1806 - Some convicts decided on a change of scenery so they lifted the brig 'Venus' from Port Dalrymple (in Tassie) and sailed off into the sunset and over the ditch to NZ.

1801 - Lieut William Paterson founded a settlement on the Hunter River. Alas! He forgot the first rule in real estate - location, location, location, and thus it was kicked to the kerb (abandoned to you fancy-pants readers) in 1802.

1806 - Sydney's very first girl's school was opened by Mrs Williams while many parents breathed a sigh of relief and stopped eyeing off the latest line of chastity belts.
An early St Trinian's....?

1807 - The first Russian ship in Australian waters, the trading sloop Neva, 370 tons, popped into Sydney to share a bottle of voddy with the colonials. While anchored in Neutral Bay, Lieutenant Leonid Hagemeister collected Aboriginal weapons, which were sent to St. Petersburg

1828 - James (or Joseph) Johnson (also called Philip Macauley, Phillip Gawley) was hanged at Sydney for highway robbery and assault of George Tills outside Liverpool.

1857 - Beginning the looong tradition of pollies wasting time & money by "looking into it" Member of the Victorian Legislative Assembly, Sir Charles Gavan Duffy, headed a select committee established to inquire into federation of the Australia's colonies.

1869 Explorer Charles Sturt dropped off the perch.

1879 - Proving that scratching about in the dirt isn't just a fun hobby prospectors John Atherton and James Robson tripped over tin deposits on the tablelands inland from Cairns, Queensland.

1884 - The Bendigo Railway Line (Vic) was opened from the glorious Castlemaine Station (Maldon Junction) to equally delicious Maldon Station.

1885 - Not to be outdone by Benders transport improvements, Ballarat saw the launch of the Golden City steamer on Lake Wendouree.

1887 - Queen's College at Uni of Melbourne (named for the Jubilee of Queen Vicky's reign), was founded by the Reverend William Quick (Founders Day) on the piece of land granted by the Victorian Government to the Methodist Church.

1888 - Melbourne Footy Club were trying to spread the love of the game in Banana Bender country where they played a match against QLD at the Exhibition Ground.
Melbourne 6.16 defeated Queensland 3.5 (Attendance: 5,000)

1903 - The Lake Condah Mission Aboriginals formed an unbeatable football team in 1902, the Darlot Creek Wanderers which the Hamilton Spectator reported on this day having won by 52 points against Condah.

A cloudy day at Joyces Creek Natural Newstead

A visit to the Joyces Creek arm of Cairn Curran on Monday was a bit of a desperate attempt to satisfy the bird photography addiction (aggravated by the acquisition of upgraded lens and camera) on a cloudy and unpromising day. While I was delighted to see a party of five male and one female Flame Robins, they were a bit reluctant to pose for the paparazzi, as were the many Black -fronted Dotterels.Red-kneed Dotterel (Erythrogonys cinctus) on the shoreline was more accommodating, but still a little coy.

A group of five Yellow-billed Spoonbills (Platalea flavipes) perched in an old dead River Red Gum were considerably more obliging. A little bit of light breaking through the sombre clouds at the right moment was even better.

And perhaps tiring of the fool with the big lens

Time to move on

As I wended my way back to the car, the Flame Robins were still shy, but a Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) clad in formal attire was happy to pose on a suitably corroded picket.

We Dont Give Up On Those We Love Edgar's Mission Farm SanctuaryEdgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary

Edgars Mission -_-26

We dont give up on those we love. We fight like hell until there is nothing left to give. This is how we should love each other. Kiana Azizian

To which we wish to add, And then we dust ourselves off and fight some more. This is what all gentle, emotional and intelligent beings like Hip Hop Bob deserve. Its been another intense week of rehabilitation for our beloved Hip Hop, who underwent surgery to relieve pressure on her spinal cord and although progress, as can be expected, is still slow, Hip Hop is most certainly taking some steps (metaphorically speaking of course) to recovery.

Two hourly rehab sessions in which Hip Hop is carefully lifted whilst scratch foot exercises are performed on each hind limb are beginning to bring back some movement to her legs. We can now feel her placing pressure on our hands as this exercise is performed and every now and again a twitch of the hoof or a lift of the leg of her own accord has us feeling this may just be one obstacle our beloved girl can overcome.

Edgars Mission -_-25

Combined with ongoing veterinary outpatient consults by the ever kind and knowledgeable Sabine, therapeutic laser therapy and of course, her very own iPad playing an endless stream of Hip Hops favourite shows, we, along with our Five Dollar Friday community are truly leaving no stone unturned for this brave and resilient girl.

If you too would like to be a part of Team Edgar and right now, Team Hip Hop, please consider joining our Five Dollar Friday Community today. For just the price of a soy latte each week you can truly change lives. Find out more at www.fivedollarfriday.com.au.
