Spirituality, the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.

I know, it’s a little random.  What I found interesting is how the program associated the complexity of the brain’s wiring with the complexities of metropolises, computer servers, nature, subconscious, fantasy, etc.  It alludes to the abstract connection between these concepts that we subconsciously know to exist.

Filipino food?  Even she admits how unhealthy some of it is.  Very salty, very fatty.  She gets a craving for it occasionally but we don't have it very often, and some of what she gets, like small dried salted fish, I don't eat.

Wonderful.   I wish I had been there with you - to be able to hear, smell and feel the morning as well as well as to see it.  A feeling of being beside a lake in the early morning I've not felt for more than 20 years.

Arvo..hmmm it's a bit short and fat..and that's no fun having a rattle let's everyone know where they are..

Ours are always in stealth mode..silent and deadly..not a rattle to be heard..😁

Certainly not my photo..I would be to busy going the other way..😬

not a big fan of reptiles. I was under a house doing a telecommunications install decades ago and the homeowner calls to me from the access door, "can you shine your flashlight around down there and tell me if you see my boa constrictor or iguana? they escaped from their cages ..." >gulp<

Morning..I don't mind them at all so long as they stay out in the bush...

Very nice of the homeowner to tell you..I am with you, wouldn't have seen me for dust...

Just got invaded by ants they were after the cats food..left an open can on the sink.. nothing a can of fly spray won't fix..

I am quite partial to my house and don't particularly want it to go up in flames..

Fly spray is perfectly safe here we use it for everything..from blowies (blowflies), mozzies (mosquitos), house flies, ants, cockies (cockroaches), spiders which I don't use it for other than white tailed spiders they have a nasty bite..😁

I can count the number of mosquito bites I've had in the last 2 decades on 1 hand, but spiders think I'm tasty...
