To Think About . . .
Do you tell yourself “I’m no good at languages”? If you do, you are fooling yourself. The real reason you failed is not because you are no good at languages, but because you are no good at being consistent. Mark Forster

View from the verandah

This is the view from the verandah (when it’s not raining) as I work on The Final Version in the depths of the Australian outback.

Yeah, stunning. But whenever I think of the Australian outback, I worry about critters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_funnel-web_spider

The main worry here at the moment is floods.

Thanks for sharing that, Mark. I hope you're enjoying your visit to Queensland.

Hope you're enjoying our beautiful Queensland weather, Mark. Don't worry, the water will stop rising ... eventually. It looks at this stage like this year's floods won't be as bad as the ones we had last year, so fear not -- you will be able to escape!

@avrum: Don't worry too much about spiders, snakes, etc, should you ever visit us down under. The main things to be concerned about in Australia are heart disease and automobile accidents, just like anywhere else in the developed world :-)

Looks really beautiful - I bet you will find it hard to leave and come home - not just because of the view either - it must be wonderful to spend time with family that you don't get to see very often.

Communications installations on the top of every hill
Parking charges
Light pollution

Things I miss in the Queensland outback:

Roads with bends
English pubs
Public footpaths
Being able to get somewhere else in less than 40 minutes

Things I love in the Queensland outback:

Space
Friendliness
Being able to see the stars - all of them!
