Back in those days the sheep's throat were slit, the pigs through an electric bolt. God, crummy subject - enjoy the travels.

The same goes for some other consumption animals, back in the 70's during school holidays I use to work in the abattoirs, one of my tasks was shooting the cows whilst they were in a pen, we use to have a ramp above the pen from where we shoot them from, I will never forget the tears rolling out of the cows eyes prior to being shot.

The pigs knew it was coming also, the sheep did not have a clue.

If in the very south west of WA can thoroughly recommend a boat trip for about 3 hours whale watching in Flinders Bay---fantastic to watch these massive creatures come up and seemingly play with and around the boat.

Flinders Bay is just past Augusta and on the tip of The Southern Ocean, the whales stop off here for a bit of RandR before heading off to Broome where they calve--nurture their calves for few months in warm waters before returning to Antartica from where they have just come. Truly remarkable.

Whale watching season in Flinders Bay lasts June to September but not always just from Augusta--at some point the boat moves to Dunsborough near Busselton.

Be prepared to get sea sick if prone to that--also it is B cold!

How anybody could want to kill and eat whales is totally beyond me and eveybody else on today's trip.

not bad ... but did you watch the recent documentary about the Hindenburg's last flight?
Anyway, the pictorial below, about Turkish Delights, is far more appealing devilsmiley.gif

lol apparently they can fly 3-4km from the crater you'd be running very fast looking backwards at the same time!

On the walk up to the rim of the crater, the slope of the volcano is a graveyard of old bombs - sort of like the used car strip in any major city. It was fun following the trajectories of the bombs as they soared skyward, judging just where to position oneself so that one didn't get killed.
