Ask a Red Centre tour guide - you can’t tell Australians anything. During school holidays we would always get a lot of school trips; of the ones I guided 100% of students climbed up Uluru along with most of their teachers. Many had decided even before they departed school grounds that it would be the crowning achievement of the trip.

Veterinary programs improve the health of dogs, so that they are less prone to parasites and have better body condition. Desexed animals live longer and healthier lives. Through surgical desexing, we prevent unwanted puppies; fewer dogs means less competition for food.

What was it about a style of music which migrated from the Delta to the South Side of Chicago and beyond in the forties and fifties, that enabled it to capture the hearts and minds of young men in locations as disparate as Canvey Island and Ngukurr throughout the rest of the century?

Back in Darwin during Christmas holidays 1972 my friend Fred McCue had returned from London holidays with his family early and we hung around in the blessed aircon and smoked pot. On the first morning back from London he walked out of his bedroom and threw some albums on the table. “These are big in London,” he said. They were Ziggy Stardust, Hunky Dory, Man Who Sold the World and Space Oddity

This exquisite art book contains the precious story and transformative work of celebrated artists now living in an aged care facility in Ngaanyatjarra country, a remote and isolated community that is the centre of their abundant world amongst ancient Dreamings.

Depending upon the thickness of the leaf litter layer, and the rate at which the rain falls, anything between the first 3 to 12 mm of a rainfall will be completely absorbed by the leaf litter and hardly a drop will find its way through to the soil beneath it. For this reason we can discount all of the cases or drops of rain and traces in the gauge as fairly irrelevant to what is going on in the soil.

9 October. On this day I noticed new leaf on the Red Bead Tree (Adenanthera pavonina) and on a young Green Plum Tree (Buchanania obovata). I also noticed that the re-leafing of the Canarium Trees had become widespread and general. 10 October. There were complex cloud patterns in the sky in the morning but it became clear later in the day. There was another White Tailed Spider on the verandah at might.

The best laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley. It seems there was a rat--or at least a mouse--in the CLP ranks. They don't call it the troppo season for nothing. Watch this space.
