Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Missing this pup ever so much while on holidays. My dad rang tonight to tell me that he let her off for a run around the back paddock. She then proceeded to chase a wallaby down the gulley, crash around in the scrub for about ten minutes, then come back out chasing a fully grown buck deer. No fear and no dull moments. Also pictured is my parents’ red cattle dog pup. Also a crazy young thing.
London Bridge, Australia. It was named this because prior to 1990 it was joined to the mainland by two arches. The one nearest the mainland collapsed and two people were stranded, needing rescue by helicopter.
A big old Mountain Ash. Otway Ranges, Australia.
Panorama of the Grampians National Park.
From the top of Mt Williams. Grampians National Park, Australia. Unfortunately they have had terrible bush fires in the area recently, made evident by the smoke in the background. A beautiful and rugged part of the world. My hat is off to the fire fighters battling the blaze.
Feral Rabbit I shot on a recent hunting trip. Nice and healthy, good eating size. Rat 2 folder for scale.
Koala up a gum tree. Kennet’s River, Victoria.
Thank you to everyone for their interest in my content. I know I’ve been somewhat quiet recently, but I promise I’ll get back into it ASAP! A couple of short reviews, some new acquisitions and maybe a few pics from my recent travels. Coming soon. Thanks again!
Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men,
we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket,
he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being
was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians,
therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know
how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things
that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.
It was a government designed to ensure law and order and subordination by terror, a government designed for men living in servitude rather than for free men.
