We have been hurtled into days of maximum summer temperatures.  Hope it is a passing phase. (Wonderful shot of some rocks)
  Free trade agreements with the super powers are afoot.  However does it work out well? Here's to brave new markets.
And we can outdo each other over climate change effects and or policies.

Surf Life Saver on duty.  Surfing beach is just out of view to us.  What with sharks and rips and bathing between the flags to patrol, this life saver is taking it all in his stride.
 Telstra has given us some reasonable telco service lately.

Bamboo is a very interesting, appealing and useful material yet is very alien in our bushland.

A nest had fallen out of a tree. It is not tiny. 
How many hundreds of flights were taken to fetch "pine needles'", bamboo materials and gum leaves.  The woven base is fairly rigid and strong.  All the creation of a bird brain.

Das Auto.
It could be said that VW has been rather creative in the adjustments they made to the engines if it is possible to look beyond the level of dangerous pollutants and fraud.
Makes for a good chance to buy when the prices fall. After all, complaints are heard about the loss of resale value, not about the release of pollution. Lawyers are ready to sue.

The situation leads to strange thoughts. Who can we trust? The world order has changed. This fraud is not the work of a banana republic.
It is beside the point but the cars are probably quite low emitters as it is and the cars still go as well as ever. And, it is not clear if this country has established car pollutant regulations that relate to this situation.

Youthful dance. Creative original work was light on in this school concert despite the relative advantage the school has.
 The new Prime Minister has been indulgent and gathered a youthful group of ministers.  Makes little difference, the young or the old can be very conservative when the mission seems to be one of flexiblity.
Also, age discrimination exists in the workforce and the issue gets oxygen from time to time.
We need good example. What are the ages of the new liberal party cabinet?  Anyone over 40? Maybe.
 Something, nothing - on peeping at the positions vacant in Jakarta Post those for secretary stated the desired age  and, more or less, remarks about needing a pretty face and the salary about $AU1000 a month.
