Judging by this topic the wasps are least things to worry about in Australia!!!

I take it when we watch all these films on Australia the inner `flyscreen/mesh` screen type door you have is to keep all the nasty things out as well as the flies etc. In the UK in summer we just open the patio doors etc to let in the sun/air the house, the worst we get is a wasp or next doors cat in the house to worry us!!

However just to bring home Winter has arrived the following picture is from from just above Meltham today. The better half had to do a long detour today due to the snow, I went up for a bit of curiousity!!

This is at the old `Isle of Skye` Hotel area just above Meltham. It is the old DB test route and was where the origanal VAK1 prototype was run in late 30`s on its test of destruction route when it was first produced. I think it may have tested the constitution rather than the tractor in todays weather??

nb - who needs a 4WD when you can have small white van power - ie skinny tyres and a nice torquey diesel engine over the front wheels :roll:

How about a few photos of the snow and wildlife to entertain us?

Just following up on this topic, the recent rains have brought out a lot of snakes, and many bites have ensued, though no fatalities. ... 840950.htm
