DUCK POND



A micro world of emergent clarity with much confusion and furious paddling beneath the surface.

Slow Marchwmmbb

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 16:50:39 +0000

As the BBC noted “It’s been a week of flooding in Peru, a heatwave in India and rain hitting South-East Asia.” And in Australia there has been Cyclone Debbie and its consequences. Of course, there has been some contention by those you claim that Climate Change is not a fact that such storms are not […](image)

Continuing Rainwmmbb

The rain keeps falling. As they say it is weather for ducks,and because the creek was flooding we took a walk up to the dam.We had a storm on Wednesday, but with luck and the information that is now readily to hand, we  got home before  it occurred. “Global Warming is Increasing Rainfall Rates”  was […](image)

Rain, Rain and More Rainwmmbb

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 13:10:35 +0000

Let’s talk about the weather. There have been just three days so far this month without rain.And if this pattern continues, as expected, a record will be broken. The question arises as to the relationship, if any, to overall global climate change. So what has caused the rain: Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Gabrielle Woodhouse said […](image)

Summer has Gone?wmmbb

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 14:52:24 +0000

The world keeps on turning. That part of the system is pretty constant. Natural systems almost invite variation, and that would be equally true for embedded sub-systems whether they are human or canine bodies for instance. Still if there were usual variation in the in the rotation of the Earth or its axis, such a […](image)

“. . . and Watermelon Wine”wmmbb

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 12:19:01 +0000

With the backlog of days, the photos build up. Eventually, I have got around to doing something about them. The criticism I get is that the photos are all the same. To that, I would say the details change. For most of January and February there was no flow of water at the crossing at […](image)

NOT YET THE ENDwmmbb2016-03-18-ernie-at-99-years-old

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 12:57:33 +0000

At some point at the road of an individual’s life unfurls, there is the realization that the planning horizon has closed in. That may be a very selfish moment, or the culmination of long term selfishness. Other people may inherit a world that will sustain their lives and fulfil their humanity, but that beggars belief […](image)

Invasion Day 2017wmmbb

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 13:09:31 +0000

The days race along. Last week it was so-called Australia Day on 26 January. New Year was but a few weeks previously. Still the dogs go out most days. The thing about Invasion Day, as it is constituted, is that it gives rise to reflection. How could people be so dismissively dispossessed and subject to […](image)

Christmas Day 2016wmmbb

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 13:09:33 +0000

As we are reminded every year the celebration of Christmas has pagan associations. It suggests to me that much of the population of Western Europe were nominally Christian and that folk traditions were remembered and continued, especially at the periphery. Arguably,in that sense, not much has changed Nonetheless, Christmas was a long and full day. […](image)

“The Urgency of Now”wmmbb

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 12:47:33 +0000

The election of Donald Trump to become in due course the American President is an extraordinary development. Given the campaign, he made a gracious acceptance of Hillary Ciinton’s phone call acknowledging defeat.As far as I know she has not made a public announcement. One question is how could the Democrats lose given the superiority of […](image)

Dog Blog: Start Againwmmbb

It was an form of eclipse, I suppose. A person sees the doctor and then drives to work. Parks her car and then its knocked down by a car while walking across the road. Motor vehicles in these circumstances are malign. There are broken bones and a head injury. While not at first recognized, it […](image)
