Thanks Mike, that is indeed a most uplifting story.. it's all about protecting the habitat - just ask our koalas.

As you can see i've sorted out my " reply " issue but embarrassingly i've forgotten how to initiate a post so would appreciate a quick tutorial & while your at it, how do i attach an avatar to les303

Welcome back to the forum Les. It's also good news that you are back. In case you forgot what I look like I've attached a photo.

Victorian national dress now the rest of the country has disowned us.

I can assure you Stanley that the rest of the country has not disowned you.
Certainly disappointed by the actions of a minority of Victorians & the way that Andrews has handled ( or more correctly, failed to handle ) things.
When , not if , but when Victoria gets this second wave under control all of Australia wins.

Spare a thought for Pen, she must be copping a hiding at work in England.

Stay safe everyone.

And just as good - the revival of the lesser spotted Les303. Welcome back, Cultural Attaché Patterson, good to see you.

Since Les mentioned Koalas, it's apposite for me to mention a recent discovery related thereto.

Namely, that there exists an Australian moth whose larvae feed on ... wait for it ... Koala dung.

Say hello to Telanepsia stockeri.

Just when you thought invertebrate zoology had finished serving up weirdness for you to savour ...
Remember: if the world's bees disappear, we become extinct with them ...

The caterpillar spends its whole life in a single dropping,

I guess that my life isn't so bad after all.
