A message from Brigid ....

I have been a blogger since 2005. At the height of my blogging busy-ness, I had "a small stable" of blogs on different topics: social and political commentary; desert spirituality; food; waste and ....

A few years ago I called time and ceased blogging altogether - although there was an occasional post. I had called it quits. I am an aged woman these days with a couple of serious illnesses. I am not allowed to drive. I am no longer active in organisations. I think it fair to say that I am housebound. I am active on Facebook, although I am not there as often as once I was. I have decided to embark on a re-entry into the blogging world ... beginning with The Trad Pad and, possibly, a return to my food blog, Oz Tucker. I have always used a lot of photographs on my blogs ... and I miss not being out and about with my camera.

The Trad Pad has been my blog for the lovely things of life. The controversial or political has seldom intruded. Occasionally, the spiritual has found its way in, but I kept spirituality for the blog, Desert. I don't yet know if I will revive that. I will stick pretty much to food and the lovely things of life. If I have some regularity with those two categories, I feel that I will be doing well. I hope that, with this blog new friendships can be formed and old friendships renewed; new lovelies discovered; new reflections can enter into the meaning of modern life. I would love to hear from you - particularly if you have suggestions for new topics to enter into the conversation. So, it is a new year. Let's see what it has in store, what it can bring to us. And I hope that those who share the spirit of The Trad Pad can spread the message of a world of beauty, the creativity of humanity, and the joys of simplicity and tradition. ~~~ February, 2017

Calling artists, photographers and the like - come to Buangor on Sunday to help save the ancient and doomed trees

Say your goodbyes to these beautiful old redgums who've been living in the Middle Creek area long before it had that name - 200-400 years previously, at least. Say goodbye to the young trees too. There aren't too many growing on adjacent farmland. NONE of these trees are protected. 
Not by the ‪#‎AndrewsGvt‬.
Not by anyone who has the power to protect them. 

Say goodbye.

Noticed any roads authorities vandalising ancient habitat trees
on the Western Highway lately? 
Come to Buangor on the 3 May - Sunday - 10am to 3pm 
and help record the treasures we are losing. 

Bring all your own materials, picnic, chair, etc. 
(NB - good toilets at Beaufort!) 
The enormous environmental damage being inflicted upon us all 
is to save a TOTAL OF 2 WHOLE MINUTES of travel time 
between Beaufort and Ararat! 
For more details contact as per poster or via WHAM on Facebook

for future generations
