit windy down here today eh?
If I was wishing to get info on jet propelled boat
speeds in an Australian bay and the legal limit on
noise produced where would be the first place I should
search? shirley :-] we have some legislation on this
very important fact of protecting plover and many
other endangered bird species place of residence?
Perhaps I should push for more of my dream to come
