Poor animals! They will be so thirsty and many will be homeless. How are people's homes? How many have been affected? No injuries or deaths I hope.

You are very welcomed...What state are you in..I am in Illinois...off the mississippi river..good luck with the dogs..i also wish you very much of good lucks with the cats...I know my cats hated car rides...stay safe..


I am in a concerned state. I am in New South Wales in Australia....off the Nymboida River.
.

Funny thing, dogs can be obedient with training. Cats...well? They're pigs when it comes to breakfast and dinner time. The opening of a can of cat food has them running to their bowls. So I'll open a can of their favorite brand of pilchards and tip it into the box. What could go wrong? Haha.

Cheers for your thoughts OT.

There's reports of homes and properties lost up north (Queensland) And some brave firefighters were overrun suffering injuries in their truck. (One serious).

In our neck of the woods where the largest fire is burning. Evacuation planning has seen no reports of injuries or deaths. Because of the intensity and nature of the fire and the burning terrain I suspect it's very hard to gauge the extent of any losses. Wind fanning embers and smoke would make that difficult. Many fire brigades, aircraft and volunteers are at the front. So I guess it's just watch and wait from my perspective. I do have knowledge in bush fire hazard reduction and the preservation of native habitats. I also have extensive fire fighting training and survival on land and at sea so a product of that experience/education aids me in our preparation.

Native animal habitats were preserved with fire in the past. It was an aid in survival of the original occupants of this land. Sadly this knowledge is being lost or ignored and subsequently bush fire dangers increase. Couple this with that practice of 'burning the land' (hazard reduction) over thousands of years a lot of Australian native flora is dependent on a fire for regeneration from trees to shrubs, grasses and cycads. But the fire has to be seasonal on a rotation basis as the land owners years ago traveled seasonally. Burn upon arrival. Hunt. New shoots appear, animals appear and life was good. When finished in that spot, burn again and move to next location. Repeat. This practice had disappeared in a short space of time. The bush hasn't adjusted and the introduction of outside species of plant life has built up to an impenetrable mass.

The preservation of parks, national parks etc is a good thing but the land management as in the nearby national park here has lead to wildfires. The eucalypti build up coupled with introduced species of weeds like Lantana and Privet prepares a hot bed for ignition. A massive fire will destroy a huge percentage of the natural habitat and wildlife. An annual (or at least biannual) burn reducing the fuel and enabling regeneration would see the preservation of the Australian natural habitat and not a patchy destruction across the states as we see yearly.

My tricky thoughts. Doesn't get much if any support. Hence I'll attempt to save my habitat the old ways.

Kind regards,

bally

Humor keeps the spirits up. My dad was similar all his life after surviving WW 11. "Just stand up with a grin on yer face and a wink to the man by your shoulder." Must be inherent as I see humor in a lot of situations which gives me the occasional retort of, "What are you grinning for? This is serious." You might read the serious side of me in my last post but bugger what those people think, I'll roll a smoke then get on with the job. And if they don't like smoking they should get away from the fire aye!

Nothing like a bit of a chuckle when things go south.

My regards and thanks for your reply,

bally

You are quite knowledgeable about your land and the plants and animals. Good on you mate! I don't like that you are inhaling so much smoke though.

Yeah, well
. I'm smoking tobacco right now so I'm aggravating the circumstances so to speak. I'm lucky we have no asthmatics here. The smoke is ahead of the wind so if it follows yesterdays pattern it will darken in about 2 hours. Presently bright with a smoke haze all around. I just learnt to put on sun glasses when I went outside to check the progress and ahem...have a leak. When I looked up everything appeared grayer until my eyes adjusted.

Cheers for your kind remarks,

bally

YOU! I had to dig up this post from 30 pages back, to tell you....


Thanks, actually. You introduced me to a new music addiction and I play Heilung nearly every day now (doing the dishes has never felt more victorious)

Usually, I just play the whole show while I clean for an hour:



Buuuut sometimes at night, I indulge in a few select songs from their concert. In Maidjan is one of my favorites. Singing an alphabet has never been more heart pumping




I like to unwind to this, Hamrer Hippyer. It's a healing incantation, though it sounds aggressive. It's actually pretty soothing after a couple of listens.



I also love Hakkerskaldyr, I may or may not have thumped a foot along with the beat at the sink scrubbing plates and said "I will obliterate you, you remnant dried egg breakfast!" XD

Skip to around 34 seconds in to bypass the noise of the crowd.




In the Krigsgaldr video you initially posted, did you notice her head turn to the camera, at around 7:20 in? That's enough to wipe the smirk off the baddest ass's face, lol.

Haha... welcome to your new addiction, glad to have introduced it

Something just... so ... human/primal about the sounds I think!!


The Indian songs from the other side of the world are great too as are the Eastern sounds from the times.

My lineage comes from vikings (been looking into my roots with the help of my Aunt). Pretty much as Scottish as can be aside from a bit of Welsh thanks to a madman viking landing in a port in England hundreds of years back and erm... having his way with it!
If you like this sort of sound, you might like this too! (I see it as an evolution of the old music types given the movements of the people in history with many Vikings ending up in Scotland). Without going to deep into the politics of it all and just sticking with the music sounds of course. All has this kinda earthy drum beat sound to it all, more in touch with nature or something






Anyways, bit of a jump but thought it worth sharing, I like hearing the progression etc given that ive been told I will be completely deaf at somepoint soon.

Cheers


PS: yes I noticed - the Mrs looks at me like that when I eat pork scratchings
