the internet archives.
I spend a good deal of my time down here in the INTERNET ARCHIVES.
Its a fascinating place.
My particular interest is in Colonial Australia ( well its one of my particular interests) and books have been scanned and saved to the Archive including ones with artwork like this of the BLUE WREN. Many of the books are from USA Libraries and contain information which could well have been lost with that simple DISCARD stamp that libraries seem over keen to use.
Further North, when I loved on the Tweed and then in Brisbane, we encountered the Brush Turkey illustrated here. The Blue Wren is in my gardens here at Raleigh.
Today, I took a visit to the sites under the heading of NEW SOUTH WALES.
Here’s a reading for me as a Libra which is indicatory of the subtleties which bring him into my life each morning.
What do you know? Enough. Who do you know? The right person. How do you know that this is so? Well, ask yourself how you feel deep down. Down beneath the surface layer of self-suspicion that often furrows your brow, down past the churning, complex rhythms and patterns of thought that leave you never sure what your ultimate opinion about any matter truly is. Deeper down. Further down. Down to your heart, to your bones, to the very private, profound part of you. You feel certainty there. Trust that. There’s a Solar eclipse on 26th January.

Music, Hire and Promotion (1983) by Clay Djubal, Have Gravity Will Threaten (HGWT) is an independent specialist publisher of music, plays, poetry and images from writers, musicians, composers, bands and photographers who emerged out of the New England region of New South Wales during the ‘pub rock’ era of the 1970s and 1980s.

Well – one is new.
The other is new to WORDPRESS but I set it up years back because it is about the very essence of my life. OF DRUNKS AND DRUG ADDICTS WAS HERE.
And now I bring it over to WordPress at this address: DRUNKS AND DRUG ADDICTS ARE IMPRESSED.
This is my discovery of the month. Amongst the NSW STATE LIBRARY newspapers. Paradise unlimited for me. And for Kati B who says it is much like her job at MEDIA MONITORS where she worked before returning to the country and taking up employment at the IGA Deli and the BOILING BILLY now known as the BLACK BEAR.

This one is a wee story about a lost watch in Bellingen. Izzy has a song about a lost watch and a song could well be writ about this one.
WATCH. FOUND AFTER 8 YEARS.
An inscribed gold watch which was to have been presented by the citizens of Bellingen (N.S.W in 1900 to Thomas Byrnes the postmaster in Bellingen mysteriously disappeared before the presentation. It was found on Sunday in a rubbish tip by Joe White, a boy born since the watch was lost. The watch is still in good order, and will be publicly presented to Mr Byrnes.
