You haven’t heard little frogs lately. Bush fires across Australia have left them with no place to hide and ...many are threatened with extinction. Leave some logs, water bowls, shade in your yard and help Kermit - we love our frogs.
PS these frogs are real and when I took the photo they looked like they'remade of plaster.

Great photo. You have a wonderful sense of humour, Susanne. Put on a moustache and you'll look like twins!
Yes, I can see the resemblance. And without imagination what are we? Every great idea started with imagination. xxx

12.5 million acres destroyed. More than 20 people died in the fires and many missing. Half a billion animals perished. more than 800 homes destroyed. Mass evacuations.
What stands out. The incredible support of communities and so many Australians - from the wonderful pharmacist whose home burnt down, but opened his pharmacy to provide urgent medicines; the Sikh community who arrived with food trucks; the people who opened their homes; neighbours who fought fires even though they lost their homes; the nearly $2 million donated to the koala appeal to save koalas from the fires ... so many stories of love. From Australia and all over the world. THANKYOU!!!!!!!
Hoping, hoping, hoping rain comes now.

There have been some massive fundraising efforts in NZ and around the world - I've seen a couple. $15m in one, $3m in another.
Community support is what we will remember as a positive in this terrible crisis. In future avoidance - well, it's time we had scientists working out ways to produce massive desalinated pipelines to the outback and vulnerable bushland. There's plenty of water on our planet, and too much spent on sending people to Mars!! Let's fix our own problems first. Water is the most important element in survival all over the world. Imagine (sorry John Lennon) a world where there was sufficient water to grow crops; where barren land became arable. The water is there; too much of it. It's time the scientists got busy and thought of ways to desalinate it. All countries with arid climates should have scientists working on this. The cost? Huge. In years to come the reward - amazing. Stop spending trillions on exploring space until we have solved our planet's problems.
Please stay safe, Susanne. You and all the SCBWI Australia comunity. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all.
Will keep praying for ongoing safety for you and my other Aussie friends.
I love Australia and as we enter the new year, it’s complex. Our flags are half mast on the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the terrible fires that are engulfing us. Huge amounts of money was donated at the spectacular fireworks, to our incredible firefighters . May 2020 protect you and Australia. Love to all. ... See MoreSee Less
Sadness and joy seem to come in pairs, Susy. Happy New Year! ❤️❤️
