    OK then, last night my daughters final Primary School Christmas fair, today, a load of housework this morn, then some log splitting and kindling cutting put a pile of wood ash on the veg patch. After lunch a armed walk around some land near me, now without a doubt by design and using his nose my dog really can flush woodcock, which is great news we saw 5, for safety reasons (power cable, house, and road) I was only able to get a shot off at one....which I missed! Sadly my dog has a thorn in his paw, however after all his hard work he's shattered so whilst he's asleep his body will sort things out! Cheers. Aled

    Had a walk round the botanical gardens today.
    Bellow is just some of the wildlife we saw.
    The cicadia in the first picture is just under an inch, but the dentist drill noise it makes is incredible.
    My son was with me, the high pitch seemed even louder to him.

    Another walk in the hills today, kids chickend out as they rekon it was too windy.... they may have had a point there. Freezing cold and the wind was whipping through at silly speeds so had to miss out the section of high ridge as the scramble up there may have been abit risky.
    Still the views were good and now my legs are knackerd so ill sleep well tonight.

    Nice pics. Interesting part of the world.

    "Weird beastie" looks like a (?carpenter-type) bee, "Woody" looks like Mr Banded Woodpecker, and leguaan (monitors) taste grreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttt!

    PS - is that plant edible? Beside multiple fruit (and the fact it's obviously not) it looks a bit like pineapple. Botany not my strongest suit mind...

    Just back from a couple of days Christmas break with my family in Moffat. Drove through it dozens of times over the years as its my normal route south, however its the first time Ive stayed over.
    Lovely place, plenty coffee shops, bars, and shops and less than an hour from home.

    Absolutely. While the women went shopping the men went on a wee pub crawl. I'm sure I counted 9 drinking establishments in the high street!

    Been in the kitchen all morning making curry pastes.

    Balinese yellow x 1
    Thai red x 1

    You can buy them ready made but doing it from scratch gives a much more authentic taste experience. The list of ingredients is dizzying and they are a bit of a pain but when it comes to cooking the curry, so worth the effort.

    The Balinese one will be used to marinade some monkfish over night then used as a base for the curry when cooking. Iíl add King prawns in the last couple of minutes to bulk it up a bit with loads of fresh veg.

    The red paste iíl probably do a Penang with beef. Coconut infused Thai sticky rice.

    Tom Yung Goon to start with.

    Getting hungry just thinking about it!!!
    FISH ON!!! FISH OFF!!!!
