And then (again) there were two.
Ah. It never occurred there might be more than one place of the same name though I should have clicked when I saw they were in different States. D'oh. Your particular version sounds delightful but as you mentioned, Melbourne is rather pleasant in its own way. And thank you for the felicitations; I claim Melbourne's popularity to be all of my own doing (of course). No idea where these people get the data to make these assertions, but there we go; good for the tourism industry, I expect.

I'm hoping we will have more than a puppet dump join in one of these days. Several new UGP members seem to arrive within a very short span of each other and usually right after we have a top 10 -25 showing in one of the census polls. Trying to decide if they arrive to be part of the high rating or to intentionally skew the standings downward. Either way, no one stays for very long.
No staying power, these young ones (mutter mutter).
I confess that age creeps into some of my more reptilian thoughts. However, you did warn me some time ago to be aware of the 3 major groupings in Nation States and that has proven to be sage advice. I now fall solidly into the middle grouping of been here for several years but certainly not in the 10+ years of activity that you reside in.
Our turn at out of control wildfires. The smoke builds up in the mountain valleys to the point of not being able to see a 13,000' peak out the front door. Thought I had a head cold at first and then realized it was the 10 days of inhaling smoke 24 hours a day. Aggh!
Glass of cold water and an inhalation of Albuterol.
Just as we thought the weather might turn itself towards Spring, south-east Australia is in the grip of a mini ice-age; snow, sleet, hard frost. Lovely stuff. But even with all this 2015 has still been the hottest year on record. I wonder, with some trepidation, what next year is going to be like.

We have much to be concerned about as the Earth spasms from our lack of action. The US space agency, NASA, just released a report on global water levels over the next 200 years that indicates we are past a certain tipping point in regards to our ability to do anything to stymie the rapid sea level rise. Basically, we are 100 years ahead of predictions on sea level rising and its not going to slow down unless the developed countries of the world make a truly significant reduction in the emissions from industry and confront fossil fuel dependency.
Our main local paper had the headline yesterday of 'Hottest July on Record' just to prove the point. In some ways we Coloradoans are ahead of the curve in the fact that we lead the nation in recycling but have 0 laws on the books requiring people to do so.
Meanwhile, enjoy the snow and the mulled wine. By the way, do you use plum wine or traditional grape for your mulling. Loved walking around the local German Christmas markets drinking the hot spiced wine with potato pancakes.
I am endlessly mortified by the deliberate blindness of the current Australian political administration when it comes to climate change. Many people are now doing what they can to assist - going solar, recycling just about everything, aiming for a carbon neutrality if possible; but the Federal government just want to keep the coal-burners happy. Talk about vested interests.
Spiced claret is the go down here (Cab. Sav/Cab. Merlot/Shiraz with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves). Best by the fire with cheese on toast. Real comfort stuff.
Spring is sprung and the weather is typically Melbourne; four seasons in the one day. Starting off with a chilly few degrees C, the temperature meanders sluggishly up to the low teens until early afternoon when it leaps (leaps) into the steamy mid-20s followed by a slow decline back into an autumnal 13 or 14C. It's now 10 pm and a cooling 11C. Tomorrow is going to reach 27C, so they say, but tonight is crawling down to a miserly 5C. Just lovely.
