Random Challenge: thread two


Recommended Posts

 

Winter its going to be coldish and not so muggy.

 

Everyone will be walking round in Jeans & Jumpers & muttering about how cold it is.  If you are from anywhere that is even slightly cold you will be raising your eyebrows and wondering how 20oC (68F) is Jumper weather.

 

I tend to find that shorts weather in the spring (for me) starts about 20 degrees cooler than that -- on a calm day in the low 30s F I'll be in shorts. Subject to wind, I can get another 5 degrees or so when running (down to about 20F, but hat and gloves in the 40s).

 

Of course, I also never shifted from my windbreaker to a heavier coat this winter. There were only a couple days I considered it, but I wrapped my daughter in my winter coat instead (gloves for three-year-olds just aren't made for temps of 10-20 degrees below zero (before windchill)).

On G+ painters group one of the guys was asking where to buy Reaper Triad paint sets from a European company online. Anyone know so I can relay the information? I invited him over here, but not sure if he'll create an account to ask the question.

Now now... these were little and cute.

 

Obviously our spiders & snakes didn't make the cut.  Or our various other land mammals.  Or our other sea life....

 

No wonder Australia used to be a penal colony with all those dangerous critters.  :upside:

Some day we'll get to visit Australia, I'd also like to see New Zealand.

One of my cousins apparently goes back packing in New Zealand. It's a place I'd really like to go someday as well. (Australia too.)

Sometimes things amaze me.

 

I was looking up something yesterday (can't even remember what it was) and came across a list of the 6 most dangerous creatures that can fit in your boot....

 

3 of the list were from Australia.... Cone shell fish, box jelly fish and blue ring octopus....  they all look so very cute too!

Not sure I'd call the Jellyfish cute. "Neat" maybe.
