Hum a few bars and I'll join in shortly....

Feral Beast received a Distinction for his exam.
I have new sheepskin moccasins enveloping my tootsies in lush warmth.
The chooks are laying double yolkers.
The Goddess is in her Heaven and all's right with the world.

Today is the Feast Day of the Lares, small household Gods of Ancient Roman Mythology but tis better not to take any chances and set up an alter for the little beggars asap.

1971 Work began on Melbourne's underground railway system.
Yes, the State Govt believes in resting squarely on the laurels of past acheivements.
Although the glow you're basking in has faded somewhat, Brumby.

Picturesque gardens are just the spot for a ploughing match...!


  1. "The chooks are laying double yolkers."

    Okay. 'Splain to me this chooks and yolkers, Jayne.

  2. LOL
    OK Les - my chickens (chooks) are laying eggs with 2 yolks inside instead of a single one.
    Don't know if that actually counts as 2 eggs in one but it's a nice surprise when we find 'em! lol

  3. Well done on the distinction!
    **thunderous applause**
    And yay for moccies...I love my fluffy feet! Can't do winter without them, not even in the tropics...
    Double yolkers are great..I worked on a poultry farm for a while, and we used to get them to take home, cos the eggs were sent to the hatchery and of course the doubles were no good for that...
    I remember the hooha over the MCC thing..took the bastards till then to pull their heads out of their puckered little butts. Tradition is one thing, being anal is another...

  4. Yay you're back in the land of All Things That Buzz, Mr Hughes!
    And yes, please feel free to borrow a patch of my vegie garden to hide the body ;)

  5. Double yolkers make great sponge cakes. I love my sheepskin slippers too.

  6. Wooohooo on the distinction! Those babies are wonderful :)

    and I'm incredibly jealous - my recalcitrant chooks have not laid a single egg (leave alone a double yolker) since before Easter and they are all re-feathered and their wobbly bits are bright red. Will have to mention chicken soup to them.
