Hi fellow Aussies!
Anyone interested in a travelling journal - around OZ. Now with the Spring coming I think we will all feel a bit more creative than through the last cold months. What do you think? Jenny

ENTER THE DRAGON. I know it is a long way off but 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. As I am a dragon (born 1952 - yes that means I turn 60 next year!) I am hoping to put together a collection of Dragon cards etc. Not sure what I will do with them yet but I will figure out something.

As I am a freelance writer I would like to do some articles (I already commisioned) or perhaps put up an online exhibition. Any suggestions welcomed.

In the meantime if you are interested put your thinking and creating caps on.

Crutching is a blowfly prevention, although it is painful it is infinitely preferable to sheep being struck by blow flies with maggots eating the skin and flesh of the sheep which is I should imagine excruiatingly painful and long lasting. The stench of the flesh as the maggots infect it in a very short time is truly breathtaking.  The short period of pain with the antiseptic the cut lasts for several hours - no doubt.  The people who complain about this have never had to clean up the struck bottom of a sheep. Often this happens and one only sees the wool not the maggots beneath, whilst the mulsed area is clear. Crutching removes the the wool from around the sheeps bottom, mulesing removes part of the area so that skin will not grow wool again. If you have sheep, you want them healthy, not in pain, not diseased, not flyblown. Once a sheep is struck in this area the maggots keeps spreading across the body of the sheep, providing the opportunity for a secondary blowfly strike, these maggots give the sheep blood poisoning and the sheep dies.

Hi Jennifer & Helen - received your pieces on the same day - almost like Christmas. Loved them both - they'll go up on my blog in the next day or two. Can't get over receiving 2 in one day - do I need to get out more????

Indeed, Lorinna. So there's hope for me to be a famous artist yet ; )

Thank you Jenny for the postcard, witty, as usual and when the scanner works would you like me to upload it.
