Vast numbers of Hindu sacred spaces are all pervasive. In monumental stone work.
Perhaps it is true to say that the built environment is made up of fifty per cent as habitation and fifty per cent as shrines.

Australia was given the FOSSIL Award in Paris yesterday. A well earned award.
Persons have stopped some coal export from the port of Newcastle by chaining themselves to a conveyor. According to news reports they face arrest and believe it is a small price to pay.

UN Climate Summit, Paris. In Paris, the rhetoric from Turnbull is grand. His policies are weak and mild. Where is the so called innovation? Mr Turnbull: you are not listening.

The emperor's new clothes is a traditional story and we could take a look at it again.
Superficially, nothing big has changed in our society to combat climate change.
Our lifestyle is unaffected. No one can complain about threats to their comfort - there are none.
Debate and noise about the pros and cons of global warming is done for some reason or other.
The tension between personal action and structural change is observed. Every small act of sustainability and conservation is commended but are these a 'drop in the ocean'?
It takes much more than that to reduce our plunder. We must start at the top.

Dry windy weather brings bush fires and they have taken a toll interstate. 39.1 outside.
El Nino - there is no let up.
although weather reports for Jakarta and Java and Port Morsby in Papua New Guinea report thunderstorms. They have been hanging out for the arrival of the monsoons.

The port has been leased lock stock and barrel to Chinese interests a deal that received some attention at the time.
Seems that the port of Darwin has been leased to a Chinese company provoking some concern as well. The locals may receive a bonus if they are luck. It would be crook if a sort of approval from Obama had to be sought.
Photos are at a disadvantage when you are on the move - I wasn't diving!

Westfield will expect people to flock around the latest additional area on the top floor. Really, the photo does no justice to the box like simulacrum.
Christmas shoppers looking for a park will find themselves busy circulating around. The construction crane when ahead during an extremely bad weather event earlier on.

Baby formula is in short supply. Our supplies have gone overseas.
Regular powered milk is not an inferior product. It is full of nutrition, free of additives, economical and is on the supermarket shelves. It must be the very same product as that of specialized baby formula.
Regular powered milk was previously used as infant formula by diluting the milk to make it suitable for the newborn and then gradually increasing the strength of the mix. A few vitamins likely added.
Evaporated milk is no way inferior and was also used in various strengths, it was recommended at times. None of theses are exactly human milk, unmodified, but one survives on them if that is good enough.
Just imagine, fresh cows milk was the most readily available product.
Baby formula has a price tag. It has become a money making commodity that we are dependent on and hooked on.
Countries in the region increase their demand. Is it far reaching for they were not traditionally consumers of milk. Milk products, often sugary, are seen in their on line supermarket pages.
Every baby is subjected to all sorts of additives in the formula and which are taken for granted. Complex data and figures are printed all over the container. Safe, clean and green!!
It is very advantageous to cover all the nutrition and modify the milk in that manner. Probably. Professional formula is an important benefit.
As in the past, the right mix is required and use of too little powder to extend the purchase would be a problem when a more economical product could be a wiser move.
After a short time, feeding progresses to solid food the content of which is under no scrutiny, its do your own thing.
A teacher said that a lot of primary kids are not sturdy kids and don't stand up in class without lounging or leaning on the furniture. Children are found to have bizarre behaviours and obesity. As a start we could lift our game about what we feed our tiny kids.

Any really famous name music albums that I had have all gone somewhere or other over the years.
Some were stolen.
One night, in a country close to here, we awoke when two local intruders accidentally switched the bedroom light on and it was difficult to say who got the biggest fright. The pair ran away fast.
A few albums went missing and a birthday cake was taken away out of the fridge!
Widespread blackouts or is it whiteouts that happened from time to time were not our favourite evenings.

Herringbone gear, of double helical design is seen there.
The logo of the French car, Citroen, is a graphic representation of a herringbone gear.
Andre Citroen had early involvement in the manufacture and use of the gears in industry and in various early Citroen vehicles. Over time, the logo design has become more abstract.
Innovative far-out features like no other were/are usually offered to the motorist by this manufacturer.
Near Maitland, the old steam powered winch of 1910 was used in the construction Chichester Dam which holds the major supply of water hereabouts.
