I have two worm farms - one at the front of the house and one at the back. About three years ago, I went to put some scraps in the one at the front and uncovered a rat sitting in it - the rat jumped out and ran off very quickly. Ever since, I have tapped on the cover before I lift it up, hoping that any visiting rat will leave before I have to set eyes on it. Rats give me the creeps.
Next Sunday November 11 is the second Walk Against Warming, deliberately planned for two weeks before the election. There will be at least 50 walks across Australia. Sydney’s Walk Against Warming will kick off in The Domain at 1pm, with speakers Cate Faehrmann (executive director of the Nature Conservation Council), Bob Brown and Peter Garrett.
