Aussie Emu Updates

Greetings my friends, I have been quiet on WordPress lately, taking time out to travel and enjoy the world.

I love the fun in travelling, every moment is a new experience, the feel of the wind flowing through the car as we cross some of the great Australian roads.

Open spaces with native trees, red earth soil and the occasional kangaroo and Emu crossing the roads in front of us.

We do a number of trips every few months now, from the cold mountain high countries to the oceans of South Australia.

Our next trip in a few weeks is off to Coober Pedy in South Australia, this town is renowned for the best Opals in the world, being an opal mining town, the houses are primarily built underground due to the heat of the desert, when you drive into the town it seems like something out of an alien movie, nothing but a landscape of TV aerials covering the landscape.

After some opal mining we are heading up to Ayers Rock, the centre of Australia, Ayers rock is normally known as Uluru in Aboriginal language, it is the biggest rock in Australia and hold great spiritual meaning and power for the Aboriginals.

So much for the first part of my blog, now I will change the subject completely, now I want to talk about Garlic. Yes the humble Garlic boys and girls.

I enjoy cooking and garlic plays a major part in all my dishes, it has great medicinal qualities, havent seen a dentist or a vampire in years since using it.

The problem with garlic is getting the skin off it, painstakingly peeling each clove and dicing it up.

Well I dont normally post other peoples culinary hints but in this case I make it an exception.

This video showed me how to skin garlic in virtually 20 seconds, I call it defrocking the garlic.

This method does actually work and is quite amazing, give it a try and it will save you much time if your a garlic lover.

Stay well and keep smiling

Spirit Emu

 photo EmuInTheSky_Web_LoQual_sRGB_zpsfcb27d2a.jpg

Baiame,the creator Spirit Emu,left the

earth after its creation to reside as a

dark shape in the Milky Way.The emu

is inextricably linked with the wide

grasslands of Australia, the landscape

managed by Aboriginals.The fate of

the emu, people and grain are locked in

step because for Aboriginal people the

economy and the spirit are inseparable.

Eauropeans stare at the stars but

Aboriginal people see the spaces in

between where the Spirit Emu resides

In Colors In Colors

In colors, in colors
The fields are dressed in the spring.
In colors, in colors
Are the little birds that come from outside.
In colors, in colors
Is the rainbow that we see shining.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors.
In colors, in colors
Brilliant and delicate is dressed the dawn.
In colors, in colors
Are the thousand gleams the sun treasures.
In colors, in colors
Is dressed the diamond we see shining.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors.
The rooster sings, the rooster sings
With a cock-a-doodle, cock-a-doodle-doo.
The hen, the hen
With a cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck.
The chicks, the chicks
With a cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors.
Joyous, joyous
Let us live in grace since we can.
Let us quench, let us quench
The burning thirst of the King who does not die.
Joyous, joyous
Let us bring to Christ a soul and thousand more.
Spreading the light that illuminates
The divine grace from the great ideal.
Spreading the light that illuminates
The divine grace from the great ideal.
In colors, in colors
Yes, black and white and red and blue and brown.
All the colors, colors
From people laughing, and shaking hands.
All the colors, colors
From people who know freedom.
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors
