Thinking of you all over there. What a crazy thing to happen.

This is in response to live journal user fremantlebiz 's post today. http://fremantlebiz.livejournal.com/1200480.html I've commented, but I've never seen him make comments readable, and I thought I'd share here too. When I was a kid I was always questioning why there were no Swans on the Swan River, when it was well known that was what it was named after. Everyone drops the original first word "Black" Swan River. With the cleaning up of the river and replanting of fringing vegetation the swans are returning in greater and greater numbers, and I'm glad to say that future kids may not need to ask the question I did. For a while at least. Mullet River - I don't know. I would suggest Black Bream River as a fish more characteristic of the river. It stays around even when the jellyfish aren't around so much. Would we eventually drop the Black in "Black Bream River" too?

 Ow ow paper wasp sting, ow, ow. Teach me to lean into a bush to get the mail as a wasp flies past, ow, ow.

In good news, the fall into the corner of the doorway wall last night where I fell heavily onto the side of my right wrist going crunch did not actually fracture my wrist, x-rays report. Quick application of ice has minimised the bruising, doc said that it would have been severe if we hadn't got right onto it.

The West  Australian Boardgaming Association has a new website. It looks pretty swish! wabainc.com/

I've been to the one in Innaloo a bit lately. It's pretty good. And it's all gluten free. All of it. *gibbers slightly*

Well that was dodgy. Whitfords Volunteer Sea Rescue just telephoned me. They said that some one using my call sign just tried to log that they were leaving Hillarys with two people on board, but wouldn't say who they were, what vessel they were, or where they were going.

The operator thought it sounded odd, and looked up my details - noted I was a single person kayak and gave me a ring.

1.) What kind of dodgy life uses some one else's call sign?

2.) Why would you bother, as WVSR kindly accepts log ins even if you don't have a membership and will rescue you whether you're a member or not.

and

3.) If you don't tell them where you're going how the heck can they rescue you if you do fail to log out?


WVSR thought I should be aware someone is masquerading as me.

Weirdest identity theft ever.

I'd never heard of the instrument. It makes an appearance albeit in balisetty costume - in a deleted scene in David Lynch's Dune. So, folks, I give you Patrick Stewart playing the Chapman Stick



There's a guy in Adelaide who plays this instrument really well - very worth a listen to. http://andysalvanos.com/

Note: environmentally and socially responsible feminine hygiene products ahead. So if you or anyone you know is interested in stopping landfill, and waste, want to support vulnerable women AND a Western Australian company, take a look here. I wish I'd known about them before this. Damn fine product too!

 Inktober collection so far here https://plus.google.com/collection/glfKkB  Today's theme is 'creepy' - I'll take suggestions but I'm going to the rooftop cinema tonight so earlier would be better so I can do it over dinner or waiting for the movie to start.

I wrote about our last stay on Wadjemup here -
photos.google.com/share/AF1QipONtv9HgeOrDLLw1gGodbrHUgeYRWLiqYa4bXvQqUytcPdma49Jvi03yGAefjZ7Kg  so if you missed it I think it's worth a read and there are some nice photos.

What reminded me (and what you really should read) was
this article that's doing the rounds from the ABC, and bloody about time too. A friend emailed me expressing amazement that he'd never known about this history. (Maybe he would have if he'd bothered to read my article) There's no wonder that the indigenous community feel so angry about the sweeping under the rug of such things.  

We stayed in the Quod - the one time terrible prison - previously when we couldn't get accommodation anywhere else. It was oppressive to go into for me at first.  Seemed to hit me like a tonne of bricks. Guess it was the thought of it, or such happenings soak a certain psychic residue into the walls.  

But all the ghosts, at least the part where we stayed, must have been brought back to the mainland and washed by the silver gulls in the water sweeter than the ocean. Then joined with the other spirits as per Whadjuk belief.

That said, I personally think that the whole place should be a museum and memorial, it is not fitting or respectful that it should be used as a hotel.
