    Well here we go! Thanks for the honour. A trip out to the shed to put my training wheels on is in order, me thinks…. So an inaugural speech was requested?…..plagiarised of course.

    On being a rat:
    Part 1

    Native and introduced rats: some quick and dirty facts
    A guide to the differences between, and the history of, native and introduced rats in Victoria.
    Rats can get a bad rap, but it’s not all justified
    When it comes to reputations, it’s fair to say that amongst mammals, rats have a tough time.
    There are few animals regarded with such contempt by humans that their very name is considered an insult.
    Like their mousy relatives, rats are frequently associated with disease, a lack of hygiene, general squalor and, at times, as a harbinger of death.


    The best-known species from the genus Rattus are quite remarkable in a way—as ultimate survivalists, they are worthy of admiration in equal parts to the revulsion they elicit.
    They have adapted so well to living in association with humanity and civilisations that they’ve become commensal animals, thriving in the detritus of human activity.

    Maroon is my favourite colour but thanks to David G purple will be the theme colour. Some flexibility will be required I gather.

    Guidance appreciated.

    RAYNE
    Meaning:Counsel, helpful friend; Song. Rayne is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin, with roots in Scandinavia and Israel, too. This beautiful name conjures images of the nourishing power of rain and the comforting sound of hearing raindrops on a rooftop.
