18 Days On..............

......and incredibly the fires are STILL burning in Victoria, with an expectation that things will flare up again badly on Friday.
All those poor firefighters (most of them volunteer firefighters) must be utterly exhausted.
It's hard to believe that half of Queensland is under water at the moment.

Anyway, here's a photo of ...... well, I'm not exactly sure.
Probably some sort of hay carrier - he was zooming along a side road

Aradale Lunatic Asylum

That's what it used to be called in the olden days.
Then it was the Aradale Mental Hospital.
It operated for around 130 years, closing in 1997.
Now it is home to the Australian College of Wine.
It's a strange kinda place.

You can see bit and pieces
