Weekend reading

17 August 2018
 Garden working bee.



It's been a gardening week for me here. My knee is much better so I've been out there planting what I bought on the trip back from Armidale. I'll do a gardening post this week because I have a few things to show you.  Now I'm going out there again to plant up some lettuce and parsley seedlings and radish seeds. I also have bee and butterfly mix seeds and good old nasturtium seeds to fill in some gaps.  Then it's the hardest part for me - waiting until it all grows and blooms.

It's beautiful weather here, 28C today with cool nights down to 7 or 8. There's no humidity yet so the warmer days are really pleasant and ideal for working outside.  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'll see you again next week. 😊

How to turn off Google's location tracking  I found this article during the week and decided to include it here, thinking that I had nothing to worry about because my location service was turned off.  I was shocked a couple of days later when I found info on my phone which listed where Tricia and I had breakfast on the way back from Armidale, where I bought petrol and later some fruit and vegetables. It also recorded our visit to a nursery near Gatton. EVERY place I used my debit card was on that list !! And that list is probably part of a huge list of similar info that will be sold to unknown commercial interests. If you have an iphone, check your location services on that too.
