 Labour Day Long Weekend.  Here's to all the workers around the world!
Guest worker/slaves, child workers, the working poor - to those in power: reform all injustices!

Pictured is a park in Cooma which commemorates the multi-national workforce that build Snowy Hyro Electricity Scheme long ago. Whole little suburbs built for the workforce, the administration and ancillaries can be identified around the town. Who knows what conditions were like for those workers but one hears some favourable accounts from those migrants. A 'can do' attitude in a new country on a pioneering scheme was a great asset.

 Seems everyone is going away but I'm going to feed some chooks in their absence. Sadly, a fox killed three of the hens recently in mid suburbia and sometimes others nearby have had the same fate. It's a jungle out there
