Elcho feels Echoes of Cyclone Grant

More wet season flowers, and some images of clouds & the big cyclonic tides

…and some scaly friends like Sammy here!


About Wini

If you want to know about me, I think that's good - its nice to care about others, to get out of your own head. Perhaps I will update this with some personal details, but I'd encourage you to write and challenge, or say hi - that's how you can get to know about me, and I about you. One thing I do know, is that I belong to Jesus Christ, and He sent a prophet, Isaiah, who said "Fear Not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name, You are Mine". I don't know what my thoughts were when I began this blog. I've not updated it since I knew the that the Bible was true. The world will do everything it can to keep you out of the Bible - or to undermine it if you do. But facts are facts: God is good. He doesn't lie. He has given us a roadmap, His Living Word. I apologise to any Christians that have read this blog in the past, and been offended by any of its content. Some day I'll get around to deleting it, God willing. One of the truths about loving the Lord, is that you begin to hate sin. Of course we all hate heinous acts like murder and rape, and we all hate suffering and death. Jesus set us free from all that. The worst day I have in this mortal body is going to be the worst day I have, period - but for you who reject your creator, and the free gift of salvation through His Son : your best day in this life? That is it. And every moment in Heaven will be better than that. Ain't much of a contest...if you are not saved, you may think you have a reason. Please contact me - because I wager that the reason is something much more selfish than what you claim... So - this is a test blog. I'm using it to get up to speed, and to practice on, and if you contat me I will be happy to send a link to my self hosted site when its up. Meantime I'll keep writing - on topics close to my heart of course, such as aboriginal issues (e.g. I support homelands, turtle hunting, 2 language schooling, and I am deadset against damaging government programs like Centrelink and pushing the Internet on a People who have never had alcohol and didn't grow up with television...its enough to make you weep when you find out that there is no word for suicide in the Yolngumather - the Peoples Tongue or Languages - and yet now we are getting the highest rates of suicide among the aborigines and also blokes in rural areas. Whitefella, Blackfella - its the same issue: this country used to fear God, and now the arrogance of the Elite govt policy is hitting us where it hurts. A book I recommend : Why Warriors Lie Down to Die, applies to us all. When you destroy the role of men, and tell us that we are no longer required, the Americans shoot each other - we just knock ourselves. Apart from my heart for aussie men of all stripes, I absolutely also advocate for the protection of the smallest guy in the room, the unborn, and I am fully against the pornography industry, and I bitterly despise what the LGBT industry lobby has done. For the sake of a tiny fraction of the country, now all children are having their innocence torn from them down to 3 and 4 years old. You know why. "Out of the mouths of babes comes truth and clarity" : kids know what's what. And the Elites are doing their level best to stuff them up too. In 30 years there will be a revolution of children sueing my generation for the disgraceful way we have robbed them of their childhood. Anyway - I'm not all serious, I love the Lord, and I am a true convert - after believing the narrative of evolution and millions of years for most of my life, and gaining degrees in applied science I noticed serious logical fallacies and a religious devotion to unproven theories - and I recommend that if you too open your mind and consider for a moment the words of 2 Peter, then examine the evidence, that you will find that you just might be looking at evidence of a global flood that completely changed the Earth 5000 years ago, as opposed to the ridiculous concept of uniformitarianism they push on us from a very early age (mosty in sci fi and fiction you will agree if you are honest). So. Enjoy my content, I'd love to hear from you - good and bad or ugly. Meanwhile have a wonderful day out there :~]

    Your photos are great!
    The subjects are fascinating too.
    Are those beautiful flowers related to a passionfruit?

      Dear Jem – its great to hear from you! Thank you for looking at my pictures 🙂

      Your typing is really really good!!! Yes, we used to have a passionfruit at home, and Harry & Sal have one growing at their place.

      I planted a coconut tree here in 2010. And another 3 trees this year. It is fun to see if they are growing and how big they are next time I visit – maybe you can too that would be so fun for you, however: You need to be a bit careful sometimes because there was a very big baru crocodile out the front yesterday. He swam round near the house all day. I will put a photo of him so you can see too. I wish I could come back through Perth, but it is the other direction….well done for reading all of this you are very smart for prep!!!

      Love uncle Harry

    hi henry i liked the big baru out the back. how many sting rays have you caught? you have taken lots of pics with your blue camera (i think they are beautiful)

    love Jono

      Hi Jono
      Yolngu people are born and bred in the hot sand and their name means “saltwater people”. I am going to try to catch a barramundi and i got a bite from a barracuda but mainly have been practicing throwing garra on land (spears). I have a LOT to catch up on. The boys went night fishing last night and speared some redjuk (barramundi). They are quite fantastic! Lots of baru in the waters last night, dead calm and full moon. Didn’t walk too close to the edge!! I didn’t have my torch but still got stung by sandflies. There were no sandflies here till day before yesterday now I can’t sleep!!! The other thing is when they go for turtle and big stingray on the boat they got for hours and hours, and in less than 1 or 2 hours I get cooked! But I do help lots with killing the turtle and helping to cook and making fires and stuff – and I love going on hunting missions, but its a bit scary going out a long way to spear a fish – ANYTHING could be there!! Yesterday I went to town and they had a baby croc – I will post photos soon!!
      Love from Harry

    love jono

  5. Jono says:

    Hi Hen that is actually very big. did sammy nip you?

    love Jono

    • hendorama says:

      Wasn’t sammy the hermit crab? he nipped Makuyuk but I know how to hold him properly. On my birthday I picked up a baby croc he was about 40cm long. I have not hit any stingrays this time they are a different sort of animal to most: once you hit them they attack you. I’m not a good enough shot! Last time I hit a baby one and it did a “J” shape in the water. Bulla (Makuyuk’s Dad) and his mate worked out a way to get the YINDI YINDI MARINJUK (REALLY BIG STINGRAY) while diving: They each have a speargun, and hit it one from each side – but if one of them ever missed (they didn’t) well – hello Steve Irwin. Its actually pretty full on these kids are tough. They speared Mr Greedyman last night – the morons – I went down to the duck farm and he was in with the banana and pawpaw trees in the garden bit. The ducks were all honking and about 8 kids were freaked out so I went in by myslef in the dark with Dad’s windup torch…I thought they were maybe making it up? I got to the end and there he was: Mr Greedyman charged at me when I torched him!! (I ran behind a pawpaw tree). Later I found out they had rocked him in the head and put 2 spears in him….um, that’s not how you kill a piggy piggy!!! Well – they are EXCELLENT sea hunters….go another turtle and more stingrays yesterday – and the bpys have hit a few baby sharks and mangrove jack, mudcrabs and barramundi, who is just starting his season. Mirrarra whose balander name is Henry got the turtle but he is sunburnt – I could tell even though he is black. Imagine if I had gone?!! They were in the boat maybe 6-8 hours, in the hottest time of day – no wind yesterday its filthy stinking hot….I’ll be glad to get back to a cold climate (Summer in Melbourne haha). Miss you buddy, Uncle H
