Photo
Quibray Bay

What seemed like a good idea, or in this case what seemed like a good spot to take a picture ended up as a not so much of a good idea or spot :)

Each little tree beckoned me further into the swamp that is Quibray bay, each little tree held such promise from afar but alas as I got close it did not seem so good. I did settle on this little tree, only because each step i took back resulted in me being knee deep in oyster shell filled mud. I suppose looking on the bright side it did mean, being knee deep in the mud, I had only a short way to bend down to be able to get this picture :)
Also the mozzies could not get my legs 'cause they were covered in mud :) gerry ftw.

I do like this little part of Botany bay, it takes a little planning to be able to get out to spots like this at the right time of the day, the only access (that I know of) is via the waterline, hence if its high tide your not getting in there unless you swim or kayak. Its a shame that it appears to be the back water area for all the plastic in Botany Bay to wash but there is evidence of people actively trying to combat the massess of waste that pile up there each month - i bet they are local volunteers :)

For me the book 'Fire & Fury' is more akin to a wet pile of ashes then any great relevation of the inner workings of the Trump White House.
Michael Wolff has been shown to be playing fast and loose with the facts leading to a situation where we can't tell hyperbole gossip and rumor mongering from what is really happening in the administration.
Time magazine in this article does try to dig in order to find the ground truth of what was really being said and done. Still too much remains uncertain for me to judge this book as anything but a waste of my time.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wolff is known for his bare-knuckled prose, his flexibility with facts, his instinct to capture larger truths, to see the forest without being able to name every tree. And so this President, this White House, was his perfect subject.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ah. . .NO

The outrage shock and behind the hand giggling that has accompanied this book's release is a distraction from the innumerable concrete misdeeds that this administration is committing on a daily basis.


At this time we need more clarity, more honesty to shift through Trump's web of lies and deceit.
Accuracy matters
Facts matter
Honesty matters
I will stand by the truth it will be my guide no matter what this lying administration does.


This should not be forgotten.

January 14, 1968
Green Bay Packers win again.
The Green Bay Packers defeated the Oakland Raiders, 33-14 in Super Bowl II before 75,546 fans at the Orange Bowl in Miami.
Coming into this game, like during the first Super Bowl, many sports writers and fans believed that any team in the NFL was vastly superior to any club in the AFL.
The Packers, the defending champions, posted a 9–4–1 record during the 1967 NFL season before defeating the Dallas Cowboys, 21–17, in the 1967 NFL Championship Game (also popularly known as the Ice Bowl).
The Raiders finished the 1967 AFL season at 13–1, and defeated the Houston Oilers, 40–7, in the 1967 AFL Championship Game.
Green Bay quarterback Bart Starr was named the MVP for the second time for his 13 of 24 passes for 202 yards and one touchdown.
Vince Lombardi retired as the Packers head coach after the event, which was still referred to officially as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game.

Sky to Turn BLOOD RED Across World - Rare ‘Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse’ Coming Up

The Sky will turn a deep blood red across the planet as a rare celestial event unfolds. A Rare ‘Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse’ Occurring Jan 31.

Three Separate Celestial Events, a Supermoon, a Blue Moon and a Full Lunar Eclipse will Occur Simultaneously at the End of January.

We are due to witness one of the moon’s most rare and beautiful sights at the end of this month. For the first time in 150 years, a stunning display of celestial bodies will coincide to reveal what is being called a “Super Blue Blood Moon.”

The super blue blood moon is the combination of three lunar phenomena, a supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon.

“Supermoons” happen when a full Moon is closest to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than normal…the fist one appeared on the night of January 1 and the next supermoon in 2018 will be on the night of January 31.

A “Blue Moon” is what you call the second full moon in one month.

A “Blood Moon” is the name given for a view of the Moon during a total lunar eclipse.

The lunar eclipse will take place on January 31, and the next one won’t be until 2028.
The EarthSky website provides detailed information on where and when you need to be in order to witness the event. http://earthsky.org/?p=270280

Read more here: http://yournewswire.com/the-super-blue-blood-moon/

The seldom-seen event will be visible in western North America, Asia, Australia, and elsewhere across the Eastern Hemisphere.
New Zealand, much of Australia and central and eastern Asia will all get a very good view, with some of the rest of Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East getting to see some of it.

So, if you’re in one of those lucky locations and want to see an event that’s literally once in a blue moon—here’s your chance.
