Rain rain beautiful rain. One of the last things i did yesterday was mix a strong brew of car wash in a pressure sprayer abd spray the jeep, this rain should do a fair bit of work for me.

As a follow on too yesterday this was the loading process of moving the second load from halfway to Adelaide, KIKI South Australia roughly 50 k less distance than yesterday. However it was slightly complicated by needing to go to Mt Barker and then Adelaide so firstly we dropped the trailer at KIKI engineering where we hired it from and paid for another days hire while being told a local bloke needed it today as well. Dreading the worst i handed over the money saying we would be back at 3.30 pm and took of to Mt Barker. It was packed with traffic yet we found a park right in front of the lawyers went in signed the papers and were on the way to Adelaide under five minutes. Being an hour early for the accountants appt we slipped down Norwood Parade for lunch at a friend's Italian restaurant and got to the alpt at the alloted time and again parked out front and gone under five minutes. It was on the first part of the freeway to the Heysen tunnel that trouble raised its ugly head and before we'd gone a kilometre the water temp hit the red so we pulled into the emergency lane and basically idled to the top of the hill before coasting down to Crafers and with the motor still running sat in the shade of a tree until the guage dropped to a reasonable level. This was with an empty ute and no trailer so i was seriously doubting we would be able to load the trailer and still get home. Luckily after that the hills were milder and we reached KIKI without further drama however when we arrived the trailer was still out but that was ok as we utilized the time to clean out the radiator fins (something my partner had talked about for months) and by the time that was done the trailer was back. We hooked up and drove 25 k out of town to pick up the jeep and discovered the trailer we had was different to the trailer that had taken the jeep there originally and was 6 inches too narrow, not to worry we'll just use the loader and semi lift it on with 2 wheels inside the trailer and two on the tie down rail. That's what we did and after strapping it down headed home. Weight wise it was definitely heavier than yesterday's van so to avoid stressing the ute we travelled at between 60 & 70 kph all the way home mostly only half on the road so we didn't hold anyone else up, the radiator flush took care of the over heating so it was a slow yet stress free trip. Just like yesterday unloading was just a matter of hooking the jeep to a tree and driving away. Tomorrow we will return the trailer and some other equipment and the job is done.

+Stephen Lord it was a good trip in reality as all goals we're accomplished and it was all planned to occur over 12 months ago. Previously i was weak physically as well as mentally so too be recovered enough to even contemplate it was a great boost and now it's achieved i have a clear picture of what i wish to achieve and a step by step plan to achieve it. Initially if i can spend an hour a day on the ute i will be happy. First is to give it a thorough scrub and then out with the wire brush and spray paint to clean and seal the rusty bits and so on. Small steps hopefully building strength and stamina. A good day.

Straya mate !.
 
See footage of a rare, swift octopus attack on an unsuspecting crab—one so aggressive it surprised even marine biologists.
A YouTube user in Australia captured video of an octopus ambushing a crab—"sheer aggressiveness" that surprised even a senior scientist.

Looking forward to seeing the results.
 
Thanks to +CBD-Crew ResinSeeds and Mr.Nice for the share. Feb 12   Quote, intro : ,,  This year the first human study on the effects of cannabis treatment on brain tumors is starting in Spain. It is very exiting times as 30-40 brain tumor patients ( glioma ) will start getting a high CBD/THC cannabis treatment and be followed up by some of the best doctors and researchers on this field. We at CBD Crew are proud to be a part of this with the rest of the cannabis community that has raised all the money needed for starting this study.  A very special thanks to the +Medical Cannabis Bike Tour  foundation for organizing this great initiative and biking all over Europe to promote awareness!  Beautiful people indeed  " End quote

Innovation and combination.
 
Still thinking solar power can't produce base load electricity?

By storing energy as heat which can then be released as steam to power a turbine, a new Israeli solar power plant will be capable of producing electricity 20 hours a day.

http://buff.ly/17LRnRc
Solar energy is a pretty hot topic right now. It’s cheaper, cleaner and more sustainable than traditional energy sources. But the problem has remained of how to use solar energy without any sun - when it gets dark! An Israeli company thinks it might have found the answer. Brenmiller Energy, an alternative energy company, has announced that it will build a 10-megawatt solar field in the town of Dimona in southern Israel. The facility will be able ...

Despite the lingering effects of the ant bite it really is a beautiful night outside its around 23ºC with no moon so even with the town and highways light pollution there are a gazillion stsrs to gaze at, so many in fact that i continually spin on the spot to take it all in and been rewarded with 5 falling stars. Goodnight plussers.

Thanks +Sue Travers i got to sleep around 3 and woke up this morning without any effect, on top of that i had a successful day with all five tasks achieved and home in time to beat the curfew. My sister goes to bed at 8.30 pm and leaves for work at 4.45 am for work so getting home after that sets two dogs off which sleep in her room. My sister is not the most pleasant individual when tired so i try not to disturb her.

Didn't that top of the day, i know i did way too much considering my health as proven by finally getting home after unloading the trailer to throw up for no apparent reason except for a knackered pain ridden body. The top off was going outside for a smoke having a few puffs while sitting down star gazing (beautiful night for it as the sky is chokers) when all of a sudden the sole of my foot feels like it's on fire. First i wiped my sole with a hand then lifted both feet ono a stool before turning on the torh and looking at the ground. Seriously halp past 12 at night and the ground is swarming with red headed black ants like day time before rain, first time I've seen them out at night. I don't normally react to ant bites however this is the second time I've been bitten by this particular variety and the reaction is close to what happens with my bee allergy. I immediately came in and chewed two antihistamine tablets so the nausea has gone yet my foot is still burning and it's gone red and swollen. Even though i need to be up at 7.30 i can't risk going to sleep for at least another hour know in case i need an epi pen and a hospital visit, all is not lost as ive got the g+ to entertain me while i make sure the reaction doesn't escalate.

+Ellen Gilmore Moore & +Sue Travers​ i woke up fine with no ill effects and had a successful day.

The day didn't quite go as planned however we did pick up the honey extraction van from Murray Bridge. 1 1/2 hours from Bordertown to Murray Bridge including picking up the car trailer from Kiki 2 hours to load van and then four hours to return. I have the feeling we may have exceeded our gross combined weight by a couple of ton as we were flat out down hill at 83 kph hence the extra time returning. At least it only took five minutes to unload as we just backed up to a tree and looped a chain around it connected to the van put the ramps down and drove away.
Tomorrow we will drop the trailer at Kiki and head to Adelaide for a lawyer's appt and sell some honey then back to Kiki pick up the trailer then head 20 k out to pick up my Jeep to take back to Bordertown. Hopefully it will be a lot easier to load and a bit lighter.

And we really need submarines because ? Wouldn't we in Australia be better off investing in the future not the past.

Totally agree, but then I'd only expect submarines from an idiot like the one we have running this country at the moment. He's taken away the vocational future for so many people with disabilities. Investing in war machines that kill without the killer ever having to see the faces of those they kill...really good investment I'd say NOT
