    Don’t forget to water the dogs

    Our last kelpie "Nita" loved water. If you threw in a stone she'd follow it underwater. She was useful in the last drought as a depth gauge. If the report was "A full Nita or more" that was passable. At "Half a Nita of water" it was time to make other arrangements.

    More water, different recipient You might have heard that koalas don't drink water? I have a series of slides of one doing similar in the spray of a garden hose in our yard. I'll see if I can add a picture - later as I'll have to find it.

    Never-ending Fun

    Runner Thank your lucky stars you're not in Queensland, Australia. If the ecofadists latest ambit claim gets up you'd have to re-woody-vegetation 30 % of that or buy offsets (doesn't matter that it never had woody vegetation - they know gaia wants it woody)

    Liver & Onions

    Atila The truthful answer is "Not sure" as we don't do beef livers. A friend gave me some a few years ago and I don't remember any real difference. I have a vet friend who won't eat anything with kidney in it. Reckons he "can taste the p^^^ in it"

    Liver & Onions

    Like sliced tomatoes - nowdays they use a microtome for slicing ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microtome ) Mine is mostly ranch kill sheep livers so slice your own. The recipe I use came via BBC Hairy Bikers recipes. Their "quality control" is "Mums Know Best".

    " So IF their estimates are correct, and IF we got all the savings today, and IF CO2 actually were the secret temperature control knob for the planet … if all that were true, the total of all the projects funded by the GCF would cause a temperature reduction of … wait for it … 0.0015°C. How small a temperature change is this? Well, if you walk up a flight of stairs, which is about ten feet (three metres) vertically, there is a temperature difference due to the change in altitude. How big a difference? Well, temperatures drop about one degree C for every hundred metres you go up in altitude. So in climbing a flight of stairs, you’d experience a temperature drop of about 0.03°C. Three-hundredths of one degree. Far too small to detect without special instruments. But that’s still twenty times the possible temperature reduction from the $6.9 billion dollars wasted on these GCF mitigation projects, a reduction which was only 0.0015°C. So we’ve spent $6.9 billion dollars for a POSSIBLE decrease of about the temperature difference from the floor to half-way up to your knee … be still, my beating heart …" "The Green Spent By The Green Climate Fund" https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/07/04/the-green-spent-by-the-green-climate-fund/ From SDA -" equivalent to moving about half a block north" http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/index.php/2018/07/05/plasticbarbie/#comment-1127967

    ” “climate science” has turned into a parody of itself….the only science that depends on the data hiding some where Hiding in the deep ocean….ocean floor sinking…..land sinking under Greenland….land sinking under Antarctica…..ice sheets melting on the bottom….on and on …always somewhere that no one can get to it…and always something that has to be made up” http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/index.php/2018/06/16/y2kyoto-an-open-letter-to-the-geological-society/#comment-1123004 And not to forget Trenberth's travesty " "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't."

    From a comment at Jo Nova re the "adjusting" of past temperatures " My favorite was the Icelander who said “I hope NASA doesn’t adjust the 1904 temperatures (Iceland) any lower or all my grandparents will freeze to death before my parents are born.” "
