I've never seen a kookaburra but remember singing about them in Camp Fire Girls in California. A nice happy rousing song. That's a lovely photo.

Thank you Paulette. I imagine the song might have been Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree.

 

Yes, it was. We used to sing it as a round..... I'm not much of a singer and I usually got lost. It was fun though..appropriate to the bird.

Stills don't do this young hula dancer justice as she was moving very fast with grace. So nice to hear live Hawaiian music with amazing hula. Music with dance when done well is SO much more then either alone.
 
Mental health is a THING! Best to find joy where you can.

Operational Support Unit officers doing a sweep search at a murder scene in Birmingham earlier this month. (A bit grim, but that's news for you!)

Weather miserable and can't travel under lockdown, so I have spent some time reworking old images. The replica Stephenson's Rocket at Beamish museum.

I didn't know the railways had been re-nationalised.

On a note of reality, in fact they effectively have been. Because of the fares collapse the DoT now takes the risk and pays a management fee to the operators.

We'll see what happens...........

We got to this remote Outback pub during a severe storm and camped there. I thought we would never get out of the muddy field, even in 4x4. Lightning fell very close with a big BANG. There was sheet lightning and thunder all night.

Next day, the roads nearby were flooded with red mud but open.

I did NOT crank up the saturation. That was the colour of the water in the sun.

...and the operators still make a profit, and pay their shareholders a dividend 😖

The licence fee for that might have been worth having. If it wasn't half-inched.
