Oh dear, Where did Friday go....


Apologies my friends, we've had a mishap.  Our Bobcat got bogged in the mud. Since the flood we've had a few nights of rain and the ground we normally can work/drive on had taken all the wet it could handle. So my mate drove into a scrubby area to remove an old motor and when he went to turn the bobcat she dug into the ground and the mud just swallowed half of each of the four wheels.

Well we tried for three hours to get it out with a 2 ton car jack and lots of timber, then we had the guy at the back of our place with his tractor to give us a hand. They have trotters and their own training track. But the tractor was only two wheel drive with a small motor and it didn't even budge the bobcat. eventually we got the thing out and finished the work but by then Friday was a gone chicken. \

So here I go with the new WEEKEND Issue... Please Enjoy:

Life, the universe and everything

Taking students out of the classroom to do ‘real’ research and pairing their teachers with those working in the field is getting children enthused about science’s possibilities

It is Tuesday morning and a double-free for a group of Year 12s. But instead of lounging around the common room or catching up in the library, 30 maths, ICT and science pupils have given up their free time to look at satellite images of the River Mersey.

Hands-on agriculture at KI school

14 Jan, 2011 03:00 AM
KANGAROO Island High School students are getting a hands-on agricultural experience through KI Community Education's Parndana campus.Agriculture teacher Trevor Bolwell said there was a working farm adjacent to the school where students were taught a broad range of subjects related to the industry.
"The kids are involved with prime lamb production and run a feed-lot, so they have to go through and work out rations," he said.
They also learn about aquaponics through a barramundi growing-out facility.
Attached to the facility is a recycling system where the waste water is transported to trays with various seedlings including herbs, spinach, beans and lettuce.

From Squidoo: My aquaponic organic garden
Could Aquaponics gardening make our wishes (at least some of them) come true? Don't we all wish to have organic food for ourselves and our family members to eat healthy and without any preservatives? Wouldn't you like to have the opportunity to go to your backyard and pickup your organic fruit and vegetables for your daily use without thinking about how much it would cost you? If the answer is yes then your wish could come true very soon. ...

FARM: shop - East London's radical experiment in food growing and community building

David Hawkins
FARM: shop in Dalston is a revolutionary new take on urban food self-sufficiency: a cafe and community hub with its own rooftop chicken coop, pigs and floating garden
    FARM: shop is a place where people can interact with farming

Just along from the new Dalston Junction train station, opposite East London standard issue billboards and a fried-chicken shack, stands the pleasing facade of a freshly revived shopfront. Yet this isn't the usual tedium of homogenized gentrification
