HAPPY EASTER to all posters and lurkers.
OG - Visiting the bank on a Saturday? Really? Are yours open then? Our banks are Mon-Thurs 9.30-4, Friday 9.30-5 pm. Actually they are barely open, few tellers, they prefer we use the "hole in the wall".
We had 2 showers of rain this morn, no more expected the rest of week, just cool 20-22 C temps. Dau#2 & appendages are coming to lunch tomorrow. I have bacon & veg soup. In case that gets rejected by the Little People, there are good old stand-by, sausage rolls. In past week the kids have had choc eggs from school, kindy, play group, fairy dancing, etc, etc and Dau is fed up with post choc hyperactivity. So quiet here with no neighbours.
Happy Easter to all
Happy Earth Day tomorrow (Monday, the 22nd). The theme for this year's Earth Day is "Protect Our Species." Here's a very interesting short ARTICLE about the status of the world's birds. I was surprised at some of these statistics.
Also, the Lyrid Meteor Shower peaks at some time between tonight and Tuesday morning. Skywatching organizations are disputing the time/date. It's usually a good shower to watch, although the bright moon may make the meteors more difficult to see this year. INFO HERE.
I hope everyone is having a nice day and all who are suffering from the pollen feel better.
