    Go to "Artist Point" and look in the direction away from the lower falls. It's down below your sightline, and a bit to the right.

    Thanks Jim. There are different variations of the story out there. In all that I have read or listened to, it seems to me Currey was at least culpable.

    A RadioLab podcast had a segment on the story. (Starts at 00:15:00.)

    Jimmy it takes a while for them to collect enough food to fill the pot before they seal it. Some of the mud wasps here fill each chamber with a row of paralysed spiders. Occasionally a spider will recover. They can't get out so they eat everything else in there and then die. I've found a few like that. Most of the wasps collect mud on the edge of water holes and bring it back to the nest site, but a friend of mine has a species of huge mud wasps that bring back water and use it to create their own mud. We worked together for a year building his mud brick house and studio, and the wasps removed a thick surface layer from the walls over several square feet. JayInOz

    I continue to be amazed that human beings even live in Australia. Everywhere you folks turn it seems like nature is telling you to "get out!"

    Saw my first eastern brown snake for the season yesterday Lee, just up the road from the house. I was actually pleased to see it The most dangerous thing here at the moment is the missus- and of course the Jersey bull. And speaking of Jerseys we started keeping milk for the house yesterday. First day after the cow calved I milked out a couple of gallons of colostrum, froze some for future emergencies here and gave the rest to a friend who raises a lot of orphaned lambs and the occasional calf. The next three days I milked the cow and dumped the milk. Now, even with the calf on her, she's giving more than ten litres a day- ten times as much as we use. The wife offered free milk to anyone who wants it on a local community page, and instantly received warnings about the dangers of raw milk, and of selling it to the public. Despite her stating that it's been heat treated and it's free. Dips###ts. Anyway, she just received a message from a woman a few miles down the road who owns a vineyard, asking if she'd be interested in swapping milk for wine- absolutely Tomorrow I'll have almost three kilos of scalded cream to turn into butter using my century old butter churn, and the missus has already made one batch of soft cheese. Life just got busier! JayInOz

    We now know that three days worth of cream from our Jersey cow equals two and a quarter pounds of butter

    too bad i can't just walk across the field with a bag of sweet corn, jay, we could put that lovely, er, kilogram of butter to good use.

    actually, could have traded for some milk. i am still bottle feeding this bugger with replacer which has me spending more than his actual value, never mind the effort. ah well, the things we do for love. just now:

    Saw this arch cloud driving to Anchorage a couple of days ago. Thought it unusual.

    Did some volunteer work today finishing up a fencing project at a U.S. Forest Service facility. There were five of us oldfarts from our local backcountry horseman group doing the work. The fenced area is about a two acre enclosure for containing pack and riding stock.

    Old hay barn within the enclosure:

    P9170122.jpg

    P9170126.jpg


    There is a cabin on site that was built in 1914. It was originally a guard station used by Forest Service fire watchers, but now, like many of its kind, it is available to the public on a reservation/rental system. We’ve only rented this one once before in the winter and had a great time x-country skiing there with a cozy base camp to come back to.

    This was the only volunteer project that I was able to help out on this year, but small as it was, it feels good to ‘give something back’.
