    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Normally not much of a Star Trek TV series fan (although I do like the reboot movies) but this does have a bit of promise. As Rybags said follows on post career. Think it said something like 2 decades later? (Long lives in the ST universe apparently). Anyways so watched that. Also watching the new seasons of Death in Paradise, Heavy Rescue and Highway Thru Hell. Saving up to Binge Dr Who later on. Also been watching a lot of videos by an Arborist by the name of August Hunicke on Youtube. Just fascinated by their skills and abilities. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSSqc6uBFz_yx-LBrjyRrvw

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Well BA Flight 9 in 1982 lost all 4 for a little while. That was due to volcanic ash though, not systems failure and they did eventually get 3 of them restarted. Now that would have had a pretty big pucker factor.

    Annual Leave. When and where.

    Last time away from home, apart from times in hospital, was in 1991 when I attended the 45th MAAA ( Model Aeronautical Association of Australia Inc) nationals in Waikerie with a couple of friends. So ye been a while. I do have days off just bumming around home etc but that's all.

    NSW / QLD fires

    Can't actually blame them with all the reports being along the lines of "Australia burns", plus all the hazardous smoke stories. To a lot of Americans it must seem that all of Au is in trouble as they just don't get the size of the country.

    how crap is this government ?

    Ok so then lets make it super simple for you. Link to when the Greens held NSW State Government and introduced and passed legislation that stopped the RFS doing fuel reduction burns. Come on where is it? Also https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/the-debate-over-hazard-reduction-burns-after-catastrophic-fires/news-story/c06b3e6f9bc7429128d03bdf18a40486 Jeeyzus the useless pricks can't help themselves can they?

    Yep lightning strike initiation and then no roads and bloody nasty terrain so little to no prospect of getting them put out before they expand. Aircraft can only do so much, you eventually need boots on the ground which means specialist remote area crews lifted in and supplied by chopper. Very few of these around AFAIK and only good for mopping up containing small fires. Given the news reports, dryness, temps and fuel loads that seem to be present in the fire grounds I bet those fires ballooned up extremely fast so even with immediate spotting by the time any sort of control measures are working the fires have just gone totally wild.

    Yet more forestry/RWNJ propaganda and outright lies. Here's a good starter for you https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/nov/12/is-there-really-a-green-conspiracy-to-stop-bushfire-hazard-reduction But of course that won't stop you believing all the bullshit the LNP spin machine pumps out, especially if it slags off the Greens or similar.

    Was supposed to be 30 or 31 here today but due to all day smoke and cloud cover don't think it got above about 24 or 25. Yay! Hate hot weather.

    Only a small vineyard so may be hard to get but it is Hillwood vineyard in Hillwood, on the East Tamar in Tasmania. https://www.winecompanion.com.au/wines?wineryids=be2a620d2574491191b3769745625b44 has a couple of his wines.

    Trump makes good on a threat

    Latest news report I have heard has changed that to a drone attack which makes a hell of a lot more sense than a manned heli.

    That too, grew them for a few years and now the lessee has a paddock in. Brother owns a vineyard and produces a nice drop of both Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

    Just checking some numbers and poor old Tassie has definitely fallen down the Apple production ladder. https://www.agrifutures.com.au/farm-diversity/apples/ The Apple Isle no longer. Got tonnes and tonnes of berries of all sorts going in though, paddocks everywhere seem to be covered with plastic tunnels these days.

    Got friends between Central Mangrove and Kulnura who where getting a bit concerned about the Gospers Mountain/Wollemi/Three Mile fires. RFS did a backburn across the road from them which apparently went well and made it a bit safer. Just looking at http://emergency.vic.gov.au/respond/ and Sheee-it that's goddam nasty.
