          I’d have it sans bacon. I would never have thought to have guacamole and blue cheese, I don’t often have that much imagination.

          Lemon pepper goes really well with a lot of things.

    Overheard on the way home….

    Exquisite warbling from a tui, harsh kweekeekeeek from two blackbirds hurling abuse at each other.What a contrast.

    I saw a lovely blue parrot.

      A blue parrot ? Cool. How big was it? I wish you had a camera to catch this sort of thing.

      It’s been a wet day mostly, clearing up now. I was treated to an especially gorgeous vocal Dawn Chorus – at 6.30 am, in the dark – this morning. It was so loud & sonorous I took a few seconds of video just to record & analyse what birds are there, sometime. Most likely a song thrush was doing most of it..

      And at 8.30 am I also had a happy young tui perching a couple of metres away doing some whistles & clicks for about 5 minutes. His back plumage is very blue.

        Rosella sized; bigger than a tui, smaller than a seagull (shorter wings) It’s a lovely shade of blue. .

        Most of the local ones are green and red, it seems,. I love the blue ones, but never tire of seeing parrots flying around.

        The blackbirds’ voices were surprisingly unmelodious as well as crabby,

        The parrots move so fast that nobody could video them. This one fairly whizzed along. My phone does videos, but very bad ones.

    Always loved their self-effacing lead guitarist

  4. I’ve just been browsing Youtube and came to this.

    Change always comes, but we need more changes for the better.
