NOVA PBS - First aired in 2013 and rebroadcasted now.

I watch TV twice a day, at noon lunch and maybe a movie at eight.  I have been catching the topics subject for the last few weeks and saw the conclusion (Strange Creatures) a few moments ago, utterly fascinating.   I have been intrigued by Australia since grade school. Breaking away from Pangea some 175 million years ago to become an "Island Continent" it is slowly drifting North and in a few million years it will rejoin the mainland.  

If geography, history, and archeology captures your attention this is a must see, from the "Big Bang" forward to today you learn about our resident Aussie's homeland, Tanzania, and the Great Barrier Reef.  I ordered the DVD.

Bye the way Western Australia is one of Worlds richest areas for finding Gold and Opals in 2019 and 2020. I have been watching Australian Gold mining, or something close and Opal mining in Western Australia. Very interesting.
   I have been wanting to visit 1 or 2 of our forum members who live in the area. And to swim and snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef. High on my bucket list.
   
Oh well, I can hope can’t I?  Ekitten2 are you still listening?

An Aussi friend and business partner of mine holds patents on processing lithium ore of which Australia is one of the biggest miners in the world.. with the advent of electric cars - I am the least fond of them - this is a high future business potential for Australia.

Well, maybe the continental drift is happening faster than expected.   We haven't been allowed to travel to Tasmania during lock-down.  Maybe it's no longer there???  Huh...
Made its way to Africa and became Tanzania???

Hey, don't push us too far away.  We're going to be the only tourists allowed in so don't shoot yourselves in the foot.

Touche Rod
I love the banter and rivalry between our two countries, sometimes going at it like a couple of siblings but if a third party should have a go at one or the other they suddenly find they've taken on not one but two. Hand Shake

I watched "Mighty Planes" yesterday on the Smithsonian channel.

https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/shows/mighty-planes/boeing-747-8f/1003002/3461842

It was about the 747, but really about Formula E racing and the lithium ion batteries that they use. Packing them for shipment in special containers to ensure they are not damaged leading to explosions and fires is a science. There have been two instances where cargo airplanes have been brought down due to lithium fires, one a 747 documented on "Air Disasters". Packing and loading the racecars too was interesting.
