Finished writing my Digital Marketing book today.

The "title" in your photo looks intriguing.  Can you give us
a brief sense of what your work is about?

It is a colloquial Aussie term to explain  frustration with big business.



The Term "Brown eye" is very similar and along the same lines of a frustration shared by those who feel powerless , a tongue in cheek finger at authority.

The need to explain such a term is rarely anticipated

It's a guide for business - how not waste time chasing the Google algorithm but instead focus on user experience & building brand and forget about keyword ranking. I've been doing SEO for about 20 years and its what I've learned. Basically we go in and double retailers revenue by fixing their sites, managing ad spend, increasing conversion rates etc.

As a child in rural America fireworks were a rare event in the 50s.  Now
they're much more common.  We see them frequently in the fall at
High School Homecoming games.

I've always been fascinated by fireworks.  We used to order them by
freight from fireworks companies in Ohio and South Dakota for the
annual 4th of July celebration at home.  A kit for $4.95 contained a
couple of sky rockets with stars, some buzz bombs, several aerial
star shots and about a dozen packets of firecrackers.  All made in
China.  Those were the fun days.  This was back in the 50s.

We had to order them by freight (rail train delivery) because the Post
Office wouldn't deliver them.  We'd pick them up at the local rail
freight delivery office.  I wonder if they even exist nowadays.

Now Pyrotechnics is one of my hobbies.  Learning how to make
fireworks is really easy and the materials are mostly inexpensive.
The sounds, the sights and the smells of fireworks can be very
addictive!  Incredible fun with adequate safety in mind.

Hi muDped.

Here in the last century UK  fireworks were mainly used to celebrate a failed attempt at bringing down parliament, Guy Fawks was the architect.

" Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. There's no good reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot "

For us youngsters preparation could start up to a month before the night where large bonfires were lit and an effigy of Guy Fawks was burnt. Penny for the Guy, was a common practice of wheeling the effigy in a barrow around the streets to add funding for fireworks.

Penny " Bangers " were the most sought after firework by us younger one's. Prankish behaviour like ringing the bell and dropping a lit one near the doorstep then hiding in the shadows to watch the outcome. Hmmm, the things we did back then.

Today, fireworks are still sold for this event but highly restricted. No bangers or jumping jacks, but much more expensive and elaborate ones, and only available to adults.

A misspent childhood? Possibly !!

Cheers Grum.

Hoax it wouldn't make a 50hz arc sound :)
Running rails go back to an earth point, so the energy should be arcing to ground just as well as the running rails and lamp post.

It’s been one of coldest summers I can remember here. Despite the dec bushfires we had snow as well, plus we’ve had heating on during summer which never happens. Apparently agw  is meant to mask the grand solar minimum but I’m not seeing here.

Moving house on Monday, a brand new house on a new housing estate.  Fibre connection already laid on.  Problem is it will take two weeks before an engineer can come and get us connected.  So for the next two weeks I will be offline, although I might occasionally take my tablet to a WiFi hot spot.

Beautiful photo Grum!  Flowers are perhaps the most amazing life form
that we enjoy on Planet Earth.  How do they do it?

Lovely to see Grum. Very wet and cold summer where I am. Been here 6 years this is first time I’ve seen fungi in February. The market garden next door is usually a sandy desert in feb. this year it’s covered with weeds. Could have handled a bit more heat but the cooler conditions are welcome

Meanwhile, it has been unseasonably warm in Missouri this year, after a mild winter.  I welcome that!  About 65F today and sunny.
