  2. Recently I have been experiencing visitations by birds on a daily basis. Most notably magpies, but also king parrots and crows. One magpie in particular is now so comfortable that he will eat from my hand. I call him Claude. King parrots are also making daily visits. Crows watch from a distance but are very vocal. This is a new occurrence that started a month or so ago, and it seems to hold some importance, but I'm not sure what to make of it. Magpies seem to be associated with a message to focus on spiritual pursuits rather than material ones (I'm hardly a materialistic person so I think there's something I'm missing). Parrots are associated with the need to be watchful and alert. These are the typical associations in dreams anyway. But my visitations are physical, so I wonder if there is more to the picture. Does anyone have any experience with bird visitation and their symbology?

    Mate if you can make any creature's day better than it might otherwise have been, you're on the right track.

    Acacia ident?

    It's a bit early to say. They all look alike at this stage, and many won't be easily identifiable until they flower years later.

    The Random Thread.

    So I get asked by my work colleagues if I am coming to the work Christmas party. I explained I won't be attending because I don't like any of them and the thought of spending a Saturday night with them filled me with cold dread. We all laughed. They laughed because they thought I was joking. I laughed because I was telling the truth.

    My magpies have disappeared again as quickly as they started coming. Still crows wherever I go talking to me...

    Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm all for its use, I'm just getting a bit sick of the constant claims without any evidence.

    My news feed is constantly full of articles about how cannabis cures cancer. So explain to me why Bob Marley died of melanoma...
  9. My cat sits with me and is very affectionate. Sometimes he suddenly stares off behind my right shoulder, and it freaks me out. What is he seeing? Or hearing?

    My cat freaks me out

    His ears show he is alert. It's always my right shoulder he looks past. I wonder if he's messing with me deliberately!

    Grafting Stock Pros/Cons

    I also like Cereus as a stock, I've had lophs do well on them, and 4 years later still growing. The problem with cereus is that cuts take forever to root.

    Visitation by birds

    A few years ago I was on cactus camp and there was an old male bower bird watching me from a tree across the river for a day. Finally he decided I was OK and he came over for a chat. He stayed close and sang a few songs then it was time to go. That was pretty special. They are the most beautiful birds, iridescent blue black.

    Thanks Micromegas, I always value your response. This evening, yet another new magpie came to visit me. I need to meditate on this.

    I really think these birds are visiting for a reason, it feels important. Like something is about to happen and it might be good...

    Kava in australia?

    Kava was always legal, but import restrictions came in several years ago which made it hard to get hold of. I think 2kg can be brought in with travellers for personal consumption but commercial imports were stopped. I too miss the days I could walk into the Fiji market on King St Newtown and buy a kilo of waqa for $20 or so...

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    Focus on hillsides with a southern or south east aspect. Avoid pastures that have had superphosphate applied, this kills mycelium. Fencelines with trees are always worth a look. Make friends with dairy farmers' daughters!
