I recently moved back to Victoria Australia and forgot what a beautiful place Mildura is to live in, Mildura is known as an oasis city being situated up in the dry northwest area of Victoria , we are situated on the banks of the mighty Murray river that runs through three states , South Australia , New South Wales and Victoria , we are 2 minutes away from NSW , 1 hour from SA , so on any day we can cross two other states. Being here again reminded me that we are at the crossroads of National and International air travel , Ana took a number of pics of the sky overhead where you can see the vapour trails of 3 or 4 jets that have created a noughts and crosses pattern high up in the sky . I am not sure what effects the vapour trails have on the environment here or even overseas for that matter.

Finally 2 pics depicting stamp marks on eggs found in our local supermarket , I thought them original and must have been done by a retailer with a sense of humour.

    Oh Ian, I don’t think I could eat an egg labled ‘Hen Farts’ – how ridiculous, I know!! I find it so off-putting!!

    Love your lively take on life. Wonderful 🙂

      You telling me that you are an Aussie and never heard of Hens Farts, bloody hell girl.
      Do you know what lambs fry and bacon is ? or tripe and onions are ?, hey, how about pickled pigs trotters ?
      How about bread with dripping sprinkled with pepper and salt, and a kiss on the cheek on a damn sunday afternoon from aunty Toosie who is covered in rouge and has big red lips and stinks of lavender ? hehehe
      Cheers girl
      Emu aka Ian

      It is a beautiful place Sheila , we are happy here so far but think it will be time to move again next year
      a holiday back to Chile and then , well wherever the winds blow , I get bored real easy Sheila
      I think its because of the moving with the army over 20 years.
      Wishing you much love girl and remember itchy feet means out with the old and in with the new

    What a great place to live Ian, and now that you’re
    back does this mean a new type of omelette in the
    guise of Hen Farts, that farmer was surely having a
    lot of fun that day 🙂 lol

      Hi Cat , always appreciate you dropping by , glad you enjoyed that post

      Ana is learning fast as she has only been here for 18 months
      and realizes the bloody Australian sense of humour and the turkey she married

      Hi Jen , yeah we do seem to have funny place names here but to us they are normal , most of our towns are named after Aboriginal words
      like Woolloomooloolo and Gunedah and Waracknabeal , I thought the egg name was quite funny
      Have a beaut weekend girl

    Does that mean Emu is back where his heart lies.

      The Emu never knows where his heart lies as he can never seem to settle down for long
      before he gets itchy feet again and heads off for further adventures

    Hi Ian! 🙂

    Contrails reduce the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth and a study showed a discernable difference when all flights were grounded after 9/11.

    Love the eggs!!! LoL!!!

    God Bless!


    • The Emu

      September 30, 2011 at 10:11 pm

      Thought that they must have some adverse effects on the environment
      That is interesting to know Ian that the difference was noticeable after 9/11 groundings
