Acceding to intelligent trees

Regarding John Boast’s contemplation of the “front of a tree” (C8), Adrian Bell from our Davistown branch says: “In Australia and the southern hemisphere, assuming that looking north might be seen as a forward stance facing the sun, the back of the tree must be the southern side – evidenced by fewer branches and more mossy substances caused by southerlies. This was the traditional technique used to find direction when lost in the bush. Most Australian trees have a leaning to the north from the southerlies’ effects and in seeking the sunshine. They have their own intelligence.”

“My wife and I made hand sanitiser out of alcohol and aloe vera from the garden when there was none in the shops,” reports the resourceful Roger Fuller of Myocum. “I have noticed that my nails which used to split and delaminate are now healthy and strong. I think it’s the alcohol but my wife thinks it’s the aloe vera.”

Rob Woof of South Hurstville writes: “I suspect condensation in aircraft fuel tanks (C8) can be avoided in the same way as in cars and trucks: fill the tank with fuel. Condensation comes from the air drawn in as fuel is used. The air cools overnight and the humidity in the air condenses out. A full tank means no room for humid air. As for the planes parked near Alice Springs, the air out there is too dry for condensation to be an issue, which is why such facilities are always in deserts.”

“It’s understandable that Doug Cameron (C8) would be feeling blue if his bowerbird shot through and shifted the bower too,” thinks Maurice Collins of Wollongbar.

This one’s a beauty. Jennifer Tidey of Mudgee recently “noticed on the window of one of our beautician salons a sign, seemingly professionally done, that said: ‘RETAIL ONLY No beauty treatments ’til COVID-19 f—s off!!’ A good, concise, clear message that leaves one in no doubt. One fed-up beautician methinks.”
