Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

In 1960, when he was a fifteen-year-old schoolboy at Timbertop, Peter
Nicholson began to investigate the secret world of wombats by crawling down
their burrows and making friends with them. In this enthralling book James
Woodford, bestselling author of The Wollemi Pine, tells the
extraordinary story of Nicholson's research and then sets off himself in
pursuit of the elusive wombat

A silly wombat
(childish, rather than for children)

There's a story about href="">mapping the genome
of a wallaby too. Interesting
to compare different types of mammals, what's shared & what's different.

>Marsupials have some good original features & adaptations for the
variable Australian climate. A female kangaroo or wallaby can secrete two
different types of milk simultaneously. And have one embryo "paused" in
suspension internally , with another small young attached to a teat in her
pouch and a third joey at foot still suckling part-time & occasionally
sheltering in her pouch. Am not sure how many others, like wombats, possums
& so forth, have the same capacity. Then there's the very efficient hopping
locomotion for long distances ...

If all that's too much, relax & feel justified by reading href="">Australi
a: The Confusing Country by Orinoco (a.k.a. Jeremy Lee) - or on href="">h2g2 at the BBC's Douglas Adams
section (Also see discussion at href="
